I am intrigued by this camera - it lacks some of the retro charm of the earlier Fujifilm cameras, but apparently offers great value and what looks like a very simple and straightforward user interface that may actually be more effective (for me) than the retro UI fujifilm are usually associated with.

What no reviews so far have mentioned is: How is the shutter sound on this camera? Is it the same as X-T4, is it louder - what does it compare to...?

Is the AF really as good as the X-T4? (or X-T3 after the latest FW update?)

Would love to hear from people that have had the opportunity to handle this camera, what they think.

I'm debating if I should just go with a couple of X-S10's rather than two Canon R6's - the latter are probably better, as they should be considering the price difference - but is it really worth it, especially as I will need at least two identical bodies? I am having a hard time justifying the ridiculous expense of two new Canon RF system bodies and a trio of RF lenses...

Would love to hear from other Canon shooters if you are wrestling with the same idea, and what your thoughts are - not to mention real-life experience if you have been able to try out both systems.

I love the Dual Pixel Af on my 5D mkIV - can I expect the eye AF on the X-S10 to be a good substitute? Right now I really miss having the dual pixel Af in the viewfiinder of my 5d4, so I expect the x-s10 to feel like an upgrade in terms of getting the eye AF inside the EVF.

My main reasons for switching/upgrading would be the usual mirrorless advantages - less mirror/shutter noise, lighter weight, WYSIWYG EVF, more accurate AF - and cost savings versus FF.

What I am afraid to lose is dependable continous AF, as that used to be the achilles heel with earlier generations of Fujifilm cameras (last time I dipped my toe into Fujifilm waters was with the X-Pro2). Would you say the Af tracking ability have now reached a point where it can track running subjects dependably for action photography?

I expect the newer Fujifilms will pretty much close the gap with regards to dynamic range compared to my older 5D's. And the new 50 f1.0 will hopefully provide all the bokeh I need for portraits.



Putting cost restrictions to one side the x-s10 limitations are in no particular order;

Battery, older battery compared to x-t4

evf, low resolution compared to x-t3/4

raw buffer, 20 frames from memory

weather sealing, none

Buttons, limited

real biggie imo, uhs-i, so shallow raw buffer and slow to clear too

But there are many pluses too;


familiar pasm control for many



latest af
