I tried the x-s10 in a shop, owner of an x-t3


I just wanted to see if you had the same feeling towards the x-s10

This is NOT an IQ test as it's 99.9% the same, this is an ergonomic and design test

Yesterday I finally visited a fujifilm shop and tried the x-s10 there, I own an x-t3 for 2 years and before that an x-t10 and x-t20.

-The x-s10 was just close to an x-t30, and well from face it's exactly the same design minus of course the grip, so yeah the retro feeling is less than x-t line but still there.

-From top view the x-s10 is a bit cheaper looking than the x-t3, I think the big empty surface and blank dialers are the culprit, Fujifilm could  have at least added some markers like small lines to make it more "alive"

-The dials are not bad, they have a nice click when turning but not as good as with the x-t3 dials

-The screen! As much as I hated the flippy screen on the x-t4 when I tried it because it's making the body way too large, on the small x-s10 it's really not bad, even borderless enjoyable!

-The grip is fantastic, I was holding the x-s10 + 18-55 one handed and could take photos very easily

-I have found  the touchscreen a bit more responsive than x-t3

Would it replace my x-t3? I don't know, it all depends on how slow could it get with my 16 f1.4 for a good success rate (actually 1/60 on my x-t3) , as ibis is the only real advantage I am seeking in this x-s10
