The camera comes in two colors: Champagne Gold and Black. Both come with the normal simulation modes but not the extra film modes found in the X-Trans series of cameras.

In high-performance mode, the camera startup time is approx 0.7 secs.

The Lens

The XF10 comes with a fixed 18.5mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 stoppable down to f/16  (1/3EV step). The lens is constructed with 5 groups of 7 lenses, 2 aspherical glass moulded lens included and controlled with 9-blade aperture diaphragm. Focus distance is approx. 10cm – Infinity / 3.9in. – Infinity.

The camera ships with the NP-95 Lithium Ion battery, the same used for the X100 series of cameras, giving us approximately 330 frames or 70 mins of full HD video.

The FUJIFILM XF10 is the first X Series camera to feature a number of new functions. It has an updated way to automatically transfer images to a smartphone and the “SNAPSHOT” mode, which presets the focus and aperture to 2m/F8 or 5m/F5.6.

The 24.2 megapixel APS-C sized sensor combined with FUJIFILM’s proprietary color reproduction technology allows the XF10 to produce high-quality images that will suit a wide variety of needs.

In addition, the XF10 is the first X Series camera to feature a number of new functions. It has an updated way to automatically transfer images to a smartphone and the “SQUARE MODE” which allows you to switch to 1:1 format with a single flick on the touchscreen, to name just two.

Despite its pocketable size and minimal weight of only 280g, thanks to the high-quality components and new functionality, the XF10 is the perfect companion for smartphone users and photo enthusiasts alike.’
