Fuji X-T10 hands on review
Maarten | On 28, Sep 2015
I’m immediately drawn to Fuji’s X-series cameras. Their design, functionality and the quality of the images never fail to impress me – so I’m always happy to receive the latest model to review.
The loan coincided nicely with a trip to France, cycling along the Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Sète followed by a few days in Paris. I also took advantage of the X-T10 to shoot on-camera segments for my review of the Nikon 1 J5.
If you’d like to see the images in more detail, and check out their EXIF data, all photos used in the review are available on flickr.
The lack of a live video output not only inhibits the X-T10’s ability as a video camera, it also reduces my ability to provide more interesting sample images as I create the screen captures to illustrate settings, options and menus. The screen captures are recorded using the Sony A6000 with a SEL30M35 macro lens while both cameras are mounted on a rig I’ve improvised using components from Shape, Manfrotto and Wooden Camera. Screen captures are edited, condensed and sometimes have their speed adjusted to make the images fit the dialog.
The on-camera scenes were recorded on a Sony NEX VG20 with the SEL 16-70. Camera close-ups were recorded using a Sony a6000, with SEL30M35 for macro shots. VO recorded using a Rode NT-USB. On camera, I use the Sennheiser ew-2 wireless system. I use the x-rite colorchecker passport for white balance and colour reference.

The X-T10 kit was on loan, and has been returned. I am not affiliated with or compensated by Fuji, any other camera or device manufacturer.
As always, if there are any details I’ve overlooked, I welcome (and reply to) your comments and questions.
