The Fujifilm X70 left behind a legacy for point and shoot cameras. It had an amazing autofocus system, high res imagery and a lens that was perfect for any street photographer/everyday shooter. Fast forward to present day, and it’s successor as arrived in the form of the Fujifilm XF10.

Design and Handling
Design wise the Fujifilm XF10 is pocketable and thin. It has minimal dials, a 3 inch touchscreen, HDMI port and mic/remote port. With its minimalistic design and ease of controls the XF10 is perfect for any beginner or smartphone camera user. Furthermore it has all the dials required to be used fully manual.
Like the X70 the Fujifilm XF10 is a true performer. The autofocus is super snappy and now includes an exciting new feature called “Snapshot AF”. Snapshot AF is a pre focusing system that focus at two apertures and distances: F8 at 2M and F5.6 at 5M. This is extremely beneficial for street photographers or anyone looking to pre focus to reduce the risk of missing a shot. We’ve attached some photos shot with snapshot below.
Image quality on the XF10 is brilliant. The 24MP APS-C sensor really pops full of colour and detail. Meanwhile the 18.5mm lens performs well in multiple lighting environments including high sunlight and low light. The images come out quite sharp but do contain a slight amount of linear distortion and vignetting.
The Fujifilm XF10 brings a lot to the table, especially for it’s price point. It’s a great travel point and shoot camera for beginners or enthusiasts. Watch our video below for our full thoughts and video tests on the XF10.
