(Pocket-lint) - One of the things that's become synonymous with Fujifilm's X-series mirrorless cameras is the series of classic dials present, used to take full manual control of settings. After all, the competition rarely have such complex-looking setups.

Just because it's simplified its design ethos, however, doesn't mean the X-S10 has cut back on its specification. As with the recent X-T4, it has 2.16 million phase detection pixels, along with subject tracking and face/eye AF detection capability. The best part is that it only costs $100 more than the X-T30, at $1,000 (£950.00) for the body only or $1,400 (£1,300) with the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 R lens kit.

Unlike other mid-range mirrorless X series cameras, the X-S10 features an ergonomic magnesium-alloy grip, and the front and top place construction is also magnesium alloy.

The camera body is partly made of magnesium alloy for increased durability in a small footprint.

FUJIFILM Film Simulation Modes were created to celebrate the history of photographic film by digitizing some of the industry's most iconic analog films. X-S10 features 18 Film Simulation Modes, including ETERNA Bleach Bypass, which creates a lovely, desaturated, high-contrast look. It also supports blackout-free shooting for bursts as high as 30 fps with the electronic shutter. The LCD monitor can rotate up to 180 degrees, "making it useful not only for capturing selfies, but also for taking stills and videos from various angles".

Light Priority, Resolution Priority Model, and Frame Rate Priority.

In addition to X-S10's IBIS, its Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) mode powerfully compensates for camera shake even when walking with the camera.

The camera supports 4K video recording, 30 fps, 10-bit representation, and 4: 2: 2 downsampling (only when using an external recorder, 8-bit representation, and 4: 2: 0 downsampling are available when recording to the card). Adding IS Mode Boost provides even more stabilization, almost eliminating camera shake when it is used from a fixed, hand-held position.

If you're shooting wide-open on the new 50mm f/1.0, the camera should now be able to focus all the way down to -7EV. It should arrive in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom starting in November 2020.
