X-Photographer Andile Bhala on the Fujifilm X-S10

I was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with the new Fujifilm X-S10 to try out in different spaces and testing the JPEG files. If you’re new to Fujifilm cameras, the X-S10 comes across as one of the more user-friendly mirrorless options around, complete with a handgrip that helps with useability.

I wanted to check out how this camera performs in the real world, so I took it out with me to the city for some street vernacular photography. I shot mostly JPEG using the 18 different Fujifilm film simulations available on the X-S10.

Autofocus is pretty amazing on this camera, which is a blessing for street photography. For me, the X-S10 turned out to be the most comfortable camera to hold thanks to the new hand grip, plus it’s both small and light, once again helpful when you shoot street.

The camera fought the darkness well for my liking, no thanks to the X-S10’s five-axis In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), which was quite amazing at a lower shutter speed. It’s crazy how the X-S10 is so much better in low light, and I was comfortable bumping up the ISO for even higher shutter speeds.

As with the other Fujifilm X-series cameras, it’s easy to customise all the different dials to arrange for a setup that makes the most sense for you as a photographer. I would encourage photographers to play around with all the different settings and dials to find a setup that works best for the type of photography they do.

It’s easy to believe that a new photographer can pick up the X-S10 and be able to create beautiful images that hardly need grading (editing) afterwards. The X-S10 is ideal for Fujifilm photographers looking to upgrade, or new photographers looking for an easy-to-use camera that does not cut back on features.
