The “Fuji Guys”, a.k.a. Billy and Greg from Fujifilm Canada, have posted a video demonstrating the new FinePix X10. There is a lot of marketing hype in the video, but you get to spend 16 minutes learning about every aspect of the new high-end point-and-shoot camera.
We’ve made particular note of:
- Standard optical viewfinder, no information overlay.
- High precision 4x manual zoom using a metal cam-driven mechanism. Twist lens zoom ring to turn the camera on. Optical image stabilisation.
- 7 blade aperture system but no built-in ND filter.
- 1cm macro.
- Magnesium alloy construction and metal lens cap like the X100.
- Software and buttons similar to the X100 with some improvements, mode dial instead of shutter speed dial. Fuji has kept the dedicated ‘Raw’ button… why?
- 1080p video 30fps.
Video is after the break for your enjoyment.
