The grip is very good. You can easily hold the camera with a serious lens (16-80) using three fingers as shown above. I do use a wrist strap in practice but it's much easier to hold the camera with the weight on your fingers.
I’d be interested to learn of your thoughts on the EVF? I have an XT1, my understanding is the XS10 has a slightly lower magnification factor than the XT1.

How does the 16-80 perform on the front? Weighing just less than the body it should balance fairly well? I’ve been a big fan of the 18-55 for years, less range but light, discreet and still delivers.

Alright, Steve... another question:

I notice the X-S10 is UHS-I compliant but not UHS-II. Still... there's a great range of speeds that fall under UHS-I. Most of my UHS-I cards are SanDisk Extreme Pro, offering 90 MB/s write speeds.

Now, I doubt you know the maximum write speed of the X-S10 (finding out this kind of thing as always been difficult, regardless of manufacturer). But are you running 90 MB/s cards or the latest UHS-I cards that offer up to something like 170 MB/s? And what is your experience?

There's no way this camera is going to offer the kind of buffer speeds and capacity that, say, the X-T4 offers. But what are we talking about in the real world? Any issues with burst and buffer?

The EVF is fine for me. It’s just like the Xt30, which I also have. It would be really hard if I wore glasses, however. You really need your eye against the eyepiece to not clip the corners.
The 16-80 still feels a bit front heavy but the grip means you can still one-hand it. With the xt30, I really need to support the weight by holding it by the lens.

This one’s tough. The cards I use are 80 mb/s but I really don’t do burst shooting. I’ll try it tomorrow. Question: how should do that?

Both the XS10 and XT30 have a magnification of 0.62x and an eyepoint of 17.5mm, my old XT1 comes in at 0.77x and 23mm. And I wear glasses ☹️

I wonder if Fuji will release a big brother next year, XS1. A bit more XH1/XT4 size, bigger battery, 2 SD slots, better EVF and weather sealing??

I will admit that watch Kasey Stern, the Canadian vlogger that produces Camera Conspiracies. Most of my video knowledge comes from him. His videos are truly weird, so, of course, I find them very humorous. His review of the X-S10 was totally from a vlogger POV, which had no effect on my purchasing decision. I refer to this as "research".


Remember, you have been warned.

Hi Steve,are you able to comment on the DR of these Fuji's vs Nikon crop by any chance? I once owned a D5200 ages ago and was quiet impressed.
Nope. The only Nikon I have ever owned was a Coolpix A, which technically counts I suppose. I posted many pictures here: An Old Town and a New Camera, Part 1 , and I think DPR has a sample gallery as well.

OK, so the card I actually have in the X-S10 is the Lexar SD XC II, 64 GB, 1667X, 250 MB/s. No idea how good that is in the scheme of things, but it's clearly UHS ii card in a UHS 1 slot. I got off 17 shots at 8/s before it slowed down. Of course, I was shooting Fine JPEG +Raw. Shooting JPEG only, I just stopped when I got bored, 145 shots. I'll try it again when I remember to actually put in a UHS 1 card.

Agreed. I just wish I knew for certain - and when to expect It.
I suspect Fuji is sampling the market with the X-S10. One thing I do notice is that increasingly the X-S10 seems like a Fuji version of the OM-D series with friendlier menus and the X-Trans sensor. Even Olympus started moving in the film simulations approach with the Pen F. This is all a good thing IMHO.

I love Kasey's stuff. Always fun.

My guess is that the X-H2 will be the big brother. With everything you mentioned plus a new, better IBIS unit.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the X-H2 is actually named an X-S1. Would make much more sense in the Fuji lineup naming, while also allowing Fuji to move past the “flop” that was of the first H series (Note: I am not knocking that camera, just the marketing/timing).

I tried the partial color filter on some small tree bare for winter except for some berries.

I think that's a real possibility. I suspect the X-S1 would be a smaller and lighter body type. Fuji may think that the size/weight of the X-H1 was not desirable for enough Fuji users.

Well, maybe it was warm afterglow from Thanksgiving dinner, but I've just pulled the trigger on an X-S10 with 16-80mm. My larger Fuji lenses will fit and I'm not sure I need the X-T4. Besides, I keep thinking about the X-S10 like I never did the X-T4 and the value is incredible.
