Without a doubt, the Fuji X-T1 has been a huge success for Fujifilm, being one of the most rugged, versatile and very capable interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras on the market. It did not take long for me to fall in love with it – after writing my in-depth review of the Fuji X-T1, I ended up buying one for myself. The X-T1 took the market by storm and many photographers ended up buying that camera either as a primary tool, or as a secondary camera to a full-frame DSLR. Despite the many offerings from Fuji, including the X-A2, X-E2, X-M1 and the X-Pro1, the X-T1 is the camera that made the most impact overall. The success of the X-T1 was the reason why Fuji decided to create a stripped down version of the same camera at a lower price point and that’s how the Fuji X-T10 was born.
Without a doubt, Fuji’s X-T1 has been a huge success for the company and for a good reason – the camera is outstanding in many ways, as I have pointed out in my in-depth review of the camera. I have been a proud owner of the X-T1 for over a year and the camera continues to amaze me, especially after Fuji’s constant firmware refreshes, which make it better each time (and it is supposed to get even better with the upcoming 4.0 firmware). But at its current MSRP price of $1300, the X-T1 is not a cheap camera to own. Which is why Fuji decided to release a smaller brother of the X-T1, the Fuji X-T10. With the same superb 16 MP APS-C X-Trans sensor, 3″ tilting LCD, 8 fps continuous shooting, 2.36 Million dot OLED electronic viewfinder, advanced autofocus system, built-in flash and similarly beautiful design, the X-T10 offers quite a bit for its $800 price tag.
