Fujifilm X A10 Black (11)

The Fujifilm X-A10 is Fujifilm's cheapest entry level X-mount mirrorless camera, available for around £450 with lens, and features a 16 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a 3inch tilting screen, 6fps continuous shooting, with a retro design. 

Fujifilm X-A10 Features

Fujifilm X A10 Black (2)

The Fujifilm X-A10 is a new entry-level mirrorless camera from Fujifilm and features a 16 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. The camera offers an extended ISO range of ISO100 to ISO25600, with the standard range being ISO200 to ISO6400. The camera does not feature the X-Trans CMOS sensor that can be found on the X-T20, X-T2, and X-Pro2

The X-A10 features a retro black and silver design. On the back, there's a tilting screen, and the screen will tilt down, as well as forwards, making it ideal for selfies or group photos. The top cover and front plate are made of plastic, and the top dials are made of aluminium, improving the feel of the camera.

The auto focus system can detect faces, and also has eye-detection AF so that you can ensure any portrait photos are correctly focused on your subject's eyes. There is no flash hot-shoe, and for this, you'd need to look at the Fujifilm X-A3.

Features, compared to the X-A3:

  • 16mp APS-C CMOS sensor - 24 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor on X-A3
  • 3inch touch-screen, 1040K dots on X-A3
  • FullHD video at 60fps (30fps on X-A10/X-A2)

The Fujifilm X-A10 is available as a kit with the Fujinon XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Unlike Fujinon XF lenses, the XC lens does not feature an aperture ring, so you'll need to use the camera's controls when you want to change the aperture of the lens. 

The X-A10 records FullHD video at 30fps, with stereo sound. There's also electronic 5-axis image stabilisation available while recording. 

Wi-Fi is built-in, and this supports direct printing to the Instax Share SP-2. You can send images to your smartphone, and use Fujifilm Camera Remote to remotely control your camera, as well as send location (GPS) data from your smartphone to your camera to geotag your photos. Another option available lets you backup to your PC, over Wi-Fi.

Fujifilm X-A10 Handling

Fujifilm X A10 Black (6)

The Fujifilm X-A10 feels quite good in the hand, with the faux leather covering giving the camera a more premium feel. The top of the camera is made of plastic, as is most of the rest of the camera, however, the top dials are made of metal, with a reassuringly solid feel to them, giving a boost in confidence.

The pop-up flash is constructed with a combination of metal and plastic parts. The hinge for the screen is solid. Unfortunately, the bottom of the camera is plastic, and if knocked, the side next to the battery can come free from the camera body and needs popping back in. 

There's a top Fn (Function) button, that can be customised. There's a top command dial, as well as a rear one, that can be pushed down to change settings. There are 49 focus points, and face-detection focus helps ensure your subjects are in focus.

The front of the camera has a handgrip that provides a reasonable area to grip, and on the back, there's a rubberised section for your thumb. We'd still recommend using the provided strap, as the camera may become slippery if your hands sweat.

Viewing angles are good, and the screen is bright and clear, with good colour reproduction. Thanks to the tilting screen, it's possible to angle the screen for the best view, which can help with visibility when using the camera outdoors in bright light.

Menus – The menus are clearly laid out with a number of photo options and settings. Movie settings are a sub-menu of the photo options, and unfortunately, they don't have their own menu screen. 

Wi-Fi features - Using Fujifilm's Remote Camera app, available for iOS and Android devices, you can remotely control and shoot with the camera as well as start/stop video recording. You can select photos to transfer to the smartphone or tablet or receive photos sent from the camera. In addition, you can use the app to add GPS / geotagging information to photos. The app is quite easy to use.

Battery life - Battery life is rated at 410 shots according to Fujifilm / CIPA test results, which is quite good for a CSC and should mean you won't need to charge the battery too often.
