James: Hi I'm James, and welcome to Get Teducated. This is the Fujifilm X-T10 compact system camera, which is almost like a slightly smaller, budget version of the incredible X-T1.

Don't expect budget performance though, much like it's bigger brother, the X-T10 still uses Fuji's own 16 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS sensor and EXR processor combination which we know to deliver excellent colour and low light image quality. The body itself is mostly made of magnesium alloy, giving it a really nice solid feel and I was pleasantly surprised by how well these control dials worked, operating as both a scroll wheel and a button for accessing menus.

Another similarity that it shares with the X-T1 is the focusing system, though while the X-T1 requires a firmware update to access the new functions, the X-T10 has the updates straight out of the box. These updates mean faster and more accurate autofocus in lower lighting conditions, as well as new tracking modes and face detection which also finds your subjects eye to make sure your portraits photos are focused in just the right spot. This is an excellent feature because getting focus right for portraiture is crucial, and with Fuji's range of high performance lenses, you can expect incredibly sharp and detailed images when focused correctly. Fuji further tries to ensure this by incorporating the Lens Modulation Optimiser which originally debuted in the X100 series. LMO as it's referred to, knows the specific characteristics of each lens and means the camera can compensate for softness which usually occurs towards the edges of the frame or at very small aperture settings, ensuring the maximum possible performance from every lens.

As usual on a Fuji camera, we have a list of film simulation modes to choose from which attempt to recreate the colours produced by classic Fuji film, and another nice feature is the ability to customise most of the buttons and dials to suit your usage. I like the built-in flash even though it's not something I'd want to use all the time, but when you do need to use it it's ready to go in an instant. Like most cameras, it has a single SD memory card slot and takes a lithium rechargeable battery which will generally last for around 350 shots per charge, and despite the retro looks it does have WiFi capability which allows you to remotely control the camera as well as download photos wirelessly to your phone or tablet using the Fuji Camera Remote app.

That's all for now...
