Fujifilm X10 enthusiast retro camera gets hands-on review

Sporting deliciously old-school retro looks that give it that 1960s street-shooter look, Fujifilm’s X10 enthusiast compact camera has just had an early hands on preview from the folks at DPReview.

The camera is the smaller brother of the stunningly beautiful – but slightly flawed –  Fujifilm X100, and offers a similarly reassuring rugged body and enough buttons and knobs to keep all-tweakin’ pros happy.

Sporting a 12MP EXR CMOS sensor, the X10’s stand out features are the nippy 28-112mm F2.0-2.8 lens and optical viewfinder offering 85% coverage.

There’s also a 2.8″, 460,000 dot LCD around the back, with Fujifilm claiming continuous shooting up to 7fps at full resolution (10fps at 6MP).

The brief hands on preview found autofocus speeds to be “pretty fast”, but shot-to-shot speeds were deemed a little slow.

Another concern was the ease in which the camera could be accidentally turned off , thanks to the on/off switch being on zoom control ring.

We’ll look forward to the full review in time, but here’s DPReview’s hands on video:
