Looks like they're trying to beat Ricoh to market with their own GRIII.

jsrockit 07-18-2018 10:15

Exactly...

BillBingham2 07-18-2018 10:34

Where's my hot shoe for my brightline finder for bright days?

On the Fujifilm X70... ;)

jsrockit 07-18-2018 18:52

I'm wondering what the price in the US will be... $599? $499?

kshapero 07-18-2018 19:42

could be a nice rig to always be by your side.

eckhardf 07-18-2018 22:09

DPReview has news up on its site now: shipping in August for $500.

Yeah it's only 10ounces (279g) :eek:

ruby.monkey 07-19-2018 01:39

No accessory shoe? That's not going to make me want to give up my GR.

NickTrop 07-19-2018 03:30

Even if I was interested in such a camera -- no hotshoe (for a finder), no sale.

Archlich 07-19-2018 04:35

Essentially a X-A5 with the X70 lens, intended for casual users. The price is good, but too many feature were cut. It's not a GR contender, nor is Fuji marketing it as one.

Interestingly they've put a semi-usable "Snapshot" feature into the camera - you can set the camera to shoot at 2 meters at f/8, or 5 meters at f/5.6. Quite a detour I say. Maybe Ricoh had indeed patented its Snap mode after all.

NeonKnight 07-19-2018 05:15

Looks like it has the newer 24.2 MP sensor, wonder if it will have the Acros simulation?

nightfly 07-19-2018 05:42

It's curious to me the choices they made with this camera.

If it's intended for people who want more control than a phone offers, why remove the dedicated dials from the X70 that appeal to more enthusiast users?

It seems confused as to what it is. I think there's already a niche market for compact cameras with bigger sensors but people who care about such things probably also want dedicated controls rather than a touch screen.

Not dumping my GR anytime soon. I actually wish the GR had the control setup of the X70 but of course you can program the buttons and knobs to do anything you want. It is nice to see your settings at a glance with the camera off.

I hope so... but if not I`m ok with this camera as my updated GR. I don`t care about snap focus, 4k, tilt screens, the hot shoe, etc. I do care about having a modern sensor and faster low light AF. At $500 new, the used price will be $300 in no time.

Landberg 07-19-2018 13:23

I’m waiting for the GRIII. But if they dont fix the dust problem i will give the new Fuji a shot.

dfatty 07-19-2018 13:43

i'm a big fan of small apsc-sensor cameras, esp with touchscreen.

seems like it's a bayer sensor and not an x-trans, from what i read somewhere? works for me.

It would be interesting to see how many people actually use the shoe on cameras of this genre.

Thatīs what Fuji aims to make money :D

Nothing new so far with this P&S compact - my 5ct.

retinax 07-19-2018 14:48

The price and sensor sound great. I prefer the GR feature set, but as I won't shell out for the new GR III, which will probably be quite a bite more expensive, anytime soon, this for me needs to be compared to the GR I or II. Tempting because this sensor would allow to crank up the ISO, stop down to 11 or 16 and use manual pre-focus which would be as fast as snap focus. Although I haven't used snap focus as much as I like the idea, I must admit. Touchscreen would be new to me on a camera, not too thrilled about the prospect, would need to test it.
No not shoe bothers me in theory but in practice, I liked to GR for actually fitting in pants pockets, so no accessory finder for me.

As for the dust issue, I'm not holding my breath. An extending lens will always suck in air. A filter could help, but that would mean the rest of the extending lens assembly would need to be airtight, which is difficult to do I think.

This was what I thought before I got a GR. Once I started using the GR I never considered a finder necessary.

It seems like generally it is more for an OVF more than a flash...

Not much of a review, but some better photos of it here...

Any sign of the manual yet? I'd like to learn more.

When you try to get the manual, the Fujifilm site says:

FUJIFILM XF10
*Coming in August 2018

Nice comparison, getting me interested.

Still miss a cold shoe, but if it's a real issue I can hack it.

Hey John,

Here's what I think about the upcoming GRIII: It will stand up to a 24mp sensor no problem. It's not that huge of a difference. I can't think of one lens on the market, from any brand, that became useless at 24mp when it worked excellent on 16mp.

D :)

Canyongazer 07-25-2018 13:39

re: shoe
I wonder what percentage of potential customers for a $500 camera are itching to get a $200 OVF for it?

I agree. I expect, if the GRIII is released, it will be a much better camera than this. However, it will be about $800 or so too. This XF10 is interesting due to the cheap price, it being a Fuji, and it being new.

or even know that something like an OVF exists...

aizan 07-25-2018 19:31

will one of these things ever get a built-in EVF?!

NickTrop 07-25-2018 20:03

This camera would be great if it was edible.

I've hung onto my X-E2 and recently bought used the excellent 27mm 2.8 pancake. Was going to have them welded together but in the end realized it would be much cheaper to simply never take the 27 off. (keeping in mind I like a 40mm FL) ;-)

Small body, very small lens, EVF and small money.

If 27 is too long I guess the larger, more expensive 18mm would work.

btw, I do not find the 27's f 2.8 max aperture a detriment --- it performs surprisingly well wide open.
Ditto on the "no aperture ring!?!" Easily accommodated, in my experience.

Bonus: X E2 has a built in bounce-able flash.

At this size, probably not. Sony has done it in the RX100 series, but it isn`t the ideal set-up. Small and flimsy.

If you're in serious need, and care more about the imagery than the camera; given the space on the top plate, epoxy a shoe to the top plate.

As per John's link, lots of room for a shoe.
https://digitalfoto.dk/kamera/kompak...ed-stor-sensor

If I liked the camera and used it a lot, I wouldn't think twice about gluing a shoe to the top plate. Though, I might have my machinist or, camera repair guy do the work.

Look what Stephen has.. plus a shoe from the camera repairman and a tube of good epoxy ..

Use good glue!

Alignment might be easy, but properly clamping it in the aligned position might be tricky. Best done in a cold environment (so you have time to move it if necessary) and properly clamp it in place for 24 hours. My question is, who has the better clamps for delicate work, my machinist, who repairs fine instruments, or the camera repair guy?

It looks like a very useable camera. The finder would be necessary for my comfort.
