The Fujifilm X-A10 has two big things going for it: a selfie screen, and a budget-friendly price tag.
Fujifilm's budget shooter, announced in late 2016, is highlighted by a tilting LCD screen that, unlike earlier models doesn't block off any of the screen when flipping forward for selfies. That screen capability, however, sacrifices the hot shoe slot, which means consumers cannot add an external flash.
While the tilting screen with a 100 percent view is new, the X-A10 embodies much of the features from the older X-A2. Although the X-A2 has now been replaced by the X-A3, Fujifilm's selfie screen mirrorless has more in common with the 16 megapixel X-A2 than the 24 megapixel X-A3. Like the other X-A cameras, the X-A10 uses an APS-C sensor for a high resolution rendering of the colors Fujifilm is known for. What the budget line lacks is the X-Trans style sensor -- the X-A10 still includes the optical low pass filter, which tends to dampen some of the image's finer details.
While the X-A10 is a budget camera, the mirrorless shooter still includes features like Wi-Fi along with manual modes and RAW format for more seasoned shooters. The camera tops out at a burst speed of 6 fps, which isn't bad for a camera at the $500 level.
The bottom line? If price is the biggest consideration, the Fujifilm X-A10 isn't a bad option for consumers that want a camera better than their smartphone without all the extra controls. Photographers looking for more quality -- and the flexibility of adding an external flash -- will want to look at a more advanced option like the Fujifilm X-T10.
