Fujifilm X-S10 vs X-T3 For The $999 Win


The Fujifilm X-S10 has been called a mini X-T4 by many and for good reason, it is an incredible value that brings IBIS to lower end X series cameras, but how does it compare to the X-T4’s predecessor the X-T3 which is now at the same price point as the X-S10?

Image Quality – Tie
Identical if there is no vibration

Weather Sealing – X-T3
Fujifilm X-T3 since X-S10 doesn’t have weather sealing

Styling – Subjective
Similar but I personally prefer the X-T3 to X-S10

Ergonomics – X-T3 unless you must have a large grip
Similar, but the X-S10 might have an edge if you prefer a deeper grip, or the X-T3 might edge it out if the build quality is what you value, also the X-S10 doesn’t have a d-pad just a joystick and the X-T3 does so the X-T3 is best if you do not like to use the touch screen

Usability – X-T3
X-S10 is designed for one-hand use, but the X-T3 is a bit better spaced out with its retro dials, which I prefer

IBIS – X-S10
X-S10 is the only option here, but if you do not want IBIS X-T3 is the way to go

Full Auto Shooting – X-S10
Fujifilm X-S10 is designed for beginners, but X-T3 will help you learn photography and you can set everything to A if you want to shoot automatic

SD Card Backup – X-T3
Fujifilm X-T3 has two card slots, while the X-S10 only has one

Rear screen – X-T3 for photos and X-S10 for video
X-T3 flip-up screen is better for photography, but the X-S10 has a selfy screen

EVF – X-T3
X-T3 wins hands down since it is the same as the X-T4 viewfinder

Video – X-T3 for 4k60p and X-S10 for IBIS
X-T3 has 4k 60p, but X-S10 has IBIS that helps you keep your footage stable

Flash – X-S10
X-S10 has a pop-up flash, but the X-T3 does not

Size – X-S10
Fujifilm X-S10 wins

Overall
X-T3 wins 5 categories hands down while the X-S10 wins 4 and the other categories are a bit more subjective. I personally would pick the X-T3 as a more photographer that doesn’t do much video, but if I were buying for someone getting into photography or someone that might do more run and gun video work I would get them the X-S10, but if you have the money the X-T4 is the best of both worlds and it can’t be beaten.
