In what seems to be the smaller alternative for X-T1, Fujifilm touts the anti-smartphone camera X-T10 the best pick for its price. Basically, X-T10 is projected towards traditional photographers who are obsessed with the complexities of manual camera adjustments or settings. In other words, Fujifilm claims X-T10 to be a handy and worthy companion for the ones who despise touchscreen and adore the touch of physical buttons.

Despite a substantial price cut compared to X-T1, Fujifilm made sure to not compromise with the intricacies and features in its latest flagship X-T10, since it boasts most of the former flagship's features. X-T10 sports a 16-megapixel APS-C sensor, real time electronic viewfinder, video recording supported up to 1080p full HD at 60 fps (frames per second) at several frame rates and is designed to shoot 8 fps when in burst mode.  

According to Mashable, one can easily mistake the X-T10 for an old camera. It might exude an outdated look, but it is a powerful and innovative camera inside. Further, another aspect making the X-T10 stand apart from the league of other mirrorless cameras is the presence of several controls and dedicated dials which according to Mashable are quite tempting.

One of the major downfalls of X-T10 is that the camera is not fully weather-proof. Thus, it might be a big turn-off for outdoor shoots especially during heavy rains, as the camera might attract moisture.

Unlike its previous counterparts, the X-T10 is plastic body and not metal. The display screen lacks touchscreen, which might dismay some individuals, but that's the main catch here, because Fujifilm is touting X-T10 as their new anti-smartphone camera. Thus, the company has settled with a minimalist and anti-smartphone design.

The camera comes with built-in WiFi and supports connectivity to both Android as well as iOS powered devices. Battery life on the other hand is also not upsetting, as the X-T10 can withstand up to 340 shots for each charge. 

Turning dials and pressing buttons might sound a daunting task, but it can pay off in the form of splendid, beautiful and precious memories. Fujifilm expects the X-T10 to become a huge success among camera enthusiasts.

X-T10 might prove to be the best pick for the ones who are looking for a camera devoid of smartphone intricacies. In that case, we can assert that the physical dials/buttons are definitely here to stay with us for a good amount of time.
