    The XS10 is a great camera. I use it professionally for portraits, travel & fineart landscape photography.
    I’m currently in New zealand and the XS10 with 18mmf2, 35mm1.4 and 55-200mm is my only gear.
    I got it because of size, IBIS, grip and price. I got used to the PASM dial after about a week. I’ve had the camera nearly 2 years now and it has won me a few awards and taken shots that has paid it off many times.
    Wish it was WR. My next camera will probably be the Xpro 4. But I would love a combo of Xpro 4 & XE5 with IBIS and WR.
    Currently doing a 365 project with the XS10.

    Sincerely Johan O E

      Hi Johan and thank you so much for the message and input!

      To be honest i shot about 2000 more pics on it and starting to really enjoy it a lot!

      I crave for the 35 1.4 since i don’t own a fast lens on Fuji and lately i stumbled on occasions where i could have used a f1. 4 or a f2 lens.

      55-200 is amazing, my fav lens!

      Will be checking your project!

      All the best,

        Thanks man….
        I try not to use the screen so I flipead it so I can’t see it. I bought an eyecup for really sunny days.
        With the XF35mm1.4 it is great. My mini Leica Q2 😁. Also try vintage lenses! It’s great with the IBIS, amazing quality.

        Double exposure…

          I only use the screen when i take selfies with me and my girlfriend.

          Everything else… I use the viewfinder.

          I noticed that the IBIS iscreally nice and it helped me in a few situatioms already.

          A really lovely camera… Looking forward to taking it out more often!

    Hello, very interesting to read, nice pictures and well written. I have an XT10, XT20 and XT3 …all work well ( although my XT20 had to have its motherboard replaced) and I love them all. Why don’t you use your trusty XT20 in manual mode with focus peaking for landscape shots instead of putting it on the shelf ? Oh by the way if you liked Tenerife you could consider her neighbor Lanzarote for another trip …you will be be blown away.

      Hi Alex and thank you very much for your comment!

      I am glad you enjoyed the pictures and the article!

      My ex XT3 had its motherboard replaced and i sold it after but i never had issues with my Xt20 before:(

      Yes, that is exactly what i will do, use it in manual for landscape and night photos… It is still a superb camera.

      Lanzarote has been on my list for ages but this year we picked Tenerife because we secured a direct flight.

      However, next year we plan to go to Lanzarote since I have maps, itineraries, places I want to shoot, etc:)

      Thank you again for your message!

          Thank you so much Johan!
          As soon as I book a ticket I will start asking you questions:)

          Many thanks!
