Screen and viewfinder

Fujifilm X-T10 rear screen

The Fujifilm X-T10’s electronic viewfinder is smaller than the X-T1’s, but the LCD is the same.

The X-T10’s centrally placed electronic viewfinder is the same 2.36-million-dot OLED unit previously seen on the X-E2, with 0.62x magnification and 100% coverage. It’s a really nice finder, being bright, clear and colour accurate, and it matches the optical finders on most APS-C DSLRs for size. However, the window is unusually small, so you need to align your eye with it perfectly to see properly into the corners of the screen. The information display shows extensive exposure information, including an electronic level and live histogram, and usefully it all rotates when shooting in portrait format. An eye sensor allows automatic switching with the rear screen.

The screen itself is a 3in, 920,000-dot LCD that tilts upwards by 90° for waist-level shooting, and downwards by 45° for high-angle shots. However like all tilt-only screens, it becomes much less useful when shooting in portrait format. It’s not touch-sensitive, so it can’t be used for focus-point selection. Like the viewfinder, it’s great to use when shooting and gives a clear view of the subject.
