In our review, we said:

“This camera is perfect for those who perhaps want to do some macro photography, some everyday journaling, street photography, food photography, and even more advanced genres like astrophotography thanks to the tremendous live composition mode. The image quality is excellent, the touch interface will make those who used to smartphones feel right at home, and the battery has enough about it to last a day or more of casual shooting. It’s a great little camera that packs a punch.”

Fujifilm XS10

In our review, we said:

“This camera is for photographers who were put off with Fujifilm’s usual vintage-style controls and dials. The Fujifilm XS10 is an entry-level camera with more bells and whistles than the competition. The XS10 is certainly a compelling option because of the great image quality, fantastic handling, and price.”

In our review, we said:

“We were able to pull out a lot of details from the original raw file by adjusting the highlights and shadows and making minimal adjustments to exposure, contrast, levels, and curves. As you can see, the EM5 Mark III’s raw files contain a ton of information for you to work with during post.”
