The FUJIFILM XF10 is your perfect camera for Instagram

Taking pictures is part of the fun in travel but let's be honest — lugging a heavy and complicated DSLR is too much of a hassle. We all want to capture our vacation beautifully and ease, but without the extra baggage. The simple answer to it all? A camera that's lightweight but powerful — like the new FUJIFILM XF10.

While the smartphone camera does suffice in some scenarios, the FUJIFILM XF10 is for anyone who wants to take their photography game a little bit more seriously. The premium compact camera comes with a 24.2 megapixel APS-C sized sensor that is 14 times larger than the sensor in a standard smartphone. This means a better dynamic range, less grain, and improved low light performances. Its high quality FUJINON 18.5mm F2.8 fixed lens, combined with FUJIFILM's proprietary colour reproduction technology brings you a wide-angled frame that produces sharp and high resolution images. Expect quality pictures akin to those of a DSLR, but from a camera that only weighs a mere 280g.

Perfect for Instagram, the camera comes updated with enhanced Bluetooth connectivity to automatically transfer images to your smartphone. The "square mode" function allows you to switch to a 1:1 format with a single flick while its "rich and fine" mode is ideal for food photography. Meeting the demand for advanced movie functions, the FUJIFILM XF10 is versatile enough to include "4K Movie" and "High Speed Video" options to make your vlogging dreams a reality. The former allows you to continuously record 4K videos for up to 30 minutes, while the latter documents your memories in HD and also features slow motion options.

Available in champagne gold and black at all authorised retailers from August 2018.
