Over the last four years, Fujifilm X Series cameras have consistently triumphed at the EISA Awards, with the following products receiving accolades:

    • 2011 FUJIFILM X100
    • 2012 FUJIFILM X-Pro1

FUJIFILM X-T10 – European Consumer Compact System Camera 2015-2016 A statement from the judges said:

"The Fujifilm X‐T10 includes the best bits of last year's award‐winning X‐T1 in a smaller body and at a lower price. It has top‐plate drive mode, shutter speed and exposure compensation dials, and most lenses feature aperture rings. The 16‐million‐pixel X‐Trans CMOS II sensor offers excellent image quality, with particularly attractive JPEG colour reproduction. A newly‐developed autofocus system is now capable of tracking moving subjects, wherever they are in the frame. This is all wrapped up in a compact, lightweight SLR‐style body with an excellent 2.36 million-dot electronic viewfinder, built‐in flash, and Wi‐Fi for sharing images. It's a great, lighter‐weight alternative to a DSLR."

A statement from the judges said:

"The XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is a near-perfect general purpose lens, with image quality that can normally only be achieved by using primes. It's exceptionally sharp at all focal lengths and apertures, with extremely low distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetting.
Autofocus is very fast, almost completely silent, and consistently accurate. The XF16-55mm is a large and heavy lens, with weather resistant build quality matching that of the solidly built Fujifilm X-T1. The only missing feature is the omission of optical stabilisation, but the exceptional image quality is a worthy trade-off."

FUJIFILM Australia Product and Marketing Manager - Electronic Imaging, Alex Zitser, said these latest EISA awards have forged a strong and consistent reputation for Fujifilm’s X Series camera and lens range.

"Fujifilm will continue to strive to develop excellent products that meet the needs of photographers with exceptional quality, superior innovation and sophisticated technology always at the forefront," Mr Zitser said.
