LCD and Viewfinder
Fujifilm XF10 has a Fixed Type 3″ LCD screen with a resolution of 1,040k dots. Both the screen size and the screen resolution is up to the standards of this class.
LCD is Touch screen
type, so you can change the settings and set the focus point with your fingertips.
XF10 doesn't have a viewfinder and no option for external viewfinder. Lack of a viewfinder can be problematic especially under strong light where visibility of LCD screens goes down dramatically. If you need a Large sensor compact camera with a built-in viewfinder in a similar price range, consider Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 (Lumix DMC-TZ100) (Compare) or Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 (Compare). If the price is not an issue, take a look at our Top Rated Cameras with Viewfinders.

Fujifilm XF10 can shoot continuously at max speed of 6.0 fps and has max shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. XF10 also has an electronic shutter which can shoot silently at max speed of 1/16000 sec. One thing to keep in mind is that electronic shutter may cause rolling shutter effects on your images in certain conditions.
Unfortunately XF10 doesn't have an external flash shoe so you are limited with the built-in flash.
