It is also the first mid-range X Series camera to use a motion sensor retention mechanism, which is a mechanical shock absorber that guards against slight vibrations that may come from the shutter unit, adding another level of stability to ensure that image clarity and resolution are maintained. It has a new cooling construction for a longer recording time.
・To further assist with hand-held stability, the X-S10 features a large, ergonomic magnesium-alloy grip, making it easier to keep the camera stable when larger lenses are mounted. The design also features a magnesium-alloy front and top-plate to keep the body rigid and robust.
