UPDATE 25/09: New rumors have been leaked by Fuji Rumors regarding the upcoming Fujifilm X-S10 – and it looks like this new Fujifilm camera could be a departure from some of Fujifilm's current mid-range APS-C line-up. Rather than having a rangefinder body like the Fujifilm X-E3, Fujifilm X100V or Fujifilm X-Pro3, the new Fujifilm X-S10 is rumored to have an SLR-styled body.

ORIGINAL STORY:

There have been plenty of whispers about a new Fujifilm camera coming soon – and it appears that there is indeed fire behind all of the smoke. Apparently, we could be seeing a new camera called the Fujifilm X-S10 as soon as 15 October, according to rumor website Fuji Rumors. 

The name would at first to appear to connote some kind of relation to the Fujifilm X-S1, a bridge camera with a 12MP sensor. However, apparently there's no relation between these two cameras. Instead, the Fujifilm X-S10 will be a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sensor.

Apparently, the upcoming Fujifilm X-S10 will be a mid-range camera set alongside the Fujifilm X-T30 and the Fujifilm X-E3, avoiding the higher-end price of the Fujifilm X-T4. However, one of the most interesting aspects of this upcoming Fujifilm camera is that it'll be borrowing in-body image stabilization technology from Fujifilm's high-end cameras, such as the X-T4 and the Fujifilm X-H1

As reported by Fuji Rumors, this will be the first mid-range Fujifilm camera to use IBIS technology, which will definitely be a big draw for Fujifilm users looking to upgrade or other brand users wanting to make the switch. 

Any other information on the Fujifilm X-S10 is pretty scarce at the moment, but it's very possible that we'll see more details leaking as 15 October draws closer.
