Canon T7i Advantages:

  • 8 More Megapixels – Enough to make a difference when cropping a lot or printing big. For mostly sharing images online, you won’t notice a difference.
  • Built-in Video Stabilization – Electronic stabilization that can be enabled for videos only. Big plus for recording with IS-less lenses
  • AF System – The T7i may have 4 less AF points, but all 45 of those are phase-detection and cross-type. Phase is faster than contrast based, and therefor ethe T7i is better for moving subjects. You can of course take pictures of action with the X-T10, it’s just that the DSLR technology is better suited for this
  • LCD Screen – It’s fully articulated compared to only tilting on the X-T10. The resolution is slightly higher, and the T7i suppors touchscreen.
  • Buffer – Unlimited JPEG buffer compared to 62, and nearly identical for RAW. Honestly, 62 is already more than what most will need, but it’s still an advantage
  • Buffer – In JPEG, the unlimited buffer compared to 10 is a big advantage if you plan on shooting sports. For RAW too, 27 vs 7
  • Flash Sync Speed – 1/200 vs /180
  • Startup Time – Not measured yet, but based on its predecessor, the T7i should turn on almost a second quicker than the X-T10
  • Connectivity – The T7i also has built-in NFC and Bluetooth support
  • Battery Life – Almost twice as long battery life. These are studio CIPA tests with 50% flash usage so expect both to be higher, but with the same capacitiy difference
  • Less Expensive – The T7i body is around $50 cheaper

The T7i is bigger, but in return you get more megapixels, an AF system better for action, an articulating touchscreen LCD, bigger buffer and a longer battery life. Definitely worth the money.

Fujifilm X-T10 Advantages:

  • 8 vs 6fps -2fps is enough to make a difference for extreme sports, but don’t forget the smaller buffer
  • Focus Peaking – Every mirrorless camera offers focus peaking. If you’re focusing with a manual lens or have a bad eye sight, the camera highlights what part of your image is in focus. Great for video too!
  • Viewfinder – Its coverage is 100% and what you see in the viewfinder is exactly what you get (exposure wise too). The magnification is also a little bit bigger too.
  • Faster Max Shutter Speed – 1/32000 vs 1/4000
  • Size & Weight – The camera is a lot smaller and lighter

You should get the X-T10 if you need something compact and light. While it can also be used for sports and wildlife, it’s a perfect camera for slower paced photography.
