Fujifilm has announced beginning-level X-A7 with some new key features. It is an efficient upgrade over its predecessor, the X-A5. The new X-A7 offers Fujifilm’s latest 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has 8.5 times as many phase-detect pixels as its previous entry-level model, the X-A5. You can get much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection with burst shooting speeds at 6 fps. The X-A7 can now handle 4K Videos at 30 fps instead of being staggered at 15fps as its previous model. Fujifilm has indicated that it has the less rolling shutter and 1080p shooting speeds are limited to 60 fps. The ISO range runs from 100-12,800, but it can be expanded to ISO 25,600.
New X-A7 has a small, attractive rangefinder body with a weight of just 455 grams including a lens attached, and it is easy to pack around. The X-A5 had a pop-up screen for selfies, but the X-A7 has a fully-articulating touch display. It makes X-A7 more appealing and useful not just for selfies but other types of shooting as well. The screen is also the primary way to adjust settings for the camera. The rear of the camera doesn’t have many physical controls. You can change screen brightness, film simulation, and other effects using touching, tapping or swiping.
Fujifilm’s other features including Bright Mode is a scene recognition tech. It applies HDR and other tricks to create bright, vivid images without the need for any cheating. This is the kind of automatic mode that smartphone shooters are used to, so Fujifilm clearly announced this would be an important feature for novices who might buy a beginning camera. You can buy Fujifilm X-A7 at 700 U.S dollars with a Fujinon XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIZ PZ kit lens when it arrives in the United States on 24th October. The X-A7 will come with camel color and mint green color options, along with dark and light silver.
