If you through that the X-M1 was the beast deal offered by the company, you may want to think again as Fujifilm has now unleashed its X-A1, an even cheaper mirrorless camera with an interchangeable lens system. The device comes with alluring features such as a 16.3MP APS-C sensor and EXR Processor II to deliver high image quality on a budget.
The Fujifilm X-A1 will be accompanied by the Fujinon XC16-50mm F3.5-5.6 lens which is said to be ideal for snapping up images in across various scenes such as low-light, portraits and landscapes. The lens features an expanded zoom range and even OIS for reduced blurs when capturing subjects at a distance or in dimly-lit conditions. Design-wise, the camera weighs 330 grams and it measures 116.9mm x 66.5mm x 39mm in dimensions. The X-A1 sports a 3-inch TFT color LCD display on the back which can be tilted to different vertical angels. Most buttons and dials required for adjusting settings and modes are allocated to the right side for convenient access.
For adding a personal touch to your images, the camera is loaded with various filters such as Toy Camera, Miniature, Dynamic Tone, Pop Color, Soft Focus, High Key, Low Key and Partial Color. It also supports 1080p FHD video capture at 30fps. With the included Li-ion battery, you can expect around 350 images on a single charge. The company notes that the X-A1 has built-in Wi-Fi which can be used to transfer files to an iOS or Android device via the dedicated Fujifilm Camera app. It’s even compatible with all X-Series interchangeable lenses.
The Fujifilm X-A1 is priced at $599.95 and is expected to go on sale this month.
