Fujifilm X-A2

Thu January 15, 2015

Fujifilm X-A2

Fujifilm X-A2

Category: Beginner, Serious

Type: Compact Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera


Selfie-ready compact system camera. The Fujifilm X-A2 is a compact mirrorless that accepts interchangeable lenses, sports a large 16MP APS-C image sensor, takes RAW, and puts total control of the camera right in your hands with automatic as well as semi-auto and full manual PASM shooting modes.

Looks like a pretty serious camera? It is, but who says serious photographers can’t have fun? Indeed, the Fujifilm X-A2 has a large 3.0-in. LCD (920K-dot) that flips up 175° to face forward so you can view yourself and friends while taking a selfie. When you flip the LCD that way, the camera assumes you are taking a selfie and automatically switches on Eye Detection Auto Focus to focus on the eye (you can let the camera decide which eye to focus on or select Left or Right). For best results, you would want to attach a wide-angle lens for wide coverage, e.g. the FUJINON LENS XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II [24-76mm] 3x optical zoom kit lens.

The Fujifilm X-A2 features built-in Wi-Fi for wireless transfer of images from camera to PC (PC AutoSave), to your smart phone or tablet using the FUJIFILM Camera App, and to the instax SHARE SP-1 Smartphone Printer for instant prints.

Fujifilm’s popular Film Simulation now includes CLASSIC CHROME. Advanced Filters let the photographer with the artistic mind create something unique.

Beginners will appreciate Advanced SR AUTO shooting mode that automatically recognizes 58 scene types, and then selects the most appropriate shutter speed, aperture and other settings. Or, manually select the scene mode yourself. Advanced photographers can switch to one of the PASM modes.

A built-in flash automatically adjusts its output depending on the scene, e.g. clearly and brightly captures faces under strong backlit or dark conditions, and prevents the washout of the subject and background when shooting macro shots. When even more light is required, you can attach a separately sold TTL flash into the hot shoe.

The Fujifilm X-A2 will appeal to beginners who want to take high quality selfie images with a camera that allows them to grow into serious photography.
