Fujifilm X-A3 camera officially announced with new sensor

The entry-level Fujifilm X-A3 camera officially announced. The mirrorless camera incorporates a newly developed 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor. Unlike other X-series cameras, its 24MP sensor uses a traditional Bayer color filter, rather than X-Trans.

It can create sharp, detailed images at sensitivities up to ISO 25600 and continuous shooting speeds of up to 6 fps. The standard ISO range is 200-6400.

The camera has a 3” touchscreen LCD that flips upward by 180 degrees, and selfies can be taken using the command dial on the back of the camera. The touchscreen also provides added functionality with Touch AF, Touch Shoot, and other controls.
