Entry-level Fujifilm X-A10 mirrorless compact system camera becomes official.
The new camera comes with an APS-sized 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, X lens mount and a 180-degree slide-and-tilt type LCD for selfie shootups.
The X-A10 can record both high-resolution photos and Full HD video. The sensor’s design ensures true color balance and natural skin tone reproduction, which can further be optimized using the Portrait Enhancer Mode.
The Fujifilm X-A10 with XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II kit will be available from January 2017 with a price of $499.
Fujifilm X-A10 Mirrorless Camera Officially Announced
The camera’s grip is shaped to accommodate both normal shooting and self-portraits. When taking a selfie, you can focus and release the shutter by pressing the vertical command dial found directly below your index finger. This also reduces the camera shake. Rotating the tilting LCD upward by 180 degrees activates the Eye Detection AF to automatically adjust the focus on the subject’s eyes.
The slide-and-tilt mechanism enables the screen to be fully visible even when it is tilted by 180°. The use of two Command Dials means you only need a thumb to quickly adjust aperture, shutter speed and exposure settings.
