Fujifilm has announced the X-A10 entry-level mirrorless camera for first-time users. The camera will be available from January 2017 with the XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II kit lens for £499 (approximately Rs. 34,000). The pricing seems very attractive for a mirrorless camera, which hopefully stays competitive by the time it makes its way to India. The new addition to the X-series feature a 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor in the similar retro design as the other models in the series.
- There’s a native ISO range of 200-6400, 49-zone autofocus to help keep your pictures crystal clear and six film simulation modes that provide welcome effects to your images.
- But you’re not limited to shooting just landscapes, objects and portraits, oh no. The X-A10 comes with Fuji’s 180-degree slide and tilt screen, that turns it into a super selfie snapper.
- The slide mechanism lets you move the screen out a bit so none of it is blocked by the camera and Fujifilm has fitted a shutter that sits naturally under your index finger to minimise camera shake.
- When you do rotate the screen by 180-degrees, the camera automatically enables its Eye Detection autofocus function that tracks your eyes to ensure your photos are pin-sharp.
- The X-A10 has received some other features from Fuji’s selfie-focused cameras, such as a longlife battery, good for a claimed 410 frames and a minimum working distance of 7cm from the front edge of the lens for close up macro photography.
- The X-A10 has other built-in features such as a “super intelligent flash” which can control light output depending on the shooting conditions, full HD recording, panorama and time lapse shooting modes and Wi-Fi for connecting a smartphone. And of course, everything is housed within a body that is distinctly Fuji. You only need to take one look to appreciate the sweet, retro looks.
