Back in September 2019 was its global release, and finally Fujifilm X-A7 mirrorless camera, an entry-level one, has launched in India. It is equipped with a 24.24MP APS-C sensor, a “vari-angle” 3.5 inch LCD monitor and only weighs just 455 grams (with the Fujinon XC 15-45mm lens kit), and the X-A7 is mainly targeted at travel photographers and vloggers.
Packed with some serious feature goodies, it can capture shots in differing circumstances. It has 425 points in the 24.2MP sensor, now that’s about 8.5 times more than its predecessor, the X-A5. The AF tracking of a moving subject, even in low light, is enhanced using copper wiring in the camera. This possibly reduces rolling shutter distortion while shooting fast-moving objects as well.
Fujifilm X-A7 has a simplistic touch-centric UI where you can change the settings without hassle. ISO levels of up to 51,200 are supported by the sensor, helping to capture better shots in low-light scenarios. A new “Light Trails” mode lets users capture trails of light and can check the image in real-time while the camera shoots it.
The video recording of the cam is capable of shooting up to 4K at 30 fps, and up to 60 fps for FullHD or HD resolution shooting. The new “Countdown Mode” will let users take 15/30/60 second videos with a single click. The vari-angle monitor has up to 1000 nits of brightness, can be adjusted to any angle making it legible in most lighting conditions. The touch panel sensitivity is said to be comparable to that of a modern-day smartphone.
Images and videos can be transferred to smartphones with BLE support via the FUJIFILM Camera Remote app. The application can also be used to control the camera remotely. WiFi, wired data communication for direct file transfer from camera to smartphone via a USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable are the other supported features of Fujifilm X-A7.
The cam will be available in 5 colour variants - Camel, Dark Silver, Mint Green, Navy Blue, and Silver, and is priced at $840.
