Fujifilm has unveiled a new camera featuring a retro design – the FUJIFILM X-A5. It offers features that include a 180-degree tilting rear LCD screen and the latest built-in Bluetooth technology.
The company claims that the X-A5 comes with a newly developed sensor and colour reproduction technology. It combines a 24MP APS-C sensor with the image processing engine to achieve notable photo quality. The camera's regular range of ISO sensitivity has been extended to ISO12800.
The X-A5 is the first X-A Series model to feature phase detection pixels, originally developed for the X series' high-end models. The Intelligent Hybrid AF speed claims to be twice as fast as previous models, ensuring that you capture those photographic moments more swiftly.
The X-A5 debuts the new FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ, the first electric-powered zoom lens for the X Mount. This lightweight and compact zoom promises to make the photographic experience easier and more comfortable. The lens has the minimum working distance of just 20cm and claims to have electric-powered zooming mechanism that starts from the wide-angle 23mm end (on a 35mm format) for both still images and video.
The X-A5 is equipped with a large rear LCD monitor that can rotate 180 degrees. When the panel is rotated 180 degrees, the Rear Command Dial automatically switches to the Zoom and Shutter Release function. The 180-degree rotation of the rear LCD monitor also activates the Eye AF function that promises to automatically create high-quality self-portraits with sharp focus on the subject's eyes.
The camera also features 17 variations of Advanced Filters including the new “Fog Remove” and “HDR Art.” The rear LCD monitor uses the new touch-panel GUI, facilitating touch-panel operation using fingertips to check the effect of Advanced Filters and Film Simulations for added usability.
The Exposure Compensation Dial now has the range expanded from ±3EV to ±5EV. The Bluetooth Low Energy technology claims to be incorporated for quick, easy and automatic transfer of still images and videos to paired smartphones and tablet devices, using the free smart-device app “FUJIFILM Camera Remote”. The camera is also compatible with FUJIFILM Instax SHARE SP-3 printer for printing images instantly.
The X-A5 promises to offer a high-speed HD video function, allowing users to record HD video up to quad speed for slow-motion clips. The multi-focus mode automatically synthesises 4K quality images with changing the depth of field setting.
The 4K Burst function offers to shoot 15 frames per second in 4K image quality. With the X-A5, users can shoot as many as 450 photos per single battery charge.
The Fujifilm X-A5 is priced at Rs 49,999 with lens (XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ) and features in Brown, Pink and Black colour variants....
