Fujifilm has announced the X-A7, an entry-level mirrorless camera with some key improvements over its X-A5 predecessor. A new 24MP sensor offers 8.5 times more phase detection autofocus points than the previous model, and includes 4K/30p video recording – a welcome upgrade over the X-A5’s 4K/15p. Burst shooting remains at 6 fps.
The X-A7 offers a fully articulated, ultra-high-res 3.5″ touch screen LCD, which is the primary means of interacting with camera controls, as the camera offers only a few physical controls on the back panel. The camera with kit lens attached weighs just 455g (1lb) altogether.
Other new offerings include an update to Fujifilm’s auto scene recognition mode called Bright Mode, which utilizes HDR and other camera settings to create brighter, more vivid images with little user input.
The Fujifilm X-A7 will be available October 24th kitted with a Fujinon XC 15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens for $700. Shaking things up a bit, Fujifilm will offer the camera body in dark silver, ‘camel’, mint green and silver color options. A ‘navy’ color will also be available in some regions.
