The entry level Fujifilm X-A series sees a refreshing redesign, and revamp with the new X-A7. Targeted at vloggers, content creators and entry level photographers/videographers it looks to be a popular one.
Key Performance Upgrades
In built is a new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS image sensor with premium image quality and advanced AF performance. The sensor features 8.5x more phase detection pixels across its surface than previous sensors. The image sensor produces 4K (3820×2150) footage using data equal to 6K (6032×3392), generating high resolution video with up to 30fps, little noise and no crop. Movies can be created in full HD or HD mode at up to 60p in full-screen 16:9 aspect ratio or the popular 1:1 square format for easy live-story posting on social media.
The X-A7 is somewhat remnant of the X-E series cameras with a brand new redesign. The Fujifilm X-A7 features a new grip and a large 3.5” 16:9 wide LCD touchscreen which flips out. This enables the ability to easily shoot unique angles or yourself. Another feature that has been added which would benefit vloggers is the ability to plug in a microphone via the 2.5mm mic port. An adapter will be required to fit external microphones as most of them use a 3.5mm connection.
