For those who enjoy Fujifilm’s product line, a new device is on its way. The brand new, super fast, weather-proof X-A3 is going to be released with a 23mm lens. The camera company just announced the update to their X-A series of mirrorless cameras along with a solid new lens.
The biggest update to the X-A3 is the sensor. The camera has a new 24.2 megapixel model, which is a large step up from the last 16 megapixel sensor on the A2. While the megapixel count is similar to the ones found on higher end models, it is not the same sensor or image processor that cameras like the X-Pro2 and X-T2 have. The camera uses a regular Bayer-type layout instead of Fujifilm’s proprietary X-Trans. The mirrorless camera does, however, have expanded focus modes and a few million more pixels than any of its predecessors.
To a photographers delight, the X-A2 will now shoot at 60p, 50p, and 24p in addition to the standard 30p. Unfortunately, it will not support 4K and will be limited to 1080/720 vertical pixels. This camera is at the lower end of the interchangeable lens pile, meaning it is aimed at a more casual shooting crowd. For people who may enjoy taking selfies, the rear LCD flips up, and the camera begins hunting for eyes to focus on. You can also program it so you hit the shutter button but the shot only fires when you and your friends all get near each other and smile. The features are modern and convenient.
The Fujifilm X-A3 can be purchased for $600 with the standard 16-60mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens. Fuji has also announced a single lens that will sell for $450. That lens will be a 23mm F/2 prime lens that, unlike similar options on the market, is actually weather-proof. Of course, having a weather sealed lens is only useful if the body itself is also weather-proof: hence, the need for a X-T series camera.
