FujiFilm is bringing back that classic camera look with its XA7 mirrorless camera. Made with a “retro-styled silver-coloured exterior,” the X-A7 is a mirrorless camera that can both take beautiful stills and capture 4K video.
The X-A7 has a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that makes it possible for the camera to get stills and videos in varying light conditions. It records UHD 4K video at 19.97 frames per second. It bumps up the frame count in FHD video to 59.94. You can also capture full-resolution continuous stills at six frames per second.
The sensor also has a hybrid autofocus system that has 117 selectable points. Using its phase and contrast detection methods, the X-A7 also features both Face and Eye Detection for more accurate focusing.
On the back of the camera, you’ll find a 3.5-inch 2.76m-dot touchscreen LCD with a 16:9 aspect ratio—which comes in handy when shooting video. The screen allows you to make use of the shooting settings. And when you’re ready to share your photo, you can use the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to share wirelessly.
You can also use that connectivity for remote control on a linked mobile device. The battery provides up to an approximate 270 shots per charge. Switch it over into economy mode, and you’ll be able to get somewhere around 440 shots. Finally, there’s a built-in pop-up flash that uses Super Intelligent Flash technology to automatically balance out the flash output to best match the scene.
The X-A7 comes with plenty of additional modes that you can use to fine-tune your photography experience. You can use the Film Simulation modes to mimic different types of film. The camera settings can be automatically adjusted using the SR Auto mode. Portrait Enhancer helps you get the best settings for skin tones and scenery.
With Light Trail you can use the camera to capture longer exposures. There are also plenty of Advanced Filter modes to choose from.
The X-A7 may have a retro look and feel, but it’s loaded with plenty of new tech and functionality that will make everyone believe you are a master photographer.
