Fujifilm has launched another mirrorless camera in its retro-styled X-series, just three months after launching the X-M1. The previously-leaked Fujifilm X-A1 is lower in price when compared to earlier releases in the range, and though it loses some of the high-end components, it still manages to retain the styling and many of the features of its more-expensive counterparts.

The 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, while the same resolution as that of the X-M1, loses the X-Trans sensor but keeps the EXR Processor II. With an ISO range of between 100 and 25,600, boot time of half a second, 0.05 seconds of shutter lag, a 5.6fps burst mode, 49-point autofocus, in-camera RAW processing, 8 filters and 5 film simulation modes, and Full HD video recording at 30fps, it still manages to keep up with the X-M1.

On the back is a tiltable 3-inch, 920,000-dot LCD, while its built-in Wi-Fi allows for use of the Fujifilm Camera App and automatic remote saving to computers. A hot shoe, built-in flash, a Q button for access to frequently-used menus, two command dials, and a mode dial are also included.

Shipping with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, the Fujifilm will go on sale for $600, $100 cheaper than the X-M1 for the body alone, and will be coming out later this month in a choice of black and blue color options. The UK will also have the option to buy a red version.
