Fujifilm shipping entry-level X-A1 mirrorless camera later this month
Fujifilm has launched another mirrorless camera in its retro-styled X-series, just three months after launching <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294056==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/25/retains.old.camera.styling.introduces.tilting.scre en.wi.fi/" rel='nofollow'>the X-M1</a>. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294057==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/06/accompanying.launch.press.release.suggests.officia l.announcement.imminent/" rel='nofollow'>previously-leaked</a> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294058==http://www.fujifilmusa.com/products/digital_cameras/x/fujifilm_x_a1/" rel='nofollow'>Fujifilm X-A1</a> 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. <br />
<br />
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. <br />
<br />
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. <br />
<br />
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.
