Intuitively designed for selfie enthusiasts, the Fujifilm X-A10 is a slim mirrorless camera with great photography capabilities and a striking throwback design that stands out. The X-A10 is equipped with a 16.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor that can capture both high-resolution stills and Full HD video.
The sensor’s design provides correct color balance and realistic skin tone reproduction, which can be further enhanced with the Portrait Enhancer Mode. Aside from its image capabilities, the camera’s physical design allows users to take self-portraits with the help of a 180° slide-and-tilt back LCD panel.
The monitor’s sliding design guarantees that the screen is not obscured by the camera while it is facing forward, and when it is fully extended to 180°, Eye Detection AF is also triggered for sharp focus when the screen is fully extended. The vertical control dial may also be utilized as a shutter release button while holding the camera for selfies, allowing for more comfortable and steady shooting while holding the camera.
Sensor with 16.3 Megapixels (APS-C)
A huge APS-C-sized 16.3MP CMOS sensor is capable of producing high-resolution still images as well as Full HD video with exceptional low-light quality and sensitivity in low light conditions. As a bonus, the sensor generates exceptionally realistic colors and skin tones, which may be accentuated in-camera with the Portrait Enhancer mode, resulting in skin tones that are both clear and attractive to the eye.
The back LCD panel has a 180-degree slide-and-tilt design, which is useful for snapping front-facing selfies while on the go. When the screen is completely expanded to 180°, the sliding design of the screen allows the screen to move such that it is not obscured by the camera itself.
When taking a self-portrait, the vertical command dial, which will be positioned beneath your fingertip when pointing the camera at yourself, may be used to release the shutter, which will help to eliminate camera wobble. Additionally, when the screen is positioned at a 180-degree angle, the Eye Detection AF feature will be automatically triggered.
In addition to providing quick and straightforward access to typical exposure adjustments, dedicated buttons may be assigned to additional commonly used features such as white balance, self-timer, and continuous shooting settings, allowing for quick access to these operations.
Lens: Canon XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II
The camera body is accompanied by the flexible XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II lens, which is a conventional zoom with a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range that can be used in a variety of shooting conditions. Construction is an entire glass with 12 elements organized in 10 groups. Three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element are used to reduce chromatic aberrations across the zoom range, resulting in improved clarity, sharpness, and color fidelity.
As an added bonus, this lens incorporates an optical image stabilization technology that is effective at 3.5 stops, which compensates for the effects of camera shake and allows for clearer images to be captured in low-light situations. In addition, the lens has seven rounded aperture blades, which provide a smooth out-of-focus quality when utilizing selective focus and shallow depth of field methods, among other things.
