Fujifilm X-A3

Fujifilm X-A3

The silver X-A3 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens from Fujifilm will be a lot of fun for photographers, thanks to its vintage appearance and selfie-first design. X-A3 has a newly designed 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor that can capture clear, detailed photos at sensitivities up to ISO 25600 and continuous shooting speeds of up to 6 frames per second, making it an excellent choice for travel photography.

Another option has been added, which allows for shutter speeds of up to an astounding 1/32000 second when using an electronic shutter. In addition to still images, the X-A3 can record Full HD video at up to 60 frames per second. Additional features include a touchscreen LCD that can be tilted up to 180 degrees and a slide-and-tilt mechanism that ensures 100 percent visibility when shooting, which helps to make the X-A3 a selfie-ready tool. Touch AF, Touch Shoot, and other controls are available on the touchscreen, which gives additional functionality.

Among the camera’s many new features is a revamped body with aluminum accents such as the top cover, front plate, and top dials, as well as a fake leather grip that is quite comfortable to use. Apart from that, it contains a number of new features to make shooting easier, such as a Self-Timer with Smile Detection, Buddy Timer, and Group Timer settings, among others. There is even an Eye Detection setting to guarantee that your selfies are as good as possible.

The X-A3 is equipped with a 77-point contrast-detect autofocus system, which helps to assure excellent performance. The inclusion of built-in Wi-Fi further improves usage by allowing for direct connectivity with smartphones and instax SHARE printers. In addition, it pays homage to Fujifilm’s rich heritage by including Film Simulations and Advanced Filters in its arsenal of tools.The XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II lens, which has a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range, is included with the X-A3. It provides wide-angle to portrait-length views with its 24-76mm equivalent focal length range.

An optical image stabilization system compensates for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake, resulting in sharper, clearer images even in low-light conditions. Three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element reduce aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range, and a 3-stop aspherical element reduces distortions.

Sensor with 24.2 Megapixels (APS-C)

A big APS-C-sized 24.2MP CMOS sensor is capable of producing high-resolution still images and video with exceptional low-light quality and sensitivity up to ISO 25600, making it an excellent choice for professional photographers.

All aspects of the camera’s performance are quick: the start-up time is 0.5 seconds, the AF speed is 0.3 seconds, the shutter delay is 0.05 seconds, and the shooting interval duration is 0.44 seconds. Additionally, the sensor is capable of generating Full HD 1080p films at a frame rate of 60 frames per second. Focus peaking can also be used during video recording, if the user wishes.

Design of the Body

The slim and stylish design is suitable for everyday use, and the straightforward control arrangement, which includes top-mounted control knobs as well as a dedicated Q Menu shortcut button, allows you to reach some of the most frequently used camera and exposure settings in seconds.

A 3.0″ touchscreen LCD with 180-degree tilting capability is also included into the body design, which is perfect for vivid monitoring and picture playback, as well as taking front-facing selfies. Face and eye detection are also provided to guarantee that the most important subjects are exposed properly and that the most significant images are capture.

All of the hardware controls on the rear of the camera are located on the right side of the device, which makes it easier to use with one hand when shooting video. Additionally, a dedicated button is provided for activating the self-timer functionality.

77-Point Contrast-Detection Automatic Focus System

X-focusing A3’s technology, which has 77 points of contrast and a range of scene-specific settings, helps it capture clean and sharp shots with little blurriness. As well as Touch AF and Touch Shoot, there are other additional touchscreen-enabled options to try out.

Other options include Smile Detection, Buddy Timer, and Group Timer modes, all of which can assist you in capturing the ideal shot. Additionally, when the LCD is turned upwards, the Eye Detection AF feature is immediately activated. A new single-point mode with 49 regions for more precise autofocusing has been added to this model as an enhancement.

Wi-Fi connectivity is pre-installed.

Incorporated Wi-Fi connectivity allows for quick wireless transmission of photographs to associated mobile devices, which may then be shared immediately online. Mobile devices may also be used to geotag photographs taken with the X-A3 by embedding location data into the images captured with the camera.

Modes for Film Simulation

The X-A3 is also compatible with the optional instax SHARE Printer when used in conjunction with its dedicated software, allowing you to print your favorite photographs on the go while on the roa
In order to take use of Fujifilm’s extensive experience in conventional film-based photography, the X-A3 has various Film Simulation modes that are designed to replicate the appearance and feel of some of Fujifilm’s iconic reversal film types, including:

  • Natural-looking tones are provided by Provia for everyday shooting,
  • whilst Velvia delivers a more dramatic and rich tonality with richer color saturation,
  • Astia provides less contrast for a gentler portrayal of skin tones, according to the manufacturer.

It is also possible to utilize the Classic Chrome mode to produce a vintage appearance that is distinguished by subdued tones and rich color reproduction. PRO Neg. Hi and PRO Neg. Standard are now also available, allowing you to choose from an even wider range of film stocks. Additionally, the Black & White and Sepia modes are offered for those who want a more traditional, monochromatic aesthetic.
