The sensor architecture has been modified to include copper wiring structure, which results in decreased noise and higher image quality over the ISO 200-12800 range, as well as improved focusing performance when utilizing the hybrid autofocus system.

Additionally, the X-A7 has a retro-styled mint green casing and a huge 3.5″ 2.76m-dot touchscreen LCD with a 16:9 aspect ratio, which complements the photography capabilities. In addition, the screen boasts a free-angle design, which allows for easy viewing from high and low angles, as well as front-facing angles for precisely framed selfies, without compromising visibility. Wireless image sharing and remote camera operation from associated mobile devices are also possible thanks to the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

APS-C CMOS sensor with 24.2MP resolution and hybrid autofocus

When shooting in a range of lighting circumstances, the 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor produces high-quality stills and video in high definition. In addition to having a native sensitivity range of ISO 200-12800, it also has an expandable range of ISO 100-51200 to better suit working in extremely bright or extremely dark conditions.

UHD 4K video may be recorded at a resolution of up to 29.97p, while Full HD video can be recorded at a resolution of up to 59.94p. When working with moving subjects, it is feasible to shoot stills at a continuous rate of 6 frames per second.

Additionally, the sensor has a hybrid autofocus system with 117 customizable points that employs both phase-detection and contrast-detection technologies to provide rapid and precise AF. The sensor also includes a CMOS sensor for improved image quality. This focusing mechanism also has the capability of detecting both faces and eyes, which helps to ensure proper focusing while taking portraits.

Body design with wireless connectivity

The large 3.5″ 2.76m-dot touchscreen LCD allows for straightforward management of the camera’s shooting parameters. The screen also includes a swivel design, which allows you to work from a variety of angles, including high, low, and front-facing. Additionally, the screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio, which makes it more suitable for video recording applications.

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enable you to wirelessly share imagery and remotely operate the camera from a mobile device that is connected to the camera’s network.
The X-A7 is a sleek and attractive smartphone with a retro-inspired design that is complemented by mint green leatherette.

The WP-W126S battery, which is included, has a capacity of roughly 270 shots per charge in normal mode and 440 shots per charge in economy mode, respectively.

It is possible to use the built-in pop-up flash to offer additional illumination while working in low light conditions, and the Super Intelligent Flash technology automatically adjusts the flash power to match the lighting conditions.

XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ Lens with Optical Image Stabilization

The XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens, which is included with the camera body, is a small 23-69mm equivalent zoom lens that covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide-angle to portrait-length. Using three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements, this lens is capable of producing an image that is well-corrected and free of spherical and chromatic aberrations.

Additionally, a 5.1″ minimum focusing distance is provided for close-up shooting, Power Zoom is provided for rapidly modifying your focal length, and optical image stabilization is provided for handheld shooting with three stops of effectiveness for handheld shooting.
