“The lightweight Fujifilm X-A1 and versatile XC16-50mm lens combination gives consumers extraordinary value, and the opportunity to experience the outstanding image quality that the X-Series is known for,” said Manny Almeida, Senior Vice President and General Manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “Together with a high-definition tilting screen and wireless image transfer, consumers of all skill levels can capture truly memorable images that can also be shared on Facebook and Twitter quickly and easily.” http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1003763-REG/fujifilm_16395586_x_a1_mirrorless_digital_camera.html
Large 16.3 Megapixel APS-C Sensor and EXR Processor II
The FUJIFILM X-A1 uses an APS-C sensor and powerful EXR Processor II that captures rich tones, breathtaking dynamic range and stunning low-light images using its extended ISO range of up to 25600. With the X-A1, users can set the sensor sensitivity from ISO200 to as high as ISO6400 in 1/3 step increments, to obtain remarkably clear images even when shooting indoors and at night.
Together with the EXR Processor II, the X-A1 also gives customers fantastic speed with a start-up time of 0.5 seconds, a shutter time lag of 0.05 seconds, and a maximum burst speed of 5.6 frames per second (max. 30 frames).
Compact Performance and Advanced Features
The X-A1 CSC combines advanced features in a go-anywhere design. The X-A1 weighs just 11.6 oz, and is about a third of the size of a traditional DSLR body. With a slim profile of 1.3” at its trimmest point, the X-A1 is easily carried anywhere.
The camera also features a 3” tilting high-resolution LCD screen with 920,000 dots for easy image viewing and framing at various angles. The 3” LCD monitor tilts at variable vertical angles, facilitating both low-angle and high-angle shots, whether on or off a tripod.
The X-A1 uses a built-in high-precision flash, with the guide number 7, and Super Intelligent Flash technology, which uses scene recognition and automatically controls flash strength to reduce highlight clipping.
Easy Image Transfer with WiFi Button
The X-A1 includes a WiFi button that lets users transfer high-quality photos and movies to social media sites for easy sharing from the camera to smartphones, tablets and computers.
To connect the X-A1 to a smartphone or tablet, users can download the free dedicated “FUJIFILM Camera Application” to their iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone or tablet device, to transfer up to 30 pictures at a time from the X-A1. The app also lets users download movies, expanding the range of options available for enjoying pictures taken with the camera.
Intuitive design and easy operation. The X-A1 has its key operation buttons and dials positioned on the right side of the camera’s rear panel for easy use and quick picture taking. The Mode Dial for selecting the optimum setting for each scene gives access to the Advanced SR Auto function, which automatically recognizes each scene and selects the best settings for sharp and clear images.
The Advanced Filter function and Film Simulation modes give users a range of creative filters and film effects to apply and achieve unique and artistic looks.
