The latest Fujifilm X-A5 advances the X series of the camera. Its predecessor was the X-A3. The camera features on-chip phase detection, along with autofocus that is twice as fast as the X-A3 owing to the Intelligent Hybrid AF system. Besides this, the native ISO on the X-A5 has also been upgraded to 12,800 from 6,400.

The X-A5 sports an APS-C Bayer (instead of company’s X-Trans) image sensor of 24.2MP, it also supports 4K video recording. We get to see features like automatic Bluetooth image transfer and phase-detection autofocus. The LCD screen on the camera tilts a full 180 degree, and the company has also brought a new image processing engine on board. The X-A5 also offers a processing speed 1.5 times faster than its predecessors. Owing to the new X-series lens, the camera is also able to boast of a smooth zooming mechanism that goes from a wide-angle 23mm to 67.5mm.

Talking about the monitor screen on the Fujifilm X-A5, there is a 3-inch LCD on the rear side which tilts full 180 degrees. The screen also supports automatic activation of the Eye AF function which enables the camera to capture high-quality selfies. In the camera, the users will also be able to select from three levels of skin tone enhancement in the Portrait Enhancer Mode.

The camera also doesn’t fall short on video shooting as it comes with a 4K Burst function that allows it to shoot 15 frames per second in 4K image quality. The X-A5 will enable users to record HD video up to quad speed for slow-motion clips using the High-Speed HD Video function, as per the company’s claims.

For sharing options, the Fujifilm X-A5 features the Bluetooth Low Energy technology which will facilitate the automatic and easy transfer of images using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app. As for the battery life, Fujifilm claims that the X-A5 will be able to shoot up to 450 photos on a single full charge.

Basically mirrorless cameras are in development phase. They are small but they are costly and their lenses and other equipments are again costly too.

You can say that mirrorless cameras better in terms of portability, faster autofocus and speed. But, when you compare to DSLR, it is still far far behind.

I have used both, Nikon D7200 and Sony A6300. Both are great, but I would prefer D7200 over A6300.

I’ve read that mirrorless are better than DSLRs. This one looks good though. And it’s cheap for 50k.

The biggest problem with Fujifilm is that they dont have many service centres in India.
Otherwise, they are really an underrated company similar to Pentax.
