    Fujifilm X-A5 Announcement

      News

    Fujifilm has presented a successor of the X-A3 model from 2016. The new model is called X-A5 and it's supposed to be a more effective and improved version of A3.

    The camera is equipped with the CMOS APS-C sensor with the resolution of 24Mp. The sensor is  supported by a processor (1.5x more effective than in the previous model) thanks to which we will be able to take photographs within the ISO range of 200-12800, with a possibility of expanding to 100-51200. The maximum speed of photographing is 6f/s.

    The new X-A5 is equipped with the phase-detection autofocus thanks to which focusing is supposed to be faster and make tracking of objects moving through the frame more effective.  

    Huge novelties are the possibilities of recording films in 4K (the maximum length - 5 minutes) and in 4x slow-motion in HD, with the use of High-Speed HD Video.

    When it comes to ergonomy, the camera is almost identical to its predecessor. The body is in the retro style with a slightly accentuated grip. The 3'' touchscreen is folding and its resolution is 1 040 000 points. We can fold it in such a way that during a full folding it is not blocked by the body. With the use of a new battery, we will be able to take 450  photographs.

      Fujifilm GFX 50R is a compact version of GFX 50S and is the cheapest medium-format mirrorless FujiFilm camera, which was presented two years ago. Thanks to a smaller size, traveling with it should become less troublesome. It is also significantly cheaper than its older brother. 
       
      When it comes to the specification of both cameras, at first glance we will not find any differences. Both cameras are equipped with the 51.4MP and have the dimensions of 43.8 × 32.9mm. The heart of both devices is X Processor Pro. We can take photographs with the maximum speed of 3f/s, within the ISO range of 100 - 12800 (extendable to ISO 102400). The cameras record videos in Full HD with the speed of 30f/s and they are equipped with the 114-point autofocus.
       

      1). Fujifilm GFX 50R
       
      The differences between the two FujiFilm cameras concern their constructions and sizes. GFX 50R is significantly smaller, its dimensions are 161 × 97 × 66mm and it weighs 775g. A smaller construction led to a change in the camera's ergonomics - on the upper panel, there are only dedicated shutter speed and exposure control knobs.  At the back, we will not find a 4-direction selector - it has been replaced with gesture handling on the touch screen. There are also four function buttons, two knobs and the AF joystick.
       

      2). Fujifilm GFX 50R
       
      The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder made in  OLED technology, which offers the resolution of 3.69MP at 0.77× zoom. A rotated LCD 3.2" touch screen has the resolution of 2.33MP. We also have two SD card slots in the UHS-II standard and thanks to Bluetooth, our camera will be able to remain in constant connectivity with other devices, ensuring, for instance, the transfer of taken photographs. A fully-charged battery enables taking 400 photographs, the camera is  sealed and compatible with Capture One software.
       

      3). Fujifilm GFX 50R
       
      As we've already mentioned at the beginning of the article, FujiFilm GFX 50R is the cheapest medium-format mirrorless camera on the market. It will appear on sale next month and it will cost $4,499. You can find full specification of new FujiFilm GFX 50R in our database and  also you can pre-order this camera here.

      The mirrorless Fujifilm X-T3 camera in its third version can boast about the 26MP sensor, an improved AF, a more effective processor, an advanced movie mode and improved ergonomics. Will it still set trends? Let's see!
       
      The heart of X-T3 is the fourth-generation sensor called X-Trans CMOS APS-C, which has been specially designed from the basics for this particular model. It has the resolution of 26MP and it is not equipped with a low-pass filter. Still, it is the first Fujifilm camera from the X series which has BSI (back-illuminated structure), thanks to which the camera should work better while taking photographs in higher sensitivity ranges. The ISO range is 160-1280 and it can be extended to ISO 80, 100, 125, 25600 and 51200.
       

      1). Fujifilm X-T3
       
      Unfortunately, unlike in X-H1, the presented camera is not equipped with the in-built image stabilization.
       
      The image processor of X-T3 is X-Processor 4, it is equipped with four cores and, according to the producer, it is to ensure an increase in the speed of data processing by one third, in comparison to the predecessors. X-T3 has a mechanical shutter and it can work with the speed of 11f/s. The series can include around 36 uncompressed RAW photographs. After choosing the electronic shutter, the speed can exceed to 20f/s in full resolution and after the activation of Sports Finder function, we can save photographs with the speed of 30f/s. With the use of the Sports Finder function, images can be cut up to 1.25×, which will be distinguished by bright lines on the viewfinder.
       

      2). Fujifilm X-T3
       
      The producer's priority was improving the work of AF. The new sensor is equipped with 2.16 millions of phase-detection pixels, which results in the 4× increase in comparison to the present models. The detection involves almost 100% of the frame, thanks to which the AF is supposed to work in a quick and precise way, also with regard to the objects beyond the center of the frame. AF X-T3 is equipped with 425 points. In low light conditions, X-T3 achieves the effectiveness of 3EV.
       

      3). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS
       
      Thanks to the use of the effective X-Processor 4, the operation of phase-detection algorithms was improved - now the camera corrects sharpness and exposure measure 1.5× faster than the existing models of this producer. Face and eye detection in AF-C was also improved. A novelty is the function of the “initial photograph”, thanks to which the camera starts photographing already after the shutter is pressed halfway.
       
      Fujifilm X-T3 is a milestone in terms of video registration. The material in 10-bit range of colors can be saved on SD cards in 4K with the speed of 60f/s and it can be watched on the devices connected to the camera by means of HDMI cable. Video can be saved in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC or in the newer format - H.265/HEVC. The bit rate during recording amounts to 200Mbps. At the same time, we can share the image on an external device. The data read speed has also increased which enables the reduction of the rolling shutter effect. Video can be also saved in F-Long and, after the software update announced for the end of the year, also in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) – in one of the ITU-R BT.2100 standards.
       

      4). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS
       
      New noise-reduction algorithms of X-T3 compare two adjacent movie frames and, on the basis of their analysis, reduce disruptions. The minimum ISO value in F-Long and DR400% amounts to ISO 640.
       
      When it comes to the look, Fujifilm X-T3 is not much different than its predecessor, X-T2 - the body is made of magnesium and sealed. The upper knobs are now bigger and grooves made on them are deeper – the same with more accentuated buttons which significantly improves comfortable use. At the back, we will find a 3" LCD screen with the resolution of 1.04MP, the screen can be rotated in three directions and, contrary to its predecessors, is a touch one. The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder with the resolution of 3.69MP and the 0.75× zoom. The viewfinder delay is 0.005s and the refresh rate is 100f/s.
       
      The camera has two SD card slots, it is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which enable data transfer to other devices. On the body we will also find a headphone connector and a USB-C connector so we will be able to connect, for instance, a microphone.
       

      5). Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR + VG-XT3  Battery Grip
       
      The systemic news which are worth mentioning include for instance adding "monochromatic regulation" to the photosensitive film mode, which enables obtaining diverse color exposition. A novelty in the format is the Color Chrome effect, which ensures deeper color and richer color gradation during taking photographs of objects with high color saturation.
       
      Fujifilm X-T3 will appear on sale in a few days and it will be available in two color versions: silver and black. The camera's body will cost $1,500 and the set of X-T3 + the XF 18 - 55 lens will cost $1,900.
