    Fujifilm X-A7 is a stylish mirrorless camera that is the successor of the X-A5. The camera is part of the basic line of cameras for the X-Mount with the AP-C sensor, but this does not mean that Fuji has compromised on the features of this camera. X-A7 is a perfect camera for people starting their adventure with photography as well as filming. This camera is also perfect as a vlogging camera.

      DESCRIPTION

    Fujifilm X-A7 is equipped with the newly designed 24MP AP-C X-Trans sensor which is supported by a 1.5× faster processor (unfortunately we do not know its name). The sensor construction uses copper wires that are supposed to reduce digital noise and provide an improved image quality at higher sensitivities.

     

    The camera uses a 425 pixel autofocus, which is based on phase detection. The camera effectively uses functions such as eye and face detection as well as object tracking. Also, working in low light poses with no major problems. The camera is equipped with a large 3.5" rotated touch screen in 16:9 format with high resolution for this type of 2.760,000 points. X-A7 does not have a viewfinder.

     

    When it comes to the quality of the files provided, the X-A7 has been optimized in terms of color reproduction and especially the color of the skin. The camera has also been equipped with the new "Light trails" mode, which makes it easier to take night photos with long exposure times.

     

    The use of a faster processor in the camera allowed the use of quite impressive film capabilities. In Fujifilm X-A7, the image is taken from a sensor area equal to 6K resolution, and then scaled to lower resolutions, which ensures high image detail and lower noise. In addition, we get the ability to shoot in HD at 120fps, in Full HD at 60fps, and the new "Countdown Video" mode, which is to help create content for social media. The footage is recorded with a predefined length: 15, 30 or 60 seconds, while the remaining available recording time is constantly displayed on the screen.

     

    Fujifilm X-A7 has one SD card slot (UHS-I). We also have wireless options with the option of sending photos and videos to smartphones and remote control. The camera is also able to take about 440 photos on one charge. Fujifilm has implemented a completely new smart menu in the X-A7, making it easy to change shooting settings and providing intuitive camera operation. The camera is very lightweight and weighs only 320g.

     

    Fujifilm X-A7 is a very interesting camera for aspiring vloggers and Youtubers.

      COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR CAMERAS

    Fujifilm X-A7 competes with several other cameras in the same price range and they are Fujifilm X-E3 and Panasonic Lumix GX9. Both designs from Fuji are very similar in many respects, and the main difference is the viewfinder that the X-E3 model is equipped with. Lumix GX9 is a slightly more expensive alternative, but it also has more advanced functions, the most important of which is the built-in sensor stabilization and also the viewfinder.

    • By MICHAEL GABLER
      Shown at the beginning of 2018, the Fujifilm X-A5 was a typically amateur construction. Although it introduced phase-based AF and 4K movie mode, users complained about the slow operation and average performance of the new products introduced (autofocus was not the fastest, and 4K resolution was basically limited by a useless 15fps frame rate).
       
      After the premiere of the X-T100, it seemed that it would replace the basic camera line in the manufacturer's offer. Meanwhile, we get the successor to the X-A5, which at first glance looks really interesting.
       

      1). Fujifilm X-A7 - Front
       
      First of all, the 24-megapixel sensor is supported by a 1.5 times faster processor, and the manufacturer promises improvement in the field of color reproduction, especially the skin.
       
      In addition, a faster processor has improved film capabilities (4K, 30 fps), and faster sensor sampling will reduce the rolling shutter effect usually found in amateur cameras when filming in high resolution.,
       

      2). Fujifilm X-A7 - Back
       
      The AF system itself has also been improved. We receive 425 pixels of phase detection (8.5 times more than before), which apparently results into more effective eye and face detection, tracking objects and working in low light. The design has also been better optimized in terms of power consumption and now allows us to take up to 440 photos (according to CIPA standards) on one charge.
       

      1). Fujifilm X-A7 - Top
       
      The ergonomics of the camera have also changed significantly, which can be considered both a plus and a minus. On the one hand we get better laid out function knobs (one on the front, the other on the back instead of both at the back) and a new large, 3.5-inch rotatable 16:9 touch screen with a high resolution of 2,760,000 points, which is brighter than it was before and as sensitive as the panels that we know from smartphones, so interacting with the screen is going to be fast and trouble-free. In addition, the camera is equipped with a new "smart menu" that makes it easy to change shooting settings and provides intuitive camera operation.
       
       
      Fujifilm X-A7 will be available for sale in October and will be sold in a kit with the Fujinon XC 15-45 mm f / 3.5-5.6 kit lens at a price of $700.
