Snap world-beating selfies with Fujifilm’s retro-styled X-A5

A mirrorless cam that won’t break the bank

We’re big fans of Fuji’s X-series lineup. The glorious X-T20 has hogged top spot in our system cameras top 10 for yonks. But as they (possibly) say, there’s an X cam for everyone, and casual photographers should take a long look at the entry-level mirrorless X-A5.

Boasting a newly developed 24.2MP APS-C sensor with phase detection autofocus and an improved image processing engine, the X-A5 will take great snaps wherever you are. It’s the smallest and lightest X-series cam to date, partly owing to the new compact FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ zoom lens that it ships with.

Chuck in 4K video recording, speedy Bluetooth image transfer and a 3in, 180-degree adjustable touchscreen (perfect for precision selfies), and you’ve got another formidable Fuji – especially when you consider the relatively wallet-friendly US$599 price tag. Grab one in February.
