The Fujifilm X-A3 Hands-On Preview

The Fujifilm X-A3 mirrorless camera features a retro design with 3 colour options – silver, brown and pink. With a 3″ touch screen LCD display that tilts 180 degrees, it allows for selfies to be easily taken. But it’s more than just a selfie camera. The X-A3 boasts a new 24 megapixel sensor, and Fujifilm’s proprietary colour reproduction technology.

It also has built-in WiFi connectivity, which allows you to easily connect to wireless printers, like the Fujifilm Instax SHARE printer. Or you can connect your smartphone or tablet to the X-A3 to copy out files, or remotely control it.

The X-A3 has a normal sensitivity range of ISO 200 to ISO 6400, but this can be extended to ISO 100, ISO 12800 and ISO 25600. It also has a short 7 cm minimum focus distance using the XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II kit lens, which allows for macro photography.
