X-A5 Features

  • Newly Developed Sensor

o    The regular range of ISO sensitivity has also been extended to ISO12800. Camera shake and noise are reduced in low light conditions and when shooting a fast-moving subject.

o    The X-A5 is the first X-A Series model to feature phase detection pixels. The Intelligent Hybrid AF system focuses twice as fast as previous models, ensuring that you capture photographic moments swiftly.

  • Newly Developed XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS Power Zoom Lens

o    The X-A5 kit debuts the new FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ, the first electric-powered zoom lens for the X Mount. The lens has the minimum working distance of just 5cm, ideal for clear close-up shots. The smooth electric-powered zooming mechanism that starts from the wide angle 23mm end (35mm film format equivalent) gives freedom in composition framing still images and video.

o    The FUJINON XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ will also be available for standalone purchase, so all X Mount camera owners will be able to have access to this lightweight, compact power zoom lens.

  • New User Interface

o    The X-A5 is equipped with a large rear LCD monitor that can rotate 180 degrees. When rotated 180 degrees, the Rear Command Dial automatically switches to the Zoom and Shutter Release function for fail-safe composition when shooting selfies. The rotation also activates the Eye AF function automatically to create high quality self-portraits with sharp focus on the subject’s eyes. The Portrait Enhancer Mode, offering its ability to produce beautiful skin tones, has also evolved with the new user interface.

  • Bluetooth Technology

o    Bluetooth technology has been incorporated for quick, easy and automatic transfer of still images and videos to paired smartphones and tablet devices, using the free smart-device app “FUJIFILM Camera Remote”. The camera is also compatible with FUJIFILM Instax SP-3 printer.
