Smallest and lightest FujifilmX camera yet With a compact bodyform, long list of features and competitive price, the Fujifilm X-A5 is sure to attract many admirers

At the Fujifilm X-A5’s heart is a newly developed 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor that includes an Ultra Sonic Vibration cleaning system. The sensor can produce JPEGs, Raws and shoot full HD video. There’s some 4K video capability too. The regular ISO range is 200 to 12,800 and that can be expanded to 51,200, while the X-A5 is the first in this series to feature phase detectionpixels originallydeveloped for top-end X-series models so you also get an Intelligent Hybrid AF system that delivers very fast, accurate autofocusing. The large rear touchscreen can flip up 180° to face forward, making for easy selfie shooting and in this position Eye AF is activated for spot-on selfies. Once you have made your capture, shots can be shared thanks to the X-A5’s low-energy Bluetooth for image transfer to your smart device. Anew compact standard zoomhas been introduced too and it’s an ideal partner for the X-A5.
