Fujifilm X-A10

Zoltan Arva-Toth | Compact System Camera
News image

The Fujifilm X-A10 is a new entry-level compact system camera with an APS-sized 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, Fujifilm X lens mount and a 180-degree slide-and-tilt type LCD for facilitating selfies. The camera's grip is shaped to accommodate both normal shooting and self-portraits. When taking a selfie, you can focus and release the shutter by pressing the vertical command dial found directly below your index finger to minimise camera shake. Rotating the tilting LCD upward by 180 degrees activates the Eye Detection AF to automatically adjust the focus on the subject’s eyes.  The slide-and-tilt mechanism enables the screen to be fully visible even when it is tilted by 180°. The use of two Command Dials means you only need a thumb to quickly adjust aperture, shutter speed and exposure settings. Frequently used functions such as white balance, continuous shooting and the self-timer can be assigned to standalone function buttons, eliminating the need to dive into the camera's menu. The dedicated Video Recording button on the rear plate enables users to easily record Full HD movies. The X-A10 offers a total of six Film Simulation modes, namely the true-to-life colours of PROVIA (standard), the vibrant tones and saturated colours of Velvia (vivid), the soft tones of ASTIA (soft), the documentary-style deep colours and soft shades of CLASSIC CHROME, as well as Monochrome and Sepia. Battery life is rated at approx. 410 frames on a single charge. The Fujifilm X-A10 with XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II kit will be available from January 2017 with a Suggested Retail Price of £499.
