don’t be fooled by its entry-level status. the FUJIFILM X-A1 Interchangeable Lens Camera is the Japanese camera maker’s shot at giving what a serious photographer need without ripping a huge hole in the wallet. while being compact and lightweight (it tips the scale at just 330 grams or 11.6 oz.), it still packs quite a punch with features like 16.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor, EXR processor II, up to 25,600 ISO, a 3″ 920K-dot tilt-able LCD monitor, built-in flash with Super Intelligent Flash technology, built-in WiFi for instant image sharing via mobile devices, and of course, interchangeable lenses. all these goodies and more are packed into an almost unimaginable compact statute with a design that allows for comfortable one-handed operation and that’s not to mention that it has a pretty awesome aesthetic to go with it, which makes heft-loathing, style-obsessed folks like us happy people.
btw, the 330 grams is with battery and memory card all in. the FUJIFILM X-A1 Interchangeable Lens Camera is of those camera that threatens the existence of heftier and more cumbersome DSLR cos’ we can’t see why would anyone, less you are a pro photographer, lug along one that weighs you down when you can have one that does pretty much the same but with less heft and bulk. hitting the market in this month for $599.95, in a choice of black, blue, or red and comes with XC16-50mm (24.76mm) F3.5-5.6 OIS lens. as always, do check out few more looks in the image gallery after the break.
