The Japanese company Fujifilm introduced a new model of the X-A7 camera, positioned as a major update to the X-A5. The model received several improvements at once compared to its predecessor: the increased resolution of the sensor, support for video recording in 4K with a double frame rate and a modified autofocus algorithm.
The original X-A5 was able to record 4K video exclusively at a frequency of 15 frames per second. In the X-A7, this figure reaches 30 frames per second. APS-C sensor resolution - 24 megapixels (6000x4000 pixels). The maximum ISO value for the model is 25,600 against 12,800 for the X-A5. Burst speed remained unchanged at 6 frames per second.
Another dramatic improvement was the 8.5-fold increase in the number of autofocus points - this provides a much faster focus speed and faster face recognition. Fujifilm X-A7 is equipped with a 3.5-inch IPS touch screen, which is used to control camera settings. The weight of the camera is 455 grams (without a lens - 320 grams) with the dimensions of the "carcass" 119 x 38 x 41 mm. The model is equipped with a Fujinon XC 15–45 mm F3.5–5.6 OIS PZ lens.
Fujifilm X-A7 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. The autonomy of the device involves capturing 440 photos from a single charge. The camera has a special “Bright Mode” using HDR.
The camera will go on sale on October 24.
