    Stylish, lightweight and ideal for photography on the move: introducing the new FUJIFILM X-A7 mirrorless digital camera

    The X-A7 is Fujifilm's latest camera to join the X-Series family: a mirrorless camera that captures beautiful stills and videos with astonishing quality and ease of use.

    Carrying Fujifilm’s own APS-C CMOS sensor in a camera body weighing just 320g, the FUJIFILM X-A7 instantly focuses on faces and eyes, for portraits, action and movies, and produces stunning colour even in low light. The X-A7 offers professional video features including smooth 4K movies and high-speed capture for epic playback. It offers easy touch and tap functionality on the large articulating screen – ideal for content creators and vloggers.

    FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of the FUJIFILM X-A7 (hereinafter “X-A7”) which will be available in October, 2019. It is an entry-level model for the X Series mirrorless cameras, known for compact, lightweight design and outstanding image quality.

    The X-A7 carries a newly developed 24.2MP APS-C image sensor. The sensor uses copper wiring for high-speed data readout and phase-detection pixels across the entire sensor. This gives the camera very fast, accurate AF capable of quickly detecting and tracking eyes and faces even in low light. The X-A7 also features smooth 4K, high speed video and advanced high-ISO capabilities never before seen in this class of camera. Such advanced features are packed into the compact camera body that weighs just 320g, making it a great choice as a true ‘go-anywhere’ camera producing stunning still images and high-end movies for content creators and vloggers.

    The rear of the camera features a 3.5” 16:9 touchscreen LCD with the maximum luminous intensity of approx. 1,000 candelas, which allows creators to clearly see the live view even in strong daylight. The use of the vari-angle structure, the first time in a X Series cam era, means the monitor can be rotated in various angles freely. The Portrait Enhancer mode, in combination with the Face / Eye AF, boosts the quality and operability of taking self-portraits, achieving beautiful focus and skin tones with ease. Furthermore, the newly-designed “Smart Menu” facilitates intuitive touchscreen operation so that even beginners can produce high-quality images easily.
