Fujifilm has today introduced the X-A10 – a compact, lightweight and stylishly retro mirrorless camera

The X-A10 is the latest addition to the X-series range of cameras and Fujifilm say that the X-A10 will deliver the premium image quality synonymous to the X Series with ease and that this makes it an ideal first interchangeable lens camera.

It houses a 16.3 megapixel APS-C sensor with primary colour filter and it features a tilting LCD screen that can be tilted 180-degrees, which should enable the photographer to take self portaits and shoot from awkward angles with ease. Rotating the tilting LCD upwards by 180 degrees will activate the Eye Detection AF to automatically adjust the focus on the subject’s eyes.

The X-A10 sports a retro design – it has two Command Dials, which should mean you only need a thumb to quickly adjust aperture, shutter speed and exposure settings. White balance, continuous shooting and the self-timer can be assigned to standalone function buttons, which will eliminate the need to go through the Menu screens to change settings. The new ergonomic grip is shaped to accommodate both normal shooting and self-portraits and the design was decided through prototype testing involving hundreds of photographers.

The included wireless function enables remote shooting from smartphones and tablet devices, and the new efficient design has extended the battery life to approximately 410 frames per charge and it supports charging via USB for maximum convenience, especially while traveling.

FUJIFILM X-A10 with XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II kit will be available from January 2017 with a Suggested Retail Price of £499.00
