New releases from Fujifilm
This week Fujifilm has introduced a new X series lens and the Fujifilm X-A3 mirrorless camera
Fujifilm has introduced the FUJINON XF23mm f2 R WR wide-angle lens for the popular X series. It’s compact and lightweight, weighing just 180g, and features fast AF.
The new lens will join the X series range of interchangeable lenses in late September with a suggested retail price of £419. It has a versatile focal length equivalent to 35mm (in the 35mm film format), which should be perfect for shooting a wide range of subjects and the lightweight design should suit travel and street photographers always on the move. The lens is also weather and dust resistant and can operate at temperatures as low as -10-degrees, making it an ideal choice for outdoor photography.
Also in September, Fujifilm has announced the launch of the Fujifilm X-A3. The new camera has been designed with the younger generation in mind – its perfectly suited to taking self-portraits thanks to an LCD screen that is not blocked by the camera body when its tilted 180-degrees. The included Eye Detection AF and new Portrait Enhancer mode will improve self-portrait taking even more.
The X-A3 combines a newly-developed 24.3 megapixel APS-C sensor, which combined with the supplied XC16-50MM F3.5-5.6 OIS II FUJINON lens should enable the photographer to take high-quality captures. The new camera has a retro stylish design with the inclusion of touchscreen technology for using the Touch AF, Touch Shoot and Touch Zoom functions.
The A-X3 will be available exclusively from Jessops at the end of September at a retail price of £599 with the XC16-50MM F3.5-5.6 OIS II lens.
