Fujifilm X-A3


The mirrorless Fujifilm X-A3 camera and the images it captures look great, but its autofocus system is way behind the competition.

Strong image quality. Stylish design. Compact. Selfie touch LCD. Film simulation modes. Wi-Fi.

Slow autofocus. Omits EVF. Inconsistent touch interface. Limited shooting buffer. No 30fps video option or mic input.

The Fujifilm X-A3 delivers solid image quality and gives you access to Fuji's excellent line of mirrorless lenses, and it sports a crisp, tilting touch LCD, Wi-Fi, and a stylish design. But the autofocus system is way too slow for a camera at this...

Fujifilm X-A3 Review


There is a lot to like about the Fujifilm X-A3, and as usual for Fujifilm, we have been impressed by the image quality that it is capable of producing - perhaps even more impressive when you consider that the sensor is not the higher quality X-Trans as...

Fujifilm X-A3 review


An affordable mirrorless camera with retro styling

Good image quality ; Solid kit lens ; Nice-looking design ; Great screen

No 4K video ; Plasticky finish in parts ; Menu system could be better

This retro-styled, entry-level mirrorless interchangeable lens system camera with Instagram-style filters and a 'smile' shutter for selfies is aimed at 'phoneographers' after an upgrade, but it will be a learning curve for most. However, consistently...

If you're looking for a mix of retro style and modern features, the Fujifilm X-A3 might be right up your street. On the one hand, its faux-leather-meets-aluminium design gives this compact system camera a classic 1950s look. On the other, it has some...
