Fujifilm X-A2

 

The Fujifilm X-A2 is a very capable mirrorless camera, but it's a little pricey for an entry-level model.

Solid image quality. 5.6fps burst shooting. Attractive design. Sharp kit lens. Built-in flash. Selfie LCD. Wi-Fi.

A little slow to focus. Doesn't support add-on EVF. No remote control via Wi-Fi. Video limited to 1080p30. No mic input.

Performance and Conclusions The X-A2 starts and captures an in-focus image in about 1.6 seconds, focuses in 0.15-second, and can shoot at up to 5.6fps in continuous mode. It's not the speediest mirrorless camera in terms of startup, but it's not as...

Fujifilm X-A2 interchangeable-lens camera jumps on selfie bandwagon

 

Very, very incremental updates from the X-A1 include a flip-up display.

Fujifilm X-A2 Review

 

The Fujifilm X-A2 is a new entry-level compact system camera designed to take better selfies, thanks to its 175° tilting LCD screen with face and eye detection. Key features of the X-A2 include a 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, newly-developed Eye...

The new Fujifilm X-A2 is a very modest upgrade of the X-A1, but the few improvements that Fujifilm have made are important ones for the camera's main target market of compact-camera and smartphone upgraders looking to take their first step into the...

Fujifilm X-A2 Review

 

The Fuji X-A2 feels designed for both new, step-up photographers as well as more experienced ones who expect additional physical controls. And though it lacks the fancy X-Trans sensor of higher-end Fuji cameras, the image quality is rather impressive...

Very good image quality; Great high ISO performance for its class; Very good optical performance from the kit lens; Decent battery life; Very good value for the money

No built-in EVF; Slower than average full autofocus shutter lag in testing; Sluggish continuous AF for stills & video; Mediocre burst speeds; Limited dynamic range with JPEGs; No remote control with Wi-Fi

Camera Review: Fujifilm X-A2

 

With the X-A line, Fujifilm squeezes the esthetics of its X-series into a budget- and selfie-friendly design.

Good battery life; tilting display; video recording in Fuji film modes; close focusing with kit lens

Insubstantial build; memory card difficult to dislodge; continuous shooting slower than comparable models

There are many capable mirrorless cameras selling for about what the X-A2 is asking, and there’s no unambiguous winner. Sony’s A6000, for instance, offers a higher-resolution sensor, twice-as-fast continuous shooting and more versatile video...

Fujifilm X-A2: A competent performer for the budget conscious

 

Can you have a retro looking APS-C mirrorless camera for under S$900? Fujifilm thinks so with its X-A2. We take the company's latest entry level mirrorless camera through its paces to tell you how it performs.

Great value considering you get an APS-C sensor with a competent kit lens ; Wi-Fi is built-in so you can shoot direct to a smart device ; Tilting LCD is now more versatile ; Good detail in images

Still no X-Trans sensor ; Eye detect AF is still a little slow ; Seems to underexpose slightly ; Could use less plastic in both body and kit lens

Overall, we’d say that the X-A2 is a fairly competent camera that should more than meet the needs of first-time users who are moving into the world of interchangeable lens cameras. For under a thousand dollars, you get a camera with a larger APS-C...

Fuji X-A2

 

Fuji X-M1. It features a typical 16 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor with Bayer and Anti-Alias filters, plus a second generation EXR II processor which captures full-resolution images at 5.6 FPS and 1080p HD video at 30 FPS.

Extremely low image noise until ISO 1600, Good dynamic-range, Nicely saturated colors, Good LCD visibility and viewing angle, High number of external controls, Efficient ergonomics

Tendency to over-expose, General image softness, Slow autofocus, Below average shot-to-shot speeds, 1s Delay to start video capture, Poor AWB accuracy, Dials moves too easily

Fuji Fujinon XC16-50mm F/3.5-5.6 OIS II included as kit-lens.

Fujifilm X-A2 review

 

Fuji's retro-inspired X-series gets a capable new entry-level model

Affordable price ; Decent quality kit lens ; Strong build quality and performance

No viewfinder ; Screen hard to use in sunlight ; Adjustment dial gets jogged frequently

A solidly built entry-level system camera offering a lot for the price
