You don't have to spend a lot of cash to get your hands on a camera that can take amazing photos. The Fujifilm X-A5 is one such camera. Much like its X-A3 predecessor, the X-A5 is one of Fuji's most affordable X Series models, and offers a nice mixture of ease-of-use and more advanced shooting features. While it doesn't offer some of the fancier hardware like their higher-end models, such as an X-Trans sensor, the Fuji X-A5 offers very nice image quality -- among the best we've see at this price, in fact. 

We've just published our finalized X-A5 review, complete with our full array of lab testing and our review conclusion. The X-A5 is a pretty nice camera overall, and while some its hardware upgrades, namely the updated sensor with phase-detect AF, didn't at times live up to our performance expectations, the X-A5 remains impressive when it comes to delivering quality photographs. At low ISOs, images are full of detail and rich colors, while higher ISO shots display very low noise.

Fuji XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens at 15mm (23mm equiv.), f/6.4, 1/110s, ISO 200.

If you're thinking of upgrading from your smartphone camera, the Fujifilm X-A5 is a nice, comfortable, easy-to-use camera that doesn't break the bank yet captures excellent photos. Read our Fujifilm X-A5 review for all the details!
