Fujifilm X-A7 Hands-on Preview


Right on time for its roughly 18-month release cycle, Fujifilm's budget-friendly X-A mirrorless camera line has just gained its latest model, in the form of the line-leading Fuji X-A7. Sporting a familiar-looking body that's almost exactly the same size as that of its predecessor, and a little bit lighter, the X-A7 is far more than just a simple refresh, however.

Inside its newly-designed body you'll find an updated 24.2-megapixel image sensor. Around the back, the LCD panel has been widened to a 16:9 aspect ratio, and its resolution has been vastly increased, too. The X-A7 also debuts a 4K video capture mode that's actually usable, thanks to a doubling of the maximum frame rate to 30 fps. And there are a fair few other changes, too, including updated Bluetooth and USB connectivity, improved AF, new scene modes and more.


The Fujifilm X-A7 goes on sale in the US market from October 24, 2019, and will come bundled with a Fujinon XC15-45mmF3.5- 5.6 OIS PZ lens in a choice of camel, dark silver, mint green and silver handgrip colors. List pricing is set at around US$700 / CA$900. Find out more in our just-published Fuji X-A7 preview, and also see our just-published Lab Images from our pre-production (beta) sample!
