Fujifilm has just released its new X-A10 compact mirrorless camera complete with a newly-developed 16.3-megapixel APS-C sensor). The new Fujifilm mirrorless camera features a 180-degree slide-tilt rear LCD which means that the LCD can be viewed from the front enabling the user to take selfie portraits conveniently. It also has a compact mirrorless interchangeable lens.
Fujifilm X-A10 Compact Mirrorless Camera Design:
The Fuji X-A10 features a compact, retro design. Unlike the 24MP Fuji X-A3, which comes in a variety of the colors, the camera is only available in a silver finish and black grip. The Fujifilm X-A10 body weighs in at 11.7 ounces including battery and memory card, and has dimensions of 4.6×2.7×1.6 inches (116.9×67.4×40.4 millimeters).
The company says that it has designed the grip so that it will be comfortable to hold with the camera facing towards as well as away from photographer’s face, and that when shooting the self-portraits the rear command dial can be used to focus and trigger the shutter. It achieves this using a 180-degree slide-and-tilt LCD display and ergonomic body design. The 3-inch LCD has 1,040K dots and it can tilt all the way up to provide a real-time look when shooting selfies. The display offers approximately 100% coverage, but it doesn’t include any touchscreen functionality.
Fujifilm X-A10 Compact Mirrorless Camera Features:
The Fujifilm X-A10 uses a 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, which has a built-in ultra-sonic vibration sensor cleaning system. Like the previous Fuji X-A series cameras, the X-A10’s sensor uses a conventional Bayer color filter array, rather than Fuji’s proprietary X-Trans filter used in higher-end models. The Fujifilm X-A10 has a native ISO range of 200-6400, but it can be extended to ISO 100, 12,800 and 25,600. Fujifilm refers to X-A10 as having a “newly-developed” sensor, although it is currently unclear what this entails.
The X-A10 is claimed to deliver 410 shots per charge due to ‘energy efficient design,’ can shoot Full HD video at 24p, 25p or 30p for up to seventeen minutes. The camera’s top shutter speed in electronic shutter mode is 1/32000 sec.
