Fujifilm has announced X-A5, the company’s smallest and lightest X Series mirrorless camera. Along with the X-A5 camera, Fujifilm also launched the XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ, which is an electric-powered zoom lens. It makes for the company’s most compact and lightweight zoom option yet.

The X-A5 camera is available at $599.95 with the lens kit. While the X-A5 comes in Brown, Pink, and Black colour variants, the lens comes in Black and Silver options. The latest entrant in the X-series, the X-A5 features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Bayer (instead of company’s X-Trans) image sensor, 4K video recording, automatic Bluetooth image transfer, and phase-detection autofocus. The camera has a 180-degree tilting rear LCD screen.

The company says that with a newly developed image processing engine, the X-A5 offers a processing speed 1.5 times faster than previous models. Meanwhile, the new X-series lens promises a smooth zooming mechanism that goes from a wide-angle 23mm to 67.5mm.

The X-A5 is the successor to Fujifilm’s X-A3 camera. With on-chip phase detection, the autofocus in X-A5 is now twice as fast as the X-A3, thanks to the Intelligent Hybrid AF system. Meanwhile, the X-A5 is equipped with a 3-inch rear LCD monitor that can rotate 180 degrees that automatically activates an Eye AF function which helps in capturing high quality selfies. It also has a Portrait Enhancer Mode, where users can select from three levels of skin tone enhancement.

It has a High-Speed HD Video function, which enables users to record HD video up to quad speed for slow-motion clips, the company says. Additionally, for seamless sharing of images, the X-A5 has brought the Bluetooth Low Energy technology that delivers automatic transfer of still pictures and videos to smartphones and other devices via the Fujifilm Camera Remote app.
