The Fujifilm X-A3 specs have showed up on the web shortly after the rumor mill confirmed that the mirrorless camera will be unveiled at the end of August.
A new Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless camera will become official in the near future. As established in a previous article, it will consist of the X-A2 successor. Moreover, it is expected to become official within the next 10 days or so, meaning that it is coming by the end of this month.
In the meantime, reliable sources have leaked its specifications list along with some information about the Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 R WR, a wide-angle prime that will be both compact and lightweight. Here is what we have learned about them!
Fujifilm X-A3 specs list reveals new 24.3-megapixel sensor
Fuji’s upcoming MILC will feature a new 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor. It will be an upgrade from its predecessors’ 16MP sensors, but it still does not make the upgrade to an X-Trans unit, like its higher-end siblings.
The entry-level X-mount shooter will also come packed with a tilting 3-inch LCD touchscreen on its back, which can be turned upwards by 180 degrees for capturing selfies. In order to aid users with their self-photography technique, the device will offer a special mode called Portrait Enhancer.
Users will have built-in WiFi at their disposal and they can control the camera remotely from a smartphone or tablet. The battery life is said to stand at 410 shots on a single charge, while the maximum ISO sensitivity will be 25600.
The flash is integrated in the device and it will come in handy when using the Super Intelligent Flash mode, that will provide better photos in low-light conditions. As for other modes, photographers will find time-lapse, panorama, macro, and 11 film simulation modes as well as 10 creative filters.
The other leaked Fujifilm X-A3 specs consist of an electronic shutter, a self-timer, and a USB port. Everything else will become official shortly, thus you have to keep an eye on Camyx.
Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens to be unveiled soon, too
X-mount photographers have been really impressed by the XF 35mm f/2 R WR lens since it came out. It is a compact, lightweight, weathersealed, and high-quality optic, so more are needed.
Fujifilm confirmed that it will make more like this. The next model is the XF 23mm f/2 R WR wide-angle prime, which will deliver a full-frame focal length equivalent of about 35mm.
It will be roughly as big as the 35mm unit, while weighing 180 grams. Additionally, it has a 10-element configuration with two elements being aspherical. The exterior has a metal look, while the autofocus motor is a quick, silent stepper engine.
The focusing mechanism is internal, while another bonus is the fact that there will be absolutely no vignetting when using the optical viewfinder in both the X-Pro1 and X-Pro2 cameras. Once again, remain close to our website for the official launch!
