The Fujifilm X-A5 is remarkably cheap, coming in at just $499 including a widely respected kit lens, making for inexpensive entry into the popular X Series. But can it hold its own against its more powerful siblings and will it stand up to the demands of a professional photographer? This great review will answer just that question for you.
Coming to you from Maarten Heilbron, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm X-A5 camera, the budget model in the X Series lineup. One thing to note is that the X-A5 does not carry an X-Trans sensor like other Fuji X Series cameras, as it actually uses a more traditional Bayer sensor. Nonetheless, you still get Fuji’s much beloved image processing and film simulations. Despite the cheap price, you also get some other notable features, such as a 4K burst function that shoots still at 15 fps, built-in focus stacking, 1080p at 60 fps, and an electronic shutter of up to 1/32,000 s. Of course, it won’t trade blows with the more advanced cameras in the lineup, but if you’re looking for a quality, highly portable camera, it’s certainly a very intriguing option. Check out the video above for Heilbron’s full thoughts.
