Fujifilm X-A1

 

The best ISO performance on any CSC for £500

Impressive performance ; Outstanding detail and ISO performance ; Brisk overall performance ; Pricey lens range

Screen only so-so ; No viewfinder option

For the more entry-level photographers that might be attracted to the X-A1 there are a host of automated shooting modes available. These include standard scene modes, along with an SP automatic scene selection mode, as well as a host of film simulation...

Fujifilm X-A1 review

 

The Fujifilm X-A1 is Fuji's baby interchangeable lens camera

Smaller than a semi pro DSLR ; Solid build ; Great retro film filters

No eye-level viewfinder ; No touch screen ; Too big to fit in pocket

Fujifilm X-A1 review

 

You don't need to spend a great deal to bag a decent camera these days, as Fujifilm proves with the X-A1 - the interchangeable lens camera that sits at the introductory end of its compact system camera lens line-up. The Fujifilm X-A1 puts in a very...

Great value, good image quality, broad choice of lenses, easy to use, built-in Wi-Fi, articulated display

Some grain at fairly conservative sensitivities, ome blurring on videos with significant image changes, no touchscreen

The Fujifilm X-A1 puts in a very good performance, and although we felt it was missing a few niceties when stood beside its closest competitors, we found them easy to overlook on account of the affordable price.

Fuji X-A1 review

 

Fuji's entry-level CSC gets more affordable

Most affordable Fuji CSC ; Natural, vibrant images ; Tilting LCD

No viewfinder ; Screen not touch-sensitive ; Standard sesnor

The X-A1 scores well for build and functionality and price, which makes the slight dip in image quality in comparison with the Fuji X-M1 palatable. It also provides a step into Fuji's X-system, which has a growing collection of lenses.

Elegant controls, but it doesn't share its pricier siblings' outstanding image quality

Fujifilm X-A1 review

 

The X-A1 is Fujifilm's handsome-looking entry-level interchangeable lens X-series compact, a range noted for reviving the critical fortunes of the brand with its classic styling and a feature set more geared to enthusiasts and pros than the...

Premium look and feel transcends its good value price point and status as the entry model in the range, swift and accurate auto focus, plenty of effects and Fuji’s Film Simulation modes provide a point of difference, classic styling, tilting LCD

A larger handgrip would have been useful, longer zooms in danger of making the camera feel a tad ‘front heavy’, no eye level viewfinder built in may dissuade purists

Quick review - Fujifilm X-A1

 

The Fujifilm X-A1 is still smaller and lighter than the smallest DSLR (Canon’s 100D) while offering a host of functionality, including a custom setting and Wi-Fi. At R7 000 it makes for a compelling offering, coming with a 16-50mm kit lens that is...

Fujifilm X-A1 Review

 

While the Fujifilm X-A1 is intended to be an entry-level model for Fujifilm's X-series cameras, it is an outstanding camera in its own right. If you can live without a viewfinder you'll discover what is arguably the best CSC in its price bracket.

Fujifilm X-A1 CSC Review

 

The Fujifilm X-A1 is the entry level mirrorless camera in the Fujifilm X series, designed to provide high image quality whilst being easy to use and is the most affordable mirrorless camera from Fujifilm, available for £499 with 16-50mm OIS kit lens.

Lacks panoramic mode, Lacks HDR shooting, Advanced filters don't save raw files, Wi-Fi doesn't allow remote operation

Fujifilm X-A1

 

Matching the more expensive X-M1 almost spec for spec, does the X-A1 offer the best value for money for a Fuji CSC?

The X-A1 is the fourth model in the X series and is the least expensive so far. It shares an almost identical spec sheet to the pricier X-M1, and features the same sized sensor and an identical processor. The performance is matched, though the X-M1 has...
