Fujifilm has this morning unveiled a new compact system camera – boasting a 175° tilting LCD screen – called the X-A2.
Rotation of the X-A2’s screen triggers the operation of the new eye detection AF (designed to automatically focus on a subject’s eyes), in a bid to make it easier for users to shoot self-portraits.
The 3in display has a resolution of 920,000 dots.
The Fujifilm X-A2 is due out in March, priced £449.99 with a 16-50mm lens.
The X-A2 carries a 16.3-million-pixel, APS-C sized, imaging sensor and EXR Processor II engine, plus an ISO that can be extended to 25,600.
The 16-50mm lens has a claimed minimum working focusing distance of 15cm, for example.
Fuji has also unveiled a new ‘super-compact and ultra-lightweight’ X-series fixed-lens camera, the XQ2, that houses a 4x f/1.8 lens and a 2/3in imaging sensor.
Fuji claims the XQ2 is one of the most pocketable advanced cameras around, measuring 100 x 58.5 x 33.3mm.
The 4x lens is designed to deliver the 35mm viewing-angle equivalent of a 25-100mm zoom.
The XQ2 can autofocus in 0.06secs, according to Fuji, which will launch the camera in March at an expected price of £329.99.
