Overview: The Fujifilm X-A7 is part of the X-series mirrorless digital cameras. It has the Fujifilm X-mount, and is compatible with XC- and XF-series lenses. This kit includes the X-A7 camera body and the XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ compact zoom lens.
3.5" Vari-angle LCD Monitor: The X-A7 has a 3.5" color LCD touch screen monitor with 2.76-million dots and approximately 100% horizontal and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. The monitor features variable angles for better visibility while framing high-angle or low-angle shots from either landscape and portrait orientation. You can vary the amount of information displayed on the monitor from a full info display to "Information Off".
Touch Screen Modes: The 3.5" LCD monitor can be used as a touch screen, offering focusing, shooting, and playback controls. Along the outside edges of the touch screen are controls for still photography and movie recording.
Image Sensor/Processor: The X-A7 features the new 23.5mm x 15.7mm (APS-C-sized) CMOS image sensor with 24.2-million effective pixels. An APS-C image sensor is approximately 14 times larger than the image sensor on a typical smartphone, and will deliver excellent image quality, even in low light, and beautiful defocusing effects.
Sensor Cleaning: The camera uses ultrasonic vibrations to remove dust from the image sensor. In the menu, you can choose when sensor cleaning is performed: On demand, when the camera is switched on, or when the camera is switched off (except when turned off in playback mode).
Recording Media: Still images and movies can be recorded onto optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards, including high-speed UHS-I cards, and cards with a UHS speed class of 3 or better. No memory cards are included with the camera.
Recording Still Images: The X-A7 records still images in JPEG format in 3:2, 16:9, 4:3, and 1:1 aspect ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW format images can be recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor. RAW images can be processed on a computer using the downloadable RAW File Converter EX application software, or converted to JPEG in the camera. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the same time, with separate RAW and JPEG (in Fine or Normal image quality) files recorded and stored.

Shooting Modes: The Fujifilm X-A7 lets you set the shooting mode via the rotary Mode Dial on the top of the camera. You can select from the following modes:
- Advanced SR Auto: The camera automatically optimizes the settings according to the scene or type of subject. Available scenes include: Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait, and Backlit Portrait.
- Program AE: The camera selects the shutter speed and the aperture settings for best exposure. Using Program Shift, you can produce the same exposure with other shutter speed/aperture combinations.
- Shutter Priority AE: You choose the shutter speed, and allow the camera to set the aperture for optimal exposure.
- Aperture Priority AE: You select the aperture, and the camera sets the shutter speed to obtain the best exposure. Aperture settings vary with the attached lens. With the included 15-45mm lens, the aperture range is from F3.5 to F22 (wide angle) and F5.6 to F22 (telephoto).
- Manual: You can manually set the exposure by choosing the shutter speed and aperture settings.
- Panorama: This setting allows you to record a single panoramic photo by panning left or right (horizontal panorama) or tilting up or down (vertical panorama) as you record.
- Scene Position: The camera lets you select from a list of "scenes," each with settings appropriate for the shooting conditions or subject type. Available scenes include: Portrait Enhancer, Landscape, Sport, Night, Portrait, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Underwater, Party, Flower, Text, Multiple Exposure, and Light Trail.
- Advanced Filter: This setting applies specific filters to produce an effect. Available filters include: Toy Camera, Pop Color, High-Key, Low-Key, Fish-Eye, Dynamic Tone, HDR Art, Miniature, Cross Screen, Rich & Fine, Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple), Fog Remove, and Soft Focus.
ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity using the top mounted dial on the top of the camera. You can set the ISO sensitivity to Auto 1, 2, or 3, or manually from ISO 200 to 12800 in 1/3 EV increments. Extended settings are equivalent to ISO 100, 25600, and 51200. With the ISO Auto Setting, you can set a Default Sensitivity (200-6400), a Maximum Sensitivity (800, 1600, or 3200), and a Minimum Shutter Speed (1/500 to 1/4 sec).
White Balance: White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of lighting. You can select Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, and Incandescent light, and Underwater. In addition, you can measure for a white balance value or display and select from a list of color temperatures.
Film Simulation: The X-A7 can simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the following options:
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited for nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- Classic Chrome: soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look.
- Pro Negative Std: a soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced; a good choice for studio portraits.
- Pro Negative Hi: offers slightly more contrast than Pro Negative Std, making it ideal for outdoor portraits.
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white
- Monochrome (with filters): black and white pictures with yellow (Ye), red (R), and green (G) filters, to deepen shades of gray corresponding to the selected color
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image, you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader color rendition of Adobe RGB (for commercial printing).
Exposure Compensation: Using the Main Command dial on the top of the camera, you can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps. For movies, the Exposure Compensation range is -2.0 EV to +2.0 EV in 1/3 EV increments.
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take multiple shots, one using the metered value for exposure, some overexposed by the selected amount (+/- 3 EV in 1/3 EV steps), and some underexposed by the same amount.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take multiple shots, one using the current sensitivity setting, some with the sensitivity raised by the selected amount (1/3, 2/3, 1 EV), and the others with the sensitivity lowered.
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the three film simulation settings selected.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will take three shots, each with different dynamic ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
- HDR: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera takes multiple shots at different exposures and combines them into a single, high-dynamic-range image to reduce the loss of detail in highlights and shadows. The bracket values are Auto, 1.0 EV, 1.5 EV, 2.0 EV, 2.5 EV, and 3.0 EV.
- White Balance: After selecting a bracketing amount (+/-1, +/-2, +/-3), the camera takes one shot and processes it to create three copies: one at the current white balance setting, one with the fine tuning increased by the selected amount, and another with the fine tuning decreased by the selected amount.
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. At the High Speed setting, the camera can take up to 10 pictures at 6 frames per second (Continuous High), or 50 frames at 3 fps (Continuous Low). The frame rate and number of frames per burst may vary depending on the type of memory card used. Continuous Shooting results are lower when shooting RAW photos.
Multiple Exposures: You can create a photograph that combines two exposures. After the first shot is taken, it will be shown superimposed on the view through the lens, and you will be prompted to take the second shot.
Long Time-exposures: Shutter speeds of 1 second or slower are considered "long time-exposures." Use of a tripod is essential to prevent blurred photos. For Bulb photography, the shutter will remain open as long as the release button is pressed, or up to 60 minutes (mechanical shutter). During Time photography, the exposure begins when the shutter button is pressed, and ends when the shutter button is pressed again. An optional remote release (RR-100), or third-party electronic shutter releases can also be used. To reduce noisy long time-exposures, the Long Exposure NR feature can be used.
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the camera moving when the shutter button is pressed. Additional auto shutter features include:
- Face Auto Shutter: Face Auto Shutter feature takes a picture when the camera detects a portrait subject facing the lens.
- Smile: The Smile feature releases the shutter when the subject smiles.
- Buddy: A photo is taken when it detects two subjects close together. (Options include Near, Closeup, and Super Close)
- Group: The camera takes a picture when it detects the selected number of portrait subjects (1, 2, 3, or 4).
Remote Release: You can shoot images using the optional RR-100 Remote Release, which plugs into the 2.5mm connector. The RR-100 can be used to take photos when the camera is on a tripod or for long time-exposures.
Focus Modes: The camera lets you choose how the camera focuses. Using the rotary control on the front of the camera, you can select Single AF, Continuous AF, or Manual Focus.
Face Detection/Eye Detection: The camera lets you choose face detection to automatically detect human faces, or eye detection to automatically detect and accurately focus on human eyes for successful portraits with a shallow depth of field. You can even define the area of priority focus, including right or left eye, or the eye closer to the camera.
Flash Modes: The X-A7 has a built-in pop-up flash, plus a hot shoe for an optional external flash. Optional external flash units (EF-X500, EF-42, EF-X20, EF-20) can be used for additional lighting at night or indoors under low light. You can choose from the following flash modes: Auto Flash, Forced Flash, Slow Synchro, Slow Synchro (2nd Curtain), Commander, and Suppressed Flash. Red-eye removal minimizes the "red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode.
Light Metering: The X-A7 uses 256-segment, TTL (through-the-lens) metering, where the camera automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure. You can select from three metering options: Multi, Spot, or Average.
Viewing Images: Images can be played back one-at-a-time or in two multi-frame views of a 9-image grid (3 x 3) and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails.
Playback Zoom/Cropping: You can enlarge a still image in the monitor according to the image quality (size). After you have zoomed in and scrolled the picture to the desired composition, you can create a cropped image of a picture. Copies will have an aspect ratio of 3:2, and will be saved as a separate file.
Resize: To create a small copy of a picture, you can select "Resize" from the menu. The new images vary in size with the original image.
Performance Modes: The camera gives you the choice of performance modes, enabling you to better manage the use of battery power. You can choose from the following:
|Option||Startup||Frame Rate||Battery Endurance|
|High Performance|| |
