Fujifilm X-A1 Compact System Camera in Black + 16-50mm Lens

• A compact and stylish FUJIFILM X entry-level interchangeable-lens camera.
• Large 16.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor that captures rich tonal expression, has an increased dynamic range and sensitivity settings up to a maximum ISO of 25600.
• High definition tiltable 3-inch LCD
• Compatible with all Fujifilm X mount lenses and particularly suited to the compact and lightweight FUJINON XC lenses
• Wireless image transfer for instant transfer to a mobile device or computer.

The X-series design DNA that defines the globally award-winning operability and styling of the FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1 is encoded in the new FUJIFILM X-A1.

The X-A1s ultra compact and lightweight body
This is a camera thats designed to be compact enough to wear around your neck, without weighing you down. With its FUJIFILM X series appeal, the X-A1 echoes the popular X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras and is available in three colours: Black, Blue and Red.

Designed to enable you to adjust your settings quickly and easily
All of the adjustable buttons and dials are positioned on the right-hand side of the cameras rear LCD panel in pursuit of optimum operability and ease-of-use. When holding the camera with just your right hand, the buttons have been designed to allow you to access all functions and to adjust the settings easily.

Featuring a 920,000 dot high definition tiltable 3-inch LCD for creative and multi-angle shots
The 3-inch high-definition LCD screen tilts up and down enabling users to capture "worms eye view" shots of flowers and pets, as well as high up shots over crowds of people.

Compact and stylish design in a class by itself
With the feel of FUJIFILM X, the FUJIFILM X-A1 echos the popular FUJIFILM X-Pro1 and FUJIFILM X-E1 cameras but this time its available in three colors: Black, Blue and Red.

Effortlessly take photos like a pro
The large APS-C CMOS sensor and EXR Processor II allow you to capture professional quality shots with minimal effort

High-speed Response Keeps You in Synch with the Moment
From the instant you spot your shot and switch ON your FUJIFILM X-A1, its high-speed performance will ensure the magic of the moment does not escape your lens.

Capture moving subjects with 5.6 fps (max. 30 frames**) high speed continuous shooting
Ideal for shooting children, pets and other subjects that seem to be constantly on the go, this built-in function lets you record a burst of up to 30 frames at a speed of 5.6 fps and then select the best shot.

High Sensitivity for noise-free and shake-free photos even in low light.
The high sensitivity performance of the APS-C CMOS sensor and EXR PROCESSOR II let you capture low-light scenes with crisp clarity free from noise. Turn up the sensitivity and capture dynamic scenes with confidence, even in dark conditions. You can shoot without a tripod and without fear of camera shake-ruined results.

Advanced Scene Recognition "SR" AUTO
Advanced SR AUTO automatically optimizes shutter speed, aperture and other settings. It instantly recognizes 58 scene types and then selects the most appropriate settings. All you do is frame, press the shutter and enjoy pro-class photo quality.
* 54 scene types with non-OIS lens attached

FILM SIMULATION - Signature color expression by FUJIFILM
The vivid colors of Velvia! The gentle skin tonality of ASTIA! Just like choosing the ideal film for a creative direction, you can select and simulate the unique look of FUJIFILMs acclaimed films. Film Simulation also lets you replicate MONOCHROME and SEPIA film photography.

Full HD Movie x Film Simulation Mode
With FUJIFILM X-A1s lens interchangeability, you can capture Full HD movies (1920 x 1080) and take advantage of the unique optical character of a wide selection of high-quality lenses. The combination of the large sensor and bright XF and XC lenses also lets you capture movies with a large, beautiful "bokeh" background. For more impact, you can add MONOCHROME or one of FUJIFILMs original Film Simulation modes and create impressive movies.

Even when shooting moving subjects, Auto Focus keeps the action in sharp focus. And if you are shooting scenes while walking, image stabilization can minimize blur***.

Selectable AF with a 49-point Metering matrix
Within the 49-point matrix of the auto focus area on the screen, AF accurately and swiftly recognizes the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus. It also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. Using the LCD monitor, you also can change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focusing.

Manual Focus
The distance index bar displayed on the LCD together with the depth of field scale and aperture value provides helpful guides for focusing.

ISO100 - 25600 Sensitivity setting range
Select from the broad sensitivity range of ISO100 - 25600 for shooting at a full 16-megapixel resolution. The FUJIFILM X-A1 also lets you set the AUTO ISO range (up to ISO 6400) and the shutter speed limit. For quick access to ISO settings, you can assign this function to the Fn or Q Button.
* Extended output sensitivity equivalent ISO 100, 12800 and 25600

In-camera RAW Converter
The FUJIFILM X-A1s built-in RAW data converter lets you view and edit your results without the need for your PC. The conversion of RAW data not only takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality control settings, but also lets the user apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.

Wireless Connectivity
Share your photos with family and friends in an instant

Wi-Fi Button (Fn button)
Just playback and select the photos you want to transfer and press the Wi-Fi button (Fn: Function button) on the top of the camera body to send photos to your smartphone or tablet. No ID or password. Its that easy.
