Why you should buy FujiFilm X-A2?
The new Fujifilm X-A2 is virtually identical in appearance to the previous X-A1 model, the main physical change being the addition of a redesigned LCD screen that can now be tilted to the front for easier selfies.

As with all the other X-series cameras, the Fujifilm X-A2 is a classically styled interchangeable lens camera that recalls film rangefinders from the past, with a lovely retro design that draws admiring glances from everyone that sees it. At the same time Fujifilm have once again incorporated modern technologies that help ensure that the X-A2 isn’t simply a blast from the past.

As with the X-M1, the X-A2 dispenses with any kind of viewfinder, either optical or electronic, and it doesn’t accept a hotshoe mounted viewfinder either, making image composition a hold-at-arms length affair. While this is perhaps inevitable given the small size and weight, and is in-line with the X-A2’s main competitors, it does feel rather strange using a Fujifilm X camera that you can’t hold up to your eye, especially when Fujifilm have made such a big play of their innovative viewfinder technologies. On the other hand, given the X-A2’s budget price-point, it’s probably be better suited to its target market of compact-camera upgraders looking to take their first step into the world of interchangeable lens cameras, who are used to not looking through a viewfinder.

The X-A2’s rear LCD screen offers the ability to tilt it up or down from a forward-facing 175° angle to a low 90° angle, perfect for selfies, overhead and low-down shooting. With a resolution of 920K dots, it has the same resolution as the screen on the X-A1, again proving to be a little hard to see in bright sunlight. When you flip-up the screen to 175°, the camera automatically detects both face and eyes to help ensure that the main subject is sharp, and there’s a new Portrait Enhancer mode to make skin look brighter and smoother.

The X-A2 is the latest X-series camera to feature built-in wi-fi connectivity, although it’s rather restricted in use as it has to be paired with a smartphone. Install the FUJIFILM Camera App and you can transfer your pictures immediately to a smartphone or tablet PC and then edit and share them as you wish, transfer stills and video onto the camera, and embed GPS information in your shots from your smartphone. Note that you can’t control the camera remotely, only transfer images. The FUJIFILM PC AutoSave software provides a simple means to back up your photos to your home PC. You can also send photos directly to the instax SHARE Smartphone Printer SP-1.

    Bottom Line
    The Fujifilm X-A2 is a very capable mirrorless camera, but it’s a little pricey for an entry-level model.
