Fujifilm makes some excellent mirrorless cameras, as we’re sure that many X-T1/T2/Pro/Pro-2 users can verify, although admittedly they can be pretty expensive. Now if you’d like a Fujifilm mirrorless camera but don’t want to break the bank, you’ll be pleased to learn that Fujifilm has announced its latest mirrorless in the form of the Fujifilm X-A5.

This is a camera that comes with a price tag of $600 which also includes a XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, which makes it a perfect starting camera for those looking to get into photography. Of course additional lenses will cost more money, but it’s a good way to start, plus Fujifilm’s XC lenses in general tend to be more affordable due to their construction (made from metal, usually built in Japan).

In terms of specs, the X-A5 will feature a 24.2MP Bayer sensor with on-chip phase detection autofocus, making it twice as fast as focusing compared to its predecessor. Native ISO has also been improved, bumping it from 6,400 to 12,800 and can go up to 51,200, although chances are towards at end it might end up being too noisy to be of any use.

There is a built-in LCD display with touch capabilities, and it can also be flipped all the way up for selfies. The X-A5 will also feature 4K video recording, although it will be limited to 15 fps which while usable, it’s not exactly ideal. The camera also comes with a pop-up flash that looks like it can be adjusted if you want it to bounce of surfaces like ceilings.
