Ease of Use

The new Fujifilm X-A2 is virtually identical in appearance to lớn 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 kiến thiết that draws admiring glances from everyone that sees it. At the same time Fujifilm have sầu 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 form size và 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 h&, given the X-A2"s budget price-point, it"s probably be better suited to its target market of compact-camera upgraders looking lớn take their first step inlớn the world of interchangeable lens cameras, who are used khổng lồ 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 khổng lồ see in bright sunlight. When you flip-up the screen to 175°, the camera automatically detects both face & eyes to lớn help ensure that the main subject is sharp, & there"s a new Portrait Enhancer mode to lớn make skin look brighter và smoother.

The X-A2 is the lathử nghiệm X-series camera lớn feature built-in wi-fi connectivity, although it"s rather restricted in use as it has to lớn be paired with a smartphone. Install the FUJIFILM Camera App và you can transfer your pictures immediately lớn a điện thoại thông minh or tablet PC & then edit and nội dung them as you wish, transfer stills và đoạn Clip onto the camera, & embed GPS information in your shots from your smartphone. cảnh báo that you can"t control the camera remotely, only transfer images. The FUJIFILM PC AutoSave software provides a simple means lớn back up your photos khổng lồ your trang chính PC. You can also send photos directly lớn the instax SHARE điện thoại cảm ứng Printer SP-1.

Front of the Fujifilm X-A2

Despite its significantly low price on launch, the Fujifilm X-A2 is another well-built X-series camera, with very little no flex or movement in its chassis, despite having more plastic in its construction. It"s actually much lighter than a first glance might suggest, weighing in at 350g body toàn thân only with the battery và memory card fitted và measuring 116.9mm (W) x 66.5mm (H) x 40.4milimet (D), almost exactly the same as the X-A1.

There are quite a few plastic buttons and controls on the X-A2, most notably the memory thẻ / battery compartment door và the flap for the HDMI port, both of which wouldn"t look or feel out of place on a cheap compact, & the rear controls, especially the second thumb-operated control dial. Otherwise the X-A2 is very well constructed.

The X-A2 has a subtle but fairly effective hand-grip at the front and a dotted space at the rear for your thumb, with your grip helped in no small part by the textured faux-leather surface that runs around the full width of the camera. Two small metal eyelets on either side of the body toàn thân are used for connecting the supplied shoulder strap, which isn"t quite as luxurious as the rest of the package. A metal tripod mount is positioned slightly off-centre from the lens & next to lớn the memory card / battery compartment, so you"ll have to lớn remove sầu the camera from the tripod to lớn change either of them.

At the heart of the X-A2 is a 16.3 megapx APS-C sized CMOS sensor, with APS-C being a kích cỡ that"s more commonly used by the majority of DSLR cameras than by compact system cameras - Sony"s NEX range & Samsung"s NX series are the others.

Helping khổng lồ keep the image unique high is the new 16-50milimet zoom lens. With a plastic mount, slower apertures và no aperture ring, at first glance it seems khổng lồ be a poor alternative sầu khổng lồ Fujifilm"s standard 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS optic, but its low weight & compact kích thước are better suited to the smaller X-A2. It still offers the added benefit of built-in optical image stabilisation (3-stops) to help keep your images sharp, & most importantly doesn"t skimp on image chất lượng, making it a cut above the kit lenses that ship with most interchangeable lens cameras. The 16mm wide-angle setting of the new XC 16-50milimet II kit lens provides a useful minimum working distance of 15centimet from the sensor, and cleverly the Aukhổng lồ Macro function automatically switches the camera to lớn the Macro mode for quicker focusing, making the X-A2 quite well-suited to lớn close-up shots.

Rear of the Fujifilm X-A2

The 18-55mm lens" fairly fast maximum apertures in conjunction with the large APS-C sensor make it easy khổng lồ throw the background out of focus & achieve sầu some really nice bokeh effects. The combination of the fast apertures & the extensive ISO range of 100-25600 makes the X-A2 very well suited khổng lồ low-light shooting, allowing you lớn hand-hold the camera in places where you"d usually be reaching for a tripod (if allowed) or other support. The clever ISO Aulớn Control setting allows you to set a maximum sensitivity (up lớn 3200) và a minimum shutter tốc độ (1/30th is a good starting point), with the camera over-riding your ISO choice if it thinks you"re being too ambitious whilst maintaining a shutter speed that won"t introduce camera shake.

With its focal-plane shutter, the X-A2 has a very adaptable top shutter-speed limit of 1/4000th second in all shooting modes. Consequently there"s no built-in ND filter as on the X100/S, so if you want to use, say, the excellent 35mm lens at f/1.4 in very bright sunlight, then it"s a good idea to buy an actual glass ND filter (52mm), otherwise you"ll have to stop down to achieve a correct exposure.

The Fujifilm X-A2"s auto-focusing speed is quick, with a quoted fasdemo auto-focus time of 0.1 seconds, although it was slightly slower when using the 16-50milimet kit zoom. DSLR owners accustomed lớn the quichồng reactions of their phase-detection cameras will likely find the still slightly perceptible delay of the X-A2 as it locks onlớn the subject mildly annoying, but it simply won"t be an issue for the majority of owners. The X-A2 has 49 individual AF points laid out in a 7x7 grid, with the ability to lớn change the form size of the focus point via the rear command dial to achieve sầu more precise focusing. When using the new Multi-Target Aukhổng lồ Area AF mode, the X-A2 employs multiple focusing points to identify & track your intended subject.

Manual focusing is activated via the Focus Mode main thực đơn setting and then using the ring that encircles the lens to focus. The X-series lenses have sầu an electronically coupled focus-by-wire manual focusing ring, rather than a physical one, which in practice is less responsive sầu both in terms of feel and tốc độ. We criticised the older X-E1 for taking a lot of turns to lớn change the focus from 0.1m to lớn infinity. Fujifilm have sầu cleverly made the focusing ring more sensitive sầu to lớn how you use it - turn it slowly & the focusing distance changes slowly, but turn it more quickly và the camera quickly moves through the distance scale. It now takes less than 2 full turns and a couple of seconds to lớn jump from the closest focus distance to infinity, a big improvement on the X-E1.

Tilting LCD Screen

The X-A2 offers two ways of manually focusing. Firstly, there"s a handy blue distance scale along the bottom of the LCD screen, with a red bar indicating the the focusing distance and a white bar showing the depth of field, which actually changes in line with the current aperture - very clever. The X-A2 has another trick up its manual focusing sleeve in the shape of the rear commvà control (the dial which sits under your right thumb). You can press this in to magnify the view, making it much easier to lớn judge precise focusing. The second method is the Focus Peak Highlight function, which displays a trắng line around the subject when it"s in focus, something that Sony NEX users in particular have sầu been enjoying for a while. Both of these make manual focusing on the X-A2 more of a pleasure than a chore, although the revised fly-by-wire manual focusing ring operation is arguably more important.

To make the camera less obtrusive there"s a clever Silent menu option which turns off the speaker, flash, AF-assist lamp & most importantly the artificially-created shutter-release sound, instantly making the X-A2 perfectly suited khổng lồ more candid photography.

In terms of operational tốc độ, the Fujifilm X-A2 is actually quicker in some ways than the more expensive sầu X-E1 and X-Pro1 models, thanks khổng lồ the EXR Processor II. At 0.05 secs shutter lag is virtually non-existent on this camera, so once you have sầu phối the focus, you"ll never miss the moment because the camera can"t fire the shutter quickly enough, & the start-up time is only 0.5 secs. The write speeds from pressing the shutter button to lớn recording khổng lồ the SD / SDHC / SDXC memory thẻ are perfectly acceptable. Shooting a single RAW + Fine JPEG takes about 5 seconds khổng lồ record khổng lồ the card, but you can take another shot almost straight away.

Continuous shooting speeds are also good, with a top rate of 5.6fps for around 30 JPEGs or 10 RAW files, depending on the tốc độ of your memory card, with a slower 3fps speed also available for around 50 JPEGs or 10 RAW files. Note that both the focus and the exposure are set according to lớn the first frame in each series, so it"s not a particularly good system for tracking fast-moving subjects in varied lighting conditions, Thankfully the camera doesn"t lock up completely for a long time if you shoot the maximum number of images in a burst, allowing you khổng lồ continue shooting after just a few seconds.

Top of the Fujifilm X-A2

Located on top of the X-A2 are a small but responsive shutter release button, encircled by the On/Off switch. Alongside is the Wi-Fi / Fn button, which by mặc định during shooting provides quick access khổng lồ the ISO speeds, but can be customised to lớn suit your own needs from 12 different settings. Further customisation is available via the Custom Menu option, which lets you create, save and ređiện thoại tư vấn a mix of user-defined settings. There"s an external flash hotshoe for suitable dedicated external units, và the handy built-in pop-up flash which has a guide number of 7 at ISO 200. This is released via the Flash button on the rear of the camera, and its clever hinged kiến thiết positions it above sầu the lens & helps lớn reduce red-eye.

There"s an unmarked tactile control dial for changing the exposure compensation (+-2EV) or the shutter tốc độ, dependent upon the shooting mode, alongside the ridged dial for selecting one of the 12 different modes. As the X-A2 is a consumer-focused camera, there"s a smattering of scene modes alongside the beginner-focused Auto lớn modes và more photographer-friendly P/A/S/M modes. The clever Advanced SR AUTO automatically optimizes the shutter tốc độ, aperture and other settings, instantly recognizing 58 scene types & then choosing the most appropriate settings. Also available on the X-A2 is the Advanced mode, which offers a range of 13 different filter effects that can be previewed on the LCD screen (JPEG only).

The Fujifilm X-A2 can record full HD 1080p or 720p movies at 30fps with stereo sound, with a handy one-touch movie record button on the baông chồng of the camera. It"s fair khổng lồ say that the X-A2"s movie mode isn"t overly advanced. You can mix the aperture & shutter tốc độ before recording begins, but not during, and you can also phối the Film Simulation mode, so blachồng và White footage is possible. Continuous auto-focusing is possible, although it tends khổng lồ hunt around a lot before locking onlớn the subject, và manual focusing is also available (with the same caveats as for stills). There is a HDMI port for connecting the X-A2 to lớn a high-definition TV, although as usual there"s no cable supplied in the box. Also missing is a paper copy of the otherwise helpful manual, which is supplied on CD-ROM instead, along with the consumer MyFinepix software the slow và rather unintuitive RAW converter (essentially a specially customised version of the commercial Silkypix application).

The X-A2 has a fairly logical rear control layout, with almost all the controls located khổng lồ the right of the tilting LCD screen. Underneath the second control dial, there"s a cluster of buttons for choosing image playbaông chồng, one-touch movie record, the focus point, Trắng balance, continuous shooting và the self-timer, plus a central button which accesses the Main Menu system. The Q button provides quiông xã access khổng lồ lots of frequently used shooting settings including the ISO speed, White Balance, File Size và File Quality, with the 4-way controller and control dial used khổng lồ quickly change them. Finally the Disp/Baông chồng button is used for changing the LCD display or going back.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this đánh giá were taken using the 16 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 6Mb.

The Fujifilm X-A2 produces images of outstanding quality. It recorded noise-free JPEG images at ISO 100 all the way up to 6400, with a little noise at ISO 12800 và more visible noise and slight colour desaturation at the faschạy thử setting of ISO 25600, an amazing performance for a camera with an APS-C sensor. The RAW files were also excellent, with usable images throughout the entire range of ISO 200-6400.

The images were a little soft straight out of the Fujifilm X-A2 at the default sharpening setting and ideally require some further sharpening in an application lượt thích Adobe Photoshop, or you can change the in-camera setting. The night photograph was excellent, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds being long enough for most after-dark shots, & the Bulb mode allowing much longer exposures if required. The Dynamic Range settings subtly improve detail in the shadows and highlights, while the Film Simulation modes hark baông xã to a bygone era. The Advanced Filters provide some creative control over your JPEGs bewfore taking the shot.
