Mirrorless camera even more charming, both in terms of features and the quality of the picture. With an interesting blend between the compact design, high-quality image results, as well as a relatively affordable price, it is no wonder many consumers are hooked. One of the interesting new mirrorless cameras is Fujifilm X-A2. With a price tag of $549, what kind of ability? Check out our review below.
Much like its predecessor, the Fujifilm X-A2 comes with a physically small enough but still comfortable. Grip was just a small bulge but enough to give enough grip when used with one hand. Obviously with the record camera lens paired together enough luggage as light as a lens or a 27mm pancake lens is f / 2.8.
This camera also look nice with a blend of metal and faux leather material that looks luxurious. When gripped, the material also feels comfortable. Although compact, the camera is still equipped with a rotary knob near the shutter button to adjust settings such as exposure compensation or navigate through menus and images (in review mode).
When used, this rotary knob is very useful to carry out these functions quickly. Unfortunately, it’s quite easy knob inadvertently rotated so that settings can be changed without the desired exposure. Other settings Settings can also be made via the rotary knob protruding near the rotary knob.
Switch between shooting mode is very easy to do. You just turn the knob that includes iconic emblem of scene modes and P / S / A / M / C to the left of the shutter button. At the rear, side screens, arranged buttons commonly found in digital cameras. As with other Fujifilm cameras, there is a Q button that serves to regulate basic photography functions quickly.
On paper, the Fujifilm X-A2 has a performance focus quickly and seemed suitable for photographing subjects anything including fast action like sports. But in practice, the performance autofocusnya only fast and accurate for stationary subjects in adequate light. For low-light conditions, you should pay attention to the targeted subject and object.
Transferring the images and video from the camera is also easy with the Wi-Fi. When tested with FUJIFILM Camera application on your Android phone, the transfer process that uses Wi-Fi Direct is rapid. Unfortunately you do not use a smartphone application or as a Remote Viewfinder.
For a mirrorless camera, the battery resistance is fair. With a combination of photos without and with flash, the batteries can last up to approximately 400 photos.
Suitable for selfie
Photographing in the sun can also be done easily, thanks to the “Sunlight mode” on the screen. But keep in mind, the image display inaccurate Sunlight Mode so you must watch the histogram to ensure the accuracy of exposure. Alternatively, you can rotate the screen up to 175 degrees to reduce the effects of sunlight is too strong.
The swivel screen is also useful when you want to take a picture of yourself alias selfie. You just rotate the screen up and exposes the lens to the face, and then press the shutter button to activate the timer. Face Detection AF function and Eye Detection AF helps ensure the face and the eyes of the subject are taken to stay sharp.
Noteworthy, the position of the hand will feel less natural, so vulnerable to shocks that result in the images blurred and not sharp. The default lens itself has a closest focusing distance of 15 cm.
The result is very good photo
Photographing wear Fujifilm X-A2 and luggage lens capable of providing satisfactory results. We deliberately tested only in JPEG mode.
For photos in ideal light conditions, the results are also very good with sufficient exposure fitting in automatic mode. Color reproduction is also very good and can be adjusted according to taste using Film Simulation Mode. Photo sharpness of the lens luggage is somewhat less convincing than the physical aspect because it uses a lightweight plastic material was also very good.
Noise generates quite low at night conditions, even up to ISO 3200 though. Still in the context of shooting at night, the performance of internal flash Fujifilm X-A2 includes both the measurement of the strength of lighting is quite good and not too strong. Obviously with the record of the distance between the photographer and the subject is not too close.
The development of mirrorless cameras has reached an astonishing rate. It was difficult to imagine how concisely X-A2 cameras can produce high-quality photos in all light conditions, while retaining the comfort and ease of use.
Although the speed and accuracy of focus can still be improved and the fact that its video mode only rudimentary course, Fujifilm X-A2 is capable of producing extraordinary images at different ISO settings. With spend about $549, you get a great mirrorless camera and compact, as well as a quality lens in the package.
