In the age of the selfie, a standard point and shoot digital camera will simply not suffice the average consumer. Fujifilm, a long-running veteran in shaping the way people utilize photography, has recently produced an update to their previous X-A1 model by incorporating a rotating 175-degree tilt feature to the camera’s 3-inch LCD screen, facilitating self-portrait capture for the selfie-obsessed amateur photographer. Paired with an XC 16-50mm II F3.5-5.6 OIS lens, the X-A2 features Wi-Fi capability, a 12 Megapixel 2/3” X-Trans CMOS II sensor with phase detection, and an EXR Processor II that enables rapid autofocus speed of up to 0.06 seconds. A user-friendly interface with all the technical bells and whistles you want from compact system camera, the X-A2 is a significant step up from the ubiquitous mobile-captured selfie.
The Fujifilm X-A2 will be available in February and is set at a retail value of $549.95.
