It seems like Fujifilm is never getting tired to impress us. After releasing the notable X-A2 some time ago, now the Japanese camera manufacturer is rumored to launch its newest Fujifilm X-A3. As the successor of X-A2, this compact mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera is also classified in the entry level camera. Matter of fact, this “entry level” label seems makes no sense since this camera product is in fact, amazing, especially when it has obtained the ISO 200-6400 standard that is expandable to 100-25.600. And beyond that labeling, we’re still wondering how the manufacturer could fit those sophisticated features in such a low price.
Fujifilm X-A3 Fashioned Look
This is a selfie cam. That’s what Fujifilm has stated since the first time of its release. So as the selfie camera, Fujifilm X-A3 brings a lot of supportive features for selfie people, especially on the design. Fuji seems to realize it so much that most of the selfie people are aware with aesthetical value. That’s why the manufacturer brings a super delighted design on X-A3. The camera comes in retro, with the compact and lightweight body covered in the faux-leather as the complement. Paired with the aluminum accents on the top cover, top dials, and front plate, this camera shines brighter under the name of fashion.

Moreover, the presence of several features such as Touch AF, Touch Zoom, and Touch AF will also maximize the functionality of the articulating LCD it has.

This is the kind of lens that is planned to be matched with all future Fujifilm cameras. This lens is rugged and small, but already completed with weather, dust, freeze, and water-resistance capability. Further, the metal housing of the lens is also reflecting the classy futuristic look.

Fujifilm X-A3 Price and Release Date
It is already stated before that Fuji has tagged this high quality camera in such a competitive price. But, what we emphasize here is that “competitive price” doesn’t always mean a regular, or bad in term of quality. This camera is the prove of it. With the presence of sophisticated photography features and better connectivity (it comes with Wi-Fi actually), the whole package of this camera is only tagged with such a low price. So, for you who want to own this camera, you should wait at least for a couple months later. It is due to Fuji plan to release Fujifilm X-A3 sometime in October.
