DPRTV: Fujifilm X-A7 Preview

DPRTV posted thier Fujifilm X-A7 Preview. Below are excerpts from the video:

  • X-A cameras have always been really cheap bad performers
  • Upgrade AF and video over other low-level Fujifilm cameras
  • The 16×9 rear screen is great and the touch screen works well
  • Shooting off the screen isn’t very stable
  • 6fps with AF is nice
  • The buffer rate isn’t very good because it only lets you get 4 shots in a row or 8-9 jpeg shots in a row
  • Face detect works pretty far away
  • Face detect can pick the wrong face in a crowd
  • Film simulation shows you a before and after view now which is a nice feature
  • 24mp using copper wire construction, but not BSI sensor
  • Two quick menus now
  • The digital interface should be more customizable since the camera lacks physical controls
  • AF isn’t great in low light, but this is a preproduction camera
  • The X-A7 is a simplified camera that is targeted at smartphone users
  • You can connect the camera to your phone via USB-C
  • Preamp his shooting video
  • The video is sharp and the selfie screen is great
  • There is an electronic stabilizer while shooting video and it’s not much better than any other electronic stabilization system so it’s better to stabilize in post
  • It’s good to have usable 4k recording on this camera
  • Great to have a mic jack, but there is not headphone jack
  • You will need an ND filter
  • Should have left more USB-C features in the camera like the mic jack adapter the XT30 has
  • Base ISO for video is 400
  • Great Fujifilm colors
  • This camera is marketed to the JPEG market
  • AF performance is good, but not great
  • Great for portraits, but not a good camera for sports/action
  • Good things are Great screen, very light (but cheap feal), the touch screen is great, and great joystick on the back
  • Bad things Limited customizable buttons so no back button focusing and no EVF
