Fujifilm X-A5 is Coming


Fujifilm X-A5

The Fujifilm X-A line is incredibily popular in Asia, and in some countries, like Thailand, the X-A line sells better than any other digital camera with interchangeable lenses (Canon and Nikon included).

The currently most recent iteration of this camera is the Fujifilm X-A3, announced back in August 25, 2016, with flippy screen and 24 MP ASP-C Bayer sensor with no on sensor phase detection pixels (PDAF).

Now Fujifilm is working on the Fujifilm X-A5. I don’t have the specs now, but would be nice if it would have PDAF.

The X-A5 could also be one of the 2 cameras Fujifilm registered bluetooth for (the first one is the Fujifilm X-E3).

And in case you wonder why the successor of the X-A3 is not called X-A4, keep in mind that this camera is extremely popular in Asia, where the Nr.4 brings bad luck. Just check out “tetraphobia” on wikipedia.

REMINDER: Fujifilm will have an announcement on October 25. The Fujifilm Instax SP-3 square printer will come… and who knows if there will be other surprises ;) .
