Fujifilm X-A7 Specs and Price Leaked – Announcement September 12 – UPDATE

UPDATE: Fujifilm X-A7 coming in 2 more colors in addition to the ones already leaked. Still one missing, though. Let’s see if nokishita can leak that one too :)

The Fujifilm X-A7 is about to be launched tomorrow, and I have been told a few more details about it by a new source (thanks a lot! :) )

  • 24 megapixel sensor
  • faster autofocus than Fujifilm X-A5
  • Touch LCD screen
  • USB-C for charging and connecting
  • Video: 4K at 24, 25 and 29.9fps as well as full HD up to 59.9

The specs above (and the ones we have shared in older X-A7 rumors) have now been confirmed also by nokishita:

  • Newly developed approximately 24.24 million pixel APS-C size sensor
    • Improved image quality during high-sensitivity shooting compared to X-A5
    • Uses copper wiring that enables high-speed data reading
    • Approximately 8.5 times the number of image plane phase difference pixels compared to X-A5
  • Realized 4K video using abundant amount of information equivalent to 6K by reading all pixels of the sensor
  • Capable of shooting smooth 4K movies at 30 frames / second
  • 4K video can be recorded continuously for up to 15 minutes, and full HD / HD video for up to 30 minutes.
  • Equipped with “Countdown Video” function for the first time as “X Series”
  • Equipped with “HD High Speed ​​Video” function
  • Equipped with 3.5 inch wide (16: 9) touch panel monitor of about 2.76 million dots
  • High visibility is achieved with a rear LCD monitor with a maximum brightness of 1000 candela.
  • For the first time in the “X Series”, the “Vari Angle Structure” that allows the monitor to be adjusted to any angle is adopted.
  • Lineup of “Scene Position” with “Light Trail” as “X Series” for the first time
  • Wi-Fi / Bluetooth installed
  • Input / output terminals: USB Type-C (USB 2.0 High-Speed), HDMI micro terminal (Type D), φ2.5mm 3-pole mini jack
  • Recording media: SD card / SDHC card / SDXC card UHS-I
  • Battery: NP-W126S
  • Standard number of shots: approx. 270 standard, approx. 440 economy
  • Size: 119.0mm x 67.7mm x 41.2mm
  • Weight: Approximately 320g (including battery and memory card), approximately 271g (main unit only)
  • Color: Silver, Camel
  • Kit lens: XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ
  • Reservation start date: September 12, 2019
  • Scheduled release date: Late October 2019
  • International Price: Lens Kit $ 699

The Fujifilm X-A7 looks actually like a very nice camera to me.

Especially the upgrade in the video compartment (now 4K@30p instead of the previous – and rather useless – 4K@15p) together with the new fully articulating screen, make it a compact options for vloggers.

A nice camera is coming our way, although I wish it had a pop-up EVF instead of a pop-up flash.

Fujifilm Patents 500-2500mm Zoom Lens for 1 inch Type Cameras

My buddy at CanonWatch told me that FUJIFILM filed a patent for a 500-2500mm zoom lens for a 1.0-type sensor camera. These lenses are for a security use.

In recent years, the demand for surveillance cameras used for remote monitoring in harbors and / or airports has increased. Accordingly, the demand for telephoto and super telephoto variable magnification optical systems is increasing. In this type of variable magnification optical system, the optical element disposed closer to the object side tends to have a large diameter and the weight balance tends to deteriorate, and therefore there is a demand for a reduction in the load on the object side portion. There is also a demand for an inexpensive configuration, a high zoom ratio, and high performance.

 However, the variable power optical system described in Patent Document 1 requires a large-diameter aspherical optical element and is expensive.

In order to solve the above problems, the variable magnification optical system of the present invention includes two reflecting mirrors each having a reflecting surface facing each other in order from the object side. “

Lens Specification:

  • Zoom ratio: 5.0
  • Focal length: 500.007 2501.077 mm
  • F number: 3.125 15.632
  • ω: 0.917 0.183
  • Image height: 8.0 8.0 mm

Fujifilm Patent Shows EVF with Diffractive Optics

Fujifilm has patented an EVF with diffractive optics, which should allow for better and more compact EVF design. From the patent description:

“A finder optical system suitable for an electronic viewfinder, etc., capable of widening the viewing angle, correcting various aberrations and downsizing

 In recent years, an electronic view finder (Electronic View Finder) is often used as a finder of a digital camera or the like. The electronic viewfinder includes a display element such as a liquid crystal panel for displaying an image of a subject, and an eyepiece optical system for observing the image displayed on the display element.

However, the degree of freedom in the configuration of the display element and the eyepiece optical system in the electronic viewfinder is extremely low. If the specification of the finder magnification is increased, that is, the viewing angle is increased, the number of lenses constituting the eyepiece optical system increases, and it becomes difficult to reduce the size of the finder unit. When it is attempted to improve the specifications without increasing the number of lenses, it is difficult to correct various aberrations of the finder optical system.

In view of the above circumstances, the present invention can be suitably used for an electronic viewfinder and the like, and various aberrations can be corrected well while achieving a wide viewing angle, thereby reducing the size of the finder unit.”
