24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
A large APS-C-sized 24.2MP CMOS sensor can produce high-resolution still imagery and video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The camera provides quick performance throughout the camera, including a start-up time of 0.5 seconds, AF speed of 0.3 seconds, shutter lag time of 0.05 seconds, and a shooting interval time of 0.4 seconds. Additionally, the sensor lends itself to producing Full HD 1080p videos at 60 fps. Users can even use focus peaking during video recording.
The sleek form factor is ideal for everyday use and is benefitted by an intuitive control layout that incorporates top control dials as well as a dedicated Q Menu shortcut button for quickly accessing some of the most oft-used camera and exposure settings. Also integrated within the body design is a 180° tilting 3.0" touchscreen LCD, which is suitable for vivid monitoring and image playback, as well as front-facing selfies. Both face and eye detection are available, too, to ensure proper exposure and focus on the most meaningful of subjects.
77-Point Contrast-Detect AF System
In order to ensure crisp, sharp images, the X-A3 uses a 77-point contrast-based autofocus system along with a variety of scene-specific modes. This also includes new touchscreen-enabled settings such as Touch AF and Touch Shoot. Other settings include Smile Detection, Buddy Timer, and Group Timer modes which help capture the perfect moment. Also, when the LCD is tilted upwards it automatically activates Eye Detection AF. An addition to this model is a new single-point mode with 49 areas for more precise autofocusing.
Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
Integrated Wi-Fi connectivity permits instant wireless transferring of images to linked mobile devices for direct sharing online. Mobile devices can also be used to embed location data into the photos taken with the X-A3 for geotagging. Additionally, the X-A3 is also compatible with the optional instax SHARE Printer, when using its dedicated app, for on-the-go printing of your favorite snapshots.
XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II Lens
Included with the camera body is the versatile XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II lens; a standard zoom providing a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range to suit working in a wide variety of situations. The all-glass, 12-elements-in-10-groups construction incorporates three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for greater clarity, sharpness, and color fidelity. Additionally, this lens integrates a 3.5-stop-effective optical image stabilization system to compensate for the effects of camera shake to render sharper imagery in difficult lighting conditions. The lens also features seven rounded aperture blades to produce a smooth out-of-focus quality when using selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
