Fujifilm has announced its X-A3 entry-level mirrorless camera. Unlike other X-series cameras, its 24MP sensor uses a traditional Bayer color filter, rather than X-Trans. The standard ISO range is 200-6400, which can expand to 100-25,600 if needed.

The autofocus system offers 49 points in single AF mode and 77 points in the wide/tracking modes, but it lacks on-sensor phase detection like more expensive Fujifilm cameras. Also added is the ability to link metering and AF areas.

The camera has a 3″ LCD that flips upward by 180 degrees, and selfies can be taken using the command dial on the back of the camera, which gives you a firmer grip on the camera. The LCD is touch-enabled and includes the usual bells-and-whistles that come along with it, plus a new ‘touch zoom’ feature.

The X-A3 has many of Fujifilm’s Film Simulation modes, including Pro Neg.Hi, Pro Neg.Std, and Classic Chrome, but lacks the new ACROS mode found on its higher-end models. Full HD video is supported at 60p and 24p. Wi-Fi is also built-in.

The X-A3 will come bundled with the XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II lens in you choice of three colors: silver, brown or pink. It will be available in October at a price of $599.
