GENERAL

The X-A5 was introduced by Fujifilm in February 2018. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.

Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.

SENSOR

The X-A5 features a CMOS sensor in APS-C size that has an area of approximately 24 x 16 mm² (0.93" x 0.62").

This infographic compares the X-A5's sensor to other common formats:

Infographic: X-A5 comparing sensor sizes

(The 1-Euro coin used for scale has a diameter of 23.25mm, slightly smaller than a US quarter.)

The X-A5's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 24 megapixel. The resolution is above average and will be sufficient for the foreseeable future. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.

The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

The X-A5 features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.

LENS

All compatible X-Bajonett lenses can be mounted to the X-A5.

Currently, approximately more than 25 X-Bajonett lenses are available, not counting lenses by third-party manufacturers. Further lenses can be connected via suitable adapters.

VIEWFINDER

The X-A5 does not come with a built-in viewfinder. The camera's display is used to compose the photo. That can be cumbersome in broad daylight.

SHUTTER

The X-A5's shutter speeds range from 1/4000s to 30s.

Max. shutter speed1/4000s
Min. shutter speed30s
SENSITIVITY

The X-A5's sensitivity goes from 200 ISO und 12800 ISO, a very useful and practical range.

Additionally, the Fujifilm's sensitivity can be boosted to 51200. However, ISO boosting will almost always lead to an increase in noise.

METERING

The X-A5 supports all common metering modes.

The Fujifilm will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The X-A5's auto focus processor uses 91 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).

Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.

TypePhase Detection, Contrast Detection

FLASH

The X-A5 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 4m (13 ft.). That's on the low end and will only work for very close subjects.

A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Fujifilm's hotshoe. Very useful for indirect flashes or for trigggering remote flashes.

DISPLAY
X-A5 display and touch screen

The X-A5 features a monitor with a diagonal of 76.00mm (3.0 in.) and a resolution of c. 1.04 megapixel. That's about average.

The camera's display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.

The X-A5's monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don't work when wearing gloves.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the X-A5, the highest supported resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixel, in other words Full HD Video. 4K videos are not supported by the Fujifilm.

The camera features a connector for an external microphone, a neccessity for good video sound. A built-in mike will record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is mostly not desired. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS

The X-A5 has Wifi connectivity already built-in. Use Wifi to transfer images to a smartphone or computer and to remote control the camera.

Another option to transfer images to the smartphone is Bluetooth (Note: Bluetooth connections will not always transmit images or videos with full resolution.)

In situations where wireless won't work reliably, a wired connection can be used.

Connect the Fujifilm to a monitor or TV set over HDMI.

The Fujifilm connects to your PC over USB 2.0.

What memory cards can be used with the Fujifilm X-A5?

The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.

With an average image size of 12 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 2670 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Fujifilm X-A5:

The X-A5 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom. However, with Wifi built-in, location data can also be added via a connected smartphone.

The X-A5 doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. That would have been a plus when using legacy zooms or tele lenses without stabilizer.

A nice addition is the Fujifilm's electronic level. The camera displays an indicator on the monitor that makes it super-easy to level the camera horizontally, very useful when doing architectural photography.

The camera has a built-in function to facilitate creating panoramas: While panning the Fujifilm over the scene, the camera takes a sequence of images which are then automatically assembled to form a panorama.

If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.

The X-A5 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Fujifilm X-A5 works with a NP-W126S LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is a generous 450 shots. Usually enough for a full day or more.

The battery can be charged over USB while in camera. Very useful, especially on vacation when most people bring a USB charger for their smartphone anyway.

DIMENSIONS

The Fujifilm X-A5's dimensions are 116.9 x 67.7 x 40.4mm³. (4.6" x 2.7" x 1.6"). That's the body only, without lens. The camera's weight is a reasonable 360 grams (11.6 oz.). Add to this the weight of the lens.

SIZE COMPARISON

To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).
