Fujifilm launched Thursday a new low-priced mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a newly designed APS-C 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and the ability to shoot video at up to 1080/60p resolution.
The X-A3 will hit retail shelves bundled with a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II kit lens in October at a $599.95 suggested retail.
It will be optimized for selfie lovers, with a flip-up LCD screen that rotates 180 degrees, a smile detection feature, skin-tone improvements, ergonomic grip, vertical command dial, Eye Detection AF, and Portrait Enhancer mode.

Key features include a 77-point autofocus system with 49 points available in “Single Point” mode.
The camera comes equipped with wireless communications functionality to enable remote shooting from smartphones and tablet devices.
Other features include new film-simulation effects including PRO Neg.Hi and PRO Neg.Std, giving the camera a total of 11 film effect options.
The camera can shoot up to 410 frames per charge, and, when using the bundled XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II lens, it can focus on a subject from as close as 7cm from the front edge of the lens for macro capability.
The Fujifilm X-A3 will be available in a “retro” body design in a choice of silver, brown, or pink body colors. It takes SDXC memory cards and includes a built-in pop-up flash.
Fujifilm also added a new X series camera lens in the XF 23mm f2 WR, which will carry a $449 suggested retail price when it goes on sale this month. Features include a weather resistant construction, compact design and fast focusing mechanism.
