Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras have always sat slightly above entry-level in terms of price, with the current X-A2 fetching about $550 with a lens, in a market where you can get a Sony Alpha 5000 for around $450 or an Olympus PEN E-PL6 for just $300, lens included.

The newest entry-level X camera, the X-A3, doesn’t cut the price, but it does offer technical improvements over the previous iteration. The image sensor resolution has increased from 16MP to 24MP. Unlike other Fujifilm cameras, the sensor isn’t an X-Trans design. Rather, the X-A3 uses a traditional Bayer color filter array, which is an appealing option for photographers who may not like the look of X-Trans images.

Also improved is the autofocus system. The X-A3 still uses a contrast-based focus system, but it now supports 49 selectable points, as well as a wide mode that tracks subjects across the frame, expanding the number of focus points to 77. You can tune the body to prioritize release or focus confirmation, giving you the option to ensure that the X-A3 shoots as fast as it can (at about 2.5fps) or that it waits for a focus lock to fire a shot.

The rear LCD can face all the way forward for selfies, and the camera will automatically attempt to focus on your eyes when the screen is flipped forward. The LCD itself is a touch screen, 3 inches in size with a 920k-dot resolution. You can tap it to set focus or to take a picture, and pinch it to digitally zoom in or out.

You can share your selfies easily, transferring them to your phone or tablet via Wi-Fi, and if you want them to have a film-like look, you can enable one of the X-A3’s film simulation modes, avoiding the need to use Instagram filters. In addition to being able to shoot in Provia, Astia, or Classic Chrome mode, you can enable filters to give your photos fish-eye, toy camera, miniature, pop art, or soft focus looks, among others.

The X-A3 supports Raw and JPG image capture, with ISO 200 through 25600 supported, and the ability to convert Raw images to JPG in-camera. It can also record video at up to 1080p60 quality, with the more standard 30fps and 24fps shooting rates also supported.

The X-A3 will ship in October. You can have it in your choice of silver, brown, or pink, but be prepared to pay a premium for an entry-level model—it is priced at $599.95. That MSRP does include the XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II lens. Fujifilm is not selling the X-A3 as a body only.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm F2 R WR

In addition to the new camera, Fujifilm is expanding its X lens lineup. The newest addition, the Fujinon XF 23mm F2 R WR is a compact, low-cost, weather-sealed option for photographers who don’t need the more ambitious f/1.4 aperture offered by the Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R. It’s smaller (2 by 2.4 inches HD) and lighter (6.6 ounces) than the 23mm F1.4 (2.8 by 2.5 inches, 10.6 ounces), and can also focus a bit closer—to 8.7 inches instead of 11 inches.

The lens promises to deliver fast autofocus—in just 0.05 seconds when paired with the X-Pro2. It’s similar in look and feel to the slightly tighter XF 35mm F2 R WR, and can even use the same add-on lens hood. But despite being svelte and less expensive than some other lenses in the Fuji library, it maintains a metal barrel, physical aperture control ring, and a 9-blade aperture.

The XF 23mm F2 R WR will ship in September. It’s available in black only and is priced at $449.95, just about half the retail price of its f/1.4 sibling.
