Fujifilm X-A7 images leak out, showing huge LCD and AF lever

Images of a seemingly mirrorless Fujifilm X-A7 camera have leaked.

The most recent addition to the series was the Fujifilm X-A5, which was announced in early 2018. There are no rumors about the new model, but we expect to announce a Fujifilm X-Pro3 Sometime soon – these new images, released by the Japanese rumored Web site Nokishita, show a number of changes from the X- A5.

The biggest difference is the back side, dominated by an LCD screen that not only seems to be bigger than its predecessor, but is also 16: 9 aspect ratio.

Earlier models had a more standard 3: 2 display, suggesting that videography is paramount here. Hopefully, this also means that 4K video recording at frame rates is above the disappointing limit of 15 frames per second of the X-A5.

The LCD screen can also be adjusted from the side to the front and not up and down as in the previous models. Pictures also show that the camera is the first person in the line to open the menu box and instead use the AF lever, which is common on the upper-range X-Series models, which simplifies AF metering and menu navigation.

Other changes in the design of the X-A5 show that the power regulator is a button and not the collar that surrounds the trigger while the function button on the top plate has also been dropped.

While the X-A5 has two rear-adjustable knobs, the X-A7 seems to have a more reasonable setting for the front and rear adjusters. However, the built-in flash seems to have been retained.

The X-A line from Fujifilm forms the basis of the X series of mirrorless cameras, over which the models X-T, X-Pro and X-H are positioned.

Although these models are not quite as advanced, we've found that the X-A1, X-A2, X-A3, X-A10 and the latest X-A5 are already perfect for these models looking for mirrorless Recordings on a small budget.

It looks like the new camera is bundled with the same XC 15-45mm 1: 3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens as the X-A5. Although images appear to be in a different brown finish, they seem to be half as big-hearty Photoshop counterfeits, given the similarity of the bodies with the X-A5.

In other words, it is likely that the new model will be available in more than just the black version shown here – though details we have to patiently wait for when we see it or how much it will cost.
