The X-A5 offers several functions and filters that aim to simplify your life while shooting. 4K Burst Function allows you to quickly produce stills at 15 fps, so you can select the best frame, while a Portrait Enhancer Mode helps ensure that skin tones are rendered in a pleasing way. A Multi Focus Mode is available for focus stacking, automatically merging 4K images and adjusting the required depth of field for the best result. Finally, seventeen advanced filters and eleven film simulation filters are offered to fit a variety of situations, including fog removal and HDR photography.
Operation is made easy thanks to the camera’s tilting 3″ LCD touchscreen, which comes with a notable 1040k-dot resolution and revamped GUI for more intuitive use. Once the screen is turned 180 degrees for taking selfies, the camera’s rear command dial automatically switches functions to allow for easy control of the zoom and shutter release. The rotation also automatically activates an eye detection AF function, which helps ensure that the subject’s face is sharply in focus. Other features of the X-A5 include a maximum ISO sensitivity of 12,800, up to 450 pictures per charge, and Bluetooth connectivity for transferring files to a smartphone, tablet, or directly to your instax SP-3 printer.
