The X-A1 shares a body with the X-M1 but is based around a 16MP sensor with a conventional, Bayer color filter array, rather than the X-Trans design that's been used elsewhere. The X-A1 retains the 920k dot tilting rear screen and Wi-Fi offered by the X-M1, yet is being launched with an MSRP $200 cheaper than the X-M1 (with kit lens), making it an affordable entry into the Fujifilm interchangeable lens system.

X-A1, superb entry level with output of much more expensive camera
I just got this one and it is a great deal for the money, the kit lens 16-50 is actually pretty solid lens (optically) and has OIS. I also have the X-pro1 and the images are indistinguishable between those two. It is pretty much in the price range of the basic NEX or better M43 cameras, but in my opinion produces premium images (same as xpro1) and it gives you much better kit lens. However the slower auto-focus is the ongoing Fuji issue - it is slower than all the modern sony or ...
Bargain for the Money
Great little camera and with £80 casback!!! For what i shoot (mostly landscape this is an excellent little camera and the kit 16-50 lens is actually pretty good. Doesn't feel as well built as my X10. For a non X-trans sensor im amazed (genuinely). Was going to try it and send it back and get the XE-2, but now i'll keep this and get some primes with the saving over the XE2 and upgrade in the Future.
Uso con grande soddisfazione questa fotocamera da piu' di un mese con ottimi risultati.La risoluzione del jpeg nativo e' davvero impressionante vista a tutto schermo e sicuramente ai livelli delle migliori dslr entry level (a mio giudizio anche meglio).L'obiettivo 16/50 e' molto leggero e tutto sommato lavora bene, anche se a f22 mostra un po' la corda (io fotografo per lo piu' paesaggi) presentando una visibile distorsione ai bordi (ma parliamo di condizioni estreme).Personalmente trovo ...
not expensive but no good either
not expensive but not good either It's a slow men's camera with a useful lens but all technical functions are 3-5 years beyond time. Even Sony Nex-cameras are faster and modern and mFT-Cameras are much ahead and not less sharp. I wouldn't buy it again nor recommend it. It is to slow for me and the colors are not my taste. All other lenses are very expensive. I will buy me a Panasonic LX7 or Sony Nex 6 instead.
Fuji X-A1 or Samsung NX300?
So I'm moving up from my Canon S and these are my two choices; I'll consider something with a viewfinder for my next upgrade. I've read a bunch of reviews and both of these cameras are reported to be quite good, but considering I'll at some point get a nice small prime lens I want to get the right camera before investing in the lens ecosystem. It doesn't bother me that the NX is an older camera or that the X-M1 is only $150 or so more because I like the way both of these look, are priced. I do like that the X's kit zoom is smaller than the NX's kit zoom while having almost he same range. After looking at plenty of X-A1 vs X-M1 discussions, I don't feel that at my level the sensor difference will make too much of a difference although that brown/silver M1 might sway me. I do street shots, around the house low light shots of the dogs, motorcycle trips, and go to dog shows. Our boy is in Westminster this year so I'm upgrading cameras for that trip. I would consider one of the nicely ...
16-50 range is more interesting than 18-55, you can always crop a little from 50, but you cannot "uncrop" from 18. Size and weight between them is about the same, I don't know why you think Fuji is smaller. If you want smaller zoom, look at Panasonic 12-32, or at least 14-42PZ or Sony E 16-50. Samsung will have a small 16-50 soon too, but I don't think it is available with NX300. Continue Reading
I thought the Samsung lens was physically longer when closed. I was considering the 18-55 because it has the iFunction button whereas the 20-50 doesn't. I suppose the "off" size of the zoom lens doesn't matter as I will be getting a small pancake for regular uses. I suppose I'm looking for any compelling, hardware or software, reasons to choose the Fuji or Samsung first. Continue Reading
Do the weight and dimensions quoted in the specifications for the Fujifilm X-A1 include the standard 16-50mm lens?
Cannot choose between x20 and x-a1
I have planned to ca 450-500€ for my new digital camera. I have narrowed my choice down to Fujifilms X20 or X-a1 camera. Both fit my budget and are small and easy to carry around. I am total beginner, therefore am I not going to invest in more lense (in short and medium time), but learning my way. I am tempted by xa1 large sensor and better low light performance. How can you compare x20's 28-112mm zoom lens to xa1's 16-50mm kit lens ? Do I have point to have only one lens on interchangeable camera ? No viewfinder on xa1 is not a problem.
Yes you do have a point choosing an ilc if that has advantages like sensor size you mentioned. The X20 is a point and shoot with a good quality lens. Keep in mind that the focallength 28-112 is 35mm (film format equivalent, aka adjusted for field of view due to sensorsize and lens combined). The 16-50 is not adjusted for FOV, it would on X-A1 give you 24-75mm (eq). So this means that the 16-50 is considerably wider but also shorter at the tele end. For general shooting my opnion is a wider lens to be more versatile (though many novice tend to go for big tele's in the beginning). If you already know what you're about to shoot you can check here if this lives up to your expectations in term of FOV. If possible as always, try before you buy. Continue Reading
All cameras can be point and shoot. The x20 no more or less than a DSLR in that respect. It is a most satisfying camera to use IMO. Very challenging at times. Its low light performance is actually very good and it is my camera of choice for formal evenings out. No idea about the other choice though. But (OP) don't worry if you never change or even remove the lens, the majority of casual snappers with dslr's don't either, but they have a choice. Continue Reading
There is nothing wrong with buying an interchangeable lens camera and using only one lens, if that lens meets your needs. For whatever reason cameras with larger sensors almost always have interchangeable lenses. That's why the Sony RX100 created such a sensation when it came out, a very small camera with a fairly large sensor. Its sensor is still smaller than those of most mirrorless cameras and dslrs, but much larger than most compacts, and the body is quite small. The X20 sensor is somewhat bigger than most compact sensors, though still a lot smaller than that of the RX100. Anyway, what it means is that you have to buy an ilc if you want a really big sensor and a zoom lens. There are several models with big sensors and prime lenses. The two models you're considering are both pretty nice, but the XA-1 will have better image quality overall, especially in low light, and you'll always have the option of buying more lenses later on if you decide you'd find them handy. The ... Continue Reading
