With stylish retro looks and loads of great creative features, the mirrorless X-A5 puts exemplary Fuji picture quality in your palm. Its 180° tilting screen is designed to ensure a superior selfie, while it also captures breathtaking panoramas and records movies in simply stunning 4K. Explore your artistic side with a host of filters and shooting modes, and share your creations easily with built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Manual dials and touch screen functions make it a breeze to operate, and it's packed with special tech to make sure your pictures and your self-portraits always look their brilliant best.

Fabulous Fuji Picture Quality
With 24 megapixels of super-fine detail, images are packed with precision and vivid colour, so you get Fujinon's premium picture quality in any shooting condition.17 Advanced Filters are available to add an artistic touch to your shots including Fog Remove to add clarity and space to landscapes and Cross Screen to make illuminated scenes come alive with sparkles. The pop-up flash supports the Super Intelligent Flash system which automatically adjusts to light the scene in the most appropriate way. Focus as close as 5cm for striking macro shots, or shoot spectacular movie footage in crystal-clear 4K UHD resolution.

Superior Selfies
The rear LCD monitor tilts up to a full 180°, making the X-A5 perfect for selfies. Eye Detection AF is engaged when you position it like this, whereby it focuses on the eyes automatically for better quality but simple self portraits. And Portrait Enhancer mode improves and illuminates skin tone so you and your subjects always look fabulous.

Double Lens Kit
It’s supplied with two lenses for maximum versatility. The XC 15-45mm OIS Lens is the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens that's compatible with X Series cameras, and is ideal for all photography styles, from perfect portraits to lush landscapes. The XC 50-230mm OIS Lens is a telephoto zoom lens, ideal for capturing your subject from afar. Its wide zoom range starts at 76mm and goes to 350mm (35mm equivalent), covering portrait-length to telephoto perspectives. Optical image stabilisation on both lenses keeps your shots sharp and blur-free.

Retro Styles
With Film Simulation, you can choose from classic Fujifilm photo styles, and give your pictures varied colour and tone to suit the subject, just like pros did with film. There's standard PROVIA, vivid Velvia, and ASTIA with its true-to-life skin tones, two chrome expressions (Classic and Mono), as well as Sepia.

Retro Chic
Compact and lightweight, the X-A5 sports super-chic retro design with shooting mode and exposure dials for satisfying manual operation. Or use the touch rear screen which offers such easy-to-use functions as touch autofocus, touch zoom and touch shoot.

Smart Phone Control & Easy Sharing
With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity it's simple to connect and send photos straight to your smart phone, tablet or PC. And with the dedicated "Fujifilm Camera Remote" app, you can focus and trigger the camera release from your phone or tablet, and even adjust the focus and control settings like shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and ISO sensitivity.

The image stabilisation on this camera is Lens Only.

Silly price you can sell both lenses for £300


And then what?, a camera without a lens.

Looked good until I saw 15p 4k. Bit of a low frame rate.


To be fair this is the only sub-£400 APS-C camera available with any 4K recording as far as I'm aware, It's crap but video has never been a big focus for Fuji at the low end. I'm pretty sure they just tested to see what they could get out of the processor when putting this camera together and then just threw it in for the sake of it. Panasonic and Olympus have true 4K capable M43 options at around this price with a kit lens, but they're worse for stills, so it's all down to priorities.

Now how does this compare to Panasonic lumix bridge fz82eb


Most bridge cameras are essentially bog standard compacts with tiny sensors and massive zoom lenses stuck to the front, limited manual controls and DSLR styling. This is a "proper" camera with a much larger sensor format and will deliver vastly better image quality. Bridge cameras win on flexibility thanks to their enormous zoom ranges, but image quality will not be much of a step up from a high end smartphone at the best of times and get worse as you move through to the extremes of the zoom range. By contrast this Fuji cannot get anywhere near as much reach, the telephoto lens bundled here gets the same reach as the Panasonic camera gets at 17.5x zoom, so not quite a third, but that's still a lot of range and image quality will be much better.

Youd be lucky to get 300, from what ive sold your going to get between 80-100 for the short lens and 100-130 for the long.
Id expect 200 for both. Although even at that it leaves the body at £150 which is incredibly cheap.

But as anything depends on the usage, if a wide aperture isnt required (e.g going abroad or static subjects) these are fine and its a super lightweight kit.

No, the kit lenses are not poor. Granted, the bodies and lens mount are made of plastic, but their output is excellent.
Super deal OP 🌞

Assuming you get the £300 after fees and paypal, not convinced myself. I have a cupboard full of stuff that you should be able to make money on, not always the case especially with phones and cameras. Realistically, a couple of hundred quid for the lenses and then you would need to get £150 plus for the body to draw even.

I bought it so I could do this. I’ve already got Fuji glass but I wanted a second body with a front facing screen.
You won’t quite sell the lenses for £300 though. Probably £200-£250.

I understand your reasons, I would do this sort of thing myself if I wanted either the lens or body. I must admit I no longer own a camera but use my smartphone, I appreciate the image quality is not as good but just so easy now to take a picture and not have to carry camera gear around.
Good price. Tempting.
4k@15 FPS isn't really usable.

The x-t100 is £349 and offers 4k video (badly) and a viewfinder.

Ah I didn't realise it had come that low, but yeah, the same 4K 15fps recording mode. In that case it's a judgement call between an extra lens or a viewfinder.

I got it to test, was happy and returned. Then got the Fuji refurb one for £270 and the 27mm pancake for £100 from eglobal so £370 all in for the body and 2 lenses.
Viewfinder was the big attraction for me.
I'm on the lookout for a camera for my daughters GCSE photography. Do people think this is the sort of thing I should be going for?

Any suggestions appreciated
You all seem like knowledgeable people! I'm looking for a compact camera for travel, something which would fit in a (big jacket) pocket.

Would require SLR-type settings to fiddle with and ideally a hotshoe. I have no desire for video, just compact and versatile.

I have two standard Canon kit lenses and a flashgun, but nothing pocketable.

Would this fit the bill? Or would I be better off with an older Canon G(12?)-series?
Or a Sony with mental zoom lenses?
Thanks.
Very good comments until I listened to some reviews videos on YouTube 👎🏼

Ideally one with a viewfinder but the rear screen on this would allow the exposure to be previewed. Or maybe a cheap Nikon or Canon DSLR. This deal is good for the range that two lenses will provide.
Was concidering this till I saw the 4K frame rate comments. I want to upgrade from my iPhone XR for shooting video, would this be a great deal better do you guys think?

I'd suggest a used DSLR from a reputable seller like MPB. If she's studying photography rather than just taking snapshots she'll get more out of a DSLR. Something like a Canon EOD550d or later with a decent lens would be well under £200. Standard kit lenses are fine, regardless of what the kit bores would have you believe.

If a person buys a camera and lens or lenses, then to me that means they should in theory want a camera and the lens, otherwise they would have brought the body or the lens separate, do you understand that?, as a couple of people have pointed out they wanted to sell the lenses because they already have a lens they wanted to use or wanted to sell both lenses to fund another, do you understand that as well. Is your comment supposed to be clever?, its a bit like me buying a car and saying I am going to sell the engine, you would not have known I had another different engine, or intended to fit a bigger engine unless I had explained like the people on here have done.

Not trying to be clever at all so perhaps go easy on the condescension. Perhaps you should read your original comment, because you did not question why someone why would buy a camera and a lens if they don't need the lens. All you questioned was why someone would want a camera without a lens: "And then what?, a camera without a lens".

Or a bit like buying a camera battery, as in the example I gave. On a deal for a camera battery, would you question why someone would need a battery without a camera? I'm not quite sure why you think people have to justify themselves to you.

Worth looking at the Canon M-100 which can be got at decent prices now (200 has come out)
I used that kicking about Italy last summer and it's ideal for travel. Fairly small, plenty settings for the more hands on photographer, and with a pancake lens really small. Can also add an adaptor to get use out of your canon lenses.
Only reason I changed was I wanted back to a evf .

I would suggest too a used dslr but with at least one prime, the 50/1.8 usually its the most affordable lens in every system, and will go a long way.
Very good price. Really like the retro-chic style, though not quite so much the colour. One man's meat is another man's poison of course. Was seriously tempted but the lack of an EVF and the slow 4K fps already mentioned by others is also a big miss for me, despite the price.

Perfect for timelapse, especially if the shutter goes to 1/15
Fantastic deal, voted hot.
Not for me as I like a viewfinder.
50-230 does good close up too.
Owned the 50-230 twice and it’s a good lens.
