★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: The Fujifilm X-A5 succeeds the Fujifilm X-A3 that was released towards the end of 2016 as the entry point to Fujifilm's X-series mirrorless range.

  • Generously featured for the price
  • Stylish and easy to use
  • Good variety of film simulation modes

Fujifilm X-A5 review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The Fujifilm X-A5 isn't really designed for experienced photographers, but rather for Instagramers, lifestyle photographers and ‘life-loggers' who want a step up in quality and features from a smartphone – and the X-A5 certainly delivers on that front.
Pros: 
  • Great selfie mode with Eye AF
  • Excellent image quality
  • Sharp
  • clear shots even in poor light
  • Fujifilm's Film Simulation modes
  • Effective dynamic range expansion
Cons: 
  • 4K video at 15fps – what's the point
  • Adequate but unexceptional autofocus
  • No viewfinder
  • Can be tricky to hold for one-handed selfies
  • Sluggish zoom control on 15-45mm kit lens

Fujifilm X-A5

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: The new Fujifilm X-A5 replaces the 18-month-old Fujifilm X-A3, which used to be Fuji's entry-level X-Series camera until the X-A10 was launched. For consistency, we'll maintain the X-A5 as an entry-level camera. So what is new 18-months on Not as much as we would hope.

Fujifilm X-A5 + 15-45/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I spent a ridiculous amount of time on the DPR studio scene comparison tool and happened to notice that the X-A5, for some reason, seemed to have an unusually sharp image along with very low noise at around 1600 or so.

Fujifilm X-A5

★★★★ 4.4
Verdict: The X-A5 is a nice little snapshooters' camera that provides above-average resolution for stills capture across a decent range of ISO settings. The flip-up monitor works well for 'selfies' and the touch screen is easy to use, although recording movies can become a point-and-pray exercise in bright...

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: by William Brawley | Posted 07/03/2018 Although Fujifilm makes some expensive X Series cameras, it hasn't forgotten about the entry-level or budget-conscious out there. Coming in right at $600 with a kit lens, the Fujifilm X-A5 is one of Fuji's most affordable X Series mirrorless cameras.

Fujifilm X-A5 Review: Mirrorless Camera Comes Up Short

★★★★★ 2.5
Verdict: With this camera's clunky, somewhat-dated menu system, slightly bulky camera-body design (at least with the kit lens), lackluster video features and inconsistent autofocus, it's hard to recommend the X-A5, even though it costs a bit less than most mirrorless models.
Pros: 
  • Takes good photos
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Includes a built-in flash and hot shoe
  • 3x optical power zoom
  • Easy-to-use mobile app
Cons: 
  • Controls and settings should be better organized
  • Touch-screen LCD doesn't swing out to side
  • No electronic viewfinder
  • Shoots 4K video at just 15 fps
  • Sluggish autofocus in low light
  • Bulkier than others (with kit lens

Decent light weight, compact camera for travel/vloging.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: For someone that comes from a cell phone, the XA5 will be a good first camera. For someone who is more use to the performance of a DSLR, higher end mirrorless, the XA5 will be a disappointment. Image quality is good in good light but not stellar and does not blow me away.
