November 3, 2016

I rarely blogged about the event on the day when i got home, but i can't wait to share the information with you all regarding the event this morning. I am looking for new camera, but i am too picky on the specs in the camera, i don't like the photo looks yellowish, i don't like without zoom lens, i don't like too heavy too ugly too big, ok i am too annoying LOL!
I was attending FUJIFILM camera new launching this morning, keep calm all the while until i saw their new camera. 
FUJIFILM Malaysia has launched the FUJIFILM X-A3, the newest addition to FUJIFILM's best selling line of iconic retro-style cameras. As the name suggests, X-A3 is a follow-up to X-A2 and features a retro design which further enhances its appeal and gives a fresh impression of sophisticated photography. Designed with the younger generation in mind and is perfectly suited to taking "self-portraits", selfie lovers will be pleased to X-A3 awesome selfie features! 
Colours available in brown, silver or pink.
The top cover, front plate and top dials of X-A3 are made of aluminum. The newly-developed faux leather has significantly enhanced the overall texture. 
I am so addicted with all vintage/ retro styled camera.
Aww~~~ brown color is soooooo niceeee!
Image Quality
It combines a newly-developed 24 megapixel APS-C sensor (same size used in most DSLR) with FUJIFILM's proprietary color reproduction technology for advanced portraiture, offer outstanding image quality for the selfie fans. The APS-C sensor delivers beautifully smooth bokeh effects for portraiture and macro shots when using a shallow depth of field.
Film Simulation Mode

Offers 11 Film Simulation modes such as the true-to-life colors of PROVIA (standard), the vibrant tones and saturated colors of Velvia (vivid), the soft tones of ASTIA (soft) or the documentary-style tones of CLASSIC CHROME. Monochrome and Sepia modes are also available.

Advanced Filters 
A total of 10 Advanced Filters are available, including the new "Fisheye" and "Cross Screen" as well as Toy Camera, Miniature, Dynamic Tone, Pop Color, Soft Focus, High Key, Low Key and Partial Color.
New Touchscreen
The LCD on the rear uses a touchscreen to enable "Touch AF," "Touch Shoot" and "Touch Zoom," in which you use the pinch-out finger gesture to use a prime lens as if it is a zoom lens.
Selfie & Macro
- For the first time, the X-A3 comes with a 3 inch LCD touchscreen that tilts 180 degrees, helping to maintain 100% visibility, you can view the entire screen for precise composition. 
- Selfies can be taken using the command dial on the back of the camera, which provides a firmer grip on the camera. When taking selfie, you can focus and release the shutter by pressing the vertical command dial you can find directly below your index finger, so minimise camera shake. 
- Eye detection AF automatically focuses on the eyes.
- Portrait Enhancer mode offer three-step adjustments with the new "skin-tone brightening" function so can makes skin look brighter and smoother. 

- Auto Macro function captures objects approx 7cm from lens surface.

Please don't shout out loud when you heard that FUJIFILM X-A3 has new self-timer functions including smile detection, buddy timer and group timer, LOL! How it works? It can be used when the screen is tilted forward and the shutter is automatically triggered when the subjects smiles, or when 2 or more people come into frame. 
So what is the next is share to social media la! Unlike X-A2 without wireless remote, this X-A3 has a built-in WiFi capability to
- Connect to the Instax SHARE printer for instant printing

The FUJIFILM X-A3 come with standard zoom lens XC16-50mm, the len's weight is just 195g, so not to worries it might be stone in your bag.

I wish to bring this beautiful baby go home, since it fulfilled all the features i want in a small camera (perfect selfie, nice image quality, good macro feature and wi-fi). But the price is slightly out of my budget, i have to consider first. 
May be i go pick a flower , tear out petals and ask * buy or not buy? buy or not buy?* LOL!
