September 13, 2019

FUJIFILM has just announced the launch of the X-A7 to join its family of mirrorless digital cameras. The camera is said to come standard with a versatile kit lens, the popular XC15-45mm F3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens.

The FUJIFILM X-A7 is the successor to the FUJIFILM X-A5. The X-A7 is lightweight, weighing in at only 320 g without the kit lens. When you include the lens it weighs 455 g. With such a small body the X-A7 boasts outstanding image quality with a new 24.2MP imaging sensor, it has fast autofocus, quick face detection and incredibly its able to produce stills at 6 FPS. The X-A7 offers a 3.5 inch, 16:9 LCD flip-out screen that enables the user to capture the perfect image or video on the go.


Appealing to all skill levels the X-A7 allows the user to focus on capturing the moments while the camera does the rest. From enhanced face detection and auto focus make it easy to focus. Already this sounds like a traveler or YouTubers dream. Having one camera that’s capable of 4K 30P footage with a beautiful bokeh and capable of shooting great images using its 24.2MP imaging sensor. Seems like FUJIFILM may have a winner for content creators like myself.

First Impressions: MINI John Cooper Works Clubman and Countryman
I still remember the first time I got in the seat of the MINI. It was a friends’ and I thought oh boy this car is not as MINI as the first MINI. I took it for a spin and right there is when I knew why she had bought the car. In the car you would sit low and the drive was very reminiscent of a Go-Cart. It was different and I loved it.
