INTRODUCING THE FUJIFILM X-A10: THE COMPACT LIGHTWEIGHT AND STYLISH MIRRORLESS DIGITAL CAMERA
X-A10 delivers the X Series’ premium image quality in any shooting conditions
with ease, making it the ideal choice for a first interchangeable lens camera
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has
announced that it will launch the mirrorless digital camera, the FUJIFILM
X-A10; a new addition to the X Series range of cameras that deliver
outstanding picture quality.
Despite its compact and lightweight design, the X-A10
combines a 16.3 megapixel sensor with the company’s colour-reproduction
technology, refined over more than 80 years, to deliver the premium image
quality synonymous to the X Series with ease.
This makes the X-A10 an ideal first interchangeable lens camera.
a 16.3 megapixel sensor and Fujifilm’s colour-reproduction technology, refined
over more than 80 years, to deliver premium picture quality - The X-A10 combines a 16.3 megapixel APS-C sensor with the image
processing engine that achieves Fujifilm’s excellent photo quality. Sharp
FUJINON lenses that boast ultimate image resolution, and the proprietary colour-reproduction technology, refined over more than 80
years, allows users to capture premium quality images in any shooting
conditions. Fujifilm is particularly
renowned for accurately reproducing skin tones, and the X-A10 is built with
this advanced skin tone reproduction capability, allowing you to produce
slide-and-tilt LCD with 100% visibility for facilitating “self-portraits” - The rear LCD employs the slide-and-tilt mechanism so that even when it
is tilted by 180 degrees, the LCD is not blocked by the camera, allowing for
100% visibility. The grip is shaped to
accommodate both normal shooting and self-portraits. When taking a self-portrait, you can focus
and release the shutter by pressing the vertical command dial found directly
below your index finger to minimise camera shake. Rotating the tilting LCD upward by 180
degrees activates the Eye Detection AF to automatically adjust the focus on the
subject’s eyes. The X-A10 also features
the Portrait Enhancer mode for natural and beautiful skin-tone reproduction.
and lightweight camera body with retro design and intuitive operability - The compact and lightweight X-A10 sports a retro design. The use of two
Command Dials means you only need a thumb to quickly adjust aperture, shutter
speed and exposure settings. Frequently
used functions such as white balance, continuous shooting and the self-timer
can be assigned to standalone function buttons, eliminating the need to go
through the Menu screens to change settings.
FUJIFILM X-A2’s popular performance features - Its
energy-efficient design means the X-A10 is capable of shooting approx. 410 frames
on a single battery charge. When fitted
with the standard zoom kit lens “XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II,” the camera offers
the class-leading minimum working distance of approx. 7cm from the front edge
of the lens, allowing close-up macro photography.
-Outstanding image quality, made possible by the newly-developed 16.3
megapixel image sensor
battery life of approx. 410 frames per charge
-Class-leading minimum working distance
-Super Intelligent Flash
-Full HD video
-Versatile shooting functions including the electronic shutter with the
maximum speed of 1/32000 sec

as well as iPhones and iPads
AVAILABILITY:-FUJIFILM X-A10 with XC16-50mmF3.5-5.6 OIS II kit will be available from January 2017.

CHRISTMAS GIFT: POLAROIDS NEXT GENERATION INSTANT DIGITAL CAMERA - THE NEW POLAROID SNAP TOUCH
With a 3.5" LCD
Touchscreen Display and App-Driven Creative Control - Polaroid Once Again
Redefines Sharing for the Digital Age with the New Polaroid Snap Touch
photography has been at the heart of the Polaroid brand for
nearly 80 years, and today it is reimagined with the Polaroid Snap
Touch instant digital camera. With the Polaroid Snap Touch,
Polaroid is able to offer the traditional instant photography
experience it's known for with new features specifically aimed at today's
digital user. The Polaroid Snap Touch follows in the
footsteps of the highly successful first generation Polaroid
Print and Share - Taking the Polaroid Snap to
the next level, the new Polaroid Snap Touch incorporates a
wide range of updated features for an enhanced instant experience. Updates
include the addition of a 3.5" LCD touchscreen for framing shots and
navigating the camera's menu, a new and improved 13 megapixel CMOS sensor for
higher-quality images as well as 1080p full HD video recording capability. All
images and video are stored on a micro SD card (up to 128GB) to allow for
sharing later. Integrated within
the Polaroid Snap Touch is a printer which uses ZINK® Zero Ink
Printing Technology. This gives consumers the ability to capture and instantly
print full-color, 2x3" photographs, all at a significantly lower cost than
traditional instant film prints. Of course the new Polaroid Snap
Touch is ideal for today's selfie shooters thanks to a self-timer and
the addition of a fun selfie mirror that ensures the user is framed perfectly
in the shot. Additionally, the instant digital camera offers three color
modes—black and white, color, and vintage sepia—with the option to print with
or without the iconic Polaroid Classic Border Logo.
Enabled for Even More Versatility - Thanks to Bluetooth
connectivity and integration with the Polaroid Print App, users
are no longer limited to just printing photos captured by the camera itself.
Using Bluetooth and the app, users can now pair the Polaroid Snap
Touch with other devices such as smartphones and tablets to transform
the device into an instant photoprinter. The app, available free for iOS and
Android, will also give users the ability to edit and enhance images saved on
other mobile devices using a number of creative filters, digital stickers,
effects and controls, and then print via the Polaroid Snap Touch.
Exploring the Polaroid Print App allows users to unlock
trophies and other fun hidden features. No matter what device their images are
taken with, they'll be able to share the fun with their own creative flair.
Snap Touch was designed in partnership with renowned design firm,
Ammunition, the studio that was also behind the Polaroid Zip instant
photoprinter and Polaroid Cube and Polaroid
Cube+ lifestyle action cameras. With the Polaroid Snap family
of instant digital cameras, Ammunition created a sense of
continuity between classic Polaroid cameras and current Polaroid products.
Led by industrial designer Robert Brunner, Ammunition is the design studio
behind award-winning consumer brands including Adobe, Beats by Dre, Square,
Lyft, and Williams-Sonoma.
Zero Ink® Printing - Also debuting at Photokina is the Polaroid rainbow
border 2x3" premium ZINK Paper®.
The camera's ZINK-enabled printer uses heat to activate and colorize cyan,
yellow and magenta dye crystals embedded in the paper. The result is
full-color, high quality, long-lasting and smudge-proof images without ink
cartridges, ribbons or toner. The latest version of ZINK Paper features five
fun, brightly colored borders reminiscent of the familiar white Polaroid
Classic Border Logo the brand is famous for. The colored border will
automatically appear around the image after a photo is printed. In addition to
the new Polaroid Snap Touch, the Polaroid rainbow
border 2x3" premium ZINK Paper is compatible with the first
generation Polaroid Snap and Polaroid Zip instant
2x3" photos print in just under a minute so consumers can instantly share
the photo with their friends and family. Additionally, ZINK Paper is adhesive
backed so the photo can be used as a sticker as well.
Snap Touch’ Instant Digital Camera - is now available for
