Fujifilms XA1 mirrorless ILC arriving this month with 163megapixel APSC sensor, $600 price

Fujifilm is swelling its retro-tastic line of X-Series cameras with the X-A1, an entry level model for wannabe photojournalists worldwide. The shooter comes with a 16.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS, although be warned that this isn’t the X-Trans sensor that made the X-Pro 1 and X-M1 so alluring — that’s been reserved for the high-end. Instead, you’ll get wireless image transfer, a 3-inch 920k-dot tilting LCD and five film simulation modes. Video-wise, the unit will shoot 1080p clips at 30fps, capturing sound with its built-in stereo microphone. The retail package will come with a f/3.5-5.6 24-76mm equivalent kit lens with optical image stabilization, and will set you back $600 when it lands later this month.
