We have seen some great deals on the Fujifilm X-A5, which was launched almost two years ago at the start of 2018. And now its successor, the Fujifilm X-A7, has reached the shopts - promising a lot more in terms of features than its predecessor.

The basics remain the same. This is a simple mirrorless model with no eyelevel viewfinder, and using a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor. And thanks again to its flip-out LCD screen, is going to particularly appeal to those who love selfies, or who are serious vloggers.
