Fujifilm announces the selfie-focused Fujifilm X-A2

The Fujifilm X-A2 can be seen as a minor update to the X-A1, but if you like to appear in your own photos, the changes could make all the difference. Features staying the same include a 16-megapixel APS-C (23.6 x 15.6 mm) CMOS sensor, a native ISO range of 200 to 6400 which can be extended as high as 25600, and a maximum burst speed of 5.6 fps. Full HD 1080p video recording is also possible at 30 fps and built-in Wi-Fi is included for easy sharing and remote shooting.

The big change is the tilting LCD, which still measures 3-inches with 920k dots, but can now be tilted up to 175 degrees upwards for selfie-friendly shooting. The monitor on the A1 had a more limited range. When fully tilted, the X-A2 automatically kicks into a new Eye Detection AF mode, which as the name suggests, automatically focuses on the eyes of a subject. Meanwhile, a new Portrait Enhancer mode can be used to produce more flattering portraits.
