Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The Fuji X-A1 Compact System Camera with XC 16-50 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens is a compact way to enjoy photography, with the added flexibility of being able to change lenses.

DSLR-like quality

Despite its slim dimensions, the Fuji X-A1 delivers outstanding image quality via its 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor.

Capture pin-sharp photographs rich in tonal expression and high in detail. The camera offers a broad and flexible dynamic range, from ISO200 to 6400 at the standard sensitivity setting and up to ISO100, 12800 and 25600 on the extended sensitivity setting.

The included 15 – 60 mm lens offers broad performance capabilities, allowing you to shoot intimate portraits defined by lovely bokeh as well as great action and scenery shots. Explore the range of compatible Fuji lenses to expand your artistic palette. You can also use a new 1:1 “square” aspect ratio in addition to 3:2 and 16:9 to create new effects.

Photographic options

The Fuji X-A1 Compact Camera puts powerful photography in your hands. A simple one-handed design places all dials and buttons on the right of the screen for easy, direct control at your fingertips.

Flick through the various modes on offer using the rotatable Mode Dial and quickly choose a setting that suits your scene.

Instantly adjust aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation using the twin command dials located on the upper control deck. They're ergonomically positioned, making it a smoothly intuitive process to explore the range of imaging options available.

Explore new horizons

Experiment with bokeh, use brightness creatively and begin to master all manner of photographic effects and techniques with these simple controls. There's also an Exposure Compensation control placed by your thumb so you can easily lighten or darken your shots within a range of ±2EV.

Use Focus Point Zoom to hone in on the focal point of a captured image to check how accurate your focusing has been, whether there's any blur or other imperfections related to subject or camera motion.

The shooting menu offers a Framing Guideline with a choice of GRID9, GRID24 and HD FRAMING to achieve perfect compositions. It's especially practical for subjects arranged along a diagonal or for other tricky perspective-related challenges.

Take a closer look

Use the bright 3” colour LCD (16:9 aspect ratio) screen to view shots you've just taken and scroll through the user-friendly menus. This high-resolution 920,000-dot monitor us easy to see even in outdoor glare thanks to its built-in Sunlight Mode.

The screen can be tilted up or down from a high 85° angle to a low 90° angle, enabling you to stretch your arms up to frame and shoot high-angle scenes over a crowd or obstruction – or you can hold it low to achieve unique ground-up perspectives.

You'll be coming up with your own creative uses for this angled monitor in no time, and with 30% more display area, it allows you to confirm every detail of your subject before you release the shutter.

Check those photo conditions

The Fuji X-A1 Compact System Camera gives you pre-shooting options to make sure you know what's being captured in-camera. Use the built-in histogram display to get at-a-glance information on brightness levels so you can choose the right exposure setting for better photos.

Once you've taken a shot, there's an array of great playback functions available. These include Shooting Data display to check what the settings were for each image.

One-touch buttons

Open a world of accessibility options at the touch of a button with the Fuji X-A1 System Camera. The WiFi button allows you to play back and choose any shots you want to transfer to a smartphone or tablet.

Quickly get to those most-used functions by assigning any of the following controls to one-touch buttons so your overall experience becomes smoother and more effective - Preview Depth Of Field , ISO (Default Setting), Self-Timer, Image Size, Image Quality, Dynamic Range, Film Simulation, Photometry, Ae Af Lock, Instant Af, Focus Mode, Face Detection, Location Info Search, Movie and RAW.

Videos can also be recorded in Full HD at the press of a button, and there's a Quick Menu button provided so that you can skip directly to a list display of ISO sensitivity settings such as White Balance, Film Simulation and other common settings.

Camera memory and protection

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

Step out in style and achieve your photographic potential with the agile and powerful Fuji X-A1 Compact System Camera with XC 16-50 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens.
