Fujifilm has launched a new mirrorless camera for beginners called the X-A7. This is the follow-up to the X-A5, which launched last year and comes with a host of new improvements.

There's a new Bright Mode added to the Advanced SR Auto function, which lets the camera use HDR and tweak other parameters, for a brighter and more vivid image.
