Fujifilm  X-A2 Review and Giveaway

Fujifilm X-A2

When I was a little girl I loved taking pictures. My dad gave me my grandfather’s camera and I would run all over our small town taking pictures of random things. I would run out of film so quickly and have to save up my allowance for more film. Now as an adult, we don’t have to worry about film anymore since everything has gone digital. Now even the most beginner photographer can learn how to take amazing pictures with the Fujifilm X-A2. The design of the camera has almost a retro look to it. It reminds me of my grandfather’s camera that I first started taking pictures on.

I am someone that likes to take pictures more than actually being in the picture. So for me I like a camera that gives me everything I need at my fingertips.  I am an amateur when it comes to taking pictures. I just like pictures to look like I know what I am doing.

  • Digital Camera X-A2
  • Rechargeable Battery
  • Battery Charger
  • Interchangeable lens 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II

The Key Features of the Fujifilm X-A2:

  • 3.0″175° tilting LCD Monitor
  • 16.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • Up to 5.6 fps Shooting and ISO 25600
  • Built-in WiFi Connectivity (Makes uploading pictures to your computer a snap!)
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps
  • Q Menu Button and Super i-Flash
  • Eye AF, Auto Macro AF, Multi-Target AF
  • Film Simulation modes and Multiple Exposure


There are so many features on the Fujifilm X-A2 that I enjoy but my favourites are the Red Eye removal (How many pictures have you wished that they didn’t have red eyes in the past?) , the Self Portraits (which was so easy even my kids could do it.) and the Timer Setting. (Now I can be in pictures with my family instead of always just taking pictures.)


Last night we were making Salt Dough Ornaments and then watching Home Alone 2 with some hot chocolate. I figured it would be a great time to capture some of these moments on the Fujifilm X-A2. Since my husband is on the road right now trucking, it helps him to see what we were doing while he was gone and be a part of the memories even though he wasn’t able to be here.


Here was Spencer painting one of his ornaments.  In our house, our lighting isn’t the best for pictures. But with the Fujifilm X-A2, you don’t even notice that our lighting is dull. The pictures of the kids were great. The close ups of their faces were so crisp and clear. We used the flash with the night setting inside and it worked perfectly.

Then we had some fun before the movie started. We used the 10 second timer and took a picture of us before the movie. A quick family picture which we don’t do often enough. (our dog Darby had to get in the picture too!)


Hayley took some selfies with the Fujifilm X-A2. She loved having some fun with it. She’s the Selfie Queen after all.

Today while the kids went to school I took the Fujifilm X-A2 and went around town taking some pictures of the Christmas decorations with the lens hood on using the daylight settings.

I also took a picture of our furbabies:

You can upload your pictures wireless to your smartphone with the Fujifilm camera app. Very simple to do and the app makes it simple. It connected no problem to upload the pictures to my smartphone. This is great if you love to put pictures on your wallpaper on your smartphone.

Fujifilm Photo App

Simply download the App, open it and set the camera to the Playback mode (Where you view the photos you already took.) Then press the fn button on the top and a Wireless Transfer menu will come up on screen. Choose how you want to transfer the images.

  1. Close up and portraits look great! I'm definitely in the market for a good camera and this looks good! Built in WiFi has me basically sold ;)
  2. I love the wireless transfer feature. I haven't had an actual camera that could do that and I still really prefer a solid camera for many pictures.
  3. My favourite feature has to be the wireless transfer, and for me everything else since I have not owned a camera for so long now, everything would be a treat for me!!
  4. Thank you so much for hosting this exciting event, i am entered on behalf of my paranormal investigation team, we need a camera to take on investigations to capture evidence. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and safe travels all through the holiday season everyone.;-)
  5. I absolutely love that I can put the pictures from the camera onto my phone for quick social media sharing and I like that I can put them onto my computer wirelessly too.
  6. Oh my goodness, this is a beauty! Like you, I really love the retro styling. I don't have a mobile phone, so I don't do selfies. I like that I could take them with this, without needing a mobile. Also like the 16MP and built-in Wifi. The camera I'm using now is so basic- I'd looooove to win this - thank you!
  7. I like that it's a digital camera, but has features of a professional type camera. And I really like the tilting viewer.
  8. This would be great. I work in a park and take tons of pictures, but without aa camera they are with my phone, so lower quality.
  9. I love the 175 degree tilting screen. I've never had a camera with that feature so I think It'd be so helpful when on vacation and taking selfies!
  10. This camera is amazing! The shots are incredible and this would be awesome if I got to take pictures of BC's mountains with it :)
  11. This camera is amazing! The panoramic pictures you could take is easily my favourite feature! It would be incredible to take pictures of the BC landscape with! :)
  12. Hi !! I had a hard time choosing but I picked the Full HD 108 op Video Recording. I would Love to take family videos and we just got a puppy this year :) We have had some pretty funny moments with him and our kitties together and I always wish I had a video camera handy. I can think of a million things I would love to take it along for. The other option was the Red Eye corrector. I can make the best family picture terrifying to look at. Thank you for offering this Fantastic Camera !! Merry Christmas :)
  13. I can't choose which feature I like because I like every single one of them. This is an awesome camera that look like it will be user friendly.
  14. I really love the built in Wi-Fi Connectivity! I am always taking my camera everywhere and its a real pain to find my wires and then upload all the pics; plus I travel a lot and being able to upload everything while on the go would be brilliant!
  15. What an amazing contest. This is the time of year that a ton of pictures are taken and this camera looks like it will do an amazing job.
  16. Te feature on the Fujifilm X-A2 that I like most is the built in wifi connectivity, which allows for uploading wirelessly to computer, or printer. This is an ideal feature.
  17. I love the wireless transfer feature, it's such a pain to hunt for cords every time I want to dump my photos on to my laptop!
  18. Fujifilm cameras have always been a product that catches my attention. I am currently seeking out the best Fujifilm camera for me and currently my heart has been leaning towards this one out of all the Fujifilm selections. Unfortunately, I have been unable to pursue my passions for photography and purchase a camera just as of yet, but this camera is absolutely perfect. I love the built in Wifi and the crisp images that the camera captures. Not only does the camera take incredible photos, but the retro look adds to the whole feel of the camera. It is beautiful inside and out!
  19. It is an incredible experience being a paranormal investigator. I have a lot of the investigative tools I need and I provide them to my team..:-) We never ever charge for investigations its all done free of charge to clients. My favourite part about this camera is that it is fuji. I bought my husband 26 years ago a Fuji Film Camera and we took it everywhere with us and the kids for many many many years. When the camera died we had gotten far more than our moneys worth out of it. I am entered to try to win this for the team, as far as I am concerned I think that Fuji makes the very best in Cameras. It is long overdue and would love to win this camera to put it to work for our clients.-:-)
  20. I love the built in wifi connectivity. Great for blog shots and easy sharing. I also like the size of the camera. Nice and compact so makes it very portable.
  21. I love this camera and am torn between many great features. The fact that it is light and easy to travel with makes it so much better then my DSLR. I love that it takes auto macro because I am not a trained photographer but love that close up look of pictures where details seem to pop. Lastly, HELLLLLLLOOOO WIFI!
  22. I love the WiFi feature on this camera, the FujiFilm X A2 is truly a beautiful piece of tech! I'd giggle like a school girl if I won this! Thanks CanadianBasics.com for the opportunity to win! ❄#MerryChristmas & #HappyNewYear to everyone! ❄
