Able to rotate 180-degrees, even when taking selfies you’ll be able to access the camera’s functions.

On this Fujifilm X-A5 camera, various scene positions make photography easy and fun and deliver optimum results, including Portrait, Sunset, Party, Snow, Flower, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Beach and Text scene modes. Alternatively, you can flick the dial to Advanced SR AUTO and let the camera automatically select the best scene position for you with no thought required.
