20 Reasons For

Fujifilm Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

On average Fujifilm MILC cameras have good reviews as do all cameras produced by Fujifilm.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Fujifilm X-A1 supports WiFi connectivity, unlike most of the other MILC cameras that came out around the same time as the X-A1 which do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which support WiFi connectivity to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1[plb_2070627_price] is also worth considering.
