FujiFilm X-A5 + Giveaway

Lifestyle

As part of #12mellydaysofchristmas, I have teamed up with FUJIFILM to give away the
FUJIFILM X-A5 to one of you lucky gems!

FUJIFILM X-A5 is the perfect entry level camera because it is compact and contemporary at the same time. I will be sharing with you what I love most about this camera and some shots that I have taken with it in this blog post! 😊

Do read till the end to find out how you can walk away with this camera!

1. Design
I love how the FUJIFILM X-A5 has a retro vintage look to it and it looks nice as a prop on its own! The camera design features sleek, clean and compact body with an understated leather finish. Not only that, the camera is lightweight which makes it easy to bring around when you are travelling!

2. Tilting Screen

This camera is perfect for nailing that selfie or group shot with your friends because of the tilting screen. It brings great convenience and you can capture a moment effortlessly with the right angle and compose. Furthermore, it is touchscreen operated and has the ability to tilt 180° upwards!

3. New Auto focus System

The X-A5 has an improved auto focus system and it features hybrid AF. This means that both contrast and phase detection AF points in play! The enhanced focusing function would bring about higher quality photos too.

4. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Wireless Connections.

This is a very important function to me as it allows me to download the hi-res images immediately to my phone! With a WiFi-enabled camera, this makes transferring super fast and efficient. Also, the battery life has been increased from 410 frames to 450 frames which makes it an ease to use the camera! 😊

    I would use this camera to capture moments in 2019 and more. Sometimes life gets so hectic that we forget to just stop and take in what’s around us. I hope that with this camera, it’ll make me pause for a moment and just capture the beauty around me…

    I would love to use it for my travels! Ever since I started saving for overseas trips, I’ve been traveling whenever I can but I realised having a good & compact camera would make a trip even better! I would also use it to take precious moments with my family, especially during gatherings such as cny which is coming!!!! I love to take moments and look back when I’m free. Time cannot be rewind but looking as photos will definitely bring us back to those happy times!

    I do not have a camera at the moment, this seems to be a perfect fit for someone like me who is new to photography 😉 I would definitely use this when I am off to explore and travel to new continents and countries I have never been!
    The vintage look would go so well with any OOTD – whether you are off to tea time on lazy Saturday afternoon or even lay back Sundays.
    The tilting feature would be perfect for selfie and wefie on any kinds of situations and especially group outing! With its’ ability to tilt by 180 degrees – you would look good on any angle- almost no rooms for mistakes!
    And must I say the auto focus enabled feature are to die for? More often than not, usual phones are not equipped with auto focus hence multiple attempts are required to get the ONE shot!
    The WiFi-enabled feature is truly amazing- it will allow me to stay close and connected to my friends and family!
    Please let me win this! I will be grateful ETERNALLY 😉

    Hi Melissa ,

    I have been following your instagram and your blog very closely. I really loves all the shots that you have captured. They are so inspiring to me. Thank you for sharing all your best moments with all of your followers.

    I really really hope to win the camera as i never own a good camera before in my life. i always thought that a handphone camera is good enough for me. I simply love taking fun shots of myself and my love ones(always!) and enjoy sharing to my friends. If i could get the chance to win this fujiflim camera, this is the best gift to receive to end a not so good 2018 year for me. And the first thing I would like to do if I receive this giveaway is to share the joy with my Husband and my family and to do a first family shot with this camera shot. Family means love, peace , comfort and everything to me in the world .

My uni life will be just perfect with this camera!! Besides, I will use it to snap the moment i spent with my family members, friends and also when I am alone. Yea i like to stay alone sometimes, it will be great to have a camera accompanied by my side, snap the scene i viewed…the road i passed…the cafe i stayed….the book i read…. the good things that happen……. If i win this camera, I will always thankful for that and use it carefully 🙂

    The truth about growing up is as one grows up, one tends to forget our parents are growing old. Unfortunately, the most precious thing one can give to their parents is time. My mom cooks really well and never fails to cook our favourite dishes every time we are home for dinner. As she grows old, she is unable to cook for us. She may not even remember all our favourite food now as her memory is not as good anymore. I hope to use this camera to capture all the precious moments spent with my mom and loved ones. Love that the FUJIFILM X-A5 is lightweight, compact and user friendly so my mom can use it as well. I hope that by capturing these memorable moments, she will always be reminded of them. I want her to know that I will always be there for her at all times. As she grows old, she may not remember my name or face but I just want her to know that she is a VIP (very important person) in my life.
    Thank you for the giving away such a meaningful gift Melissa! ! Merry Christmas to all!

    Would really win this camera and give it to my parents as their anniversary gift (they were married on Christmas Eve so this would be a great belated-Christmas/anniversary gift for them)! My parents really enjoy taking photos of each other at our house garden. Also not to mention that their phone gallery is filled with photos of their flowers LOL and of course our family group chat is always spammed with the photos they took! However it is quite inconvenient for them whenever they want to transfer/backup their photos to their computer. Am in love with this Fujifilm X-A5’s features, especially that it is WiFi-enabled and has wireless connections, this will bring lots of convenience and happiness to my parents if I ever had the chance to win this <3

    If I win this camera it will be great for me to capture my everyday moments especially with my sisters, Boyfriend, family and best friends. The tile camera will come in handy when taking selfie with my best friends. Girls just love to have fun and take photos isn’t it? Another feature that is great is that it has WIFI and Bluetooth wireless connection; sharing photos on IG and with my family and friends will be so easy! 🙂

    Omg I have been eyeing on this camera for soooooooo long!! When I get this camera, I will be snapping and documenting away everywhere I go, to keep and preserve the memories that I cherish most. I am on a mission to explore hidden gems, uncover different cultures and local stories, I hope to share what I learnt through my travels and the people I meet, by making photos and videos. Therefore, when I get this camera, it would be part of a greater purpose: to share different cultures to the world! I would really love to have this camera

    Hi, Melissa! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for the lovely giveway. I have always wanted a compact camera since my college years and this Fujifilm X-A5 would be perfect to get me started along the way. I always love the idea of capturing candid and in-the-moment shots as it gives a lot of depth and character to the story and the shot. I have always wanted to get an easy and user friendly camera to take beautiful shots with my family, my boyfriend and my friends during our travels or important and memorable occasions. Recently, I have also started following photography pages and starting to develop an interest in photography. I always feel that camera shots give that extra sparkle of quality compared to those digital smartphones. That is how I would use the Fujifilm X-A5!

    Lots of love,
    Emily

    I’ve always wanted to get into photography, and when I saw that you were doing a giveaway on the FUJIFILM X-A5 which happens to be perfect for entry level camera user, I was pretty stoked and excited about it ! 😀 As the camera has different functions for me to optimise, taking photos with this camera would definitely produce higher quality images/videos than your typical phone camera. Thus allowing me to capture memories with my family and friends and the different beautiful scenic sights in a much higher definition. I would love for my photos/videos to come out like the ones as seen on your blog/Instagram & YouTube Channel :D. I’m sure I would be carrying this camera wherever I go, so that I would not miss any opportunities to document the best moments of my loved ones and I. Like what Karl Lagerfeld says, “What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce “, and I couldn’t agree more.

    I would use the camera to capture the lovely memories with family prior to my study stint overseas. I have a habit of reviewing family photos and keeping each of them Iin prayers. This camera will help me with capturing raw emotions of love and tide me through the highs and lows overseas, with family and memories held so close to my heart! 🙂 This would mean the world to me to spur me on as I step into new territories!

    I would love to use the FUJIFILM X-A5 to capture special moments that words cannot describe for I feel that it is much easier to convey human feelings in pictures than in words. To me, taking photos and developing them into films allow me to tangibly feel the moment, look into the past and at the same time to dream about what will happen in the future. Especially in today’s age where snapping photos with one’s smartphone is so prevalent, it saddens me that photography is reduced to just digital softcopy on our phones. I hope that with the FUJIFILM X-A5, I would be able to do more nature photography. I love being out in nature and this gives me a good excuse to be where I love to be. This camera gives me a chance to share about mother nature that many people have never seen tied up in a concrete jungle like Singapore. I want to help inspire my peers to get out and see the world, or to look more closely at the world where they already are in. As a bonus, the auto-focus and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth features make taking photos really convenient and beginner-friendly for me as well. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, Mel and The Dream Team!

    I would love to use the FUJIFILM X-A5 to capture moments that words cannot describe, for I feel that it is much easier to convey the realest emotions in pictures than in words. It saddens me that in today’s day and age, films and photographs are reduced to snapshots stored in our smartphones because I can still remember how the developed films documented a huge part of my childhood memories. With the FUJIFILM X-A5, I hope to bring back my hobby of scrapbooking, by taking photos of beautiful memories with my loved ones, developing them, and pasting them in my personal book of memories which I will call “My Happy Place”! As I am growing older, I start to realise how my loved ones surrounding me like my parents and grandparents are growing older and older day by day and I do not want to waste anymore memories left un-documented. Thank you Mel and The Dream Team for making this possible for me! I hope that the photos I take with the FUJIFILM X-A5 will always allow me to look into the past, and at the same time, to dream about what will happen in the future. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With the FUJIFILM X-A5, I hope to bring back my hobby of scrapbooking, by taking photos of beautiful memories with my loved ones, developing them, and pasting them in my personal book of memories which I will call “My Happy Place”! As I am growing older, I start to realise how my loved ones surrounding me like my parents and grandparents are growing older and older day by day and I do not want to waste anymore memories left un-documented. Thank you Mel and The Dream Team for making this possible for me! I hope that the photos I take with the FUJIFILM X-A5 will always allow me to look into the past, and at the same time, to dream about what will happen in the future.

    I’ve always wanted to get into photography, and when I saw that you were doing a giveaway on the FUJIFILM X-A5 which happens to be perfect for entry level camera user, I was pretty stoked and excited about it ! 😀 As the camera has different functions (like the tilting screen and the enhanced auto-focus system) for me to optimise, taking photos with this camera would produce higher quality images/videos than your typical phone camera. Thus allowing me to capture memories with my family and friends and the different beautiful scenic sights in a much higher definition. I would love for my photos/videos to come out like the ones as seen on your blog/Instagram & YouTube Channel :D. I’m sure I would be carrying this camera wherever I go, so that I would not miss any opportunities to document the best moments of my loved ones and I.

    I am a teacher at a public school and I coach the softball and baseball teams in our school in one of the rural areas in the Philippines. I’d use the camera to capture my athletes in these games. I also travel local and this camera would be perfect to capture the best of the Philippines; beaches, mountains, waterfalls, smiles.

    Hi Melissa, it’s so happy to see this giveaway. Thanks for having it and merry Christmas to you and your family. I want to win this camera because I’m a super beauty and photography enthusiast. I like keeping memories with photos, jot down every previous moment with family, friends and of course the scenes itself. Photos could tell storys, things nowadays mostly depends on photos and videos which a good photo should speaks itself. Talking about camera, I have always plan to get myself a compact camera yet I don’t have the ability yet, because I realize I can’t bring my DSLR to most of the occasion they are too bulky to bring around especially travelling, hence I come to realize I should have get a compact camera instead after buy myself a DSLR but I’m so broke now huhu coming to fujifilm X-A5, I like how stylish it is in terms on the design, it is not only function as a camera, it also can be used as ur props when u take photo holding a fujifilm X-A5 when you are running out of pose, use it as props when u take foodie photos or travel ootd photos on the bed. I always like how minimalist the design is and of course the famous AF function which makes the photos so high quality. I’m a person very typical with photos quality, so it is very important to have a good camera and practice more skill wised. Lastly I am so amazed with your photos and wishing that I could have it and take good photos like you. *fingers crossed*

    If I win this FujiFilm X-45 camera, I will definitely bring it to Finland with me to capture every magical moment that I will have with my loved one. I already have an idea on what and how I would capture those moments, I just really need a real good camera which I don’t own. Also, I would bring it to all the weddings (many of them) that I will be attending in 2019 so that I can take plenty of pictures with my friends and share it with them instantly! xx

I missed out chances to be with them. It would be perfect if I can capture their smiles and keep it with me because its a HAPPINESS THROUGH CAMERA❤️ I would also capture beautiful places because MEMORIES NEVER DIES! I believe this fujifilm camera will definitely be the BESTTT camera for my upcoming days. It will definitely makes my life much more happier and easier. 2018 is ending soon, 2019 is coming, all i want is a camera to make sure i can capture the upcoming moments and keep them together in my heart and in this FUJIFILM X-A5!

    Hi Mel! I would use this camera to take more flatlays and it will definitely be easier with the tilting screen to get the perfect angle. More importantly, as the year comes to an end I realise that it is such a pity that memories made throughout the year weren’t captured nicely and printed out for keepsake. It sounds really old school but I would love to capture simple daily affairs and print them out to keep in my new “happy journal” gifted to me by my colleague for Christmas! This would be in line with my new year’s resolution: To cherish my loved ones around me. Once again Merry Christmas to you Mel <3

As the year approaches to an end, I realised that many happy moments were not documented and it is really a pity. I know it sounds really old school but in this upcoming year I am looking forward to taking more photos with my loved ones and printing them out for keepsake.

    This camera looks like an win for me! Compact enough to fit into my classroom bag, tilting screens so I can get shots of group work at different angles (my kids love to do science experiments on the floor given the opportunity), new auto focus system to capture the eureka moment (or oh shit!. It’s funny when we share them at Parent-Teacher-Meets) and wireless/Bluetooth meaning I could send them up to my phone to upload onto the class blog and/or for sharing with the parents on our communication app! The phone is quick and good. But the high resolution pictures that this camera take would really help in submission of pictures to the school newsletter. They always want them in high-res!

I could focus on the things that I find unique in the respective countries (for e.g cherry blossoms in Japan or the gothic architecture of Sagrada Familia both exterior and interior in Spain) and share it on social media or with my family instantly using the Wi-Fi enabled camera. I no longer need to wait to get back to the hotel to transfer the pictures to my laptop as I can transfer them to my mobile device on the go. I could also share the pictures with my fellow travel companions without having to email them the pictures or to upload on Google photos for them. Hassle-free! 🙂 I will be so grateful if I win this Christmas giveaway! Regardless of who the winner is, thank you very much for giving us a chance to win this. God bless!

    They said the best part of pictures is that even when things change, the memory once had will remain.
    Just like my dearest uncle who had just passed on on 21st Dec 2018. Even though he’s up in heaven now, he lives in our heart and his cheerful smile remains. I’ve just printed our selfie together to look at while I’m at work.

    I hope to be given a chance to win this camera to capture more beautiful things in life, be it for travel purpose, daily content, family portrait etc..
    But one of my wish for wanting to own a camera is to capture the beauty of northern lights. I planned to show my dad the northern lights even though he can’t be at the exact location.

    I love how this camera has a wifi and Bluetooth setting so I can instantly share pictures from camera to my phone and send it to my love ones. I also love how smart it is to have a touchscreen and tilted screen which is great for group shot and selfie.

    Hi Mel, I see myself using this camera for basically everything moment in my life! Be it going out with my friends and family, sharing a moment with my other half or traveling around the world, I always love to take pictures because they help me freeze and remember all these special moments. Once in a while, I look through all the photos I have taken just to relive the memories and remind myself of how much love I’m surrounded by. I’m graduating from university next May so I especially hope to use this camera to capture the best moments with my schoolmates and suitemates in my last semester. I know that this is a moment in life is something that I may not get to experience again. I may not be living in a residential college and many of my international friends may be going back to their countries, which makes it hard for us to meet up. I really don’t want to let these memories slip by. The tilting screen would be such a great additional feature to taking pictures (never own a camera with this feature).

    I was so excited to see that you are holding a giveaway on camera and immediately pop by your blog to see what is so lovely about this treasure!! So, I was from photographic society but ironically do not have a camera myself as I just simply could not afford it. I always thought dslr would be what i am looking for but after reading your post, I think I have fall in love with Fujifilm X-A5 too! First and foremost, the design is so chic and the leather finish add a retro feeling that makes me want to bring it along to wherever I go! And really like the fact that it comes with features like touchscreen and bluetooth as I know it makes a camera much more easier to use. I am attending a concert upcoming in January and I really really hope I can get this camera to capture my favourite moments of it as my Samsung A5 phone just won’t do the work well. With that say, fingers crossed that I will win this baby:)

    This would be a good camera to capture all my family gatherings! As we age, my parents are also Aging! So a good camera can help me capture all these beautiful moments and allow me to remember them for life!

    I was so excited to see that you are holding a giveaway on camera and immediately pop by your blog to see what is so lovely about this treasure!! So, I was from photographic society but ironically do not have a camera myself as I just simply could not afford it haha. As a photographer, I always thought dslr would be what i am looking for but after reading your post, I think I have fall in love with Fujifilm X-A5 too! First and foremost, the chic deaign really attracts me alot and the leather finish makes the camera gives off a retro vibes that makes me want to bring it with me to whereever I go. I also really like the fact that it has features like bluetooth and touchscreen that makes it a camera really convenient to use! I am going to attend an upcoming concert in January and I really hope that I could get this to capture my favourite moments as my Samsung A5 phone will not do the job as well haha. With that said, fingers crossed that I will win this baby 🙂 Thanks if you have read till here!!

    I would use it to document my college n uni life. It’s small, handy and light which makes it very convenient. It’s also easy to transfer pics to my mac which I really like.

    Recently wore my favourite Runafter dress to Omnia Bali while on vacation, and it was the most gorgeous dress at the most gorgeous club but my iPhone photos just did not do it justice!! I love to travel and love taking photos to document all my adventures, but sometimes a traditional DSLR just is too much of a hassle to drag around… and I end up having to rely on my lousy iPhone :/ Nothing beats a good camera and the feeling of getting that perfect shot. I’ve been looking around for a compact camera for my upcoming USA roadtrip (for my boyfriend’s graduation trip!) and this seems so perfect! Especially with the wifi so I can update the gram along the way 😉 I love the way you got such soft light and lovely warm tones in the photos you took with the Fujifilm X-A5, and would love to experience it for myself! It really does look so gorgeous too as a prop! xx

    Hey Mel!
    Recently wore one of my favourite pieces from Runafter to Omnia Bali while on vacation, and it was such a gorgeous dress in a gorgeous setting, but all the iPhone pictures I took did not do it justice!! I really treasure being able to document all my travels and adventures because I always will look back on my favourite photos, and all the emotions of that moment and memories from that time will come rushing back to me… And nothing beats that feeling of nailing the perfect shot! It’s so funny how my boyfriend actually said to me last night that we don’t have any recent photos together, which is really so sad to think about! The traditional DSLR is really so heavy to lug around sometimes, especially while overseas, For safety sake, sometimes I just give up and use my iPhone instead, because I’m worried about having too many heavy things to carry around. Will be going on a USA roadtrip with my boyfriend very soon for his graduation trip, and we will be seeing so many amazing places for the first time together! Would be such a dream if I am able to document all our memories together (: Plus the wifi is an amazing addition so I can update the gram too 😉 The Fujifilm X-A5 seems so perfect – compact, so gorgeous (the red is everything!!) and the soft light and warm tones of the photos you took are just so beautiful. I would really love to be able to use this to create more beautiful keepsakes <3 Merry Christmas! xx

    I would love to win the Fujifilm X-A5 camera for our upcoming trip to Nepal – Everest Base Camp (“EBC”) in March 2019. My Husband and I are avid mountain climbers and trekking has been our common interest (True fact: it’s only through hardships that we see each other’s worst sides and still accept each other). This will be our 2nd trip to Nepal and I hope to be able to bring the Fujifilm X-A5 camera along to capture the fun, enjoyable and exhausting moments of our 16 days hike. During our 1st hike to Lang Tang in Nepal, our greatest regret was not having/bringing a camera and we missed out (so much) on capturing the moments of the trip as our phone cameras did not do justice to the scenery which our naked eyes saw. After that trip, we told ourselves that if we were ever going to Nepal again, we will definitely need to bring a camera along!

    The Fujifilm X-A5 camera is lightweight (weighing approx. 361g) which means it will be a great asset to our EBC trip without much additional weight, something that is crucial when bringing a camera up high altitude. In addition, the operating temperature is from 0 – 40°C which is perfect for the weather in Nepal! The enhanced focusing function which the camera has will also bring about higher quality photos which will accentuate the beautiful landscape. Lastly, another awesome function is that the camera will allow us to download the hi-res images immediately to our phones so that we are able to show our family and friends the wonders which we see quickly via our social media.

    I am really hoping to win this Fujifilm X-A5 giveaway as a SURPRISE for the husband since he has been researching hard for an affordable camera for our trip and also as a reward for his hard work with the house renovations which he single-handedly managed without an Interior Designer and without my help as I’ve been busy settling into my new job. This camera will certainly be a positive addition to our lives – capturing the new memories we create together as a newly married adventure couple with the most vibrant and naturally beautiful colours!

    Once again, thank you Mel & Fujifilm for this AMAZING giveaway! Wishing you both a Happy & Blessed 2019 ahead! <3

Plans of being active have been shelved as it’s been busy for several months now. I need to learn to reorganise, breathe and spend time to see the beauty around me. Winning Fujifilm X-A5 will give me that opportunity to savour and capture the moments before time passes you by. After all, time does not stand still and a camera will surely allow me to relive those moments.

    2018 has been an emotional rollercoaster year for me and my family. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer earlier this year and passed on 3 months later . My only regret was not being able to travel much with him (and my mum) since they were always busy at work, trying to give us the best. With all the grief and undue stress on my mum, soon later she also discovered she has contracted stage 4 cancer. Thankfully chemotherapy is working for her at the moment, and she is due to complete her sessions and go into remission this coming February 19. I hope to travel with her and bring her to places which she has not been to. Since I could not turn back time, with this camera, I hope to capture memories that last forever.

    I would use this wonderful camera for my
    travel and food shots.
    A camera that is lightweight would be super useful because like most ladies, I already tend to have lots of stuff in my bag (and yes, every single thing is an essential ).
    I also love the auto-focus function because I am usually taking a photo of some yummy bite or drink that I am holding in my other hand. Love those those foodie macro shots!
    And as I am hoping to get some time to travel and figure out the next step in my career next year, I am hoping to get an awesome camera to accompany me for those soul-searching moments.
    Perhaps, I will even get some time to pick up some neat photoediting skills and that’s where the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connection functions will come in super handy.
    Hope you pick me Melissa! A huge fan of your photos and of you and James!

    Cheers, Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!

    Qiao Yue

    IF I WIN THIS CAMERA…… I want to capture the most natural moments of human life. Going to be in my 30s… most of my friends are starting to have kids. However, what i realise is that my friends are so busy that they don’t have time to take photos of their own children. As one of my friend commented during a xmas party – “thanks for capturing the photos, I don’t even have nice photos of my kids.” I felt really dishearten when i heard this especially everyone is ‘about instagramming’ nowadays.
    I already knew how awesome a Fujifilm camera is. My bf owns a Xt -1, however, it is really too slow (it’s too old, auto-focus doesn’t work that well anymore =( ) to deal with capturing pictures of human… Especially KIDS!!! I don’t have kids myself but i really love kids and how they have the best SMILE, no fake! I want to help my friends capture these lovely moments of their children that they can keep for life =). So, that’s my upcoming goal for next year =)

    THANKS MEL! Merry Xmas (post) to YOU. Well, Happy New Year in advance to you then=)

    Will be getting married next year and would really like a camera to capture our memories while on our honeymoon!!! Unfortunately our home will only be ready in 2022 so currently we are pondering our options for housing. I cant wait to start married life after seeing the lovely home you have and adventures you guys have together.

    I love travelling because every time I visit a new place, it just reminds me of how big the world really is and how much there is to see. There are moments that we have experienced and sights that we have encountered which we would want to keep with us for a very long time. Having a travel-friendly camera that can capture those moments, and recreating those memories through photos that are vibrant yet natural, is to me the perfect and most meaningful gift I could get 🙂

    To me, photography is a very important in capturing all the moments that seemed to pass by really quickly. Alot of people will say my memory is very bad, and I have to agree so I feel like a big part of my life is about taking photos everyday for the little moments that matter. I think the first thing I’ll do with the camera is to hold a photoshoot for my 2 years old nephew, he’s growing really quickly! I would love to capture all his silly antics in pictures. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    However, during the recent trip to bkk, I dropped my camera into a water fixture and it started to give me problems ever since. I tried fixing it and cost me hundreds. I would like another new camera to capture more images and the happy faces around me! Hope to win thisssss! Love you Mel!

However with the availability of a lot photo editing applications, we have lost some originality of the beauty of the moment that we have captured. Hence, I will wish to win this to capture some of my important/special and happy moments with my love one including my family and friends.

    I would use the camera to capture moments of my family and friends!
    Most of the time I would accompany my friends to different parts of singapore (or the world when we can afford it) to take photos for them because I like taking photos and they like being taken. As we celebrate our 7th year friendship with my bunch of girl friends (our hashtag hahaha #老婆们❤️)this year, moving on in 2019 one of them is getting married (can you believe it!), she is probably hiring a legit photographer, but if we could also capture some moments and make the memories by ourselves it’ll be nice to print it out for her.

    P.S Oh wow! When I read your Instagram post, I just simply thought it’ll be lightweight and that itself is already plus point for me to slowly move forward from iPhone camera to a real camera. Then I realise there is the flip screen and also wifi for fast downloads (double wow its a super plus point for impatient people like me 🙂 !!!!)

    As we celebrate our 7th year friendship this year (our hashtag #老婆们❤), guess we made it pass the make-it-or-break-it anniversary HAHHAHA, moving on to 2019 one of them is getting married. Can you believe it!! Shes probably hiring a professional photographer, but I thought if we could contribute some personal shots to her collection of memories it’ll be really nice!

    P/S When I first saw it on your Instagram I just thought wow will be a good change from iphone camera to a real camera since its lightweight and all! But reading this article, What??! It has a ‘flip’ screen is much need for me to angle it well with my short hands and ‘cheat’ with my big face HAHHA Plus the wifi function is so winning me over!!! (Pretty sure people with impatient personality like me agrees ;)) Happy New Year ahead as well!

So far we’ve travelled to a few countries together and the pictures were all taken using our iphones. Those are precious memories to me but many of these pictures did not turn out as beautiful as i wanted them to be.

    I also love taking silly shots of my boyfriend when he entertains me with his silly antics. I do not have a good memory and tend to forget things (and memories) so i believe that’s the best way to bring back the moments to me.

I do not have a camera and a camera has always been something I always wanted to have so I can capture moments during travels, time spent with family and friends and even the smallest things that perhaps taught me to be grateful of everyday life.
    If I win this camera…OH-EM-GEE!! I would be running around/jumping around in joy!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
    I would first explore on how to “manoeuvre” this vintage optical instrument. Then I would bring A5 with me whenever I travel – Shanghai, Yogyakarta, Cebu etc. I want to capture animals, landscapes, sceneries, peoples and many many more! I would use this camera to capture moments especially on this upcoming New Year of 2019. I especially want to use this camera to capture moments during my sister wedding which is on 2019!!
    I want to live my life looking back at memories with big smile on my face and this camera would be my vital instrument in making loads of memories on this coming year! Not only this vintage little camera would capture moments and memories, it has been my dream for many years to own a Fujifilm camera and to learn photography in depth. Winning this Fujifilm X-A5 would be a dream come true to me!! #12mellydaysofchristmas #melissackoh #fujifilmsg #fujiflimxa5 #christmasgiftformeprettypleasee

    If I win this camera, I would use this camera to capture moments with my grandparents who are in their 80s. Growing up into late 20s has brought me to realise how fragile life can be sometimes and we have to love courageously all the time =) Being away from home for 5 years for study and work means I have missed out 5 years worth of quality time around my family especially my grandparents who are at their old age. The only medium to knowing the laughters and joy, the sadness every other emotions of their daily life is when moments are captured with a camera. Therefore, now that I have returned to my home country, I am very very keen to own my very first camera so I can capture, save and keep these precious memories with my family by my side. I love my family so much. #capturingmoments #creatingmemories

I realised photography is really important when my mum passed away due to Cancer and selecting a photo for her funeral was diffcult because alot of the photos taken were only with my phone. So some of the photo quality was not as good… So I believed winning a camera would definitely help me in achieving best shots of myself, loved ones and my puppy…♡♡♡ remember guys: photos is one way to capture the moments in your life be it a happy or a sad memories.

    The rose is red,
    The mango is yellow,
    I wonder in my tiny head,
    Will you read my entry in a row.

    If I am lucky enough to win this camera,
    (OH PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN), I will —

    Photograph all what I love.
    Capture all the precious moments.

    “A photograph is a pause button of life.”

    We don’t know what happen next. I mean even next second. We can’t guess and we can’t really predict. Do, when time still allow you to do so. That’s why, when people ask me : “hey why are you always taking photos.” “OMG please la girl stop taking photo”.

    I will answer : “You won’t think photo is important, only until you lose your beloved one.”

    I will capture all my beloved family and friends in this camera and make the memories stay forever. I am going to capture my birthday party, my parents’ wedding anniversary, my sister graduation ceremony and so on.

    And I am going to show all the photos in camera to my future son/ daughter. ❄️

    Sometimes I wonder —

    What is the story behind a piece of photograph taken? Like what type of journey had the people gone through it?

    For example, when I saw a family portrait for graduation, I can feel, “How lovely is the parents. How grateful and how touching did they feel when their son or daughter finally graduated.”

    The most important point is that, the most precious moment, the whole event, their emotions, their face expression, will always be the best memory.

    Photograph, can speaks all things unexplainable and unspeakable through verbal words. It’s having the greatest power to describe. Even without words. ♥️

    If I am lucky enough from being selected to win this awesome camera, I will be JUMPING here and there for the whole day long! I do not own any photographing equipment and apparatus. I only have my phone. If you are asking me, what is the basic necessary element of life? I will tell you that —

    1. Family
    2. Education
    3. A good camera

    Life is about having a camera.
    Life is about having a Fujifilm Camera.
    Life is about having a great influencer — Mellisa C. Koh

    If I win this camera, I will —

    1. Share my stories through the Lens!

    2. Frame all my beloved one in a photograph.

    I am a girl who, loves exploring the world, capturing every precious moments, and always ready to go on new adventure with my best partner, camera. (But how sad is it, I have not own any of it yet.)

    Generally, life is a unpredictable and in-scriptable movie. We as a human being can’t stop any second or any minute from creeping away, but “Photograph” can.

    Photo speaks. It’s a magical tool.

    I am going to utilise this camera to make all the precious moment in my life live in it forever. Wouldn’t mind these beautiful moments to stay, forever and ever in my heart.

    I am not a professional photographer. I am a “Life Adventurer”, a “Self Taught Photographer”. I might not have the most complete and full set of photograph equipment. But, I wish to own this awesome camera. It will definitely make my day. Hand crossed

    Thanks for the giveaways, Mel!

    First of all, this will be a PERFECT GIFT for me as I can use it to capture / document the my wedding journey (from planning to actual wedding in 2019)! Wedding planning is always the exciting part and I wish I could have these details properly captured and kept 🙂

    Secondly, I would love to create beautiful memories when spending time with the family. I find every minutes spend with the family is precious and time can never be brought back. As such, with the camera given, I will fully use it every time I spend with the family and it is the moments that I do not want to give a miss.

    P/S: This camera will be the first camera if I won this giveaways; travel with a compact camera is always the choice and I will take good care of my travel companion.

    I’d use it to capture photos with my parents! As life gets busy, we often have less quality time spent with our parents. But it’s important to remember to spend quality time with them as they’re aging with each passing day, and you wouldn’t want to regret not having spent time with them when they were alive.

    Thanks for the giveaway Melissa! 😉

    I would love to have this fuji camera as a perfect Christmas give as I want to tell stories that can only be effectively conveyed through pictures.

    It tells everything and of course it can also serve as a statement of myself. A testament of things I’ve seen, happiest laughters or desperate cries, passionate souls, stunning landscape, from the most mundane to the most beautiful things.

    To capture such amazing moments is my hobby and a profession. It’s a passion and an attitude. ❤️

    Merry Christmas !!

    I’d just recently changed my job to being a flight attendant (my dream job!) and I always have my trusty Iphone with me to take all my layover photos. As much as what an Iphone can do, it will never be able to achieve the photo qualities that I’m constantly looking for. Especially when the photos being uploaded to Instagram, the quality seems even worser. Thus, camera is the only solution. I believe that Fujifilm X-A5 would be tagging along and being a part of me in my more upcoming journey in the future. I don’t know how long I’ll stay in this job but while I can and still enjoying, I would love to document every single countries that I’ve visited, and more importantly, to take photos that tell stories.

    Woah! The first thing that got my attention was the design of the FujiFilm X-A5 sleek red coloured camera!

    Have been following your blog posts and thought the flat lay tips would come in handy with this camera.

    It would be really perfect to have this camera as I’m bringing my mum on a trip to Taiwan for a holiday in mid 2019. The plus point would be that my mum would capture great shots of me as well with the auto focus function! :’)

    Thanks for holding this giveaway.

    I’ve been hunting for a decent camera to help out with a few things:
    1. Instagram worthy pictures
    2. Capturing landscapes during travels
    3. Vlogs for key occasions!

    I like how compact and lightweight the camera is, making it convenient to bring this with me on most days. Would def have to think twice about lugging this around if it’s a heavy gadget. The plus point here for me would be the tilting screen function which eases the taking selfies during my solo travels!

    Hope to bag this away for christmas, and an early birthday gift in the month of january! :’)

    Sending lots of well wishes to you and James!

If I win this camera, I will use this camera to continue to capture precious and beautiful moments shared with my loved ones.

    I hope to win this camera because I love Fujifilm camera very much, it is compact and convenient to capture memorable moment with my girl.. Furthermore the camera is lightweight so is the best choice for petite mummy like me to bring out during travel as well. Mummy has to carry mummy bag, push stroller or sometimes carry toddler is tiring and frustrated.. I wish to take pretty photos like other traveler to keep as memory but my phone might be not advance and latest model enough so don’t have many good functions to take high quality photos.. This camera has the tilting screen and auto focus can capture right angle effortlessly is the biggest convenience for mummy.. WiFi and Bluetooth wireless connection allow me to download images immediately instead of take time to transfer to laptop, i can upload and share the photos instantly with my friends and family.. but no need wait until my girl sleep at late night only transfer the photos is troublesome and inconvenience.. thank you for this giveaway and hope to win this Fujifilm X-A5 and bring it to many many places to capture memorable memories with my family… mummy need this present desperately.. hahaha

    I would love to receive this camera and gift it to the most amazing superwoman I know – my mum. She single-handedly brought up my brother and I throughout our teenage years and has been there for me in every stage of our lives. She’s the most amazing, strongest and selfless woman I know and she’s never given up on us – despite how difficult it must have been for her to juggle with raising us and her many jobs. I thank God every day for blessing us with a warm and selfless mum and I am so very grateful to have her in my life. My mum has photography as her hobby when she was younger, but she has been trying to save every penny so that she could get my brother and I through school. Hence until our only camera (a Fujifilm A100 camera that we got as a gift) broke down, we never had another camera for years in our house. Thank you Mel for this Christmas giveaway, and I really hope I could win this for my mum because she is everything to me, and I would love to be able to gift her something I know she would love and treasure. <3

    I really love vintage items, and the camera’s retro vintage look is perfect for me! The look of the camera reminds me of two of my favorite seasons/celebrations – Autumn and Christmas! I would love to bring it on my travels as I will be embarking on a month-long graduation trip to Europe with my mum this year! As this is the first time we’re travelling for a long time, and also because I’m bringing her to her dream destinations in Europe, I would love to have a camera to capture her happiest and most memorable moments on the trip of her lifetime! Also, as there will be a lot of travelling and walking, the lightweight camera would be a really big help.

    Another reason why I want the camera, is also because when I use my phone’s front camera for selfies, it will usually turn out blur and foggy as my phone’s camera is slightly spoilt due to my phone dropping to the ground all the time. Therefore, the camera’s tilting screen would be of a great help as it is able to effortlessly capture the perfect moment of us in HD form! This is something that I really appreciate because my picture often gets blurry when it is zoomed in. I would love to see the beautiful landmarks of the world in HD form even after I am back in Singapore as it reminds me that all the happy moments during my travels were real!

    The best part of this camera which I really love would be the Wi-Fi and bluetooth wireless connections. With these functions, I do not have to use cables and be afraid that my computer would not be able to read my camera and being unable to back up my photos. Downloading the photos immediately will allow me to back up instantly and this is a very important function as unexpected circumstances can happen!

    Thank you Melissa and Fujifilm for organizing this giveaway, and I hope I can win this as it will be a great start to my year! Happy new year! 🙂

Therefore, the camera’s tilting screen would be of a great help as it is able to effortlessly capture the perfect moment of us in HD form! This is something that I really appreciate because my picture often gets blurry when it is zoomed in. I would love to see the beautiful landmarks of the world in HD form even after I am back in Singapore as it reminds me that all the happy moments during my travels were real!

    The best part of this camera which I really love would be the Wi-Fi and bluetooth wireless connections. With these functions, I do not have to use cables and be afraid that my computer would not be able to read my camera and being unable to back up my photos. Downloading the photos immediately will allow me to back up instantly and this is a very important function as unexpected circumstances can happen!

    Thank you Melissa and Fujifilm for organizing this giveaway, and I hope I can win this as it will be a great start to my year! Happy new year! 🙂

    Hi Melissa and James! ✨

    Studying overseas had given me lots of opportunities to travel and see the world – all the amazing European cities, quaint lovely towns, the beautiful nature parks and their creations. These moments were one in a lifetime and I always carried a camera with me to capture all these experiences. But I also had to constantly put down the big and bulky camera to appreciate the moments. However, I hope to do both together with the Fujifilm X-A5!

    Fujifilm cameras are known for their exceptional colours and its aesthetic. Moreover, they are compact, light and easy to use! I would love to upgrade to a camera with wifi for ease of transfer and be able to edit and share my photos readily. There are so many treasured times I would like to share with my close ones and I believe this camera can help me do that!

    Photos and videos bring you back to that time and moment, and I truly treasure those days dearly. Hence I would love to win the Fujifilm X-A5 to be able to take more lovely photos in Singapore and abroad with my loved ones!

    Thank you and have a blessed 2019!
