Fujifilm is today announcing a couple of new additions to their camera lineup. And when it comes to their new X-A2 and the XQ-2, they’re putting a big emphasis on taking selfies.

No, we’re not kidding.

The new Fujifilm X-A2 has a 175 degree tilting LCD screen so that you can see your beautiful bug before you shoot yourself in the face with that 16.3MP APS-C sensor. It’s being bundled with the new Fujifilm XC 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 II OIS zoom lens complete with seven aperture blades and delivering up to 3.5 stops of stabilization. The camera also sports the company’s Eye-AF, Macro AF, and multi-target AF modes.

But it’s not alone! It’s being joined by the new XQ2–housing a 12MP 2/3 X-Trans CMOS II sensor with phase detection and the EXR II processor. There are even more cameras being announced too. Hit the jump for more.
