Fujifilm XQ1

Steve's Digicams
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: In October of 2013, Fujifilm announced the premium, pocket-sized XQ1 digital camera. Its 12-megapixel 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II image sensor has been designed to "control moiré and false color generation by using an original color filter array with a highly randomized pixel arrangement." This means the camera doesn't need a resolution-reducing Optical Low Pass Filter.

Fujifilm XQ1

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm XQ1 takes the X-Trans image sensor from the excellent X20 and puts it in a body that's sized like the XF1. The result is impressively compact and is capable of capturing great photos.
  • Pros: Sharp f/1.8 lens. X-Trans image sensor. Good high ISO image quality. 1080p60 video. Speedy. Sharp rear display. Wi-Fi. Sleek design.
  • Cons: Limited zoom range. Aperture narrows to f/4.9 at maximum telephoto. No hot shoe or EVF option. Pricey. External charger not included.

28 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Fujifilm announced its point-and-shoot XQ1 and its mid-tier X-E2 earlier this month as two products that help expand its popular X Series. This past week, Fujifilm attended PhotoPlus in New York City, and lucky for us, they brought bot the XQ1 and X-E2 along for the ride to show off exactly what both cameras are made of. So without further ado, let’s take a look at how both cameras performed from our short time with them.

  • Conclusion: It's difficult to talk about the XQ1 without referencing the 'shirt pocket' enthusiast compacts it so closely resembles, most notably the Canon S-series PowerShots and the Sony RX100. There are plenty of other interesting cameras in this sector too, but it's pretty clear that Fujifilm has taken a look the market and decided exactly where it's targeting its new baby.

  • Conclusion: It is a fun camera, but we can't help feel it fails to live up to its promises, and with the falling cost of models such as the Canon Powershot G16G15 and GX1 and the Panasonic LX7, it might find standing against the competition rather difficult.

Fujifilm XQ1 review

Pocket Lint
19 December 2013
  • Excerpt: When we first saw the Fujifilm XQ1 we were rather excited. This dinky, pocketable compact promised a good slice of the greatness that its big brother X20 model offers, albeit in a smaller package that ought to bring a yet wider appeal.
  • Pros: Small size, physical lens ring, solid build quality, decent image quality, effective image stabilisation, competitive aperture range
  • Cons: Autofocus is hit and miss, no touchscreen, can’t shoot particularly close-up to subject, so-so battery life, JPEG processing a little rough
