Michael Perham, DP Review

  • Excerpt: I am impressed. I actually sold my Fuji X100s to fund a new lens for my DSLR system and needed a compact camera to replace it for family events etc.. The X100s was not pocketable (but a very good camera) and I really wanted something that I could just put in my pocket, hence the XQ1. I just love the direct access to basic camera controls, ISO, exposer and exposure compensation and it shoots RAW.  I also like the easy access to flash and macro.

Early impressions

  • Excerpt: So far so good with this camera. Picture quality is what we were hoping for. There's a lot happening on the automatic settings, so I would recommend reading the manual thoroughly. There's lots more to learn. Not sure yet if this would be the best choice for someone looking for a simple point and shoot, but otherwise the camera has met expectations so far.

Good for the price

Matt Eye "Matthew", Amazon

  • Summary: *** Some comparisons mentioned regarding Sony RX100 and Nikon P7700/P7800 in this review. *** The Fujifilm XQ1 does not compare to Sony RX100 (after all, the CyberShot is quite a bit pricier--good for the price and compact). However, it has phase detection + contract detection autofocus for the photography, but the video quality and performance is a different story, why the product given four out of five stars.

Great pictures, okay video

Patrick, B&H Photo
6 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought the XQ1 so I could have a nice, small camera that is always with me for casual pictures and video. It's built very well, has nice manual controls, and the picture quality is very good. The AF speed is quite fast (for a compact camera) and the camera is responsive with relatively low shutter lag.On the other hand, I found the XQ1 video to be less impressive. The video quality is okay. I would rate it about average for this class of camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Af In Movie Mode

Better pictures for near-similar-footprint as the Canon s120.

  • Summary: A brief review of the XQ1 coming from a previous ownership of Canon s120. The larger sensor truly helps in color rendition and details. I've shot the XQ1 indoors at night w/ 60w lightbulb, as the only light source, and it simply maintains color clarity and noise control at its recommended ISO 800 (or lower) setup (during Aperture Mode). My old canon s120 was nosier/grainer at the same iso.

Highly recommended!

  • Summary: I take this camera wherever I go and particularly in my car. It is small enough and light enough to pocket for every day use when the need for carrying my Fuji X-E2 or Canon 70D is inconvenient or unwarranted. The XQ-1 fits neatly into my pocket, making it instantly available for that unforgettable moment particularly when my grandchildren and family pets are around.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight, Portable, Simple Controls, Stylish
  • Cons: Limited Zoom

Parfait pour la photographie de rue .

  • Summary: Il manque en effet un chargeur car la trappe pour brancher l'appareil et le charger et de mauvaise qualité . C'est le seul reproche. Car l'appareil est extraordinaire pour sa taille, dimension et rapidité. Je ne suis pas déçu de ce petit inconvénient face à la qualité de ce Fuji qui est digne du Fuji x20. Le viseur en moins mais deux fois moins volumineux . Il tient dans la proche d'une veste la semaine et d'un pantalon le weekend . Idéal pour la street photographie .

Ottimo davvero !

Sandro Gasparetto, amazon.it

  • Summary: la qualità delle immagini è sorprendente, oltre le aspettative. Grazie all'obiettivo luminoso e grazie al nuovo sensore, si ottengono foto a 1600iso con la stessa luce che per altre macchine richiedono 3200iso. E con giusto un minimo di processing sono praticamente esenti da disturbo digitale.

Mycket bra

HasseBF, Prisjakt
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Liten men rejält byggd och riktigt bra bildkvalitet samt bra ljusstyrka som verkligen är användbart på en sån här kamera som gärna används inomhus och ute på stan. Färgbalansen är suverän och skärpan riktigt bra och distorsionen under kontroll utom på kortaste brännvidden. Tycker dock det är en stor fördel med stor vidvinkel på en kompakt och då får man räkna med viss distorsion, men den är inte störande annat än på vissa motiv.

  • Excerpt: Если кто не может определиться с точки зрения эргономики - держать фотоаппарат в руке практически также как и Canon S110.
  • Pros: Легкий и компактный. Прекрасно держать в мужской и женской руке. Не скользит в руке т.к. корпус шершавый (черный). Матрица 2/3" (на 50% больше, чем у матриц 1/1,7" которые ставятся в топовые компакты типа Panasonic LF1, Canon S120 и т.п.). Мощный процессор от старшего аппарата Fujifilm Х20. Снимки в помещении (вечером) даже без вспышки получаются однозначно качественные (ISO 800 полностью рабочее + имеется возможность настроить предельную величину ISO). Прекрасная ско...
  • Cons: После Canon приходится ОЧЕНЬ перестраиваться в части управления и настроек ... Управление вспышкой - как понял традиционная беда всех камер Fujifilm :). С трудом нашел как ее активировать. Если вдруг вспышка не работает (несмотря на выдвинутую вспышку, то в закладке меню ПАРАМЕТРЫ нужно в пункте БЕСШУМНЫЙ поставить положение ОТКЛ. Пункт меню БЕСШУМНЫЙ (регулирует звук и громкость эл. затвора) при его включении заодно ДЕАКТИВИРУЕТ вспышку и она не будет срабатывать, да...
