Summary: This is a great compact camera. I use to own Canon s95 & s110, Fujifilm x20 (All great Cameras too). Although I really loved my X20, I thought it was a little too big to fit in my pocket, so I've decided to get another compact camera. It was down to XQ1 or S120.
Summary: I bought this Fujifilm XQ1 for my wife to replace a Nikon D40x which never saw use because it was always too big and too bulky for what she wanted to carry around and shoot. Also, she started shooting with a cell phone because she wanted to upload to social media.
Summary: If you're looking for a camera that you can effortlessly carry with you all the time, I think this is the best one for the price. Brilliantly sharp lens and full manual controls if you need them. The larger sensor produces images than stand up to close pixel-peeping.
Summary: After some weeks using it, I don’t have any major complain about the XQ1, by far… It is now my daily partner wherever I go… It’s easy to use, very responsive, and really powerfull as far as image quality is concerned for a « point & shoot » cam.
Summary: Extremely small. I got it for my wife and we went out shooting yesterday around town, and the results were absolutely amazing. The WiFi also works great, where we were able to look at the images on our high resolution tablet while having coffee with no need for cables or any other devices.
Excellent value and choice for a real pocket camera

Summary: I bought this camera from the Japan Amazon site after several weeks of physical and use comparisons, even borrowing my friends' Sony rx100 iii and Canon S120, as well as the XQ-1 to evaluate what to purchase.
