The XQ1 is an ultra-compact camera that uses Fujifilm's X-Trans II sensor, which uses a unique pixel arrangement that removes the need for an anti-aliasing filter. Fuji says that X-Trans technology produces higher resolution, with less moiré and false color than traditional sensors. Other features include a fast F1.8-4.9, 25-100mm equivalent lens, a customizable control ring, manual controls (with Raw support), Wi-Fi, and 1080/60p video recording.

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. For flash I just leave the setting on forced ...
First Camera for Holiday
Hi I am going to New York on holiday in a few days, and last minute I have decided I would like to treat myself to a camera before I go. I would like a compact and not spend any more then £220. I have made a short list so far of:- Sony HX60 - £219 Fuji XQ1 - £219 Fuji XF1 - £119 I am open if I have missed any other camera I should be looking at. Which of these would be best, mainly the odd photo of the city and pictures of days out. Small enough to fit in my pocket. I have had a look at USA prices, and it seems cheaper in the UK, but if I am missing any saving tips I would be willing to buy from a store when I land in New York. Thanks for your help
I am not familiar with cameras that you mention, but generally there isn't a lot of difference between cameras in this price range in terms of image quality. The Sony has a much wider zoom range than the other two but you won't really need that in New York. However, you might need it for other uses after you get back. There is a Fujifilm forum on this site if you want to ask about the differences between the two models. If all you are going to do with the images is post them on the web, then you might consider just using your camera phone. Buying in the US - some points: (1) The US prices don't include sales tax which is just under 9% in NYC. (2) If you get stopped at UK customs on the way back you will have to pay 20% VAT plus any import duty. (3) The warranty with the camera may not be valid outside North America and ...

Fujifilm XQ1 - darker pictures on preview - why?
Hello, I am using my new Fujifilm XQ-1 and have found one annoying thing: when previewing pictures taken, they look darker than while shooting. I mean, when I focus, the displayed picture is ok, when I take a shoot and there is 1 sec. preview - it is unchanged. However when I press triangle button to preview previous pictures, they look darker than while shooting. After downloading to my PC, they seem to be OK. Why is it so? Thanks
Quick few questions - WiFi+BB, display info
Hello, I was thinking on some pocket camera to replace my old Olympus XZ-1 (normally I use Sony Alpha 580 with tons of lenses, so my bag is very heavy), like RX100 or Fuji XQ1. In the local shop I tested HX50 for a while and started to consider it. After reading positive review I think to change the decision. HX50 is comfortable in my hand. It has fast zooming lens (zooming in range of RX100 is much faster in HX50) and some other advantages. And is much cheaper. I was surprise about one thing: after pressing shutter half way, it was showing only aperture. Nothing about shutter speed. Is it same on your cameras or it was something wrong with it? Second question - does anyone use WiFi connection with Black Berry Q10 phone? Is really image quality so good that is comparable with other cameras (like RX100 mk ii or XQ1)? Greetings BTW, I also saw Sony HX60. Where is it on dpreview? :-)
