Fujifilm XQ1: the enthusiast compact camera the XF1 wanted to be?

Who it’s for?
The black Fujifilm XQ1 Digital Camera is ideal for the enthusiast compact camera.It is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 12 megapixel, 2/3″, X-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II to provide high quality imagery.The combination of the image sensor and processor enables a sensitivity range to ISO 12800 and also gives quick performance abilities to all aspects of the camera.

Key characteristics
Fujifilm’s proprietary X-Trans sensor uses a unique randomized pixel array in order to avoid the use of a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, therefore providing images with the utmost sharpness and clarity. This imaging system is benefitted by the Intelligent Hybrid AF system, which uses both contrast- and phase-detection methods to acquire focus quickly and accurately.The built-in, 4x optical zoom, Fujinon, f/1.8-4.9 lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-100mm, covering wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of conditions.

Image quality and performance
12MP 2/3″ X-Trans CMOS II SensorA large 2/3″ CMOS image sensor is integrated into the XQ1 to provide high image quality and detail. Using Fujifilm’s unique X-Trans bespoke pixel array, the sensor is designed with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing. By removing this filter from the design, higher image sharpness is possible. Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) factors are also taken into account using the EXR Processor II, which helps to automatically compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur in order to produce images with the utmost inherent sharpness. The image sensor also integrates over 100,000 phase-detection pixels into the sensor’s design for improved autofocus performance without affecting image quality.

Available for two colours

Eight Advanced Filters are also available to creatively enhance the look of imagery, and include: High Key, Low Key, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Miniature, Pop Color, Dynamic Tone, and Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple).Other Camera Features.
