Hands-On: Fujifilm XQ1, X-E2 Review

 

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 […]

Fujifilm will release both the XQ1 and X-E2 next month, and both are priced accordingly to the kind of consumer they’re being geared towards to. The Fujifilm will retail for $500, while the X-E2 will be available for $1000 for its body-only version,...

Small size, physical lens ring, solid build quality, decent image quality, effective image stabilisation, competitive aperture range

Autofocus is hit and miss, no touchscreen, can’t shoot particularly close-up to subject, so-so battery life, JPEG processing a little rough

Fujifilm XQ1

 

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.

The XQ1 starts and shoots in about 1.5 seconds, which is a good time for a camera of this class, and records a very short 0.03-second shutter lag. If you shoot JPG you’ll be able to shoot at 12.3fps in burst mode, but only for 10 shots before the XQ1...
