The XQ1’s all-metal body and high-end zoom lens give you a premium feel with the ease of use of a compact camera. Wireless transfers option keep your images safe with instant backup and you can even track your adventures with smartphone linked GPS.
To maximise the power of the lens, Fujifilm has removed the optical low-pass filter from its X-Trans CMOS II sensor. The camera features a Lens Modulation Optimiser, which reduces diffraction and aberrations by digitally processing images to improve sharpness and clarity.
The XQ1 features a 4x optical zoom that covers a 25-100mm range. Highly-refractive aspherical lenses facilitate f/1.8 brightness at the widest point. Clear images are captured even in low-light thanks to 3-stop image stabilisation.
The control ring lets you finely adjust settings, without going to the menu screen. The user can set functions such as the aperture, exposure compensation and ISO of their choice.
With its impressive phase detection AF speed of 0.06 seconds it is the fastest in the world. Fujifim’s EXR Processor II, offers high-speed performance with a start-up time of 0.99 seconds, shooting interval of 0.3 seconds, shutter time lag of 0.015 seconds and continuous shooting of 12.0 fps.
