X Series quality in its smallest size yet
The pocket-sized XQ1 features a newly developed F1.8 4x zoom lens and a 2/3-inch X-Trans* CMOS II sensor. The new X Series premium compact camera, offers excellent image quality and a high speed shooting response time thanks to the high performance EXR Processor II. This means the XQ1's sensor size approximately doubles** those in ordinary compact digital cameras and is able to deliver AF speed at 0.06 seconds***.
It may be ultra-small but there is no compromise on performance or image quality. Its elegant design and classy finish really makes the XQ1 stand out. It is available in a stylish Black or Silver, bringing an essential stamp of luxury and making it the perfect premium compact for discerning users.
X Series image quality
The 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II 12 megapixel sensor controls moiré and false colour generation without need for an Optical Low Pass Filter. The EXR Processor II also more than doubles**** the previous processing speed meaning noise is controlled and image clarity maintained. The user will find that greens, blues, and skin tones are all beautifully reproduced. Sensitivity ranges from ISO 100 to ISO 12800 so you can take natural and clear images even in low light. The bright F1.8 aperture gives the background a natural bokeh effect for a beautiful contrast with the main subject. Image quality is further enhanced by the XQ1's Lens Modulation Optimiser, correcting even marginal optical defects and diffractions caused when the lens aperture is narrowed. This maximises the resolving power of the lens for edge-to-edge image clarity, 3-stop****** optical image stabilisation is extremely useful when using the camera in low light conditions.
Speedy and responsive focusing
With its responsive focusing and quick start-up time, the XQ1 won't let you down when you need to capture a fleeting moment. It boasts an AF of 0.06*** seconds and a shooting interval of 0.3 seconds******* until the next frame can be taken, while shutter lag is just 0.015 seconds.
Stunning good looks
A quality performance is matched by the XQ1's luxury looks and first class handling. Settings ranging from Advanced Filters to high level manual focusing, aperture, and shutter speed can all be changed by turning the manual control ring fitted around the lens, avoiding the need to go into the menu.
Transfer images wirelessly
You can easily transfer images wirelessly from the XQ1 to your smartphone or smart tablet after installing the free FUJIFILM Camera Application app. There are no troublesome ID and password settings; just press the Wi-Fi button on top of the camera and then add the images directly to your blog or share them with friends on your social networking site. Users can set the XQ1 to read its location from smartphones and tablets enabling them to keep tabs on where they took the photo.
Review your photos in all conditions with exceptional clarity
The XQ1's 3.0-inch 920K dot Premium LCD makes viewing easy even in bright conditions thanks to the high contrast, anti-reflective, tempered glass and an 85°vertical and horizontal viewing angle.
Creative options to provide an artistic twist
With five film simulation modes you can shoot your images how you want them. Choose from Velvia to give vivid colours, ASTIA for portraits, PROVIA offers a natural all-rounder, while Sepia and Monochrome can also be enjoyed. There are also eight Advanced Filter options for extra creativity, including Toy Camera, Miniature, Dynamic Tone, Pop Colour, Soft Focus, High Key, Low Key, and Partial Colour, while in Multiple Exposure mode it's easy to overlay two images on a single frame.
Intelligent flash providing the right lighting in all settings
The built-in Super Intelligent Flash accurately controls the amount of light for the shooting situation. For example, natural-looking indoor portraits, macro subjects, or food images can all be taken with over-exposure carefully controlled. Also strong backlit subjects, such as faces, will be beautifully and naturally illuminated bringing out all the detail you want from the shadows.
Full HD Movie recording
Movies can be filmed in Full HD at 60fps and the dedicated image stabilisation function helps keep things smooth when shooting handheld. If you want to explore the movie director in you, then try out the Film Simulation Modes to give your creativity a distinctive look.

This is by far the nicest compact camera I've owned. The battery life is decent and charges very quickly via USB. I've bought a spare battery from Amazon as I'd read the battery wasn't good but not had a situation where I've needed it yet.
The picture quality for a compact is very good. The megapixel marketing con that other manufacturers use (my Sony phone has a 21mp camera) is shown up here. The lens and sensor are clearly a league above any other compact or smartphone I've ever used. It's nice being able to take photos at f1.8. It also allows me to be a lot more creative than with any other compact I've used.
I'm very very happy with my purchase. It's also very small.
The only negative would be the WiFi implementation. Having to connect to my phone or computer, disconnecting that device from the WiFi is a bit clunky. Rarely use it.
Looked online for anyone having same problem, or a solution, and didn't find any. [There were one or two reports of camera having difficulty focusing, but my issues was different in that the camera confirmed focus, but the picture was out of focus].
I sent the camera back for refund in frustration, but am regretting not asking for a replacement as it was hopefully a one off fault, and the in focus pictures were very good.
