Available in solid black and solid silver, the FUJIFILM XQ1's all-metal body is of the highest quality. With a stylish upper control deck, the black body has a crepe touch, while the silver body is fully anodized with a single tone finish matching the upper control deck. This high quality texture lets users feel the joy of holding the camera in their hands.
To maximize the power of the lens, Fujifilm has removed the optical low-pass filter from its X-Trans™** CMOS II sensor. In addition, the camera features a "Lens Modulation Optimizer," which minimizes diffraction and chromatic aberrations by digitally processing images to improve sharpness and clarity. Extraordinary resolution can be experienced with simple shooting in JPEG format.
Featuring Fujifilm's bespoke pixel array, the FUJIFILM XQ1 captures high quality images with its large 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor. And you'll be able to enjoy high-speed continuous photography and Full HD movie shooting thanks to the high OLPF-less architecture and 2/3-inch 12M X-Trans CMOS II sensor processing capture your world with crystal clarity.
Originally developed by Fujifilm for the FUJIFILM XQ1, the 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II sensor inherits the same architecture and features of the high performance sensor found in the acclaimed FUJIFILM X-Pro1 flagship model. Adoption of BSI (backside illumination) technology enables the successful incorporation of phase detection pixels into the array without affecting sensitivity performance- the key to FUJIFILM XQ1's high-speed AF.
X-Trans CMOS II adopts an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), which is used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. This lets the sensor directly capture the high resolution performance of the FUJIFILM XQ1 lens. Also exploiting the enhanced performance of the EXR Processor II, Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) factors are calculated to compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur that occur when light passes through the lens and then are applied to produce images with amazing sharpness.
The FUJIFILM XQ1 features a Fujinon 4x optical zoom that covers 25-100mm***. The adoption of highly-refractive aspherical lenses facilitates the F1.8 brightness at the widest point. Clear images are captured even in low-light thanks to 3.0-stop* 4 image stabilization and multi-layer coating technology unique to Fujinon.
The control ring offers operability similar to analog cameras. You can set your preferred functionality in advance and then use the control ring to 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.
The control ring around the lens mount can be customized to 1 of 13 settings in advance. This makes it feel more like analog camera. Functions can be set with the E-Fn button on the back. If it is set to "Default", it will automatically choose the setting recommended for whichever mode you are in.
Parameters displayed on the LCD screen directly reflect ring operation for intuitive operation. With original operating tones, users enjoy sophisticated and comfortable use of the camera every time.
Integration of phase detection pixels into the advanced sensor. The world's fastest AF speed of 0.06 seconds* has been achieved with the on-sensor phase detection AF which brings subjects into focus in an instant with the phase detection sensor. Thanks to the synergy of phase detection AF and contrast AF bringing you precision even in low light, your subject can be captured quickly and accurately in many settings. In AF-C mode, once the focus point has been set, the movements of the subject will be accurately tracked, offering you multiple photo chances.**
The high-performance image processing engine "EXR Processor II" has sped up the shooting response time. With a start-up time of 0.99 seconds, shooting interval of 0.3 seconds*** and shutter time lag of 0.015 seconds, response performance competitive to that of DSLR cameras supports smooth photography.
High-speed continuous shooting that lets you capture both movement and your best shot possible.
