First official review of the XQ1
Nov 25, 2013

"The new XQ1 is clearly designed to take on the all-conquering Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (our Compact Camera of the Year in 2012) and the popular Canon PowerShot S-series. It essentially offers image quality somewhere between the two at a very attractive price that is lower than both, whilst offering the same appealing retro design and great build quality that epitomises the X-series camera range. Built-in wi-fi connectivity, intuitive handling and speedy performance form the icing on what is already a very rich cake.

If Fujifilm had released the XQ1 in 2012, instead of the flawed XF1, they would definitely have had a big hit on their hands. As it stands at the end of 2013, though, the incredibly popular Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, with its bigger sensor, pretty much has things sewn up, especially considering that it now only costs a little more than the XQ1's launch price. So while the new Fujifilm XQ1 is an excellent premium compact in its own right, you should definitely compare the two side-by-side to determine which best suits you (and look carefully at our sample images for both models)."
