What just happened?! Looking back on last week
Fujifilm puts X-Trans in your pocket with new XQ1...
The XQ1 follows last year's XF1 as a second (and somewhat more conservative) attempt by Fujifilm to capture a share of the high-end, stylish zoom compact market. The XQ1 has the same 25-100mm (equivalent) lens as the older camera, but a more conventional design and - most importantly - a 12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS sensor which allows hybrid autofocus, making the XQ1 impressively fast.
This sensor has impressed us a lot in the Fujifilm X20, and we're excited by its inclusion in a genuinely pocketable compact camera.
