Fujifilm XQ2 Preview


The new Fujifilm XQ2 is a pocket-sized digicam with an F1.8 maximum aperture, 4x optical-zoom lens, Full 1080p HD video recording with stereo sound, and a 12-megapixel 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS II image sensor that is "designed to control moiré and false color generation by using an original color filter array with highly randomized pixel arrangement." Basically, Fujifilm's new sensor doesn't need an optical low pass filter, which can reduce apparent resolution. With a wide ISO range of 100 - 12800, and optical image stabilization, the XQ2 excels in lower lightning conditions.

The XQ2 also boasts the new EXR Processor II, which doubles the processing speeds available in previous Fujifilm camera generations. The XQ2 starts up in about one second, and can Auto Focus in 0.06 seconds thanks to over 100,000 phase detection pixels built into this processor. Film Simulation Modes, like the new "Classic Chrome", may be included to simulate those Fujifilm stocks of the good old days, but this is definitely a modern digicam. Wi-Fi enables users to, with a compatible iOS or Android device running the INSTAX Share App, to wirelessly transfer images to INSTAX Share Printers.
