Does size matter? I guess the answer to that particular question really depends on the kind of context that you ask it in, and this time around, we have the smallest sized X Series shooter from Fujifilm just yet – where it will be known as the Fujifilm XQ1. This pocket-sized XQ1 will come with a newly developed F1.8 4× zoom lens as well as a similar 2/3” X-Trans CMOS II sensor, where it will also be accompanied by an EXR Processor II which also saw action in the Fujifilm X20.
In a nutshell, the Fujifilm XQ1′s sensor size would be able to more or less be double those found in ordinary compact digital cameras, allowing it to deliver the world’s fastest AF speed at 0.06 seconds, for its class. With a chassis that measures 100mm x 58.5mm x 33.3, it is also one of the most “pocketable” advanced cameras in the market, but that does not mean that Fujifilm has compromised on its quality.
Other specifications of the Fujifilm XQ1 include 12-megapixel sensor that controls moiré and false color generation without having to have an optical low pass filter. To keep up with the times, the Fujifilm XQ1 will also feature built-in wireless connectivity, where it can transfer all of your captured images sans wires from the Fujifilm XQ1 to your compatible smartphone or tablet after the free Fujifilm Camera Application app has been installed. Any takers for the Fujifilm XQ1? We do hope to hear more about its pricing details soon. [Press Release]
