Sporting a compact and sleek form factor, along with Fujifilm's advanced X-series imaging capabilities, the XQ2 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot featuring a 12MP 2/3" X-Trans CMOS II sensor and EXR Processor II to produce high-resolution stills and full HD videos. The combination of the image sensor and processor enables a sensitivity range to ISO 12800, continuous shooting up to 12 fps, and also gives quick performance abilities to all aspects of the camera. Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans sensor uses a unique randomized pixel array in order to avoid the use of a resolution-reducing optical low-pass filter, therefore providing images with the utmost sharpness and clarity.
Complementing the imaging capabilities, the XQ2 also features a 4x Fujinon zoom lens, which covers 25-100mm equivalent focal lengths and features a fast f/1.8-4.9 maximum aperture. Aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements are integrated into the optical design to minimize aberrations and produce sharp, clear imagery and an HT-EBC coating has been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting. Benefitting the reach of this lens is optical image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake to ensure sharp imagery when working with slower shutter speeds or longer focal lengths.
The lens and imaging components reside within a body, which is accentuated by a physical mode dial, pop-up flash, and a large 3.0" 920k-dot LCD screen. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity further avails the ability to wireless share imagery to linked mobile devices or print using the instax SHARE printer, and a range of Film Simulation modes are also available for emulating the look of Fujifilm films.
