In this review, we will be comparing XQ1 and XQ2, two Ultracompact cameras by Fujifilm. Both Fujifilm XQ1 and Fujifilm XQ2 cameras have 12.0MP 2/3-inch sensors. Fujifilm XQ1 was introduced to market in November 2013 and Fujifilm XQ2 was launched in January 2015. There is 14 months difference between XQ1 and XQ2 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger XQ2, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Ultracompact cameras. Out of 152 cameras in this class, Fujifilm XQ1 is ranked #1
with an overall score of 52 and Fujifilm XQ2 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 52.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Fujifilm XQ1 and Fujifilm XQ2 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
