Fujifilm XQ2 Review

March 19, 2015 | Mark Goldstein |


Calling the Fujifilm XQ2 a modest upgrade is something of an understatement - it's identical to the original XQ1 camera, except for a faster image proccesor, new Classic Chrome film simulation, new white colour-way, and a slightly lower official price on launch. In all other respects, it's impossible to tell the two cameras apart, which is disappointing given the 18-month gap between them, and ultimately means that Fujifilm's premium compact camera has fallen some way behind the fast-moving competition. We still like what the XQ2 has to offer, but it simply hasn't been improved enough to keep up with the likes of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 series - still recommended then, but make sure to check out the competition first...
