Alongside the new X-A2, Fuji announced the XQ2 compact camera, which follows the popular XQ1. The new Fuji XQ2 sports a 12MP 2/3″ X-Trans CMOS II sensor with phase detection AF and the EXR Processor II that delivers fast AF speeds up to 0.06s.
The XQ2 is paired with a f/1.8 4x zoom lens that covers the equivalent zoom range of 25-100mm in 35mm format. At the long end, the variable aperture zoom lens slows way down to f/4.9, which is required to maintain the compact body.
The Fuji XQ2 offers a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800 and captures 1080/60p video. It includes a new ‘Classic Chrome’ film simulation mode, along with other popular Fuji film simulation modes found in prior models. The XQ2 also features built-in WiFi and can be paired to Fuji’s INSTAX Share Printer using a free app for iOS and Android devices.
The Fuji XQ2 retails for $399.95 and should be available in February 2015. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
