FILM SIMULATION - Signature color expression by Fujifilm

The vivid colors of Velvia! The gentle skin tonality of ASTIA! Just like choosing the ideal film for a creative direction, you can select and simulate the unique look of Fujifilm's acclaimed films. Film Simulation also lets you replicate MONOCHROME and SEPIA film photography.

PROVIA / Standard
Natural color quality captures true-to-scene photos.
Velvia / Vivid
Dramatic and vibrant expression of reds, blues and greens.
ASTIA / Soft
Capture both natural skin gradations and brilliant color tonality of backgrounds.
SEPIA
Define memorable moments in the nostalgic, warm tones of sepia.
MONOCHROME (+Ye / R / G FILTER)
Express the moment with the honesty and depth of monochrome.

Full HD Movie x Film Simulation Mode

Full HD Movie (1920 x 1080) mode features 60fps for smoother capture of the action in full high definition. You can also take advantage of Monochrome and the vivid color expression of other Film Simulation modes, and exploit the brightness of the lens to shoot movies with a dreamy "bokeh" effect. Also the new movie scene recognition function can automatically recognise 6 types of scene and optimise settings for beautiful results under a variety of shooting conditions.

Even when shooting moving subjects, Auto Focus keeps the action in sharp focus. And if you are shooting scenes while walking, image stabilization can minimize blur.

Make Cinema Magic with FULL HD Movie x Film Simulation

PROVIA

True-to-life natural tonality and color reproduction.

Velvia

Shoot Full HD Movies in the vibrant colors of Velvia.

MONOCHROME

Capture the action in richly expressive monochrome tones.

MULTIPLE EXPOSURE - Rediscover the art of double exposure photography.

Just select Multiple Exposure mode and take the first shot. Then frame and shoot the second exposure while viewing the first image in the LCD monitor. This lets you not only precisely position and focus the second shot, but also "see" how the finished Multiple Exposure image will look and make creative adjustments like zooming in to enlarge the subject.

Motion Panorama 360

Just sweep the camera right-left or up-down to shoot giant panoramas up to 360°. When you view the panorama playing back on your camera or personal computer, you can enjoy a seamless panorama image with both ends stitched together to create a “cylinder” view.

Image Processing Function of Multi Frame Composition

Pro Focus Mode with Face Detection

This focus-bracketing mode emulates the gentle, out-of-focus background look of a DSLR when shooting portraits or macro subjects. A single press of the shutter first takes an exposure focused on the main subject, then additional exposures at different focus points*. This produces a final image emphasizing the sharply focused subject against a soft, out-of-focus background**.

Pro Low-light Mode

Ideal for shooting non-moving subjects in low light, this mode automatically takes a series of four high-sensitivity & low-noise exposures and then combines them into an image with less noise than the single exposures.

Aspect Ratio

FUJIFILM XQ1 offers a choice of 4:3, 16:9, 3:2 and 1:1 aspect ratios.

Notes

  • · Sample photos are simulated images.
  • * There must be sufficient distance between the subject and the background for this function to work properly.
  • ** Except for subjects where focus bracketing is unable to produce sufficient defocus.
