Fine-tune image quality with “COLOR” for color saturation adjustment, “HIGHLIGHT TONE” and “SHADOW TONE” for tweaking contrast in highlights and shadows, and “SHARPNESS” to stress or soften image outlines. With this built-in detailed image quality control, you can produce an image that precisely matches your creative objectives.
Choose from 5 different levels of noise reduction depending on whether your priority is the crispness of resolution or keeping noise reduction to a minimum, and explore the capability to tune sensitivity-related textural quality when shooting high-sensitivity scenes.
Go to the Shooting Menu to choose the right Focusing Mode for the scene (Manual, Auto Area, Area Selection AF, Continuous AF, Auto Tracking AF).
Within the 49-point matrix of the auto focus area on the screen, AF accurately and swiftly recognizes the primary subject and brings it into crystal clear focus. It also lets you freely select the position of the AF frame. Using the LCD monitor, you also can change the AF frame size and pinpoint the focusing.
When manually adjusting focus, this function highlights high contrast areas of your subject for smoother and more precise fine tuning of focusing.
Empowering you with a choice of 4 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation), the FUJIFILM XQ1 lets you experience the wide world of photographic expression.
Capture 3 exposures of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% & 400%).
Just release the shutter once and produce 3 images of the scene based on a single exposure, each image with a different Film Simulation effect that you have freely selected and pre-set.
One press of the shutter captures 3 shots of the same scene at different exposures. AE bracketing can be set in 1/3, 2/3 or 1 EV steps.
Based on a single exposure, the scene is automatically reproduced as 3 images, each with a different ISO sensitivity and without changing the shutter speed and aperture, letting you capture the moment with varying degrees of brightness. Setting is possible in 1/3, 2/3 or 1 EV steps.
Select from the broad sensitivity range of ISO100 - 12800 for shooting at a full 12-megapixel resolution. The FUJIFILM XQ1 also lets you set the AUTO ISO range (up to ISO 400 - 3200) and the shutter speed limit. For quick access to ISO settings, you can assign this function to the control ring.
Compensate for the color of different light sources with a choice of 9 white balance presets in addition to Auto White Balance.
Fine tune white balance by adjusting R (red) ⇔ Cy (cyan) and B (blue) ⇔ Ye (yellow) in ±9 steps. You can make adjustments and confirm their effect on the actual image during shooting. With this powerful setting, you can adjust individual white balance parameters, tweak settings for the more accurate correction of white balance or explore the creative effects that can be achieved with filters.
The FUJIFILM XQ1's built-in RAW data converter lets you view and edit your results without the need for your PC. The conversion of RAW data not only takes into account exposure compensation, white balance and other in-camera image quality control settings, but also lets the user apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.
For the management, viewing and conversion of RAW image data on your PC, you will find a special FUJIFILM XQ1 version of the powerful and easy-to-use RAW conversion software powered by SILKYPIX® included in your camera box.
Up to 100 pictures can be viewed at a time in a 10x10 array of micro thumbnails. Convenient for smooth and comfortable playback.
Use the menu to select the Self Timer function. It is not only great for group photos, but also comes in handy in macro photography and low exposure shots when you want to avoid blur caused by manual shutter release.
The fine textured, high quality, real leather case houses the camera perfectly. Available in Black and in Brown you can contrast the case with your camera. It also comes with a cloth case for storage purposes.
Waterproof case for photography at up to 40m under water. The control ring, a key feature of the FUJIFILM XQ1, can be fully operated when using this waterproof housing.
