Probably The Most Powerful Compact Camera In The Market Today

Fujifilm unveils its latest compact camera for their premium X Series, the XQ2. With almost all of the latest camera technologies being incorporated into one, Fujifilm XQ2 is so far one of the most powerful compact cameras today. But before digging more on this latest gadget, let us bring back ourselves of what has transpired several months back.

If you all remember, Fujifilm previously released an equally powerful compact camera, the elder sibling of XQ2 which is the X100T.

This 16.3 megapixel sensor camera with a specially crafted 23mm F2 lens, can be best remembered of its real-time Parallax Correction which every photographer needs in search of precise and quality pictures. It also features the world’s first Electronic Rangefinder, which delivers unsurpassed image quality through its advanced color reproduction technology, and its unique ‘Classic Chrome’ film simulation mode.

As the 3rd generation of the X series, it also brings more added features like the reduced display time lag, automatic brightness control, and enhanced Live View settings. These have been added to the electronic viewfinder which provide a more comfortable shooting experience.

It is also the world’s first camera that can shoot videos using the optical viewfinder, resembling the shooting experience of a film camera. And to mention the wifi connectivity that reduces time and effort when transferring files to laptops or any other wifi enabled  devices.
