Feature 5Broaden your range of shooting with the FUJIFILM XQ2

Advanced Filters add unique creative effects

The FUJIFILM XQ2 features 8 filter effects to create artistic images easily, including "Miniature," which adds top and bottom blur for a cute diorama finish, "Toy Camera," which adds a vignette for a retro look, and "Pop Color," which boosts contrast and saturation. For a real-time preview of these functions, you can check the effect on the LCD monitor while shooting.

Miniature

Adds top and bottom blur for a diorama or miniature effect.

Partial Color (Red / Orange / Yellow / Green / Blue / Purple)

Retain one selected original color and change the rest of the photo to black and white.

Toy Camera

Adds shaded borders to create the effect of a photo being taken by a toy camera.

Dynamic Tone

Create a fantasy effect with dynamically-modulated tonal reproduction.

High Key

Enhance brightness and reduce contrast to lighten tonal reproduction.

Low Key

Create uniformly dark tones with emphasized highlights.

Soft Focus

Create a look that is evenly soft throughout the whole image.

Pop Color

Emphasizes contrast and color saturation.

Full HD Movie with Film Simulation Modes

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 recognize 6 types of scene and optimize 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 and 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.

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 precisely position and focus the second shot, and 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 Functions 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 and low-noise exposures, then combines them into an image with less noise than the single exposures.

Image Quality Control

Color, Tone and Sharpness Adjustment

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.

Noise Reduction Control

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.

Focusing

Focusing Mode Selection

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).

Selectable AF with a 49-point Metering matrix

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.

Focus Peak Highlight function for sharper manual focusing.

When manually adjusting focus, this function highlights high contrast areas of your subject for smoother and more precise fine tuning of focusing.

Powerful Built-in Auto Bracketing Functions

Empowering you with a choice of 4 different auto bracketing functions (AE, ISO Sensitivity, Dynamic Range and Film Simulation), the FUJIFILM XQ2 lets you experience the wide world of photographic expression.

Dynamic Range Bracketing

Capture 3 exposures of the same scene with high-speed continuous shooting, each at a different dynamic range setting (100%, 200% and 400%).

  • 100%

Film Simulation Bracketing

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.

AE Bracketing

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.

ISO Sensitivity Bracketing

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.

ISO Sensitivity

ISO100 - 12800 Sensitivity setting range

Select from the broad sensitivity range of ISO100 - 12800 for shooting at a full 12-megapixel resolution. The FUJIFILM XQ2 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.

Flash

Super Intelligent Flash for natural looking flash photography

The FUJIFILM XQ2's Super Intelligent Flash technology automatically adjusts the amount of flash output according to the specific scene or subject, lighting portraits in low light or backlit conditions, preventing highlight or shadow clipping in macro photography, and reproducing natural tones even in the background.

White Balance Setting

Compensate for the color of different light sources with a choice of 9 white balance presets in addition to Auto White Balance.

Precise White Balance Setting

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.

RAW Shooting

In-camera RAW Converter

The FUJIFILM XQ2'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 you apply Film Simulation modes in the converter mode.

Special FUJIFILM XQ2 RAW Conversion Software Included

For the management, viewing and conversion of RAW image data on your PC, you will find a special FUJIFILM XQ2 version of the powerful and easy-to-use RAW conversion software powered by SILKYPIX® included in your camera box.

Micro Thumbnail View

Up to 100 pictures can be viewed at a time in a 10x10 array of micro thumbnails. Convenient for smooth and comfortable playback.

Self Timer (2 or 10 seconds)

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.

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.
