  • The Fujifilm XQ2 is a pocket-friendly camera that is capable of capturing excellent images.


  • Calling the Fujifilm XQ2 a modest upgrade is something of an understatement - it's identical to the original XQ1 camera, except for a faster image proccesor, new Classic Chrome film simulation, new white colour-way, and a slightly lower official price on launch. In all other respects, it's impossible to tell the two cameras apart, which is disappointing given the 18-month gap between them, and ultimately means that Fujifilm's premium compact camera has fallen some way behind the fast-moving competition.


  • A thoroughly enjoyable camera to use. It does everything pretty well but falls short of challenging the very best in its class – a 1-inch sensor, better lens and a tilting touch-screen would potentially make the difference.


  • The new XQ1 is clearly designed to take on the all-conquering Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 (our Compact Camera of the Year in 2012) and the popular Canon PowerShot S-series. It essentially offers image quality somewhere between the two at a very attractive price that is lower than both, whilst offering the same appealing retro design and great build quality that epitomises the X-series camera range. Built-in wi-fi connectivity, intuitive handling and speedy performance form the icing on what is already a very rich cake.


  • If you crave a compact megazoom that gives you a lot of control over your results, look no further than the Fujifilm FinePix F900EXR.


  • There's no doubt that the Fuji F900 EXR is a highly competent camera and a great travel companion with its excellent zoom lens, autofocus performance and decent image quality.


  • The F900EXR still isn't quite the champion of its kind, but through the series' progressive ironing-out of bugs and shortcomings we feel it's a whisker ahead of its F800EXR predecessor. In short: it's a decent compact with plenty of quirks - some good, some bad - that amounts to a generally decent snapper.


  • Of all of the tough cams we've seen this year, the XP200 was the least desirable. Even though it rings in at under $300, you're a stone's throw (roughly $75) away from the best all-round tough cam, the Olympus TG-2. Your $75 nets you much better image quality, great autofocus, a fast f/2.0 lens, and even options for adding filters and a tele or fisheye converter lens. It's a great package and it takes good photos for a point-and-shoot and excellent photos for a tough cam.


  • Why not just use your phone? There are waterproof ones after all. Well, it all boils down to image quality. If you're going on a journey of a lifetime, a camera phone won't give you the image quality you need in all photographic situations. The flash won't be as intelligent and the dynamic range will be much more limited. For those reasons alone, you should look at a camera like the Fujifilm FinePix XP200.


  • The Fujifilm FinePix XP200 is very tough, with a rating of 2 metres shock proof, as well as waterproof down to 15 metres, making it one of the tougher waterproof cameras available. The Fujifilm FinePix XP200 is good value for money, with lots of features including 60fps full HD video with optical image stabilisation, although we would have preferred to see better image quality from the camera.


  • The Fujifilm XF1 offers a similar retro feel, solid build and excellent image quality as its bigger X-series relatives at a cheaper price, but some of the features are less well-realised with style often winning out over substance.


  • The XF1 enters a competitive field in the form of the enthusiast compact market, where it primarily distinguishes itself from its peers through its smart, retro design. The camera's leather and matte aluminium finish, along with the manual zoom operation make the XF1 a pleasing camera to hold and use. Retract the lens fully and the camera can also be easily pocketed. Despite these obvious pluses, the XG1 is not without its faults.


  • We have handfuls of love for the XF1 thanks to its decent image quality, collapsible manual zoom lens, competitive price and retro, pocketable design. But that's met with a few pinches of disappointment too: the maximum f/4.9 aperture at the full extent of the zoom, lack of optional viewfinder, ongoing "white orb" issues due to the sensor and that not-so-nice faux-leather finish. It's close, but the cigar's not quite met the lips of this otherwise good-looking and decent-performing high-end compact.
