Advanced Point-and-Shoots: Fujifilm XQ1

Best for All-Around Use

The XQ1 is a fully pocketable 7.3-oz compact whose only real trick is capturing incredible photos. It focuses faster than any camera in its class (0.06 seconds), and its shots are more detailed than its 12-megapixel count might suggest, thanks to a sophisticated sensor normally found in larger Fuji cams.
