Fujifilm has updated its high-end pocket camera lineup today, with the help of the Fujifilm XQ2. A successor to the XQ1, the XQ2 receives a very modest update in the form of new color options and an additional film emulation preset. 

Specifically, the XQ2 now comes in three separate colors: all-black, all-white and a very retro-looking black and silver model (pictured below). It's worth pointing out that the aesthetic of the latter of these models follows in the footsteps of many other cameras Fuji has put on the market as of late.

As for the additional film emulation mode, we're referring to the inclusion of Fuji's 'Classic Chrome' setting. This is designed to bring back the highly saturated and contrasted aesthetic from slide images of the analog days.

The changes might be small, but the good news is they're also lowering the price. List price for the Fuji XQ2 is $399.95, $100 less than the XQ1.
