Fujifilm X-H1 Review

The arrival of the Fujifilm X-H1 is the most exciting release in the X series since the launch of the Fujifilm X-T2 in 2016. It slots into the lineup as the flagship model, above the X-T2 and X-Pro2, with a comprehensive spec for both serious photographers and videographers.
It presents a number of firsts on an X-series camera. It is Fujifilm’s first mirrorless camera with in-body image stabilization (IBIS). It is the first top-end X-series model to feature a touchscreen.
It’s based on the same 24MP sensor as the X-T2 but adds in-body image stabilization as well as a more comprehensive set of video options.

Key specifications

  • 24MP X-Trans APS-C sensor
  • 5-axis in-body image stabilization (rated at 5EV)*

Other new features on the Fuji XH1 include a flicker reduction mode, a la Canon, a more robust and durable body, a 1.28-inch monochrome LCD screen on the top of the camera, the quietest shutter sound of all cameras in the X series, a shock-free shutter release, new GFX-like handgrip. On the video side, there’s a new Eterna film simulation which emulates cinematic film, a DCI 4K shooting mode (4096×2160), a high bit rate of 200 Mbps, F-log (8-bit) SD card recording, a 1080/120P high-speed mode, a new higher quality built-in microphone (24bit/48khz) and timecode support. The Fujifilm X-H1 represents another step forward in the evolution of the popular X series of mirrorless cameras. It isn’t a dedicated video camera like the Panasonic GH5s or a dedicated sports camera like the Sony A9. But a more well-rounded proposition that’s the most well-specced, professional-feeling X-series camera to date.
The X-H1 will be available from March 1st at an MSRP of $1899 body only and $2199 bundled with the VPB-XH1 vertical grip.
