Until recent years, Fuji’s mirrorless offerings were always seen as incredible tools for photographers, but left a bit to be desired in the filmmaking department. Their cameras – like the X100T, the first Fuji I ever owned – offered incredible color science, gorgeous film simulation modes, a beautiful design, and stunning still image quality… But just didn’t have the video functionality needed to compete with Canon, Panasonic, or Sony.

Video always seemed to be a bit of an afterthought for Fuji, and while many of their cameras could in fact record 1080p video files, they didn’t do so particularly well. Or at least that’s how it was for a while.

Eventually, Fuji decided to step up to the plate (video-wise), and have since put out cameras like the X-T1, X-T2,and X-Pro2, each of which are clearly designed with the filmmaker in mind.

That said, these cameras – which are hybrids in many respects – lean more toward stills than video. They are capable of producing gorgeous video footage, but nonetheless they still feel like they are designed with the photographer in mind first. That isn’t necessarily a deal breaker for many filmmakers (myself included) as these cameras can outperform many from Sony and Panasonic in critical areas, namely color science. But at the same time there is no denying that they just didn’t have as many professional bells and whistles… Until now.

Enter the Fuji X-H1….
