06 Mar Fujifilm X-H1 Expert Review
Source: Fujifilm Insider
Introduced as Fujifilm’s flagship X series camera, the X-H1 sits above the X-T2 and features 5-axis in-camera image stabilisation, CINE/DCI 4K video recording, and a new “Eterna” film simulation for video recording. The Fujifilm X-H1 will be available from March, priced at £1699 body only, or £1949 with the optional battery grip.
The big headline feature of the X-H1 is in-camera sensor-shift image stabilisation, which Fujifilm call In-Body Image Stabilisation. IBIS moves the camera’s 24.3mp APS-C X-Trans III CMOS sensor, to give up to 5.5 stops of image stabilisation. There is a new spring mechanism to reduce vibration when using the mechanical shutter (built in shock-absorber system), and you can use an electronic front curtain shutter to reduce vibration further. The IBIS works in combination with optical image stabilisation (OIS), when this is in the lens, and will work with third-party lenses attached to an adapter. Behind the scenes, there’s a 3-axis acceleration sensor and a 3-axis gyro sensor.
On the back of the camera, there’s a new AF-ON button. AutoFocus (AF) performance has been improved, with better low-light focus, with phase detection working down to -1EV. This is said to improve focus with fine detail, and video recording as well. The minimum aperture range has been improved down to f/11 (from f/8), which means phase detection autofocus can be used when using the XF100-400mm with the 2X TC WR tele-convertor. There are 91 AF points (which can be increased to 325)…
