On February 15, 2018, Fujifilm announced the X-H1; a brand-new “Hybrid” still/video camera which is without a doubt the most versatile of all X-series cameras. 

I didn’t have the time to do a full First look review on the day of the announcement, as I was away on a Street/Travel photography trip to Varanasi, India.

Because, I don’t call myself a videographer, I will only look at the X-H1 as a still photographer. 
One of the questions, I received the most since the announcement is, “Will you replace your X-T2 with an X-H1?”. In this post I’ll try to answer that question by looking at some of the main differences between both cameras. Lets start with the one that has caused the biggest buzz…
