15 Feb Fujifilm X-H1 vs X-T2: 8 key differences you need to know

Source: Tech Radar

Fujifilm’s just taken the wraps of its new X-H1, its new flagship X Series camera. Question is though, how does it compare to the fabulous X-T2, a camera that the X-H1 sits above in the range.

Both share the same 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor, so which camera’s the one for you? Let’s take a look at some of the key differences.

X-H1 vs X-T2: In-body image stabilization

While the X-T2 relies on specific lenses for image stabilization (those designated OIS), the X-H1 for the first time in a X Series camera features in-body image stabilization, that promises to offer up to an impressive 5.5-stop compensation.

X-H1 vs X-T2: Viewfinder and rear screen

The X-T2’s electronic viewfinder impressed when we tested it, but the X-H1 is that bit better. While both are the same size at 0.5-inches roughly, the X-H1’s resolution of 3.69-million dots is an improvement over the X-T2’s already impressive 2.36-million dots.

Interestingly, the 0.75x magnification offered on the X-H1 is a slight regression on the X-T2’s 0.77x magnification, but both have a display lag time of just 0.005 seconds and a refresh rate of 100fps. The minor difference here is that the X-T2 achieves this frame rate in a Boost mode (and requires the VPB-XT2 battery grip), and would otherwise by running at 60fps.

Both sport a 3.0-inch, 1.04-million dot rear display with a clever three-directional tilting mechanism, but the X-H1 has the advantage of a touchscreen interface.
