…it’s my Fujifilm X-H1 review

With apologies to all of you who would rather not be reminded of the Holies’ 1969 hit, the road is long, with many a winding turn. Which is how I am feeling about the new, Fujifilm X-H1.

Bigger and better

I recently opted to upgrade one of my two work camera bodies to the new X-H1, retiring my beloved X-Pro2 to the personal photography bag (more on this later). Before I made the X-H1 purchase, I spoke with fellow X-photographer Joe Ng about the new camera and got some really helpful advice. Perhaps the best bit of advice that Joe gave me regarded the X-H1 and the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens. This is the lens that will be on the camera 90% of the time and I wanted to know if the IBIS made any difference for shooting with the 16-55. To paraphrase Joe, IBIS makes it a completely different lens (in a good way). That’s primarily what I was looking for with this new camera, to give me a stabilized 16-55 f/2.8 lens.

I was also looking for a larger body that balances better with my two primary work lenses, the 16-55 and the XF50-140mm f/2.8. Both are big lenses that can use a larger body. The more robust hand grip on the X-H1 also works much better for my hands. Of course, I was also looking forward to the best AF and continuous shooting experience available in the Fuji X-camera lineup. So far…
