03 Jun My first outing with the Fuji X-H1

A few weeks ago I finally bit the bullet and traded in my Fuji X-T2 for the new Fuji X-H1. I had mixed feeling about this because the X-T2 was one of my favorite cameras of all time, and I wasn’t sure I wouldn’t be losing some of my favorite features. My reason for the swap was that I wanted to move more into shooting film, and the X-H1 seemed like it would be my best bet for the same reason that its sibling, the X-T2 had endeared itself to me as a camera for shooting stills.

I had fooled around with the X-H1 around the house, trying to familiarize myself with some of the video capabilities. One thing I noticed right away was how good the IBIS was for steadying the camera during filming. In most situation I didn’t even need to use my gimbel. Right away I knew that this was going to be a game changer for me. I could make impromptu changes from shooting stills to shooting video with nothing more than the turn of a selector dial on the camera.

Yesterday,  I decided to take the X-H1 on an exploring mission to the Green Cay Wetlands Nature Preserve. My timing wasn’t the best because I arrived there around noon, but this was just a test mission and I knew that to switching to primarily black and white photography I would still be able to capture some dramatic landscapes with the thunder clouds in the sky…
