The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company’s most curious camera yet.
When the rumors of the Fujifilm X-H1 were circulating, it seemed as if all were good, at least on paper. The Fujifilm X-H1 is being billed as the flagship X series camera and addresses a number of concerns photographers and users have had for a while. It has 4K video at a number of frame rates and with high quality options including F log and 200MB/second. Then there have been enhancements to the autofocus, weather sealing enhancements, and some ergonomics changes to make the camera more like a DSLR without a mirror and pentaprism. At the heart, it’s using the same 24MP APS-C sensor many of Fuji’s other cameras use. And in truth, the Fujifilm X-H1 is a really excellent camera. But at the same time, this is hands down the camera with the worst ergonomics I’ve ever felt from Fujifilm.
The Fujifilm X-H1 is being billed as designed for the professional. But the Fujifilm X Pro 2, Fujifilm X-T2 and Fujifilm GFX 50s already did that. I know a bunch of photographers who carry these around as their everyday workhorses. It’s about on par with pricing with the Nikon D500 and offers a lot of the same functionality and quality.
