Fujifilm has announced the X-H1, its new flagship X Series mirrorless camera that sits above both the X-T2 and X-Pro2.

Aimed at professional photographers and videographers, the X-H1 is the first X Series camera to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS for short).

Together with a specially developed dual-processor, the new 5-axis IBIS provides up to a maximum of 5.5 stops of image stabilization when used with all XF lenses that don’t include optical image stabilization (OIS) technology.

Fujifilm has also refined the way in which the image stabilization system is manufactured. A laser measurement device is used to control component flatness and position with twice the precision of standard components, while a new spring mechanism has been included to reduce micro-vibrations caused by operation of the mechanical shutter.

The X-H1 may have a new IS system, but Fujifilm has stuck with the 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor that’s impressed in many recent Fujifilm cameras including the X-T2 and X100F.

Ready for anything

The X-H1 is both dust and water-resistant, and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. It’s similar to the X-T2 in those respects, but to underline its pro credentials the X-H1 also uses a 25% thicker magnesium alloy compared to the X-T2.

Fujifilm has also revealed that it’s modified the structure for attaching the lens mount, resulting in a more compact size and lighter weight body than if it had stuck to the previous design, while the X-H1 also sports a high-quality scratch-resistant coating.
