Fujifilm Adds X-H1 Camera in its X Series Lineup

Fujifilm Adds X-H1 Camera in its X Series Lineup

This is the company's first mirrorless camera in the X series line to get in-body image stabilisation (5-axis), a new flicker reduction mode to help when shooting under fluorescent lighting and DCI 4K video shooting capability.

Fujifilm adds X-H1 camera in its X series lineup. We've provided some Fujifilm RAW (CR2) samples for you to download (thumbnail images shown below are not 100% representative).

At the same time as Fuji is launching this camera, it's also introducing new ultra-compact cinema lenses designed for shooting video on X Series bodies, including an 18-55 constant T2.9 aperture lens, and a 50-135 constant T2.9 aperture offering. It's a mode that "simulates cinematic film, creating understated colors and rich shadow tones, greatly enhancing creative freedom during post-processing", Fujifilm says.

Also the lens mount is a standard Fujifilm X mount.

X-H1 has the X-Trans 24.3 APS-C CMOS III sensor of the X-T2 and X-Pro 2, as well as the X-Processor Pro image processing engine, as well as on-baord Bluetooth connectivity.

In the area of autofocusing, the X-H1 has a 325-point intelligent hybrid AF system with an improved low-light phase-detection AF limit that's 1.5 stops lower (from 0.5EV to -1.0EV), which allows for faster and more precise focusing in dark situations.

This can be attributed to a number things, but perhaps the larger viewfinder and in-body stabilization are going to drain the power of the X-H1 a little more. Micro vibrations caused by the mechanical shutter should also be reduced thanks to the addition of a spring mechanism, though photographers also have the option to use electronic shutters to all-but eliminate such vibrations. "A total of 19 modifications were included in the X-H1 based on feedback from photographers for improved operability".

On the back of the X-H1 is a 0.5-inch, 3.69-million-dot, 0.75x electronic viewfinder with a display lag of 0.005s and a frame rate of 100fps.

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. There's no performance gain if you use the electronic shutter. Its magnesium alloy body (25% thicker than in the X-T2) is dust-resistant, water-resistant, cold-resistant (down to 14°F\-10°C), scratch-resistant, and impact-resistant. It sounds like a tremendous camera with a lot of potential to rival not only all others in the X Series lineup both for still shooting and for movies, but also to maybe topple some of the leading other camera makers.

The Fujifilm X-H1 will be available starting on March 1, 2018, with a price tag of $1,900.
