The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company’s top-of-the-line APS-C camera as well as the camera with the most advanced video capabilities to date. It has the same 24 megapixel sensor as the X-T2, but it also has in-body image stabilization and a more extensive range of video settings. The X-T3 is a successor to the X-T2.
The GFX 50S’s slanted viewfinder “prism” and top-panel LCD may be seen in the design of the Fujifilm X-H1, which gives the impression that the X-H1 is a fractionally bigger version of the X-T2. Fujifilm has obviously been paying attention to feedback on the X-T series, as seen by the fact that the company has dramatically enlarged the size of the camera’s grip and buttons, in particular the AE-L and the recently introduced AF-On buttons.

The manufacturer claims that it has made more enhancements to its AF technology, and that the new camera will be able to focus in lower light and with narrower apertures than its predecessor.
The X-H1 promises significantly improved video performance, despite the fact that it is based around the same sensor and processor as the X-T2, despite the fact that the range of shooting options has been extended to include DCI as well as UHD 4K shooting, bitrates of up to 200 Mbps, and the ability to record F-Log footage internally.
The ‘Eterna’ Film Simulation and an anti-flicker option have also been included as new features. Both of these improvements are intended for use while filming in artificial lighting.
It is interesting to note that although though the stabilization is rated at 5EV, Fujifilm claims that it may reach 5.5EV of efficacy when combined with non-IS lenses. The fact that unstabilized lenses are typically primes and typically have rather wide focal lengths explains why this is the case. Because of these two factors, unstabilized lenses are more likely to project an image circle that is bigger than what is required by the sensor. This provides the sensor with additional space to move about in, which results in increased stability.
The X-T2 has already established itself as a highly competent video performer, since it is capable of capturing high levels of information and providing Log output through HDMI if it is required. The X-H1 goes much further in this direction. In addition to being able to shoot in UHD 4K at frame rates of up to 30p, it is also capable of shooting in the DCI 4K format, which has a larger aspect ratio, at frame rates of 23.98 and 24p. It is also capable of capturing F-Log footage internally and has enhanced compression settings that enable for capture rates of up to 200 Mbps.
When recording UHD and DCI 4K video, the H1 employs a section of its sensor that has a crop factor of 1.17x, just as the X-T2. This indicates that about 1.4 times more pixels are used than are required, across all dimensions, to make its Ultra High Definition film. Because of this oversampling, more levels of detail may be captured than would be feasible by merely employing an area with a resolution of 3840 by 2160. If the X-T2 is any indication, it should have a decent appearance and have a rolling shutter that is relatively well managed.
It would appear that the inclusion of the stabilizer unit accounts for the majority of the camera’s increased size; however, thermal management has also been enhanced, which enables the camera to shoot in 4K for 15 minutes, as opposed to the 10 minutes that the X-T2 is capable of. On the other hand, similar to the X-T2, there is an optional battery handle that enables the camera to switch between taking power from each of the three batteries. Since this stretches the camera’s 4K shooting length out to the typical 29 minutes and 59 seconds, which is permitted by import duty requirements, it is likely that this prevents an excessive amount of heat from building up in the same spot.

The X-H1 is a camera that is capable of adapting to a broad variety of shooting settings, and it has exceptional picture quality, extremely good video performance, and reliable focusing performance. One of the most notable aspects of the camera’s JPEGs and movie footage is, as is customary, the quality of its color reproduction. Our one genuine issue is that the camera does not stand out in any way, which is especially problematic given the level of competition that is available at this price point.
