QUICKFACT SHEETT here is a new flagship camera in Fujifilm’s mirrorless line-up: the X-H1. Think of an improved X-T2 still camera, plus cinematic 4K video features. The body is heavier and larger with a deeper grip, and the mount has been reinforced to accept heavy telephoto lenses. It is weather-proof.
Though it retains the same 24.3-MP CMOS APS-C sensor as in the X-T2 (with combined Contrast Detect and Phase Detect), the Fujifilm X-H1 improves with faster and more sensitive AF. While the X-T2 could focus down to 0.5EV light level, the X-H1 goes down to -1EV. And unlike the X-T2, the X-H1 keeps focusing even while zooming.
It also keeps the same 1.04M-dot articulating LCD as in the X-T2, but it is now touch sensitive, allowing quick AF selection as well as more intuitive image review and zoom. The Silent Video Operation function allows you to control settings such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and white balance with silent touch-panel operations on the rear monitor, preventing the camera from picking up operation noise from buttons and dials during video recording. The EVF ups the resolution to 3.69M-dot but loses a bit of magnification (0.75x compared to 0.77x of the X-T2), but still rates as one of the larger viewfinder.
Thanks to a heat sink in the larger body, you can now record up to 15 mins of 4K video at a maximum bitrate of 200Mbps. A new Film Simulation (Eterna) simulates the output of cinematographic films. Eterna is characterized by subdued color presentations and rich shadow tones, and can be used at 400% Dynamic Range (equivalent to approximately 12 stops) to attain video recording with a high degree of perfection while substantially reducing color-grading workload in post processing. A premium sound microphone (24bit / 48KHz) is built in for recording high-resolution quality sound.
Those who come from cinema video shooting will appreciate the introduction of the FUJINON MKX18-55mmT2.9 and MKX 50-135mmT2.9 ultra-compact cinema lenses. Attached to the X-H1, you can see your aperture as T-stops instead of as F-stops and use shutter speeds of 1/24 sec, 1/48 sec, 1/96 sec, etc. when shooting video at 24p.
A new shutter shock absorption mechanism means less vibration generated in-body as well as quieter shutter noise. The shutter release is redesigned with a leaf-spring switch for feather-touch responsiveness.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 has the Flickering Reduction function for controlling exposure and color instability caused by flickering of AC-powered fluorescent lights. The function detects light flicker rate and automatically controls shutter timing to coincide with peak brightness, thereby achieving exposure stability in indoor sports photography (except when using the electronic shutter).
Tether shooting is possible, with the camera tethered to the computer either by cable or wirelessly (download the FUJIFILM X Acquire tethering software at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/application/). You can select file types for saving onto the memory card in the camera, and for transferring and saving onto the computer either in RAW or JPEG format.
