Fujifilm X-H1 Summary
Fujifilm X-H1 Assessment
The Fujifilm X-H1 pairs a 24 megapixels X-Trans CMOS III sensor with a revised X-Processor Pro. It produces high-quality images with excellent image-noise, sharpness, wide dynamic-range and white-balance. Metering is exceptional, in part due to such a wide dynamic-range, while detail and color rendition are really good.
This 1.5X APS-C sensor features a hybrid 325-Point Phase-Detect and Contrast-Detect AF system with improved sensitivity. This lets the X-H1 focus very quickly in good light but really slows down in low-light and occasionally misses focus. The Continuous AF system is top-notch though in its ability to track subjects even using the high-speed drive of the X-H1.
Fujifilm revamped the body into a more substantial camera. This makes plenty of features very accessible yet has its share or quirks and is prone to accidental changes. The new shutter-release makes the camera a little too trigger-happy.
This mirrorless digital camera truly packs an impressive feature set. While offering nearly every photographic feature, it truly stands out for its complete video functionality. The X-H1 can really do just about anything and the added 5-axis stabilization system makes it highly-capable in low-light.
