Essentially an update of the 2-year-old X-T2 — the body’s been refined and the feature set expanded for the cinema-shooting crowd — the X-H1 has the distinction of being Fujifilm’s first camera to incorporate sensor-shift image stabilization. It’s more than late to a party where Sony, Olympus and Panasonic have already fallen asleep on the couch. But better late than never, and its five-axis, five-stop system is certainly a welcome upgrade to one of Fujifilm’s best.
The X-H1 is slated to ship in March for $ 1,900; that’s a few hundred more than the current X-T2 prices in the US. (I don’t have UK or Australia prices, but it converts to about £1,360 and AU$ 2,400.)
Fujifilm bumped up the top video resolution from 4K UHD to DCI 4K (though at a relatively low 200Mbps) and added verbal time codes. Plus, it wouldn’t be Fujifilm without adding another film simulation: This time, it’s Eterna for a cinema filmlike look. And now you can record F-log to an internal card rather than just to an external recorder. Not quite the GH5/GH5s, but those have a smaller sensor.
