The Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera, with a newly-designed robust and durable body, incorporates a range of extremely useful features that support shooting in various scenarios demanded by professional photographers and videographers. The Fujifilm X-H1 is the first X Series model to include the latest 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), which compensates for camera shake up to a maximum of 5.5 stops. The new flicker reduction mode enhances the quality of indoor sports photography by removing artefacts created by artificial lighting.
The first internal in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) system to feature in an X Series camera, harnesses three-axial accelerometers, three-axial Gyro sensors, and a specially developed dual-processor. Combined, this achieves the high speed of approximately 10,000 calculations per second. When unified with compensating mechanisms, results in uncompromising image quality and precision with performance as described below. 5-axis image stabilisation is possible with all XF and XC lenses. Up to a maximum of 5.5 stops image stabilisation is possible when the camera is used with all XF lenses that do not include optical image stabilisation technology.
Technological breakthroughs have been developed to support this high precision stabilisation performance. A laser measurement device is used during the process of manufacturing the image stabilisation unit, controlling component flatness and position with twice the precision of standard components. The assembly process also includes inspection and adjustment of each individual camera to ensure that when image stabilisation is used, the parallel position of the sensor is achieved with micro-order accuracy equivalent to previous models. In addition, a new spring mechanism has been included to reduce micro-vibrations caused by operation of the mechanical shutter. The photographer may also choose to use the electronic front curtain shutter or the electronic shutter, virtually eliminating the effect of vibrations to maximise the benefits of image stabilisation.
The Fujifilm X-H1 uses the legendary APS-C sized X-Trans™ CMOS III sensor with a high 24.30-megapixel resolution and no low-pass filter, optimising sharpness even further. The high-speed X-Processor Pro image processing engine renders accurate colour and ultra-high dynamic range at blazing speeds enabling continuous shooting of up to 14 frames per second. This proprietary Fujifilm technology was first seen in the X-Pro2 and then X-T2 cameras, receiving many awards globally. When used in combination with any of the extremely high-quality Fujinon lenses, the X-H1 produces outstanding, unrivalled quality images recording the finest details of the subject - its texture, three-dimensional structure and even the atmosphere and vibe of a particular scene.
In addition to the camera's dust-resistant, water-resistant properties, and the ability to operate in temperatures down to -10°C, the camera also features a 25% thicker magnesium alloy in the body construction compared to the X-T2. Fujifilm has also modified the structure for attaching the mount, resulting in a more compact size and lighter weight body that maintains high precision and strong resistance to impact, shock, torsion and other sources of deformation.
Increased particle size on the camera's external surface provides a high-quality scratch-resistant coating with a surface hardness equivalent to 8H.
The viewfinder is a high-magnification, high-precision electronic viewfinder. The 0.75x magnification ratio and 3.69 megapixel resolution leads the class for mirrorless cameras. The viewfinder display is extraordinarily smooth, with a display time lag of just 0.005 seconds and a frame rate of 100 frames per second, allowing the photographer to instantly confirm the movement of the subject and position of the focus with great precision.
The rear LCD monitor is a 3-direction tilt, 3-inch, 1.04 million dot electrostatic touch-panel LCD which can be intuitively set to the desired angle. In addition, the 1.28 inch sub-LCD on the top of the camera, a current feature of the medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S, allows for instant confirmation of shooting information.
The camera uses a large-grip design with a new, optimised shape and a leaf-spring switch for the shutter-release button to achieve a stable feel when holding the camera and easy operation of the shutter-release button to ensure no opportunities are missed.
The camera has the quietest shutter sound of all cameras in the X Series, making it an ideal tool for environments where quietness is required such as when shooting animals in the wild, quiet performances or at weddings.
A new AF-ON button has been added to the back of the camera. This makes it easier to operate the autofocus with the thumb, allowing the photographer to focus on using their index finger to operate the shutter-release button. In addition, other modifications have been made to improve operability, including the enlargement of the buttons on the rear of the camera and improvements to the grip of the front and rear command dials.
The Fujifilm X-H1 also features focus lever that facilitates rapid, accurate movement to the desired focus point.
The Fujifilm X-H1 is the first camera in the X Series to include ETERNA, a new film simulation ideal for shooting movies. This mode simulates cinematic film, creating understated colours and rich shadow tones, greatly enhancing creative freedom during post-processing. The camera's video image quality has been improved through the new ability to record a high bit rate of 200 Mbps. The camera includes a total of 20 functional and performance improvements including the 1080/120P high-speed video mode (1/2, 1/4 and 1/5 speed slow motion) for recording spectacular slow-motion footage, F-log SD card recording which aids smooth workflow, a DCI 4K shooting mode (4096×2160), a 400% dynamic range setting (approximately 12 stops), 200 Mbps high bit rate recording, a high-quality internal microphone (24 bit/48 kHz) and verbal time codes.
Flicker reduction modes are essential for indoor sport photography, and the Fujifilm X-H1 achieves this using the inherent advantages of a mirrorless camera, allowing for stable exposure during burst shots even under fluorescent and mercury lighting.
Improvements to the AF algorithm have achieved the following performance enhancements:
Dust-resistant and water-resistant and operates at temperatures of down to -10°C. Two batteries may be attached, with a third battery in the body of the camera increasing the maximum number of available shots in normal mode to approximately 900. In boost mode, multiple batteries can be used simultaneously, improving performance for burst shots and reducing the interval between shots, shutter time lag, and the blackout period.
In addition, the VPB-XH1 also increases the maximum period for shooting movies in 4K to about 30 minutes, making the VPB-XH1 an essential accessory for maximising the performance of the X-H1.
Controls include the shutter-release button, focus lever, AE-L button, AF-ON button, command dial, Q button, and Fn button, providing the same easy operation when using the camera in both the vertical and horizontal positions.
The VPB-XH1 is equipped with a headphone socket, allowing the operator to monitor sound while recording video.
The grip also includes recharging capability. The included AC adapter (AC-9VS) can be used to recharge two batteries simultaneously over approximately 2 hours.
