Fujifilm X-H1


The Fujifilm X-H1 camera adds in-body stabilization to the X series and offers loads of tools for both photographers and videographers.

Shoots at 8fps with mechanical shutter and 14fps with electronic shutter. 5-axis sensor stabilization. 24MP APS-C sensor. 200Mbps 4K video. Log video profile. Tilting rear LCD. Dual card slots. Monochrome information LCD. Weather-sealed body.

Expensive. Not a true vari-angle LCD. No EV dial. Add-on grip required for top performance. No built-in flash. Omits headphone jack. Video recording chews through batteries.

The Fujifilm X-H1 delivers the same class-leading image quality as the X-T2, but betters its focus system, offering stronger peformance in dim light and when shooting video. You also get Fujifilm's excellent Film Simulation modes for shooting in JPG,...

Fujifilm X-H1 Review


The Fujifilm X-H1 is a top-of-the-range 24MP mirrorless camera with in-body stabilization and the company's most advanced array of video capabilities. We've tested the X-T2's big brother extensively to see how it performs.

The addition of in-camera stabilization will make the X-H1 immediately attractive to X-system photographers, even those who aren't necessarily likely to make much use of its video features. However, slotting-in as a higher-end model above the X-T2 puts...

With the X-H1, Fujifilm at long last adds in-body IS


In its new flagship APS-C model, Fujifilm's the last of the mainstream mirrorless camera makers to drift from optical stabilization to sensor shift.

Fujifilm X-H1 Review


While the new Fujifilm X-H1 is the best-specced, best-performing X-series camera to date, curiously we feel that it doesn't quite have the widest appeal, both within the Fujifilm eco-system and the camera market as a whole.

Fujifilm X-H1


The Fujifilm X-H1 is the most advanced X-series mirrorless camera to date with in-body image stabilisation, touchscreen control and pro-spec build quality

Benefits from In Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) ; Introduces Flicker Reduction mode ; Supports excellent power booster grip (VPB-XH1) ; Improved electronic viewfinder (OVF/EVF)

Camera battery can’t be charged via booster ; Small AF-ON AE-L buttons on VPB-XH1 ; Doesn’t feature 4:2:2 10-bit video ; No USB-Type C interface

The X-H1 is a highly impressive performer in the evolving Fujifilm X-series and is a more than capable alternative to many of today’s heavier and bulkier professional DSLRs.

Fujifilm X-H1 review: Does the most advanced X-series live up to its potential?


Fujifilm has created a worthy top-tier entry to its mirrorless X-series line-up with robustness, great image stabilisation and image quality. However,

Excellent image stabilisation (although it's lens dependent for the best performance) ; Great image quality and detail potential (lens dependent) ; Robust build quality with full manual controls at your fingertips ; LCD top plate is a rare sighting on...

Smallest autofocus size has issues acquiring focus ; Auto white balance and auto exposure sometimes off the mark ; No 3.5mm headphone jack without the battery grip ; Battery life should go further ; No image quality improvement over X-T2 ; Panasonic G9...

Fujifilm X-H1 review


In-body stabilisation lifts the X-Series to new heights

Image stabilisation works wonders ; Superb stills ; Video now among the best

Bigger body won't please everyone ; Trigger-happy shutter button ; Pricey

By adding in-body image stabilisation, Fuji's created its best CSC yet

Fujifilm X-H1 review


Does bigger mean better?

In-body image stabilization ; Brilliant viewfinder ; Touchscreen control ; DCI 4K video ; Dedicated AF-On button

Fiddly exposure compensation control ; Performance hasn't moved on from X-T2 ; Larger design won't appeal to everyone ; Battery performance could be better

There's no question that the Fujifilm X-H1 is the most advanced X Series camera to date, thanks to a range of new and refined features, but its size means it loses some of that core X Series DNA that has made cameras like the X-T2 firm favorites. It's...
