There's a new camera at the top of the Fujifilm X Series totem pole, the X-H1. The brand-new camera may sport some familiar components, such as the 24.3-megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro at the heart of its imaging pipeline, but it features many new and exciting features. Perhaps the biggest inclusion is in-body image stabilization (IBIS). The X-H1 is the first Fujifilm X Series model to include IBIS, which works together with Fuji lenses' optical image stabilization, delivering up to 5.5 stops of stabilization. Further, the 5-axis hybrid I.S. system is compatible with all XF and XC lenses.
The body has also been designed with feedback from pros taken into account. The grip is larger, the shutter release features a new mechanism and there's a top e-ink display that shows important shooting settings and information like the GFX. The body is also more rugged than the X-T2 thanks to 25 percent thicker magnesium alloy and a new scratch-resistant coating on the body itself. Plus, there's a new high-resolution electronic viewfinder, which matches the resolution of the excellent electronic viewfinder in the medium format GFX 50S.
The X-H1 is aimed not only at stills shooters, but videographers as well. It can record DCI 4K video at up to 24 frames per second, 4K UHD at 30 fps and includes 200 Mbps bitrate recording and internal F-log recording.
There is a lot more to learn about the Fujifilm X-H1 in our Fujifilm X-H1 Preview. We will also be going hands-on with the camera later today (February 15, 2018, if you're joining us late), so stay tuned to Imaging Resource for much more on the exciting new X Series flagship camera!
