In my first Field Test for the new Fujifilm X-H1, I looked at the camera's revised design and its familiar image sensor. In the newly-published Field Test Part II, the focus shifts toward the X-H1's shooting experience, autofocus and overall performance for stills.

The camera may utilize the same image sensor and processor as the X-T2, but the X-H1 has some tricks up its sleeve, including new in-body image stabilization, a first for a Fujifilm X Series camera. Further, its autofocus system, while still featuring the same general technology and number of AF points, has been revised with improved performance in low light and with respect to continuous focusing accuracy and speed. The improvements proved to pay dividends, especially when photographing small, fast-moving birds with the X-H1.

To learn more about my experience with the Fujifilm X-H1, head over to the new Field Test. You can look forward to Part III in the coming weeks, which will be centered around the camera's video performance.
