Fujifilm has announced the X-H1, a new addition to the X-series line of mirrorless cameras. It features a movie-centric feature-set and a 5-axis in-body stabilisation (IBIS) for shake-free image and film recording.
The X-Trans image sensor is a 24-megapixel APS-C unit, similar to the one used in the X-T2 model. In this case, Fujifilm has added DCI 4K capture at 23.97p and 24p, on top of Full HD recording at 29.9p. It can record F-Log for better grading control in post-production.
Thanks to the new 5-axis IBIS, it can record shake-free videos and images at slower shutter speeds; up to 5.5 stops of light. Coupled with fast 14fps continuous-shooting (with the electronic shutter), the X-H1 should be very capable camera in the hands of a photographer or a videographer.
Fujifilm also added a new Film Simulation mode called ‘Eterna’ that simulates cinematic film. Recording videos can now be done predominantly on the touchscreen, which uses the ‘Movie Silent Shooting’ mode where most of the camera’s dials and buttons are disabled to prevent accidental changes.
Fujifilm will be shipping the X-H1 from March onward and will be pricing the body for USD 1,899.95 (RM 7,384). The body kit with the Vertical Power Booster Grip (which boosts the camera capabilities) will be available for USD 2,199.95 (RM 8,550).
