Fujifilm X-H1: The Camera Strengths At First Glance (Mini-Review)
Undoubtedly, it implements the recording of 4K (up to 4096 × 2160) with a frequency of up to 25/30 fps. The maximum bitrate is up to 200 Mbit/s. The time code and F-Log (8 bits) are supported.
For shooting Full HD, the slow-motion mode is available up to 120 frames per second.
At the same time, the survey resolution is very, very high.
Out of the interesting features is a new film-simulation “Eterna”.
Even in the photos, it allows you to capture a lot of information in the shadows and lights. And this is a good alternative to F-Log.
For the enthusiasts of the video shooting, two lenses were created, which absorbed Fujifilm’s many years of experience in creating cinema optics.
These are FUJINON MKX 18-55mm T2.9 and FUJINON MKX 50-135mm T2.9.
With these lenses there are no distortions which we prefer to ignore in the photography world.
They don’t have breathing effect, don’t shift the focus after zooming, there is no shift of the optical axis when zooming or focusing.
They have step-by-step control of the diaphragm.
And all three rings – focusing, zoom and diaphragm control – are equipped with prongs for pairing with a follow-focus, have a standard 200 degrees.
All this provides an amazing smoothness in the management of such lensess, especially with the use of the appropriate body kit.
Fujifilm X-H1 Camera: What Else Can Be Said?
Testing all the innovations that have appeared in the Fujifilm X-H1, in one day simply impossible. (We will try to prepare a detailed test of this camera in the future).
Now let’s note some features that caught our eye.
So, the camera supports two UHS-II memory cards.
The speed of the serial shooting is very high. With a battery handle, it reaches 11 frames/s, and without it – 8 frames/s.
The camera has an excellent viewfinder: 3.7 million pixels with an increase of 0.75x. You especially notice the difference when after X-H1 you start to shoot on X-T2 (also with an excellent viewfinder!).
To connect to the computer, USB 3.0 is used, not the modern Type-C. But we don’t rush to write it off.
First, the transfer speed is high.
Secondly, many studios for Tethering have long used reliable and relatively expensive USB 3.0 cables.
Among the wireless interfaces, an energy-efficient Bluetooth was added, which works together with Wi-Fi (it supports an economical connection and activates Wi-Fi only for data transfer).
And finally, the image.
There are no objective prerequisites to the fact that it will seriously change in comparison to X-T2. The application of the new sensor was not announced.
There are no complaints to color rendition, dynamic range or detailing, although the shooting was sometimes conducted in relatively difficult conditions.
