Fujifilm X-H1 Review Roundup in Times of Fujifilm X-T3

Fujifilm X-H1

With all the eyes pointed towards Fuji’s brand new speed monster, the Fujifilm X-T3, I thought it might be a good idea to dedicate a roundup to the one camera, that definitely has been mostly overshadowed by the X-T3 release, the Fujifilm X-H1.

I have tested the Fujifilm X-T3 during my Photokina stay, and it’s undeniable that Fujifilm achieved significant speed improvements.

But as we reported in latest rumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 is definitely also a fast focusing camera, and will get some improvements via firmware update in future. Surely IBIS will become better, but who knows if also some AF improvements can be expected.

Moreover, if you need IBIS, a bigger grip, an EVF that protrudes even further out, bigger buttons, an even tougher body (8H hardness) and other aspects that the X-H1 offers over the X-T3, then the Fujifilm X-H1 might be the best choice for you in the Fuji X camera system.

Future Fujifilm X-H1 Firmware Update to Improve Tilting and Panning IBIS Performance

Fujifilm X-H1

A few days ago, we told you, that a firmware update for the Fujifilm X-H1 coming in 2018 will improve IBIS performance, enabling dual OIS/IBIS control with the lenses you can see listed in the screnshot above.

Well, that media slide didn’t tell you the whole story.

According to our sources, also the IBIS tilting and panning performance will be improved.

A firmware update scheduled for 2018 will bring “cooperative IBIS/OIS” control to the Fujifilm X-H1.

Co-operative control” Image Stabilisation, so that the in-camera image stabilisation will work in combination with the lens optical image stabilisation

Let’s hope we will see also pixel shift one day.

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Nikon Z6 vs Z7 vs Fujifilm GFX 50R vs 50S vs X-H1 vs X-T2 – The Complete SPECS & SIZE Comparison

Fujifilm Vs. Nikon Mirrorless

The Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 have been announced and are now available for pre-order.

So how do Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras compare to Fujifilm’s offering?

Well, I have created a comprehensive specs comparison, and included also the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX 50R to the list.

While we know a lot about the Fujifilm X-T3 and I can already insert lots of specs in the list, we know not so much about the GFX 50R. However, it should have about the same specs of the GFX 50S, just in another form factor (rangefinder) and for a much cheaper price. So there won’t be big surprises with the GFX 50R.

Both Nikon’s are surely very good cameras. There are many specs to love, but also some, that might not really incentivize Nikon DSLR shooters to switch to Nikon mirrorless Z6 or Z7.

In fact, both cameras have:

  • only 1 XQD card slot (might be a dealbreaker for Pros)
  • battery life is around 310/330 shots (welcome to mirrorless, Nikon)
  • there is no eye-detection AF (let’s hope it comes via firmware update)

But as said, Nikon did lots of other things right. Check out the Nikon Z6 specs at BH andย Nikon Z7 specs at BH.

Down below you can find the complete Nikon Z6/7 Vs. Fujifilm X-T3, X-T2, X-H1, GFX 50R and GFX50S comparison. If you prefer, download the PDF comparison file form our dropbox.

Also, Camerasize has now the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 in their database. You can compare it to all the cameras you want at camerasize here. The Fujifilm GFX 50S vs Nikon Z comparisons can be found at photosku.

NOTE: I notice that all our Fujifilm X-T3 rumors keep up getting copied (even the wrong ones ;) ). This means that despite constant shitstorms on FR, they trust and love us. Hence, I send them back some love ๐Ÿ˜˜. Just don’t forget to quote fujirumors.com ;)

Nikon Z vs. Fujifilm X-H1 and GFX 50S Size & Ergonomics Compared

Nikon Z Vs. Fujifilm

Nikoneye.com has shared a bunch of size comparison between the Nikon Z and other mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm, Sony, Panasonic and Olympus. You can see the results down below.

Above you can see a comparison of the ergonomics between the Fujifilm X-H1 and the Nikon Z. The Nikon Z has no clickable rear command dial (which can be handy if you need to change settings and create less shake as possible), but a customizable top dial (like on X-T100).

Overall the back of the Nikon Z has more buttons than the X-H1. The Fujifilm X-H1 makes a more cleaned up impression to me and there seems to be more space for your hands without risking to press accidentaly some buttons.

On the top, both feature a secondary LCD screen. The Nikon Z has a PSAM dial and a customizable dial, whereas the Fujifilm X-H1 has ISO dial, Shutter dial and 2 sub dials for metering modes and drive settings.

The flexibility of the X system allows it to leave the shutter dial on T or the ISO dial at A, and then use the clickable command dials to change your settings.

With that said, it’s hard/impossible to make any conclusions, if you didn’t try a camera in your hands.

Fujifilm X-H1 Wins EISA Award 2018 for Best Mirrorless Camera. But Can We Trust Any Award and Do They Make Sense?

Let’s Talk Awards

It’s time to say a few things about these awards, and to start a debate:

  • Do they make sense?
  • Can we trust any award?

Can we Trust any Award?

Let me explain….

When a few months ago Fujifilm did not win anything at the TIPA awards (except for the Instax SQ10), I tried to understand why this happened.

Did Fujifilm products simply suck, or is the story a bit more complicated?

So here is what I’ve heard:

If a company wins an award for a certain product, then this company must pay TIPA, EISA or other award companies thousands of dollars if they want to get the license to use the winning-logos for their products.

This could explain why TIPA, EISA & Co always have so many categories.

It’s a big business! Which isn’t bad per se…

But now I ask you guys…

… if a company decides to stop paying for award licenses, because they prefer to invest their money into real R&D for their cameras and lenses, how likely is it that this specific company will win something the following year?

More precisely…

… if an award company has the feeling (or even knows) that a certain company won’t pay for licenses anymore, then will they prefer to give more awards to products of other companies, which they know are more willing to pay for them?

I’m sure not… I mean, I am sure they will just reward the cameras and lenses that deserve it, even if they know (or think) they won’t be able to sell the licenses afterwards, because rewarding the gear that deserves it, is more important than making money by selling as many licenses as possible.

Or do you guys think differently than me? ;)

Do these Awards Make Sense?

How important are these awards, in the era of internet?

I mean, everybody is reviewing everything on websites and on youtube. People can easily read and compare hundreds of reviews, as well as select reviewers they trust and value their (free, unpaid and independent) opinion.

I wonder, does Fujifilm really need that nice logo to display at the photography fairs and magazines under their product that says “best camera in category xy“?

Also here… I would like to hear your opinion.

may you have a rewarding day ;)
