Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. Sony A6300 Vs. X-T2 Video Autofocus :: What does the X-H1 bring over X-T2? :: Shutter Sound X-H1 Vs. X-T2


Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. Sony A6300 Vs. Fuji X-T2

The video above, shared by Erkan Özgür Yılmaz on youtube here, shows the Fujifilm X-H1 with XF16-55mmF2.8 video autofocus compared to the Sony A6300 with 16-50 and the Fuji X-T2 with XF18-55.

At the moment I would be very careful with any comparison that is out on the web, since the test for sure uses still a pre-production firmware, and we don’t know if it’s the latest one. Also, we don’t know which AF tracking settings were used on those cameras.

So watch the video, feel free to comment here on FujiRumors, and keep in mind that what you see is pre-production firmware. In fact it seems strange to me that the X-T2 with the same settings and a slower focusing lens (the XF18-55) is more successful than the X-H1 with a faster focusing lens (the XF16-55).

Fujifilm X-H1 versus X-T2

DPReview wonders, what does the new X-H1 bring over the X-T2?

I know that there are tons of articles like these on the web, so I will point out only, what so far has almost passed unnoticed, and that DPReview makes well to highlight, and some important confirmations, like the improved AF.

Less obvious improvements, but equally significant to serious videographers include a video-specific shutter speed of 1/48sec, which will give a 360, 180 and 90 degree shutter angle for 24, 30 and 60p footage.

phase-detection autofocus system has been seriously upgraded […] Quite how Fujifilm has managed this without upgrading the X-H1’s processor (which is the same as the one used in the X-T2) is a mystery to us, but it’s impressive.

The X-H1’s eye sensor can react in as little as 0.15sec, when your eye is raised to the finder (compared to the X-T2’s 0.4sec).

Fujifilm has been putting ‘DR’ dynamic range expansion settings in its mirrorless and compact cameras for years, but the X-H1 expands on this (no pun intended) with a ‘Dynamic Range Priority’ mode. This has two settings: weak and strong, which use the camera’s existing DR modes in combination with flattening of the highlight and shadow ends of the tone curve. This gives a flatter, wider DR version of DR200 and DR400% modes, respectively. There’s also an ‘Auto’ setting that selects which level to apply.
