Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. Sony A7III Autofocus and IBIS Comparison, The Last X-Trans III Camera, Fuji Guys Vlog & more (X-H1 Roundup)


Fujifilm X-H1 Reviews & Controversy

Max Yuryev compared the Fujifilm X-H1 and Sony A7III Autofocus and IBIS.

The video is titled “Fuji surprises“, but I guess this is more to calm the spirits after his last video (linked below), where he says the Fujifilm X-H1 “gets destroyed” by the Sony A7III in low light (1 stop difference in terms of noise).

Also in his newest video, he seems to love the Sony A7III overall more.

  • Video AF: Better face detection on the Sony A7III (recognizes faces more distant)
  • Both fantastic video AF with face detection disabled. Sony a bit smoother.
  • IBIS: Fujifilm X-H1 mostly much smoother. Sometimes it “jumps” to reset position. Sony A7III generally more shaky, but no “jumps”.
  • Fujifilm AF video adjustments can be faster, which is great for photography, but in video you want a smooth transition. Fujifilm X-H1 is sometimes smooth focussing, but sometimes it focusses as fast as possible to the new subject.

Speaking of controversial statements, Tony Northrup said here, that the Sony A7III has “crushed the hopes of the Fujifilm X-H1“. I know it’s a controversal video, due to his statement “twice as good image quality for the Sony A7III“, so make sure to check out also Tony’s follow-up video here, where he clarifies “twice” refers technically to “1 stop“, and that with “image quality” he was analyzing “noise and dynamic range“.

The Last X-Trans III camera?

Gordon from cameralabs has published a very comprehensive Fujifilm X-H1 review. Gordon has very good contacts within the photo industry, and if he says that the Fujifilm X-H1 will “possibly be the last to use the X-Trans III sensor“, then I guess he knows what he talks about.

But no big surprise for regular FujiRumors readers. We already told you that the Fujifilm X-T3 will be announced around photokina 2018, have a new X-Trans sensor with less than 30MP and a new processor, and also lack of IBIS.
