Fujifilm X-H1 Vs. X-T2: IBIS makes a Hell of a Difference (for Stills) + Shooting 1 Hour in the Rain with X-H1 No Problem


Fujifilm X-H1 Roundup

If you are interested in the Fujifilm X-H1, then there is one space you should definitely be: our X-H1 facebook group.

Here on FR, I can just share 3% of the huge amount of content shared there.

This time we would like to show, that IBIS can make the difference not only in video, but also for stills.

In his quick test, X-H member Bob shows here, that thanks to IBIS, the X-H1 allows you to get tack sharp images where the X-T2 with the same lens and settings will give you motion blur.

Totally non scientific comparison between my X-T2 and X-H1 taken today with the same lens (Fuji 16-55 2.8) set to same ISO / aperture / focal length. IBIS (IMHO) made a hell of a difference. Taken in a low light space from the same spot with no post processing.. both are JPG’s. [IMAGE at top of this article]

BTW – The wight and size issues have been very overblown. If this camera is too heavy, stick with your iPhone

Also Chris has some interesting feedback about the X-H1:

1) bigger than it looks in pictures
2) however feels much lighter and smaller in your hands
3) way more comfortable to grip than the xt2 and xpro2
4) IBIS rocks. Way better than Sony A7II IBIS
5) autofocus is blazing fast
6) wifi connect and image transfer speeds to your phone are about 60% faster.
7) does anyone sell a screen protector for the eink and lcd display?
8 ) evf is a dream.

So glad i picked this up. Is it worth replacing your xt2? In a heartbeat. And i dont shoot much video either.

Last but not least, here is a short comment that Michael made

I got the camera thinking I would send it back if I wasn’t impressed… then I attached my 90mm f2 and turned on IBIS. Sold.

These are just three tidbits… the X-H1 group will be happy to discuss everything you want to know… feel free to join.

We remind you, that the Fujifilm X-T3 will not have IBIS, so if you shoot a lot in low light with non stabilized lenses, the X-H1 might be the better camera for you.
