DPR Fujifilm X-H2 Review: Silver Award


DPReview has published its full review of the Fujifilm X-H2, where the camera gets the silver award with an overall score of 89%.

What we like

  • Excellent high-resolution image quality with a wide range of JPEG processing options
  • Excellent Raw dynamic range
  • 160MP high-res mode for static scenes
  • 15 fps mechanical shutter with good buffer depth
  • Highly detailed 8K video with no crop
  • Wide array of video resolutions, framerates and codecs
  • Subject-specific AF tracking modes
  • EVF is bright and highly-detailed
  • Effective in-body IS easily allows for handheld video and slow shutter speed stills
  • Comfortable hand grip with well-positioned controls
  • Impressive build quality
  • Shutter rated to 500K
  • Very good battery life

What we don’t

  • Tracking AF and face/eye detect AF reliability lags slightly behind the competition
  • Noticeable rolling shutter in most video capture modes, especially 8K
  • No general AF tracking option in video mode
  • Face detection in AF can be distracted by other faces in the scene
  • High-res mode requires a trip to your computer for assembly
  • Poor magnified live view experience
  • Command dial interface won’t suit all users
  • Not all XF lenses will look good paired with a 40MP sensor

Fujifilm X-T5 Books


We already reported about the Fujifilm X-T5 book of Rico Pfirstinger that will be released in July. Rico is also working on the equivalent Fujifilm X-H2 and X-H2s book. That one will come in August.

I have owned a couple of Rico’s books and I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

However, there are of course also other books out there.

Another author that has covered Fujifilm cameras in many books is Tony Phillips. His X-T5 is already available for example at Amazon USA here (and other Amazon countries here).

At Amazon you’ll find the B&W version of his book. For the full color version you have to purchase it directly at Tony Phillips website here.

[UPDATE: in the description to this book they write the X-T5 is a 26MP camera. So definitely don’t buy this book] Of course there are also other books out there, such as the one of Steven Walryn called “Fujifilm X-T5: A Complete Guide From Beginner To Advanced“, a ultra cheap book compared to the other options. But I am absolutely not familiar with Steven’s work and I personally recommend to stick with Rico or Tony.

I will personally go for the Rico Pfirstinger X-T5 book. I found them brilliantly written and to the point.
