Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying? Fuji X-H1 IBIS Compared to Sony a7iii (with a Clear Winner)

Fujifilm X-H1 vs Sony A7III IBIS Comparison

When the Fujifilm X-H1 came out, it was the first Fujifilm camera with IBIS (well, after this one actually, but…).

Inevitably everybody started comparing Fuji’s IBIS to the ones available on other systems, especially on Sony… and so did Lee Zavitz now!

He now grabbed a Fujifilm X-H1 and tested its IBIS using the latest Fujifilm X-H1 firmware.

If you click the video above (which will start at 4:55), you will see it compared side by side to the IBIS on the Sony a7iii. The difference is hugely in favor of the Fujifilm X-H1. Actually it’s that bad on the Sony a7III, that one might think IBIS was disabled.

On the Sony IBIS side, things do not really get better with the smaller Sony A6600.

As we reported just yesterday Gordon from Cameralabs said that:

in some cases tuning on IBIS on Sony A6600 almost gives as shaky results as with IBIS turned OFF“.

Don’t get me wrong, Sony is great and we are all lucky to have such a wonderful camera manufacturer on the market. They deserve all the success they have, and in some areas they lead the pack (eye-aufofocus).

But sometimes, like IBIS and weather sealing (as reported here), one could get the impression Sony wants to put those specs on paper as a selling point, but they don’t really put all the R&D necessary to make them work at their best.

Not sure if Fujifilm should do the same, meaning don’t care much about how well the IBIS on their smaller X-T prototypes currently works, and just release an X-T4 or X-T40 with IBIS as soon as possible.

At the end of the day it will show up on the specs sheets, and hence become a selling point, no matter how well or not it works.

Or maybe Fujifilm should remain obsessed by how well their stuff actually works, and just wait until their smaller IBIS unit works properly.

Fujifilm X-H1, Still Worth Buying?

So, is the Fujifilm X-H1 still worth buying?

Well, now that you can get it with vertical grip and 2 additional batteries for $999 only, there can be only 1 possible answer: I don’t know, it’s up to you! :)

But if your answer is “yes”, then you have on big problem: the Fujifilm X-H1 is back-ordered on many stores, so good luck finding one.

Vote Your Top Value for Money Fujifilm X MILC Cameras

Top Value for Money Fuji X?

I get lots, really lots of emails every month, from people asking me which Fujifilm camera they should buy.

This is a hard question for me to answer, since it is such a very subjective matter.

It’s not only a matter of price and specs, but, especially in the Fujifilm world, also of ergonomics, since Fuji offers so many different styled cameras, that from one side we are blessed with ergonomic choices, but on the other side it makes the choice more difficult as for example in the Sony world, where you get one camera body, that’s it, take it or leave it.

So what I do, is that I can give a general answer on what I consider the best value for money option in the Fujifilm world.

At the time of this post, I usually recommend the Fujifilm X-H1, especially now, where it can be purchased for $999 only with vertical grip and two spare batteries, and you even save more if bundled with the lenses below:

But I wanted to hear what you guys think is the best value for money camera.

In future, when somebody asks me about, I will just link to this article, and say “this is what thousands of Fujifilm shooters think is the best value for money Fuji camera“.

I will keep the fixed lens cameras out of the competition, and I will only list the most modern camera of each camera line.

REMEMBER: it’s NOT a survey about your favorite camera, but a survey about the best value for money camera.

Yep, the Fujifilm X-H1 is a Steal Now, but the Fujifilm X-H2 Remains a Mirage

X-H1 Steal

The Fujifilm X-H1 is hugely discounted, and the best deal you can get in the Fujifilm X world right now.

And inevitably, I keep up getting asked if this isn’t a clear, unequivocal and irrefutable indication that the Fujifilm X-H2 is just around the corner.

Guys, if I was you, I’d bet all my money on an imminent arrival of the Fujifilm X-H2. Everything just fits, the three mysterious registered Fujifilm cameras, the big discount on the X-H1.

But I am FujiRumors, and I can only share, what I believe to be true, based on what our sources tell us.

And what I say is that no Fujifilm X-H2 is coming anytime soon. I hope to be wrong, but I am afraid I am not.

This Guy left Fujifilm for Sony A7III and then Switched Back to Fujifilm X – Read Why Here

Damiano is an event photographer, who switched from Fujifilm X to Sony A7III. However, after a season with the Sony, he decided to switch back to Fujifilm X-T3 and X-H1.

So why did he switch back?

He discusses his choice in his 21 minutes long Italian video, but you guys are lucky, because Italian is one of the 3 languages I manage better than English, so I make a summary of his video for you down below.

Guys, Photography Gear is Not Real Estate, or Why We Should not Complain that Fujifilm X-H1 costs $299

The Controversial Deal

So Fujifilm just launched a mega deal on the Fujifilm X-H1, where you can get the X-H1 body with vertical grip and 2 spare batteries for $999.

Even better, if you bundle it with the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8, you are basically going to pay the X-H1 with grip $299 only, or $499 if you bundle it with XF16-55mmF2.8.

Now, I understand it can be annoying, that our gear loses a lot of value.

But guys, the sooner we stop considering our gear an investment that has to keep most of its value over time, the earlier we’ll start feeling better.

It is inevitable, because…
