The Fujifilm X-H1 maybe has been misunderstood by the market. It had a lot of new video features, so people considered it more a video camera. But it is also a better and more robust camera, and facilitates handling of bigger lenses. For Professionals weight is sometimes not a problem, but more durability. That’s why Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm X-H1. It should also appeal to DSLR customers, who were on the fence of switching to mirrorless. IBIS is quite nice also for photography, especially in low light
Shutter has an S1 (half press) and S2 (full contact to release shutter) position. Regarding the Fujifilm X-H1, you can contact your Fujifilm service and see if they have an option to adjust the S1 and S2 position to your taste (low, medium or high). There might be a charge for that service, depending on your country
Fujifilm wanted to make an excellent IBIS system, and it is one of the best on the market. But the size of the system was too big to put it into other X-series cameras. At this moment, it can’t fit in other cameras, but hopefully one day IBIS can be designed smaller and make it fit on other cameras
Fujinon GF 100-200mm f/5.6 R LM OIS WR: If you look to move into medium format, you don’t have many lenses initially to choose from, so zoom lenses can cover various focal lengths. The GF100-200 is compatible with teleconverter. It’s a little bit heavier, but very sharp. At that focal length with medium format sensor, you can isolate your subject very well
A trusted source told me (thanks), that the Fujifilm X-T30 will be released in the first quarter of 2019 (January-March).
This pretty much fits with what we expected in our Fujifilm X camera replacement timeline, where we speculated, based on Fuji’s camera refresh-cycle, when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-E4 and Fujifilm X200 (or X100V) could be released.
According to a trusted source, the Fujifilm X-H2 will not hit the market in 2019.
This rumor seem to confirm our Fujifilm X Camera replacement timeline, which shows you when we can expect the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X200 (or Fujifilm X100V) based on Fuji’s camera refresh rate from 2011 to 2018.
So, the Fuji X-H2 is still a long way off, hence, if you want to get the latest and greatest in the most powerful package possible now, the Fujifilm X-T3 is the way to go. And if you want IBIS, ultra rugged body and ninja mechanical shutter, go for the Fujifilm X-H1.
And given that you guys now have a first reliable Fuji XH2 time frame, I decided to launch the poll again, where you can vote if you prefer to wait for the X-H2, or you go X-T3 instead.
