Fujifilm releases the X-H1 with IBIS & 4K Recording alongside Fujinon X-Mount Zooms

Fujifilm has announced the new X-H1 camera, which is aimed heavily at video shooters.

The X-H1 features 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilisation and can shoot DCI 4K 24P with at a maximum 200Mbps bitrate.

It’s important to note that Fujifilm cameras have time limits when recording video depending on what resolution you are recording at. Recording DCI 4K will go up to approx 15 minutes whereas Full HD can go up to 20 minutes. With the Power Booster grip attached, you can film up to approximately 30 minutes.

Compared to Fuji’s X-T2, the X-H1 is not only around 25% larger but packs in a tonne of video features which are lacking on the X-T2 including the In-Body Image Stabilisation, SD Relay Recording, F-log & more. The X-H1 uses the same APS-c sized 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor.

The X-H1 outputs a clean 8-bit 4:2:2 signal via the HDMI output.


A new “F-Log” log-gamma option can be used to capture high dynamic scenes, with a new “ETERNA” film simulation mode.
