Fujifilm announce X-H1 mirrorless
Fujifilm have announced the X-H1, a pro-grade X Series mirrorless camera with 4K video that shoots at 14fps.
Inside is a 24.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS III crop sensor paired with an X-Processor Pro image processing engine. The camera has an ISO range of 200-12800 (extendable to 100-51200) and a continuous shooting speed of 14fps.
The X-H1 has a 325-point intelligent hybrid AF system with an improved low-light phase-detection AF limit that’s 1.5 stops lower (from 0.5EV to -1.0EV), which allows for faster and more precise focusing in dark situations. Fujifim say that even when using the XF100-400mm lens with a teleconverter, phase detection autofocus can now be used.
The X-H1 is the first X Series model to include the latest 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), which has a maximum of 5.5 stops1 as well as a flicker reduction mode that enhances the quality of images shot under LED lighting.
The X-H1 is the first X series camera to include ETERNA, a new film simulation ideal for shooting movies. This mode simulates cinematic film, creating understated colours and rich shadow tones, greatly enhancing creative freedom during post-processing.
The camera includes a total of 20 functional and performance improvements including the 1080/120P high-speed video mode (1/2, 1/4 and 1/5 speed slow motion) for recording spectacular slow-motion footage, F-log SD card recording which aids smooth workflow, a DCI 4K shooting mode (4096×2160), a 400% dynamic range setting (approximately 12 stops), 200 Mbps high bit rate recording, a high sound quality internal microphone (24-bit/48 kHz) and verbal time codes.
