It is the first internal in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system to feature in an X Series camera
The Japanese global imaging and photograph firm Fujifilm launched its new X series camera, dubbed as X-H1, which appears at a price tag of $1,900 (roughly Rs. 1,22,100) for the body only. The camera is equipped with top-notch features like in-body image stabilisation and professional video capabilities such as DCI 4K video recording support. The camera is now available in the Indian market.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 uses the APS-C size X-Trans CMOS III sensor (24.30 million pixels, without low-pass filter) and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor Pro. When used in combination with the extremely high-quality FUJINON lens, as well as the unique color reproduction technology developed by FUJIFILM more than 8 decades ago, the FUJIFILM X-H1 produces outstanding, unrivaled quality images recording the finest details of the subject including its texture, three-dimensional structure and even the atmosphere and vibe of a particular scene.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 boasts autofocus performance with enhanced capability to track a moving subject. With 91 focus points (up to 325 points), the camera has a phase detection AF area that covers 50% (side to side) and 75% (top to bottom) of the frame to achieve fast and accurate autofocus. The phase detection’s AF range has been expanded by 1.5 stops from the previous 0.5EV to -1EV, while the minimum aperture requirement is also improved from F8 to F11.
It is the first internal in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system to feature in an X Series camera, harnesses three axial accelerometers, three axial Gyro sensors, and a specially developed dual-processor. The product is made of magnesium alloy, 25% thicker than previous models. It is also resistant to dust and moisture, capable of working at temperatures as low as -10°C.
The top plate of the FUJIFILM X-H1’s shutter unit is equipped with suspension for absorbing delicate shock generated by the operation of the mechanical shutter. This minimizes camera shake risks to maximize the effect of image stabilization.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 is equipped with the new feather-touch shutter button that can respond to delicate shutter release actions to capture all photographic opportunities. When combined with the firm-hold design of the grip, the shutter button controls camera shake for fast-response operability.
