The FUJIFILM X-H1 features the 24.3MP APS-C sensor "X-Trans CMOS III", which delivers images with enriched depth.
X-Trans™* CMOS III Sensor
The FUJIFILM X-H1 features the 24.3MP APS-C sensor «X-Trans CMOS III», which delivers images with enriched depth. The use of aperiodic color filter array minimizes moiré and false colors even without an optical low-pass filter. When combined with XF lenses, specifically designed for this series of cameras, the sensor achieves outstanding descriptive performance.
The «X-Processor Pro» is a processing engine that draws out the maximum capability of the «X-Trans CMOS III» high-performance sensor. Its use of large built-in memory and advanced processing power boost the camera’s speed and precision performance in interval shooting, shutter release time lag, AF, continuous shooting, live view display, etc. The processor also supports the Boost Mode for the vertical power booster grip, VPB-XH1, enhancing the camera’s performance to another level
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. Enhanced AF-C performance during zooming means the camera can handle sports with erratic subject movements, and capture a subject with fine textures such as a distant animal, with an advanced level of precision.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 offers three user-adjustable parameters for determining focusing characteristics to make it easier to accurately track a moving subject in the AF-C Mode. There are presets to suit different types of scenes, or you can determine your own custom setting.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 features a Focus Lever for quickly changing focus point selection in eight directions. You can intuitively move the focus point while keeping your eye on the viewfinder (or by touch panel operation on the rear LCD monitor). The dedicated «AF-ON» button is positioned where your right thumb is placed, so that the focus point can be adjusted with the thumb, while the index finger can concentrate on delicate shutter release actions.
Tough and durable camera body
The FUJIFILM X-H1’s body is made of magnesium alloy, 25% thicker than previous models. The lens mount’s structure has been revised to achieve a compact and lightweight design that is also of high precision and more resistant to shock or damage than other models in the X Series. It is also resistant to dust and moisture, capable of working at temperatures as low as -10°C. The grain size of the exterior coating has been improved to achieve scratch resistance equivalent to 8H surface hardness.
New In-body image stabilization
Sensor unit that cancels vibration with fast processing and linear drive
For the first time in the X Series, the FUJIFILM X-H1 has an image stabilization mechanism built in. A three-axis accelerometer, a three-axis gyro sensor and a dedicated dual processor work together to carry out processing and correction approximately 10,000 times every second to achieve image stabilization performance with advanced speed and precision. The correction is based on five axes (up and down / right and left pitch, yaw angle and optical axis rotation) to achieve more than five-stop (up to the equivalent of 5.5 stops) image stabilization when the camera is fitted with any FUJINON lens that does not feature the optical image stabilization functionality. This complements FUJIFILM X-H1’s performance in low-light conditions or when shooting active scenes.
New Shutter shock absorption mechanism
Shock absorption suspension implemented in shutter unit
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 mechanism reduces shutter noise to the lowest level in the history of X Series, making the camera a perfect choice when silent operation is desired, e.g. when photographing wildlife, stage performances or wedding ceremonies.
Firm-hold design allowing the index finger to concentrate on shutter release actions
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.
The FUJIFILM X-H1 has a large, class-leading 3.69-million-dot high-resolution electronic viewfinder with the magnification ratio of 0.75x, boasting a display time lag of just 0.005 sec, and a refresh rate of up to 100fps. It is approximately 1.6 times brighter than previous models, enabling subject capture and focus adjustment with greater precision. The eye sensor, for automatically switching between rear monitor display and viewfinder display, responds around 2 times faster than previous models for enhanced usability.
Dedicated operation dials are provided to control main exposure settings, such as shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and Drive Mode. For the first time in the X Series, the FUJIFILM X-H1’s top plate features a sub LCD monitor (1.28 inch), displaying main settings as well as detailed information including exposure compensation and white balance. Shutter speed, exposure, ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation can be controlled with the front and rear dials alone, giving users operability options to suit their preference.
The rear 3.0-inch 1.04-million-dot LCD monitor can be tilted by 90 degrees upwards, 45 degrees downwards and 60 degrees to the right for easy high-angle / low-angle / vertical low-angle shooting. The use of the capacitive touch panel facilitates intuitive touch-screen operations for focus point selection, etc.
New Film Simulation «ETERNA»
The FUJIFILM X-H1 features the «ETERNA» mode, a new Film Simulation mode suitable for video recording, simulating the output of cinematographic films. Characterized by subdued color presentations and rich shadow tones, this mode can be used at 400% Dynamic Range (equivalent to approximately 12 stops) to attain video recording with a high degree of perfection while substantially reducing color-grading workload in post processing.
The X-H1 supports the digital cinema aspect ratio (17:9), and records high-quality video at a high bit rate of 200 Mbps. You can use the highest ISO 25600, a low shutter speed of 1/4 sec, and even Film Simulation modes in video, enabling diverse video expressions. A premium sound microphone (24bit / 48KHz) is built in, which means you don’t need extra equipment to record sound in high-resolution quality.
High dynamic range «F-Log» log-gamma option
The dynamic range «F-Log» log-gamma option* is available for recording and uncompressed output to external equipment. It supports «color grading,» which refers to post-shooting processing of colors and tones for artistic videography. The long-awaited addition of the Film Simulation lookup table (for ETERNA) has increased freedom in post-processing.
High-speed video recording
The FUJIFILM X-H1 supports 120p / 100p high-speed video recording (Full HD, 2x / 4x / 5x slow motion), creating slow-motion video with an artistic impact, broadening your scope of videographic expressions.
Silent video operation
The Silent Video Operation function allows you to control settings such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and white balance with silent touch-panel operations on the rear monitor, preventing the camera from picking up operation noise from buttons and dials during video recording.
