What is the Fujifilm X-H1?

For months there’s been talk of a new high-end mirrorless camera arriving from Fujifilm. Speculative chat seemed to suggest that the next model might be called the X-T2S – a pimped-up version of the  X-T2, possibly with a few exciting features to entice existing X-series users and those tempted to finally make the switch from DSLR to mirrorless.

When the model name for Fujifilm’s next mirrorless camera was revealed as the X-H1, it quickly became apparent that Fujifilm hadn’t been working on a replacement or successor to the X-T2 after all. Instead, it had been focusing on creating a new camera to sit above the X-T2 as the pièce de résistance in the X series.

Compared to their mirrorless rivals, Fujifilm’s high-end models have always lacked in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). It’s taken a while, but I’m glad to report that IBIS has finally made its way into X-H1.
