Hands on with the Fujifilm X-H1

Earlier today Fujifilm introduced the anticipated Fujifilm X-H1 – Fujifilm’s new top of the line APS-C camera.

The new camera includes quite a few improvements compared to the X-T2. The camera adds a new in-body stabilization, quite shutter a much more robust body (and bigger, deeper grip) with a new vertical grip) as well as a new AF system with shorter blackout time.

In terms of video the camera add true 4K (4K DCI cinematic video), it also adds LOG and 120fps in FHD and a new film simulation and a dedicated film simulation (there is a completely new video menu on this camera).  There is also a touchscreen which improves both the still and the video work.
