Why the Fujilm X-H1 is the one cam­era you’ve been look­ing for.

HWM (Singapore) - - FUJIFILM SPECIAL -

Pho­tog­ra­phers have been look­ing for ‘the one cam­era’ for a long time. The one cam­era to do ev­ery­thing: cap­ture in­tri­cate images and shoot eye-catch­ing video, while re­spond­ing smoothly to ev­ery com­mand and per­form­ing in any sit­u­a­tion. All in a pack­age that’s com­fort­able to carry and un­ob­tru­sive in its en­vi­ron­ment.

The Fujilm X-H1 may be that one cam­era. It’s the com­pany’s most ad­vanced cam­era to date, built to ex­cel for both photo and video cap­ture. A 24MP X-Trans APS-C sen­sor de­liv­ers rich pho­to­graphs with Fujilm’s lush col­ors. And X-Trans’ unique pixel ar­range­ment pro­duces dig­i­tal images rem­i­nis­cent of lm.

For the rst time in the X se­ries, the X-H1 comes with in-body 5-axis op­ti­cal im­age sta­bi­liza­tion (OIS). A three-axis ac­celerom­e­ter, three-axis gyro sen­sor, and a ded­i­cated dual pro­ces­sor work to­gether to cor­rect for cam­era shake across ve axes (up and down, right and left pitch, yaw an­gle and op­ti­cal axis ro­ta­tion). When paired with a Fujilm lens, this al­lows the X-H1 to achieve more than ve-stops of im­age sta­bi­liza­tion.

The X-H1’s aut­o­fo­cus per­for­mance has been en­hanced. It boasts 91 fo­cus points (up to 325 points), with a phase de­tec­tion AF area that cov­ers most of the frame for rapid aut­o­fo­cus. The cam­era can now fo­cus to -1EV, which gives it an edge in low-light per­for­mance. Im­proved AF-C (con­tin­u­ous aut­o­fo­cus) tracks er­ratic sub­jects with ac­cu­racy, helping you cap­ture sports and an­i­mals in sharp re­lief.

The X-H1 is ca­pa­ble at both stills and video. It can shoot UHD 4K at up to 30p, as well as the wider dig­i­tal cin­ema as­pect ra­tio of DCI 4K at 23.98 and 24p. The X-H1 can cap­ture high dy­namic range F-Log footage in­ter­nally, and out­put un­com­pressed footage ex­ter­nally. A pre­mium mi­cro­phone (24bit/48KHz) is built in for con­ve­nient au­dio record­ing. Film Sim­u­la­tion modes are avail­able in video, re­duc­ing the time needed for color grad­ing in post.

The X-H1’s ex­pan­sive fea­tures are built into a tough and durable cam­era body with re­spon­sive con­trols. Its chas­sis is com­pact and light­weight, but also the most re­sis­tant to shock and dam­age in the X se­ries. It’s dust and mois­ture-re­sis­tant and can work in en­vi­ron­ments as cold as -10°C. The X-H1 also comes with Blue­tooth and Wi-Fi for easy wire­less trans­fers to a com­puter or smart mo­bile de­vice.

Ded­i­cated di­als pro­vide quick ac­cess to es­sen­tial con­trols, such as shut­ter speed and ISO sen­si­tiv­ity. The X-H1 is the rst X se­ries cam­era to fea­ture an LCD mon­i­tor on its top plate, with main set­tings, such as aper­ture, boldly dis­played. A rear 3.0-inch 1.04-mil­lion-dot LCD mon­i­tor can be tilted by up to 90 de­grees, with a ca­pac­i­tive touch panel for easy ac­cess.

With its com­pre­hen­sive fea­tures and pro­fes­sional per­for­mance, the Fujilm X-H1 may be the one cam­era that pho­tog­ra­phers can bring any­where and cap­ture any shot, whether in still images or mov­ing video.
