Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Great New Stuff -

I’ve been a loyal Canon user all my life, so when the Fu­ji­film X-H1 came along, I wasn’t ex­pect­ing to love it as much as I did.

Ar­guably Fu­ji­film’s most ad­vanced cam­era, the X-H1 has brand new 5-axis sta­bil­i­sa­tion, a high-res­o­lu­tion 3-inch EVF (elec­tronic viewfinder) and DCI 4K video. It’s quite a large, heavy cam­era, though. It weighs more than Fu­ji­film’s X-pro 2 and X-T2, and ends up be­ing even bulkier if you use the op­tional ver­ti­cal booster power grip. In all fair­ness, part of the rea­son for all this ex­tra weight is be­cause it has a thicker mag­ne­sium body that makes it scratch-, dust- and weather-re­sis­tant.

If the di­als on top of the cam­era look fa­mil­iar, that’s be­cause they’re clones of the ones found on the X-T2, with the ex­cep­tion of the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion dial. The X-H1 also in­cludes Blue­tooth, NFC and Wifi con­nec­tiv­ity, which means that you’ll be able to share your im­ages di­rectly to so­cial me­dia or to other de­vices.

Over­all, this is a fan­tas­tic cam­era that I’ve loved us­ing. It ex­cels in all the things you need and con­sis­tently pro­duces fan­tas­tic im­ages.
