Fujifilm X-H1 Field Testing, ETERNA and a Look at Fujifilm’s Professional Mounts

It’s always interesting hearing a videographers/cinematographers perspective on handling a new camera designed for them. Many photographers like IBIS, but the technology is most useful for professionals that shoot photos and video. Most photographers can make any lens work for them with the capabilities of modern sensors without turning to IBIS, but it is always nice to have access to tools. It looks like Fujifilm did a very good job with their focus pull speed adjustment tool from the above video and it will allow for a lot of creative possibilities using AF X-Mount glass, which should go beyond those of m43 at this time since the GH cameras are strictly contrast detect AF.

I think a lot of photographers and videographers are going to enjoy the new Fujifilm X-H1 body because it should feel very much like the Fujifilm GFX on a diet, but beyond that, it will very much be a professional X-series camera. There are some bad X-mount photos out there showing some differences in the X-H1 mount, but if you look at the X-T2, X-Pro2, and X-H1 mount square on they are remarkably similar. It’s why the corners matter so much for Fujifilm’s IBIS system. These photos are from launch cameras and were shot professionally to be similar at different times.

Maybe Fujifilm will do an interview in the future discussing how they got around the mount limitations or maybe they will always keep the solution to themselves. I’m curious what a photo irresponsibly pushed looks like when IBIS is working hard. I guess we will see on March 1st because that’s when photographers will be pushing the X-H1 to the breaking point.
