Fujifilm X-H1 Too Big or Just Right?


Photographyblog did an extensive size comparison of the Fujifilm X-H1 to all the cameras they have on hand because they have heard that the Fuji X-H1 is too big. They photographed the Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm GFX, Panasonic GH5S, Sony A7R II, Canon EOS 5DSR, Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and the Canon EOS 80D from multiple angles if you want to take a look at them here, but frankly I haven’t heard the same thing form photographers that have been speaking with me directly about the Fujifilm X-H1. Many seem to be very happy with the DSLR like build, which was Fujifilm’s goal.

The Fujifilm X-H1 has put Fujifilm front and center and I personally know some Canon and Nikon shooters looking to switch to Fujifilm thanks to the X-H1, but they are waiting for unbias opinions like my own because there is a lot of hype out there. The site is called FujiAddict, but Fujifilm has zero sway over us and our site is one of the few still saying that the Fujifilm X-T2 will get the job done equally as well. Getting new gear is always fun, but in all honesty, the Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm X-Pro2, and Fujifilm X-H1 will all do the job equally when it comes to photography. I have even spoken with X Photographers that have the Fujifilm X-H1 that agree with me, so don’t rely strictly on marketing.

The new body and shutter button look very nice and comfortable to hold. I absolutely love my Fujifilm GFX 50S and do not mind a bigger body, but I am also not a huge IBIS fan. The Fujifilm X-H1 is just a different camera than the Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 and it will draw a very different type of photographer, so if you have an X-T2 or X-Pr02 be satisfied with what you have if the X-H1 is too big for you because I doubt Fujifilm will abandon us. Photographyblog might have a very different audience than I do or maybe this is just a fun comparison for comparison sake, but if you want to check it out you can find the image gallery here.
