Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS Testing, Size Comparison, and More

The Fujifilm X-H1 is now in the hands of many and a few buggy cameras are showing up, but this is normal, while others are experiencing issues with SD cards and batteries. Every manufacturer ships a few defective cameras and Fujifilm has known issues with batteries that are less than the required spec and SD Cards that perform out of spec. Their recommended Lexar 2000X cards can be easily substituted with an equivalent SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-II card. I know these cards are above the “minimum requirements” but they are the recommended cards. Other camera makers might be more forgiving about the cards they will accept but many of them will write on corrupt sectors and you will lose those photos if you aren’t shooting dual card slot.

As for batteries, it’s fine to use third-party barriers if you do not mind the occasional lockup, but the only way to ensure peak performance is to use Fujifilm NP-W126S batteries. I used third party batteries in my grip and almost never get lockups, but if I were to shoot an event where I couldn’t afford a lockup I would us 3 NP-W126W batteries.

All cameras have their quirks and people that shoot enough run into them and figure out how to deal with the quirks. These aren’t bugs necessarily and sometimes they just represent a company pushing the limit of the technology available today. Fujifilm’s entire X-Trans III line of cameras has these kinds of little “bugs”, but photographers haven’t complained much beyond the few clickbait articles posted about them by bloggers looking for something to complain about.
