Fujifilm XH-1: My First Impressions and Comparison Photos

I received the Fujifilm X-H1 yesterday and it’s a very interesting camera. As expected it performs very much like my Fujifilm X-T2 and the grip is nice, but a little flawed without the battery grip for someone with my sized hands. The Fujifilm GFX50S fits my hand perfectly without a battery grip because the built-in grip is a little longer than the Fuji X-H1 grip. I have a similar issue with the Fujifilm X-T2, but I can wrap my pinky under the camera fully and find a more comfortable shooting position, but the X-H1 design makes me push my hand up and off the camera to reach everything easily.

The Fuji X-H1 does have a far better fit and finish than the Fuji X-T2, which I found a bit surprising. The X-H1 really didn’t feel much heavier than the XT-2 until I attached the Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR. Larger Fujifilm lenses balance very well on the X-H1, but they no longer sit flat on a table like they once did with cameras like the Fujifilm X-T2.

The only other major difference I have experienced so far is how easy Fujifilm made camera setup with the X-H1 thanks to the app and Bluetooth. Bluetooth seems to work very well on the Fujifilm X-H1 and I look forward to using the app for geotagging. I am glad Fujifilm is making an effort to improve their app, but I really want to see them improve the app for wifi cameras also, because geotagging can be very useful.

Now that I have a camera in hand I will be doing some testing of my own to see how it performs and maybe it will convince me that it’s truly an upgrade over the Fujifilm X-T2 or X-Pro2.
