Fujifilm X-H1: Reviews, 120fps, X-H1 vs A7III, Focus Tracking, And More

There seem to be a lot of mixed opinions about the Fujifilm X-H1 and some of them have come from users that do not know how to use the camera correctly. I have to admit Fujifilm cameras have been getting more complicated and the menus aren’t as simple as they used to be, but they are still fairly logical. Details about when the camera operates in CDAF vs PDAF and if you need to turn off IBIS while using a tripod are somewhat obscured today.

This on top of the recent bugs that some have experienced has lead to some unjustified negative opinions about the Fujifilm X-H1 because photographers aren’t taking the time to tweak settings to maximize their performance. All cameras require tweaking to maximize their performance and I recall severely messing up settings on past Nikon and Canon cameras that I was forced to use in the past.

To be fair I am not defending Fujifilm as much as I am pointing out that the Fujifilm X-H1 is a more Sony-like camera than past Fujifilm cameras. The menus are getting deep and how features play off each other isn’t necessarily intuitive, which is why we are having lockup issue when using flicker reduction and E-Front curtain shutter together.

All of the reviews out there based on mistaken settings and confusion might lead to a future menu system redesign from Fujifilm. It would be interesting if Fujifilm redesigned their menus before Sony did, even though they aren’t very bad.
