FujiFilm X-H1

The FujiFilm X-H1 is a pretty damn good camera, especially if you’ve got an eye towards video using a mirrorless lens setup. It boasts a hefty build, it can take stunning video at up to 200Mbps of crisp quality and the photography ain’t too shabby either. Still, it might not be the upgrade that many FujiFilm X-T2 owners are ready to invest in, seeing as how the X-H1 shares a lot of its hardware with that legendary flagship camera.

That patience may pay off soon however, because FujiFilm is ready to roll out another heavyweight camera in the form of the true successor to the X-T2, the imaginatively-named FujiFilm X-T3. According to the rumour mill over at Fuji Rumours, that sequel camera will soon be unveiled at Photokina 2018 at the tailend of September, which will boast the following features according to their sources. Salt pinch necessary, but it sounds promising:

  • Shipping late September
  • BSI Sensor
  • No stacked sensor
  • 30fps with ES in 1.25x crop mode
  • 20fps with ES full sensor readout
  • 11 fps MS
  • X-T3 has an exposure compensation dial
  • Headphone jack
  • No selfie screen
  • Phase detection coverage on entire sensor
  • Improved Face/Eye detection
  • 425 AF Points, available also in AF-C
  • Improved Low Light Autofocus
  • Video Specs: 4K at 60p, Zebra and 10 bit (I am verifying if 10 bit is also internal)
  • No new film simulation
  • Base ISO 160
  • Fujifilm X-T3 Will Cost Less than Fujifilm X-T2 (less than $1,599)
  • 20 fps continuous shooting and even higher in crop mode
  • Fujifilm X-T3 Coming with New Vertical Battery Grip
  • Announcement at or before Photokina 2018
  • 26MP X-Trans sensor
  • New processor
  • No IBIS
  • Touch screen
  • Better battery performance

Personally, I’m hoping that the X-T2 takes a few cues from the physical design of the X-H1. The X-T2 is a fantastic camera that packs an insane amount of tech into a small body. Personally, I just like a chunky camera body. If you’re going to be carrying around a piece of photography that has a price tag attached to it which could be used to buy a new motorcycle, I sure as hell want something that I can use to clobber a would-be thief with.
