Fujifilm Corporation President: Kenji Sukeno has announced the launch of the Fujifilm X-H1, a high-performing mirrorless digital camera.
The X-H1, with a newly-designed robust and durable body, incorporates a range of extremely useful features that support shooting in various scenarios demanded by professional photographers and videographers. This is according to the company.
The X-H1 is the first X Series model to include the latest 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), which has a maximum of 5.5 stops. The superior image quality with the memory colour will be achieved in the various scenes in addition to easy operation. It is also mounted with the flicker reduction mode which enhances the quality of indoor sports photography. In addition, The X-H1 is the first camera, as stated by Fujifilm, in the X Series to include ETERNA mode, a new film simulation mode ideal for shooting movies.
The camera is also compatible with a range of other interchangeable lenses which are scheduled for release later this year. These include the MKX18-55mmT2.9 and MKX50-135mmT2.9 professional cinema lenses incorporating the X mount which are scheduled for release in May 2018. The XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR, a wide aperture single-focus telephoto lens, and XF8-16mmF 2.8 R WR, designed to meet the needs of scenery or landscape photographers are also included, both of which are scheduled for release by the end of 2018. The new camera and lens combinations will provide, as revealed by the firm, outstanding image production and will be ideal for shooting a moving subject in sports photography.
The latest camera from the firm is dust-resistant, water-resistant and operates at temperatures of down to -10°C. The rear LCD monitor is a 3-direction tilt, 3-inch, 1.04 million dot electrostatic touch-panel LCD which can be set to the desired angle.
