Fujifilm X-H1 review

Does Fujifilm's newest X-series deserves its flagship status?

5 Star Rating

Digital Camera World Verdict

Some might be disappointed that the X-H1 appears as little more than a modest upgrade over the X-T2, but Fujifilm's changes are aimed squarely at professionals, and these revisions tick the few remaining boxes that the X-T2 left unchecked. It's tougher and more substantial than the X-T2, while the optional grip makes it a true sports camera. The new in-body stabilisation alone is enough to justify the modest premium over the X-T2.

It's been some time since we've had a fresh line of cameras from Fujifilm, whether it's a standalone range or a sub-series within an existing stable. The last one was 2016's medium-format G system, which still only contains one member, the GFX 50S. This makes the arrival of the X-H1, a camera that will sit above the current co-flagship X-T2 and X-Pro2 models in the X range, particularly noteworthy.
