Fujifilm X-H1 : The Launch

Recently I was invited to attend a launch event in Bangalore. It was basically a meet and greet session. Still, I
was very excited especially because the launch product was a Camera. Being a photography enthusiast, I did go,
try and experience the digital device.

FujiFilm India has launched a new camera, in addition to its X series. In the midst of the X series range, this
is first of its kind.


The Managing Director of Fujifilm India Mr. Haruto Iwata & his team welcomed the guests and launched their
premium flagship product Fujifilm XH1. Mr. Ashwin Joshi, Manager of Image Capture Division, explained the
technical capabilities of the XH1. There was also a brief Q&A session with the audience.



The First Impression - I was attracted to its sturdy look and ergonomic design. However, it looks slightly bigger
than other X series cameras, like XT-2.


The XH1 is Fujifilm’s first mirrorless camera featuring 5 axis In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS).
Integrated with high precision laser measuring instrument, it has a capability of holding lenses from 14mm
to 400mm.


At the event, they had setup a 'Touch & Try Corner’. There, I got a chance to handle the camera and mounting
it with a wide variety of lenses.



There was a 'Shooting Corner' in the arena, where few models stood posing for the photographers, who wanted
to test the performance of the new camera. When I captured the dancing one, I was surprised to see the
clarity. With my shaky hands and moving image, I did achieve a sharp photo. The image quality was stunning and so were the color tones of the subject.

Being the first Fujifilm camera to feature IBIS, which offers a maximum of 5.5 stops of compensation
depending on the lens that you're using. This was one of the features that catches everyone's attention. It
provides high quality image stabilization which processes the moving video and makes corrections ~10000
times every second, to give a steady image on the screen. This is the only camera in the segment to feature
‘Dual dedicated processor’ too.

Having many positive features, the price of the camera starts from Rs. 1,49900/- With its high quality photographic range, XH1 becomes a perfect choice for those looking to buy a high-end camera. This is ideal for Wedding, Fashion & Wildlife Photography.


I wish I get to try this newly launched XH-1 before I own one. ;)
