Fujifilm X-H1 Vs X-T2 

 

As Fujifilm signaled that the X-H1 would be joining the X-Series line-up as their flagship camera, sitting above the Fujifilm X-T2, we thought we'd take a look at the critical differences between the two cameras. However, before we get onto what makes these two mirrorless cameras different, let's have a look at the plain features these two cameras share as there's quite a few.

Even though the X-H1 has been announced as the flagship camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or, it shares the same 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans III CMOS sensor and X-Pro proceeding engine so image quality should be on-par. Both cameras also have 91/325 AF points, up to 14fps continuous shooting, manual be in control ofs, a 3-inch tilting screen, film simulation modes and external controls.

Similarities out of the way, let's take a look at what some of the main remainders are. 

 

Image Stabilisation

The X-H1 is the first X-Series camera to offer In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) and its 5-axis IBIS longing keep your handheld shots steady up to 5.5 stops. It also works with lens stabilisation which means it should be easier to pinch shake-free images with the X-H1. 

  • X-H1 – 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS), 5.5 stops, works with lens stabilisation.
  • X-T2 – No in-camera epitome stabilisation, relies on in-lens optical image stabilisation.

 

Auto Focus

The algorithm for the phase detection autofocus (AF) has been revived along with AF tracking. Plus, the low light performance of the camera should be better than the X-T2 with the X-H1 offering -1EV compared to 0.5EV on X-T2. The clefts the X-T2 can operate down to have also been extended with apertures as small as f/11 now available. The X-T2 only gave users the option to spring up down to f/8.

Continuous Shooting 

A new flicker detection mode has been annexed to the X-H1, for shooting continuously, so that the camera can shoot indoors and avoid shooting shots when there is flicker from fluorescent lighting. In whatever way, this does reduce the continuous shooting speed to 7fps with electronic-front curtain, and 5.5fps with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel mechanical shutter.

Film Simulation States

Both the X-T2 and the X-H1 offer film simulation modes when capturing stills but the X-H1 takes this one step further by offering Eterna Film Simulation which is for those who scarceness to capture more dynamic range in a video, without the need to grade the footage.

 

Video Recording

Talking of video recording, both cameras do pinch 4K footage but the X-H1 improves on the X-T2 by capturing CINE-4K (4096×216) at 24P. The X-T2 only shoots 4K UHD (3840×2160) at various resolutions. You can also capture 4K video to a recall card for 5 minutes longer on the X-H1 than you can on the X-T2. Other video features the X-H1 has that the X-T2 doesn't include a FullHD / 1080, 120fps high-speed video methodology so that you can playback video in 4 or 5x slow-motion, an internal F-Log (8bit), a high-definition internal mic and a 400% dynamic range setting. There is also a larger internal heatsink in the camera to succour extend video recording time.

Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)

Both Fujifilm cameras from a 0.5inch EVF but the one built into the X-H1 is a much higher resolution offering 3.69million dots which is 1.33 million numerous dots than that EVF in the X-T2 has. Magnification is slightly less on the X-H1 (0.75x vs 0.77x on the X-T2) but the refresh rate is the same. 

  • X-H1 – 3.69million dot EVF, 0.75x strengthening and 60/100fps 
  • X-T2 – 2.36million dot EVF, 0.77x magnification and 60/100fps

 

Screen 

The X-H1 shares the same 3-inch LCD with 1,040,000 dabs as the X-T2 but the screen on the X-H1 is touch-sensitive and it's fitted with a 3-way tilting bracket whereas the X-T2 is fitted onto a 2-way tilting bracket. This assembles the screen on the X-H1 easier to manoeuver and as it's touchscreen, you can adjust settings and access menus more easily with it.

Camera Fraternity Design 

Fujifilm has used 25% thicker magnesium alloy to construct the X-H1 which makes it 2x tougher than the X-T2. It also has a ribbed construct to improve internal strength and a bigger grip on the front, although the difference is quite subtle unless you're comparing the X-H1 and X-T2 side-by-side. The cag on the outside of the X-H1 has been improved so it's scratch proof to a hardness rating of 8H and it's freezeproof down to -10-degrees C, as well as weather/dust-resistant. 

An clear design change is the introduction of a small, top LCD screen which lets you see how many shots you have remaining, exposure compensation setting, thought card slot in use, and the battery life remaining, even when the camera is off, so you can quickly see whether you’re ready to shoot without having to rod the camera on. Fujifilm has also removed the dedicated exposure compensation dial, replacing it with a button that's used alongside the end dial and they have introduced an AF-on button to the back of the camera. 

Not a design feature as such but still worth a mention is the introduction of Bluetooth which represents you can easily pair smart devices to the X-H1.

Size, Weight and Battery Life

Size-wise, there's not much in it but the X-H1 is heavier than the X-T2. Battery existence is a little short when the optional battery grip isn't attached to the X-H1 with the camera offering 310 shots (the X-T2 captures circa 340 shots). It's a shame this hasn't been improved, although if you do add the battery grip, then this gives you a totality of 3 batteries, which gives three times as many shots. If you don't want to add the optional battery grip, then we'd definitely vouch for the purchase of some spare batteries.

X-H1:

  • Weight – 673g
  • Size – 139.8×97.3×85.5mm
  • Battery may refer to Life – 310 shots 

X-T2:

  • Weight – 507g
  • Scope – 132.5×91.8×49.2mm
  • Battery Life – 340 shots 

 

Price

The Fujifilm X-H1 will be available from March, rewarded at £1699 body only while the Fujifilm X-T2 can currently be purchased for around £1348 body only.
