Fujifilm Targets Video Shooters With New Flagship X-H1 Mirrorless Camera
Updated: Jun 16, 2019
With the increased popularity of mirrorless cameras during the past years amongst filmmakers and videographers, Fujifilm has decided to join the party by releasing the X-H1. Sony and Panasonic have been dominating the mirrorless camera market while Canon and Nikon still haven’t really embraced the format.
Fujifilm’s new flagship APS-C sensor sized camera is obviously heavily targeted at video shooters and the filmmaking community with features such as DCI 4K 24p recording and In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS). Fuji’s new camera builds and improves on their X-T2, which was already very popular with photographers and video shooters alike.
A great feature included in the X-H1 is the addition of F-log and the “Eterna” film simulation mode, giving video editors and colorists more flexibility in post-production when it comes to color grading their video footage by providing wider dynamic range. Although the camera has SD relay recording, it’s important to note that video recording time is limited depending on which mode and resolution you’re filming at. Shooting at DCI 4K gives the cameraman around 15 minutes of recording time, and attaching a power booster grip to the camera raises that limit to about 30 minutes.
