Gloomy, rainy weather, X-H1 in my hand and the XF 16-55 on it.
No, I don’t have the X-H2. But I have been waiting for it, and expect to see it on the market in 2020. I will buy it as soon as possible, but there is one “but”: it must be significantly better in any aspect than the X-H1 – in other case replacement of X-H1 with X-H2 would make no sense at all. So what is enough important to me to trigger the replacement?
Or: did X-H1 stop making photo, because there are Nikon Z7/Z6, Canon EOS-R, Sony A7III i Fujifilm X-T3 on the market?
Year 2014: X-T1 appears on the market. Year 2016: on the market appears the successor of the X-T1, the X-T2. Year 2018: X-T3 comes. Do you see the regularity? Every two years a new pro body.
X-H1 + 35mm f/2
Actualization – at the end I have added what I discovered the day after 🙂
In the X-T2, and even more in the X-H1, we can find lots of features, allowing for use of these great cameras not only for stills, but also for video. Let’s name just a few: 4K or ability to use external recorder, recording through HDMI interface. And in case of X-H1 in addition F-log, touch screen, allowing for silent operation during recording or IBIS – image stabilization inside the body, what allows for use of plenty of lenses which have no stabilization built-in.
But both bodies have hidden issue, being a huge problem for many film makers: power.
