Fujifilm has just announced a new flagship camera – the Fuji X-H1, which caters as much to photographer as well as it offers new features designed make it easier for you to shoot great looking video. The X-H1 was rumored for a while, and it is good to see Fujifilm going the Panasonic style and releasing a more video-oriented 4K mirrorless camera akin to the mighty Lumix GH5.
The Fujifilm X-H1 features the 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor Pro from the Fujifilm X-T2. The X-H1 has a newly-designed robust and durable body, while incorporating a range of extremely useful features that support shooting in various scenarios demanded by professional photographers and videographers.
A huge new feature making its debut in the X-Series mirrorless with the X-H1 is the 5-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS), which has a maximum of 5.5 stops. The X-H1 also shoots 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) at 24p and when you drop to 1080p you can get super-slow motion up to 120fps for some silky smooth slo-mo. In 4K DCI you can also bump up the data rate to 200Mbps.
We are excited to get this through the door and have started testing it with the plan to use it for a shoot this weekend.
Even this test video in a dreary turkish winter shows what the camera is going to be able to do
A summer in the darkest of rooms as been busy with a few post production jobs.
Liverpool Hotel – New Pilot/taster for Finestripe. After Coltrane’s Critical Evidence won and RTS for Best Series it was recommissioned and Richard was asked back to work on the series again.
Two weeks ago on a holiday break (yes you read that right) Richard was phoned and asked to do some work on the new Council series for Firecracker. Would have been great to stay and work more on that but I already had commitments to a CH4 show which starts pre-production next week.
This is all just news and edit suites aren’t the most photogenic so here are some pics from Mallorca instead.
