While Fujifilm’s cameras have been highly-regarded when it comes to still photos, the company isn’t exactly known for their video. Instead it seems that what many videographers and vloggers seem to prefer is either Sony or the Panasonic Lumix GH5, at least in more recent times. However Fujifilm might want to change that perception.
A report from FujiAddict from a couple of weeks ago revealed the existence of an upcoming Fujifilm camera called the X-H1, which is apparently a camera aimed at videographers, at least based on the alleged specs. This includes IBIS (in-body image stabilization), 4K video at 30fps, HD video at 120fps, a sub monochrome LCD monitor, a deeper hand grip, and it is said to be dust and weather resistant.
A follow-up report from PhotoRumors has added more details about the alleged device, such as how its design is said to resemble the Fuji GFX, but will be smaller like the X-T2. It is also rumored to cost between $1,900 to $2,000, but it is unclear if this is the body-only price or the price that comes with a kit lens.
Given that this is supposed to be an X-series camera, presumably it should play nicely with Fujifilm’s lineup of XF lenses, but we’ll have to wait and see. No word on a launch date but it has been pegged for a 2018 launch, but until we get the official word do take it with a grain of salt.
