Fujifilm X-H1 intelligently improves on X-T2's design

It's bigger and heavier than the older model, but has a more substantial grip and an AF-On button.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Front

Fujifilm increased the size of the grip from the X-T2, which gave it room to move to a modern shutter button, away from the old-fashioned button with a cable-release socket.

It keeps the three-way tiling touchscreen from the X-T2.

Back

The cosmetics are a little different and the thumb rest is a little bigger, but the most notable change on the back is the addition of an AF-On button. It also has a slightly more pronounced thumb rest, where the now more easily reachable quick-menu button lives.

Battery grip

Want reasonable battery life? You'll need the optional vertical grip that holds two more batteries, bringing the total rated life to about 900 shots.

Battery grip

As with the X-T2, a "boost" option on the grip will have the camera use the extra batteries to provide a higher frame rate during continuous shooting.
