Fujifilm X-H1 Review

Fujifilm X-H1 Review

The Fujifilm company has been in the market for ages, and they surely left a stamp of their own. They pretty much own the field with high quality camera with reasonable price ranges. And now they are back, stronger than ever with their new unreleased camera, this camera is the talk of all the blogs, groups and most certainly rumors.

So we made this Fujifilm X-H1 review with all what we have heard so far, and what we are expecting.

It is said that the new Fujifilm X-H1 will beat Fujifilm X-T2 out of its place with better and higher features, despite sharing the same sensor and processor, the Fujifilm X-H1 will have the same 24 MP X-TransIII sensor of the Fujifilm X-T2 along with a higher AutoFocus. The main upgrade over the Fujifilm X-T2 is the in body image stabilization (IBIS).

Fujifilm X-H1 Review

Let’s start with the body axis, you may have been wondering and speculating whether it will have a 3 or 5 body axis, but to put that debate,  the good news is that it will be 5 axis in body image stabilization.

Unlike we see on some Olympus and Panasonic cameras, the IBIS on the X-H1 can not be combined with the OIS. So you have to use either IBIS or OIS, but they won’t work together.

As reported earlier, it will have full sensor readout meaning no crop when IBIS is activated, the sensor readout will cover the full sensor area. It will lack of sensor shift and dual IS, at least at the current firmware stage, but the IBIS only function will work just fine.


Shot at a Fujifilm press event in Seattle, Washington, to launch the X-T2 camera.

Just like the X-T2 and GFX, the X-H1 will have the a 3 way fully articulating tilting screen, but they must have read the fans demands and so they have added a touch feature to it unlike the X-T2.

It was also said that Fujifilm X-H1 In Body Image Stabilization will be compatible and work with all Fujinon X-Mount Lenses, it will not have its own set of lenses.

This Fuji X-H1 review is not done yet; it will have a new film simulation “eterna” in addition to a top LCD panel adding more visible outdoors in bright sunlight, and not as distracting in dark locations.

It is reported that the video specifications will be 4K with a 1.17x crop, 30p, and a f-log 4:2:0 8 bit 200 mbps, making it probably also an ideal camera for sports photography especially in combination with the XF200mF2.

It also has a 4K photo feature which is a Timelapse feature, adding a better video experience.

The Fujifilm X-H1 will have the headphone jack build into the camera body which is a huge update comparing to the X-T2 that has the headphone jack only in the vertical grip.

The unreleased model feels fantastic in hand; it is all metal and much better made in Japan than most of the other expensive but all-plastic cameras popular today.

Shoot with it, and you'll love how smooth and quiet it is. It is a small, discreet camera. It takes a while to learn because it's menu system is awful, but once you get past that and get it set, it is a joy to shoot.

This unreleased model’s system is the first serious system designed from the ground up as digital camera system with no ties whatsoever to film.

For instance, the lenses are designed knowing they'll be working with a digital system, and the system automatically works in concert with these lenses to correct lateral color, distortion, light fall off and even diffraction all automatically.

There is no way to shoot these lenses off the camera to see how they work without correction; they are intended to work with the camera as a complete system.

It also adds a few nice features, like a cable release socket and dual card slots, to the already excellent Fuji X-T1 of 2014.

They are both what a Japanese camera should be: tiny, tight, precise, fast, quiet, easy to use and extremely well made out of all metal.

It's not another off-shored to China excuse made out of plastic.

In-depth Fuji X-H1 Review

The first impressions given to the unreleased model were that it gave us a reminiscent of an old film camera. It is very easy to get into just shooting frames with it; it has great ergonomics; and is as fast as any pro camera.

The new joystick on back, which you can use to select focus points, is such genius add that we believe all cameras should have one. This is a shooter’s camera with manual controls even if you don’t need them on a digital camera.

This model is the company’s reliable imaging algorithms and appealing film simulation software, and it is easier to just let the camera do the work on its own, spending little time, if any, post-processing. That is the Fujifilm magic and if you invest in their system, it will reward you with studio quality images.

This model was added the advantage of offering a compact, rugged, water resistant design that is built to take anywhere.

The unreleased model is recommend highly to all the Fujifilm fans who aspire for perfection, this versatile is also recommend as a superb mirrorless camera to those photographers looking to step up from their sleek but underpowered smartphones or get rid of their bulky DSLR gear.

It is also rumored that this model will take exceptionally sharp and undistorted images, due to no anti-alias filter on the sensor and super sharp lenses optimized for the Fuji sensors and the camera's DSP.

The X-H1 is light, fast, and offers excellent image quality. It is a serious mirrorless camera for serious photographers.

Finally, we end this Fujifilm X-H1 review with the EVF update. In continuous shooting, the EVF black out time on the upcoming Fujifilm X-H1 will be much shorter than on the X-T2. Almost seemingly, it will be basically black out free, hence getting closer to Sony A9 territory, and perhaps beating it.

Panasonic Gh5s Review

Panasonic GH5s Review

Panasonic GH5s Review: The rumors have been flying around Panasonic and it has its fair share; it is said that Panasonic will release a new camera specifically designed with low light shooting in mind.

This is enough to blow our minds for sure. It has been a few years since Panasonic introduced an interchangeable lens camera with a 12 Mp sensor, but it is possible we could see a return to that pixel count.

In this Panasonic GH5s review, we will list down all its possible features and future specifications.

Panasonic GH5s Review

Let’s kick off this Panasonic GH5s review with the sensor, Panasonic stepped up from a 16.05 Mp Four Thirds type sensor in the GH4 to a 20.3Mp chip of the same size in the GH5.

It is possible that the company will drop back to a 16 Mp sensor for the GH5S, it is most certainly has something with an even lower pixel count that still enables 4K video.

The reason for the low pixel count is to enable the pixel to be made larger than on the GH5’s sensor and thus enable to gather more light; more light means a stronger imagining signal and therefore less noise at high sensitivity (ISO) settings.

The GH5s will obtain the majority of the video functionality of the GH5, including the 4K (4096×2160) 4:2:2 10-bit 400 Mbps all-Intra and 4K anamorphic 4:2:2 10-bit 400 Mbps, all-Intra capability with De-squeeze assist viewing mode.

The GH5 has a sensitivity range of ISO 200-25,600, it is expandable to 100-25,600 for stills, and ISO 200-12,800 expandable to 100-25,600 for video option. We most certainly be expecting some improvements to the sensitivity.

When it comes to AutoFocus, Panasonic uses contrast detection for autofocusing, and this relies on the signal from the imaging sensor to drive it.

The initial shooting with a production sample indicates that it has the best AF system that Panasonic has produced to date.

If that capability can be harnessed with a comparatively low-resolution sensor that produces cleaner images at high sensitivity (ISO) settings, it could prove very fast, and effective in low light.

There also might be some additional control over the speed of the autofocusing to enable, smooth, steady adjustment during video shooting.

The Panasonic GH5S is rumored to have Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi: 802.11a, along with an excellent LCD touchscreen: 3.2". It also features a two memory card slots, HDMI Type A / USB 3.1, and lastly, a dust-proof and splash-proof body design.

That's all for our Panasonic GH5s review, let's hope for the best!

Sony Alpha A7 III Review

Sony Alpha A7 III Review

Sony Alpha A7 III review: Sony is a well known manufacturing company that definitely obtained a good reputation for itself over the years, especially in the camera department.

The rumors are flying around but one thing for sure is that Sony is coming back and stronger than ever.

Introducing a new section to their massive family; the Sony Alpha A7 III, it is with no doubt will snatch all sights on it. In this Sony Alpha A7 III review, we will discuss all its glamorous features that will soon to be released.

Sony Alpha A7 III Review

The new model is said to be a major update and improve for its previous version the Sony Alpha A7 II, and for it to take benefit of some features from some flowing technology from the Sony Alpha A9, combining those together will result a superb outcome.

Let’s start this Sony Alpha A7 III review by saying that this model will be a dashing extent to the full frame mirrorless camera industry; with its excellent 24 MP sensor, and the BIONZ X image processor. This will unquestionably mean a serious speed increase as well, a speed above a 10 fps.

The new model will essentially without fail also arrive with a 4K video recording mood, a feature that Sony has strongly pushed across its entire Alpha and Cyber-shot line.

The A7 II is currently the most senior model to lack this feature, so its arrival is very much expected on an updated version.

It is conjointly expected that 4K video recording would be achieved by the same advanced video features that appear on the A7 II, such as S-Log2, and a headphone port for audio monitoring.

Other features we may very well see include a touchscreen as they make things like setting the AF point, making menu selections and setting adjustments more intuitive, it is a feature that had made its way into the recent A9 and A6500, and conceivably, we would also find an upgraded viewfinder too.

The Sony A9’s detection AF is phenomenal and it is unlikely that the Sony Alpha A7 III will have exactly the same, but it is possible that we will see a scaled-back version with fewer AF points.

This system would benefit from the faster readout speed of these sensor, helping to deliver a camera that’s better suited to shooting sport and action.

We end this Sony Alpha A7 III review with the handling, we must say that the physical control arrangement of the A7 II was spectacular.

However, we expect some adjustments such as the location of the video activation button which is located right on the corner of the body and it is almost impossible to press it without quaking the camera, so using it makes the beginning and end of your clip shaky, and the last improved adjustment would be the method of auto-focus point selection.
