Inputs and Outputs Notes
Overview: The Fujifilm X-H1 is an
interchangeable lens digital camera with a 24.3MB APS-C image sensor for
shooting stunning still images and beautiful 4K video. It has the Fujifilm X lens mount, and is
compatible with the large selection of Fujinon XF lenses. This "body only"
package does not include any lenses. This bundle includes the VPB-XH1 Vertical
VPB-XH1 Vertical Power-Booster Grip can be used to supplement the camera
battery, and to provide a better grip for holding the camera in the portrait
(tall) orientation. An extra set of controls, including a shutter release, is
provided for the camera when the vertical grip is installed. The VPB-XH1 lets
you select a Boost Mode to improve shutter response, and boost the advance rate
in continuous shooting mode. The vertical grip holds with two additional
NP-W126S batteries (included), nearly tripling the battery life. The VPB-XH1
also provides a 3.5mm headphone jack, when installed on the camera.
Tiltable 3.0" LCD Monitor:
The X-H1 has a 3.0" color LCD
monitor featuring approximately 1.04-million dots and approximately 100% horizontal
and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. When shooting, you can choose from a
standard display, or an info display (shooting info, no image). In manual focus
mode, you can select a dual display with a large, full-image window and a
smaller close-up of the focus area. The monitor features 3-way tilting for
easier framing for high-angle and low-angle shots, even when the camera is in
0.5" OLED Viewfinder: The camera is equipped with a 0.5"
Organic LED (OLED) viewfinder with 3.69-million dots and 100% coverage. It has a
0.75x magnification, with a display time lag of only 0.005 seconds and a 100fps
refresh rate. The viewfinder has a diopter
correction dial that allows you to adjust the strength of the viewfinder in
accordance with your eyesight.
Display Mode: There are several display modes to choose from
between the LCD monitor and the EVF (electronic viewfinder). An eye sensor near
the viewfinder automatically senses when you raise the camera to your eye, and
will turn on the viewfinder. It will also turn off the EVF when you take your
eye away. Available display modes include: Eye Sensor, EVF only, LCD only, EVF
only + Eye Sensor, and Eye Sensor + LCD Image display.
Secondary LCD: A 1.28" secondary LCD monitor on the top of the
camera shows 8 camera settings: Shutter Speed, Aperture, Exposure Compensation,
and ISO, plus icons for Film Simulation, White Balance, Image Size, and Shooting
mode. Additional text and icons can be substituted for the default settings, if
desired. The secondary LCD has a switchable backlight if the monitor is too dark
The X-H1 features a 23.5mm x 15.6mm APS-C format, X-Trans CMOS III image sensor with
24.3-million effective pixels. The X-Processor Pro processing engine brings out
the maximum performance of the image sensor with advanced processing power. The
processor is responsible for the camera's blazing fast AF speed (0.06 sec),
shutter time lag (0.045 sec), and 14 fps continuous shooting speed. The camera uses ultrasonic vibration to
clean the image sensor. In the menu, you can select sensor cleaning when the
camera is switched on, switched off, or on command.
IBIS: The Fujifilm X-H1 is the first X-series camera with
In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS). Equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer, a
3-axis gyro sensor, and a dedicated dual processor, IBIS processes and makes
corrections approximately 10,000 times every second to achieve accurate
and fast image stabilization. This 5-axis shake correction (up, down, right,
left, yaw, and rotation) provides the equivalent of 5.5 stops of compensation
when the camera has a Fujinon lens that does not feature optical image
stabilization itself. In addition, the camera's shutter mechanism features its
own suspension to absorb vibrations and reduce noise generated by the operation
of the mechanical shutter.
Recording Media: Still images and movies can be recorded onto
optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards, up to 512 GB. UHS-I and UHS-II cards
can be used. Memory cards with a Class 10 write speed (10MB/s) or better should
be used when shooting HD movies. UHS-compliant cards with a class U3 write speed
or better are recommended for 4K movies. No memory cards are included with the
Dual Media Slots: The camera is equipped with two SD card
slots. By default, photos are saved to the card in the second slot only when the
card in the first slot is full (sequential). In the settings, you can change to
a "backup" mode, recording each picture to both cards simultaneously, or to
RAW/JPEG mode, saving RAW images in card 1 and JPEG photos in card 2.
Separately, you can select which card is used to store movies. Images (selected
or all) stored in Card 1 can be copied to Card 2, and vice versa.
Bluetooth: The Fujifilm X-H1 is equipped with Bluetooth,
allowing you to pair the camera with your smartphone or tablet through the
Fujifilm Camera Remote app (iOS and Android compatible). You can browse images
on the camera, download selected images from the camera to your smartphone or
tablet, control the camera remotely, and upload GPS location data to the camera.
Wi-Fi: You can connect the camera to smartphones, tablets,
and your computer via Wi-Fi. As with Bluetooth, you can view and transfer
images, remotely control the camera, and copy location information to the
camera. Using the Fujifilm PC Autosave software, you can connect to your PC or
Mac over wireless networks to upload images from the camera.
Still Image Quality: The X-H1 records still images in JPEG
format in 3:2 (for printing), 16:9 (for viewing on a TV), and 1:1 (square
ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine or Normal). In addition, RAW images can be
recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor.
RAW format images can be uncompressed, or compressed using a reversible
algorithm to reduce file size with no loss of data. RAW files can be processed
in camera, or on a computer using
the downloadable RAW File
Converter EX 2.0 or Fujifilm X RAW Studio application software. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the
same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity to ISO
200 to 12800 in 1/3EV increments, using the dedicated dial on the top of the
camera. Extended settings are equivalent to ISO 100, ISO 125, ISO 160, ISO 25600,
or ISO 51200. For movies, you can choose ISO 200 to ISO 12800, with extension to
ISO 25600. The Auto settings will adjust the
sensitivity settings according to the shooting conditions. The higher the sensitivity setting, the better the camera is at
reducing blur in poor lighting conditions, however, high settings can result in
more noise in the recorded images.
White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of
lighting. You can select
Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent
lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light and
Underwater (requires waterproof case). In addition, you can measure for a white
balance value and save up to 3 in memory (Custom 1, 2, 3) or display and select from a list of color temperatures.
Flicker Reduction: The camera has a Flicker Reduction
function to control exposure and color instability caused by the flickering of
AC-powered fluorescent lights. The function detects the flicker rate and
automatically controls the shutter timing to coincide with peak brightness,
making indoor photography more stable. This function can be turned on or off in
the menu, and is not available when shooting with the electronic shutter.
Film Simulation: The X-H1 can simulate the effects of
different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited
for nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- Classic Chrome: for soft color and enhanced shadow
contrast for a calm look.
- Pro Negative Hi: offers slightly more contrast than Pro
Negative Std, making it ideal for outdoor portraits.
- Pro Negative Std: a soft-toned palette. The range of
hues available for skin tones is enhanced; a good choice for studio
Eterna/Cinema: a new film simulation mode for video recording. It
simulates cinematographic films with subdued color and rich shadow tones.
- Acros: for black & white photos with rich gradation and
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white. Also available
with yellow, red, or green filters.
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image,
you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader
color rendition of Adobe RGB (for commercial printing).
Exposure Compensation: You
can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures
brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in 1/3
EV steps for stills, and from -2.0 to +2.0 EV in 1/3 EV steps for movies.
Bracketing: You can take a series of photos with varying
settings for each picture. Bracketing options include:
- AE: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take a selected number of shots, one using the metered value for
exposure, the others overexposed or underexposed by the selected amount.
- ISO: Each time the shutter is pressed, the camera will
take three shots, one using the current sensitivity setting, the second with
the sensitivity raised, and the third with the sensitivity lowered.
Bracketing amounts include ±1/3, ±2/3, or
- Film Simulation: Each time the shutter is released, the
camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with the film
simulation settings selected.
- White Balance: The camera will take one shot and
process it to create 3 copies: one at the current white balance setting, one
with the fine-tuning increased by the selected amount, and another with
fine-tuning decreased by the selected amount. Bracketing amounts include ±1,
±2, or ±3.
- Dynamic Range: Each time the shutter is pressed, the
camera will take three shots, each with different dynamic
ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of
pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. There are three speeds: High,
Medium, and Low. The frame and number of frames per burst are as follows:
|Continuous Speed ||Frame Rate ||Frames per burst |
|High ||14 fps |
|Up to 40 JPEG |
|With VPB-XH1 power booster grip |
|11 fps |

|Medium ||8 fps ||Up to 80 JPEG |
|6 fps |
(with electronic front curtain shutter)
|Unlimited JPEG |
|Low ||5 fps ||Unlimited JPEG |
Multiple Exposures: You can create a photograph that
combines two exposures. The first shot will be shown superimposed on the view
through the lens so you can position your second shot. If the second shot isn't
satisfactory, you can retake it before merging the two shots into a multiple
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second
or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self
portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the
camera moving when the shutter button is pressed.
Interval Timer Shooting: The X-H1 can be configured to take
multiple photos automatically at a preset interval. You can set the interval
between 1 second and 12 hours, the number of shots from 1 to 999, and a starting
