A First Look at the Fujifilm X-H1 With Sample Footage

The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company's newest flagship X Series camera, and with it come some great new features, most of which have an emphasis on video work. This great video gives a quick review of the camera's most prominent features and user experience along with some sample footage.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't drooling over the new Fuji X-H1 a bit. I've always admired Fuji cameras for their ergonomics and colors, and as they've increased in capabilities, that admiration has only grown. The X-H1 is positioned above the X-T2 and X-Pro2, making it Fuji's most advanced camera behind just the medium format GFX 50S. In particular, Fuji has positioned this camera toward the video crowd, complete with 4K, in-body image stabilization, and the new ETERNA film simulation mode for emulating cinematic film alongside expected improvements in other areas. Thus, this great, quick review from Cinema5D focuses on the video features and the quality of the output. Though it's not all roses and unicorns, altogether, it looks like Fuji has a great camera on their hands with some good-looking footage coming out of it. Check out the video above for the full breakdown.

No zebras... no ficus assist...15 max recording time.... not a fully Articulated screen.
They've got a long ways to go...

1. Place your ficus tree in a location with full light. Ideally, it should receive 12 to 13 hours of sun every day.
Ficus trees don't do well with only indoor lighting. If you don't get enough natural light in your location, or if you need a supplemental light source during the winter, purchase a plant light and use it, on a timer, to ensure your ficus gets sufficient light.

2. Remove yellowed, dead leaves from the ficus tree as you see them. This allows adequate sunlight to penetrate the growth to the remaining leaves.
Snip off dry, dead twigs for the same reason.
Ficus trees are notorious for dropping their leaves, sometimes over a span of months, when you place them in a new environment. All you can do is give the ficus consistent, appropriate care and pick up the fallen leaves to discourage pests. If your ficus is receiving adequate light and indoor temperatures, and you're watering correctly, the leaf-drop will eventually stop and the tree will generate healthy new growth.
Pruning isn't strictly necessary for a ficus tree. However, if it starts to grow out of control, prune each weak branch back to the intersection with a thriving branch (instead of leaving stubs). Some latex dripping from the cuts is normal; if you suspect you might be allergic to the dripping latex, wear gloves for protection.

3. Water the ficus thoroughly, and then wait for the top 2 inches (5.1 cm) of soil to dry out before you water again.
Stick your finger down into the soil to check dryness/dampness before you water. If the ficus' soil is allowed to dry out completely, it'll drop its leaves.

It seems like a nice camera. I wonder why there are so few fully articulated screens on cameras. My old sony a77 has one and it was really nice to have, especially for bloggers. At least this is touch screen which makes lots of things easier to do. I also wonder why most screen on cameras have such a low resolution compared to the screens of smartphones. Due to the costs?
No zebras is rather a miss. I always use them to jugde exposure when shooting video. The screen on my Sony a6300 is hard enough to see in bright sunlight when shooting 4k. Without zebras, it would be next to impossible to jugde exposure. I wonder how bright this screen is in sunlight.

Here is the camerastoretv guys sorta review on it.

This balanced and honest review video has far far more value than the other X-H1 article I just read on FF.
