The X-H1 interests me for the ergonomics. Let me know your thoughts on the H1 after you have spent some time with it.
I’ll let you know. The X-H1 will make lenses like the f/2.8 zooms possible for me. But those purchases are months off. I’ll probably try the 18-55mm and 55-200mm zooms on it first. And the 35mm f/1.4 prime.The X-H1 interests me for the ergonomics. Let me know your thoughts on the H1 after you have spent some time with it.
Bobby, according to Fuji Rumors the big discount on the X-H1 ends tonight. With that in mind, here are some of my rushed ergonomic thoughts on the camera:The X-H1 interests me for the ergonomics. Let me know your thoughts on the H1 after you have spent some time with it.
Congratulations. My work here is finished.Well, I almost avoided it but instead picked up a used XH1 body at Adorama for $909. I never use grips. I guess I could have bought it new and sold the grip but better not to buy it in the first place. I even looked at the XT2 and XT3 but in my past flirtations with Fuji the one thing that bothered me was the lack of IBIS compared to my Olympus stuff. What this does mean, however, is that I promised myself I would go through my stuff and sell what I don't use. I'm not particularly sentimental for my modern equipment but it's just the trouble of taking pics of everything, etc.
In a review I read, the author complained that the buttons were so spread out on the XH1 that he couldn't easily manipulate the controls without taking his eye away from the EVF. It's interesting how priorities vary from photographer to photographer. I, like you I suspect, set my controls and then only change aperture, maybe SS, and EC with the camera to my eye. I also tend to use the central AF region and recompose. I like my shooting experience to be relaxing and more about composition and the "decisive moment " . Hence, I don't shoot sports or weddings.In terms of controls the layout is nice and clean with nothing crowded together. There's no feeling that any dial or button was located somewhere just because that was the only space they had left. I think you would find it all easy to learn and intuitive to operate. Of course, you're already familiar with the general Fuji layout, so that's a bonus.
It’s really funny to watch us changes our minds through the course of this thread. BTW, I do have a 50-230 coming next week as well. It was only $209.And now, I just put myself into a bit more debt. I just pulled the trigger on a used 16-55mm f/2.8. 9+ condition at B&H for $736. More than $150 cheaper than even the current $899 promotional price. But it's one of the reasons I got the X-H1. The 50-140mm f/2.8 will wait quite a bit longer.
Well, since I've had no problem, it works just as well for me. And I have Oly gear. Fuji's IBIS is also five axis and the company claims five stops of stabilization. Real-world results (for all brands) tends to be a bit less robust. I say about 3-1/2 stops. It's also worth pointing out that you won't enjoy any additional advantage in putting a lens with OIS on an X-H1 body.Biro/drd, how does IS on X-H1 compare to the 5-axis IS on Oly bodies? I'm always tempted by Fuji, but I've become reliant on IBIS.
