Decent, but not exceptional. Using the same card in a Lexar card reader the transfer took 1:22 and the speed was better than 220MB/s.

Using the Fujifilm X-H1

I enjoyed using the Fujifilm X-H1. It was fast. Its focus was assured. The pictures it created were attractive. Fujifilm supplied just the one lens with the review camera: the 18-55mm, f2.8-f4 zoom. In 35mm equivalent terms, that works out to 27mm to 84mm. The controls were well laid out.

I mostly took outdoor shots, but at one point I was reviewing a small high-fidelity device for another publication and needed some photos. So I took them with the Fujifilm X-H3. A few days later my editor, unbidden, wrote to me. “I meant to say what nice shots they all were. You’re turning into a gun photographer!” I had to confess that the camera made it easy.

If you’re into video, the camera will shoot up to true 4K (4096 by 2160) at 24fps, and UltraHD (3840 by 2160) at up to 30fps. In both cases you can select up to 200Mbps bitrates for high quality.

As for stills, well let’s see some shots.

Not a good time of day, light-wise, to photograph the National Library of Australia (black mountain tower in background), but the light balance chosen by the camera did a fine job.

The supplied lens didn’t provide much telephoto reach, but …

… the images are so sharp, you can crop them down for the detail.

The fold-out monitor makes it easy to, for example, frame low shots, such as at this sculpture pond at the National Gallery of Australia.

This shot – rowing in front of Anzac Parade — illustrates little, but I like it.


The Fujifilm X-H1 camera is a good mix of useful features able to deliver high quality images and video. I love the control paradigm.
