Pros:

  • Very good image quality in both Raw and JPEG
  • Great choice of attractive JPEG color/response modes
  • Highly detailed 4K video footage
  • Solid-feeling built, designed to be weather resistant
  • Multiple options for shooting high dynamic range video
  • Capable, tunable subject tracking (with caveats)
  • Video AF can be tuned to be pretty reliable

  • USB charging is very convenient
  • Supplied charger makes it easy to keep a spare topped-up

Cons:

  • Relatively large and heavy
  • Some users may miss dedicated exposure comp dial
  • Face and Eye detection AF not up to contemporary standards
  • Full autofocus performance restricted to central PDAF region
  • Limited battery life for this class of camera.
  • 4K capture limited to 15 minutes without battery grip
  • Limited exposure tools for video shooting

Conclusion from DPReview:

The X-H1 is a camera able to adapt to a wide variety of shooting situations, with excellent image quality, very good video performance and solid autofocus performance. As usual, the camera’s color in its JPEGs and movie footage is one of the highlights. Our only real concern is the camera’s failure to excel in any respect, especially in the light of the competition available at this price. Read the full review
