Fujifilm has unveiled the X-H1 mirrorless camera with 24.3 megapixel APS-C sized X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine. Even the new X-H1 has the same sensor in resolution to the Sony A6500, it has a significantly larger and heavier body. In our opinion, the X-H1 is quite expensive.
