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. Do you think that the X-H1, with the price tag of only $1,900, offers enough features against the A6500?
The Fujifilm X-H1 is the company’s highest performance APS-C model with most video-capable features. It’s based on the X-T2 but adds in-body image stabilization as well as DCI 4K and more comprehensive set of video options.
