Hi all,

Currently, I have the X-T2 and the 2 xc lenses. I shoot mostly landscape, daylight , images, some low light. At 80 yrs. of age, I am unsteady, I don't use tripods, and just wondering if using the X-H1 under the conditions described, would be of any help. By shooting daylight shooting at higher shutter speeds, is there a benefit using IBIS or little to no gain?


Hi Jerry,

It depends on the shutter speed and focal length.  However, under the conditions you describe it sure would not hurt and would most likely help.  Most likely in landscapes you are shooting stopped down for DOF hence at slower shutter speeds.  Well low light is low light.

Taking into account all the caveats - shutter speed and not IBIS is the only cure for subject motion - the XH1 would be a great choice for you.
