XH1 - A hidden/forgotten gem

BIt of a background, i have been looking to get 3 bodies for my wedding photography business.

My partner has an XH1 and ive always liked it, the Shutter sounds so nice and i find the IBIS a bit of a game changer to be honest. The grip is also amazing

my criteria for my next wedding body was

Dual SD card

so that only left Xt4 and XH1,

Which is a shame as X-S10 would be my perfect camera but cant risk not having dual SD cards for weddings.

I decided for my backup body to get a mint condition XT-2 for only £430 with an XF27 lens which i sold for £210 (already own) so i got my backup body for just £200! couldn't pass it up for that, despite it being a bit old.

I decided id spend the £1350 (ouch) on the XT4 but first i used the amazing Fuji loan system to try it out for a few days for free!

XT-4 is absolutely lovely, amazing shutter, awesome IBIS, impressive AF speed, it was all an upgrade over XH1... but you know what... for what i need it wasn't £1000 better! especially when there is rumours of the 40mp sensor we might get in XT5.

I preferred the ergonomics and flip screen of the XH1, im losing out on AF speed, but picture quality is almost similar.

I managed to pick up a used Xh1 mint condition with 2 official battery's and the official Fuji battery grip for £530 and im happy with it.

I will probably upgrade the XT-2 to either the XH2 or XT5 with the new 40mp sensor in the future.
