All because one person says so. Man, I'm in the wrong racket.

what a downer, the X-H1 just sunk.

I was referring to your comment about the lack of an audio jack. You know, iPhone 7, 8, X..... You must have an android phone.

retr01976: So this camera is a separate line from the X-T2 focusing heavily on video I assume ? Just curious as I prefer the X-T line better, don't care for the odd looking top LCD and bigger body. Just hoping Fuji isn't replacing the X-T series with this line, this is starting to look like a bit like an SLR.

@entoman: Nonsense. A deeper grip is always welcome if it gives the camera better handling. If that compromises the "aesthetic appeal," so be it.

That's what they said about iPhones. And they're still flying off the shelves.

johnny_mnemonic: So basically we are back to near DSLR size for cameras like this... except with the mirrorless option you get 310 shots per charge. When mirrorless tries to do what DSLRs do, it gets heavy and expensive. The glass is still heavy and always will be. I don't mind the concept of mirrorless but the execution just doesn't make sense to me. Way less battery life, same cost, same lens sizes for most zooms... i mean what is the point of this.

Would someone really choose this over a Nikon D500 for stills?

The point is to steer you back to DSLRs. At least, rethink your strategy a little.

This thing looks massive in mirrorless terms. So...

XH-1 : "H" stands for Hodor
XT-2: "T" stands for Tyrion

Got it.

ArmandvdMerwe: Does a combination of IBIS with stabilized lens gives much better results than IBIS with non stabilized lens?

I believe that stabilization only works on one or the other. It doesn't do double duty.

NOWHITELENS: Finally a mirrorless body that is big enough that a fully grown adult can handle it comfortably. Now put a real battery in that baby and I might believe that the future is mirrorless.
Please refresh my mind:
If you don't care for video, what does this camera do better than a Nikon D500?

IBIS.

thejohnnerparty: Nice job on the 1st impressions. Impressive video production. ;-) The camera looks interesting, but I can somewhat agree about the operational aspects. I think they could have done away the dials on top all together and used something like the pro style buttons on the Nikon cameras along with the real command dial coupled with a couple buttons to switch between still & video configurations, but that's just me. .... All in all, it's probably going to be a winner for the Fujifilm camp. ;-)

I like the buttons on top of the Fujis. If I wanted Nikon-like buttons, I would shoot Nikon.

Been to China. Didn't get arrested and they served me great Chinese food.

Useful Tip #1: Don't ask where to get Chinese food in China. To them, it's just "food."

Does this mean that the XT-2 will come down to mortal-level prices now?

Gatoraied: China has long been sending Trojan Horses into the USA and this is no surprise. The Chinese find nothing wrong with cheating and stealing and actually do not understand the concept of wrong doing. Its in their culture and DNA. I'll never trust them and people need to wake up and not be so naive to think this country is OK, they are not. I do my best to not buy Chinese products which unfortunately has become very difficult especially with electronics but I think its possible to minimize those purchases. As for Apple & Google? Sure, they're sneaky too but for different reasons but not in the same way as the Chinese.

Even better, we'll raise the money for your vasectomy.

You're a racist and you're full of it.

Vahab: I knew manual lens meant made by hand.

No. It's made by a guy named Manuel. They just keep mispronouncing his name over there.

And by "affordable" they mean $5,000. Battery only, of course.

the Mtn Man: As the inimitable Ken Rockwell famously said, your camera doesn't matter, only the end result.

Having said that, I'm underwhelmed by most of these images. They look like uninspired snapshots, exactly the sort of thing I would expect someone to take with a cell phone.

No mention of Ken Knockwell..... ever.

ShatteredSky: I'd rather do with the small DL18-50 , mmmmh, wait I meant the LX100. Seriously though, I think any of the larger sensor compacts would be a good compromise. A friend of mine went through Russia and half of Asia and back via Kazakhstan and Turkey with a G15 (I think).

You're opening up old wounds there with the mention of the DL18... uh-oh, here we goooo.......**** YOU NIKON! I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL!! $#^&#$%#&!!!!!!!!
