  • I was using Lexar 95Mb/sec cards and my X-H1 was locking up like yours. I switched to 300Mb/sec Sony cards and haven’t had any lockups since!
  • If you look at the release dates from the X-T1 to the X-T3 , it’s gonna be 2 years for X-H2.
  • Well, my Canon 5D's noise performance gets slaughter against  my Fuji X-H1 with a smaller sensor. The dynamic range is also better than my 5D. My X-H1 is smaller, faster and better in every way ...
  • I have a Canon 5D and I moved to the X-H1 for its smaller size. I have the 35mm F2 WR and love it. Its tiny, weather sealed and FAST. Though the 33MM F1 is a light sucking beast its WAY too big ...
  • Personally I think the X-H1 looks better than the X-T3 in terms of high ISO but only by a small margin. Not sure why they had to increase the resolution.
  • Set your ISO to 25600, put your drive mode to High speed 8fps. Press your shutter. Do you get 8fps? I don't on my H-X1, It like 1-2fps. Is high speed shooting crippled at these high ISOs?
  • I got the X-H1 at launch and coming from the original Canon 5D it was huge upgrade for me. Lol. I wanted IBIS in my camera more than anything and finally got it. Also wanted a nice grip which the ...
  • Replied in Battery life
    Hi Oliver, I tend to upgrade my OS on my MacBook Pro every year. Though I usually wait for the 10.X.1 release in hopes its ironed out most of the first launch bugs. Yes, High Sierra seems slower to ...
  • Created discussion thread Best printer for Fuji cameras?
    Just curious as to what printer handles Fuji mirrorless cameras the best. What do you use for printing from your Fuji mirrorless? Currently I have the Canon Pro 9000 but its old. It still works but ...
  • Very true and good point! Though for me I'd like to see a new IBIS system and battery before they launch a new X-H series. I think Fuji could just ride the wave of the X-T3 series and let the H-1 ...
  • I'm betting 2020 for the X-H2. I think Fuji will keep its higher end cameras on a 2yr cycle like it has with the X-T series. I think between now and 2020 Fuji is working on an improved IBIS system. ...
  • Correct me if I'm wrong but its only 3FPS with continuous AF but 5FPS with AF if the subject isn't moving.
  • Replied in Battery life
    Oh yeah you will certainly see an increase in battery life if you get a new battery. I sure did! lol :) Here is another App I use to keep a history on my batter usage. Looks like I had a day of 8 ...
  • Replied in Battery life
    (1) In terms of battery life it really isn’t any different from what I’m use to. I’m a heavy user . I use photoshop and Lightroom a lot as well as YouTube . So I get between 2.5-3.5 hours on High ...
  • Replied in Update
    Hey Oliver! When I say it’s performing better compared to when I first got it, I mean it does not shut off by it self now at. 5-7%. When I first got the new battery it did not give me the low ...
  • Replied in Update
    Hi Oliver, I ended up keeping the battery instead of returning it. My 2012 Retina MacBook Pro which is now on High Sierra seems to be running better now. I now get the low battery warning with High ...
  • Created question thread Fuji sale on till when?
    Anyone know how long the Fuji lens sale is on for?
  • Hi there, I'm trying to understand if cold weather was likely the culprit for the issue I had with my X-H1 the other day. I did an overnight back packing trip on Vancouver Island, BC in the ...
  • well at least I’m not the only one :) lol.
  • On occassion, my X-H1 will freeze/ lock up. I have to remove the battery. It seems to only happen during continuous shooting. You can't even turn the camera off. I'm running the latest firmware ...
