Fujifilm Announces New 24.3MP X-H1 Mirrorless Camera with In-Body Image Stabilization

Fujifilm has finally done it. The company just introduced the new X-H1 mirrorless camera, which is Fujifilm’s first camera to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS) that’s designed to help ensure sharper shots even when you’re using a non-image-stabilized lens.

The new Fujifilm X-H1 also has a 24.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine, and adds a new Flicker Reduction mode, which is designed to give you more consistent image exposure under florescent and mercury lighting. The Fujifilm X-H1 also shoots DCI 4K, aka “true 4K,” at 4096 x 2160 pixels for a cinema-level video.

Fuji’s new X-M1 mirrorless camera has a pro-grade body that’s dust, scratch, and water-resistant and built to shoot in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s also an optional, weather-resistant Vertical Power Booster Grip (VPB-XH1), shown with the camera in the image at the top of this story.

The real highlight though is the Fujifilm X-H1’s new 5-axis, 5.5-stop, in-body image stabilization system, which uses three axial accelerometers, three axial gyro sensors, and a special developed dual-processor to achieve 10,000 calculations per second.
