    The most sold mirrorless for now seems to be Olympus mFT while Panasonic, Fuji and Sony are way behind - Leica is almost nowhere.

    There is a clear trend towards lighter with almost Pro quality and functionality and this is clearly in favour of Olympus.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Well I hadn't intended buying an X-H1 yet but, as usual, my G.A.S. got the better of me and I picked one up today. New stock into the dealer after all the original batch sold out and I see mine has firmware 1.01 already installed by Fuji so I'm hoping lockups and other teething troubles will be minimal. I also bought the grip for it which seems a good deal as it comes with 2 extra batteries and can boost the fps rate of the mechanical shutter to 11 on boost mode. Looking forward to trying that out as I also bought the 100-400mm lens + 1.4xTC which had a good offer on them when bought with the body. I only got a few minutes with the camera today after the batteries charged, so I fitted my XF16-55mm and went out to catch the sunset. Here's one of the first pics I took:

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    I ordered a Fuji 16/1.4 and a Nikon 18-35 today. I think I shall rotate my kits depending on where I might be going.
    Now I realize the Fuji 16/1.4 needs a new camera

    My wife and I shall be visiting Dubai next week. There is one of the biggest Leica Boutique stores in Dubai Mall.

    Ayesha steered me away from staying near there though.
    But she doesn't know that the XH-1 is available in many malls and stores!!

    One lives only once. I promised myself not to buy another Fuji XH-1, though.


    p.s. Satrycon, the Leica summilux-M 50 is a lovely lens, no? It seems you are showing us how good the lux is...
    Lovely images.

    p.p.s Why Dubai? Coz it is just a hop and skip away. Besides, Ayesha wanted to celebrate her running International marathons on all five continents.
    She returned from Paris a week or so back after running in the 2018 Paris marathon. So she invited me to Dubai!


    Around 44.5 kms was the track this time around.

    I can totally relate. I bought a camera battery the other day and had to explain to my wife I needed a camera to hold it...

    And yes, this is still my first wife and she has been for longer than most of my cameras!

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    I've had my X-H1 for about a week now and first impressions are good. I can't say Ive been too happy with Adobe's handling of the RAW files though so I downloaded a trial version of Phase 1 C1 to see if that does better (many people recommend it). I think, on balance, I prefer the results from C1, hard to describe, they just seem to have that extra 5% above what I get from Adobe. Anyone else tried both and got any thoughts on that?
    Here's a bit of arty work I did with a shot from the X-H1 + XF100-400mm:

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    I use Iridiant Developer to open the files and then photoshop to process them. The RAW processor does make a difference. This is a bit old, but does give you a good sense on how the RAW process can change the output.

    Thanks. I tried Iridient about a year ago for the same reason and, although I didn't spend a lot of time with it, I wasn't all that impressed. IIRC it didn't give the user much choice with its output and so I went back to LR. I've actually found adobe to be okay for my GFX RAWs but for some reason it doesn't seem to work so well with my X-H1.

    What more do you need than a 16-bit TIFF?

    Your GFX files are a normal Bayer pattern. The X-H1 is an X-Trans CFA. LR and Adobe don't have a very good reputation with X Trans images

    I'll take your word for it. I'm not that much into the technicalities, I just go by how the results look. The past few days I've been quite pleased by what I'm getting from C1, even though they don't offer formal upport for the GFX the X RAWs look pretty good processed through there and my Canon files are noticeably improved.

    The more I use C1 the more I'm liking it. It also works well with Canon RAW files too. The one drawback for me, apart frpom paying for it, is that it doesn't support the GFX RAWs. Easy enough to open it in PS and just save it as a Tiff if wanting to process in C1, just another step to add in.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    do the GFX raws open in adobe DNG converter ? is so, convert the GFX RAW's with "embed original" on [so you can extract the original at a later date if you need it]...and use the DNGS in whichever software you're comfortable with

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Being in Dubai, got me a XH-1 last night.
    No lens. I have all lenses back home.

    Tried the Sony A7iii with the roughly
    crop equivalent to my Fuji lenses.

    The Sony combo was too big.
    And more expensive.

    Tried the Lumix G9. Body similar to
    the XH-1. Lenses much smaller.
    Cost wise almost a wash.

    I am aware of Fujiís limitations.
    But suits me fine now. Tomorrow
    who knows, if tomorrow comes.

    Dear Rayyan,

    great and I am sure you will enjoy your X-H1.

    I am on the fence for reentering Fuji territory again with the X-H1 (or maybe the X-T3 introduced later this year). I do love my m43 Olympus gear but I do miss my Fuji system. Don't think I miss my Sony's and am not sure if I could get friends with the A7III and big FF lenses I would need!

    Looking forward to hear your thoughts and experiences about the X-H1 - really !!!!

    Many thanks in advance,

    Peter

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Thanks Jorgen and Peter.

    Peter,

    very subjective first impressions...

    in the shop, the xpro-2 felt more dense.
    compared to the xh-1.

    lenses felt better on the xh-1.
    this could be due to the new and much
    improved grip on the xh-1.

    the first item i checked was to turn the
    Ibis on/off. it is buried in the menus!
    fail..i set it on the Q menu. assignable to a
    fn key? i don’t know yet.

    didn’t notice any faster or more accurate
    focus acquisition than my xpro-2.

    i will do some tests when i get home.
    Ayesha went hot air ballooning today.
    wanted to test the cam. told her i didn’t
    have a lens!! she looked at me with despair!

    in the shop the ibis was the only addition that
    seemed new besides the improved ergonomics.

    i would hold for the xt-3 if you want to go Fuji.

    size of pro lenses cf full frame..,you don’t gain much.

    i just bought it for ibis n ergonomics.
    i am satisfied..,so far.

    not a game changer, but a different line
    that is my subjective and first impression.

    nothing a tripod and my xpro-2 couldn’t do.

    best.

    p.s. my zf 100/2 makro handles n performs better
    on my d700/df and d750.

    p.p.s the tilt n swivel screen is a joke. i can’t take a
    selfie with it!!

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Forgot to mention...

    The shutter is ( to me ) disconcertingly very quiet ( I know the sounds in the menu ) and too sensitive to the touch.

    This, I am sure, is due to my experience with the Nikons, Ms and even Fuji Xs.

    Given time this old fart might get used to it. But I do prefer a meaty shutter and press.

    Shall be home today. So can try my Fuji lenses on the much hyped XH-1.
    If Ibis works for me, it was a worthwhile purchase for me.

    If not...then another sucker got sucked by marketing.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Peter, Jorgen, Thorkil...

    The ibis is wonderful. I have been trying it around the house ( meaningless shots ); but I am able to hand hold at ridiculously low ss and iso ( for me ) and get sharp images.

    Eterna film simulation...me like. But one can fine tune it to taste.

    Nothing to do with the XH-1 per se,but Fuji lenses are some of the best I have used. Bar none.

    Jono mentioned the evf flicker in fluorescent or similar lighting. Setting in the menu took care of that.

    I am sure there are myriads of other details, settings, gripes and praise. For me,
    It is iso, ss, aperture. Add ibis. And superb lenses, and I honestly donít need much else.

    With that in mind, it is a worthwhile purchase for me. No regrets.
    I have tried the XH-1 in hot and powder dust environment...it is holding fine.

    However, I have asked B&H to send me a Nikon 18-35mm, in case of foliage and
    Landscapes

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Rayyan,

    so you obviously do enjoy your X-H1, which is a good thing!

    Tells me I could be happy with it as well.

    WRT EVF - how much better do you feel this EVF is compared to the X-Pro2? Does the higher res really make such a big difference?

    Best regards

    Peter

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Better EVF, yes. Night and day..no, far from it.
    The biggest difference, I feel, is the location on the left on the pro-2 while it is in the center for the XH-1. I am used to both. So no big deal here or there.

    Would I have switched just for the 0.5" vs the 0.48" and ~3.7M dots something vs the 2.7M dots resolution. No. Though the XH-1 has a higher EVF magnification.

    The LCD on the XH-1 has a lower resolution than the Xpro-2. Same aspect ratio. Though it can swing in a whoppingly unbelievable 3 directions

    My advice. No need to hurry. Wait and see what the rumored XT-3 might bring.

    Take care Peter.

    p.s I am now searching for a good camera backpack. I have many, none is something I am happy to carry.

    Thanks Rayyan,

    What I really hope for coming with the X-T3 are larger higher capacity batteries. The small old batteries were actually the final decision for me not to go back into Fuji this time with the X-H1.

    Bags looking good, I am very happy with the Thinktank Urban Approach ....

    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...xoC9tUQAvD_BwE

    Just the right size for many occasions ....

    All the best

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    The battery is indeed a weak point.
    As is the Fuji practice of not allowing one
    to determine the total shutter counts.

    i have switched of ibis and image display.
    i donít chimp much and shall experiment with
    both the display and evf to determine which consumes
    less power, if possible.

    To be honest I prefer the exp. comp dial. but not
    a major issue.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    A cropped sensor travel kit, for me. Obviously heavier than just a Df/50 combo!
    For a tropical place. And warmer months.

    Add a month supply of medicines in a daily tablets tray.
    Documents and cc and such.
    Extra pair of specs. Sunglasses.
    iPhone.
    iPad.
    cables, Elec. adapters, pens
    2x battery chargers.
    Rugged 2TB b/u disk
    2 extra batteries.
    Notepad( I prefer to write old fashion like )
    Lens cleaning cloths
    2/3 small towelettes.
    Wet Wipes.
    Very thin rollable loose yoga pants.
    Swimming trunks.


    Need a backpack for these items. Seems a lot, but it really is not.
    Have not found one that appeals to me. Could just buy inserts, and use my NF backpack.
    Have time to decide..

    That is so close to what I'll likely be taking with me on a trip to Spain shortly. I'm thinking Xh-1, X-Pro2, spare batteries and charger, 16-55mm f2.8, 90mm f2, 23mm f1.4 and 35mm f2. I could also take the 100-400mm but not keen on the extra weight for the amount of use it would get on a family holiday.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Mark.

    First, I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful and safe holiday;
    and a safe return home.

    I was out in the desert for about 3/4 hrs today.

    I found the kit I mentioned, heavy for me. I will have to pare it down. Else, for me, the kit would be something I hate to lug around. More so if I am in a rural setting. But that is me. I shall remove the 16-55 zoom, and the 90mm.

    Shall add the 14/2.8 and the 56/1.2

    I have been to Spain. Mostly in the South. Of course, Madrid, Barcelona, Gharnata and Cůrdoba are must see places.

    In an urban setting, your 16-55 zoom should be more than enough...and being much younger than me, the weight would not be an issue.
    Heck with the ibis it would be enough for me for day and night time. A 23/1.4 paired with a 56/1.2 would set you up for most anything. Except churches and the like. Thus my suggestion of the zoom.

    Let us know what you decide, and do post images from that wonderful country.

    Best.

    Thanks Rayyan, I do hope to grab a few snaps if time permits You're right about the 16-55mm being enough, I might just end up with that on one body and the 23mm f1.4 on the other, we'll see.

    In the meantime, another one I took yesterday with the X-H1 and 16-55mm, a static exhibit of old fashioned milk churns, processed as a B&W image from RAW in capture 1:

    Fuji is going to include assigning IBIS on/off to one of the function buttons on the next firmware update, due out sometime in May. I stuck it in "My Menu" for now. Also, with OIS lenses, if you turn off OIS on the lens, it turns off IBIS automatically. You probably already know/figured this out, but thought I'd mention it just in case. Some, early on, were confused.

    Re: Fuji X-H1

    Thank you.

    The firmware upgrade would be useful. But I, personally, have no need for it as such. Daytime, I switch it off in the menus...a one time effort.
    At night or where the ss might be low, I turn it on thru the menus.

    But the Fn assignment would be welcome.

    I do not use any Lens on the Fuji system that has OIS. My wife uses one..18-55 with her XT-1. That’s the only lens and cam she uses. I have read about usage of OIS lenses with ibis on the XH-1. Thanks again for mentioning it.

    The wife shall be leaving for a mountain climb in Russia. Due to the carry weight on the mountain, she shall just be taking the X 100S with her. And a charger plus a spare battery and a couple of sd cards.

    Best.

    I would get two small camera bags--one for the X-H1 and 16-55 and one for the X Pro2. The bags should be small and easy for you to work from. Then, when you just want to carry the gear, throw either or both bags in the backpack. I have a camera bag that has a loop in the back so when I am wearing the backpack, I can take the backpack waist belt and slide it through the loop to support the bag in use. I have also found the Think Tank belt system good for lenses. The weight is distributed around the waist, I can still wear the backpack, and since the lens pouches are padded, I can simply throw the whole belt into the backpack to store or carry. The great thing about being modular is you can mix and match gear for the situation.

    Or use a camel...

    Thanks Will.

    One very valuable suggestion and I need to explore it more..re. The 2small bags.

    The other recommendation, re: using a camel...not doable. Two reasons..
    a) I hate heights..always take an aisle seat.
    b) Am a Marlboro person.

    Take care Will.

    [IMG]Arkansa Black Squirrel 1 by paul caldwell, on Flickr[/IMG]

    Arkansas Black Squirrel. XH-1, ISO 620 100-400 Fuji Lens. One of rare breeds of squirrel in Arkansas. I have 2 of them currently working around my blind. They are amazingly colorful, even in the black color. Much more interesting than standard Grey or Fox squirrels. Hard to photograph due to flat color.

    Interesting, that Capture One did a very good job on this file and pulled almost no noise out of both the Squirrel or back ground, unlike Lightroom, which did not make as clean a conversion. Both files had considerable color aliasing, mainly in the hind quarters and shoulder area. Neither C1 or LR did much on this, but the Moire filter in Camera Raw filter in Adobe CC did a great job on it.
