Fujifilm Fujifilm X-H1 manual with settings, tips and trips

Introduction

The Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera has characteristics of both the X-T2 and the medium format GFX 50s. For the first time, sensor stabilization is present in an Fujifilm X series body. Furthermore, the Fujifilm X-H1 has extensive video capabilities and Fujifilm focuses with this camera on the serious videographer.

Fujifilm X-H1 advanced manual

 

The Fujifilm X-H1 is the first in a new line within their X range. According to Fujifilm, the H in the name could stand for the word Hybrid. It’s also a camera that offers plenty of opportunities in both photo and film.

IBIS

Fujifilm sees this X-H1 really as a professional body. This is expressed in the fact that the body has been given extra strength at various points and is also sealed in 94 locations for good weather resistance.

Fujifilm X-H1 advanced manual

The most important innovation in the Fujifilm X-H1 is the presence of built-in image stabilization. Where this was not previously found possible by Fujifilm, a completely new system has apparently been developed that can receive the approval of both photo and video technicians. This in body stabilization in combination with a selection of lenses ensures a stabilization of 5.5 stops.

Fujifilm X-H1 advanced manual

A specially developed dual processor controls three axial accelerometers and three axial gyro sensors. In total, up to 10,000 calculations per second can be performed. Necessary for an extremely precise control of the mechanisms that ensure the stabilization.

Sensor and processor

The Fujifilm X-H1 uses the same 24.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor and X-Processor Pro image processor as already used in the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-T2. The large electronic viewfinder has a magnification factor of 0.75x which consists of a high resolution EFF of 3.69 million dots. Unprecedentedly large for a system camera. The viewfinder looks very smooth with its 100Hz refresh and its delay is only 0.005 seconds.

Video

The image quality of the video recordings has increased further because recordings can now be made in a bitrate of 200Mbps. The Fujifilm X-H1 has more than 20 areas for improvement in this area, including 1080 / 120P high-speed video mode. Making slow-motion recordings can be made with a delay of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/5 of the speed.

Fujifilm X-H1 advanced manual

It is also possible to write F-log recordings directly to the SD card of the Fujifilm X-H1, which will bring an improved workflow for many people. Other improvements include DCI 4K recording capability (4096 * 2160), a 400% dynamic range setting (approximately 12 stops), 200 Mbps high bitrate recording, an improved internal microphone (24 bit / 48 Khz) and verbal time codes.

We’ll go over the Menu system and see what has changed, and I’ll give some tips on settings along the way.

Image Quality

Choose a file format and compression ratio. Select FINE or NORMAL to record JPEG images, RAW to record RAW images, or FINE+RAW or NORMAL+RAW to record both JPEG and RAW images. FINE and FINE+RAW use lower JPEG compression ratios for higher-quality JPEG images, while NORMAL and NORMAL+RAW use higher JPEG compression ratios to increase the number of images that can be stored.

To toggle RAW image quality on or off for a single shot, you can assign RAW to a function button.
  • If a JPEG option is currently selected for image quality, pressing the button temporarily selects the equivalent JPEG+RAW option.
  • If a JPEG+RAW option is currently selected, pressing the button temporarily selects the equivalent JPEG option, while if RAW is selected, pressing the button temporarily selects FINE.
  • Taking a picture or pressing the button again restores the previous setting.
  • RAW Recording
RAW recording

Choose whether to compress RAW images.

  • Uncompressed: RAW images are not compressed.
  • Lossless Compressed: RAW images are compressed using a reversible algorithm that reduces file size with no loss of image data.
Film Simulation

Simulate the effects of different kinds of film, including black-and-white (with or without color filters). Choose a palette according to your subject and creative intent. Film simulation options can be combined with tone and sharpness settings.

PROVIA/STANDARD Standard color reproduction. Suited to a wide range of subjects, from portraits to landscapes.
Velvia/VIVID A high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited to nature photos.
ASTIA/SOFT Enhances the range of hues available for skin tones in portraits while preserving the bright blues of daylight skies. Recommended for outdoor portrait photography.
CLASSIC CHROME Soft color and enhanced shadow contrast for a calm look.
PRO Neg. Hi Offers slightly more contrast than PRO Neg. Std. Recommended for outdoor portrait photography.
PRO Neg. Std A soft-toned palette. The range of hues available for skin tones is enhanced, making this a good choice for studio portrait photography.
ACROS Take black-and-white photos with rich gradation and outstanding sharpness.
MONOCHROME Take pictures in standard black and white.
SEPIA Take pictures in sepia.
Grain Effect

Add a film grain effect. Select an amount (STRONG or WEAK) or choose OFF to turn film grain off.

Dynamic Range

Control contrast. Choose lower values to increase contrast when shooting indoors or under overcast skies, higher values to reduce loss of detail in highlights and shadows when photographing high-contrast scenes. Higher values are recommended for scenes that include both sunlight and deep shade, for such high-contrast subjects as sunlight on water, brightly-lit autumn leaves, and portraits taken against a blue sky, and for white objects or people wearing white; note, however, that mottling may appear in pictures taken at higher values.

D Range Priority

When dynamic range is likely the priority, this mode quickly shifts the Fujifilm X-H1 into full dynamic range priority. The resulting frames have great depth when post processing.

White Balance

For natural colors, choose a white balance option that matches the light source.

AUTO White balance is adjusted automatically.
Measure a value for white balance.
Choose a color temperature.
For subjects in direct sunlight.
For subjects in the shade.
Use under “daylight” fluorescent lights.
Use under “warm white” fluorescent lights.
Use under “cool white” fluorescent lights.
Use under incandescent lighting.
Reduces the blue cast typically associated with underwater lighting.
Fine-Tuning White Balance

Pressing MENU/OK after selecting a white balance option displays the dialog shown at right; use the selector to fine-tune white balance or press DISP/BACK to exit without fine-tuning.

Custom White Balance

Adjust white balance for unusual lighting conditions. White balance measurement options will be displayed; frame a white object so that it fills the display and press the shutter button all the way down to measure white balance (to select the most recent custom value and exit without measuring white balance, press DISP/BACK, or press MENU/OK to select the most recent value and display the fine-tuning dialog).

  • If “COMPLETED!” is displayed, press MENU/OK to set white balance to the measured value.
  • If “UNDER” is displayed, raise exposure compensation and try again.
  • If “OVER” is displayed, lower exposure compensation and try again.
Color Temperature

Color temperature is an objective measure of the color of a light source, expressed in Kelvin (K). Light sources with a color temperature close to that of direct sunlight appear white; light sources with a lower color temperature have a yellow or red cast, while those with a higher color temperature are tinged with blue. You can match color temperature to the light source, or choose options that differ sharply from the color of the light source to make pictures “warmer” or “colder.”

Selecting  in the white balance menu displays a list of color temperatures; highlight a color temperature and press MENU/OK to select the highlighted option and display.

Focus Tracking Options

TRACKING SENSITIVITY: This parameter determines how long the Fujifilm X-H1 waits to switch focus when an object enters the focus area behind or in front of the current subject. The higher the value, the longer the camera will wait. The higher the value, the longer it takes the Fujifilm X-H1 to refocus when you attempt to switch subjects. The lower the value, the more likely the camera is to switch focus from your subject to other objects in the focus area.

SPEED TRACKING SENSITIVITY: This parameter determines how sensitive the tracking system is to changes in subject velocity. The higher the value, the greater the precision with which the system attempts to respond to sudden movement.

ZONE AREA SWITCHING: This parameter determines the focus area given priority in zone AF.

Option Description
CENTER Zone AF assigns priority to subjects in the center of the zone.
AUTO The Fujifilm X-H1 locks focus on the subject at the center of the zone and then switches focus areas as necessary to track it.
FRONT Zone AF assigns priority to the subjects closest to the Fujifilm X-H1.

This option takes effect only when ZONE is selected for AF mode.

Face/Eye Detection Setting

Intelligent Face Detection sets focus and exposure for human faces anywhere in the frame, preventing the Fujifilm X-H1 from focusing on the background in group portraits. Choose for shots that emphasise portrait subjects. Faces can be detected with the camera in vertical or horizontal orientation; if a face is detected, it will be indicated by a green border. If there is more than one face in the frame, the Fujifilm X-H1 will select the face closest to the center; other faces are indicated by white borders. You can also choose whether the camera detects and focuses on eyes when Intelligent Face Detection is on. Choose from the following options:

Option Description
FACE ON/EYE OFF Intelligent Face Detection only.
FACE ON/EYE AUTO The Fujifilm X-H1 automatically chooses which eye to focus on when a face is detected.
FACE ON/RIGHT EYE PRIORITY The Fujifilm X-H1 focuses on the right eye of subjects detected using Intelligent Face Detection.

Focus Tracking Options

TRACKING SENSITIVITY: This parameter determines how long the Fujifilm X-H1 waits to switch focus when an object enters the focus area behind or in front of the current subject. The higher the value, the longer the camera will wait. The higher the value, the longer it takes the Fujifilm X-H1 to refocus when you attempt to switch subjects. The lower the value, the more likely the camera is to switch focus from your subject to other objects in the focus area.

SPEED TRACKING SENSITIVITY: This parameter determines how sensitive the tracking system is to changes in subject velocity. The higher the value, the greater the precision with which the system attempts to respond to sudden movement.

ZONE AREA SWITCHING: This parameter determines the focus area given priority in zone AF.

Option Description
CENTER Zone AF assigns priority to subjects in the center of the zone.
AUTO The Fujifilm X-H1 locks focus on the subject at the center of the zone and then switches focus areas as necessary to track it.
FRONT Zone AF assigns priority to the subjects closest to the Fujifilm X-H1.

This option takes effect only when ZONE is selected for AF mode.

Choose for shots that emphasise portrait subjects. Faces can be detected with the camera in vertical or horizontal orientation; if a face is detected, it will be indicated by a green border. If there is more than one face in the frame, the Fujifilm X-H1 will select the face closest to the center; other faces are indicated by white borders. You can also choose whether the camera detects and focuses on eyes when Intelligent Face Detection is on. Choose from the following options:

Option Description
FACE ON/EYE OFF Intelligent Face Detection only.
FACE ON/EYE AUTO The Fujifilm X-H1 automatically chooses which eye to focus on when a face is detected.
FACE ON/RIGHT EYE PRIORITY The Fujifilm X-H1 focuses on the right eye of subjects detected using Intelligent Face Detection.
FACE ON/LEFT EYE PRIORITY The Fujifilm X-H1 focuses on the left eye of subjects detected using Intelligent Face Detection.
FACE OFF/EYE OFF Intelligent Face Detection and eye priority off.

n some modes, the Fujifilm X-H1 may set exposure for the frame as a whole rather than the portrait subject.

If the subject moves as the shutter button is pressed, the face may not be in the area indicated by the green border when the picture is taken.
