The X-H1 looks bigger
Yes, its actually the gizzards of the other Fuji X series with enhanced video features but in a body that looks like a minature GFX 50s.

The biggest Xmount so far.

Official announcement 2pm in Yokahama, Feb 14th .

Looks pretty expensive for what it is. Particularly when full frame SLRs/mirrorless cameras are running cheaper than that and several IBIS as well.

When you compare the free cameras that come in a smart phone you may consider it pricey.

However,its a little more than the previous top of the line XT2,but comes with improved AF,MUCH improved video capability,TOP lcd and IBIS.What is quite expensive are the 2 Cine lenses that will make it extremeley capable.They have been released in E mount,X mount will probably coincide with availability.

I guess I'm comparing it to the K-1, A7r II, and on the APS-C side the 7D II and D500. Prices of those cameras are all in the same ball park as the Fuji XH1, but offer better performance in one respect or another.

I'm sure the auto focus is fine, but is it really that much better than the A6500 which features 425 auto focus points and 11 fps and from a video side 4K video with full readout? Current price for the 6500 is 1300.

I'm sorry, but there is a reason I'm not shooting Fuji and it really has a lot to do with cost compared to other brands, even small ones like Pentax.

Ok, K-1 is a field camera no 4K...

A7r2....is a $$$$ony...navigate that menu!....and the price may have gone down temporaily but they put it back up soon after.Grey market maybe cheaper but are you going to trust that warranty?

Canon ?...i dont follow their stuff but it doesnt shoot 4K and this Fuji is aimed at VIDEO!

D500?...a limited range of Aspc lenses, so ya have to buy FF glass.

Yes, because they are all released and being used...you could buy all 4?

I'll wait and see what the reviewers say and what the early adopters find.

AF is excellent because i use the latest Fuji AF,XH-1 is improved beyond that..I dont know if it will be better than A6500,have to wait and see.What i do know is the battery grip holds an extra 2 which gives it a Long shooting time(whats the $$$ony do?)FPS is 14 with my Fuji.The XH-1 crops 1.1 for video.1300 is overpriced,i can buy all the $$$onys but i havent....the weather sealing is poor.

The new camera looks good but getting big for an APS-C mirrorless. I use an X-M1 and a couple of Fuji primes (they are absolutely superb) but I agree with Surfar in that the Fuji cameras are very expensive when compared to other brands, especially Pentax. The X-H1 is the same price as the FF K1 and I just don't see how they can justify that. Fuji lenses are also on the costly side for being APS-C, even if they are very good. All my Fuji gear was bought second hand.

Looks like a pro mirrorless apsc indeed, now if I could afford it I'd bought in an instant. Fujifilm lenses are exceptional too. Not to mention good customer support.

I look at the spec. (sensor, size, weigth, FPS, USB3), the X-H1 is fairly close to a Pentax K3 + 4K and EVF tech. To me it is interesting that IBIS is presented as a novelty at Fuji while Pentax has been offering it in all camera for as many years as I used Pentax DSLR, that is since the K10.

Surfar. Are you still trying to sell this camera? And why?

This camera is Fuji biggest mistake.

Between the Pentax KP, Pentax K1 and the Sony A7iii , this camera comes in at a very poor 4th.
