The major highlight of the mirrorless camera is the 5-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS), which includes three axial accelerometers, three axial Gyro sensors, and a specially developed dual-processor. The camera gives up to a maximum of 5.5 stops image stabilization as well. Further, the camera has flicker reduction mode allowing for stable exposure during burst shots even under fluorescent and mercury lighting. The low-light limit for phase detection autofocus has been improved by approximately 1.5 stops from 0.5EV to -1.0EV, raising the precision and speed of autofocus in low-light environments.
The Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera APS-C size X-Trans CMOS III sensor (24.30 million pixels, without low-pass filter) and high-speed image processing engine X-Processor Pro. The camera comes loaded with vertical power boost grip, known as VPB-XH1, which increases the maximum period for shooting movies in 4K to about 30 minutes,
The grip has different controls include the shutter-release button, focus lever, AE-L button, AF-ON button, command dial, Q button, and Fn button, providing the same easy operation when using the camera in both the vertical and horizontal positions.

The X-H1 is the first camera in the X Series to include ETERNA, a new film simulation ideal for shooting movies. This modebasically simulates cinematic film, creating understated colours and rich shadow tones. The camera’s video image quality has been improved through the new ability to record a high bit rate of 200 Mbps.
The camera includes a total of 20 functional and performance improvements including the 1080/120P high-speed video mode (1/2, 1/4 and 1/5 speed slow motion) for recording slow-motion footage, F-log SD card recording which aids smooth workflow, a DCI 4K shooting mode (4096×2160), a 400% dynamic range setting (approximately 12 stops), 200 Mbps high bit rate recording, a high-sound quality internal microphone (24 bit/48 kHz) and verbal time codes.
