Is Fuji About to Cancel the X-H2 and Ditch the Complete X-H Line of Cameras?


Rumors are circulating that Fujifilm is not going to be releasing the X-H2, selecting as a substitute to cancel the whole line of X-H cameras. Is that this as a result of the X-T3 is just too good?

Fujiaddict reported a number of days in the past that a supply at Fujifilm had been in contact to say that the X-H2 won’t ever attain the cabinets as a result of it “isn’t a singular sufficient product to promote nicely,” and that Fuji regards it as a mistake. A lot of this could be all the way down to the overwhelming success of the Fuji X-T3 which has confirmed so well-liked because it was introduced in September final 12 months.

With its bigger physique, the X-H1 featured five-axis in-body stabilization, one of many few elements felt to be missing within the smaller X-T3. Introduced in February final 12 months, the X-H1 contained the older X-Trans III processor, know-how that was surpassed by the X-T3’s model new X-Trans IV processor simply seven months later.
