A month ago I ordered the X-H1. It arrived at my office just as I was off to CP+ 2018. It is a fine camera at an interesting price.

Reviews for it are good. It is light, easy to use, and despite making F150-like noises when focusing, keeps to itself. I hope to use it someday. Until then, I'll use it as a prop, or advertising for my portfolio.Read More
