Fujifilm X-H1 Size Comparison - Too Big or Just Right?

February 22, 2018 | Mark Goldstein | Compact System Camera | Comment | |

One of the main criticisms that we've seen aimed at the Fujifilm X-H1 since its launch last week is about its size, with lots of online comments that it's just too big for a mirrorless camera.

To that end, we've gathered a number of different cameras from the far-flung corners of the Photography Blog office, lined them up one-by-one next to the X-H1, and shot each combination from various angles to give you an idea of how they compare in real life.

The cameras are: Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm GFX, Panasonic GH5S, Sony A7R II, Sony A6500, Canon EOS 5DSR, Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon EOS 80D.

Remember, this isn't meant to be a scientific test of the X-H1 - we don't have obvious rivals like the the Olympus O-MD E-M1 II to hand - but it does give you an idea of how it compares to cameras from most of the various systems available today (APS-C mirroless, Medium Format, Micro Four Thirds, 35mm Full-frame mirrorless, 35mm Full-frame DSLR, APS-C DSLR).

Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section - is the Fujifilm X-H1 too big for its boots, or is its size irrelevant?
