Fuji X-H1 IBIS when using Nikkor F-Mount Lenses

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've been doing an insane amount of research on the X-H1's IBIS, and am under the impression that with the right mount adapter (in my case, F-Mount to X-Mount) I can use my vintage glass (I own about 6 Nikkor lenses ranging from 24mm-180mm) with the X-H1.

However, there is no said information proving that if I purchase the X-H1 that the IBIS will work with the lenses. I have found this F-Mount to X-Mount adapter that claims to do the job - https://www.kentfaith.com/search_Nikon%20F%20Lenses%20to%20Fuji%20X%20Mount%20Camera%20Adapter/KF06.101_nikon-to-fuji-x-mount-adapter.

Additionally, I am aware that for each lens I will need to set the focal length in the camera under the Mount Adapter Settings.

Is there proof that Nikkor vintage glass, with the right adapter, will produce smooth video results with the IBIS in the XH-1?

Thank you so much ahead of time,

IBIS should work regardless of the lens you use. I don't own the X-H1 so I'm talking by logic. In some tests they affirm that if you have a OIS lens, you'll have a double IS, on the lens and in the body.
However I saw some tests and even if Fuji states you have 5 stops because of the IBIS, they're about 3 in reality.

I own a X-H1 and sometimes use it with a couple of vintage 1950s Leica M-mount and LTM mount lenses via adapters.  IBIS works very well with these lenses and will also do so with adapted Nikkors.

Regarding IBIS, Fuji claims maximum IS performance when Fuji OIS lenses are mounted on the X-H1 and both the OIS lenses and the X-H1 have been updated with the latest firmware for each, respectively.  Adapted lenses will have reduced IBIS performance.  My experience with my adapted lenses has reflected this. IBIS allows me to hand-hold my adapted lenses down to a shutter speed a stop or two higher than a similar focal length Fuji OIS lens, but 3(+) stops better than what I can achieve with IBIS turned off or when the same lenses are mounted on my X-E3.  I am thrilled with this aspect of my X-H1's performance.

Hope that this helps.
