I decided to compare the sound of my three cameras: the Fuji X-H1, the Canon 1D IV, and the Nikon D300 with the optional battery grip and AA batteries (to enable the 8 FPS mode).

The Fuji X-H1 has the boost mode turned on. All cameras were set at 1/500s and the lenses are wide open.

The Fuji is a game-changer, in a way. Achieving 11 fps with this level of noise is incredible. Shooting weddings will be a blast from now on.

I can’t believe that I used to shoot with two Nikon D3/D3s at full blast!
