Just shoot it
Okay, let's do some shooting. Bring the H1 to eye level, press the shutter release partway in and, if you're in an AF mode, the H1 will rapidly snap into focus. The very legible, illuminated dot-matrix LCD panel displays meter mode, meter pattern, aperture, shutter speed, film status, frame number, exposure compensation, focus-aid/confirmation LED arrows, and, if applicable, flash-ready and warning LEDs. Shutter-release action is very smooth and predictable, with a clear differentiation between the first part of the stroke (meter on, autofocus) and the follow-through (shutter firing) phase. When the shutter fires, you'll hear a sharp "clack." No, that's not the sound of the shutter, but of the mirror flipping out of the light path and returning to viewing position. This is followed by a softer "ssst" as the film advances.
