Fujifilm’s X-H2S mirrorless camera is fast and video-centric.

Today in Omiya, Japan, Fujifilm is holding its most recent X-Summit event, which brings with it a number of new announcements for its X-series of APS-C mirrorless cameras. These announcements include not one but two cameras as well as two lenses. The X-H2S camera, which has a resolution of 26 megapixels and is referred to as Fujifilm’s new high-speed flagship model, is the star of the show. The X-H1, which was released in 2018, will be succeeded by this model, which will go on sale on July 7 for a price of $2,499. (without a lens).

Along with this camera, a new XF 150-600mm super-telephoto zoom lens with a price tag of $1,999 will also be made available. An XF 18-120mm powered zoom lens will be made available later, around the middle of September, with a price tag of $899. Another camera that Fujifilm is planning to release in September is the X-H2, which has been teased as having a new non-stacked sensor with 40 megapixels.

These new cameras are more pro-DSLR-like than anything else in Fujifilm’s X-series of cameras. Instead of the traditional shutter speed and ISO dials, they have a dial that reads PSAM, which stands for picture style, aperture, and shutter speed. Even though the X-H2S has a modest resolution that is only two megapixels higher than its predecessor, the camera’s most significant advancements can be found in its speed, autofocus tracking capabilities, and ability to shoot hybrid videos. The new 26-megapixel backside-illuminated APS-C sensor has a stacked design, which allows for faster readout speeds. These faster readout speeds allow for blackout-free shooting at up to 40 frames per second with the electronic shutter, all while maintaining continuous autofocus tracking. In contrast to the Nikon Z9, the Fujifilm X-H2S utilises a mechanical shutter, but its maximum burst rate is only 15 frames per second (fps).

The Fujifilm X-H2S has a fifth-generation X Processor that clocks in at 1GHz. It also has a 600MHz subprocessor that is dedicated entirely to handling the new five-axis in-body image stabilisation system, which Fujifilm claims is capable of up to seven stops of stabilisation. The other key component to the X-newly H2S’s discovered speed is its built-in image stabilisation system. In comparison, the older processor from the fourth generation ran at a maximum of 608 MHz for all of its tasks.

Because processor-intensive autofocus systems that provide real-time subject tracking have made significant advancements in the past few years, and because Fujifilm is trying to play catchup with companies like Sony and the most recent offerings from Canon and Nikon, the newly discovered headroom may prove to be crucial. Fujifilm claims that its new Deep Learning AI allows for subject detection and the tracking of human faces and eyes, animals, birds, automobiles, bikes, aeroplanes, and trains. The X-H2S is able to perform three times more autofocus calculations than Fujifilm’s own X-T4. When using the Zone AF mode, the camera gives priority to subjects that are up close and centred in the frame, with the goal of selecting the most important member of a group of people.
