NEWS: Fujifilm Launches New 26.1-Megapixel X Series Body – The X-H2S

Featuring a stunning 5th generation X-Trans CMOS 5 HS sensor and X-Processor 5 in a beautifully designed body, photographers and filmmakers alike can now create at the pace of life and the speed of their imaginations.

26.1-megapixel stacked back-side illuminated sensor

Featuring a brand new 26.1-megapixel imaging sensor that combines Fujifilm’s existing back-side illuminated technology with a stacked, layered structure that quadruples readout speeds for faster image processing capabilities.

High-speed burst shooting at up to 40 frames-per-second

X-Trans CMOS 5 HS is capable of blackout-free bursts of up to 40 frames-per-second. In burst mode, the sensor’s phase-detection pixels are controlled independently from the image display. This triples the number of possible calculations, which enables the ability to focus at incredibly high speeds between individual frames with accuracy and precision.

High-speed burst shooting at up to 30fps for over 1000 images

Increased memory capacity dramatically extends the camera’s ability to record continuous frames in burst mode without stopping. Reach blackout free speeds of up to 40fps, make over 1000 frames continuously at 30fps in JPEG, or write RAW images at 20fps* when using electronic shutter on X-H2S.

Improved autofocus for better subject tracking in almost any light

An improved AF prediction algorithm alongside X-Trans CMOS 5 HS and X-Processor 5 provides a major boost to subject tracking and autofocus accuracy on moving objects, most notably in Zone AF and low-contrast conditions.

Subject-detection autofocus

X-Processor 5 features subject-detection AF based on Deep Learning techology that automatically detects and tracks a broader range of subjects, including animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, and trains – as well as human faces and eyes, so image-makers can concentrate on composition and creativity, confident that X-H2S will track focus accurately.

Support for HEIF image format

The HEIF image format delivers 10-bit image quality in files up to 30% smaller than standard JPEG files, continuing to expand Fujifilm’s reputation of deliverying high-quality images straight out of camera.

Open Gate 6.2K/30P 4:2:2 10bit

Open Gate 6.2K movies can be recorded internally at 30P in 4:2:2 10-bit colour. X-H2S’s 26.1MP Stacked BSI CMOS sensor has an incredible readout speeds of up to 1/180 sec, when recording video at 4K/60P, which tightly controls rolling shutter effects, resulting in more natural-looking motion when recording video.

4K/120P high-speed video recording

X-H2S also supports 4K/120P high-speed video. Now, fast-moving subjects can be recorded in incredible detail for high-quality, slow-motion footage.

Up to 240 minutes of continuous recording

The camera features a new heat-dissipating structure, increasing the video recording time up to 240 minutes of 4K/60P video.

Apple ProRes support

X-H2S supports Apple ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, and ProRes 422 LT. ProRes 422 Proxy is also avaialble when recording ProRes, which can assist in streamlining post-production workflows.

Enhanced AF for video

X-H2S supports the AF+MF function when recording movies and offers subject-detection AF during video recording for accurate tracking of fast-moving subjects.

New F-Log2

In addition to F-Log, X-H2S also supports F-Log2, which records an expanded dynamic range of 14+ stops.* This range is wider than current F-Log and broadens post-production potential.

RAW output via HDMI

When combined with an ATOMOS HDMI device, the RAW video output from the X-H2S can be recorded as 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW at frame sizes up to 6.2K and frame rates up to 29.97fps. And when combined with Blackmagic Design Video Assist 12Gs, the RAW video output from the camera can be recorded as Blackmagic RAW at frame sizes up to 6.2K and frame rates up to 29.97fps.

Up to seven stops of in-body image stabilisation

An all-new 5-axis in-body image stabilisation system, made possible by X-Processor 5 and a sensing control function, provides up to seven stops of compensation. This powerful feature gives users the freedom to handhold in conditions that previously would have required support, such as sports or low light.

5.76 million dot high-resolution electronic viewfinder

The high-resolution electronic viewfinder has a 0.8x magnification and uses 5.76 million dots for incredible detail. A refresh rate of approx. 120fps supresses image blur and distortion typically caused by looking through the finder at extreme angles, making it easier to track moving subjects more accurately.

Tough, weather-resistant body for use in all conditions

With 79 weather-sealed points offering high levels of dust and moisture resistance, X-H2S is built to withstand the rigors of daily professional use and operate as normal in temperatures as low as -10°C (14°F).

Supports CFexpress Type B card

X-H2S has one CFexpress Type B memory card slot and one UHS-II SD memory card slot. Draw out the full potential of X-H2S’s incredibly fast burst mode and its professional video performance with CFexpress Type B cards.

Enhanced video functions

Video operation has been made easier, thanks to the stand-alone video-recording button and 1.62 million dot vari-angle LCD monitor, which can be fully rotated – even when HDMI and microphone cables are plugged in. A full-sized HDMI Type A port is also provided for the first time on an X Series camera.

Increased connectivity

X-H2S can be connected directly to a PC for webcam and livestreaming use in 4K, without requiring the FUJIFILM X Webcam software. It can also be combined with the optional File Transmitter FT-XH to support FTP transfer and tethering capabilities through wired and wireless internet connections, or USB-connected smartphones.
