Get ready to have your mind blown! The new Fujifilm X-H2S is a serious hybrid camera that produces spectacular video and stills. With a new 26.16MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HS Sensor and an X-Processor 5 to match, the camera’s autofocus operates with lightning precision, so you get the best professional sports and wildlife photos or cinematic movies. If that’s not enough, the Japanese brand has added an all-new five-axis in-body image stabilisation mechanism, which offers up to a 7-stop advantage!

The X-H2S is the new flagship model boasting the highest performance of any X Series camera to date. This has been made possible by the new stacked-layer back-illuminated 26.16MP "X-Trans CMOS 5 HS" sensor, capable of reading signals four times faster than the previous model, and the high-speed "X-Processor 5" boasting double the processing speed of the previous model.

The X-H2S features an evolved AF system to enable continuous high-speed shooting up to 40 frames per second, a newly-developed subject-recognition AF technology, and capability to record 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P video. Other features include the five-axis in-body image stabilisation that offers up to a 7.0- stop advantage highly-robust magnesium body, hardware that incorporates operability improved from the previous model, as well as extensive interface options, including the new slot for a CFexpress Type B card and an optional file transmitter (sold separately). The new camera caters to the diverse photographic needs of professional photographers and videographers in categories including sports photography, bird photography and other on-location work.

New Sensor: X-Trans CMOS 5 HS

This 26.16MP image sensor inherits the previous model's back-illumination style and adopts the stacked-layer structure to become the first stacked APS-C sensor capable of quadrupling the read signal speed compared to the current model. It has dramatically improved performance, including up-to-40fps blackout-free burst mode and significantly better AF rate during continuous shooting. As for video performance, the sensor can record 4K/60P video without cropping and with substantially reduced rolling-shutter effect.

New X-Processor 5

The all-new processor has double the processing speed of the previous model. It has improved image quality at low ISO and reduced noise at high sensitivity in stills while delivering significantly improved AF accuracy and speed. The processor also enables subject-detection and AF tracking of a targeted subject with increased accuracy. In video, the processor enables filming 4:2:2 10bit video at 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P and supports a variety of codecs, including Apple ProRes 422. It also has lower power consumption, extending the maximum video recording time and supports a CFexpress Type B memory card.

The X-H2S makes full use of the capability of the fifth-generation sensor and processor to achieve a substantial performance improvement.

Major boost to the burst mode capability: The camera can apply AF/ AE tracking in blackout-free continuous shooting of up to 40 frames per second and can shoot over 1,000 frames continuously when setting the high-speed burst shooting mode to 30 frames per second (JPEG) or 20 frames per second (RAW).

Dramatically Evolved AF Performance

The increased number of AF calculations performed per second has improved AF accuracy, provides a subject-recognition AF function, and improves the prediction algorithm to dramatically improve Zone AF and the capability to track a moving subject under a low-contrast environment.

Improved video performance

The camera supports recording 4:2:2 10bit video at 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P internally. During video recording, the sensor's readout speed has been improved to 1/180 seconds, suppressing the rolling shutter effect. It supports three Apple ProRes codecs; ProRes 422 HO, ProRes 422, and ProRes 422 LT. When recording ProRes, X-H2S also supports proxy recording such as ProRes 422 Proxy. Another new feature is F-Log2 capability, with a dynamic range expanded to 14+ stops, enabling much smoother tonal expression.

Stand Out Features

The camera is equipped with a back-illuminated stacked-layer 26.16MP "X-Trans CMOS 5 HS" sensor, the 5th generation of X Series' image sensors. It has a signal readout speed about four times faster than the current model' 9 to achieve blackout-free continuous shooting of up to 40 frames per second. The camera controls phase-detection pixels independently from image display during the burst mode. This triples the number of calculations in phase-detection information from the current model' 9 and enables high-speed focusing even during high-speed continuous shooting of 40 frames per second, thereby significantly improving AF accuracy in the burst mode.

The use of the new sensor and the processor is coupled with an increased built-in memory buffer capacity to dramatically increase the number of frames that can be continuously recorded in the burst mode. When using the electronic shutter, the camera can shoot over 1,000 frames continuously at up to 30fps in JPEG and 20fps in RAW.

The EVF uses a high-resolution 5.76-million-dot OLED panel with a magnification of 0.8x. The smooth viewfinder with a frame rate of approx. 120fps also offers improved visibility thanks to strong suppression of distortion that can occur when an eye position becomes displaced while using the viewfinder, thereby enabling accurate tracking of subject movements.

Substantially evolved AF performance with the use of new devices and enhanced algorithm The new devices and improved prediction algorithm for AF have led to a major boost in the camera's capability to track a moving subject and autofocus accurately in Zone AF or in low-contrast conditions. This means a continuously moving subject can be accurately tracked, an ideal feature for sports and wildlife photography.

The new image processor features a subject-detection AF function, developed with Deep Learning technology. It detects and automatically tracks the human face /eyes and animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, aeroplanes and trains to maintain autofocus. Users can concentrate on photographic opportunities and framing, as the camera can constantly keep a targeted subject in focus.

New Five-axis In-body Image Stabilisation

The camera features an all-new five-axis in-body image stabilisation mechanism, which offers up to a 7-stop advantage thanks to the new processor and a new sensing control function. Users can comfortably choose to handhold the camera to shoot active situations such as sports or low light conditions.

The new camera inherits the popular design features of the X-H1, such as a large grip that works well with large lenses, an LCD display on the top panel for users to check settings at any time, and a highly robust camera body that withstands heavy professional use.
