Fujifilm North American has announced the launch of its next flagship X Series mirrorless digital camera, the X-H2S (X-H2S).
Dubbed the most advanced X Series mirrorless camera yet, X-H2S includes advanced features for both still photography and video. It is also the first APS-C digital camera of its kind to feature Fujifilm’s 26.16MP X-TransTM CMOS 5 HS imaging sensor, a stacked, back-side illuminated imaging sensor with a signal reading speed up to four times faster than Fujifilm’s previous X-TransTM CMOS 41.
The X-H2S is the first X Series camera to feature the 26.1MP X-Trans 5 stacked back-illuminated sensor. Building on the unique X-Trans colour filter array that minimizes moiré and false colours, placing the sensor’s circuitry on a separate layer from the pixels delivers better image quality, says Fujifilm, thanks to expanded low light capabilities and up to 14-stops of dynamic range.
When it comes to video, up to 90 minutes of footage can be recorded internally at a wide range of resolutions and frame rates up to 6.2K/30P (in full-sensor 3:2 aspect ratio), 4K/120P, and Full HD/240P.
The autofocusing system in X-H2S is quick and capable of working in light levels down to -7EV and keeping up with both fast and erratically moving subjects. It now features Subject Detection autofocus, using AI. Face and eye detection capabilities have been expanded to pick up hairlines, glasses, and face coverings.
In addition to a wide range of internal video recording features, X-H2S provides significant flexibility for external recording. F-Log or F-Log2, Apple ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW footage can all be recorded to an external device through the camera’s standard, Type A HDMI port. Unlock the full capability of X-H2S’s unmatched image quality by recording F-Log or F-Log2 in resolutions of up to 6.2K in Apple ProRes RAW (with the Atomos Ninja V+ HDR monitor recorder) and Blackmagic RAW (with the Blackmagic Design Video Assist monitor).
In addition, Fujifilm is announcing the Fujinon XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR Lens and the Fujinon XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR telephoto zoom lens.
