Fujifilm launches X-H2S Mirrorless Camera
Fujifilm launched its new APS-C mirrorless camera X-H2S with a brand new 26.2-megapixel (MP) stacked BSI CMOS sensor. It weighs about 660 grams, and has a fully articulating 1.62-million dot rear display best suited for solo video shooters. It features blackout-free burst shooting of up to 40 frames per second and its AF system uses AI to detect subjects like identifying animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes and trains, and accurately tracking an intended subject. It can film 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P video and record high-definition footages. The camera has improved image resolution at low ISO sensitivity, while suppressing noise at high ISO sensitivity to produce better images.
The camera supports three Apple ProRes codecs, ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422 and ProRes 422 LT. When recording ProRes, the X-H2S also supports proxy recording such as ProRes 422 Proxy. The body includes a 5-axis in-body stabilization that offers up to 7.0-stop advantage and has a dual card slot that supports a CFexpress Type B card.
The vertical battery grip can load two of the high capacity battery “NP-W235.” It is also dust and moisture resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10℃. The camera inherits features of the FUJIFILM X-H1, such as an LCD display on the top panel for users to check settings any time. Improvements include the shutter stroke when the shutter button is half-pressed, load adjustment to the AF ON button, and materials used for buttons for enhanced operability. The design of the large grip has been brushed up to make it easier to hold for added comfort.
The X-H2S costs about $2,500.
