The technical details behind this camera

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-TransT° CMOS 5 HS” sensor, capable of reading signals 4 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 the 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, a 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 T° 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.

X-Trans™ CMOS 5 HS

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

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 the 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 HO. It also has lower power consumption, extends the maximum video recording time, and supports a CFexpressT* 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 the 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. The sensor’s readout speed during video recording 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-Lop2 capability with dynamic range expanded up to 14+ stops, which enables much smoother tonal expression.

Fujifilm X-H2S Product features

Best capability to track a moving subject in the history of the X Series to capture decisive photo opportunities

The camera is equipped with a back-illuminated stacked-layer 26.16MP “X-TransT* CMOS 5 HS” sensor, the 5th generation of X Series’ image sensors. It has a signal readout speed of about 4 times faster than the current model*’ to achieve blackout-free continuous shooting of up to 40 frames per second. The camera controls phase-detection pixels independently from the image display during the burst mode. This triples the number of calculations in phase-detection information from the current model*’ 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.

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 not only the human face /eyes but also animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, and trains to maintain autofocus. Users can concentrate on photographic opportunities and framing, as the camera can keep a targeted subject in focus constantly.

Evolved video performance to cater to diverse needs

Use of the new sensor and processor has enabled saving high-definition video at 6.2K/30P 4:2:2 10bit internally, possible while retaining extensive colour information. The camera also supports filming high-speed 4K/120P video so that momentary actions of fast-moving subjects can be presented in smooth slow-motion with fine details.

The sensor‘s readout speed during video recording has been reduced to as fast as 1/180 seconds. The rolling-shutter effect is well controlled to present a moving subject naturally.

X-H2S supports three Apple ProRes codecs; ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, and ProRes 422 LT. When recording ProRes, X-H2S also supports proxy recording such as ProRes 422 Proxy, streamlining the overall workflow from filming to post-production.

Hardware/design/operabiIity to assist users’ shooting experience

The camera features an all-new five-axis in-body image stabilisation mechanism, which offers up to 7.0- a 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 in 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.

Designed to cater to the diverse photographic needs of professional photographers and videographers alike, in genres including sports and wildlife photography, the new flagship camera carries an impressive array of features, including:

• New 26.16MP X-TransTM 5 HS Stacked BSI CMOS sensor with X Processor 5 for speed and reliability

• Face/ Eye and Subject Detection with AF Tracking for fast moving photography

• Blackout free high-speed continuous shooting of up to 40fps with no crop

• High capacity buffer for extended continuous shooting: JPEG/RAW: ∞@15fps
