Perfect for the next generation of hybrid image makers, X-H2 blends the compact and lightweight versatility of APS-C mirrorless cameras with an unmatched back-side illuminated X-Trans CMOS 5 HR imaging sensor. The result gives image-makers 40-megapixels of resolution that brings life to the details of any image. Add in an optimized pixel layout that promises exceptional detail, unrivaled color accuracy, and impressive video flexibility, these game-changing features are made possible only with X-Processor 5, which delivers lightning-fast performance to help X-H2 deliver 8K/30p video, enhanced autofocus capabilities, and black-out free image bursts at 15fps. Not to mention, it’s also more efficient than its predecessor, boosting battery performance by 10%.
X-H2 uses its native 8K video resolution to give filmmakers several ways of unlocking the camera’s true potential. From being able to increase the focal length of any lens with the camera’s 2x digital zoom, when recording up to 4K, to delivering incredible 4K video by down sampling from the camera.
Apple ProRes 10-bit 4:2:2 footage can be recorded internally at up to 8K/30p using a CFexpress Type B card, while 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW*1 or Blackmagic RAW footage can be recorded to compatible external devices via the full-size HDMI Type A port on the side of the camera. Additionally, when recording video using the F-Log2 colour profile, X-H2’s dynamic range extends to 13+ stops – a one-stop improvement over the previous sensor, enhancing post-production flexibility. X-H2 can also record continuously for up to 160 minutes at 25°C (77°F) and can be extended to 240 minutes with the optional X-H2 clip-on fan.
An X Series first: Pixel Shift Multi-Shot
X-H2 is the first X Series to feature Pixel Shift Multi-Shot, which delivers 160-megapixel images for the ultimate quality when detail really matters. A staple of GFX System cameras, Pixel Shift Multi-Shot records 20 frames, shifting the sensor by 0.5 pixels between each frame. Resulting images are automatically combined into one DNG RAW file, which can be output to a desired file format using suitable RAW processing software. This ground-breaking feature is invaluable for archival recording and other commercial applications where colour fidelity and fine detail are paramount. Using Pixel Shift Multi-Shot ensures false colours and moiré effects are suppressed to such an extent as to be virtually non-existent.
Power and control whenever needed
X-H2 has a feature set designed to support creatives in their pursuit of the ultimate stills or video. Improved in-body image stabilization (IBIS), for example, offers seven stops of compensation and features an enhanced algorithm that
improves motion detection. This produces shake-free results in more scenarios than ever before, most notably when panning or following subjects on foot for video.
For stills photographers, full-resolution images can be recorded at an incredible 15 frames-per-second when using the mechanical shutter, while those switching to the electronic shutter can work at 20fps in the 1.29x crop factor option. Further high-speed options are provided by the electronic shutter’s 1/180,000 sec top speed, while photographers seeking optimum quality will welcome the lower minimum ISO 125.
A complete workflow solution
Thanks to its broad range of wired and wireless options for transferring image and video data, X-H2 is a true multimedia creative tool. The camera body supports wireless image transfer through the Fujifilm Remote Camera App and natively delivers webcam resolutions of up to 4K/60p for a high-quality live streaming experience. With the optional VFT-XH Wireless File Transmitter Battery Grip, however, functionality is expanded even further. The grip adds tethering connections and FTP file transfer through Wi-Fi, Ethernet and smartphone connections, plus the Remote Rec function. This enables up to four camera bodies, with VFT-XH battery grips attached, to be connected and controlled via a web browser on a computer, tablet or smartphoneKey Specifications
