BREAKING: Fujifilm X-H2 Coming 2022 with 40 (not 43) Megapixel Sensor

Fujifilm X-H2

We have to be clear and careful.

So let’s start with what Fujifilm told us at the recent Fujifilm X Summit here:

And indeed, last year Sony has released a brand new 43 megapixel APS-C stacked BSI sensor.

So it’s a done deal, right? We will get a Fujifilm X-H2 with 43 megapixel APS-C stacked BSI sensor as everybody speculates based on Sony’s sensor offering?

Well, no!

After the X summit, several trusted sources reached out to us and wanted me to inform fellow FR-readers, that the Fujifilm X-H2 will have a 40 megapixel sensor.

No more details given for now.

Now, I don’t know if it is the same 43 megapixel sensor we talked about earlier, but Fujifilm will effectively use only 40 of those for some obscure reason, or if it’s simply just another sensor we don’t know about yet. I will investigate this and let you know.

What is sure, is that once the Fujifilm X-H2 hits the market, it will be sold and marketed as a 40MP camera.

And quite frankly, in a world where every megapixel matters, it would be a bad marketing move to use a 43MP sensor and advertise it as a lower resolution 40MP sensor. So my guess (not rumor, guess), is that it’s a true 40 megapixel sensor.

But…

Attention…

FujiRumors already and exclusively told you that there will be two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras coming.

Will both feature this 40MP sensor, maybe one in X-Trans version and the other with a more affordable Bayer sensor? Or will one have a selfie screen and the other a 3 way tilt screen? A retro and a PSAM version? Or will there be two completely different sensors? Or maybe it’s the same sensor, just one in a video oriented camera maybe even with built-in fan, and a more stills oriented body?

Questions, that shall not remain unanswered for too long. Just follow FujiRumors and your doubts and questions will dissipate soon enough ;).

Until then, check out our initial X-H2 rumored specs list.

Fujifilm Unveils Details About Next APS-C Sensor Generation (for X-H2): BSI, X-Trans and Stacked!

Ok guys, the Fujifilm X summit just ended.

A lot has been shared, from X mount roadmap to GF lens roadmap, new product annoucnements and more. So check out our X summit live coverage.

What almost passed unnoticed, is the very last minute of the video, where Fujifilm announced the next generation sensor for the Fujifilm X system.

According to Fujifilm managers, it will be a stacked backside illuminated X-Trans sensor.

Now, thanks to FujiRumors leaks, we already knew it would be an X-Trans sensor, and we also knew that Sony has indeed a 43 Megapixel stacked BSI sensor available.

And to be clear, during the entire event, the Fujifilm X-H2 has not been mentioned a single time.

However, what we also know thanks to our sources, is that there will be two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras. Will both use this very same sensor? Will both be X-Trans? Or will the difference be on the ergnomic front (selfie vs 3-way tilt screen, PSAM vs retro dials)?

Questions… questions that FujiRumors will answer for you, don’t worry about that. Just follow us.

SURPRISE: Fujifilm X Summit Starting at 9AM EST with Never Rumored Surprises

Do you like surprises? If so, then stay glued on FujiRumors today.

A few hours after I’ve published this article, where I ask the FR-reader community if there is something they’d liked to be surprised with at the X summit at 9AM New York time, trusted sources contacted me and wanted me (and you) to know that at the Fujifilm X summit there will be “so far not rumored surprises“.

I did ask if it’s maybe a development announcement of the Fujifilm X-H2 (or of both Fujifilm X-H2’s I better say), or epic Kaizen firmware announcements and so forth, but no further hints have been given to me, so it will be a surprise for all of us, me included.

One more excellent reason to stay tuned on FujiRumors, where at 9AM New York time we will live stream the Fujifilm X summit and at 10AM New York time we will start the announcement live blog.
