BREAKING: Two Fujifilm X-H2 Cameras Coming Different Megapixel Number (one 40 MP and the Other?)

Black Friday Pages

If you follow FujiRumors regularly then you’ll already know that there will be two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras and both will feature a different sensor.

You will also know that one of them will feature a 40 megapixel sensor.

So what about the other one? I did tell you previously that my priority is to find out the answer to the following questions:

  • Will both X-H2 cameras have a 40 Megapixel sensor? (maybe an X-Trans and a Bayer version)?
  • Will both X-H2 cameras have a stacked sensor?
  • Will both X-H2 cameras have an X-Trans sensor?

Well, a trusted source now reached out to us and told FujiRumors that there will be indeed a 40 megapixel Fujifilm X-H2 and that the other Fujifilm X-H2 will have a different megapixel number (not 40MP).

Look guys, I know all this is hard to believe.

In fact, since today Fujifilm always took one sensor and squeezed it for 2 or 3 years into all possible X series bodies. And this is why I understand if many of you are skeptical about these rumors.

But that’s what my sources tell me, and as I do since a decade of blogging now, I simply trust them blindly.

Calls with sources are scheduled already. So expect updates soon.

Fujifilm X-H2 Coming 2022 with Huge Computational Photography Boost?

Fujifilm X-H2

What could be a good topic to talk about this weekend?

Let me think…

What about the Fujifilm X-H2? Is that OK?

And more precisely, could 2022 be the year that will see a huge computational photography boost in Fujifilm X series cameras, starting with the Fujfiilm X-H2?

I think it could be, and here is why.

Recently I wrote an article called “Top 7 Critiques on Fujifilm that Are Absolutely Justified”.

In that article, I said that Fujifilm should hire the best firmware guy there is, and develop tons of artificial intelligence features, as this is one area where APS-C cameras can easily beat full frame and medium format cameras, as I also explained in my article 7 advantages of APS-C over FF article.

The smaller the sensor, the faster the processing, the less the heat, the more the camera is free to make its computational photography magic.

While writing that article, I remembered that back in 2019, top manager Toshihisa IIda did announced a 3 year computational photography plan and said:

  • In 3 years, AI (artificial intelligence or computational photography) will become important part of photography
  • AI will not manage or control, but help photographers to take better images in an easier way

And more recently here, Japanese Fujifilm managers said:

  • If sensor and processor are very fast, then you can do lots of things with computational photography

Well, it looks like Fujifilm plans to give the X series a massive AI boost by 2022 (according to their own 3 years AI roadmap set back in 2019). And guess which camera is set for 2022 announcement? You got it, the Fujifilm X-H2.

So, in terms of new technology, the Fujifilm X-H2 will not only give us a new hardware platform (new sensor and processor), but, if Fujifilm respects their own timeline, we might see also lots of computational magic being implemented in the X-H2.

Btu to be clear: this is not a rumor. I have no idea what the X-H2 will bring in terms of AI features. But Fujifilm itself hinted that by 2022 something will happen in this department. So feel free to let us know which AI features you’d like to get on the Fujifilm X-H2.

Computational Photography – Good or Bad?

So the top 3 questions I will try to answer for you as soon as possible are:

  1. will both X-H2 cameras have 40 MP?
  2. will both X-H2 cameras have X-Trans?

Fujifilm FF210002 Registration Found (Fujifilm X-H2?)

VERY LAST HOURS – save 28% on Capture One 22 pre-upgrades (click here) (20% discount offered by Capture One plus additional 10% with code FUJIRUMORS).
No better pre-upgrade deal is coming, not even at Black Friday. This is the best deal and it will end at 6PM New York Time today!

Nokishita spotted the registration for a new Fujifilm camera with the code name FF210002.

Fujifilm’s unreleased digital camera “FF210002” has been registered with an overseas certification body. Equipped with Wi-Fi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) and Bluetooth

As we saw in the past, it can take up to 6 months between a spotted registration and a final announcement. For example the X-H1 appeared 6 months after registration. Moreover, we are in crazy parts shortage times, so I’d not bet on anything right now.

FujiRumors already told you that Fujifilm’s first camera with new sensor and processor will be the Fujifilm X-H2.

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-H2 Coming with Two Different Sensors

Fujifilm X-H2

Recently I wrote an article, where I said that Fujifilm should do it a bit like Sony, and offer different sensors in the same camera.

However, I also said that I don’t believe that will happen, as at the recent X summit, Fujifilm has teased one (1) new sensor coming, not two.

But well, I was wrong.

A trusted source reached out to us and told me that yes, there will be indeed two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras coming as FujiRumors already told, but the source added that the two Fujifilm X-H2 cameras will feature two “different” sensors.

No more details given to me for now.

So I guess the question now is, what does “different sensors” mean?

FujiRumors already told you that there will be a 40 megapixel sensor in the Fujifilm X-H2. So at least in one of them (if not both) will come with 40 Megapixel.

Maybe there will there be one 40 megapixel X-Trans and one 40 megapixel Bayer sensor Fujifilm X-H2? With X-Trans for better image quality and the Bayer sensor for a more affordable X-H2 version? We have explained the X-Trans/Bayer difference recently here.

Or will there be two completely different sensors? With different megapixel or even different sensor technologies?

Again, keep in mind that all Fujifilm announced is one (1) new BSI stacked X-Trans sensor.

So the options I see are these:

  • Fujifilm is hiding something from us
  • FujiRumors is wrong and there will be just one X-H2 with one sensor
  • there will be two X-H2 cameras and both will feature a stacked BSI sensor

Another question: will both Fujifilm X-H2 have the identical body, or will the body be a bit different? Maybe one more video-centric body with external fan and selfie screen and one more photo-centric body with 3-way tilt screen and more compact?

It happens rarely, but I admit I am a bit confused at this point.

If anybody out there can help me out of this state of puzzlement, feel free to contact me via fujirumor@gmail.com (with real or fake email) or anonymously via rumor box (you can use a nickname so I can recognize you in future).

You can also reach out to me via personal message on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Fujifilm X-H2 with Stacked Sensor: What’s the Right Price for You? (But Do NOT Compare it to the New Sony A7IV)

Here is what is happening in these days.

Since the announcement of the new Sony A7IV, I am receiving lots of emails and also comments here on FujiRumors, pressing me to share more Fujifilm X-H2 rumors.

So let me say a few quick things:

First: I can share rumors only when I either have them or I have permission to share them. So if anyone out there would like to help me to put fire in the Fujifilm community with some X-H2 rumors, then feel free to contact me either via email at fujirumor@gmail.com or via PM on our social media. Also the rumor box is always there for you. If you use it, feel free to give yourself a nickname.

Second: I can confirm that the Fujifilm X-H2 price tag should not be higher and possibly be even lower than $2,500.

So is this a good price tag or is it too expensive?

Considering that the new Sony A7IV costs $2,500, one might think that the rumored Fujifilm X-H2 pricing is too close to the one of the Sony A7IV.

But here is the thing: the Fujifilm X-H2 can’t be really compared to the Sony A7IV. In fact, as Fujifilm itself proudly announced back at the Fujifilm X summit, the next generation Fujifilm cameras will feature a stacked BSI sensor. And as we know, the Sony A7IV has a non-stacked BSI sensor, basically the same technology we find in the $1,699 Fujifilm X-T4.

So you got the point: the Fujifilm X-H2 should be compared to other stacked sensor cameras, such as the Sony A9II, the Canon R3 and the Sony A1. So let’s do it now:

So you see that the other stacked sensor option out there on the market are at least 2K+ more expensive.

And if you look for 8K in a mirrorless camera, then here are your options:

So also in this case, the Fujifilm X-H2 will be at least $1,500 more affordable than competing 8K cameras.

There is no way around it: the sensor is a very expensive (if not the most expensive) component of a camera. For example, Fujifilm paid $2,000 for the older 50MP sensor in the original GFX50S). So, the smaller the sensor, the more affordable you can make the camera.

And as I wrote in a recent article called “top 10 attacks on Fujifilm that don’t make sense“, you simply can pack more specs for less money in an APS-C camera over a Full Frame camera. And this will be the case also with the Fujifilm X-H2, which offers a stacked sensor at a price full frame can’t not even nearly match.

Now keep all this in mind when, in the survey down below, I ask you what would be the right pricing according to you for the Fujifilm X-H2.

The Fujifilm X-H2 with Stacked sensor should cost...

DPRTV Fujifilm XF23mmF1.4 R WR LM Review (vs original 23mm): “Outstandingly Sharp” but Only Fujifilm X-H2 Will Unlock Its Full Potential

DPReviewTV is pretty impressed with the brand new Fujifilm 23mm f1.4 WR LM. They also compare it to Fujifilm’s original 23mm F1.4 to see how they compare.

Btw. the original XF23mmF1.4 was a spectacular performer at the recent wedding I photographed. So the true challenge for Fujifilm was to improve something that is already really good, and it looks like they succeeded with it.

Moreover, keep in mind that we don’t see the real sharpness potential of any of the latest Fujinon lenses, as those will be visible only as soon as the 40 megapixel Fujifilm X-H2 hits the market in 2022.
