Fujifilm X-H2 + Fujifilm X-H2

Back in 2018/2019, “rumors” were circulating that the Fujifilm X-H line is dead.

And despite FujiRumors immediately debunking them as fake clickbait, they kept circulating and growing for many months.

But while I was sure there will be a Fujifilm X-H2 one day (although, as I told you in 2018, the wait would be very long), I didn’t see that one coming!

According to our trusted sources, Fujifilm has not one (1) but two (2) Fujifilm X-H2 cameras scheduled for release in 2022.

So, not only the X-H line is not dead, but Fujifilm will double down on it.

Of course this now complicates things a bit.

In fact, FujiRumors has already shared first specs and price indications about the Fujifilm X-H2 (list below). But now I have to figure out if it applies to both Fujifilm X-H2 cameras.

For example, will both Fujifilm X-H2 cameras feature an X-Trans sensor? Will both cameras cost below $2,500?

Let me figure this out now and stay tuned on FujiRumors for the latest Fujifilm X-H2 updates.

IMPORTANT: Huge Fujifilm announcements on September 2 at 9AM New York Time! Will we get Fujifilm X-H2 tidbits? I don’t know, but I certainly hope so.

Fujifilm X-H2 Coming with New X-Trans Sensor: My Thoughts and Your Vote!

Thanks to our sources, we know it: the Fujifilm X-H2 will feature a new X-Trans sensor!

What we also know, is that the Fujifilm X-H2 will be Fujifilm’s first camera to feature a new sensor and processor.

So here is quickly what I think about it.

Now, both color filter arrays have their strengths and weaknesses. We have written about it more in detail here. In short we could sum it up like this:

  • Bayer Array: better for more features
  • X-Trans Array: better for image quality

Again, this is a brutal simplification. If you want to understand it better, definitely read this article.

EXCLUSIVE: Fujifilm X-H2 with X-Trans or Bayer? The Answer Now on FujiRumors!

Who said the X-H line is dead? ;)

Well, certainly not FujiRumors, who warned you from all the fake X-H line is dead “rumors” already back in 2018.

The Fujifilm X-H line is not dead at all. In fact, the Fujifilm X-H2 will come, and FujiRumors has already shared a few rumors about it:

But one question I’ve often received remained unanswered (until today): will the Fujifilm X-H2 have an X-Trans sensor or a Bayer sensor?

I know this is such a divisive topic in the Fujifilm community, that no matter which choice Fujifilm makes, some will be inevitably disappointed whereas others will be happy. And I get it, as both color filter arrays have their strengths and weaknesses, as we explain here.

But now it’s time for you to know.

The Fujifilm X-H2 will feature a new X-Trans sensor.

Hold on tight guys, as more rumors will come about the Fujifilm X-H2.

But don’t get too distracted by the X-H2, as on September 2 at 9AM New York Time there will be huge Fujifilm announcements!

We will cover it all live and non stop here on fujirumors.com. And here is what you can expect:

Fujifilm X-H2: Getting 8K for Less than $2,500 and Price Comparison with Sony A1 and Canon R5

Regarding the Fujifilm X-H2, we already told exclusively to FujiRumors readers that:

Now, I have read some comments saying that less than $2,500 is still to high for an APS-C camera.

So let’s talk about it and compare it to how much you pay to get other 8K mirrorless cameras on the market today.

With a rumored Fujifilm X-H2 price of less than $2,500, the X-H2 would end up costing about half the price of the Canon EOS R5 or even about 1/3 of the Sony A1 price.

Now, I once wrote an article giving you guys 7 reasons why full frame can’t kill APS-C, and price is one of the reasons.

In fact, if the rumored price is accurate (and I have no reasons to doubt that) the Fujifilm X-H2 will once again prove my point that full frame can only match the price of APS-C cameras by sacrificing features and specs, as we explained making some real life examples here.

I guess that’s also why DPReview, Petapixel & CO consider APS-C is the sweet spot.

LOVING X-TRANS: Landslide Victory for Fujifilm X-H2 with X-Trans V vs Bayer in Survey

Recently we reported that the Fujifilm X-E4 will be the last X series camera featuring an X-Trans IV sensor, and that the next camera to come will be the Fujifilm X-H2 in 2022.

However, at this point in time we can’t say if the Fujifilm X-H2 will feature an X-Trans sensor or an Bayer sensor.

To be honest, I have received an anonymous tip about it (thanks a lot!!!), but as usual here on FujiRumors we try to give it a quick double check first before sharing.

Until then, here are a few thoughts.

Personally I love the X-Trans sensor for its better performance at high ISO (better looking grain, less color noise), the sharpness boost it delivers and more.

But I am also not a blind fanboy and I am well aware that also the Bayer sensor has its significant strengths, such as 20 to 30%a lower power consumption which leads to less heat generation, meaning you can push the camera more in terms of recording times for example. Also with Bayer sensors, stuff like digital image stabilization and pixel shift is easier to achieve. And last but not least, Bayer is more affordable!

I have elaborated in depth the Pros and Cons of Bayer and X-Trans in this article.

So, while I am in the group of people, who hopes the Fujifilm X-H2 will get an X-Trans sensor, I would totally understand if Fujifilm would go Bayer instead.

The thing is this: reading the comments, I always thought I am in the minority when it comes to the X-Trans vs Bayer debate, meaning I read more comments of people who want to get rid of X-Trans than comments of those, who want to keep it.

But a recently survey I’ve launched here, shows it is completely the opposite.

Of the Fujifilm X shooters reading FujiRumors

  • 51% want a Fujifilm X-H2 with X-Trans
  • 24% want a Fujifilm X-H2 with Bayer

The rest of the readers are either fine with both options (18%) or have not yet formed a final opinion on this (7%).

That’s a landslide victory for Fujifilm X-Trans!

And while I am with you guys on this one, if Fujifilm decided to go Bayer, it would probably not be the biggest of all drama, if they were able to take the most out of the advantages it offers, not in terms of image quality, were X-Trans is superior, but in terms of implementing new features such as digital image stabilization, pixel shift and more.

Finding out which sensor it will be, is my top priority (thanks again for the anonymous tip at this point).

The answer, my friends, will be shared hopefully sooner rather than later here on FujiRumors.
