Fujifilm X-H2 with 8K DCI/UHD Video Coming 2022

As FujiRumors already broke a while ago, the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022.

Of course I am investigating deeper, but today I’d like to share a rumor that has been reported to me by an anoymous source, that contacted me via rumor box.

The anonmyous source told me this:

X-H2 will be capable of 8K video recording, both 8K DCI and 8K UHD

Two things first:

  1. thanks to the source for sharing this tidbit with us
  2. if you (the anonymous source) would like, you can contact me again via rumor box and give yourself a nickname, so I can eventually recognize you in future. Also via email is great [fujirumor@gmail.com]

With that said, of course, as any anonmyous rumor, we invite you to take it with a grain of salt.

However, with the Canon EOS R5 and the Sony A1 entering the 8K territory, it’s also safe to assume that the rumor is correct and that Fujifilm will also join the 8K club sooner or later.

The question at this point is if it will be “just” 8K30p like on full frame cameras, or if the Fujifilm X-H2, thanks to its smaller sensor and hence faster sensor readout, will top them all maybe by offering 8K60p.

Because that’s what happened with the Fujifilm X-T3, which was launched with 4K60p and full frame needed lots of time to finally catch up with the X-T3 specs.

Maybe (speculation, not rumor!!!) the Fujifilm X-H2 will push the boundries of mirrorless video feature even more, stepping ahead of all competitors, just as the X-T3 did back in 2018, when it offered 4K60P long before any full frame camera could do that.

In case I hear anything in this regard, I will let you know here on FujiRumors.

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-H2 Will Come in 2022 and be Worth the Wait

Fujifilm X-H2

Ok, my little boy sleeps. So let’s rock it :).

Recently Fujifilm registered a new camera, the FF210001.

The top guess in the comments was that this is the Fujifilm X-H2, and I know why.

In fact, popular youtubers and websites either gave it as a fact or speculated that the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2021.

FujiRumors preferred not to join the “X-H2 in 2021” club. What we did, though, is to contact our sources and ask them what they think about it.

Well, according to multiple trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022.

Also, our top trusted Japanese source enthusiastically wrote me it will be “well worth the wait“. We scheduled a skype talk for next days, so I hope to be able to get more details soon and be allowed to share them here on FujiRumors with you guys next.

Looks like the big breakthrough for the Fujifilm X-H2 that Fujifilm was talking about will happen, but still needs a bit more time.

Ah, one more thing: more rumors are coming ;).

Fujifilm X-T4 Anyone

Look, I own the Fujifilm X-T4, and I genuinely think that it’s an fantastic camera with the arguably best value for money ratio of any camera also in 2021.

Also, Fujifilm hinted that autofocus improvements will come via firmware update, so also this could help to make the waiting time for the Fujifilm X-H2 easier.

Good things take time. You want the X-H2 to be amazing. Fujifilm will deliver, but needs just a bit more time for that.

DPReview Studio Test Scene: 150MP Phase One XF IQ4 vs Fujifilm GFX100(S) vs Sony A7RIV vs Panasonic S1R vs Fujifilm X-T4

A few days ago, DPReview has added the Phase One XF IQ4 150 Megapixel camera to their studio test scene database.

So how does this $50,000 monster compare to our humble Fujifilm GFX100 (and hence also to the brand new $6,000 Fujifilm GFX100S)?

Well, I don’t know you, but I frankly can’t see any noticeable difference, in some cases I even think the GFX100 looks better.

At high ISO on the other hand, the GFX100 clearly performs better than the Phase One XF IQ4, even though the sensor is the same (just cut bigger on the Phase One).

This might be in part merit of the excellent Fujinon GF lenses, which have no issue to take advantage of all 100 megapixels offered by the GFX100(S). On the other hand, it might also be that both cameras just resolve basically everything possible out of the DPR studio scene.

I did also add the two current highest resolution mirrorless full frame cameras to the comparison, the 61MP Sony A7RIV and the 47MP Panasonic S1R to the chart.

Where both medium format cameras simply have no issues to resolve everything out of the chart, we can see that the full frame cameras definitely show up with more false colors, moiré and artifacts in the fine details.

Just for fun I added one comparison with the Fujifilm X-T4 vs Sony A7RIV and Panasonic S1R.

Of course the Sony and Panasonic have more resolution power, but when details become really fine, and hence when all those megapixel would be really needed, in some areas the Sony A7rIV as well as the Panasonic S1R have the tendency to show more moiré, partially ruining the megapixel advantage they have, where the X-T4 shows no moiré.

As an X-Trans lover, I do hope Fujifilm will stick with it in their APS-C cameras and offer us something around 32+MP or so in the future, maybe with the Fujifilm X-H2. I am sure it would give great results.

Down below you can see some of the screenshots I took. You can head over to the DRP studio comparison tool and make your own comparisons.

Fujifilm GFX100S “More Than Full Frame” Promo Series… and How Suddenly Sensor Size Does Not Matter Anymore for Some Youtubers ;)

Fujifilm has launched a series of promo videos called “more than full frame“.

But unlike the title might suggest, the promo videos talk less about specs, but are more on the inspirational side… and I like that for sure!

I will share all videos below, but let me add a little note first.

After the Fujifilm GFX100S was announced, I saw a few videos of big youtubers, who consistently stood behind full frame as the only real professional format (ignoring that Fuji APS-C cameras creamed off the most prestigious awards), saying basically the following things about the GFX100S.

  • having a 70% “fuller” sensor than full frame does not really make a lot of difference
  • having more pixels and a bit more dynamic range does not really make a lot of difference
  • it is more important to have passion for photography and have a system that inspires you to shoot

Sure, I can understand that some influencers, who have strong connections with brands that don’t produce medium format cameras (and are not committed to APS-C), are arguing a bit contradictory and confusing these days.

If they say sensor size does not matter, then people will ask them “so why not go with cheaper and smaller APS-C systems“, and if they say sensor size matters, then people will ask “then why not go GFX?”.

In this regard, I respect youtubers like Tony Northrup, who just consistently said that he does care about megapixel and the more megapixel he gets, the better it is for him. Or also Jared Polin, who in a video asked Fujifilm to send him a GFX100S for testing (but Jared, maybe we can schedule a call first to organize a Fuji crash course, so that you avoid flaming again that you can’t move the focus point while face detection is enabled ;)).

And what does FujiRumors say about the sensor size debate?

Simple and true: every system has its strengths.

As for hybrid cameras, I consider APS-C the ultimate sweet spot (and so do these industry insiders like Richard Butler from DPReview and Co).

There are APS-C specific advantages and also GFX specific advantages. And of course, full frame has its strengths too.

It’s just great we have all this choice and whatever people pick, it’s surely the best system for their needs.

Personally, I am very happy with my Fujifilm X system. It’s so flexible. Small lens, big lens, fast lens, compact lens, bulky camera, super compact camera, affordable, expensive, hyperbolic specs, simplicity, retro, modern… there is so much to pick from depending on needs and taste in the Fujifilm X system, that I personally do not see any need to go full frame. I’d lose more than I’d gain (for my personal needs and preferences).

If I’d add a system to my camera bag, at this point I’d just go for the very best image quality I can get (for a reasonable price), hence with a sensor that is 70% “fuller” than full frame. Especially now, where the Fujifilm GFX100S dropped for a price cheaper than the Sony A1 and a body smaller than the Panasonic S1R.

But that’s just me, my needs, my taste, and totally personal.

If you shoot full frame and say it’s the best of the best, then it surely is like this for you, and you are blessed with lots of mirrorless options, too.
