Fujifilm X-H2S Reviews Drop on the Web, with Lots of Happy (and Well Tracked) Faces

The Fujifilm X-H2S is falling into hands of fellow X shooters, and hence reviews are spreading all over the web.

In short we can say that this camera is making lots of people very happy. :) This is autofocus performance as never seen before on any Fujifilm camera, and at that level won’t be found even on the Fujifilm X-H2 or Fujifilm X-T5, as they both will feature a non-stacked 40MP sensor.

BREAKING: Fujifilm X-H2 and Fujifilm X-T5 Coming with New Lower Base ISO (Less than 160)

Multiple trusted sources have reported to us, that the 40MP non-stacked Fujifilm X-H2 will have a lower base ISO than current Fujifilm models, including the Fujifilm X-H2S, which still has ISO 160 as its lowest native value.

I was always of the opinion that a lower base ISO should be a top priority for Fujifilm, so this rumor makes me particulary happen.

And what does this mean for the Fujifilm X-T5?

Well, our trusted sources also told us that the Fujifilm X-T5 will have the non-stacked 40MP sensor, so we can safely assume that also the Fujifilm X-T5 will have a new lower base ISO. But to be clear, that is a logical conclusion I make based on the current X-H2/X-T5 rumors, and not something a source told me explicitly.

And what about the other future Fujifilm cameras?

Now, Fujifilm has stated that except for the Fujifilm X-H line which has both sensor options, all other camera lines will either get the stacked 26MP or the 40MP non-stacked sensor. And since I don’t have information on which sensor the surviving X cameras will get, hence the Fujifilm X-Pro4, X-E5, X-S20, X-T40 and X100V successor, I can’t say which line will profit from the lower base ISO, too.

I have conflicting report until now on which the new base ISO value will be, but I am working to figure it out. I hope that very shortly I can give you the precise value.

Fujifilm X-H2: Getting 8K and 40MP for just $1,999 is Crazy Good Price Indeed – A Price Comparison with Canon R5

IN STOCK CHECK

I just shared the price for the 40MP Fujifilm X-H2, which will be of $1,999.

I called this a crazy good price in my original article, but given that there was some skepticism on my definition I think I need to give you a bit more context on why I consider the 40MP Fujifilm X-H2 very gently priced.

And in order to do that, we have to look at other high resolution non-stacked and 8K capable full frame cameras.

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

  • Canon R5 (45MP and 8K): $3,900
  • Fujifilm X-H2 (40MP and 8K): $1,999

Sure there are also other 8K mirrorless cameras out there (the 50MP Sony A1 for $6,500 and the 45MP Nikon Z9 for $5,500), but those are also stacked, so they obviously cost more and they’d make the comparison very unfair

So at the moment, the only camera it makes a bit sense to compare the Fujifilm X-H2 is the Canon R5.

And as you can see, going for a high resolution and 8K capable APS-C body (X-H2) will cost you about half the price than going with the cheapest high resolution 8K mirrorless full frame camera out there (R5).

Plus, we can also expect better heat management from the Fujifilm X-H2, due to the APS-C sensor generating overall less heat than the FF sensor. And we can see already on the 6.2K Fujifilm X-H2S how incredibly well it handles heat.

BREAKING: 40MP Fujifilm X-H2 Price Leaked now on FujiRumors

IN STOCK CHECK

Leaking a price months before the actual announcement is definitely a risk for me. Because in my experience Fujifilm can change the price tag until just hours before the final announcement.

And given that the Fujifilm X-H2 40MP will be announced in September, there is still lots of time for Fujifilm to change plans.

However, I will share it anyway, because I have received multiple confirmations from several trusted sources that this is the current price tag. It does not mean it can’t change, but it means that Fujifilm is really doing everything possible to keep that price tag.

According to several highly trusted sources, the Fujifilm X-H2 40MP non-stacked 8K capable camera will cost $1,999.

That’s a crazy good price if you ask me.

Fujifilm X-H2S and X-H2 Sensor Names Leaked (IMX695 and IMX795)

The story is this.

I’ve received the supposed sensor sheets for the X-H2S and X-H2 from an anonymous source.

I was dubious, so I didn’t share them, as we don’t do clickbait here.

The anonymous source saw that FujiRumors could not be tricked into publishing it and after a few days shared the sensor sheet of the X-H2S with the whole world.

The whole world was hungry for clicks, hence published it.

At this point also the clickbait-reluctant FujiRumors had to publish it too, but I warned readers I am dubious about it.

Well, a trusted source wanted to dissipate any doubt, and passed me something, that lead me to write this follow up article.

And today we can also unveil the names for those sensors:

  • Fujifilm X-H2S: IMX695
  • Fujifilm X-H2: IMX795

Get ready, as now fake sensor sheets with those IMX names will start appearing on the web. ;)

Anyway, I know what you think….

You think, “who the heck cares about the name of the sensor! But is that some sort of sheet showing a side-by-side specs comparison of the X-H2S and X-H2 sensor?”

Oh yes, it is a side by side specs comparison. And as you can imagine, I’ve asked for more details to my source and the permission to eventually share it.

Even with Covid on holidays, FujiRumors is always at work for you ;).
