RUMOR: Fujifilm X-H2 with 13 Stops of Video Dynamic Range

According to trusted information we have received, the Fujifilm X-H2 will have 13 stops of video dynamic range.

The Fujifilm X-H2S is better in this regard, as it offers 14+ stops of video dynamic range.

When it comes to stills, we confirm that Fujifilm will market the X-H2 as having improved low/high ISO performance. We remind you that the base ISO of the X-H2 will be ISO125.

CineD and Gerald Undone About Excellent Lab Test Results of Fujifilm X-H2S and Fujifilm’s Strategic Advantage over Sony and Canon

CineD and Gerald Undone recently published a video where they talk about how they make their lab tests.

It’s a one hour video I invite you to look in its entirety.

What I will highlight are 6 minutes towards the end of the video where they talk about the excellent test results of the Fujifilm X-H2S (starts minute 48:35).

They talk about how different and pleasing noise actually looks on the Fujifilm X-H2S (not the first to say this and actually that’s a peculiarity of X-Trans sensors, I mean the more film-like grain at high ISO and the less color noise).

So it seems that when Fujifilm advertises the X-H2S as having 14+ stops of video dynamic range, they are totally honest about it. In CineD tests, it beats even the full frame Sony A1.

But even more importantly, if you want to get rid of noise, for some “secret language” reason (as Gerald would call it), it seems that at least noise reduction applied in post is able to clean up noise with an ease he has never seen before.

Also, CineD mentions a strategic advantage Fujifilm has over Sony and Canon. Which one? You’ll find the answer in the short summary down below.

DPR Fujifilm X-H2S Lab Test Results: Despite Big Speed Increase, Comparable Image Quality with X-T3 and X-T4

DRPeview has added the Fujifilm X-H2S to their lab test comparison tool. Their findings:

  • Overall, this is a good result: we were impressed with the X-T3 and 4, so maintaining comparable image quality despite the big speed increase is a creditable result.
  • slight increase in read noise as a result of the fast readout being seen as a reduction in usable dynamic range.

You can read it all and play around with their comparison tool here.
