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.

What’s Next for GFX? The Rise of Speculations (and My Take on Them)

There is pattern in the Fujifilm world.

And the pattern is, that the sensor used on the X series, later on finds its way also on the GFX series.

The only difference? The sensor used in the GFX series comes from the same silicon wafer of the one used for the X series, it is just cut out 4 times bigger (and of course with different CFA array on top, meaning a Bayer vs an X-Trans one).

That’s a well known fact for FR-readers, but in case you are still hesitant about it, just read what Fujifilm Nordic told in March 2022, confirming that X and GFX share the same technology also in terms of sensor and processor. Hence, looking at the X series will give indications also on the future of the GFX series.

Well, so let’s look at it.

In terms of 5th generation sensors we have:

Assuming that Fujifilm will continue to share the same sensor platform on the X and GFX system, and considering the statements made by Fujifilm Nordic, people believe that Fujifilm will soon launch new GFX cameras using the sensor technology of the X-H2 cameras.

And if I’d sum up the most “rumored” options for the future of GFX, I’d nail it down to three cameras that people think could come in a not so distant future::

  1. Fujifilm GFX100S with 102 MP stacked BSI sensor
  2. Fujifilm GFX150S (or GFX160S) with 158 MP non-stacked BSI sensor
  3. Fujifilm GFX100S MKII (same sensor of current GFX100S but with new processor)

So is this really the case? Let’s talk about it.
