This LEAKED Internal Fujifilm X-H2 Document Confirms Fujifilm’s Plan to Advertise X-H2 as Having Improved Low/High ISO Performance

If you have seen our big yearly rumor roundup, you’ll have noticed that out of 85 rumors, I’ve listed 2 as wrong and 83 as correct.

And I was extremely severe to myself, as one of the wrong rumors was that I said Fujifilm would advertise the X-H2 40MP as having better low and high ISO performance.

But here is the thing:

When the X-H2 was launched, Fujifilm did not use the words “better low and high ISO performance“, but they talked about “better Signal to Noise Ratio” and “better Dynamic Range” and “wider pixel saturation” and “new base ISO 125” and more of this stuff.

That’s close, very close. But not 1:1 identical to what I said. So I decided to move it into the wrong section.

Well, it seems that our sources wanted me to start the year by being not too harsh on myself and they’ve forwarded me a slide of the internal Fujifilm training material, that said exactly that: X-H2 has “improved Low/High ISO“.

So, first and foremost huge thanks to all our sources, including the one who helped me out today. Without you, FujiRumors would be just half as fun as it is and being a Fuji shooter would be so more boring.

Also, I’d certainly I would make many more errors without you, as I would have no reliable guidance through the think jungle of fake rumors I receive every week.

Second, I will not correct my original rumor check, as at the end what matters is what Fujifilm said in public, and not the marketing material that circulates behind closed doors.

But at least you guys know that I am not following the sad trend to make up stuff for traffic. That’s not who we are and I leave these things to others.

What we share is what we trust in. And sure, even then I can be wrong sometimes. But I know I’ve tried all I can to be as accurate as possible.

Fujifilm X-H2s Product of the Year 2022 – DPR

DPR has just declared the Fujifilm X-H2s “product of the year 2022”.

The Fujifilm X-H2S is our product of the year, primarily because it’s an excellent camera, but also because it’s an ambitious one. Stacked CMOS technology has underpinned a host of fast-shooting cameras in the past few years, including the OM System OM-1 that can shoot at up to 50fps with autofocus and the Sony a1, which combines 50MP resolution with the ability to shoot at 30 frames per second, but Fujifilm has done more than just offer pure speed. As was done with the OM-1, Fujifilm has also used the fast sensor to deliver information to a series of AF algorithms trained to recognize subjects, but on top of this, the company has also raised its game in terms of video.

The X-H2S’s video specs build on what the company had done with the X-T4, adding very high bitrate ProRes recording. On top of this is the addition of the F-Log2 profile, which encodes a wider dynamic range, and the camera’s ability to shoot in 14-bit mode to improve deep shadow noise when doing so. So, while we feel the Canon EOS R6 Mark II’s image quality gives it the win in the mid-price camera category, we think the X-H2S is the more ambitious product, raising our expectations of what a hybrid camera can do.

Congratulations to anyone who bought the Fujifilm X-H2s…. I wish you lots of fun and great moments with it :)

Fujifilm X-H2/s Victory Parade Begins: CineD Declares X-H2 Best Mirrorless Camera of 2022 and Explora Awards X-H2 and X-H2S

Explora

Oh yes… it’s that time of the year when everybody starts listing the best and worst gear of the year.

The first list we got is this one over at Explora, where the B&H team declared the Fujifilm X-H2 and X-H2s the best cameras of 2022.

  1. Fujifilm X-H2S & Fujifilm X-H2
  2. Sony A7rV
  3. Hasselblad X2D 100C
  4. Leica M11
  5. Panasonic GH6
  6. Canon R6
  7. OM-1
  8. Canon R7
  9. Nikon Z30

You can read why they included both X-H2 and X-H2s on the top spot and what they say about it, read the full article at B&H Explora.

CineD

CineD does not limit themselves to test gear in a lab. Nope, they actually work with the cameras, shoot mini-documentaries and are out on the field with gear that needs to get the job done.

And from all cameras launched in 2022, the one that really stood out for them was the Fujifilm X-H2.

So much so, that they declared it the best mirrorless camera of 2022 (for video).

It’s no surprise that it won over the Fujifilm X-T5, as CineD is more video-centric in their content creation, and for that purpose the Fujifilm X-H2 simply offers more flexibility over the X-T5.

With up to 8K ProRes HQ internal recording and a 40.2MP sensor, this camera is aimed to satisfy the needs of serious content creators. This camera is extremely flexible when it comes to recording formats and resolutions, promising to assist you when negotiating with clients about their final output needs.

This FUJIFILM X-H2 has become an all-rounder for us at CineD. It’s like having a “Swiss Army Knife” at our disposal.

Understanding Fujifilm X-H2S versus X-H2… and Which One Would you Pick? (POLL)

Michael from Fujifilm explains the big and small differences between the Fujifilm X-H2s and Fujifilm X-H2, two Fujifilm mirrorless cameras released 3 months apart from each other, both built on the same magnesium alloy body.

And now that we know everything about these cameras (price, specs, performance, etc), I was curious to know which one you would pick if you had to buy one of them. Would you get the X-H2 or the X-H2s?
