FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO, Representative Director: Teiichi Goto) is pleased to announce the launch of the mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-H2S” (X-H2S) in July 2022. The camera joins the lineup of the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras, which are renowned for their outstanding image quality in both stills and videos, delivered with Fujifilm’s proprietary color reproduction technology.
The X-H2S is a new flagship model boasting the highest performance in both stills and videos in the history of the X Series. This has been made possible by the use of the new stacked-layer back-illuminated 26.16MP “X-TransTM CMOS 5 HS”*2sensor capable of reading signals 4 times faster than the previous model*1, and the high-speed “X-Processor 5” boasting double the processing speed of the previous model*3.
The X-H2S features an evolved AF system capable of shooting up to 40 frames per second and offering newly-developed subject-recognition AF technology, and can even film 6.2K/30P and 4K/120P video. Other features include the five-axis in-body image stabilization that offers up to 7.0-stop advantage*4, highly-robust magnesium body, hardware that incorporates operability improved from the previous model, as well as extensive interface options including the new slot for a CFexpressTM Type B card*5 and an optional file transmitter (sold separately). The new camera caters to the diverse photographic needs of professional photographers and videographers in both stills and videos in categories including sports photography, bird photography and single-person on-location work.
In 2012, Fujifilm released the mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-Pro1” featuring an image sensor and a processor developed in-house. Since then, the company has evolved the X Series, releasing four generations of the devices over the last decade in pursuit of advanced image quality and portability. With the launch of the latest model “X-H2S,” the X Series heralds the arrival of the fifth generation of devices, X-TransTM CMOS 5 HS and X-Processor 5.
