Understanding the Fujifilm X-H2S and Fujifilm X-H2

The Fujifilm X-H2S and X-H2 are interesting cameras, but it looks like some photographers might be confused by the naming conventions and specs so Fujifilm released a video for them, which you can watch above or get a summary of below:

Understanding the Fujifilm X-H2S vs. X-H2

  • X-H2S costs $500 more than the X-H2
  • They are the exact same bodies with the same weather sealing, IBIS, card slots, full-size HDMI, USB-C, battery grips, cooling can, XLR input adapter, processor, and shutter
  • The sensors in these cameras are very different with the X-H2S having a 26MP stacked BSI sensor and the X-H2 having a 40MP BSI sensor
  • Both cameras have very accurate AF, but the stacked sensor in the X-H2S lets you focus faster, and the X-H2 has more PDAF sensors
  • AF-C will be much better on the X-H2S for stills and video
  • The Fujifilm X-H2S electronic shutter can shoot at 40fps without a crop, while the X-H2 can only go up to 20fps cropped 29%
  • The max shutter speed on the X-H2S is 1/32,000th a second, and the X-H2 can go up to 180,000th a second
  • Multishot high-resolution mode is only available on the X-H2 to create a 160MP sensor in post-processing
  • The Fujifilm X-H2S has less rolling shutter than the X-H2, thanks to the stacked sensor
  • Both cameras can record prores internal, and they both have F-Log2, which extends the dynamic range over F-Log
  • The Fujifilm X-H2S has an extra stop of dynamic range when recording video than the X-H2
  • Fujifilm X-H2S will capture 6.2k using the entire sensor, which is helpful when shooting with anamorphic lenses
  • Fujifilm X-H2 can capture an over-sampled 4k HQ image using the entire sensor to capture 8k video and then down samples to 4k for finer results
