8K in APS-C: Fujifilm Announces X-H2 as Potential EOS R5 Rival

The EOS R5 is no longer the only mirrorless camera that can shoot 8K video, as Fujifilm announced the X-H2 as the first APS-C camera that’s capable of shooting 8K video. While it looks similar to the X-H2s that was unveiled last June, the X-H2 uses a non-stacked, Backside Illuminated 40.2-megapixel CMOS X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor that’s paired with Fujifilm’s X-Processor 5.

While we mentioned that the X-H2 can shoot 8K30 Apple ProRes video, another unique feature of the X-H2 is its insane electronic shutter that has a maximum speed of 1/180,000 sec–something that’s unheard of in any mirrorless camera to date. There’s also a Pixel Shift Multi-shot feature that utilizes the camera’s IBIS mechanism to adjust the sensor for capturing 20 images with a single shutter–resulting in an ultra-high-resolution 160-megapixel image.

Because of its sensor, the X-H2 has a lower base ISO of 125 (which can go as low as ISO 64)–though its maximum ISO is just the same as the X-H2s. This also limits its burst shooting speed to 20FPS in electronic shutter mode (15FPS in mechanical shutter mode). When it comes to video, the X-H2 can also record 12-bit RAW video externally using a supported Blackmagic Design or Atomos device.

The X-H2 is priced at Php 123,990 for the body only and Php 153,990 with the XF 16-80 F4 OIS WR lens. When it comes to accessories, the X-H2 is compatible will all X-H2s accessories–including the external fan accessory.
