Fujifilm had already announced an X-Summit for May 31st in January, where a new X camera is to be presented. The successor to the X-H1 has been expected for quite some time, and according to the rumor mill, we can now expect exactly this camera. However, there will allegedly not only be one, but two X-H2 models, which differ in the resolution of the built-in sensor, among other things. Accordingly, there will be a variant X-H2s, which is equipped with a new stacked sensor with 26MP, as well as a second camera X-H2 with 40MP.
According to Fujirumors, only the X-H2s - which is probably more interesting for videographers - will be presented at first. Furthermore, some other alleged specifications are circulating, according to which the camera is supposed to film in 8K, and this without active cooling. Besides the new sensor, the image processor is also said to be updated. The display is said to be fold-out (on the X-H1, it can only be tilted). And last but not least, we read that the camera will be cheaper than the Panasonic GH6.
On the other hand, we don&t currently hear anything about AI-supported features, which (not only) according to Fujifilm should make their way into photography in perspective in the form of so-called "computational photography". Of course, this doesn&t have to mean that the X-H2s won&t feature anything of the sort - after all, Fujifilm is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its X-mount this year, which raises hopes for something special. At the time, we had considered that due to the slightly smaller APS-C sensor, it might make sense to have some computational tricks on board the camera to make it more attractive compared to its full-frame competitors. So we&ll probably finally find out in a few weeks whether Fujifilm thinks the same way.
