Live in detail with the world’s first 40-megapixel APS-C sensor

Perfect for the next generation of hybrid image makers, X-H2 blends the compact and lightweight
versatility of APS-C mirrorless cameras with an unmatched back-side illuminated X-Trans CMOS 5
HR imaging sensor. The result gives image-makers 40-megapixels of resolution that brings life to
the details of any image. Add in an optimized pixel layout that promises exceptional detail,
unrivaled color accuracy, and impressive video flexibility. Lightning-fast performance to help X-H2
deliver 8K/30p video, enhanced autofocus capabilities, and black-out free image bursts at 15fps.
Not to mention, it’s also more efficient than its predecessor, boosting battery performance by 10%.

Discover true creative flexibility with 8K video

X-H2 uses its native 8K video resolution to give filmmakers several ways of unlocking the camera’s
true potential. From being able to increase the focal length of any lens with the camera’s 2x digital
zoom, when recording up to 4K, to delivering incredible 4K video by down sampling from the
camera’s higher resolution, X-H2 offers a suite of video functions that make it perfect for every
moviemaking occasion.

Apple ProRes 10-bit 4:2:2 footage can be recorded internally at up to 8K/30p using a CFexpress
Type B card, while 12-bit Apple ProRes or Blackmagic RAW footage can be recorded to
compatible external devices* via the full-size HDMI Type A port on the side of the camera.
Additionally, when recording video using the F-Log2 color profile, X-H2’s dynamic range extends to
13+ stops – a one-stop improvement over the previous sensor, enhancing post-production
flexibility. X-H2 can also record continuously for up to 160 minutes at 25°C (77°F), and can be
extended to 240 minutes with the optional X-H2 clip-on fan.

An X Series first: Pixel Shift Multi-Shot
X-H2 is the first X Series to feature Pixel Shift Multi-Shot, which delivers 160-megapixel images for the
ultimate quality when detail really matters. A staple of GFX System cameras, Pixel Shift Multi-
Shot records 20 frames, shifting the sensor by 0.5 pixels between each frame. Resulting images are
automatically combined into one DNG RAW file, which can be output to a desired file format
using suitable RAW processing software. This groundbreaking feature is invaluable for archival
recording and other commercial applications where color fidelity and fine detail are paramount.
Using Pixel Shift Multi-Shot ensures false colors and moiré effects are suppressed to such an extent as to be virtually non-existent.

Power and control whenever needed
X-H2 has a feature set designed to support creatives in their pursuit of the ultimate stills or video.
Improved in-body image stabilization (IBIS), for example, offers seven stops of compensation and
features an enhanced algorithm that improves motion detection. This produces shake-free results
in more scenarios than ever before, most notably when panning or following subjects on foot for

For stills photographers, full-resolution images can be recorded at an incredible 15 frames-per-
second when using the mechanical shutter, while those switching to the electronic shutter can work

at 20fps in the 1.29x crop factor option. Further high-speed options are provided by the electronic
shutter’s 1/180,000 sec top speed, while photographers seeking optimum quality will welcome the
lower minimum ISO 125.

A complete workflow solution

Thanks to its broad range of wired and wireless options for transferring image and video data, X-
H2 is a true multimedia creative tool. The camera body supports wireless image transfer through

the Fujifilm Remote Camera App and natively delivers webcam resolutions of up to 4K/60p for a
high-quality live streaming experience. With the optional VFT-XH Wireless File Transmitter Battery
Grip, however, functionality is expanded even further. The grip adds tethering connections and
FTP file transfer through Wi-Fi, Ethernet and smartphone connections, plus the Remote Rec
function. This enables up to four camera bodies, with VFT-XH battery grips attached, to be
connected and controlled via a web browser on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
