Fujifilm has announced its new flagship camera, the X-H2S, that is expected to begin shipping in early July with an announced price of $2,499.
A quick look at the camera's specs shows it's been designed from the ground up with a host of new features. Chief among these are:
- Stacked BSI 26.1 mpx sensor (the stacked design reduces rolling shutter and motion distortion for improved video performance while the BSI design reduces noise for better low light performance)
- 64-bit processing with X-Processor 5
- 4K 120p and 6.2 30p video with recording times up to 90 minutes
- Improved autofocus and image stabilization
- In-body image stabilization
Fujifilm has always made excellent cameras and I'm sure the new X-H2S will prove no exception once the reviews are in, but at the end of the day it still has an APS-C (i.e., cropped frame) sensor. Personally f I were going to pay $2,500 for a camera I would want a full-frame model for the money. I think the new camera will sell primarily to those who've already invested in a Fujifilm system and are searching for a serious upgrade.
