Final week, we shared pattern photos from the brand new Fuji X-H2, however this week we return to the lab with the different Fujifilm flagship digicam, the high-performance X-H2S. Introduced earlier within the yr, the Fuji X-H2S is designed with pace and efficiency as two of its hallmark options. Not like any earlier Fujifilm digicam earlier than it, the X-H2S is the primary Fuji digicam to sport a stacked sensor. It is nonetheless utilizing an X-Trans type sensor, however just like cameras just like the Sony A1 or Nikon Z9, the Fujifilm X-H2S’s stacked sensor design permits it to learn off the sensor knowledge way more rapidly than a conventional CMOS picture sensor. The result’s super-fast burst capturing capabilities, little to no rolling shutter artifacts when utilizing the digital shutter and elevated AF pace and reponsiveness. The digicam is simply plain quick.
Base ISO 160 (NR5D)
From a picture high quality standpoint, the X-H2S is analogous in someways to earlier X Sequence cameras, such because the X-T4, X100V, X-Pro3 and extra, in that it maintains the identical 26.1-megapixel sensor decision — whereas the X-H2, then again, went the high-resolution route with a 40MP X-Trans sensor. After all, the Fuji X-H2S makes use of an all-new sensor and a newer-generaton X Processor 5 than these earlier cameras, so we’re taking a look at an all-new think about pipeline regardless of the identical megapixel depend. Nonetheless, the ISO vary of the X-H2S is similar as these earlier fashions, spanning ISO 160 as much as ISO 12,800 within the native sensitivities. The digicam’s ISO may also be expanded right down to ISO 80 and as much as ISO 51,200. Moreover, whereas the X-H2S additionally contains in-body picture stabilization, very similar to its X-H2 sibling, this high-speed mannequin doesn’t embrace any high-resolution Pixel-Shift Multi-Shot mode.
Base ISO 160 (NR5D) – 100% JPEG crop
We have already printed our in-depth hands-on evaluation of the X-H2S, so in the event you’re curious to see how the digicam performs within the discipline, we urge you to examine that out, as properly. Nevertheless, in the event you’re questioning what the picture high quality seems like throughout the digicam’s full ISO vary — and the way it compares in opposition to different cameras we have examined — our First Pictures sequence of lab pattern photos ought to care for that! As standard, we have now two full sequence of Nonetheless Life check photographs, each with RAW+JPEG pairs. In a single sequence, we shoot with the digicam’s default degree of in-camera noise discount processing (NR5D), after which one other with the bottom setting of in-camera NR processing (NR1). Within the case of the X-H2S, the digicam would not allow you to disable NR processing utterly, so we merely set the digicam to the bottom accessible setting.
