We’re at Fujifilm’s X-Summit occasion in New York and might be reporting dwell with all of the bulletins.
Fujifilm begins by sharing feedback from photographers who’ve shot with the X-H2S over the previous few months and apologizing for the delay in shipments.
Digital camera and Sensor
Fujifilm is now speaking in regards to the X-Trans CMOS 5HR, the sensor contained in the X-H2 digicam.
The 40MP sensor has a decision of seven,728 x 5,152 pixels, greater than sufficient to seize UHD 8K video.
This is a comparability chart from Fujifilm exhibiting off the distinction between 1080, 4K and 8K UHD:
The X-H2 will be capable to seize 8K ProRes 422 HQ (422, 422 LT, too) video internally at as much as 30fps in 10-bit and 12-bit ProRes and Blackmagic RAW in 8K as much as 30fps utilizing exterior recorders, similar to these supplied by Atomos and Blackmagic Design.
The X-H2 can have, for the primary time ever with an X-Trans sensor, a sensor-shift high-resolution seize mode Fujifilm is looking Pixel Shift Multi Shot. It can mix 20 photos, utilizing an exterior program known as Pixel Shift Combiner, to create a 160MP picture.
The X-Trans CMOS 5HR can now use an digital shutter velocity as much as 1/180,000, 2.5x sooner than previous-generation sensors.
Fujifilm has introduced its new XF 56mm F1.2 WR R lens, a second-generation 56mm F1.2 lens that now has an improved optical method and weather-sealing.
This new lens makes use of 13 parts, together with two aspherical parts and one extra-low dispersion component. The main target unit parts have additionally been positioned to enhance focus velocity and efficiency. The brand new focusing unit is 120g thrice heavier than the previous-generation 56mm F1.2. This meant Fujifilm needed to create a stronger, extra sturdy actuation system to maintain AF quick and correct.
Our preliminary impressions of utilizing a pre-production pattern are that although the efficiency is non-final, it is already sooner than the older model, regardless of the heavier focus unit. The improved bokeh of the brand new model is prone to imply there will not should be an APD model to clean the sides of the bokeh.

Fujifilm has additionally introduced a brand new 20-35mm F4 lens for its GFX System. The ultra-wide zoom lens is the widest GF zoom up to now and can work with all GFX digicam techniques.
The lens is constructed of 14 parts in 10 teams, together with 4 aspherical parts and 4 extra-low dispersion parts. It makes use of Fujifilm’s Nano-GI coating, has a minimal focusing distance of 35cm and solely weighs 725g.
