The “40MP, beyond the format limits” tagline of the brand-new 5HR sensor definitely seems to focus more on resolution than speed than the 26-megapixel 5HS sensor in the X-H2S, which utilized “stacked layer, ultra quick motion capture” as its tagline. It could, naturally, indicate that the speed standard has now already been set and the X-H2 will include resolution into that mix or it might suggest that resolution is the top priority over video functions when it comes to this specific body.

The Fuji X-H2 is the long-awaited follower to the Fuji X-H1. The original X-H1 was extremely greatly focused on video, instead of stills. The recently announced Fuji X-H2S is likewise very greatly video-centric, so it will be intriguing to see exactly what the X-H2 brings to the table. Is Fuji going to have 2 video-heavy video cameras or, as some rumours recommend, is the X-2H non-S going to be more stills-oriented?
