According to a recent interview with Japanese top managers Mr. Takashi Ueno by Mapcamera, the upcoming Fujifilm X-H2 will be a different camera from the X-T series. The main differences between these two important lineups will be in design and operability and claims that the X-H series is not only characterized by IBIS.
You can see a summary of information form the interview below. So what to expect for Fujifilm X-H2. When it comes to the sensor that Fujifilm will use in future camera models such as X-H2 and X-T5, we can now predict a 32MP APS-c sensor. Take a look at the list of upcoming Sony Sensors that may get used inside Micro Four Thirds, APS-c and Full Frame DSLR and Mirrorless cameras.
Fuji X-H2 is coming and that it will be different from the T-series :
- Fujifilm wants to continue with the concept of the XH series, which is different from the T series
- the X-H series is not only characterized by IBIS
- the X-H series is made very tough, has a large grip to make it better usable with long lenses, has a thicker magnesium alloy chassis, it’s more robust
- All this makes the camera bigger and heavier, but that’s necessary to meet professional needs and maintain high specifications
- Fujifilm would like to make the XH series a camera with a clearly different concept from the X-T series
- The Fujifilm X-H line is intended for users who have different shooting purposes and shooting scenes
- The mere difference in design and operability does not make it possible for the X-H and X-T series to co-exist. Fujifilm is currently studying these issues
