In addition to the Fujifilm X-H2S mirrorless camera, XF 150-600mm f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR super telephoto zoom, and XF 18-120mm f/4 R LM PZ WR lenses, Fuji has also announced a new 40MP CMOS sensor, the X-Trans CMOS 5HR. Fujifilm says this new sensor ‘goes beyond the format boundaries to deliver ultra-high image quality.’ this new sensor will be inside Fujifilm’s forthcoming X-H2 camera, which we’ll probably meet at the next X-Summit event in September 2022.
The new stacked SMOS sensor is the X-Trans CMOS 5HS. It features a stacked layer structure and Fujifilm says it’s four-times faster than the previous BSI CMOS sensor. This new sensor helps deliver a higher EVF rate, high-speed burst shooting, ‘fast and reliable’ AF and high-framerate video capture.
Fujifilm also unveiled a new image processor, the X-Processor 5. Fujifilm says this new processor is 30x faster than its predecessor while using one half the power. It also supports ProRes 422 HQ, H.265 and HEIF capture modes for stills and video. The processor also supports CFexpress Type B memory cards.
The Fujifilm manager said during the X summit that the 5th generation Fujifilm cameras will begin with the X-H2S followed by the X-H2. These will be the first two cameras with the new platform. He also added more details about the X-H2 will follow during the X summit in September.
