The X-H2 design principle is identical to its sibling, X-H2S. Which is a good thing. A slick modern design, great ergonomics and a weather seal body to challenge any elements. But they are different. The new X-H2 house a new 40MP sensor. This gives the photographer unrivaled image quality and the ability to crop when needed.
Both auto focus and electronic shutter’s speed have also been improved. I was at the beach on a hot afternoon, I didn’t realize until I saw in more details that I was shooting at a whopping 180,000 of a second in ES. This feature certainly helps when we are shooting with fast Fujifilm prime lenses. As for auto focus, its fast. Many would ask, how is it compare with X-H2S? X-H2s is certainly faster but X-H2 is not very far off.
Not forgetting this camera shoots 8K 30p ProRes HQ and and has a 7 stops IBIS! With all these features making it perfect for creating your next short films. The X-H2 is also able to at shoot 240p for that cinematic slow motion effect when needed.
And for those who loves to shoot products and your secret toy collection, the X-H2 now offers Pixel-Shift. Transforming the shot into a whopping 160 mega pixel file. Also perfect for any mega prints or billboards requirements.
As a commercial photographer I believed the new X-H2 finally satisfy the needs of many photographers. Setting new standard, the X-H2 has the highest pixel count for any APS-C camera in the market today, thus making this new camera, second to none.
Below are the lenses that will achieve maximum benefit from X-H2’s 40.2 megapixel sensor.

The final question to me is, to S or not to S? 26MP X-H2S or 40MP X-H2? If I were to pick, I think I would go for X-H2. The 40MP sensor is key for my decision, 8K video and 7 stops IBIS certainly helps.
