Fujifilm X-H2 Camera & XF 16-80mm Lens
The Fujifilm X-H2 mirrorless camera body is Fujifilm's flagship model boasting the highest resolution in the X-Series cameras in both stills and video, delivering high resolution still images as well as becoming the world’s first APS-C camera to enable 8K/30P Apple ProRes internal recording.
Advanced features include minimum standard ISO125, maximum shutter speed of 1/180000 sec with electronic shutter, and the Pixel Shift Multi Shot to enhance visual expressions. The X-H2 also offers functions and interfaces that assist shooting, such as the subject-detection AF based on Deep Learning technology that automatically detects and tracks a broader range of subjects like animals and birds, five-axis and up to seven stops of in-body image stabilization, 0.8x magnification and 5.76 million dot EVF as well as a card slot compatible with CFexpress Type B card. The body design is the same as the X-H2S, with 79 weather sealed points and 1.62 million-dot vari-angle LCD monitor.
X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor and high-speed X-Processor 5
The X-H2 is equipped with the all-new back-illuminated 40.2MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor. The high-resolution 40.2MP sensor has an improved image-processing algorithm to enhance image resolution without compromising the S/N level, producing an astonishing image quality. It also has an improved pixel structure to efficiently bring in a greater amount of light, enabling ISO125 as a standard sensitivity rather than an extended option. This is particularly beneficial during day-time outdoor shooting or to take advantage of the large aperture to produce bokeh.
Fast shutter speed
The use of the new sensor and resulting ability to control exposure time at a greater precision have improved the fastest shutter speed for the electronic shutter by 2.5 stops from the previous 1/32000 sec to 1/180000 sec. This allows users to leave the aperture wide open in glary conditions such as a sunny beach or a ski slope, or to capture a split-second motion.
Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function
This is the first X Series camera featuring the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function. The camera uses the IBIS mechanism to shift the image sensor at high precision to carry out automatic shooting, recording 20 frames in a single shutter. The dedicated software “Pixel Shift Combiner” processes the captured frames to generate an image containing about 160 million pixels, which is perfect for commercial photography and digital archiving.
HEIF image format
The X-H2 supports the HEIF image format, which delivers 10-bit image quality in files up to 30% smaller than standard JPEG files, continuing to expand Fujifilm’s reputation of delivering high-quality images straight out of camera.
Rugged, weather-sealed design
The body design is the same as that of the X-H2S, with 79 weather-sealed points offering high levels of dust and moisture resistance, X-H2 is built to withstand the rigors of daily professional use and operate as normal in temperatures as low as -10°C. The top panel LCD screen, adjustable AF ON button press, 1.62 million-dot vari-angle LCD monitor, and independent movie recording button support comfortable operability.
8K video performance that caters to professional video production
With the incorporation of the X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor, 8K movies can be recorded internally at 30P in 4:2:2 10-bit colour. The X-H2 has a heat-dissipating design same as the X-H2S to enable recording 8K/30P video for approximately 160 minutes*6, making 8K video a practical option. Furthermore, it supports 8K over-sampling to produce high-quality 4K video, making maximum use of the high-resolution sensor to record video in superior image resolution.
X-H2 supports three Apple ProRes codecs; ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, and ProRes 422 LT. When recording ProRes, X-H2 also supports proxy recording such as ProRes 422 Proxy. This reduces 8K video’s editing workload and streamlines the overall workflow from filming to post-production.
X-H2 features a digital zoom function that uses the camera's 40.2MP sensor to deliver up to 2x of digital zoom with little to no loss in resolution, when recording video in 4K, even with a prime lens attached to the camera. Use with XF18-120mmF4 LM PZ WR to get twice the reach and seamlessly transition to the digital zoom function when the lens reaches its maximum focal length.
Apple ProRes RAW or Blackmagic RAW
Combined with a compatible HDMI recording device from Atomos or Blackmagic Design, 12-bit RAW video output from X-H2 can be recorded as Apple ProRes RAW or Blackmagic RAW at resolutions and frame rates of up to 8K and 29.97 frames per second. In addition to F-Log, X-H2 also supports F-Log, which records an expanded dynamic range of 13+ stops. This range is wider than current F-Log, broadening post-production potential.
Evolved AF performance
X-Processor 5 features subject-detection AF based on Deep Learning technology that automatically detects and tracks a broader range of subjects, including animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes and trains – as well as human faces and eyes, so image-makers can concentrate on composition and creativity, confident that X-H2 will track focus accurately. Recording 8K video requires focusing of advanced accuracy. The video AF algorithm has been optimized to improve autofocus accuracy.
The high-resolution sensor has a greater number of phase detection pixels than current models, resulting in an improved ability to attain AF-S focus on a subject with high-frequency subject. Users can easily autofocus accurately in situations where AF-S is typically used, such as landscape and portrait photography. And the X-H2 also incorporates an improved AF prediction algorithm, which was newly developed for the X-H2S, enabling stable focusing even when using AF-C. Focus meter
The X-H2 is equipped with a focus meter as a MF assist during movie recording, allowing for more precise focus adjustment. It can also be used in combination with focus peaking.
5-axis in-body image stabilisation
A 5-axis in-body image stabilisation system, made possible by X-Processor 5 and a sensing control function, provides up to seven stops of compensation. This powerful feature gives users the freedom to handhold in conditions that previously would have required support, such as low light. In addition, the in-body image stabilization function enables the image sensor to be shifted with high precision, making it possible to incorporate pixel-shift multi-shot capability for X-H2.
The X-H2 is equipped with a high-magnification and high-definition 5.76-million-dot EVF with 0.8x magnification. It boasts smooth refresh frame rate of approx. 120fps and significant improvement in controlling parallax and distortion which typically occurs when an eye position becomes displaced while using the viewfinder for stellar visibility.

We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.
We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.
The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.
We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.
