Fujifilm X-H2S has ProRes internal, ProRes RAW, and BRAW external Recording – Newsshooter

Fujifilm today announced their new flagship X Series mirrorless digital camera, Fujifilm X-H2S. The APS-C hybrid camera has advanced features for both still photography and video. It is the most advanced X Series mirrorless camera yet. The X-H2S includes an all-new APS-C sensor that features Fujifilm’s 26.16MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HS sensor, which is a stacked, back-side illuminated imaging sensor with a signal reading speed up to four times faster than Fujifilm’s previous X-Trans CMOS.

X-Trans CMOS 5, combined with the new X-Processor 5, doubles the X-H2S’s processing power compared to X-Processor 4, greatly enhances overall image IQ at lower ISOs, and reduces noise at higher ISOs. Subject-detection AF maximizes the tracking speed and accuracy of moving subjects, made possible with the addition of an AI processor.

From the fit and finish of the buttons and materials used in the construction of X-H2S to map specific functions to the AF ON button, image-makers will find the experience of using X-H2S intuitive and familiar. Shutter durability has been optimized, withstanding 500,000 actuations during quality and performance testing.

Dual Memory Card Slots

The camera features dual memory card slots supporting one CFexpress Type B and one SD card. Users can draw out the full potential of X-H2S’s fast, continuous image-making and video performance with the high-speed data processing performance of CFexpress Type B memory cards.

When shooting internal 10-bit ProRes, the camera can only use CFexpress Type B cards.

Impressive Video Capabilities

One thing we see a lot more in hybrid cameras is an impressive boost in video features. The Fujifilm X-2HS is taking a massive jump with internal 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes 422 and ProRes HQ recording and not one but both ProRes Raw and Blackmagic RAW external recording via the full-size HDMI. Impressive indeed. For ProRes RAW, You will need to use the Atomos Ninja V or Ninja V+. To record BRAW, a Blackmagic Design Video Assist is required.
It also has F-Log and F-Log2, which Fujifilm states provide a dynamic range of up to 14+ stops.

Up to 90 minutes of footage can be internally recorded with a single battery at a wide range of resolutions and frame rates up to 6.2K/30P in Open Gate 3:2, 4K/120P, and Full HD/240P.

Internal Recording

X-H2S digital camera supports internal recording of 4:2:2, 10-bit Apple ProRes HQ/ ProRes 422/ ProRes LT, and ProRes 422 Proxy at resolutions of up to 6.2K/30P and 4:2:2, 10-bit h.265 videos in frame rates as fast as 4K/120P and FHD/ 240p. ProRes will require the use of a CFexpress Type B Card.

Decreased Rolling Shutter

The sensor’s readout speed of 1/180 seconds when recording helps minimize rolling shutter on moving subjects or when the camera itself is moving. A heat-dissipating design brings the 4K/60P continuous video recording time to approximately 240 minutes, while the optional FAN-001 cooling fan accessory assists with maintaining similar levels of performance in high-temperature conditions.
