When Fujifilm announced the new X-H2, I was immediately interested to test it out against my current camera, the Canon R5. Featuring a 40-megapixel sensor, much improved autofocus, and other advancements, on paper, it hits all the marks for my type of work.
To be clear, I have found very little to complain about regarding the Canon R5. The image quality is superb, the autofocus is fast and accurate, and the ergonomics and build quality are top-notch. But, there are some drawbacks to the Canon system in my opinion, mainly relating to the limited number of lenses available in the RF mount as well as their high cost. Part of the reason why I wanted to test the Fuji X-H2 is because of the large amount of excellent native and third-party lenses available at a much lower price point than Canon glass. I was also hopeful that the X-H2 would show a marked improvement in the autofocus system over the X-T4. I reasoned that the higher resolution paired with excellent autofocus and Fujifilm's already stellar image quality and film simulations could make the X-H2 an appealing alternative to my current Canon setup.
I was able to test an X-H2 for about a week, and my goal was to see how it compared to shooting with the R5 in my studio. In the video, I discuss autofocus, image quality, ergonomics, handling, and overall value. Although I am usually not a "pixel peeper," I do zoom in quite closely on a few samples and compare the resolution. I hope that you find my video to be informative and entertaining.
