Fujifilm X-H2S initial review: A hybrid speedster

The Fujifilm X-H2s boasts some serious video specs, along with lightning-fast burst shooting. We took it out for the day to see how it performs. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Fuji has done away with its usual retro shutter speed and ISO dials, instead opting for a mode switch, with lots of custom presets, and a video record button. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We found the top LCD very handy and it looks great with its inverted colours. You can quickly check remaining battery and storage even when the camera is off. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The grip is among the best and feels secure and comfortable in the hand. All the important dials and buttons are within easy reach, too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The X-H2S uses CFexpress cards to handle the weighty new ProRes codecs, but for less intensive shooting you can also use an SD card. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The EVF and flip-out LCD both performed great throughout our testing and we never struggled to see what we were shooting. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The X-H2S features a full-size HDMI port along with headphone and microphone sockets. The best part is that they don't get in the way of the flip-out screen. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Our photos came out looking sharp and lifelike with Fuji's signature colour excellence. The high-speed burst shooting was addictive and we took a lot of photos. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Video performance is similarly impressive and we especially love the results from the 4K 120FPS clips. 240fps 1080 shots were less impressive, though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
For hybrid shooters dealing with sports and prioritising speed, the X-H2S is a compelling option. However, competition is stiff from the full-frame crowd. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
