What's the difference?

Fundamentally, both cameras are stills/video hybrids, with the X-H2 offering high resolution stills and video, and the X-H2S delivering high speed stills and video.

This relationship between the two cameras isn't the video model / stills model distinction that some people seemed to be expecting (despite the 'H', for hybrid in both cameras' names). The X-H2 shoots 40MP images and up to 8K video, while the X-H2S shoots up to 40fps and 4K video at up to 120p from a sensor with fast readout.

In both instances, the specs look strong even if you plan to shoot just stills or just video, but are likely to be most compelling for people that plan to do a bit of both.
