Difference in video specs

The X-H2's headline feature is that it's the first 8K-capable APS-C camera we've seen, but our initial impression is that it's the X-H2S that will be the more useful video camera for a lot of people.

Both cameras offer the same impressive range of codecs and bitrates in which video can be saved, with both cameras also offering Raw video output of their highest resolution footage. But it's the X-H2S that then backs it up with the very fast sensor readout that both allows it to deliver 4K footage at up to 120p (60p without a crop), and with very low levels of rolling shutter.

The X-H2 beats it for resolution, and it delivers more scope for cropping and higher detail capture, even when downsized, but with noticeable rolling shutter as a trade-off. The X-H2S's 6.2K open-gate mode still provides some flexibility in terms of both cropping and detail capture, while the camera also offers significantly better slow-mo opportunities.
