With Fujifilm insisting that the X-T4 doesn't mean the end of the line for its X-H range, what video powers could we expect from a Fujifilm X-H2?

Predicted specs: 40MP back-illuminated X-Trans CMOS 'stacked' sensor | 5.76-million dot EVF | In-body image stabilization (IBIS) | 8K video 

In 2020, Fujifilm focused on its mirrorless APS-C models such as the Fujifilm X-T4 and the Fujifilm X-S10, while in 2021, the big news from the company is its (relatively) affordable medium format model, the GFX 50S II. That leaves a pretty big gap where the X-H1 used to be, so it could be that the X-H2 is just around the corner. Maybe. 

Although the X-H2 isn’t necessarily expected to arrive by the end of 2021, reliable sources suggest it will be “well worth the wait”. The pretty reliable Fuji Rumors has suggested that it will indeed be 2022 by the time the camera sees the light of day - with the global chip shortage causing delays across the board, it’s hardly surprising. 

In terms of specs, as the X-H2 sits at the top of Fujifilm’s APS-C line, we’d expect the best tech possible. That could mean a new ‘stacked’ sensor using an X-Trans design, with perhaps even a 40 megapixel resolution. 

We’d also expect to see features such as IBIS (in-body image stabilization), a high-resolution EVF, 8K video recording and a new battery. 

Of course, we don’t know what the camera’s price will be for certain, but the Fujifilm X-H1 arrived for $1,899 / £1,699 / AU$2,700 (body only) back in 2018; so we’d assume that a similar pricing structure will be followed. That said, FujiRumors is reasonably confident of a “sub $2,500” price which could make it a touch more expensive.
