Fujifilm X-H2S initial review

The Fujifilm X-H2S is the company's most capable video/stills hybrid yet: a 26MP X-mount mirrorless camera built around a Stacked CMOS sensor.

It can shoot stills at up to 40fps (15fps with mechanical shutter), and capture full-sensor 6.2K video or 4K at up to 120 frames per second. As you'd expect, its autofocus has received a major boost, with subject-recognition and improved tracking.

Whether your workspace is a permanent setup or a collection of portable devices, they must be able to perform the required tasks. While there’s no need to work in total darkness, subdued lighting is best for image editing.

Once you’ve established your requirements, turn to individual components, starting with the computer.
