Fujifilm X-H2S with the new XF150-600 F5.6-F8

I am fortunate enough to give a test run of Fujifilm X-H2S with the new XF150-600mm F5.6-8 by Fujifilm Malaysia this early March during the Closed-Door friendly match where Sabah FC against PDRM FC.

As a Hybrid Shooter, I am always looking for one camera that can give me the option to use for all kinds of Photoshoots alongside Videography work.

Here’s a quick thought of me about the capabilities of Fujifilm X-H2S did something *chef kiss* good for me during the quick 90mins.

Slow Aperture and High ISO still produce a perfect image with only half of the stadium’s lights on.

The High ISO (6400-12800) on F5.6-F8 is acceptable for web usage. But of course with the 200mm F2 due to the low aperture. The image of course is way better on a lower number of ISO.

Quick Continuous Tracking on a fast singular movement.

AF-C + Tracking Abilities
Yes, we don’t get the bokeh due to the slow aperture. With the quick focus tracking continuous movement of the players running around the field. At F5.6 on 150mm or even all the way to the Goalkeeper side at F8 on 600mm. The focus is *chef kiss* hit the perfect spot at the perfect timing.

All the way to the end on 600mm at F8.

I did use the XF200mm F2 in some scenes during the 1st half with the X-H2S (in the picture). The image is indeed nicer on a lower ISO.

Captured with 200mm F2 on lower ISO.

Sensor and JPEG
I did shoot most of the moment below half-stop exposure and increased the overall image brightness on editing software. After export to the standard size of 2200pixels for web usage. The photos are still very clear and sharp.


Overall, for a demo of Fujifilm X-H2S firmware before the final announcement a few hours ago. Would love to know what is the latest firmware improvement.

This is just a quick test shot during the closed friendly match. Imagine the possibilities when I got the chance to use it for other photoshoots and even a quick video shoot with Fuji recipes available on the camera.

Lastly, as a fan of the X-H1 hybrid design. I love Fujifilm didn’t change much on the overall design. All the essential buttons move to the side of the display.
