The Fujifilm X-H2 and Canon EOS R5 are both top-ranked mirrorless cameras in their respective classes, with the X-H2 being an Advanced Mirrorless class camera and the R5 being a Pro Mirrorless class camera. Let’s compare.
While the R5 was launched two years earlier in July 2020, the X-H2 was introduced to the market in September 2022. Despite their age difference, both cameras have similar features and specifications. The X-H2 has a 40.2MP APS-C sized BSI-CMOS sensor and the R5 has a 45.0MP full-frame CMOS sensor. The R5’s sensor has 4.8MP more than the X-H2’s sensor, allowing for larger prints or more freedom to crop images. Additionally, the R5 has a larger sensor area which provides more control over depth of field and background blur. However, the X-H2’s sensor lacks an anti-aliasing filter which increases sharpness and detail but also increases the chance of moire.
In terms of lens availability, the X-H2 has an advantage with 82 lenses for its Fujifilm X mount compared to 35 lenses for the R5’s Canon RF lens mount. This means that X-H2 users will have a wider range of lenses to choose from, including some exclusive lenses that are only available for the Fujifilm X mount.
Both cameras also have built-in sensor-based image stabilization with the X-H2’s system rated up to 7.0-stops and the R5’s system rated up to 8.0-stops. This means that the R5’s image stabilization system is slightly more effective, which can be especially useful when shooting in low light or with long focal lengths.
When it comes to video capabilities, both cameras can shoot 8K resolution video, with the R5 having the ability to shoot at 8192 x 4320 resolution and the X-H2 at 7680 x 4320 resolution. The R5 also has a higher frame rate for high-speed video at 4K 120fps compared to the X-H2’s HD 240fps. This means that the R5 is better suited for fast-action or slow-motion video recording.
Both cameras also have a built-in wireless feature, which allows for easy sharing and remote control of the camera via a smartphone or tablet.
In summary, both the Fujifilm X-H2 and Canon EOS R5 are highly capable cameras with similar features and specifications, but with slight differences that may make one more suitable for certain types of photography or personal preference. The X-H2’s sensor lacks an anti-aliasing filter and has slightly less resolution than the R5, but has more lens options and a slightly better image stabilization system. The R5 has a larger sensor and more resolution, better video capabilities, and better image stabilization system but fewer lens options.
