Fujifilm has issued firmware updates to the GFX100 and GFX 50 models, with the 100MP camera gaining the most significant improvements.
The GFX100 will gain the ability to output a Raw video stream that can be encoded in Apple's ProRes RAW format by an Atomos Ninja V recorder. This provides a much wider degree of processing latitude than the gamma-encoded, compressed files the camera saves internally.
In addition, the firmware expands the camera's USB control protocol, giving more control over the camera's settings when shooting tethered, and allowing remote control of various camera features when mounted on a drone or gimbal.
Face and eye detection AF is said to be improved, as is the performance of phase detection AF in low light. New focus bracketing options have also been added.
Finally, the GFX100 gains the Classic Neg and Eterna Bleach Bypass Film Simulations introduced since its launch.
GFX 50S and 50R users also gain Classic Neg, along with the original Eterna Film Simulation mode in an update to their cameras. This update also adds the subtle skin-smoothing feature from the GFX 100.
Valhalla, N.Y., June 30, 2020 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation announced today the availability of its highly-anticipated firmware update for the GFX System. This firmware update provides significant additional capabilities to each GFX System digital camera for photography, as well as considerable new capabilities for video shooters, including 4K RAW video support for the FUJIFILM GFX100.
This new firmware update will soon allow the FUJIFILM GFX100 to output 4K RAW video up to 29.97p via HDMI, which can then be recorded to an Atomos Ninja V 5” HDR monitor recorder*1 and encoded into 12-bit Apple ProRes RAW for compatibility with a wide range of grading and editing software.
The successful collaboration between Fujifilm and Atomos will make the GFX100 and Ninja V combination to become one of the only Large Format camera systems of its kind to record 4K RAW footage. GFX100’s 100MP 4:3 ratio Large Format CMOS sensor is 44mm x 33mm in size (∅54.78mm) and can record 4K video at up to 29.97p in the following image resolutions:
Both resolutions will be able to be recorded at bit rates of 100Mbps, 200Mbps, or 400Mbps. Currently, only UHD 4K 16:9 output will support RAW output.
“The look of large format video has become very popular because the combination of longer focal lengths and the camera sensor’s physical size can create an incredibly pleasing image with shallow depth of field and incredible compression.” said Victor Ha, senior director of marketing and product management in FUJIFILM North America Corporation’s Electronic Imaging Division. “This gives cinematographers further control over their creative visions and - with the addition of a PL adapter for GFX - opens up the possibility of cinema lenses, like the FUJINON Premista large format cinema zoom lenses, being used with GFX100 in production. It’s pretty exciting!”
The GFX100 sensor is among a handful of cameras in the world that has an imaging surface of at least 44mm x 33mm (∅54.78mm). “Coupled with the Atomos Ninja V and its ability to encode Apple ProRes RAW, this system will give filmmakers a whole new way to create images,” Ha continued. “By harnessing the power of RAW, the resulting images will have amazing depth, detail, and dynamic range for post-production, which is ideal for HDR finishing or to give greater flexibility in Rec 709 SDR.”
Simultaneous recording of RAW via HDMI, while recording Film Simulation / F-Log / Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) internally to a memory card is also available as a result of this firmware update.
With GFX100’s image sensor, In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), and now, compatibility with Atomos Ninja V, this large format camera system is small and light enough to hand hold, place in tight corners, mount onto gimbals, or use on drones. Additionally, when coupled with compatible gimbals or drones, users can start / stop recording, specify exposure settings, and make focus adjustments via remote control.
*1 Features relating to Atomos Ninja V require download of an expected further firmware update which is expected to be issued by Atomos in July 2020.
Guilin FeiYu Electronic Technology Co. Ltd., Shenzhen Gudsen Technology Co., Ltd., SZ DJI Technology Co.,Ltd. and ZHIYUN (alphabetical order) have announced the intention of offering compatible products for the new GFX System firmware update.
The new GFX System firmware is compatible with the below camera models via the below links:
