Fujifilm GFX 100 review in progress
The Fujifilm GFX 100 is the 100 Megapixel medium format camera the company had previously promised. It's a dual-grip mirrorless camera that uses the GF lens mount. The addition of on-sensor phase detection for faster focus and in-body image stabilization significantly expands the range of photography it can apply itself to.
This combination of high resolution, image stabilization and on-sensor phase detection looks to not only drive home its large-sensor advantage over full-frame, but also expand the types of photography to which medium format can be easily applied, making it potentially the most flexible bigger-than-full-frame camera ever.
- 102MP BSI-CMOS 44 x 33mm sensor
- On-sensor Phase Detection
- 5-axis image stabilization
- Continuous shooting at up to 5 fps
- 4K video with 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output
- 5.76M-dot removable OLED viewfinder
- 16 or 14-bit Raw capture
The Fujifilm GFX 100 will be available at the end of June with a recommended price of $10,000, including the viewfinder.
What's new and how it compares
The camera's 102 Megapixels are what attracts the attention, but the GFX 100 brings a lot more than that.
Body and handling
The GFX 100 uses a twin-grip design, and no dedicated dials which radically changes the way the camera handles. The duplication of control isn't always successful.
Operations and controls
The GFX 100 brings the well-polished interface from the Fujifilm X-T3 but adds an even greater degree of customization.
We've been shooting the GFX 100 in a range of circumstances, to see how adaptable it is.
These small, fast primes aren't cheap, but neither are the cameras you're meant to mount them to.
Shiftcam's Pro line lenses attach to smartphones via dedicated cases or a universal lens mount.
The pop-up design allows for image and video recording in both folded and unfolded state.
