Fujifilm GFX 100 review
The Fujifilm GFX 100 is the 100 Megapixel medium format camera that the company has been promising since Photokina 2018. 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. In many respects we found it is, but this still leaves it as a very specialist camera.
- 102MP BSI-CMOS 44 x 33mm sensor
- On-sensor Phase Detection

The Fujifilm GFX 100 was launched with a recommended price of $10,000, including the electronic 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.
The GFX's large modern sensor and 100MP resolution offer impressive results, but there's a DR price to pay for its improved focus.
The GFX 100 is no sports camera, but its AF system is pretty snappy if compared to other medium format cameras
We wouldn't suggest buying the GFX 100 for video, but if you need to shoot 4K alongside stills work, it's a remarkably capable machine.
The GFX 100 offers superb image quality and the supporting tools to widen the range of circumstances in which you see its full potential. It's still pretty niche, though.
We've been shooting the GFX 100 in a range of circumstances, to see how adaptable it is.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III is a 20MP Micro Four Thirds camera aimed at enthusiast photographers. It shares the same sensor, AF system and 4K-video capture as the flagship E-M1 II and E-M1 X, in a considerably smaller and lighter package.
We spent 48 hours exploring the deserts of southern Utah with the E-M5 III, Olympus smallest, lightest 20MP camera. Click through to read about our experience shooting with the camera and to see what kind of photos it's capable of taking.
We recently joined Olympus in Moab, Utah for some preliminary shooting with the OM-D E-M5 III. See how the photos look in our extensive sample gallery.
Olympus has announced the OM-D E-M5 Mark III - a more compact camera than its predecessor, which incorporates a lot of technology found previously in the higher-end E-M1 Mark II.
The PEN E-PL10 remains largely unchanged from its predecessor aside from the redesigned display and a few software additions.
Camrote version 1.2.0 adds new zoom and time-lapse capabilities to select Sony camera systems.
