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
- 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 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.
