Fujifilm GFX100

Fujifilm has unveiled its flagship mirrorless camera, the Fujifilm GFX100. The company is calling the GFX100 “a game changer in digital camera technology and capability.” The Fujifilm GFX100 uses the company’s largest sensor—102MP BSI (Back-Side Illuminated) medium format CMOS sensor—yet in a mirrorless camera. This new sensor has a diagonal length of 55mm, which is similar to the company’s GFX50S and GFX50R cameras. In comparison, the medium format sensor has 1.7x the surface area of typical 35mm full-frame sensors.

The Fujifilm GFX100 is an extremely costly camera, with its price set at USD 10,000, and it will be available in important markets starting this week.

Fujifilm GFX100 Mirrorless Camera Features

The Fujifilm GFX100 is now the mirrorless camera with the highest resolution sensor, at 102MP, and has the X-Processor 4 Engine. It is also the first camera which has a larger-than-full-frame sensor, in-body stabilization mechanism, and phase-detection hybrid autofocus (with 3.76 million focus pixels). Speaking of stabilization, the Fujifilm GFX100 has 5-axis in-body stabilization with 5.5 stops.

It is the first mirrorless camera with a medium format sensor to offer 4K 30fps video recording and it can also record in F-Log Rec.2020 and 10:2:2 uncompressed footage. The newer PDAF system allows a user to focus almost anywhere in the frame and it is 210% faster than autofocus system used in the GFX50R and the GFX50S. The GFX100 has a native ISO of 100 and a maximum ISO of 12,800. The shutter is suspended by four springs which reduces shutter shock.

The Fujifilm GFX100 has a dust-resistant and weather-resistant body, thanks to its 95-point weather sealing design. There’s also a vertical grip, a first in the GFX lineup. There’s a large information display at the top of the camera, to see information such as ISO, shutter speed, histogram, and other things. There are plenty of dedicated buttons and dials to make it easier to experiment and shoot images or videos.

On the back, there’s a 3.2-inch 3-side-tilting LCD touchscreen with 2.36 million pixels. The EVF (electronic viewfinder) sits on a hot shoe mounting point, so it can be removed if you want the camera to be more compact in certain situations. The company is also offering a swiveling and tilting EVF attachment which can be used in certain complex scenarios. There are dual-SDXC card slots, 3.5mm microphone and heapdhone jacks, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. There’s also a 2.5mm remote release connector.
