Fujifilm unveiled its smart instant camera, the Instax Square SQ20, as well as two medium format mirrorless cameras, the GFX 50R and GFX 100 during the Photokina 2018 which was held in Cologne, Germany. The GFX 50R is a successor to the last year’s GFX 50S. Notable features of the camera include a 51.4-megapixel sensor and 100-12,800 ISO range. On the other hand, the futuristic GFX 100 is a 100-megapixel medium format mirrorless camera.
Unparalleled Image Sensor For Next Level Photography
With the GFX 100, Fujifilm has pioneered a medium format and mirrorless shooter with a 100MP sensor. At this stage, it is a concept camera on which the new flagship model will be based. Fujifilm has embedded phase detection pixels across the sensor, resulting in a shutter unit with high precision and mega power. The end result is an all-time best autofocus which can even track moving objects, something which is almost impossible with the conventional system of contrast autofocus.
Unlike the GFX 50R that can only record HD, the GFX 100 is touted as being the world’s first medium format mirrorless digital camera that can shoot 4K videos. The 100MP image sensor along with the X-Processor 4 high-speed image processing engine will make it possible to shoot 4K videos on the medium format mirrorless digital camera. Apart from that, the camera will also have in-body image stabilization for high-quality pictures, making it the first medium format digital shooter to have this mechanism. This will widen the scope of getting ultra-high resolution hand-held pictures.
Unrivaled Innovation With A Matching Price Tag
Details are still sparse about the GFX 100, which is understandable as the camera is still being developed. However, Fujifilm plans to release it next year and it will cost around Rs. 738,300. Given the high price tag, it is obvious that this camera is being targetted at professional photographers, not at the masses. The main competitors of the Fujifilm GFX 100S would be the Hasselblad H6D-400c MS and the Phase One XF IQ4 150MP.
