Fujifilm has officially announced the mirrorless model of the medium format sensor with a resolution of up to 102 million pixels. This model has gained a lot of attention because of the modern technologies it brings in the large sensor camera segment, followed by two previous versions: GFX 50 and GFX 50R.
After debuting at Fujikina 2019, the GFX100 has received the attention of lovers of large sensor cameras. Fujifilm representative said the order volume of this product exceeded its forecast by 3 times.
The power of GFX100 comes from medium format sensor of 43.8mm x 32.9mm size using BSI-CMOS technology, instead of using FSI-CMOS as on GFX version of 50 MP. Therefore, the image quality on the GFX100 promises to improve the noise reduction when shooting at high ISO. The image processing algorithm of the X-Processor 4 chip used for the first time on the Fujifilm X-T3, it sounds a bit lame when compared but certainly X-Processor 4 on the GFX100 will be much different. Compared to the X-T3 series due to the sensor size and higher resolution.
Not only that, the GFX100 is integrated inside a 5-axis mechanical anti-shake system that has an effective 5.5 stops. Such integration helps Fujifilm not need to create lenses with an anti-vibration mechanism in the prime lens, which can reduce size and optimize production costs, prioritizing lens quality.
The device's sensor also offers phase-to-phase focusing with almost 100% frame coverage with a total of 3.76 million pixel autofocus detection phases. The fastest focusing speed of the machine reaches 0.05 seconds, optimized on models GF63 / 45mm. Fujifilm also brings the features of the X-Series to GFX as a more sensitive face detection feature, face detection capability from only 7% of the area compared to 10% of the models. rest. The feature of eye recognition is also improved thanks to the powerful hardware.
With its own high resolution, Fujifilm has integrated Smooth Skin Effect into its shooting mode to help those who do not have much experience in post-production to capture good-looking portraits. With natural smooth skin, not too thorny.
Fujifilm also integrates the ability to shoot 4K resolution at 30fps as well as the option to output 10-bit signals via HDMI to users shooting video with a large image sensor. Because the footage created by the GFX100 will not be cropped, it will be able to exploit the depth of field provided by the lens, combined with the color profiles in the device, supporting F-log or HDR (HLG).
Fujifilm Vietnam also announced two new models for the GFX series including GF 50mm F3.5 R WR and GF 100-200mm F5.6 R LM OIS WR. In which 50mm F3.5 version has 35mm convertible focal length is 39.5 mm with the lowest expected price in the GF lens line, and its size is also suitable for GFX 50R.
Fujifilm GFX100 has a reference price of VND 255 million in Vietnam. Actual rates may be lower depending on incentives offered by agents.
Fujifilm GFX100 has dimensions (excluding EVF) of 156.2 mm x 144 mm x 75.1 mm, with EVF will be 156.2 mm x 163.6 x 102.9 mm.
Its sensor offers the largest image size of 11,648 x 8,736 pixels at 4: 3, RAW (RAF) format supports 16-bit.
Thanks to the mirrorless structure, the GFX100 has a slim body. Better optimized hardware should improve the thickness of the GFX 50S.
The device still uses two SD UHS-II card slots, not using more specialized memory cards such as XQD / CFexpress / CFast.
The EVF of the machine is removable, compatible with the GFX 50S version.
The connection of the device includes USB-C port 3.2 gen1, HDMI microphone. It also includes two 3.5mm ports for microphone and headphones.
Secondary monitor 1 of the large size machine, switch 3 display modes. Fujifilm minimizes the mechanical button system on the GFX100 compared to the X-series.
So the machine will look more open and tidy. Operational functions are provided with more convenient private buttons, such as movie recording and still image rotation.
GFX100 when removing the viewfinder looks very neat. The integrated vertical handle makes the machine big and long.
The GFX100 has two NP-T125 batteries that can capture 800 photos according to the manufacturer's announcement.
