The long-awaited successor to Fuji’s GFX 50 cameras has been officially launched. Like it names suggests, the GFX 100 features a 100MP sensor. This back-side illuminated medium format sensor is exactly four times bigger than the APS-C sensor found in Fuji’s X line of cameras, and it is 1.7 times bigger than a full-frame sensor. An IBIS system (effective up to 5.5 stops) is another welcome addition.
Unlike Fujifilm’s previous medium format cameras that had only contrast detection autofocus, the GFX 100 features on-sensor phase-detection AF. This means that the autofocus is noticeably faster and more accurate. This is in part possible thanks to quad-core X-Processor 4. The camera has dual memory card slots that are UHS-II compatible.
Fujiu GFX 100 also comes with a beautiful detachable OLED EVF with a resolution of 5.76 million dots. The touchscreen is not fully-articulating but works in a similar fashion to the one on the X-T3. The GFX 100 features a magnesium alloy shell and is dust and moisture resistant.
Last, but not least – this camera is capable of recording 4K video at up to 30 fps (and up to 4:2:2 10-bit externally via HDMI), which is quite an achievement for a medium format camera.
Fujifilm GFX 100 will be available at the end of June with a retail price of $9,999.95, You can preorder it on Amazon now.
