NOW IN STOCK: Fujifilm’s Flagship 100MP Medium Format Camera – The GFX100
20 September 2019 | Category: General News
The GFX, FUJIFILM's mirrorless medium format digital camera system, has achieved the highest level of image quality in the world of professional photography. The system continues its evolution...
The GFX100 uses a large format CMOS sensor with over 100 million pixels which makes it the highest class resolution mirrorless digital camera ever produced. The GFX100, is the coming together of FUJIFILM's unique blend of imaging and optical technologies and will herald the future of photography for the years to come.
• Weather resistant structure
• 100MP+ 55mm diagonal length medium format CMOS sensor
• X-Processor 4
• In body image stabilisation
• 4K/30P movie / 10bit colour depth
• Phase detection pixels across the entire sensor
Despite featuring a sensor which is 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full frame sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions (156.2mm (W) x 163.6mm (H) x 102.9mm (D), measuring 48.9mm at the thinnest part) and weight (approx. 1400g including two batteries, memory card and EVF).
The new back-illuminated sensor, specifically developed for this camera, measures approx. 55mm diagonally and boasts an effective pixel count of approx. 102 million. When combined with the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processor, it delivers the world’s highest level of image quality with exceptional colour reproduction unique to FUJIFILM and the ultra-sharp “FUJINON GF lenses.”
The GFX100 is the first mirrorless digital camera with a 55mm diagonal length large format sensor equipped with an in-body image stabilization (IBIS) mechanism. It provides precision control for the high definition images produced by the camera's large format sensor. This feature revolutionizes the large format camera system, unleashing its advanced performance with greater flexibility in a wider variety of shooting conditions.
The GFX100 inherits the GFX 50S’s popular detachable EVF system that can be adjusted to various angles when using the EVF Tilting Adapter EVF-TL1. The world’s highest class resolution 5.76 million dot OEL panel has been used to develop the GFX100’s high definition EVF unit. The viewfinder has a magnification of 0.86x and contains five optical glass elements including aspherical elements and has been specifically designed for the 102MP sensor, which requires extreme focusing accuracy.
The combination of the newly developed image sensor and the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processing engine means the camera also supports “16-bit RAW” mode, requested by many professional photographers. The GFX100 also supports 16-bit TIFF in-camera file conversion. The ultra-high 100MP+ resolution and rich colour and tonal reproduction found in Fujifilm’s FILM SIMULATION modes significantly boosts photo data’s post processing tolerance, meeting the diverse needs of today’s professional photographers.
The combination of the new image sensor with high speed readout and the high performance fourth generation “X-Processor 4” engine has given the camera the ability to record 4K30P video (10bit 4:2:2 externally and 10bit 4:2:0 internally), a world’s first amongst large-format consumer mirrorless digital cameras carrying a sensor bigger than the 35mm format.
Focusing / Continuous shooting
The GFX100 is the first model in the GFX System that uses Fujifilm’s phase detection AF algorithm, adopted from the fourth generation X Series cameras (X-T3 and X-T30). The algorithm makes full use of 3.76 million phase detection pixels, placed across the entire sensor, to set a new standard in AF speed and precision for large format cameras performing the standard “Single Point” AF as well as “Zone” and “Wide Tracking” AF. The effect is particularly noticeable when using prime lenses with a heavy set of focus lens elements, achieving speed improvements of up to 210% over the conventional contrast AF system.
The GFX100 can accommodate two NP-T125 batteries, extending the number of frames per charge to approx. 800 when the rear LCD is used. The camera can also be powered and charged through the USB-C connection. Connecting an external battery that supports USB power delivery enables even longer continuous shooting and simultaneous charging of the two batteries in the camera.
Accessories / Workflow
Similarly to previous GFX models, the GFX100 is compatible with “Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” and “Capture One Pro FUJIFILM” for RAW processing and tethered shooting to accommodate the workflow of any professional photographers.
