FUJIFILM Doubles Down on Medium Format with the GFX 100; More Info at B&H

Photography News: FUJIFILM Announces GFX 100 Medium Format Mirrorless
Camera

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Fujifilm?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Fujifilmlt;/agt;–B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the FUJIFILM
GFX 100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera
, a high-resolution
powerhouse well-equipped for professional studio and street use. The
latest flagship GFX effectively doubles the resolution of its
predecessor with a whopping 102MP 43.9mm x 32.9mm back-illuminated
imaging sensor. To maximize the benefits of the new sensor, the GFX 100
also includes improved autofocusing capabilities, image stabilization,
and an updated processing engine. Rounding out its functionality is the
ability to record in DCI and UHD 4K video up to 30 fps.

First priority for the Fujifilm
GFX 100
is image quality. The new sensor works in tandem with a
newly designed X Processor 4 to output 16-bit images for accurate
colors, impressive shadow detail, and wide dynamic range. Its
back-illuminated sensor reduces noise, while the absence of an optical
low-pass filter means sharper images, nearly no chance of moiré, and
accurate, natural colors. An ISO range of 50-102400 means the GFX 100 is
equipped for pretty much any shooting environment.

Speaking of less-than-ideal shooting conditions, working in low light
and/or handheld has always been a challenge with medium format cameras.
The GFX 100’s 5-axis image stabilization marks the first application of
this technology in a medium format camera. A dual processor, working in
tandem with gyroscopic accelerometers, keeps the sensor stable up to 5.5
stops—meaning sharp image capture even when using non-optically
stabilized FUJINON lenses. The GFX 100 is capable of shooting
continuously up to 5 fps, capturing 41 JPEGs or 14 compressed raw images
at a time.
