RUMOR: Next Fujifilm GFX with 102 Megapixel (not Monochrome) and Much Smaller than Fujifilm GFX100

A few days ago we told you that the next Fujifilm GFX will be launched in early 2021.

Rarely I have received so many emails after a rumor, like it was with this one, which is a great sign, as it means the interest among the FR-community is huge for a GFX successor.

I also received a bunch of emails of FR-readers, telling me that this would be a monochrome GFX, which is absolutely not correct, hence here is an update to the rumor, that will set things right.

The next Fujifilm GFX will have the same sensor of the current Fujifilm GFX100, hence a 102 megapixel backside illuminated Bayer sensor with full phase detection coverage. Which still today is basically the state of the art when it comes to sensor technology.

Also, it will be much smaller than the current Fujifilm GFX100.

If you are a GFX lover, make sure to stay tuned on FujiRumors, and also to join our facebook group below. You’ll be the first to know more about the new GFX camera.

Fujifilm GFX100 ProRes RAW does Not Support White Balance Adjustment

Jordan from DPReview goes over the latest Final Cut Pro update, which improves ProRes RAW support, including important new features such as the ability to change your white balance and ISO after the fact!

Now in Final Cut Pro you have a drop down menu to set your ISO, you have a slider for your white balance and a slider for exposure compensation.

Currently this is only supported in Final Cut Pro, but other video editing software should follow.

But there is a problem!

Jordan points out in the video, that not all cameras get those two much needed features (ISO and white balance adjustment).

At the moment there seems to be full support only for Z Cam cameras and Panasonic cameras.

The Fujifilm GFX100 supports the ISO adjustment, but not the white balance adjustment, which is so important when shooting RAW video.

Other cameras are even worse. The Nikon Z series does not support either ISO nor white balance adjustment.

Jordan concludes:

I hope that, whoever is responsible, Atomos, Apple or the camera manufacturers, they can get to work and make all of these cameras fully compatible with these features

Dear Fujifilm, set up a zoom meeting with Apple and Atomos, and get this fixed soon, please!

Leaving Phase One for Fujifilm GFX100, Hasselblad X1D II vs Fujifilm GFX50R Budget Medium Format Comparison & More

I was once on my Dolomites, when I met a professional landscape photographer, who had a rented Phase One (I posted it on my Instagram here).

We had a brief talk before my hike continued, and I just told him that he should enjoy his Phase One, as this might be one of his last trips with it. A few months from now Fujifilm might drop something that will finally allow him to actually own a 100 megapixel camera.

Now, I don’t know how the story ended. Did he get the Fujifilm GFX100? Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if he did.

For sure, some did, as you can see from the video down below, where a photographer left Phase One for Fujifilm GFX100. And for good reasons: much lighter, much more compact, much cheaper, much faster, much more versatile, still that medium format look and more.

And if the GFX100 is still a bit too high in price, for about 1/3 of the price, you get 1/2 of the megapixel with the Fujifilm GFX50R.

Fujifilm is slowly but surely building up an impressive and absolutely future proof system. A system, that, I am sure, will gain lots of followers in the years to come.

The Impossible Specs Comparison: Canon EOS R5 vs Canon EOS R6 vs Fujifilm X-T4 vs Fujifilm GFX100 vs Sony A7rIV vs GFX50S

Well, it’s hard to compare Fujifilm flagship cameras to anything else, for the simple reason, that Fujifilm decided to stay out of the full frame war, and focus on the advantages that other formats like APS-C and Medium Format offer.

So, inevitably, every comparison can be called “unfair”.

For example, B&H Explora said in their dedicated Canon EOS R5 comparison article, that:

there are plenty of real advantages to medium format, which is why we aren’t daring to make a comparison with the Fujiflm GFX100, but sticking with the Fujifilm GFX 50S here.

But has that ever stopped us from making unfair comparisons? I don’t think so.

So, while waiting for the first real life reviews to hit the web, and hence the first real life comparisons, down below you can find a nude and crude specs comparison between the Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm GFX100, Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.

If you want the megapixel master comparison, check out the following one: GFX100 vs GFX 50S vs Canon R5 vs Sony A7rIV

Fujifilm Spirit Level Patent for Fujifilm GFX100 and other Top LCD cameras such as Fujifilm X-H1 and X-H2?

As we reported already in the past, Fujifilm is very active when it comes to patents about new ergonomic solutions:

The one below is just another one of those :).

It clearly shows a Fujfiilm GFX100, hence it might eventually find its way into the Fujifilm GFX100 via firmware update and to other cameras with top LCD, such as the Fujifilm X-H1 and Fujifilm X-H2.

Here is the description of the patent by the Japanese site dclife (google translated):

The design for displaying the electronic level on the Fujifilm camera top sub-monitor has been registered with the Japan Patent Office. I don’t follow patent related information very much in life, but I was interested in it personally, so I would like to pick it up. FUJIFILM will apply for the design on May 22, 2019, and will be the design registration 1657892 issued on April 1, 2020.

Taking “GFX100” as an example, the top sub-monitor of “GFX100” supports INFO display, dial display, and histogram. Perhaps future products may support the electronic level display. I am also worried about the contents that can be supported by firmware update.

Personally, I use the sub-monitor on the top only for tripod shooting and night shooting, but I think it would be useful to increase the user’s usage by switching the display. Perhaps it may come in handy when shooting on a tripod or low angle.
