Fujifilm GFX Roundup: Compared to Hasselblad X1D II, GFX100 Review and GF lenses Reviews

Fujifilm GFX XG vs Panasonic S1R
Fujifilm GFX XG vs Panasonic S1R

I have said it and I confirm it: the Fujifilm GFX system is future proof.

The lens selection is growing, the cameras are getting more affordable, and wait for the global shutter, which the GFX system will benefit more than other systems from, as we have elaborated here.

As of today, if I should grab one, I’d go for the Fujifilm GFX50R without a doubt. But I have the impression, to really make the big breakthrough, Fujifilm needs to give us that Fujifilm GFX G.

Don’t get me wrong, the Fujifilm GFX100 (which enjoys a stratospheric success), is a technical marvel for sure. But it is also a clear ergonomic departure from everything else we know from Fujifilm.

So, my recommendation: stick with that awesome retro feel. Give us a 100 megapixel retro camera, and I am sure it will outsell even the very well selling GFX100.

With that said, here is a GFX roundup, which covers cameras and lenses.

Fuji Guys Introduce X-A7/X-T200 Webcam Feature and FujiRumors Explains the Difference with Fujifilm X Webcam Software

While probably many of you were sleeping, Fujifilm made two things happen:

Now the Fuji Guys have released a follow up video to the new X-T200 and X-A7 webcam feature, that you can see down below.

Here is what they say about the new X-A7/X-T200 webcam feature (not to mistake with Fujifilm X webcam software).

  • supports a universal USB video format, meaning it’s a true plug-and-play
  • change only one setting in camera to make it work (Connection Settings USB mode USB webcam)
  • connect camera and it automatically gets detected by your computer
  • works for Windows or Mac
  • you can’t use film simulation or other video parameters
  • no control over autofocus, it is automatically set to continuous with face and eye detection enabled
  • works also with OBS
  • no power provided to camera while connected to computer
  • fully charged battery gives you 2 hours of usage
  • best use a battery coupler
  • AF assist lamp on the front of the camera will turn on when battery power is low
  • no audio when camera is connected to computer. Best pick up a high quality microphone
  • max. 720p @ 30p

Down below you can read what is different by using Fujifilm X Webcam compared to the X-A7/X-T200 solution described above.

  • You must install the Fujifilm X webcam software in order to use your X/GFX camera as a webcam
  • more settings to change in camera: set drive dial to “S”, in connection settings set USB-AUTO, set Pre-AF ON for focus, recommended setting is Single AF
  • you can enable face/eye detection if you want (but also keep it disabled)
  • you can select film simulation
  • video quality: XGA (1024 x 768)
  • does not support OBS (but we reported about a workaround)

So, Fujifilm X Webcam gives you still more control, but given how reliable Fuji’s eye autofocus has become (and I talk from experience, as I used it a lot for my video-online lessons), I would feel totally confident to go full auto.

However, having a webcam that outputs ETERNA and higher qualiy video is great.

So, between the two, I’d still go with Fujifilm X webcam, and make the few extra setting changes in camera.

But hey, let me know what you guys prefer by voting the survey down below:
