Fujifilm GFX100S Technical Analysis: 4 Small Sensors Stitched Together, Banding Fixed also on GFX100 and More

Jim Kasson continues his technical analysis of the Fujifilm GFX100S.

We already reported how he noticed that the Fujifilm GFX100S solved the PDAF banding issue.

He did check it on his original Fujifilm GFX100, and also there he says the banding has been fixed, as you can read here. FujiRumors already told you here that Fujifilm secretly fixed it via firmware update. Now Jim’s test finally confirms that.

Also, he confirms what we already told you back in 2017 here: the huge medium format GFX sensor is made of four small sensors stitched together. However, to be clear, this will not create any problem in your images.

UPDATE: as Jim explain more precisely at our wonderful GFX group here:

The GFX 100S sensor is not 4 small sensors stitched together. The lithography is stitched. It’s analogous to creating a pano by stitching. The result is on one piece of paper. In the GFX case it’s one piece of silicon.

Here is his most updated coverage:

On April 26 I was finally allowed to leave my little village, so I could finally hit my local photography store in the province nearby.

I entered the store, and in a total frenzy grabbed the first free seller and nervously asked him to give me that bloody XF27mmF2.8 R WR right now!

I guess this was some sort of withdrawal symptom, as I sold my XF27mmF2.8 MKI a few days ago, which I was totally addicted to. So the replacement could not come fast enough!

Now I finally have it, and here it is! Obviously glued on my Fujifilm X-E3. The dream combo is back, and it already served me well on my daily walks around my little village with my son.

But the lovely Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 R WR is just one of the photo gear Fujifilm recently released just the day before my son was born.

Sure, there was the massive Fujifilm GFX100S and the bokeh monster GF80mmF1.7.

But the releases on the X series front were not less interesting.

There was the Fujifilm X-E4. Then there is the incredibly poratable Fujinon XF70-300mmF4-5.6, which, with about the size of the XF55-200mm, is the perfect lens to get a long reach in a compact package and absolutely fair price for the X system. And yes, last but not least the XF27mmF2.8 R WR.

So today we would like to focus on the roundup on the latest and greatest X series gear. Lots to watch and read down below.
