There has never been a camera that combines such stunning image quality, resolution, dynamic range, autofocus performance, overall handling, and ergonomics like the new Fujifilm GFX 100 does.

Previous medium format digital camera systems have been able to deliver very high-resolution images for a good 10 years now, but have sorely been lacking in handling and speed, particularly when it comes to autofocus performance, and especially with the limitation of only one central autofocus point.

The GFX 100 on the other hand, with its 425 auto focus points tightly spread all across the sensor, delivers blazing fast focus without ever having to re-compose.

With its swivel adapter, the high-resolution EVF can be shifted into various positions, which makes hand-holding over extended time much easier, and the 3-way tilt function of the LCD is a great help for comfortable composing whether the camera is low on the ground or high up overhead.

In early 2017, Fujifilm released the GFX 100’s predecessor, the GFX 50S, that already offered many of these unique features, and I have worked with it exclusively for the past 29 months.

Fujifilm GFX100 Hands On Reviews

Matt Granger went hands on with the Fujifilm GFX100.

He starts by saying that he does not get any attention by Fujifilm, and was not invited to Japan for the launch. So he needed to wait for the Fujifilm GFX100 to be displayed at a photography fair, and all he could do is to talk to Fuji reps there and go only shortly hands on with the camera. So what he can share for now is only a quick first look.

Other major youtube channels also complaint about Fujifilm not flying them to exclusive events around the world (which is what Sony does all the time). If this is good or bad, I leave the judgement to you.

Fujifilm X-H1: an Unloved Child, FujiRumors’ New Temptation… and WOW!

I tell you this:

If I wasn’t the rangefinder lover that I am, and I’d had to buy a DSLR styled mirrorless Fujifilm camera today, I’d not pick the Fuji X-T3, not even the Fujifilm X-T30!

Nope, I’d go all in with the Fujifilm X-H1.

And in fact, for two reasons I might explain in a future article, in these days I played with the thought, to get a Fujifilm X-H1.

And honestly, at THAT Price to me it’s such a steal!

I know there is the X-T3 out there, but the X-H1 autofocus is actually pretty fast, certainly more than fast enough for my needs. The image quality is just as lovely as on my Fujifilm X-E3. The build quality just screams “made in Japan” from every angle of the camera. It has IBIS. And some of my longer lenses would certainly balance better on the X-H1 than on my X-E3 or even X-T1.

So I am officially tempted, especially considering that the Fujifilm X-H2 is still far away.

Because in these days something happened, but I want to come down a bit before and see how all this ends, or it would end up in a rant. And today it’s weekend. My nephew is coming soon to my home. And I want to come down and be in good mood :).

So let’s stop it here and go back to the Fujifilm X-H1.

Let’s give some love to a camera, that would definitely deserve much more success than it has, thanks to a dedicated X-H1 roundup.

DPReview: Fujifilm GFX100 Added to Studio Scene Test vs GFX50S, Sony a7rIII, Nikon Z7, Panasonic S1R

DPReview added the Fujifilm GFX100 to their studio scene comparison tool.

Compared to the Fujifilm GFX50S, the Fujifilm GFX100 shows noticably less moire, and it is also sharper than pretty much any other camera on the DPReview database. Regarding color noise at high ISO, the Fujifilm GFX100 is also superior to the GFX50S and any other full frame camera for that matter.

If you are into medium format GFX, then the GFX100 looks like a sensible step up in image quality.

You can download the RAW studio lab shots of DPR, and open them Adobe Lightroom and since today also at Capture One Pro 12.

And now, happy pixel peeping to all of you :)

Fujifilm GFX100: Most Compelling Reason to Step Up from Full Frame

Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 is getting tons of positive feedback so far, and it seems that reviewers can’t really believe they are holding a medium format sensor camera in their hands, since everything with a digital sensor bigger than 35mm was notoriously slow.

The Fujifilm GFX100 changed the game: it is fast and responsive, despite having a 70% larger sensor than full frame and 100 megapixel. And thanks to IBIS, it is also versatile.

I am sure: Fujifilm has winner here!

Also Cameralabs went hands on with the Fujifilm GFX100. Down below are his findings and his video above:
