DPRTV Fujifilm GFX100 Review: “The New Landscape King. If You Want the Extra Image Quality, GFX100 is the Way to Go”


Chris and Jordan from DPRTV published their Fujifilm GFX100 review.

Here are their findings:

  • the Fujifilm GFX100 is unique for medium format: relative compact body, rugged, excellent IBIS, fast AF
  • a camera that can do many things, not relegated to landscape, portrait and tripod
  • beautiful LCD screen
  • histogram can show up on the sub rear screen, to keep LCD screen clean
  • not heavy camera, like a full frame DSLR
  • fantastic platform for handheld shooting thanks to contained weight, stabilization, quite shutter
  • very customizable camera
  • excellent dynamic range
  • dual gain sensor. You get fantastic push at ISO 100 and ISO 800
  • amazing wildlife camera (you can crop a lot)
  • using the GF110mm F2, with IBIS he gets stable shots at 1/15th, and without IBIS he gets same results at 1/100th or 1/125th
  • he says the vertical grip is terrible
  • EVF is great
  • the Fujifilm GFX100 is the new landscape king
  • best in class image quality
  • they give the Fujifilm GFX100 to Canon full frame DSLR portrait/wedding photographer Rene Michaud
  • Rene says it feels and looks good, but the vertical grip is not good
  • Rene is not used to EVF, he likes to see through glass. After testing it, he says he likes the EVF
  • battery life is OK not great. 800 shots with 2 charged batteries
  • Rene likes he can take his focus point all to the edge to the screen
  • quite a bit blackout time between shots. No super fast frames per second
  • Rene says it’s a stunning studio/landscape camera, you can’t argue with that. Incredible details, nice fall off
  • 2/3 of a stop dynamic range advantage of full frame, that’s significant
  • amazing image quality all around
  • 16bit gives you a bit more dynamic range over 14bit. So use 16bit if you need ultimate dynamic range
  • 14 bit reduces file size and is perfect for most cases
  • ultimate landscape camera, and awesome studio camera
  • can handle more kind of work than what medium format is usually for
  • autofocus performance is similar to Fujifilm X-T3, although the medium format lenses might not be able to drive the glass as fast as on smaller APS-C lenses
  • he think a lot of professional photographers will still stick with full frame to handle certain kind of photography, but the GFX100 can absolutely be pressed into service to do some of that
  • most enjoyable medium format camera he ever used, and feels like using full frame
  • full frame cameras are still the better choice for most, but if you want the extra resolution and the extra image quality, the GFX100 is the way to go
  • they will explore the GFX100 video capabilities in a separate video
