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:
- improved handling and usability. GFX100 is high resolution, but you can easily shoot handheld
- noticably faster AF than previous GFX cameras
- IBIS transforms usability. OIS and IBIS do not work together
- vertical grip is not ideal in terms of handling and usability, and joystick is harder to reach
- best EVF he has ever used
- mode dial allows you to swtich between stills, video and multi mode. Video settings are stored completely independent from stills settings
- he’d like even larger buttons and dials, and a D-Pad
- outstanding resolution, even when shot handheld, thanks to IBIS
- boost in resolution compared to GFX50, without losing dynamic range and adding ISO noise
- rolling shutter: in video much reduced compared to stills
- outstanding details without compromising dynamic range or noise, something a full frame camera would struggle with
- so much more responsive than traditional medium format, but not as fast as the fastest X series camera
- step up in quality over full frame
- the body, GFX lenses have been waiting for
- most useable and desireable medium format to date
- most compelling reasons to step up from full frame for best quality#
