Fujifilm Introduces FUJIFILM GFX100 IR (Infrared) Version Large Format Mirrorless Digital Camera
TOKYO, November 25, 2020 – FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is pleased to announce the launch of FUJIFILM GFX100 IR version (GFX100 IR), a new version of the GFX100 large format mirrorless digital camera, now with infrared image-making capabilities, ideal for use in forensic, scientific, and cultural preservation applications. Infrared images can now be made at 100MP – and even at 400MP through GFX100’s new Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function – to reveal intricate details within a subject or scene that can only normally be seen through the infrared spectrum.
In addition to all of the benefits GFX100 already provides, GFX100 IR also includes the ability to:
Make images in the infrared spectrum at an incredible 100MP or 400MP of resolution
Images made of a subject within the infrared spectrum can reveal details that a regular (non-IR) digital camera or the naked eye cannot see. For example, in the field of forensics, this can be an important tool in helping to identify counterfeit documents. For individuals working in cultural preservation, GFX100 IR can be used to analyze pigments and in works of art and historical artifacts, even if they have degraded over time. Using the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot feature on GFX100 IR can create 400MP images with incredible detail and little-to-no color fringing.
Using GFX100 IR with the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot feature is invaluable for cultural research because reviewing images of a subject in infrared could ultimately lead to potentially unlocking untold secrets from some of history’s most treasured artifacts. It can also be an incredibly powerful tool for researchers using the images to evaluate works of art or pieces of evidence.

Unauthorized copying, reproduction or reprinting of the images is strictly prohibited.
Use special filters to make images within specific wavelengths
Different IR filters in front of the camera lens can be used to make images at various wavelengths, which can reveal different details within a subject. However, using the appropriate IR cut filter will allow GFX100 IR to be used normally (same as the standard GFX100) to make regular color images within the visible spectrum.
Additionally, when the camera is set in a fixed position and paired with Capture One, or a similarly compatible software application to engage tethered capture functionality, users can create images with the same angle of view, and maintain a simple capture to output workflow for maximum efficiency.
Availability of GFX100IR is limited to 4 locations, Asia, North America, Oceania, Europe. If you have any questions about this product, please contact your regional contact number.
