Fuji GFX100

Cameta Camera interviewed Brandon from Fujifilm about the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Fujifilm GFX100. You can see both videos below.

Here is what Brandon says:

Fujifilm GFX100

  • Brandon expect the Fujifilm GFX100 to cost about $9,995, so just under $10,000
  • Fujifilm invested millions in the new processor, which allows fast autofocus on the X-T3, and the Fujifilm GFX100 will have the same processor
  • the market for 100MP cameras will expload with the Fujifilm GFX100

Fujifilm X-T3

  • it’s an excellent seller. About 1 month after release, sales are just on fire

Fujinon Roadmap lenses

  • XF16-80mmF4: it’s not a replacement for the current kit lens, just an addition. Price will be very attractive
  • XF33mmF1.0: an exciting lens

Fujifilm GFX 50R Street Photography, Kai Wong Hands On and Could the Fujifilm GFX 100 have an X-Trans Sensor?

Fujifilm GFX 50R

William Chua took the Fujifilm GFX 50R out for some street photography in Cologne. You can read the full blog post and see the samples at williamchua.com. Some excerpts:

  • Being a GFX 50s user, he was not too excited about this camera. But after using it for a few days, he has to say he loves it more and more
  • Its a great camera for street photography
  • might not be as comfortable to use with big glass like the GF 250mm
  • in a lot of his sample images, he used face detection, and he’s glad to say it works extremely well

Jonas Rask shares his impressions of the Photokina 2018 in the best way possible: by sharing wonderful images taken with Fujifilm GFX 50R and X100F. Check out his article “When the floor dust settles” at jonasrask here.

Kai Wong was at photokina and shares his walkthrough the various booths. Of course he also checked out the Fujifilm GFX 50R. Jump to minute 5:43 here, to check out the part about Fujifilm.

MediumFormat: First Impressions of the Fujifilm GFX 50R at mediumformat

PhoBlographer writes in his Fujifilm GFX 50R first impressions that the Fujifilm GFX 50R is the camera he’s been waiting for. They would like a 50MP X-Trans version and pay even more for it, and faster glass (such as the rumored GF 80mm F1.4) would also be appreciated. Read it all at phoblographer here.

Spanish: The Spanish site albedomedia (translation) goes hands on with the Fujifilm GFX 50R. They share their impressions as well as some media slides including an overview of Fujifilm’s camera history, which you can see below.

Fujifilm GFX 100 MP X-Trans

ThePhoblographer had a talk with Fujifilm USA manager Justin Stailey, mainly about the Fujifilm GFX 50R, but there was also a question about the Fujfiilm GFX 100.

Phoblographer: Why isn’t the GFX 100MP sensor an X Trans sensor?
Justin: I don’t think we said that it was or was not X-Trans. but…In Medium Format, the Bayer Sensor has proven to provide excellent image quality

So, despite hinting that a Bayer sensor is more likely than an X-Trans sensor, Fuji Manager Justin did not exclude the possibility it could be a 100 Megapixel X-Trans sensor. Read the whole interview at phoblographer.

We remind you that the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera should offer pixel shift multishot, which would indicated that a Bayer sensor is more likely. Read more here.

Fuji Guys Billy Hopes IBIS will be Implemented in Future Fujifilm GFX 50 version of GFX 100

Fujifilm GFX 50 IBIS

I was reading the first edition of the brand new Medium Format magazine, when I stumbled on this answer of Fuji Guy Billy.

QUESTION: Will this stabilization system eventually find its way to lower-priced medium format cameras or are you going to keep it for the top of the range for now?

ANSWER: It’s very early to talk about that. I think our official announcement of this 100-megapixel concept camera is sometime in the first half of next year. Of course, Fujifilm is always developing and researching how to include technologies such as in-body image stabilization to other line-ups. I hope that the technology will be implemented in the future when they introduce the GFX 50 megapixel version of the camera.”

If there ever will be a Fujifilm GFX 50 Megapixel camera with IBIS, Fuji’s medium format system would consist in:

And btw, I am really enjoying to go through the 140 pages of the medium format magazine, and I look forward to the next editions. Make sure to check it out at mediumformat.com. Lots of talented photographers sharing their thoughts and images there. It covers not only Fujifilm GFX, but also other medium format systems.

Size Comparison: Fujifilm GFX 100S vs Sony A7III, Nikon D5, Canon 1DX, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7, Nikon D850, Fuji GFX 50R

Fujifilm GFX 100

The Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera is big, but how big is compared to other cameras with integrated battery grip, the Nikon D5 and the Canon 1Dx MK II?

I thought I am going to check this out in today’s article.

Just for fun, I did throw in the brand new Fujifilm GFX 50R in the comparison.

The size is about the same of the Nikon D5 and Canon 1Dx MK II, but consider that the Fujifilm GFX 100S has a 1.7x larger sensor in it as well as in body image stabilization (IBIS), and no course no mirror.

Seen from the top (images below), the Fujifilm GFX 100S much more protruding viewfinder makes it thicker overall. I remind you, that you can remove the viewfinder on the Fujifilm GFX 100S. Might be handy if you want to store it in the bag, since it makes the camera sensibly sleeker.

At the very bottom you can see the real life size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100S, GFX 50S and GFX 50R, that I made at during my stay at Photokina. You can see that, with battery grip attached, the Fujifilm GFX 50S is actually slightly bigger than the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel.

I also added a size comparison between the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel versus the Sony A7III, Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7 and Nikon D850, but those cameras do not have an integrated battery grip.

RUMOR: Fujifilm GFX 100 with Pixel Shift Multishot

Fujifilm GFX 100

Photokina 2018 is history and comprehensively covered for you here on Fujirumors, first with the breaking rumors, then with the coverage directly from Photokina.

But just like Fujifilm’s new slogan, also FujiRumors “never stops“.

So for me, it’s already time to look into the future in order to keep up with all breaking and exclusive rumors.

After having successfully told you almost a year ago (in December 2017) that the Fujifilm GFX 100S will come with IBIS, we now have more details for you.

According to our sources, the Fujifilm GFX 100S will have:

  • pixel shift multishot

Pixel shift multishot can be used with static subject. The IBIS moves the sensor into different positions and takes several images that it then combines into a single high resolution image (just in case 100 MP is not high resolution enough already ;) ).

Currently the Fujifilm X-H1 can’t do pixel shift, as the special X-Trans array might make pixel shift more complicated compared to the convential Bayer sensor. But this does not mean, that Fujifilm won’t figure it out at some point, how to bring pixel shift also to X-Trans.

The Fujifilm GFX 100, though, will feature a new Bayer sensor, hence pixel shift might be easier to achieve.

In addition to the new rumored specs today, a Fujifilm manager told us here that the GFX 100S will have:

The Fujifilm GFX 100 will surely be beast of a camera.

Fujinon GF Lens Roadmap Timeline 2019/2020 and More Fujifilm GFX 100 Details with Image Sample Super Crop

Fujifilm GFX System

Fujifilm has recently announced a new GF lens mount roadmap. The official roadmap, though, didn’t gave any timeline about when the future GF50mmF3.5 pancake, GF100-200mmF5.6 and GF45-100mmF4 will hit the market.

Now the Japanese site dc.watch has shared a couple of media slides, including one that shows the roadmap for the various lenses. We can see:

  • 2019
    – GF100-200mmF5.6 R LM OIS WR
    – GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR
  • 2020
     – GF45-100mmF4 R LM OIS WR

As we told you back in December 2017, Fujifilm plans to release 2/3 lenses for each of their systems (X and GFX) a year. This means that we might see one more lens coming n 2019 for the GFX 50S as well as 1 or 2 more lenses in 2020. Check out our big rumor timeline to see what could come.

The slides also give us some basic details about these lenses, which I have all listed at the bottom of this article.

Other media slides (also below) show some more details the Fujifilm GFX 100. So we discover that (unsurprisingly) it will feature the X Processor 4 and we can see a first crop made out an image taken with the GFX 100.

Don’t worry, of course I did google translate the Japanese description of the slides for your guys. Here on FujiRumors we like to treat you well and save your time ;).

Fujifilm Manager: GFX 100 Full Sensor PDAF, no Crop 4K@30p. Engineer who Developed Velvia Film now Develops Film Simualtions

Fujifilm GFX

Hugh Brownstone had a half an hour chat with Fujifilm manager Justin Stailey. It’s an interesting and relaxed talk at a glass of beer, I invite you to check out here.

For those in a hurry, here are some key points from what the Manager says:

Fujifilm GFX 100

  • 100 MP sensor
  • IBIS, because 100MP is sensible to vibration
  • 4K @ 30P with full sensor readout (no crop). No pixel binning. It’s gonna be compressed in some shape or form
  • price under/around $10,000
  • 100% phase detection coverage, but lenses with lots of glass are heavier to move, so it’s never going to have as fast AF as APS-C
  • coming first half 2019

Fujifilm Color Science

  • metric color is different from memory color. Velvia was designed to make things look the way your mind remembers it (memory color). It’s interpretation, it’s how your brain sees it versus what was really there
  • one of the long time Japanese engineers at Fujifilm responsible for Velvia film simulation development, did actually also develop Velvia film in the past

Mixed Talk

  • new age of mirrorless is starting, since more player are in the market. The acceptability of mirrorless has increased now. Fujifilm focuses on what they do best, APS-C for sport, action and video, and Medium Format for portrait and fashion
  • pixels on GFX 50R and GFX 50S are bigger than full frame. Bigger pixels capture more light
  • sensor, lenses, processor, color science, the whole package
  • he does not like that photokina will take place every year in spring, right after CP+. A 2 years circle was better and Fujifilm has organized their announcements also according to photokina
  • just because we announced X-T3, it does not mean that the X-T2 is worst now. Photographer makes more difference than the gear
  • some dealers in USA already make more than 50% revenue by selling mirrorless
