Fujifilm GFX XG Concept vs Panasonic S1R, Sony a7iii, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R Size Comparisons

Fujifilm GFX XG vs Panasonic S1R

Fujifilm GFX XG vs Panasonic S1R

Fujifilm GFX XG

Fujifilm has recently shown a couple of early Fujifilm GFX concepts. You can see them all here.

Amongst the others, there was the Fujifilm XG, an X-T styled Fujifilm GFX.

I was curious to compare its size to the one of current mirrorless full frame cameras, so I took the image shared by dpreivew, threw it into camerasize, and manually made accurate size comparison with the Panasonic S1R, Sony a7iii, Nikon Z7, Canon EOS R as well as the Fujifilm GFX 50R.

Fujifilm obviously designed all the early concepts keeping in mind that they have to accomodate a rather big shutter mechanism. The arrival of the global shutter should allow Fujifilm to make the camera sensibly smaller.

Fujifilm GFX Early Concept Mockups Image Gallery – Current Concepts, Future Reality?

Fujifilm SP-X Tilt Screen

Fujifilm GFX Concepts

At the recent Fujifilm X summit, Fujifilm displayed a modular Fujifilm GFX “Omega” concept, inspired by Hasselblad’s 500-series square format film cameras.

The Omega concept had “direct control for aspect ratio and unusual ‘roller’ style controls“.

It never became reality because of the big shutter mechanism required for the medium format sensor, a problem that could be solved with the global shutter.

Fujifilm displayed even more early Fujifilm GFX concepts at the X summit, such as two X-T camera alike concept and also the progenitor of the current Fujifilm GFX 50R, called Fujifilm SP-X, with sub-ISO dial, a weird tilt LCD screen and no EVF.

Fujifilm’s goal is to create a medium format camera close in size to current mirrorless full frame cameras. Future technology like the global shutter will help to achieve this goal. So the mockups we see today, are Fujifilm’s goal for tomorrow.

Fujifilm FF180005 Registered: Fujifilm GFX100 or Surprise Camera?

Fujifilm FF180005

Fujifilm just registered a camera with the code name “FF180005” here, as spotted by nokishita.

Fujifilm has already announced they will release the Fujifilm GFX100 in the first half of 2019, so we can assume that’s the camera that hides behind the mysterious code name.

FujiRumors has exclusively leaked the entire Fujifilm GFX100 media slides, with lot of details in it. This can’t be found anywhere on the web, since it is confidential Fujifilm material.

However, the “FF180005” could be also another not yet rumored Fujifilm camera.

Fujifilm GFX 100 Media Slides: 50% faster AF with Phase Detection at -2 EV @ F2, Why Only One Shooting Mode Dial Explained and More

Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 removed all dedicated dials except for one “Shooting Mode Dial“, which will allow you select between stills, multi or movie mode.

We had a huge debate about the Fuji GFX100 dial removal here on Fujirumors (includes a poll) and mostly people were not happy at all about it, because they feel that dials and retro-controls are part of the X series DNA.

Well, it seems that Fujifilm was not insensible to the mostly negative feedback that came from the FujiRumors community and they now felt the need to explain why they removed the dials. Check the “new shooting mode switch operation” section below.

I will add all the screenshots to all the media slides below, but I also write them all down here on FujiRumors, just in case you are watching this on a smartphone and you don’t want to open the slides and keep up zooming in and out to read them… we like to take care of our readers here on FujiRumors ;).

You will also find the hands on images by dpreview, who also said:

  • textured finish similar to that used on the GFX 50S
  • integrated grip provides more space for shutter mechanism and IBIS
  • about the size of Nikon D5 or Canon EOS-1DX II – comparison here
  • lacks the retro-style dials
  • large 3-position dial on the left is used to switch the camera between movie, stills and multiple exposure modes
  • ‘drive’ button at its center
  • large top screen won’t make miss the large shutter speed and ISO dials of its predecessor too badly
  • EVF clarity and resolution excellent. Free from the pixelation and noticeable lag which affected the finder of the 50S
  • viewfinder unit is removable, but when the GFX 50S finder is attached to the GFX 100, they won’t get the benefit of the greatly improved resolution of the newer EVF
  • all-new OLED ribbon display on the back, below the main LCD will serve to show the status of key camera settings
  • tilt and touch screen
  • While the main shutter dial has an on/off switch collar, the same control on the secondary shutter release serves to lock/unlock the button
  • Battery life: ~400 shots (CIPA) per single charge
  • dual SD-card slot
  • next-generation XQD/CFexpress media in the GFX 100 is being discussed for future products in the GFX lineup
  • microphone and headphone jacks, plus HDMI and USB, courtesy of a USB 3.0 Type C port
  • possible to charge the GFX 100 over USB
  • 4K/30, 10bit, 4:2:0 video internally and 10bit 4:2:2 externally via HDMI
  • GF 45mm F2.8 delivered plenty of sharp images at 1/20sec and a couple of acceptably sharp shots at shutter speeds as low as 1/6sec
  • GFX 100 could support sensor-shift features in future [already rumored on FujiRumors]
  • AF speed appears very good, and certainly greatly improved over the original GFX 50S
  • available on-time, in late spring or early summer.
  • price around $10,000
