The Future of GFX
And then it became clear to me: Fujifilm medium format has a glorious future ahead. :)
Just two thing before we start:
- Tony Northrup shared a video (see below), where he didn’t sound very confident about the GFX future. I thought about it, and the result is the article below
- This article is based on the assumption, that in future only higher end cameras are 100% safe from the smartphone attack, since professional photographers won’t ever switch to smartphones for their Pro work

So let’s talk about it.
