Fujifilm GFX100 Assembly – 860 pieces for 1 Great Camera!

Last week DRPreivew brought us inside the pre-production Fujifilm GFX100 assembly line, where the Fujifilm GFX100 is manufactured by hand.

Today, while scrolling through the very active Fujifilm GFX group, I noticed this post by Ken from Channel X, that gives us a few more interesting pictures from inside the assembly line.

Fujifilm GFX100: No IBIS/OIS Combo, X-H1 vs GFX IBIS, Fujifilm GFX 100 Media Sheets, F-Log and More

In a recent interview, Fujifilm managers unveiled that it took them 3 years to develop the IBIS mechanism for the Fujifilm GFX100.

1.5 years were shared with the Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS mechanism development. But once the IBIS for X-H1 was ready, it took them additional 1.5 years for Fujifilm GFX100 IBIS.

At Fujikina 2019 in Toyko, Fujifilm displayed the ASP-C and MF IBIS units. You can see the difference in the image below.

Imaging-resource also shared a video and some GFX100 media slides. They say:

  • IBIS and OIS do not work together. Could change in future with firmware update, as it happened with Fujifilm X-H1
  • 4K@30p full sensor readout, but uses line skipping in vertical direction

The Fujifilm X-H1 IBIS looks small next to the Fujifilm GFX100 one. However, the X-H1 IBIS is still too big. It’s one of Fuji’s priorities to make it even smaller in order to give us a smaller Fujifilm X-H2, or maybe even fit it into a future Fujifilm X-T4 and X-T40 or any other camera that might come down the road.

Fujifilm GFX100 Lab Test Images vs Phase One XF IQ3, Sony A7rIII, GFX50S, Nikon D850

Fujiflm GFX100 Lab Test

We love photography, because…

… we love the art of painting with light, the creative process of composing a story, of freezing fugitive moments and capturing ephemeral beauty in an image forever.

The camera specs are the last thing we care about.

Ok, now let’s get serious and have an exciting pixel peeping time! :D

Let’s compare the Fujifilm GFX100 with other high-resolution cameras like the Phase One XF IQ3 100MP, Sony A7rIII, Fujifilm GFX50S and Nikon D850.

Keep in mind that these are JPEGs from a pre-production Fujifilm GFX100. We can’t really make final conclusions, until we finally have standardized tests using RAW files developed in the same RAW converter.

Anyway, judging from the JPEGs, the Fujifilm GFX100 beats them all in terms of sharpness and high ISO performance, including the $30,000 (or is it $50,000) Phase One XF IQ3 100MP.

However, the there are some problems: for example, GFX100 sample was shot at f/8, whereas GFX50 at f/9. Let’s hope their RAW comparison will be more accurate.

Holy Crop! The Fujifilm GFX100 is pixel peeper paradise!

Down below I share some samples available at the imaging-resource comparometer here, where you can compare the Fujifilm GFX100 to any other camera in their database.

We love photography, because we can experience a childish joy of discovery, sometimes also by digging deep into the most technical aspects of it. :)
