Fujifilm GFX100 Pixel Shift First Tests: Single Shot RAW vs Pixel Shift DNG (Files to Download) and new Eye Autofocus Feedback

Over at our massive Fujifilm GFX group, lots of Fujifilm GFX100 shooters are right now testing the brand new 400 megapixel pixel shift feature introduced with the latest firmware update to the Fujifilm GFX100.

I filter out some of the feedback for you here in this article, but make sure to check it out all over at our GFX group.

But there is more than just pixel shift.

In fact, users report also about significant eye autofocus improvements (which is listest by Fujifilm in the official improvements list).

With all the (well deserved) focus on pixel shift, we must keep in mind that applications for such a feature are limited. For most users the more relevant firmware change will be the autofocus improvement. And it seems that Fujifilm tweaked that one quite a bit, too.

So, down below there is some feedback. Make sure to join and check out the GFX group for more.

Fujifilm Releases Firmware Updates for Fujifilm GFX100 (Pixel Shift), GFX50S and GFX50R

Fujifilm has release firmware updates for Fujifilm GFX cameras, which include the long promised pixel shift firmware for GFX100.

– New features guide: English, Français, Deutsch, Español, Italiano, Nederland, Polski, Svenska, Norsk, Dansk, Pусский, Suomi, 中文简, 中文繁體, 한국어, ภาษาไทย, Arabic

The firmware update Ver.3.00 from Ver.2.01 incorporates the following issues:

  1. Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function is added.
    In the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode, the camera takes a series of 16 RAW images and by using in-body image stabilization(IBIS), moves the image sensor to get a high-resolution and real color* image. The multiple images are then combined to create a Digital Negative (DNG) RAW file using the FUJIFILM Pixel Shift Combiner software.
    * real color : As a pixel of an image sensor has one color filter from red, green or blue, we cannot detect the real color for the pixel. We need to interpolate the other colors from the surrounding pixel data for that pixel. This is called the demosaicing process. In case of Pixel Shift Multi-Shot photography, we can receive red, green and blue data for every pixel position. This means we receive real color information when using Pixel Shift Multi-Shot mode and the demosaicing process is not necessary.
  2. Ratings to images recorded in the [Jpeg + RAW] mode are applied to both Jpeg and RAW files.
  3. The phenomenon is fixed that in a multiple-flash shooting where the EF-X500 is used as a commander, flashes in some groups sometimes don’t fire correctly. Also in case the EF-X500 is used as a commander and the EF-60 as a remote flash, upgrade the camera firmware to the latest version.
  4. Accuracy of the Eye AF function for the front eye is improved
  5. Fix of minor bugs.

BREAKING: Fujifilm GFX100 Pixel Shift Firmware coming in Late November

A long wait is going to end very soon.

  • October 2018 – FujiRumors shares the first rumor about pixel shift on GFX100
  • March 2019 – FujiRumors confirms the pixel shift rumor, but also says it won’t be ready for GFX100 launch
  • July 2019 – FujiRumors confirms once again: pixel shift will come for sure, but later

Still people where sceptical about my rumors. But all doubt was finally dissipated when Fujifilm officially announced the pixel shift firmare in Februaruy 2020.

And today I can tell you that the long wait will soon been over.

I have been informed by trusted sources (thanks), that the Fujifilm GFX100 pixel shift firmware will be released in late November.

The new pixel shift multishot feature will take 16 images, shift the sensor using IBIS and finally combine all images into one monstruous 400 megapixel file that will send your files into crop-heaven!

The very same second the firmware will go live, you’ll read about it here on FujiRumors. So definitely stay tuned on FujiRumors.

It was so busy, that making a Top 10 list is kind of limiting.

In fact, many in the top 10 were rumors about the Fujifilm X-S10. Hence, in order to avoid the X-S10 dominance in the list, and give space also to other relevant and interesting news, I will sum X-S10 rumors into one point.
