“Soon the Fujifilm GFX System will Make Full Frame Difficult to Choose” – Fujifilm GFX100 Review

Fujifilm has a clear strategy: do not join the overcrowded mirrorless full frame war, dominate APS-C and MF, and then attack full frame from both sides.

If that will work, only time will tell.

But GxAce seems to be one of those, who thinks this strategy could actually work out well for Fujifilm.

Back in October he published this captivating and controversial video called “Bye bye full frame“, as he believed the X-T3 was one good reason not to go full frame. If you want to see and read his arguing, check out this article.

Now he also reviewed the Fujifilm GFX100, and he says that:

in a few years, when the features and reliability and performance of the GFX100 trickle down to cheaper cost models, it really will make full frame difficult to choose over the alternative

Looking at the fact, that already now 70% of GFX users come from Full Frame, as a Fujifilm manager officially said here, he might not be too far off with his prediciton.

You can see the full review above and read a summary below.

  • it surprised him how similar it was to a Fujifilm X-T3, in the way it performs and handles
  • 10,000 seem much, but it’s priced around a top tier DSLR
  • it’s by far the easiest and most reliable medium format to use
  • images are just ridiculous
  • it’s actually a light camera
  • futuristic and modern looking design, he likes that
  • he’d like that “cyper-punk” design also for the X-T line
  • very good battery life
  • AF is not as good for video as it is for stills. He shoots manual focus in video anyway
  • he used an anamorphic adapter
  • the GFX100 opens up doors to get similar aesthetic look to an Alexa 65 or an Imax camera, for a fraction of the cost
  • he’d live Indie filmmakers to make videos on GFX100 instead of a Red or Blackmagic. You get a look that isn’t possible with those cameras, unless you go up an spend $100,000 for an Arri Alexa
  • this camera is a paradigm shift in photography
  • first MF camera that functions and works just as easily and as conveniently as your tipical mirrorless camera
  • a huge step in terms of bringing medium format to the everyday person
  • in a few years, when the features and reliability and performance of this camera trickles down to cheaper cost models, it really will make full frame difficult to choose over the alternative

Fujifilm GFX100 Finally In Stock after a Modest Wait of 6½ Months

The Fujifilm GFX100 is now in stock at Adorama and very soon also at B&H Photo and AmazonUS.

On Adorama you can save up to $200 if you purchase the Fujifilm GFX100 with:

FujiRumors told you that the demand for GFX100 cameras tripled Fuji’s (already optimistic) forecast, and Fujifilm managers later on said here that the demand was “more than twice” what they expected. But nevertheless, the wait for the GFX100 (as well as other gear, such as the 16-80 lately) was simply too long.

New Fujifilm Camera with CFexpress Cards Coming mid-late December, Says ProGrade Digital

Fujifilm CFexpress High End Camera

Now that’s interesting! :)

Prograde Digital, manufacturer of the brand-new and ultra-fast CFexpress Cards, has hinted a new Fujifilm camera featuring CFexpress card within 2019. Here is what they say (screenshot below):

Final ship date for CFexpress memory cards remains dependent on camera dn device manufacturers release of CFexpress compatible firmware. Prograde Digital is working closely with device manufacturers to coordinate CFexpress memory card launch with the release camera firmware upgrade.

Current estimated from Nikon, Canon and Fujifilm indicates mid/late December 2019 timeframe for CFexpress compatible cameras.

Now, we know that the Nikon Z series and Panasonic S1 series will be made CFexpress compatible via firmware update. So I guess that’s what Prograde Digital refers to in the first part.

However, what belongs Fujifilm, there is currently no CFexpress compatible X/GFX series camera, so no firmware will help here.

So this would mean that a new camera should come, and evidently it would be a high end camera, as it would sport the super fast CFexpress cards.

The brand new CFexpress cards are based on the same design of XQD cards, but they are over 3 times faster and are said to become the standard in the future, especially for high resolution internal RAW video recording, which is something Fujifilm managers here said they are working on.

If you want to know more about CFexpress cards, check out this CFexpress overview at B&H Explora.

FujiRumors says…

As you know, Fujifilm has registered 3 cameras in the last few months. The first two were the Fujifilm X-A7 and the Fujifilm X-Pro3. The third camera, the FF190005, has been registered back in October, and has not yet leaked.

As we told you back in August, it can take up to 6 months for Fujifilm to release a camera after it has been registered.

However, I have not heard of any new camera coming in 2019, so my personal take is that, if something comes, then it will be sometimes next year.

DPReview Products of the Year 2019: Sony A7R IV Beats Fujifilm GFX100 and Fujifilm X-A7 Pleasing Surprise

Best Gear 2019

DPReview declared their products of the year 2019.

When it comes to the overall best product, the Sony Alpha a7R IV beats the Fujifilm GFX 100.

On the other hand, the Fujifilm GFX 100 snaps the “best innovation award“, showing that Fujifilm is doing something special with its medium format line, and, as opposed to Tony Northrup GFX pessimism, I explained in this popular article why the GFX system has all the potential to break through in future.

Now back to the best of.

A pleasing surprise is the Fujifilm X-A7, a line that has been widely ignored on the web so far, but finally finds a spot in the sun, as the second best entry level ILC after the Canon EOS M200.

Check out the full ranking down below.

DPReview product of the year, 2019

  1. Sony Alpha a7R IV
  2. Fujifilm GFX 100
    Pro wedding and event photographers, portrait and lifestyle shooters, and even a certain type of videographer have kept the GFX 100 on more or less continuous backorder since it was released. You may not need 100MP, but some people do. And the GFX 100, with Fujifilm’s range of excellent GF lenses, makes 100MP shooting practical and enjoyable.

DPReview innovation award

  1. Fujifilm GFX 100
    While very little about the GFX 100 is new or unique to this model, what counts is how all the ingredients are mixed together. The addition of in-camera stabilization, impressive video capture and hybrid on-sensor PDAF to the medium format world makes the Fujifilm GFX 100 among the most capable and most innovative cameras out there.
    Fujifilm has been working hard to democratize digital medium format for a couple of years, but with the 100 megapixel GFX 100, the company completely changed our understanding of what a medium format camera could be.
  2. Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM

Best high-end ILC

  1. Sony Alpha a7R IV
  2. Panasonic Lumix DC-S1R

Best midrange ILC

  1. Canon EOS M6 Mark II
  2. Nikon Z50

Best entry-level ILC

  1. Canon EOS M200
  2. Fujifilm X-A7
    a significant camera for Fujifilm, and a great all-round option for beginner photographers in general. Significant for Fujifilm because it’s the company’s first entry-level offering that has really impressed us

Best consumer stills / video camera

  1. Panasonic Lumix DC-S1
  2. Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII

Best compact/fixed lens camera

  1. Ricoh GR III
  2. Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII
