The New Fujifilm GFX100

There is a bit of confusion, so let me clear things up, as well as add something new to it.

Yes, Fujifilm did announce a new Fujifilm GFX100, but that one is an infrared version for forensic use, pretty much as the special Fujifilm X-T1 infrared version.

The Fujifilm GFX camera we rumor here on FujiRumors since a while now, is not an IR Fujifilm GFX100 camera and also not a monochrome camera.

As we told you here, it’s a 102 megapixel Bayer sensor camera that is smaller than the current Fujifilm GFX100. Also, as we told you in October, it will come in early 2021.

IBIS or Not?

Now, some wrote me, speculating that the new smaller GFX100 won’t have IBIS. And in fact, the IBIS unit on the current GFX100 ain’t small at all.

We already made a rendering of the Fujifilm GFX100 IBIS unit mounted on the Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX50R. As you can see, it is definitely too big for any other GFX camera. But since then, Fujifilm has made serious progress when it comes to making the IBIS unit smaller.

And here is what I can tell you today: the new smaller Fujifilm GFX100 coming in early 2021 will have IBIS.

This comes from trusted sources.

Fujifilm Digital Camera Range: Making Sense of the Line-Up, What Should be Dropped, What Should Stay… and Where is the X-H Line?

Fujifilm shared this Pyramid explaining their Current Camera Line-up
Fujifilm shared this Pyramid explaining their Current Camera Line-up

I already said it in my X-S10, Attack on Sony article: the Fujifilm X-S10 makes a whole lot of sense.

And yet, I do understand one of the critiques made to Fujifilm: their line-up is huge and potentially confusing.

There are indeed some lines, that in some occasions do not not differentiated themselves enough from each other.

But this is an issue Fujifilm realized and I feel that they are taking care of it, for example:

  • the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is a unique machine, with a concept, so far nowhere to find
  • Fujifilm is aware that the the Fujifilm X-H2 must differentiate stronger from the X-T* line in order to continue to evolve separately

Fujifilm understands the problem and is finding ways to separate the lines better.

And yet… there are some lines that should be dropped, in my opinion.

Let’s take a look it at, by using an official Fujifilm media sheet that has been sent to me, which shows a pyramid with all Fujifilm X series cameras listed and ordered by Fujifilm itself.

RUMOR: Next Fujifilm GFX with 102 Megapixel (not Monochrome) and Much Smaller than Fujifilm GFX100

A few days ago we told you that the next Fujifilm GFX will be launched in early 2021.

Rarely I have received so many emails after a rumor, like it was with this one, which is a great sign, as it means the interest among the FR-community is huge for a GFX successor.

I also received a bunch of emails of FR-readers, telling me that this would be a monochrome GFX, which is absolutely not correct, hence here is an update to the rumor, that will set things right.

The next Fujifilm GFX will have the same sensor of the current Fujifilm GFX100, hence a 102 megapixel backside illuminated Bayer sensor with full phase detection coverage. Which still today is basically the state of the art when it comes to sensor technology.

Also, it will be much smaller than the current Fujifilm GFX100.

If you are a GFX lover, make sure to stay tuned on FujiRumors, and also to join our facebook group below. You’ll be the first to know more about the new GFX camera.
