There has never been a camera that combines such stunning image quality, resolution, dynamic range, autofocus performance, overall handling, and ergonomics like the new Fujifilm GFX 100 does.
Previous medium format digital camera systems have been able to deliver very high-resolution images for a good 10 years now, but have sorely been lacking in handling and speed, particularly when it comes to autofocus performance, and especially with the limitation of only one central autofocus point.
The GFX 100 on the other hand, with its 425 auto focus points tightly spread all across the sensor, delivers blazing fast focus without ever having to re-compose.
With its swivel adapter, the high-resolution EVF can be shifted into various positions, which makes hand-holding over extended time much easier, and the 3-way tilt function of the LCD is a great help for comfortable composing whether the camera is low on the ground or high up overhead.
In early 2017, Fujifilm released the GFX 100’s predecessor, the GFX 50S, that already offered many of these unique features, and I have worked with it exclusively for the past 29 months.
He starts by saying that he does not get any attention by Fujifilm, and was not invited to Japan for the launch. So he needed to wait for the Fujifilm GFX100 to be displayed at a photography fair, and all he could do is to talk to Fuji reps there and go only shortly hands on with the camera. So what he can share for now is only a quick first look.
Other major youtube channels also complaint about Fujifilm not flying them to exclusive events around the world (which is what Sony does all the time). If this is good or bad, I leave the judgement to you.
