Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 is about to ship, and what we have for you is one last glorious Fujifilm GFX100 roundup, before it starts falling into hands of mere mortals (with pockets a bit bigger than mere mortals ;) ).

The Slanted Lens tested the Fujifilm GFX100. Problem? They didn’t use the latest firmware that adds support for phase detection AF on GF lenses, and Lightroom still officially marks the GFX100 as preliminary supported. Sadly this makes every review so far incomplete.

With that said, here is what they think about the GFX100 (video below).

  • details are amazing
  • in medium format at f/2 you have so just very little DOF
  • dynamic range test
  • at -5 EV he is still able to recover the hightlights with no problem
  • he thinks it could have been underexposed for at least two more stops, and he’d be able to recover that
  • at +1EV he is able to hold the highlights, with just a little bit pink color shift
  • at +2EV the highlights are gone, with yellow color shift
  • at +3EV the details are gone, skin tones are yellow
  • at +4EV it’s basically blown out. No way to recover that image
  • if you work in very contrasty situations, this camera will work extremely well, because of amazing shadow recovery
  • pretty amazing dynamic range
  • ISO test
  • ISO 100 very clean
  • ISO 200 there is a little bit of grain
  • ISO 400 also a little bit of grain
  • ISO 800 grain builds up more
  • ISO 3200 grain starts to become very pronounced
  • ISO 6400 major grain. He thinks it’s unusable for stills
  • ISO 12,800 becomes pixelized
  • ISO 256,000 grain is extremely strong
  • He’d not go over ISO 400 for clean images in stills and in general up to 1600. For video up to 3200
  • even at higher ISO, the colors remain consistent, no shift
  • Autofocus
  • in stills he is not as impressed as he hoped for [I noticed when the subject was far away, the tracking was not so reliable, but more close, super sharp. I personally wonder about his AF settings. Also, pre-production, you know :)]
  • in video holds the focus well on the subject, and AF is as good as anything else on the market
  • IBIS
  • Impressive. Might be a great camera to put on a drone

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Coming with Tilt Screen

Fujifilm X-Pro3

If you are following me on Instagram, you will already know I am passing my holiday with SonyAlphaRumors in Croatia.

But if you think I am going to have a break from the rumors and the blogging, then you are terribly wrong. Just like Fuji’s new slogan, also FujiRumors Never Stops.

So what I am hearing today?

Well, I am hearing, that the Fujiiflm X-Pro3 will have a tilt screen.

Personally I am surprised, because Fujifilm has repeatedly said over the years, that a tilt screen does not fit with their philosophy for Fujifilm’s X series rangefinder line (X-Pro, X100 and X-E).

I will try to confirm this rumor as soon as possible, so stay tuned.

Review of the 4k FUJIFIlM GFX 100 for Filmmakers

Fujifilm GFX100

The vast majority of people, who are going to get a Fujifilm GFX100, will get it for its photographic virtues.

However, the Fuji GFX100 is also the first medium format mirrorless camera that can fight an honorable battle with full frame and APS-C in the video department.

4K@30p, 4:2:0, 10 bit internal… not bad at all!

This is why I decided to highlight this review by Muse Storytelling, which focuses on the Fujifilm GFX100 for filmmakers. He says:

  • the whole demo video you see has been shot handheld with Fujifilm GFX100
  • 10 bit gives you lots more colors over 8 bit and allows for more post processing
  • understanding Fujifilm film simulation allows you to create amazing images in camera
  • Velvia is great for scenes that look bright, happy and energetic
  • Classic Chrome more subtle and subdude look is great for interviews and moments with a serious or sad tone
  • external recorder for 4:2:2 10 bit image allows for simultaneous F-Log and film simulation recording
  • using film simulation you got to get it right in camera, less flexibility in post compared to F-Log
  • when using the LCD screen in bright daylight and shooting F-Log, it becomes a bit difficult to evaluate exposure and focus on the LCD screen, but it’s totally fine if you use film simulation
  • very customizable
  • changing settings takes a bit longer than on dedicated film cameras like the RED camera they use, but you can set custom buttons to speed up your workflow
  • they say in most cases, for film you better use manual focus. But the AF system on Fujifilm GFX100 is great, and for interviews with people moving back and forth, the eye AF worked better than they could have done by manually focussing
  • sweet spot for exposure seems to be 1 stop over: gets all the shadows properly exposed and away from the toe of the curve
  • when using F-log or Eterna, the GFX100 holds highlights very well
  • he is impressed with image quality, handling and features for such a compact camera with such a massive sensor
  • they will use the GFX100 a lot more in future for their video work
