2.Fix of minor bugs.
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
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.
“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“
Since then, I have received a few request from readers, asking me about the dark blue version.
It might have been passed unnoticed, as I already said it here, so I thought I might say it again: the dark blue Fujifilm X-A7 is already selling, but not in all countries (as reported also by pcmag).
For example, you can find the Navy Blue Fujifilm X-A7 at the Russian store interfoto here.
So far, it is not available in North America or many EU countries, but it might come, if that color turns out to be particularly loved in the markets where it’s sold. Just as it happened with the brown Fujifilm X100F, which originally was sold only in selected countries, and then found its way also in the US market, although it is now again discontinued.
