For the last 8 months Fujifilm let Cinema5D closely monitor the birth of their new flagship large format sensor creation, the Fujifilm GFX 100.
Now they published their first video covering the birth of the Fujifilm GFX100. Part 2 will follow later and bring us inside the Fujifilm factory.
Here is what we learn, and at the bottom some screenshots from the video:
Decisions and Developing Start
Fujifilm GFX100 Sensor Data
Photons to Photos has released prelimiary Fujifilm GFX100 (non production) sensor measurement data.
- Photographic Dynamic Range versus ISO Setting
- Read Noise in DNs versus ISO setting
- Input-referred Read Noise versus ISO setting
In terms of dynamic range, the 100 megapixel GFX100 beats all full frame cameras. If you need even more dynamic range, you have to pay $40,000 for a Phase One.
The bump you see at ISO800 is due to dual conversion gain.
Earlier today we shared the DPReview lab shots, which in my eyes showed impressive results in favor of the Fujifilm GFX100.
The GFX Community
Compared to the Fujifilm GFX50S, the Fujifilm GFX100 shows noticably less moire, and it is also sharper than pretty much any other camera on the DPReview database. Regarding color noise at high ISO, the Fujifilm GFX100 is also superior to the GFX50S and any other full frame camera for that matter.
If you are into medium format GFX, then the GFX100 looks like a sensible step up in image quality.
And now, happy pixel peeping to all of you :)
