And since the GFX system is flexible enough also for video work, there GFX cages out there, for example from Smallrig.
Now we have a new addition, coming from LockCircle, and it’s made for the Fujifilm GFX100S. You can see some images above and you find the press release, details and links below.
This cage is designed for high end professional medium format cinematography. So if this is your thing, definitely check it out. And since the GFX50SII uses the identical body, I guess it would work on that one too. But I the GFX50SII does not shoot 4K video, so I guess it is not as an attractive video option as the GFX100S.
DPReviewTV published a video about their favorite camera and lens combinations for portraits at different price points.
Before we go to their top picks, a few thoughts.
In all combos below $3,000, DPRTV picked third party AF lenses to couple with Sony, Canon or Panasonic bodies. This just shows how precious third party autofocus lenses for a system are, as they help to keep the overall costs down by offering at the same time a good image quality.
And if money was no issue at all, they’d still get the GFX. It’s simply the best of the best, if you value also features like autofocus, eye detection and other advantages a modern digital camera can offer.
But the delivery bottleneck is definitely not yet over. The camera remains out of stock at BHphoto here and AmazonUS here, and once they are sold out at Adorama, who knows for how long it will remain on back-order again also there. Last time I found the GFX100S in stock was 1 month ago at Moment. It sold out within minutes and has been unavailable since then.
