DPReview Inside the Fujifilm GFX 100 Pre-Production Assembly Line

Assembling the Fujifilm GFX100

DPReview got inside the Fujifilm GFX100 pre-production assembly line (images below) and now shared a few images and insights.

Pre-production cameras are assembled almost entirely by hand.

The IBIS unit alone is made out of over 100 individual parts. The chassis is made from magnesium alloy, with polycarbonate employed in various less structurally-critical places, such as the WiFi antenna ‘window’ and the battery tray door, parts of the facia around the vertical grip controls and so on.

From the first protoype to the final version, the Fujifilm GFX100 will get hundreds of firmware updates.

When the protoypes did their job, they will be taken apart again. What a pity… I’d gladly take one of them :).

More at dpreview.

In a League of Its Own: Fujifilm GFX100 Thoughts and Specs Compared to Sony A7III vs Nikon Z7 vs Canon EOS 5DSr

Fujifilm GFX100

The Fujifilm GFX100 just hit the world, and it did it impressively.

Medium format is no longer a studio or tripod slave, thanks to an impressive IBIS and snappy autofocus.

It’s hard to compare the Fujifilm GFX100 to anything else currently on the market. The unique Fujifilm GFX100 plays in a league of its own!

And from what we have seen in our mega GFX100 live blog, I guess you’ll agree with me, when I say that $9,999 is actually a fair price.

So let’s compare the Fujiflm GFX100 to the following high resolution full frame cameras: Sony A7III, Nikon Z7 and Canon EOS 5Ds R, thanks to the specs uploaded at the BHphoto site.

Now you say, it is unfair to compare it with full frame. And yes, it is. But it is also unfair to compare it to other medium format cameras.

It’s the first medium format camera with IBIS, it’s mirrorless, it’s fast, and it has the size of a full frame DSLR with integrated grip, such as the Nikon D5 and Canon 1Dx MK II.

And if you think $10,000 is too much for the Fujifilm GFX100, then look around and you’ll discover that a Mamiya Leaf with 50MP 44×33 sensor, which is inferior in every regard to the GFX100, will cost you $24,000!

The Fujifilm GFX100 simply sets itself in a new territory.
