Fujifilm GFX100 will Get Free ProRes RAW via Firmware Update Soon and Unclear if X-T4 will Get it Too

We received report (thanks), that Fujifilm will soon release a free firmware update for Fujifilm GFX100, which will add ProRes RAW capabilities to Fujifilm GFX100.

ProRes RAW is a new codec released by Apple, that allows for much smaller video file sizes than before, while retaining the higher quality video data rates and editing capabilities, of the original Uncompressed RAW video.

If the Fujifilm X-T4 will get it too, it’s still unclear. But we know, those things are always harder to achieve with X Trans sensors (such as pixel shift, too, for example).

Speaking of pixel shift, that’s also to come with a firmware update on Fujifilm GFX100, but I am not sure when this will happen. Fujifilm is still working full power on it. It will be released, only when ready.

Looks like the Fujifilm GFX100 will be covered with lots of Kaizen firmware love!

Fujifilm GFX 100 Pixel Shift Multishot Just a Matter of Time, says Trusted Source

Fujifilm GFX100 Pixel Shift

Back in October 2018, I told you the Fujifilm GFX100 will have pixel shift multishot. However, in March 2019 here, I got an update from a source, that pixel shift multishot won’t be ready for launch.

I have asked sources about this feature again, and they told me it is high on Fuji’s To Do list, but it will be only released once working perfectly.

I asked for a time frame, but the source could not give it to me. All it said is that it’s “just a matter of time“.

Pixel shift multishot is easier to achieve with Bayer CFA than with X-Trans CFA, which is why the Fujifilm X-H1 still does not have it, and I would not be surprised to see it coming first to the Fujifilm GFX100.

FYI: Another advantage of Bayer, is that also the electronic image stabilization (available in Fujifilm X-T100) is easier to achieve than with Bayer.

On the other hand, the recently awarded X-Trans sensor, has other advantages. We have written about the Pros and Cons of Bayer vs X-Trans here.

A bit out of topic, but Google just shared a white paper and video explaining their multi-frame super resolution feature that is what powers the Pixels’s night mode for example.
A good reminder that technology is not waiting and will always continue, and that Fujifilm should take note of it!
