Fujifilm GFX100S vs Canon R6: Is Medium Format Worth It? This Guy Says “No” (and My Thoughts)

Alex Barrera wonders: is medium format worth it?

In an attempt to figure out the answer, he shared a blind test using the following gear:

In the blind test, all images marked with “A” belong to one camera and all images marked with “B” belong to the other camera.

I did my the test myself, and honestly, right at the very first image comparison (see image below) I thought “oh please let “A” be the the Fujifilm GFX100S“. And lucky me, camera “A” is indeed the Fujifilm GFX100S.

Megapixel had not much to do with my preference. It’s a compressed youtube video, how could that matter. Megapixel matter more when you work with the files in post, or when you print.

My preference had more to do with the output of the Fujinon GF80mmF1.7 lens itself, which is very similar in terms of shallow depth of field to the RF 50mm f/1.2 L, but the bokeh looked just more pleasing in my eyes. Then there are other subjective elements like the colors (Provia in this case) and so forth. Overall, I mostly picked A (GFX100S).

But what about Alex? Is medium format worth it?

No, it’s not worth it, and here is why:

Fujifilm GFX100S and GFX100 Get Blackmagic RAW and New Features Guide for Firmware 1.20/4.10

Earlier today Fujifilm dropped a bunch of firmware updates, some more substantial, some just bug fixes. You can see the full list here.

The biggest changes come for the Fujifilm GFX100S and Fujifilm GFX100, which get Blackmagic RAW support.

This required Fujifilm to update the Owner’s manuals for those two cameras.

But there are firmware updates also for Fujifilm X-T4, X-T3, X-H1, X-T30, X-E4, X-Pro3, X100V, Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX50R. Make sure to check out all the details and download the latest firmware at our dedicated article here.

And even though I am not into video with my Fujifilm GFX100S, I will update my camera anyway, because who knows what Fujifilm fixed with that “fix of minor bugs” phrase. Sometimes they fix major bugs actually.

Don’t ask me why they do it. It’s a great news if Fujifilm fixes a major bug. No need to hide it behind a generic “minor bug fix” phrase.

Fujifilm Releases New Firmware Updates for X-T4, X-T3, X-E4, X-Pro3, X-T200 and X-A7

Fujifilm has released a couple of new firmware updates. Down below all details and download links.

In theory this is just a minor bug fix update, but I remember when I was on holiday last year in South Italy and Fujifilm released a new X-T4 firmware with “minor bug fixes”. Intrigued by that, I tested the new firmware during my holiday, and found out that it fixed the exposure stepping in video, which is all, but just a minor bug fix.

This is why I generally always recommend to update your cameras. Fujifilm can fix a typo in the menu, but also way bigger issues with such “minor bug fixes”.

Also, Fujifilm promised us a major GFX100 firmware update and also a major X-S10 firmware update. Sadly they have not been released today. I hope this does not mean there was some sort of last second delay (wouldn’t be the first time).

In any case, here on FR I’ll let you know as soon as the new firmware for GFX100 and X-S10. So follow us.

With all that said, you can find all details and links for the latest firmware updates down below.
