DPReview Studio Test Scene: 150MP Phase One XF IQ4 vs Fujifilm GFX100(S) vs Sony A7RIV vs Panasonic S1R vs Fujifilm X-T4

A few days ago, DPReview has added the Phase One XF IQ4 150 Megapixel camera to their studio test scene database.

So how does this $50,000 monster compare to our humble Fujifilm GFX100 (and hence also to the brand new $6,000 Fujifilm GFX100S)?

Well, I don’t know you, but I frankly can’t see any noticeable difference, in some cases I even think the GFX100 looks better.

At high ISO on the other hand, the GFX100 clearly performs better than the Phase One XF IQ4, even though the sensor is the same (just cut bigger on the Phase One).

This might be in part merit of the excellent Fujinon GF lenses, which have no issue to take advantage of all 100 megapixels offered by the GFX100(S). On the other hand, it might also be that both cameras just resolve basically everything possible out of the DPR studio scene.

I did also add the two current highest resolution mirrorless full frame cameras to the comparison, the 61MP Sony A7RIV and the 47MP Panasonic S1R to the chart.

Where both medium format cameras simply have no issues to resolve everything out of the chart, we can see that the full frame cameras definitely show up with more false colors, moiré and artifacts in the fine details.

Just for fun I added one comparison with the Fujifilm X-T4 vs Sony A7RIV and Panasonic S1R.

Of course the Sony and Panasonic have more resolution power, but when details become really fine, and hence when all those megapixel would be really needed, in some areas the Sony A7rIV as well as the Panasonic S1R have the tendency to show more moiré, partially ruining the megapixel advantage they have, where the X-T4 shows no moiré.

As an X-Trans lover, I do hope Fujifilm will stick with it in their APS-C cameras and offer us something around 32+MP or so in the future, maybe with the Fujifilm X-H2. I am sure it would give great results.

Down below you can see some of the screenshots I took. You can head over to the DRP studio comparison tool and make your own comparisons.

Size Comparison: Fujifilm GFX100S vs Canon R5 vs Sony A7IV vs Nikon Z5 vs GFX50R vs GFX50S vs GFX100 vs X-T4

Here is a quick size comparison I made between the upcoming Fujifilm GFX100S and the GFX50R, Sony A7rIV and the Canon R5.

For a sensor 70% fuller than full frame, the camera looks pretty damn compact if you ask me, considering that it has IBIS.

Well, fellow FR-readers, my wife is having some contractions right now, so whenever she gives me the signal, I will grab the car and drive her to the hospital. I might be offline for a little bit, but if anyone of you wants to make more size comparisons, feel free to share it in the comments down below for the community.

In fact, FR-reader Steven already made one for us, by overlaying the Fujifilm GFX100S to the Fujifilm GFX50S and Fujifilm GFX group member Bipin overlayed the GFX100S to the original Fujifilm GFX100 and the Fujifilm GFX50R.

You guys are the best!!!

The Impossible Specs Comparison: Canon EOS R5 vs Canon EOS R6 vs Fujifilm X-T4 vs Fujifilm GFX100 vs Sony A7rIV vs GFX50S

Well, it’s hard to compare Fujifilm flagship cameras to anything else, for the simple reason, that Fujifilm decided to stay out of the full frame war, and focus on the advantages that other formats like APS-C and Medium Format offer.

So, inevitably, every comparison can be called “unfair”.

For example, B&H Explora said in their dedicated Canon EOS R5 comparison article, that:

there are plenty of real advantages to medium format, which is why we aren’t daring to make a comparison with the Fujiflm GFX100, but sticking with the Fujifilm GFX 50S here.

But has that ever stopped us from making unfair comparisons? I don’t think so.

So, while waiting for the first real life reviews to hit the web, and hence the first real life comparisons, down below you can find a nude and crude specs comparison between the Fujifilm X-T4, Fujifilm GFX100, Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.

MapCamera: Fujifilm X100V Top Seller, Great X-E3/X-H1/X-Pro3 Sales and APS-C Dominates Full Frame

Just yesterday here we reported how, according to BCN ranking, Fujifilm saw, in March, a huge 115% increase in sales in Japan, while all other camera manufacturers dropped up to 50%.

Now Japanese store MapCameras published their top selling camera rankings.

Keep in mind, though, that this is not representative for overall sales.

The most reliable data we probably have about the worldwide success of various camera brands, is this report from a Techno System Reports, a major marketing research company located in Japan that sells this data at a very high price, but somehow it went public at the Japanese site toyokeizai, and FujiRumors spotted it for you and shared it here.

The data of Techno System Reports reflects the mirrorless camera sales, and it shows that Fujifilm is on the third position, just a tiny margin behind Canon, and substantially behind Sony.

With that said, if big retailers share their sales data, it might not be representative for the overall market, but it can still give an approximate indication of what the market wants.

With that said, here are the top sellers at MapCameras for March 2020.
