I own the Fujifilm GFX100S and it astonishes me every time with its image quality.
But so far I haven’t shot a single video with it, and quite frankly, I think I never will.
However, that sensor, 70% fuller than full frame, is also astonishing video performer. Philip Bloom for example shot an entire documentary with the original Fujifilm GFX100. Gosh, some of you even mount a GFX camera on a drone for some epic areal footage!
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.
Only for Fujifilm, who won the sub 2K category, DPRTV went with the Fujifilm X-S10 and native Fujinon lens: the XF56mmF1.2 (which according to our sources will get a refresh in 2022). Btw, that lens was one of my reliable and trusted workhorses at the recent wedding I shot.
Overall this denotes that Fujifilm just made a terrific error to close their mount for so long. An error, that they finally fixed. Better late than never.
Also, APS-C dominates the sub 2K segment, showing that this sensor size (and lenses) just offers a terrific value for money.
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.
With that said, here are DPRTV’s top picks:
Difficult to pick Canon R series, as there are not really nice mid-range options and the better lens options are too expensive and break the budget
Dream Combo (Money No Issue)
