The Fujifilm GFX-H100 4K Filmmaker’s Camera with X-Trans Sensor? More Slides and Details on FujiRumors


An old slides is circulating again on the web, regarding a video centric Fujifilm GFX-H100 camera with X-Trans sensor.

Of course FujiRumors reported about this already a few months ago here.

Not only, we have also shared additional 3 slides exclusively for you, which go even more in detail on how Fujifilm imagines this camera.

So let me recap that for you down below.

X Trans Fujifilm GFX100 Details

The Fujifilm slides below have been sent to me (thanks), and they show what evidently is a Fujifilm X-Trans IV sensor with 101 megapixel for improved 4K video performance.

It’s called X-Trans IV, because it is based on the same sensor architecture of the Fujifilm X-T3 / X-T30, just 4 times bigger.

Is Fujifilm planing a Fujifilm GFX100 with X-Trans coming for best 4K video performance?

Let’s go through the slides (that you can see at the bottom of this post):

Fujifilm says that the main solutions for 4K video are:

  • 4K Bayer pattern
  • 4K 3CMOS / 3CCD
  • downscale from 5K, 6K or even 8K Bayer, which is most used in mirrorless cameras

The latest solution, the downscaling from 5K, 6K or 8K has some negatives:

  • Long readout time/frame, “jello effect”
  • Overheating
  • a large number of false-color even with low-pass filter
  • difficult to remove colored moire
  • need interpolated data from near pixels

Fuji’s best solution for 4K

  • Standard RGB UHD quality
  • ADC level fast readout by RGB-Pixel binning
  • Large Format, Shallow depth of field
  • high sensitivity, no false-color
  • no need to corrected displacement

The slides show a pixel array of 11646 x 8736, which makes exactly 101,7 megapixel! That’s the Fujifilm GFX100 senor. But they say it’s an X-Trans IV 3×3 RGB unit, whereas the Fujifilm GFX100 has a conventional Bayer layout.

The binning readout would be of 3882 x 2912 x RGB, which would result in 34 megapixel.

Is an X-Trans sensor Fujifilm GFX100 on the way?

I will investigate and let you know here on FujiRumors, hence make sure to follow us on Facebook, Flipboard, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube and Twitter.
