Fujifilm GFX100

Capturing and recording precious moments in ultimate quality, FUJIFILM are delighted to introduce the GFX100: a camera of unparalleled innovation and versatility

The camera is equipped with a 100MP, 55mm diagonal length large format sensor.  Combined with fast and accurate AF phase detection, 4K video and in-body stabilisation, the FUJIFILM GFX100 offers the highest class resolution in the history of mirrorless digital cameras.

Fujifilm GFX100

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) is delighted to announce the release of the GFX100 mirrorless digital camera featuring a newly developed 102 megapixels (approx. 55mm diagonal length) large format sensor.  The new camera will be the flagship model of the GFX system of mirrorless digital cameras, which have consistently received strong praise from professional photographers and photo enthusiasts for their use of a 43.8mm x 32.9mm large format sensor, which is approximately 1.7 times larger than a 35mm ‘full frame’ sensor.

Fujifilm GFX100

The GFX100 features a “back illuminated sensor with phase detection pixels,” the first of its kind for image sensors larger than the 35mm full frame format. Autofocus speed is up to twice as fast as previous GFX models (when using the GF63mmF2.8 lens), whilst also offering Tracking AF on a moving subject as well as more accurate Continuous AF.

Another world’s first for larger than the 35mm full-frame format cameras is the in-body image stabilization (IBIS), delivering “five-axis image stabilisation” of up to 5.5 stops*1 As a result, ultra high resolution photography can even be achieved when shooting hand held. The video capability has also been greatly improved from the current GFX 50S and GFX 50R models, to become the world’s first mirrorless digital camera with an image sensor of this size or greater to offer 4K30p video recording capability (10bit 4:2:2).

Fujifilm GFX100

With these three “world’s first” features, the GFX100 is a camera of unparalleled innovation and versatility, fulfilling its purpose of “capturing and recording precious moments that will never be repeated again” at the highest image quality possible in a mirrorless camera.

Main features

(1) 102MP approx. 55mm diagonal length large format image sensor

・The new sensor, specifically developed for this camera, measures approx. 55mm diagonally and boasts an effective pixel count of approx. 102 million. When combined with the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processor, it delivers the world’s highest level of image quality with exceptional colour reproduction unique to FUJIFILM and the ultra sharp “FUJINON GF lenses”.

・The sensor has 3.76 million phase detection pixels across the surface (approx. 100% coverage) enabling fast and accurate AF regardless of where a subject is within the frame. This sets a completely new standard in the dynamic mobility of large format mirrorless digital cameras.

・The sensor’s “back illuminated” structure receives a greater amount of light accurately whilst achieving better noise performance. The sensor has lower noise, greater dynamic range and faster readout despite the higher pixel count.

(2)  The world’s first five-axis IBIS in a cameras featuring an image sensor larger than the 35mm format

・Generally speaking, the higher the pixel count an image sensor has, the higher the likelihood of camera shake. To avoid this threat to image quality, FUJIFILM has designed an IBIS system specifically for the new 102MP large format sensor which gives up to 5.5 stops of image stabilization (when using the GF63mmF2.8 R WR).

・The IBIS sensor shift mechanism ensures images are stabilized not only against pitch and yaw movements (up / down and right / left tilting) but also against shift (horizontal) and roll (rotational) movements.

・The entire shutter unit is suspended using four springs to minimize the effect of shutter shock. This dramatically broadens the scope of situations where you can shoot hand held with the GFX100 and still enjoy exceptionally high resolution, to push the boundaries in photography.

(3)  The world’s first 4K30p video recording capability among consumer mirrorless digital cameras with a sensor bigger than the 35mm format

・The combination of the new image sensor with high speed readout and the high performance fourth generation “X-Processor 4” engine has given the camera the ability to record 4K30p video (10bit 4:2:2 externally and 10bit 4:2:0 internally), a world’s first amongst large-format consumer mirrorless digital cameras carrying a sensor bigger than the 35mm format.

・When the standard digital cinema format (17:9) is selected, the GFX100 records video with a sensor area measuring 43.8mm (W) x 23.19mm (H) and 49.56mm diagonally. This is larger than many high end cinema cameras in recent years, making it easier than ever before to shoot high quality video with shallow depth of field, wide tonal range and high ISO sensitivity. The GFX100 produces footage with more detailed textures whilst reproducing three dimensional definitions and the very atmosphere of the scene.

・The GFX100 uses oversampling with the data equivalent to approx. 50.5 megapixels to render video. It also supports the highly efficient H.265/HEVC codec, as well as “F-Log” which has a gamma curve with a wide dynamic range and the “Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)” for recording HDR footage with ease. The GFX100 is also the first model in the GFX System to incorporate the “ETERNA” cinema film simulation mode, delivering optimum solutions that reflect videographer’s intentions and facilitates a variety of creative expressions.

(4)  Dust-resistant, weather-resistant, lightweight and highly robust magnesium alloy body with integrated vertical grip

・Despite featuring a sensor which is 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full frame sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions (156.2mm (W) x 163.6mm (H) x 102.9mm (D), measuring 48.9mm at the thinnest part) and weight (approx. 1400g including two batteries, memory card and EVF).

・The GFX100 is the first FUJIFILM mirrorless digital camera to incorporate an integrated vertical grip. This has led to a thinner form factor that is comfortable to hold in your hand, despite accommodating IBIS and two batteries in the body.

・In order to maximize the capabilities of the 102MP image sensor, the GFX100’s “core imaging unit” which consists of the lens mount, image stabilization mechanism and image sensor, is as isolated from the main body panels as much as possible. This “double structure” design ensures a high level of precision and robustness while minimizing any loss in image quality caused by external stress to the body.

・Weather sealing is applied to 95 locations across the camera body to achieve an advanced level of dust- and moisture-resistance, so that the camera maintains reliable operation even in the toughest conditions.

Fujifilm GFX100

(5)  Enhanced operability and versatile information displays

・The GFX100 features a 1.80 inch sub LCD monitor on the top panel and a 2.05 inch sub monitor on the rear panel for even more versatile information display. They show EXIF data, histogram and camera settings in large text. Various information can be allocated to each of the monitors (EVF, rear-panel LCD displays and top-panel sub LCD display) to make the viewfinder less cluttered and easier to use. This ensures clear information visibility when tethered shooting or when the camera has to be placed in a position that makes it difficult to see the viewfinder or either monitors. Furthermore, for users who prefer dial based operations, a characteristic of previous GFX cameras, the GFX100 has a “Virtual Dial Mode,” which displays the image of a dial on the top panel sub LCD monitor that can be rotated and adjusted with the front and back Command Dials.

・Buttons and levers for camera operations have been kept to a minimum for simple and easy to understand handling, whilst ensuring that you can hold the camera comfortably in the hand. On the left shoulder of the camera body is the Drive Mode Dial, which enables instantaneous switchover between Still Image, Video and Multiple Exposure modes. You can store camera settings for each of the modes (exposure settings, white balance, Film Simulation, etc.). Even when you need to shoot both stills and video in a single session, it only requires just a single dial movement to recall your preferred camera settings.

(6)  76 million dot EVF with 100% coverage and 2.36 million dot tilting 3.2-inch LCD display

・The GFX100 inherits GFX 50S’s popular detachable EVF system that can be adjusted to various angles when using the EVF Tilting Adapter EVF-TL1. The world’s highest resolution 5.76 million dot OLED panel has been used to develop the GFX100 high definition EVF unit. The viewfinder has a magnification of 0.86x and contains five optical glass elements including aspherical elements and has been specifically designed for the 102MP sensor, which requires extreme focusing accuracy.

・The EVF can be set to the “Frame Rate Priority,” “Resolution Priority” or “AF Speed Priority” mode according to subject characteristics and the needs of the photographer.

・The rear panel monitor uses a 3.2 inch 2.36 million dot touchscreen LCD that can be tilted to three directions.

(7)  High speed and high precision phase detection AF that sets a new standard for large-format cameras with a sensor larger than the 35mm format  

・The GFX100 is the first model in the GFX System that uses our phase detection AF algorithm, adopted from the fourth generation X Series cameras (X-T3 and X-T30), and which is praised for its precision and speed. The algorithm makes full use of 3.76 million phase detection pixels, placed across the entire sensor, to set a new standard in AF speed and precision for large format cameras performing the standard “Single Point” AF as well as “Zone” and “Wide Tracking” AF. The effect is particularly noticeable when using prime lenses with a heavy set of focus lens elements, achieving speed improvement of up to 210% over the conventional contrast AF system.

・At the same time, the GFX100 boasts dramatic improvement in the accuracy of Face and Eye Detection AF, which has become an essential feature for fashion and portrait photographers. The Face Detection function now works at a greater shooting distance, and shows significant improvement in tracking the side profile of a person or when a person moves erratically within the frame, while also maintaining focus on a subject that goes behind an obstacle.

(8)  Unique colour reproduction technology, developed through our history in photographic film to deliver astonishing quality in stills

・The combination of the newly developed image sensor and the fourth generation “X-Processor 4” processing engine means the camera also supports “16-bit RAW” mode, requested by many professional photographers. The GFX100 also supports 16-bit TIFF in camera file conversion. The ultra high 100MP+ resolution and rich colour and tonal reproduction found in our “Film Simulation” modes, significantly boosts photo data’s post processing tolerance, meeting the diverse needs of professional photographers.

・The GFX100 also features a “Smooth Skin Effect” function, which automatically smooths the skin tones, a function often performed in post processing when shooting portraiture.

(9)  Various other new functions and features

・The GFX100 can accommodate two NP-T125 batteries, extending the number of frames per charge to approx. 800 when the rear LCD is used.

・The camera can be powered and charged through the USB-C connection. Connecting an external battery that supports USB Power Delivery enables even longer continuous shooting and simultaneous charging of the two batteries in the camera.

・This is the first GFX Series model that has a supports IEEE802.11ac 5GHz, enabling even faster wireless image transfer.

・Similarly to previous GFX models, the GFX100 is compatible with “Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” and “Capture One Pro FUJIFILM” for RAW processing and tethered shooting to accommodate the workflow of any professional photographers.


Creating Gotham

Tanya discusses her passion for photography that inspired her to capture the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for April 2019

The XT1 totally changed the way I shot, moved, even approached people.

I am a Canadian who has lived in MX for 7 years.  I have loved photography for as long as I can remember and would categorize myself as an advanced/ enthusiastic amateur.  In the past I shot with several Nikons but  began to feel that they were too heavy and cumbersome for my style of photography.  I wanted a camera that was smaller and easy to use.  About 6 years ago I purchased the XT1 and it was love at first touch.  The XT1 totally changed the way I shot, moved, even approached people.  It was such a joy to have everything I needed on top of the camera, all the adjustments are there and so easy.  I have since purchased the XT3, which I am enjoying  and prefer to use prime lenses except for the awesome kit 18-55 kit lens.  Fuji cameras are also really COOL looking.  In the past I shot RAW but the jpegs are really good, so now that’s my choice.   I shoot manual with auto focus and try to get the best shots I can with my camera.  The XT1 and XT3 are fabulous cameras and I would encourage anyone who is thinking switching to check one out. I also use the X70 which is super compact and so discreet.

My approach to photography is quite simple. . .  I try to be in the moment and go with the attitude that anything is possible if I am aware and open.  I try and shoot 3-4 times a week, sometimes I walk for 30 minutes and other times for a few hours.  Living in Central Mexico has provided unlimited opportunities, culturally, visually and spiritually.  I have always shot in colour but recently have challenged myself to work in B&W.  I would say my style of photography is “street” and “street portraits”.  I love to photograph people,  I actually NEED to photograph people!  There is something inside of me that just wants to express this.  Sometimes I will ask permission to photograph a person and other times no.  I never get tired of seeing a new and interesting person.

I photograph for me,  it’s my passion and my pleasure.  I have never sold my work but I do print it large for viewing in my home.  Street photography is not for everyone but for me it’s a true joy!

Creating a Flash of Red

Craig explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for March 2019

On a rare sunny day in March, in Manchester I took my trusted Fuji X100F out at lunch time for my usual street photography wander.

The sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable.

I have seen endless photos of this particular archway in St Peters Square, so usually avoid it as a place of interest. However, on approaching it this day the sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable. I tried a few angles before deciding on the one I wanted (framing with the shadows) and waited. Its a busy entrance with people walking in and out all the time, then a lady appeared dressed in red and stopped (hurrah) so it was just a case of waiting for the exact moment when no one else was in the frame. I reckon I waited around 20 minutes before I got the shot, but it was well worth it and hopefully adds something to the huge collection of photos at this location.

My general style of photography is street, and anything that contains people or a story. My X100F is always in my bag (and usually my hand). Feel free to add me @stickboypics on instagram.


Creating Shingle Street

Scott explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for February 2019

This image was captured on a second holiday to Suffolk visiting family. I had researched the area and intended visiting Shingle Street on my previous trip but didn’t get around to it due to family commitments. This time I had set aside half a day purely for photography and the weather was pretty flat, which suited the image I had in mind.

My wife and I arrived at around 1 o’clock, parked up, wrapped up and went for a wander with the cameras, me with my xPro2 and the fantastic 16mm f1.4 and Karen with her X-30. Progress was slow on the deep shingle but we made it down to the edge of the lagoon and, after watching the kite surfers enjoying the wind and sheltered water for a few minutes, I started looking for compositions.

The shingle shifts constantly with large storms changing the landscape completely, moving lagoons and the shape of the coast.

This results in clean graphic shapes, which I wanted to capture. To accentuate these I used my 10 stop ND filter to slow my shutter speed and smooth out the water in contrast to the textured shingle.

Landscape and street are my escape from the type of photography I shoot at work as a Scene Examiner. I studied photography in Glasgow after leaving school, 3 decades ago now, and then worked in a studio for a few years. That’s when started my current career. I don’t get out to shoot for myself as often as I would like so try to make the most of it when I can.

My personal images are on my Instagram feed @soco_bloke (you’d only see my other photography if you were a jury member!).


New Fujifilm X-T30 Announced

The X-T30 is equipped with a host of new functions, making it a small yet powerful companion for any photographer.

It offers outstanding performance, utilizing the 4th Generation image sensor and processor which also includes 26.1 megapixel resolution and fast high-performance AF.  In addition, phase detection pixels are now across the entire frame (100%). Other advanced features include a Focus Lever for shifting a focus point easily, a new intuitive touch-screen panel with improved response, and an improved body design that has offers better holding stability to ensure comfortable shooting even with larger lenses.

 

The AF algorithm has been improved from that used in the renowned FUJIFILM X-T3 to deliver even more advanced AF-tracking performance. This includes enhanced accuracy in face / eye detection and the introduction of a Face Select function to provide priority auto-focus on a selected subject.

 

This evolution of AF performance is available not only with still photos but also during video filming. Improved exposure stability during face / eye AF and face recognition in the AF-C (continuous AF) mode adds to ease of use. Video performance itself has also been enhanced, offering high-resolution audio recording and smooth 4K/30P video recording.

 

As a result of the above developments, the camera appeals to a broader range of users from professional photographers to first time beginners, by being always able to deliver premium quality pictures with ease, regardless of experience.

Creating Manchester by Keith Vaughton

For me Street Photography is about creating something extraordinary from the ordinary and this particular image was all about timing and a little bit of luck.

What first attracted me to the scene were the dabs of light coming down the street on to the orange awnings and the road. This image needed a certain type of subject to come through the frame for it to work as I looked up the street and I could see a lady on the opposite side wearing what looked a trilby hat. I was only going to get one chance at this so I adjusted my angle as not to get the parked cars in the frame and it was at that moment I decided to turn my X100T round into a vertical position so I could fill the frame and give it more depth. As she crossed the road I quickly moved to the right and fired off 3 frames, the last one being this one.

I always shoot in JPEG when out on the street and for this I used Classic Chrome.

Creating Presa by Julian Fletcher

Julian took this photo in the walls of an old dam in Lanzarote, near the town of Mala.

He used a Fujifilm XH-1 with a 16mm lens and shot handheld at f1.2 for 1/15 second.

You can find its exact location here https://goo.gl/maps/c4r6nPN39pA2

Julian told the Fujiholics website that the equipment he used was "a large plastic sheet normally used for protecting furniture from dust and paint while decorating and a small battery powered led light. The plastic sheet was simply placed over the model with the led light set behind her."

Colour grading and cropping was all done in Photoshop. Lightroom was not used this time as there was no need for retouching etc.

Another shot from the same shoot can be viewed on Julian's Instagram feed www.instagram.com/jue_pix and some of his other work can be found on

Julian also thinks it is important to credit his model Audrey Bovet www.instagram.com/audreybovet
