Fuji Film Company honorably released the GFX100 non-reflexive digital camera with 120 million pixels and a 43.8 mm * 32.9 mm back-illuminated medium-frame sensor. The new camera will become the flagship model of the GFX series of non-reflexive medium-frame digital cameras. The Chinese-frame sensor (43.8mm x 32.9mm) is about 1.7 times larger than the 35mm full-frame sensor. The GFX system has been praised by many professional photographers and photographers.

GFX100 uses a "backlit sensor" embedded with phase difference pixels, which is the first time that this technology has been applied to image sensors with a frame of more than 35 mm. The automatic focusing speed is twice as fast as that of the previous generation of GFX models (with the installation of GF63mmF2.8 lens test), while supporting moving object tracking AF and more accurate continuous AF focusing. The GFX100 has in-plane image shaking (IBIS) optical shaking technology, providing up to 5.5 * 1 "five-axis image shaking". Thanks to this, even hand-held photographs can be taken with ultra-high resolution. Compared with the current GFX50S and GFX50R models, the video shooting capability of the GFX100 has also been greatly improved. It is an innovative model supporting 4K30p video recording (10bit 4:2:2) in the same or larger non-reflexive digital cameras.

With these three innovations to subvert tradition, GFX100's innovative ability and rich functions are unparalleled in the market. It truly achieves the goal of "recording wonderful moments and leaving wonderful memories with moving pictures".

Main characteristics

(1) 120 million pixels, back-illuminated picture image sensor

The new sensor is specially designed for this camera, with 43.8 mm*32.9 mm specifications and effective pixels of about 120 million. The new sensor complements the fourth generation of "X-Processor 4" processors and provides excellent picture quality. It combines the "FUJINON GF lens" to present the unique color expression of Fuji film.

The sensor surface is covered with 3.76 million phase difference pixels (covering nearly 100%). No matter where the object is in the picture, it can focus automatically and accurately. This set up a new benchmark for the dynamic recognition and tracking performance of the non-inversion digital camera.

The sensor adopts "back-illumination" structure, which can accurately capture more light and achieve better noise reduction effect. Despite the increase of pixels, the sensor has better noise control, wider dynamic range and faster reading speed.

(2) Innovative application of in-camera image anti-shaking technology in non-reverse digital cameras with more than 35 mm frame

Generally speaking, the more pixels the image sensor has, the more likely the camera will jitter. To avoid the impact of camera jitter on image quality, Fuji Film designed an in-camera image shake-proof (IBIS) system for this 120 million-pixel, medium-frame sensor, providing up to 5.5-level image shake-proof (installation of GF63mmF2.8 R WR lens test).

The displacement structure of IBIS sensor can not only prevent image jitter in pitch and deflection motion (up/down and left/right tilt), but also prevent image jitter in shift (horizontal) and roll (rotation) motion.

Four shock absorber springs are used in the whole shutter structure to minimize the slight vibration caused by shutter operation. This design greatly broadens the application scene of the camera, facilitates the hand-held GFX100 to take ultra-high resolution photos, and makes photography more flexible.

(3) Innovation in 4K30p Video Recording in Sensorless Reverse Digital Camera with a Frame of 35 mm or more

The new image sensor complements the fourth generation of "X-Processor 4" image processing engine with fast reading speed and strong performance. It supports 4K30p video recording (external recording 10bit 4:2:2, internal recording 10bit 4:2:0) in non-reverse digital cameras with more than 35mm frame.

When choosing standard digital film format (17:9), GFX100 can record video in the sensor area of 43.8 mm wide, 23.19 mm high and 49.56 mm diagonal length. Such a large recording area surpasses many high-end movie cameras introduced in recent years, and helps to make high-quality video more easily with shallow depth of field, wide dynamic range and high ISO sensitivity. The video recorded by GFX100 can not only show more detailed texture, but also shoot three-dimensional and air sense.

GFX100 uses this sampling method, which is equivalent to rendering video with 50.5 million pixels. It also supports efficient H.265/HEVC codec and can easily record HDR video in "F-Log" and "Hybrid Log Gamma" (HLG) formats with wide dynamic range gamma curve. GFX100 is also the first model in the GFX series to adopt the "ETERNA" film simulation model, which helps cameramen to sprinkle creativity and achieve creative intentions.

(4) Vertical Clap Handle with Dust-proof, Drop-proof, Light Weight and Solid Structure for Magnesium Alloy Fuselage

Although the sensor is 1.7 times larger than the 35mm full-frame sensor, the body size (156.2mm x wide, 163.6mm x high, 102.9mm deep) and weight (about 140g with two batteries, memory cards and EVF electronic viewfinder) of the GFX100 are comparable to the flagship 35mm full-frame DSLR camera, with a minimum of 48.9mm.

GFX100 is Fuji Film's first anti-reflex digital camera designed with an integrated vertical racket handle. This design incorporates the image anti-shake structure and two batteries into the fuselage efficiently, making the fuselage lighter and thinner, while facilitating vertical shooting.

In order to make full use of the potential of 120 million pixels image sensor, Fuji film chose to isolate GFX100's "core imaging components" (i.e. lens jacket, image shake-proof structure and image sensor) from the panel of the fuselage as far as possible. This "dual structure" design not only guarantees the accuracy, but also makes the camera more robust. At the same time, it can minimize the image quality loss caused by external forces acting on the fuselage.

The fuselage has 95 sealing points, excellent dust and moisture proof performance, ensuring that the camera can also operate reliably in extremely harsh environment.

(5) With multiple display screens, the operation is more convenient and the information displayed is more abundant.

In order to display more information, the top panel of the GFX100 is equipped with a 1.8-inch multi-functional shoulder screen, while the rear panel is equipped with a 2.05-inch multi-functional display screen. They can zoom in and display EXIF data, histograms, and camera settings. Users can also set which information will be displayed on which display screen (EVF electronic viewfinder, rear multi-functional display and top multi-functional shoulder screen), so as to minimize the information displayed on the main LCD screen, which is conducive to confirming the overall viewing effect and focusing on the composition of the shot. When it is difficult to see the viewfinder or a display screen in the position of online shooting or camera placement, this function is also convenient to grasp the shooting information. In addition, the mechanical dial design of GFX camera, which was widely praised by previous generations, has been extended. GFX100 provides a "virtual dial mode". In this mode, the dial image will be displayed on the multi-functional shoulder screen at the top, which can then be used to rotate and adjust the settings of the front and rear command dials.

The buttons and dials on the fuselage are designed to make the operation simpler and more intuitive, while allowing users to freely take pictures with their cameras. The left shoulder of the fuselage is equipped with a drive mode dial, which can be switched quickly between static image, video and multiple exposure modes. Camera settings in each mode (exposure settings, white balance, film simulation, etc.) can be saved. In the future, even if it is necessary to shoot both static images and videos in one shot, the corresponding camera settings can be set up only by dialing the dial once.

(6) 5.76-megapixel EVF electronic viewfinder with a visual field of about 100% and 3.2-inch LCD display with 3.6-megapixel three-way flip

The GFX100 inherits the popular removable EVF electronic viewfinder on the GFX50S. When it is used in conjunction with the folding EVF electronic viewfinder adapter EVF-TL1, the electronic viewfinder can be folded to various angles. High-definition EVF electronic viewfinder on GFX100 has a resolution of 5.76 million pixelsOLEDMake. The magnification of the viewfinder is 0.86 times. There are five optical glass lenses, including aspheric lenses. Special designs have been made for 120 megapixel sensors that need to ensure focusing accuracy.

According to the characteristics of the subject and the needs of the photographer, the EVF electronic viewer can be set to "frame rate first", "resolution first" or "autofocus speed first" mode.

The rear panel comes with a 3.2 inch 2.36 million pixel touch LCD display that can be folded in three directions.

(7) Phase difference AF focusing technology is added to GFX100 to improve the focusing speed and accuracy.

GFX100 is the first time to apply phase difference AF algorithm in GFX series. The algorithm originates from the fourth generation X-series cameras (X-T3 and X-T30), and is highly praised for its fast focusing speed and accurate focusing accuracy. The algorithm makes full use of the 3.76 million phase difference pixels distributed throughout the sensor, and can help the middle frame camera to execute "single point" AF, "region" AF and "wide area tracking" AF quickly and accurately. When used in conjunction with fixed-focus lenses with multiple focusing lenses, the improvement effect is more obvious, and the focusing speed is increased by 210% compared with the traditional AF system.

At the same time, the GFX100 has greatly improved the accuracy of AF recognition for fashion and portrait photographers, which is indispensable to face and eye recognition. Now, the GFX100 can recognize faces at longer shooting distances, even track the human side face or moving face, and keep focusing on the object behind the obstacle.

(8) Relying on the deep accumulation in the field of traditional film to create a unique color reproduction technology, giving static images an amazing texture.

The newly developed image sensor and the fourth generation of "X-Processor 4" image processing engine work together strongly, bringing the "16-bit RAW" mode that professional photographers have been expecting. GFX100 also supports the conversion of camera files to 16-bit TIFF. In the "film simulation" mode, the resolution reaches more than 100 million pixels, and the color and tone are rich and colorful, which leaves enough space for the post-processing of photo data and meets the diversification needs of professional photographers.

GFX100 also provides a "skin effect" function to show the natural beauty effect in portrait shooting.

(9) Various other new functions and features

The fuselage of the GFX100 can accommodate two NP-T125 batteries, increasing the number of photos taken after each charge to about 800 (when using the rear display).

The camera can be powered and charged through the USB-C interface. When connected to a USB-PD adapter, it can take longer to shoot continuously and charge two batteries in the camera.

This is the first model in the GFX series to support IEEE802.11ac 5GHz, which can transmit images wirelessly at a faster rate.

Like the previous GFX models, GFX100 is compatible with "Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe ®Photoshop ®Lightroom ®" and "Capture One Pro FUJIFILM" for online shooting and RAW processing, respectively, to meet the workflow needs of a variety of professional photographers.
