Fujifilm GFX 100S

Introduction

  • announced Sept 2018 and available late June 2019
  • this camera revolutionizes the digital medium format market as it brings together for the 1st time:
    • 100mp medium format sensor (the 1st camera with medium-format BSI backside illuminated sensor)
    • 100% coverage PDAF with Face and Eye detection AF (PDAF a 1st for medium format)
    • IBIS (1st for a medium format)
    • 5fps burst (the fastest medium format?) with AF tracking
    • 4K video (1st medium format with 4K video)
    • and not only achieves this but does so for under $US10,000
  • approximately the size and weight of the Nikon D5
  • the 8bit JPEG files are 30-70Mb each, we are yet to see how massive the 100mp 16bit RAW files will be!
    • you will need a LOT of storage and super powerful computers to edit these especially if you use layers!
