2019 seems like the year for innovation in the world of photography and cinema. Fujifilm definitely believes it to be so as is evident from their moves in the mirror-less market. They kickstarted 2018 with the lavish XH-1 and their medium-format offering the GFX 50, and then disrupted the market towards the end of 2018 with their budget mirrorless offerings the X-T100 and X-T3.
2019 seems to be no exception, having launched the X-T30 earlier this February and now they’ve just dropped this monster at CP+ 2019 in Japan. We had been hearing about it on Fuji rumors website for the most part of February and it is finally here.
GMax Studios chief Gorky M is playing correspondent today and has sent us a video and some images of the medium-format monster. Though the prototype is up for display, all of the specs aren’t revealed yet.
Here are some rough specifications of the Fujifilm GFX 100S
43.8mm x 32.9mm sensor (1.7x bigger than full-frame)
10-bit video recording
X Processor 4
3-way articulating screen
Phase Detection Autofocus
The GFX 100S features a built-in vertical grip like a Nikon D5 or Canon 1DX and an extra command dial. More specs would be revealed in the second quarter this year. The GFX 100 is said to retail for close US$10000
Here is a video from the Fujifilm booth at CP+ 2019 in Japan.
