As an upgrade over the 51.4-megapixel GFX 50R camera, Fujifilm has expanded its medium format portfolio with the launch of the Fujifilm GFX100 camera. The GFX100 medium-format camera will be available for a price of $9999.95 (approx. Rs 6,97,500).
The Fujifilm GFX100 comes with a 102-megapixel medium format sensor with a focal length of 55mm that sits between 35mm and 120mm. The camera is powered by a Fujifilm X-Processor 4 processor and can deliver 16-bit RAW files with high dynamic range and colour fidelity. It’s also the first medium format camera to equip phase detection autofocus, with 3.76 million phase detection pixels.
There’s a 5-axis image stabilisation built into the camera which can get 5.5-stops of stabilisation which is also helped by the design of the shutter system which is suspended with the help of four springs to minimise shutter shock. The camera will be able to shoot at a native ISO of ISO 100 which can be upped to ISO 12,800.
The GFX100 can shoot 4K videos at 30fps and comes with Fujifilm’s bunch of film simulations. The camera can output uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 footage to an external recorder with the help of an HDMI cable. The camera is housed inside a magnesium alloy body which is weather-proof.
Fujifilm describes the use of the GFX100 for professional applications like printing images for billboards so as to utilise the full 102 megapixels.
The GFX100 camera medium-format camera will be available for a price of $9999.95 (approx. Rs 6,97,500) starting from June.
