Now if that painting is about 150 DPI it means 5905 x 4724 dots, which is a 6K photo. Hardly enough for a screen display! Look at any part of the scene with extreme fine detail and the S1 doesn't have the same resolution as the 96MP it claims. And that means shallower DoF, which not is desirable in macro photography. The Fujifilm GFX 50S is a mirrorless medium format camera produced by Fujifilm.It was the first camera featuring the Fujifilm G-mount.The camera was announced by Fujifilm during the photokina 2016 exhibition in Cologne, Germany, and production began at the start of 2017.The camera was available for sale from February 28, 2017.. The Fuji GFX100 certainly ain't that camera -- so why the question about a camera you are never gonna buy? Well said. But its not important for most pictures that people actually take. Excessive. It also features nearly 150 wonderful images from past Olympics games. LMAO. Fujifilm's 3.00 firmware update adds a new Pixel Shift Mult-Shot mode to its GFX 100 camera that works alongside a new Pixel Shift Combiner program to output 400MP Raw images made up from 16 individual still images. almost useless for many of us who wants to snap non-stationary subjects. Excelling with still photography applications, the 102MP 43.8 x 32.9mm BSI CMOS sensor achieves impressive image quality with high sensitivity […] Take a look. Detachable EVF-GFX2 electronic viewfinder: 5.76M-dot OLED, 100% coverage, 0.86x magnification (35mm eq. @Snapper2013 - 'There are many Canon lenses that have image stabilization so not having IBS in the 5DSR is not really a big issue'Give me a break...there are a lot more Canon lenses that do NOT have IS. Sub-leagued by its peers; they 'll 'claim'. I am not panicing - But they are actually doing worse at the moment than some other companies that have been in deep sh!t. X-Trans just works fine (at least for me).. So APS-C is close enough to Half-frame, but of course you will completely disagree... And if someone claims that 99% of photographers knows "full frame" means 35mm sensor, then that is the hyperbole. The GFX 100 uses a twin-grip design, and no dedicated dials which radically changes the way the camera handles. The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. "False comparison. With maybe niche high-end pro models remaining. Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. Amazing details in the photographs but in some cases maybe too much detail for certain subjects. Fujifilm GFX 100 IR è la copia speculare di GFX 100 ma con sensore all’infrarosso: 102 Mpxl effettivi, processore X-Processor 4, gamma ISO nativa 100-12800 (espandibile a 50-102400), file Raw 16-bit, AF ibrido con 3.76 milioni di pixel a rilevamento di fase distribuiti su quasi il 100% del sensore e stabilizzazione interna IBIS in grado di compensare fino a 5.5 stop. You are talking about the lens.Instead, I am an artist, and I am talking about the photograph: a file or a print. How many reviewer in the DPR has even few classes about English literature? In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that might be a bit older but still offer a lot of bang for the buck. I just had a look at the stuff Jim Kasson did. $2,999 is the right answer to the new Sony A7R iv. I think we pointed out that you need to think about shutter speeds and drive modes pretty carefully, but not that it couldn't be used outside the studio. "We don't use "35mm" because it leads to sentences such as: "The X100 has a 23mm lens which is equivalent to 35mm in 35mm terms." Meaning you can get same quality out of 10Mpix than with a 50 Mpix.Like example 8x11" print: Go Fujifilm!!! Where mFT is not forgiven, certainly not Panasonic, Its AF is not bad at all, it is very good actually. Notice, I used the word "may", no absolutes here, just an opinion of someone who does portraits. You can call an orange an apple but at the end of the day it's still an orange. If they sell tons of them they will because people want MF not a FF replacement. We've been shooting the Phase One IQ4 alongside the the GFX 100, so the difference between the two (in terms of being able to shoot hand-held, having the battery endurance to practically shoot outside the studio, in terms of focus accuracy and speed) are covered in the conclusion. I love the bigger sensor and the whole experience. Then, if you print the photo (the example above, 1:1 and 35 mm object) both to the size of 36 cm x 24 cm, the following happens.Now in the FF print the butterfly 35 cm wide, but in the MF print it is smaller, depending on the size of the sensor (44 x 33 or bigger).Again, a lot to with the sensor size. Yes, a comparison with a PhaseOne and a Hasselblad H6D camera, in terms of how to work with those systems, through the eyes of a professional who depends on these systems, is very welcome. Here's how one photog put it on PetaPixel:There has never been a camera that combines such stunning image quality, resolution, dynamic range, autofocus performance, overall handling, and ergonomics like the new Fujifilm GFX 100 does. I am sorry but these MF camera's have been compared to the FF ever since the GFX 50 came to the market three years ago. The Sigma 65mm F2 DG DN is for the photographer who wants a focal length that falls squarely between 50mm and 85mm. Exactly , my opinion is same, cannot say about mobile camera but definitely a good DSLR above 12 mp, takes almost same picture in good daylight and 99 or may be 99.9 percent fail in quick blind test , I m very sure , and 90 pc take picture in good daylight . The GFX, FUJIFILM’s mirrorless digital camera system, has achieved the highest level of image quality in the world of professional photography. Its just placebo, ofc those images cant pop out. "fast lenses are used to create a thin depth of field, not to keep the iso down", "With a medium format, a f2 lens delivers super thin DOF which is already very hard to use (at 100mp)". The world around you changes the moment you hold this camera in your hand. 'What's the best mirrorless camera?' Okay, but I've tried the D810, and noted no shutter shock. Thanks rhonald, now I know to never waste my time reading any publications from them. GFX100 combines decades of experience, knowledge, and research into a mirrorless large format camera that redefines the boundaries and limitations of how photographers and filmmakers creatively express themselves. Optimized for a variety of applications and packed with state-of-the art technology, GFX100 is designed to provide you with the best incredible image quality possible, regardless of the situation. Maybe today we should call it full miniature format to make the owners proud. "...As you can see, it does very well. They are amazing! If you're limited by available DoF and need to increase the ISO, you aren't getting all the benefit of the larger sensor. The GFX 100 is no sports camera, but its AF system is pretty snappy if compared to other medium format cameras. S1R however gets silver while it does not seem to be worse in any way o at least not as much as the price would suggest. You see 1:1 means the same object size in both sensors, but sensors are of different size. Shutter lag? I have a D800E and have not experienced SS issues but note, I've not researched SS issues with the D800. Quite surprised by the size - seemed smaller than I thought it would be. The 102-megapixel Fujifilm GFX 100 boasts the best image quality of any camera we've ever reviewed. Amazing work can be done with decade old gear, with lenses that are not the sharpest in the bag, with sensors that are worst you can buy. Without the release of GFX cameras, I could never afford diving into digital medium format cameras. The GFX 100, at this stage is notthing but a very expensive cameras playing to a niche market. Focus drift sounds like a non-trivial problem for something geared towards studio and product shoots, no? This camera is DIFFERENT than Canon's and Sony's FF high res smaller sensor variants and will outperform both for it's intended purpose on multiple levels. The duplication of control isn't always successful. What’s the best camera for around $2000? It's not a lack of professionalism you're seeing, it's an acceptance that language moves on. Holy moly , look at the 4. picture in the Japan-gallery (the lady with the blue jacket in front of flowers)! However I prefer to say that the photographer also frames the target (moving or zooming).Lenses do much more than a camera body (electronic sensor) and the quality there really matters, though there are optical laws that cannot be changed.This is something I think has not been discussed enough.DPReview uses a test photo to compare IQ of different camera bodies.But they are not done with the same lens (like D810 and D850). All I know is that the Fuji cameras I have held all look great, but feel cheap for lack of a better word. The distance to the display is usually 60 cm, but sometimes even 40 cm (I have a very good near vision). APS-c is 365 mm2 and mFT 224 mm2. Sure, I guess that depends on what you feel is acceptable focus, but it looks consistently behind the rider. This is made possible thanks to FUJIFILM's expertise in medium format which has been gained since the days of film cameras. For us, the continuous focus really comes into play when we shoot film. As if DR is the pinnacle of image quality. Not 16-bit RAW just 14-bit like all other manufacturers offer. no IBIS, and stripping out other features. If it isn't Fuji is straddling and should have put a foot down in FF. It’s going to be interesting to see what the same rating on that camera will be once it’s fully reviewed too. But..always mentioned as a downside as compared to some APS-c cams. That would depend, a tiny thumbnail perhaps (that is about the only circumstance), Based on my analysis, I'd say it is 600 times better. In the GFX50 R results is plenty of moire, one of the downsides. 90 is a far to high score considering the price and how slow it is. ", There is *no* ultimate do-everything camera. Tethered Support for Capture One Professionals Everywhere: Tethered capture is a necessity for many professional large format camera users and the GFX100 works with Capture One software to help photographers create, manage, and maintain a streamlined workflow from capture through to delivery. Ie. Processing the files for printing is totally another thing, where the real difference is made, instead using specific lens or sensor. The addition of on-sensor phase detection for faster focus and in-body image stabilization significantly expands the range of photography it can apply itself to. Excerpt of the report: That would be quite interesting with some adapted Leica and Zeiss. Compared to traditional large format digital systems, GFX100 raises the bar in auto-focus performance by utilizing AF phase detection pixels across most of the sensor to help photographers obtain focus wherever they choose to position their subjects in the frame. All sensors from the 1/2.3" up to 35mm are Small Formats, just like in the film time all from 8mm to 35mm were Small Formats. @PNad - Well I have news for you. I don't really care for MF. Take a closer look. The Fujifilm GFX 100 is a medium format camera with a whopping 102 Megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor. HAR, One of our biggest issues with the D810 was the softness and often significant blur induced by shake caused by the mirror and shutter mechanisms, particularly with VR lenses where the vibration reduction mechanism seemed to interact negatively with the shock caused by the moving mirror and/or shutter. However those that are serious about their photography will still want a real camera with decent lenses. FUJIFILM GFX 100 Body GFX 100 combines decades of experience, knowledge, and research into a mirrorless large format camera that redefines the boundaries and limitations of how photographers and filmmakers creatively express themselves. GFX 100 with the recent lenses means cropping for me, meaning there are other options like Sony a7R IV, possibly with the sharp FE 100-400 /f4.5-5.6. fuji stated once that they use bayer on the gfx line because processing xtrans is immense, to calculate, xtrans is much more efficient on low pixel count. Also, choose from 18 different Film Simulation modes, built upon Fujifilm’s heritage and color science know-how, to achieve an artistic vision and even adjust parameters such as tone, dynamic range, clarity, and various effects directly in camera to create special recipies entirely in-camera. Do your enjoyement out of a camera directly tied to financial performances? Also, it's probably the focus and lens alignment - with these high resolution test shots, it almost always makes a difference where exactly you are looking: Many high res cameras can give you that; I’ve seen it in my portraits quite often.I’ve always wondered: what did the camera actually focus on? With Capture One, raw Fujifilm images can be processed quickly with the option to apply Fujifilm’s unique Film Simulations during file conversion for even greater artistic possibilities. One is FF (36x24) and the other is MF (44x33). Now this isn't all that surprising, but as usual, the forum crowd, with some exceptions, fails to see that, and JK has shown that exactly this kind of detail slips past him time and again. Last I looked, the Imaging(photography, including Instax) division is not much more than 10% of their overall business. We will see. 1:1 is same regardless the format. So really, they're not giving the full picture. I think early next year the camera will retail for $3,500 and lower by the end of 2020. Technical Editor Richard Butler's pick was the unusual lens that gave him the opportunity to try something new. "not talking about the same Panasonic model as elvissa1" Yep, I realised that sometime after I posted :/"with these high resolution test shots, it almost always makes a difference where exactly you are looking:"The resolution certainly looks identical in the sample you posted but I would argue that there isn't as much fine detail to resolve in that portion of the scene as the portion I posted. When anyone says FF it is understood by 99% of photographers to be 35mm. Overall, I feel it was well reviewed, but I also felt like it had some odd positive skews where performance was mostly neutral/adequate. There's no reason to believe they're not 16-bit. Get a puppy or a wife. Hi mrpuggy,Yep, I hear you and I would agree with you assessments. If you have oodles of cash and the need for some of its capabilities it is a possibility. This isn't to take away from the GFX 100's performance but it would be inappropriate for me not to acknowledge that, if money really is no object, there is a class of cameras beyond this. 'Doomed as FF competition'. I'd LOVE to see a comparison of PRINT sizes done by DP Review staff on prints made by this camera, full frame, and other crop sensor cameras- up to 20x30 prints. Even the 50MP GFX50s/R have shown that for most people, 50MP on a MF camera at around $4000-$5000 is about the limit most people are going to pay for such technology (At least, right now). It appears that pixel shift delivers higher resolution but not equal to the MP count. You can adapt faster FF lenses to GFX cameras. Sharpness is also enhanced, while moire and false colors are near eliminated through the omission of an optical low-pass filter. "...From the point of view of image quality alone, the GFX 100 is the best camera we've ever reviewed (though its larger sensor 150MP peers should out-perform it)...". But even they say that this is not representative of the community and not total sales. It's almost as if image stabilization drastically improves the ability to get good results out of high-MP cameras when they aren't locked down on tripods... Shutter shock, mirror slap, and lack of IBIS certainly hurts the 5DS/R. And higher in commercial shooting you go, far more there is editing and adjustments done. We've been shooting the GFX 100 in a range of circumstances, to see how adaptable it is. The 16 bit RAW from the Fujifilm GFX100 is also pure marketing. The size of the sensors in these two medium format cameras are the same; measuring 43.8mm x 32.9mm Fujifilm call this format Super Full Frame. The GFX 100 brings the well-polished interface from the Fujifilm X-T3 but adds an even greater degree of customization. Irony here is that the new Fuji probably is the ultimate crime scene camera... Maybe more ironic is that there wouldn’t be any photos because his wife surely isn’t going to bother... @Ijclark - that could be the best and funniest comment i've ever read on here.... hahah, Great camera, well done Fuji. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. DPReview TV: Is the Fujifilm GFX 100 good for video? a 45MP FF sensor is more than plenty for me, as it is probably for many on here, especially those just posting online or to social media. The world's highest level of photographic image quality is produced by the integration of a large 43.8x32.9mm CMOS sensor (FUJIFILM G Format) ... FUJIFILM GFX Special Site. As for macro there is a guy who is using it for macro and the results are spectacular. The new camera will be available for special order in early 2021. racin06 If your correct then Fujifilm is gonna feel the squeeze of larger FF sensors biting into the profits of their successful APSC. $5k maybe, but then there is the cost of lenses, which is not too appealing to me. The FUJIFILM GFX 50S delivers the world’s best image quality. The previous 50MP sensor in the GFX and Hasselblad X1D is only 14bit - although Hasselblad always claimed 16bit, which was pure marketing. It’s fast, portable, and very reliable without any compromise on the images it puts out. Please tell me on wich planet do you live that you can always take pictures in good lighting conditions. I certainly give credence to the DPR observation, but I want more details. I actually get a bit emotional when I pick it up. The people should not get stuck to sensor sizes such a way that DPR is make it to be. The figures are..... quite dramatic for the imaging business so to say! The venerable Roger Cicala of LensRentals said this about the camera: What’s the quick take? It's not any different than Dr. Nick on The Simpsons yelling, "Inflammable means flammable? So pour a tall cold one and get ready to treat yourself, 2020 style. For mature female subjects they may find the skin detail likewise objectionable. Probably because it is the best AF available in this category (plus IBIS). Ultimately, 'full frame' has been the widely-used name for 35mm/135 for over twenty years. In the situation where women are the consumer of the photographs, they may find such detail objectionable. I've loved the look and feel of all Fuji's cameras. If you have skills and you can get clients, you can pay that system back in a month or a two. I'd love to own this camera, but my wife would kill me if I did. And with the 5-axis stabilization of the GFX and with the PDAF pixels on the entire sensor, I regained mobility and ease of work that I had lost with the medium format. So it's phone sensors, 1 inch sensors, MFT, APSC, FF and MF sensors. The user implied that the GFX100 was outseling the XT-3, which is partially true if you ONLY looked at Fujirumor's numbers. Plus, Fuji is giving Sigma and PhaseOne a run for their money (not to mention Hasselblad although I consider them to be a separate category even though they are also MF--Fuji is more towards the budget/enthusiast market, Hasselblad is marketed more towards the professional market). I have nothing against sony, I shoot weddings with 2 A9, and studio landscapes stuff with the GFX50 and 100. To achieve this level of resolution, the GFX 100 will first capture a the base shot, before shifting the sensor one pixel left, right and down for a total of four images. his does not mean it will not do a superb job for those who decide they need it or must have it. Look, it's Sigma 135 Art: here is Canon 85F1.4L IS : just google for "Techart GFX" or "Viltrox GFX". What follows are the headiest products of 2020, the ones photographers really want. But it is clearly way too much ask from professionals to use correct "35mm" term, as they can't even talk about "Full Frame" only in context of "Half Frame" (that is APS-C). We didn't find many wizards or scarecrows, but we did see plenty of lizards and landscape scenes along the Australian coast. I use a quality 4K display to look at my photos, sometimes even zooming a bit. It is sold out everywhere; Fuji says the demand for the camera far exceeded their expectations. And half-frame is 18x24mm in size... And APS-C is? If it can help me take photos where I usually cannot (faster and more accurate autofocus, better handling).See, with butterfly's you sometimes need to be real fast and flexible. I would think that the MF, maybe the 50mp one is designed to compete with FF. Could you please point out where we said the 5D S or SR "could not be used outside a studio environment?". The incredible dynamic of the image, the quality of the color ranges, and the great resolution have allowed me to edit very large formats with unmatched quality. That and the most obvious, value. Have a closer look at lithograph on the right... That additional precision isn't necessarily useful (both visual and mathematical assessment points to there being no benefit on this camera), but it's not true to claim they're 14-bit files. La Fujifilm GFX 100 con un recentissimo aggiornamento firmware, potrà ora catturare immagini dalle dimensioni gigantesche, parliamo infatti di un upgrade tale che –dai ~100 megapixel che già possiede– spingerà la fotocamera a far foto da ben 400 megapixel. Anyone who says otherwise is a contrarian. But its not important for most pictures that people actually take. Nikons FY2020 Q1 figures were bad but expected and forecasted by Nikon themselves. ^^ Whatever, dude. Especially if given product is "compared" with another with different (superior in this case) specifications, i.e larger sensor.Would you ever write that "this APC camera is the best camera we've ever reviewed (though its larger sensor DSLRs peers should out-perform it)..."?I think that in the best case your rhetoric speculation is just an obvious ascertainment, in the worse it may perceived as an implying comment of "something in this product is somehow shady", both undermining your conclusion.So you could omit the text in parenthesis or you could express your curiosity as for how it performs to an already scheduled review of its peer. 'Control dials feel small and cheap'....why oh why does Fuji have to make these great cameras that feel cheap? So re-trying the test or just portraying it as inclusive might have made more sense. Funny argumentation from FF users! One area where it cannot even be considered for this accolade is fps. Everything from the shape of its lightweight magnesium body, to the look and feel of its buttons and dials have been carefully selected to provide you with a seamless experience in using it to create images. Enter the Ulanzi ST-09, an adjustable mount that allows you to turn an Apple Watch into a live viewfinder on the rear of your iPhone. Because "the staff" is sooo anti Canon..... beyond the core.Any Canon milc in the future 'll be bashed & crowned with 'silver' to the most. Lately, the IQ of Leica Q2 during daylight convinced me of the high megapixel benefits, so the 100MP of GFX is definitely useful for many applications. The Sony sensor in the GFX100 has two selectable bit outputs, 14bit and 16bit. FWIW it looks like 26MP APS-C, 60MP FF and 100MP MF are the same sensor with different sizes (ie, the individual photosites are the same size) so they should have the same per "pixel" DR (all things being equal). Given that those cameras are selling in the $1800-2500 range, that $3000 50R really probably should come sooner rather than later. "Canon didn't go into the 5DSR blind about shutter shock as they developed a new mirror box designed to negate shutter shock from mirror slap. I'm sure I'm not alone saying I just cant pay 10k on a camera I would never see the value but I can push 5k as a keen enthusiast if it's a bit special. The 'Ergonomics and Handling' score was dented by the dial feel. Jim kasson just published today is result and theres little to no difference vs 14bit. doesnt matter, bank of japan to the rescue, they will simply buy all the fuji stocks! Ok, but how much better is the IQ compared to the Huawei P30 pro phone?99% of the people could not tell the difference in a good light photo. The lastest Sony dont have 15stop, this is marketing bull, even DPReview stated that it was the same as the A7Riii. We don't use "35mm" because it leads to sentences such as: "The X100 has a 23mm lens which is equivalent to 35mm in 35mm terms." I don't see the positivity the following statement has. We compare the Canon EOS R6, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5 and Sony a7 III. Fujifilm has stated that the intent with the GFX 100 is not to compete with FF; therefore, your "doomed as FF competition" is mute. fast lenses are used to create a thin depth of field, not to keep the iso down. Im a long ways from the GFX100. This is for gear heads, not image makers. As that is just an excuse that 35mm can't be used as you have whole language to go around the problems, or create them (what equivalence is doing). It looks like the camera was consistently just rearward and that could have been where the AF point was taking its cues from. Whenever I deliver the files to a postproduction studio, the colonists are always amazed by the quality of the movie files. I can't hardly believe it in context with all their other beautiful cameras. This is the first time I’ve seen a perfect Image Quality (for RAW) rating for a camera on DPReview.
