Created with the philosophy of mobility and portability, the Fujifilm GFX100S redefines what a medium format camera is meant to be. Refusing to sacrifice performance for portability, FUJIFILM has created one of the most compact, high-performance large format cameras in the world. It is more advanced than any GFX System camera to date and combines the best of FUJIFILM’s imaging technology into a body that weighs just 900g.
Appealing to both photo and video needs, the GFX100S is positioned to provide creatives with the unique opportunity to embrace large format image-making. The 102MP 44 x 33mm BSI CMOS sensor, offers both ultra-high resolution coveted by stills photographers as well impressive 4K video recording options. Paired with the powerful X-Processor 4 the GFX100S can output 16-bit raw imagery with a broad dynamic range (via HDMI). Images are further characterised by low noise levels with the BSI design of the sensor contributing to high clarity and accurate colour rendering when working in a variety of lighting conditions up to ISO 12800.
In terms of video, DCI and UHD 4K video recording is possible at 4:2:0 10-bit internally, 4:2:2 10-bit via HDMI, or raw 12-bit if recording externally, and an F-log gamma setting can also be used for more advanced colour grading during post-production. Beyond high-resolution shooting, the unique sensor design also incorporates a sophisticated hybrid AF system that features /p>
This camera is further rounded out by a durable construction, in-body 5-axis image stabilization up to 6-stops, and an apt hybrid autofocus system with 425 selectable phase-detection points covering nearly the entire frame. Precise face and eye-detection modes make this camera even more accessible and applicable for a variety of shooting needs.
Powered by FUJIFILM’s high-performance quad-core X-Processor 4 CPU, GFX100S utilises its 102MP, back-illuminated large format CMOS sensor to deliver images with stunning quality. Compared to smaller, lower-resolution sensors commonly found in traditional full-frame DSLR and mirrorless cameras, GFX100S’ imaging sensor is approximately 1.7 times larger and is enhanced to be incredibly sensitive to light. This provides it with a significant advantage over smaller sensors when it comes to producing images with incredibly shallow depth of field, fantastic dynamic range, faithful colour reproduction, and outstanding high-ISO performance.
FUJIFILM’s expertise in colour science is legendary among image-makers. For more than 86 years, FUJIFILM has been responsible for some of the world’s most iconic photographs and movies. GFX100S gives users access to a wealth of experience via the touch of a button, powered by one of the world’s most widely acclaimed digital colour processing engines.
With a choice of 19 exclusive FUJIFILM Film Simulation modes, it is easy to achieve fantastic colour straight out of the camera. GFX100S includes a new Film Simulation mode to explore - Nostalgic Neg. Reminiscent of American New Colour Photography, which emerged in the 1970s, Nostalgic Neg continues this movement by expanding the boundaries of photographic creativity through the purposeful use of colour. Its unique tonality adds an amber tone to highlights for a softer look and boosts saturations to shadows, while preserving details, to give a lyrical feel to images.
At 900g and measuring 15cm wide, 10.4cm tall, and 8.7cm deep, GFX100S’ compact body is comparable in size to many full-frame cameras. Despite the compact size, it packs a high performance IBIS and a 102MP imaging sensor that is almost twice the physical size of a typical full-frame sensor.
The GFX100S features a redesigned shutter unit and a brand-new IBIS unit, while powered by a smaller yet efficient lithium-ion battery. This results in a camera body that is approximately 6cm shorter and 500g lighter than the GFX100, while able to maintain the same level of stills and video performance. The reduced size of GFX100S is well-balanced by a highly robust grip, with a comfortable in-hand feel, which makes it exceptionally easy to hold for extended periods of time.
The camera features a 3.2-inch LCD display on the rear and a 1.8-inch sub LCD monitor on its top plate, which can be customised to show key EXIF settings like shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation. It can also display the status of key functions or available capacity on storage media. The 3.2-inch, touch-capable LCD display is a 2.36-million-dot monitor with 100% coverage that can be tilted in three directions (90° upward, 45° downward, and 60° rightward).
Dust- and Moisture-Resistant Magnesium-Alloy Body
GFX100S is made to operate in temperatures as low as -10°C and is dust- and moisture-resistant. It is also constructed with a magnesium alloy casing that is purposely denser around the lens mount by 1mm compared to GFX100, which provides added support for larger G Mount lenses.
GFX100S features controls that are familiar to both new and existing GFX System photographers. For example, a PASM dial, with six programmable custom options, provides quick and direct access to frequently used settings, while the switch, conveniently located next to the mode dial, allows users to quickly change between still and movie mode. An ergonomic update to the Focus Lever also makes choosing a focus point easy and smooth.
Unlike many other large format and medium format cameras, on-sensor phase detection pixels cover almost 100% of GFX100S’ imaging sensor, unlocking a level of autofocus performance never before seen in large format digital photography. This means the camera can acquire focus in as little as 0.18 seconds, even in luminance levels as low as -5.5EV3, making it versatile, accurate and incredibly fast. Powered by X-Processor 4, the camera is also able to efficiently make use of an updated focus tracking algorithm to keep subjects in focus when using the Tracking AF and Face/ Eye AF functions.
GFX100S features a newly designed In-Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) system, which dramatically broadens the capability of photographers to confidently create handheld images.
Compared to the unit found in FUJIFILM GFX100, the IBIS mechanism inside of GFX100S is 20% smaller and 10% lighter. Despite the smaller size, the five-axis system provides 6-stops of CIPA-rated image stabilisation, a 0.5-stop improvement over GFX100.
GFX100S is capable of recording large-format cinematic 4K/30p movies that feature incredibly shallow depth-of-field, impressive high-ISO performance, wide tonal gradation, and unmatched overall image quality. Footage can be recorded at bit rates of 400Mbps at different quality levels, from 10-bit 4:2:0 F-log internally to an SD card, to 12-bit 4:2:2 ProRes RAW through the HDMI port.
In addition to being able to record 4k footage in a 16:9 aspect ratio, GFX100S supports a 17:9 aspect ratio, frequently used in digital cinemas. The most commonly used compression codecs, like H.264 and H.265 are also available. Additionally, professional standards, like the REC.2100 supported Hybrid Gamma Log (HLG), or F-Log can be selected for complete creative control with more flexibility in post-production.
For colour-grading heavy workflows, GFX100S can also record 4K/30P footage in 12-bit RAW, via HDMI, directly to an Atomos Ninja V Recording Monitor to later be output as ProRes RAW. This allows users to make post-product decisions around refining images. Users can also achieve simultaneous output of RAW footage and footage in FLog or Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) with a Film Simulation mode.
