Kai Wong: Fujifilm GFX100 Final Firmware Review

Kai Wong posted his review of the Fujifilm GFX100 using final firmware. Below are excerpts from his review:

  • Ever felt 24MP was not enough?
  • Comments on it not being a typical size medium format sensor size
  • Medium format cameras are generally meant for tripod shooting, but not with a body like this
  • Probably more than you need if you have to ask
  • Like a 1DX, but with a much bigger sensor
  • Has the X-T3 goodness including its AF algorithm
  • Functions like an oversized X
  • Has features you wouldn’t expect from a high end camera
  • The soft skin affect smooths out skin well, but only works in JPG
  • Fujifilm is up there with Sony for face/eye detection
  • Kai had trouble with his face/eye detect on the GFX100, but the people he was with had zero issue
  • The feature worked accurately on the other cameras and it was fast
  • 4x bigger sensor than X-T3, but not 4x slower just a little slower
  • Focus points cover most of the frame
  • Shifting a lot of glass at once can get behind when a subject is moving towards you
  • Soft shutter like the X-H1
  • Easily get shake free shots at 1/125th of a second
  • Miss mode and shutter speed dial because it’s easier and quicker
  • Not many negatives
  • Bad rolling shutter with electronic shutter
  • Can easily push the image 4 stops and get nice images
  • They have done it well and not half assed
  • Video footage looks great
  • Video AF works great
  • Still has a step change when using auto ISO in video
  • IBIS works great for hand held video
  • Cameras with smaller sensors have worse rolling shutter
  • Quite a big of value for your money
  • Fujifilm went the extra mile to go above and beyond to give you something special, which other companies would not have done
  • Well done to all those lucky buggers that can afford one
