Fujifilm Introducing the GFX100S and GF80mm Plus 3 Things You Might Have Missed

Fujifilm released their official introduction video for the GFX100S and GF80mm and it largely focuses on how portable the GFX100S is compared to the GFX100 and DSLR cameras. Below you can see some screen grabs of the comparisons and I listed a few of the key points covered:

  • S as in small/slender/smart
  • GFX100S is the love child of the X-T4 and GFX100
  • GFX100S Coming in March for $5,999.99
  • Proven 100MP performance
  • 425 AF points covering the whole sensor
  • Over 3 million AF pixels rated down to -5.5EV
  • Only 900g or less than 2lbs
  • 30% smaller than the GFX100
  • Little smaller than an APS-C DSLR
  • About the size of an ATMOS digital recorder except for the EVF bump
  • The new shutter allows them to get the compact size and weight without affecting the shutter rating
  • 6 stops of image stabilization in still and movies
  • PSAM drive dial instead of the traditional layout
  • Movie/Still selector switch on the top
  • Movie/Stills are completely independent
  • The battery is the same as X-T4 and gives you 450-460 shots
  • No vertical grip, but there is a metal grip with Arca-swiss
  • C1-C6 for custom setups that can get separate names
  • Cinema 4k up to 29.97 in 10-bit plus ProRes RAW on an external
  • Almost 2hrs of recording time in 4k at 10-bit
  • EVF is fixed and the same as the X-T4 with high refresh rates and almost no flicker
  • LCD goes 45 degrees down and 45 degrees to the right, but there is an extra hinge to pull the LCD away from the body so the VF doesn’t get in your way
  • New film simulation nostalgic negative that is based on the look of color film photography from the 1970’s and it eventually was called America New Color
  • Film simulations are great for getting out of your RAW workflow
  • The GF80mm f/1.7 is the 9th prime lens for the GFX and f/1.7 is unheard of in large format photography
  • GF110mm f/2 is longer and heavier than the GF80mm f/1.7 but they have the same 77mm filter thread
  • GF80mm f/1.7 will be available in March for $2,299.95

DPReview also released a short video covering 3 things you may have missed about the GFX100S and there are a few screenshots below so you don’t have to pause the video.

  • DPR has the only GFX100S in North America and it’s going back today
  • Number one is the impressive size of the GFX100S that is actually smaller than a Canon 5D SR while being not much larger than a Sony a7RIV
  • Number two is how ludicrously good the IBIS system in the GFX100S is because you can shoot at 1/30th of a second shots holding the camera with one hand over your head
  • Number three is the new film simulation nostalgic neg and how simulations in general help simplify your life so you don’t have to go home and edit after working
  • The GFX100S is a very accessible camera that is opening the door wider for photographers to move to medium format
