Fujifilm GFX 100 Review

Imaging-Resource finished their review of the Fujifilm GFX 100.

The Fujifilm GFX 100 at a glance;

  • 102MP 43.8 x 32.9mm BSI CMOS Sensor
  • X-Processor 4 Image Processor
  • Removable 5.76m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 3.2" 2.36m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD

Pros;

  • Outstanding image quality
  • 16-bit raw files (in single-shot mode)
  • Good high ISO performance
  • Excellent dynamic range
  • 5-axis in-body image stabilization is very good
  • Hybrid AF system with phase-detect is fast, precise & works well for C-AF
  • Much better AF performance than previous GFX models
  • Weather-sealed magnesium alloy body
  • Dual UHS-II SD card slots
  • Large, crisp EVF with improved performance over earlier GFX models
  • Fast burst shooting for its class
  • Excellent video quality
  • 4K video up to 30p
  • Lots of advanced video features
  • Good battery life
  • Supports USB charging and USB Power Delivery

Cons;

  • 5fps continuous shooting limits usability for sports/action
  • Bit depth drops to 14 bits for continuous shooting modes
  • High ISOs are good for 100MP MF sensor, but not industry-leading
  • Vertical grip feels shallow, uncontoured and not covered in grip material
  • Buffer depths are fairly shallow
  • Flash sync limited to 1/125s
  • GF lens lineup still pretty limited, especially with telephoto options
  • $10,000 is a good value for a medium-format camera, but expensive compared to potentially competing flagship DSLRs

Conclusion;

The Fuji GFX 100 is indeed a very surprising camera in multiple ways. With its 100MP medium-format sensor, it offers absolutely outstanding image quality performance, making it a wonderful camera for those who need the ultimate in quality and resolution from their photographs. However, it's more than just a high-res camera. From its tall, gripped body design, its phase-detect AF system, effective IBIS, burst capabilities (within reason) and its well-rounded video features, the GFX 100 is a high-res camera that's also highly versatile.

However, despite its improved autofocus and better performance over previous GFX models, if you shoot lots of wildlife, sports or other action subjects, the GFX 100 isn't really the most appropriate camera for those endeavors. The native GF lens lineup is still rather limited, especially for telephoto and supertelephoto options. The GFX 100's top 5fps burst rate is rather paltry compared to most other high-end, modern (albeit smaller-sensor) cameras on the market. And its $10,000 price tag is another major consideration. Yes, the GFX 100 is significantly more affordable than traditional medium-format cameras, but if you need greater speed, better autofocus, more lens options and don't necessarily need 100MP worth of image data, then you're camera budget is likely better spent on something else.
