Refusing to sacrifice performance for portability has allowed Fujifilm to create 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 camera that weighs just 900g (1.9lb). Similar in size to most full-frame cameras, but beautifully engineered and designed to house a 102MP sensor – that is 1.7 times larger than a full-frame sensor – GFX100S also offers up to 6-stops of five-axis in-body image stabilization (IBIS), incredibly fast and accurate autofocus, and world-renowned color reproduction to help image makers push the limits of their creativity.
Fujifilm’s rich history in making large format cameras and film has paved the way to make ultra-high resolution cameras like GFX100S a reality. It’s not just that Fujifilm has packed 102MP of resolution into a 43.8×32.9mm imaging sensor, but all their legacy in color science and film technology as well, this is what makes all the difference.
Resolving power is nothing without control and X-Processor 4 is the perfect engine to reliably deliver stunning, high-quality images time and time again. Amazingly, it does all of this at blazingly fast, while applying decades of experience in color knowhow to every image. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if GFX100S is faithfully reproducing colors or applying Film Simulations, to deliver a unique view of a scene, because it will always deliver an image in a way that will enhance your creative process.
Engineered to keep pace with 100MP+ imaging sensors, G Mount lenses are optimized to provide a lifetime of service. With a short flange focal distance, which helps keep GFX system cameras compact, G Mount lenses are designed to prevent peripheral light falloff. When combined with a large CMOS imaging sensor, this approach results in stunning edge-to-edge sharpness.
Designed to work in harmony with GFX100S, the camera’s redesigned shutter unit is 15% lighter than the one found in the original GFX100, but its smaller size doesn’t compromise its performance in any way. In fact, durability and performance is almost assured, since it’s guaranteed to reach over 150,000 actuations over its lifetime. Five shutter types are also available, including a silent electronic shutter, so it doesn’t matter if it’s at a quiet wedding or an ear-splitting concert, image makers everywhere can choose the option that makes the best of the conditions they are working with.
Ultra-high resolution images need all the help they can get when it comes to eliminating unintended vibrations, since even the slightest movement can be seen in the image’s finest details. This is why GFX100S’s shutter unit is equipped with a dedicated shock absorber. Not only does it provide a quicker shutter response to enhance performance, it also minimizes any hint of shutter shock, which means those perfect moments will always be within your grasp, vibration reduced.
GFX100S features a redesigned, powerful in-body image stabilization (IBIS) system that is 20% smaller and 10% lighter than the version found in the GFX100. Amazingly, despite this reduciton in size and weight, it is still able to provide up to six stops of five-axis stabilization, which dramatically broadens the possibilities for image-makers everywhere to confidently create handheld images in a multitude of circumstances and a variety of lighting conditions.
