This year seems like it’s shaping up to be the second wave of megapixel wars from the major manufacturers. In this review, we’ll take a look at the 102-megapixel Fujifilm GFX 100S medium format mirrorless camera and what it has been like to work with over the last month.
The Fuji GFX 100S is like a medium format X-H1, with very capable filmmaking abilities. I had a hands-on at FotoMax in Berlin, to find out whether Sony should be worried.
Apparently sales of the GFX 100S at $6000 have been very positive so far, and people have snapped up the chance to get the world’s best sensor in a smaller body at a much smaller price than the GFX 100. Even at $10k, some considered the big brother a bargain compared to similarly spec medium format cameras.
There’s no doubt that there has never been a camera as small as the GFX 100S with as large a sensor as this and 10bit 4K video. It really does feel significantly smaller and lighter than the original GFX 100. The same 10bit codec and video options are present.
The in-hand feel of the GFX 100S is comfortable but cheap feeling.
Sony has announced their Sony’s newest huge CMOS sensor, the Sony IMX661 with a global shutter and whopping 127.68-megapixel resolution. It’s said to be both the world’s highest-resolution and the world’s physically largest global shutter CMOS sensor with a diagonal measurement of 56.73mm – for comparison, your typical “full-frame” sensor is around 43.2mm. But just […]
Fujifilm’s medium format range doesn’t have a huge selection of lenses, but it does have some utterly superb glass never the less. Their latest release has turned a few heads, but how good is it for portraiture?
Fujifilm revolutionized the world of medium format a few years ago by introducing a line of cameras and lenses that offered all the benefits of the larger sensor size at prices that significantly undercut traditional medium format prices and even competed with upper-level full frame prices. The company is showing no sign of stopping, with more cameras and lenses to come next week, along with new X Series gear as well.
Well, this is an odd one. Instead of continuing their full-frame lineup and adding to their existing range of 11mm, 15mm, 45mm and 150mm lenses, it appears that lens manufacturer IRIX has decided to take a break and has chosen to pursue medium format. A new teaser video was posted to the Irix YouTube channel, […]
There are areas of photography that are revered by many photographers, two of them are medium format and Polaroid. However, combining the two has become tremendously expensive in recent years. Perhaps now there’s a solution.
I still shoot quite a bit of film when the opportunity allows, and when I do, I still primarily tend to reach for a 35mm. It’s not that it’s the best, or even just the best suited to what I want to shoot, but it’s convenient. The 35mm film SLRs I use the most are […]
