・The use of the Film Simulation function, which offers diverse color and tonal reproductions will be expanded. The new firmware will add the “CLASSIC Neg” mode, simulating color negative film traditionally chosen for snapshots, while also adding the “ETERNA Bleach Bypass” mode, which simulates the film processing technique of the same name.
ETERNA Bleach Bypass
・The “Color Chrome Blue,” which adds depth to color and tonal reproduction in blue skies and other primarily blue subjects, will be added to the GFX 100.
・The GFX 100 will deliver fast and highly-accurate phase-detection AF even in low-light conditions at -5EV.
・The firmware will improve Face / Eye AF performance. The face / eye detection accuracy and stability are improved when shooting multiple people, so as to make portrait photography easier than ever before.
・The Auto mode will be added to focus bracketing in all three models. Specify the starting and ending points and shooting interval, and the camera can automatically determine the number of frames and steps required.
・GFX100 will be able to output maximum 4K/29.97P*2 12bit RAW video data using HDMI to an ATOMOS NINJA V, in Apple ProRes RAW. New firmware for NINJA V will be released by ATOMOS. RAW video data gives maximum flexibility for exposure adjustment or color grading in post-production for professional videographers.
Also, simultaneous output of RAW with Film Simulation / F-Log / Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) is also available.
*1 GFX100 can record ProRes RAW only with ATOMOS NINJA V (as of June 30th 2020).
*2 Compatible with 4K (3840×2160) 29.97P/25P/24P/23.98P. Not compatible with FHD.
・Combining the GFX 100 with Gimbal / Drone that supports this function, will allow users to start / stop video recording, specify exposure settings for video (shutter speed, aperture value, ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation), and make manual focus adjustments.*3 Guilin FeiYu Electronic Technology Co. Ltd.*4, Shenzhen Gudsen Technology Co., Ltd.*5, SZ DJI Technology Co.,Ltd.*6 and ZHIYUN*7 (alphabetical order) have announced the intention of offering compatible products.
・The firmware will allow users to adjust exposure settings (shutter speed, aperture value, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation) for still images from a computer when using software that supports some tether-shooting functions.
・In all three models, more photo-editing applications will support the import of rating information, assigned in camera.
