GFX100S: "More than Full Frame" x Ji Guo

When I got GFX100S on my hand for the first time, the whole volume felt like a 35mm format full-frame camera, but it was equipped with the 102 megapixel backlight- type CMOS sensor of GFX100.

When shooting, the whole process from focusing to pressing the shutter is the same as GFX100. There is no difference between GFX100 and GFX100. The same image processor and focus module should be used. With the vertical handle removed because of the reduced size, the vertical shutter on the lower part of the camera and several function keys used for vertical shots have also been removed. Other buttons and features are consistent with GFX100. Maintains the three-way flip screen and LCD shoulder screen. EVF with GFX100 using the same look and feel, don’t know whether to GFX100 same electronic viewfinder, but EVF part due to the fuselage volume shrinking, with the fuselage in harmony for an organic whole so you can’t change, also with the same GFX100 menu operation, so the training of the saved time to adapt to the new machine, from the left shoulder GFX100 multifunctional rotary into SLR often the shooting model itself, can quickly switch shooting model, it is more convenient to use.

The anti-shake part is as good as GFX100. In the trial, GFX100 has a new firmware that increases the number of pixels to 400 million through pixel displacement technology. As it happens, the folks at Fujifilm also sent in the latest GFX100S firmware, which they thought would have 400 million features, but didn’t. Expect to see this feature on the market as well.

The battery of GFX100S uses a large capacity of NP-W235 like x-T4, and the main parameters of the battery are 2200mAh and 16Wh. Due to the purchase of X-T4 a few days ago, the battery can be universal.

GFX100S ‘positioning is obviously not a photographic novice. Most of the people who buy this machine are like my friends: they have a complete set of 35mm format full- frame camera to add a full range of cost-effective medium frame and high pixel model options. As far as the current picture market is concerned, GFX100S is a choice with a very balanced picture quality and volume.

The size and weight are reduced to 35mm camera, DJI M600 mounted on GFX100S for aerial photography has a longer endurance than other medium format frames, and the pixels are more detailed than other medium format frames.

The small size of the GFX100S and its flip screen and face-recognition focus make it easy to find targets in the bustling crowd when photographing Tibetans praying at the Temple. The light ratio of the plateau region is very large, which is also a test of the camera’s tolerance. Since GFX100S has not been released, RAF files have no solution. JPG files alone can push the dark side 2-3 stop, which is enough for this subject. Thanks to the newly designed five-axis anti-shake module, handheld shots in low light are possible, resulting in excellent imaging and rich detail.

The medium format without the cameras have more than GFX100 miniaturization of body size, on the one hand, the new IBIS based on X-S10 five axis stabilization structure and format of sensor and the new design for five axis stabilization module, exterior near GFX 50S at the same time, although the model is also a kind of SLR, but no battery grip integration design, more light and portable.

As early as March 1968, Fuji released a series of 120 medium frame cameras with 6×9 specifications, the GW690 II, GW690 III, GSW690, GSW 690II, GSW 690III, G617, GA645, GX680, GF670 and other medium frame cameras created the glorious history of Fujifilm. Since entering the digital age, from the 2017 digital medium frame camera GFX50s (small volume 50 million pixels) to GFX100 (large volume 100 million pixels) and GFX100S (small volume 100 million pixels) to the current most portable 100 million medium frame. In recent years, the high-pixel 135mm full-frame machine has been favored by users (probably price is a big factor). However, in the medium format, such high pixels seem to be a natural thing to carry. With the increasing popularity of non-retractable painting, more and more manufacturers have started to dabble in the medium format, such as Hasselblad, Pentax, Leica… In any case, the main selling point of Medium painting is that the sensor is large, and the depiction of the atmosphere of the scene is more shocking than 135… Fujifilm’s GFX100S does exactly that and has surpassed the GFX50S.
