Several years ago, Fujifilm decided to dive into the medium format camera market by launching the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The company has since released new models and successors since, but this could possibly be the company’s biggest update to yet. Fujifilm has announced a new mirrorless camera in the form of the GFX100.
This will be part of the GFX medium format lineup (although we’re not sure if this will replace the GFX 50 series or it will exist alongside it), but it will be a camera with a whopping 102MP sensor. Given the megapixel count, there is a very good chance that this camera is aimed more at professionals who have the need for such a camera, rather than your average photographer or enthusiast.
In addition to its 102MP sensor, the GFX100 will also sport a back-side illuminated sensor that will allow users to increase the ISO without necessarily adding more noise. It will also feature full-coverage phase-detection autofocus, subject tracking, and face/eye detection. There is also in-body image stabilization, a tilting touch-screen display on the back support for dual memory cards and dual batteries, and also the ability to shoot 4K video at 30fps (this is clearly not aimed at videographers).
As expected with a camera with such impressive specs, the GFX100 will not come cheap as Fujifilm has priced it at $10,000 body-only.
