FUJIFILM Corporation has announced the development of a 100+ megapixel medium format camera for its GFX system. The camera, which will sit alongside the GFX 50S and GFX 50R, will be aimed at photographers who demand exceptional image quality for high-end commercial, advertising, and fine art photography.
The new GFX model will use a 102 megapixel CMOS sensor measuring 43.8×32.9mm. This will be supported by an X-Processor 4 imaging engine and FUJINON GF lenses, which are designed to resolve images beyond 100 megapixel resolutions. The result will yield a level of imaging performance that defies current medium format possibilities.
The camera will feature technologies never seen before on a medium format camera, such as phase detection AF pixels across 100% of the imaging sensor for improved focus tracking and accuracy. This will also be the first medium format camera to feature in-body image stabilization (IBIS), to help photographers maximize the clarity provided by such a high resolution when shooting handheld.
Videographers are catered for too, with 4K/30P 10-bit recording – another first for a mirrorless medium format camera. The use of such a large sensor enables shallower depth-of-field, reproduction of a broader range of tones and advanced sensitivity characteristics – all of which lends a unique look and feel to video footage.
The new GFX camera body will be inspired by much from the successful GFX 50S, as well as cameras in the X Series, and will feature a built-in vertical shooting grip, with duplicate controls that make it easier to shoot in an upright position.
