Fujifilm has prepared several new digital cameras for the release offered in different price segments and is aimed at different user audiences.
Fujifilm GFX 100S
One of the new products is the Fujifilm GFX 100S medium format camera. This is a smaller and more affordable version of the GFX 100 released in 2019 and was offered for $9,999.95. The new camera received a 102-megapixel sensor measuring 43.8 × 32.9 mm, 100% covered with phase-detection autofocus sensors.
The novelty has a 30% smaller body, and the camera’s weight has decreased by 500 g. However, the reduction has led to some simplifications. For example, the electronic viewfinder is now non-replaceable, there is no way to use the vertical battery grip. Built-in optical image stabilization is also smaller and lighter, although Fujifilm claims its performance has even improved over the GFX 100 and now offers up to 6 stops of exposure compensation. This was achieved through the use of an improved gyrosensor and optimized software algorithms.
The controls are represented by the traditional PASM ring for SLR cameras and virtual dials displayed on a 1.8-inch monochrome display on the top panel of the case. The device has two slots for SD UHS-II memory cards, two 3.5 mm audio jacks for connecting headphones and a microphone, a 2.5 mm jack for external control, USB-C and Micro HDMI ports.
