More pictures of the Fujifilm GFX XΩ modular medium format mirrorless camera prototype


 

Some additional pictures of the Fujifilm GFX XΩ modular medium format mirrorless camera prototype that was presented during the recent X Summit. This specific design never reached production because the shutter mechanism was too large:

"Here are the three main modules - a grip component, the main body of the camera, and a removable EVF. The spirit of the Omega lives on in the design of the GFX 50S's viewfinder, which can be removed to make a slightly smaller, lighter camera.

The main reason why this even more modular design never saw it to production is simple - the shutter mechanism for such a large sensor was simply too large for the concept. That doesn't mean we'll never see a modular GFX, but we might have to wait for global shutters to become a practical reality first."
