The new Fujifilm GFX 100MP medium format camera to be announced on May 23rd

FujiAddict reports that the Fujifilm GFX 100MP medium format camera will be officially announced on May 23rd and shipment is expected to start at the beginning of June. The GFX 100 concept was first introduced during the 2018 Photokina show. Here is what we know so far about the new Fujifilm medium format camera:

  • The smooth rubber covering will be replaced with texture on the shipping camera
  • Feels like a Nikon D5 or Canon EOS-1DX II with a fast prime attached
  • The only dial on top left has 3 positions for Stills/Movie/Multi-Exposure
  • The center button on the top is the drive button
  • The EVF will have X-H1 type performance (which is much better than the GFX50S)
  • The EVF is removable like the GFX50S and you can use them interchangeably on the GFX100
  • The focus mode button is now on the left instead of right
  • Playback is now on the lower right of the screen
  • No 4-way controller
  • OLED ribbon display on the back under the LCD, but not active on the prototype it shows key camera settings but isn’t touch sensitive
  • There is still a bulge in the back for the sensor, but it’s smaller since the battery was relocated to the grip
  •  Tilt/touch/rear display like GFX
  • Same Fujifilm NP-T125 battery as the GFX
  • Should get 400 shots per battery so 800 shots with both batteries charged
  • Still using dual SD cards, but a future GFX camera might use an XQD/CFexpress card
  • I/O microphone and headphone jacks, HDMI, USB 3.0 Type C, PC Socket on the side
  • 4k 30p
  • 4:2:0 video internal and 10-bit 4:2:2 external via HDMI
  • They could shoot sharp photos at 1/20s with the GF45mm f/2.8 attached and acceptably sharp at 1/6s.
  • Might support sensor shifting high-resolution mode in the future via a firmware update
  • AF speed appears very good and improved over the original GFX 50S
  • Shutter button feels very Nikon or Canon DSLR camera like
  • Coming late spring or early summer for around 10k
