TOP OF THE WORLD The new Fujifilm GFX100S sets new standards for large-sensor filmmaking, helping to create films with a look all of their own

“There’s just a certain look and feel to the images, giving theman iconic charmthat oozes quality”

Fujifilm also offers a growing range of 12 native AF GF lenses – three zooms and nine primes, plus a 1.4x converter. The latest star in the lens range is the GF80mm f/1.7 RWR, which gives incredibly shallow depth-of-field and beautiful bokeh when used wide open. And the GF45-100mm f/4 R LMOISWR lens is a popular all-round zoom. All the lenses have traditional iris rings and the speed (and therefore feel) of their focusingmotors can be customised for a more organic experience. There is also the benefit of AF when you want it. In a camera that produces such a unique, big-screen look, these AF lenses can be just a little too sharp. Softening the edges with one of the huge range of diffusion filters on the market works really well, especially when combined with a complementary grade setting or Film Simulationmode applied in-camera. With the GFX100S and Fujifilm lenses, you have the tools to create your best-ever work, giving you a creative edge at a price that is not out of this world.

of Fujifilm’s classic film emulsions, such as Eterna, Velvia, Provia and Acros, giving an evocative or nostalgic look straight out of camera. These can be customised to deliver a look that’s as unique as your vision. There is also support for 10-bit F-Log or Hybrid Log Gamma in the Rec. 2100 colour space for HDR. Where the compact GFX100S really scores over its cinema camera counterparts is in the latest technology designed to help image makers’ lives easier. There is in-body image stabilisation, providing up to six stops of five-axis stabilisation. Shooting in 4K from such a large sensor makes focusing critical, especially at wide apertures, and the GFX100S delivers the latest phase detection AF system, with an advanced Face and Eye Detection algorithm. You can even select which eye to focus on, and the rear touchscreen or focus lever lets you select and track one face, even in a crowd. There is continuous AF tracking for moving subjects, too. But if you wish to stick withmanual focus, then focus peaking helps confirmwhen everything is sharp. When it comes to the look of a finished film, lens choice is vital. The Fujifilm system scores here, as well, thanks to the GMount’s large, 65mmdiameter. A range of adapters allows cinematographers to fit some of the most unique, classic-look LPL or PLmount lenses. If you want to use Cooke or Arri glass, you can!

FLICK OF THE SWITCH A slider changes the camera from stills to movie mode, rather than having to dig through menus. There are also six custom settings
