Fujifilm’sGFXmediumformat systemhasanewflagship, the GFX100. It boasts a 102-megapixel resolution with a Bayer patternCMOS sensorwith a back-side illuminated (BSI) design. It features 3.76 million phase detection pixels across the surface, with approx 100% coverage to give fast and accurate AF, regardless of where the subject is within the frame. Autofocus, with the new phase detect system and using anAF algorithmadopted from the X-T3 andX-T30 models, is said to be twice as fast as current GFXmodels, plus there is improved continuous AF and tracking AF is available, too. The gain in AF speed is seen especially with GFX prime lenses. The GFX100 is the first medium format camera with five-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), giving a claimed benefit of up to 5.5EV, enabling ultra-high resolution handheld shooting. Vibration is also reduced by the shutter unit, which is suspended by four springs to minimise shock. The deep-bodied camera can accept two batteries, giving an approximately 800-frame capacity while the body itself is dust and weather sealed at 95 locations across the body. The Fujifilm GFX100 will retail for £9999 for body only and is on sale from late June. There is a detailed first look of this impressive camera in this issue.
