Designed as a smaller counterpart to 2019’s GFX 100, the new camera measures roughly 30 percent smaller and 500g ligther than its predecessor, and also comes at a much more discounted price too: the original model came with a price tag of $10,000 USD, while the current model is priced more moderately at $6,000.
Despite the much more accessible price point, the GFX 100S retains the same 102-megapixel 43.8 x 32.9mm medium format sensor, complete with 100 percent phase-detection autofocus coverage. A new gyro sensor and updated algorithms make the in-body image stabilization system not only smaller and lighter than before but also more powerful, offering up to six stops of stabilization for most of Fujifilm’s lenses.
As for the camera’s surrounding features, it now utilizes a conventional dial like most DSLRs, working in tandem with virtual dials on a 1.8-inch monochrome display on the top side of the body. It supports both USB-C and Micro HDMI connectivity, carries two UHS-II SD card slots, two 3.5mm audio sockets for your headphones and microphone, and also a 2.5mm remote release port.
For those interested, Fujifilm’s new GFX 100S medium format camera will be available in March.
