An interview from the 2023 IBC Show in Amsterdam with Filmmaker Jim Marks at the Fujifilm Stand. At the show Fujifilm announced the launch of the “FUJIFILM GFX100 II”. It will be the latest addition to the GFX Series of mirrorless digital cameras incorporating the large-format image sensor approximately 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full-frame sensor.
The GFX100 II features the newly-developed 102MP high-speed image sensor “GFX 102MP CMOS II HS” and the high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 5” to deliver up to double the signal readout speed compared to the current model. It is a new flagship model that delivers the highest burst-shooting, AF and video performance in the history of GFX Series.
The GFX100 II boasts superior image quality thanks to the use of the large format sensor. It is the first GFX Series mirrorless digital camera that features the AI-based subject-detection AF, developed with Deep Learning technology, as well as the latest predictive AF algorithm. The burst mode performance has also been enhanced from the current model to 8.0 frames per second and the stabilization performance has been improved to eight-stop five-axis to broaden the scope of genres for the GFX Series from fashion, commercial and landscape categories to sports and news photography, where high-speed performance is essential.
The use of the new sensor has also led to significant enhancement of video recording capability. The GFX100 II is the first GFX Series camera that supports 8K/30P video, and can also record 4K/60P 4:2:2 10-bit video internally. Furthermore, it offers the new “Video Format” modes to enable video recording in multiple formats including Premista, 35mm, and anamorphic (35mm) with the mount adapter. Video recording in a variety of situations is catered to, thanks to the enhanced sensor readout speed and the tracking AF, which automatically tracks a subject to keep it in focus.
The camera body is equipped with an Ethernet port as well as HDMI Type A and USB-C terminals to broaden connectivity with external devices significantly for diverse peripheral combinations. In addition, the high-magnification, high-definition EVF that ensures high visibility and the functional beauty of the body design support a comfortable shooting experience for professional photographers and filmmakers.
