The Fujifilm GFX100 is such a novel digital camera that it’s actually not truthful to match it to the brand new Sony a7RIV that was introduced the opposite day. Yes the brand new 61MP sensor is spectacular and sure it does put the GFX50 line in a tough place, however it’s nothing just like the Fujifilm GFX100. To be truthful I believe the GFX50 line of cameras must come right down to across the $2-3k worth level to stay viable for almost all of photographers when taking into account the Sony a7RIV, however I don’t assume it is going to take them lengthy to drive the costs down additional. The “Medium Format look” can solely promote so many cameras earlier than efficiency issues begin to turn out to be a figuring out issue that Fujifilm must tackle. Maybe we are going to see a GFX50S Mark II with PDAF quickly. Hasselblad is in a lot worse form since their inexpensive line of medium format cameras is now being sandwiched between extra inexpensive cameras that may outperform the X1D with cheaper glass. I’ve extra ideas on this subject however will save them for a future publish.
That all being stated I wished to show the silly quantity of decision and element that the GFX100 can seize. Above is a handheld picture of the total moon taken the opposite day on the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 with the GF110mm(round 90mm) at f/2. I cropped the moon from the seize as tightly as potential ending up with round 400 pixels on the lengthy edge. The quantity of element retained is fairly loopy in my view and goes properly past what a 50-60MP digital camera can seize. With the GFX100’s capability to crop you would take one picture and share tons of of crops from it with out anybody noticing, because of the quantity of element the digital camera captures.
