ALPA introduces the extraordinary ALPA XO line, which supports the new generation of medium format cameras for still and moving images. The first series of products will include the ALPA XO exoskeleton, top handle and professional adapter for PL and LPL cine lenses. Of course, everything will be modular and flexible in ALPA style.
DPReview got a look at Fujifilm’s pre-production assembly line where the camera is largely put together by hand. Not much to learn here, but some interesting photos of the camera exploded and details about how it was put together. You can view the full article here or the bullet points below.
Camerasize just added the Fujifilm GFX100 to their comparison tool and the Fujiflim dwarfs the Nikon D850 in size. Similarly, the Nikon D850 weighs in at 2.01 lb, while the GFX100 comes in at 3.08 lb. You can view the above comparison here.
The Fujifilm GFX100 has been officially announced and I am just finishing going through all the content that came out tonight and there are some very interesting details that haven’t been widely disseminated. First is that the GFX100 down samples 11k footage to create it’s 4k 4:2:2 10-bit video, so maybe we will see 11k downsampled to 8k in the not too distant future. The same video that talks about the 11k downsampling also shows off the 5.5 stop of IBIS that the GFX 100 is capable of while filming a mock interview with the GF 110mm and it was pretty rock solid hand held.

Nokishita managed to download some Fujifilm GFX100 product photos after finding an active productviews_config.js file. The JPG files linked to in the file are now active grey images so it looks like Fujifilm is getting ready to launch the GFX100 website after midnight tonight. There might be some more slip-ups between now and then so stay tuned and join us for the launch.
FujiAddict was the first to release a Fujifilm GFX50S printable and when printed properly it matched the Fujifilm GFX50S almost to the millimeter. Now I am releasing the first Printable Fujifilm GFX100. The camera just barely fits on a 10×8 inch piece of paper and it’s looking like I will need a new camera bag because the camera is quite tall compared to the GFX50S. The one issue I have had with being mirrorless for so many years is that as the bodies get bigger they do not fit well in my compact bags.
