Cinema5D got an inside look at the production of the Fujifilm GFX100 and you can view part one here. Part two takes place in the spring of 2019 with them receiving a prototype camera. Below are excerpts:
Hasselblad announced the Hasselblad X1D II 50C with a new zoom the Hasselblad XCD 35-75mm F3.5-4.5 in an effort to overtake Fujifilm at a very attractive price point, but it might be too little too later. Even if Hasselblad has fixed all of the issues that the original X1D had, the GFX has already dominated the medium format market, but Hasselblad has leaf shutter lenses that Fujifilm does not yet.
Introducing the X1D II 50C, XCD 35-75 zoom lens, Phocus Mobile 2, and revealing details of the upcoming CFV II 50C digital back and 907X camera body.
Dpreview posted High ISO test images of GFX100 camera with others. The image above you see is taken at base ISO, even at base ISO the details captured via GFX100 isn’t so clear and look bit hazy.When people started complaining about the image quality of the camera. Dpreview team said ” After further analysis we’ve discovered our GFX100 shots are fractionally misfocused,” So we don’t have to blame camera this time. We will be waiting for a fresh set of test images taken from production line camera without any issues.

Sony’s image sensor business is a behemoth. Back in January 2016, I told you that Sony would use its sensor production to rule the digital imaging world. Now, it’s getting so big that one of Sony’s large investors wants to see its image sensor business spun off into a separate entity.
