GFX 100 combines decades of experience, knowledge, and research into a mirrorless large format camera that redefines the boundaries and limitations of how photographers and filmmakers creatively express themselves. By raising the bar in large format auto-focus performance, being one of the first large format systems to have in-body stabilization and providing filmmakers with a way to push the limits of wide format 4K/30p motion capture, GFX 100 is not only reshaping how images are being made, but it is also redefining large format for the world’s next generation of image makers.

FUJIFILM G Mount
Despite featuring a sensor which is 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full frame sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions (156.2mm (W) x 163.6mm (H) x 102.9mm (D), measuring 48.9mm at the thinnest part) and weight (approx. 1400g including two batteries, memory card and EVF).
Sensor / Processor / Mount
The FUJIFILM GFX 100 pairs a newly-developed back-illuminated 102MP imaging sensor with our blazingly fast X Processor 4 processing engine to create a combination capable of outputting 16-bit images with amazing color fidelity, rich shadow detail, and incredible dynamic range. Its back-illuminated structure enhances image quality by bringing the exposure plane closer to the color filter array. This reduces noise levels from that typically experienced with mirrorless cameras and extends the native ISO to ISO 100. Sharpness is also enhanced, while moire and false colors are near eliminated through the omission of an optical low-pass filter. Optimized to be used exclusively with FUJINON GF Lenses, this combination results in outstanding image quality with high-resolution and immense detail.
High-Resolution Image Sensors require a particularly high level of stability to ensure image clarity and sharpness. Small vibrations can often cause interruptions during the capture process and may even lead to soft and out of focus images despite the use of a tripod. GFX 100 addresses these critical issues by providing filmmakers and photographers with built-in 5-axis image stabilization. A dedicated dual processor works together with gyroscopic accelerometers to achieve sensor stability with speed and precision to provide up to 5.5 stops of image stabilization, even if the camera is fitted with a non-optically stabilized FUJINON lens. Precise large format capture is now feasible in low-light conditions or when shooting handheld.
Focusing / Continuous shooting
The GFX 100 inherits GFX 50S’s popular detachable EVF system that can be adjusted to various angles when using the EVF Tilting Adapter (EVF-TL1). A high resolution 5.76 million dot OLED panel is at the heart of the GFX 100’s high definition EVF unit. The unit also has a magnification of 0.86x and contains five optical glass elementsthat have been specifically designed to offer excellent focusing accuracy.
Colors / Image setting
Combined with the new High Resolution BSI CMOS Sensor and the X-Processor 4, GFX 100 merges with Fujifilm’s legacy in color science to create wonderfully rich 16-bit RAW images that can also be outputted as 16-bit TIFF images through in camera file conversion. Benefiting from 85 years of research and development in color imaging, GFX100 utilizes this same venerated color processing engine found in other X Series and GFX digital cameras. Offering 16 Film Simulation modes gives photographers and filmmakers a way to match their artistic intent much like they do when choosing purpose-specific photographic emulsions. This not only builds upon Fujifilm’s heritage and color science know-how, but also exposes a new generation to the aesthetic benefits of Fujifilm’s contributions to the photographic arts.
While digital cinema has pushed into the world of larger format (35mm x 24mm), limited options still exist for creatives interested in big sensors. With a sensor size of 43.9mm x 32.9mm, GFX100 offers filmmakers a viable alternative in achieving their creative visions. The new sensor and processor combination support 4K video recording at 30p/10bit with a uniquely cinematic, large format look for cinematographers who want exceptional control over depth of field and film-like tonality. With the ability to apply Fujifilm’s highly respected Film Simulations, record in F-Log Rec 2020, and capture 10-bit, 4:2:2 uncompressed footage through the HDMI port, GFX100 should certainly be coming soon to a screen near you.
Focusing / Continuous shooting
Compared to traditional large format digital systems, GFX100 raises the bar in auto-focus performance by utilizing AF phase detection pixels across most of the sensor to help photographers obtain focus wherever they choose to position their subjects in the frame. The algorithm makes full use of 3.76 million phase detection pixels, placed across the entire sensor, to set a new standard in AF speed and precision for large format cameras. Auto-focus performance with speed and accuracy is now a complete reality for photographers needing optimum performance in subject tracking, face/ eye detection and low-contrast environments.
“The GFX 100 can accommodate two NP-T125 batteries, extending the number of frames per charge to approx. 800 when the rear LCD is used. The camera can also be powered and charged through the USB-C connection. Connecting an external battery that supports USB Power Delivery enables even longer continuous video capture and simultaneous charging of the any batteries inside the camera.
Accessories / Workflow
Similarly to previous GFX models, the GFX100 is compatible with “Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” and “Capture One Pro FUJIFILM” for RAW processing and tethered shooting to accommodate the workflow of any professional photographers.
*1 Diagonal length of the 43.8mm x 32.9mm sensor is approx. 55mm.
