At $9,999.95 and set for release on June 27, the Fujifilm GFX 100 is the word’s first 102-megapixel mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera. Featuring five-axis in-body image stabilization, a spring-suspension system for reduced “shutter shock”, on-board phase detection hybrid auto-focus offering “approximately” 100% coverage, and the ability to record 4:2:2 10-bit DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) video at up to 30fps, with the option to output uncompressed footage via HDMI. “This dramatically broadens the scope of situations where a user can hand-hold the camera and still enjoy the world of 100MP+ ultra-high resolution, pushing the boundaries of photographic expression,” said Fujifilm.

Other features include a 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen LCD, dual SDXC card slots, a USB-C port, microphone / headphone jacks, a 2.5mm remote release connector, 16 Film Simulation modes, Fujifilm’s X-Processor 4 engine, 16-bit RAW photos, Fujifilm’s new “Smooth Skin Effect” function, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and tethered support for Capture One.
“The phase detection hybrid AF system one-ups other medium format digital cameras by using 3.76 million phase-detection pixels across almost the entire sensor, allowing photographers to focus on subjects anywhere in the frame. Build-wise, the GFX100 is quite tough: featuring 95-point weather sealing, the camera is dust-resistant and weather-resistant. The magnesium alloy body is also both lightweight and durable,” reports Peta Pixel.
