Barely bigger and barely more expensive than professional 24x36 cameras, the GFX100s offers better definition and a sensor with superior properties - enough to appeal to an even wider audience?
Fujifilm's GFX medium-format standard celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, and it's an opportunity for the Japanese company to launch what could be its best champion: the GFX100S.From the GFX100 launched almost two years ago now, The GFX100S uses the magnificent 100 Mpix medium format sensor, a large 43.8 x 32.9 mm component which is 67% larger than the 24x36 mm sensors from Sony, Nikon, Canon, Leica and Panasonic.
The two main arguments of this new case are easy to understand: it is both more compact and less expensive than its ancestor.Weighing only 900g bare case, it is without a doubt the smallest 100 Mpix case in history.and one of the smallest medium format cameras with the GFX 50R.
Its other easy-to-understand argument is the price: only 5,999 euros - a very high price for ordinary people, but extremely moderate not only in the midst of 24x36 photography, where the latest Alpha and EOS cameras are trading around 4000.€ (with a peak of € 7,300 for the Sony Alpha 1!), But especially in the middle of medium format cameras.
While the entry ticket was once over € 10,000, to say the least, the success of Fujifilm's GFX range has allowed Fujifilm to explode sales volumes and therefore lower prices.even on a case fitted with a “flagship” sensor.
