Fujifilm announces the portable GFX100S mirrorless camera

Fujifilm revealed the GFX100S, a more advanced GFX camera than any other previous GFX camera. According to Fujifilm, it combines all the best of its imagined technology into a portable, compact body.

At its core, the GFX100S features a 102MP, back-illuminated large format CMOS sensor. Additionally, it is powered by a quad-core X-Processor 4 CPU. The camera’s image sensor is about 1.7 times larger than what you’d expect in the standard DSLR and mirrorless cameras, according to Fujifilm.

“This provides it with a significant advantage over smaller sensors when it comes to producing images with incredibly shallow depth of field, fantastic dynamic range, faithful color reproduction, and outstanding, high-ISO performance,” Fujifilm writes.

GFX100S’ video shooting

The GFX100S records 4K 30p video in 10-bit 4:2:0 F-log internally. It can then be saved to an SD card or output to an external recording device through HDMI in either 10-bit 4:2:2 F-Log or 12-bit RAW. Additionally, the camera supports a 17:9 aspect ratio. H.264 and H.265 are also available. REC.2100 supported Hybrid Log Gamma or F-Log can be selected.

Low light

On-sensor phase detection pixels cover practically 100 percent of the GFX100S’s imaging sensor. According to Fujifilm, the camera can focus in just 0.18, even in luminance levels as low as -5.5EV.


The GFX100S utilizes a new IBIS system from Fujifilm that “dramatically” improves handheld creation. Fujifilm claims, with the new IBIS system, the GFX100S is 20 percent smaller and 10% lighter than the Fujifilm GFX100. Though it’s smaller, the camera supports a 5-axis system with up to 6-stops of CIPA-rated image stabilization. That’s a 0.5-stop improvement over the GFX100.

Size-wise, the GFX100S measures out to be 5.9 in wide, 4.09 in. tall, and 3.4 in. deep. It also features a redesigned shutter unit and uses a lithium-ion battery. In terms of its weight, it weighs about 2 lb, 1 lb lighter than the GFX100.

The GFX100S is both dust- and moisture-resistant and can operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C).
