Fujifilm finally unveiled an update to its 102-megapixel medium format camera with the GFX100 II. Its 102-megapixel sensor has been updated to have double the readout speed to give it improvements in video, autofocus, and burst shooting speeds. This updated medium format sensor, which measures 43.9×32.9mm and is 1.7x bigger than a 35mm full-frame sensor, now has a slightly tweaked ISO range of 80-12800 (expandable to 40-102400) and subject detection AF that’s powered by AI.
Similar to the one found on the X-H2 and X-H2S, the AI autofocus found on the GFX100 II makes use of deep learning and Fujifilm’s latest AF prediction algorithm that can quickly detect and track subjects like animals, vehicles, birds, insects, and drones. It’s also the fastest medium format camera in the market, as the GFX100 II is capable of burst shooting at up to 8FPS–for comparision, the more expensive Hasselblad X2D 100C caps off at 3.3FPS.
Fujifilm has been committed in making all of its camera equally capable with video, and the GFX100 II can now shoot 8K30 and 4K60 footage, with an option for 5.8K video at 30FPS. The updated internals also allows it to record Apple ProRes 4:2:2 10-bit internally, along with support for other Apple codecs like ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 LT, and Blackmagic RAW.
Port selection for the GFX100 II include a full-sized HDMI output, LAN port, and a USB-C port thast supports external SSDs.
The GFX100 II’s updated design is a mix between the GFX100 and GFX100S, inheriting the latter’s compact DSLR style body and the former’s removable EVF and support for external battery grips. The GFX100 II’s EVF is upgraded to a 9.44-million dot OLED with 1.0x magnification. You also get a traditional mode dial and a large top LCD for viewing relevant shooting data, along with three customizable buttons beneath the shutter release. The GFX100’s IBIS can now handle up to 8 stopes of stabilization, while Film Simulations add a new REALA ACE mode.
The Fujifilm GFX100 II is priced at Php 459,990, while the optional VG-GFXII battery grip and EVF-TL1 tilting adapter are priced at Php 31,298 and Php 26,998 respectively.
