  • The smooth rubber covering will be replaced with texture on the shipping camera
  • Feels like a Nikon D5 or Canon EOS-1DX II with a fast prime attached
  • The only dial on top left has 3 positions for Stills/Movie/Multi-Exposure
  • The center button on the top is the drive button
  • The EVF will have X-H1 type performance (which is much better than the GFX50S)
  • The EVF is removable like the GFX50S and you can use them interchangeably on the GFX100
  • The focus mode button is now on the left instead of right
  • Playback is now on the lower right of the screen
  • No 4-way controller
  • OLED ribbon display on the back under the LCD, but not active on the prototype it shows key camera settings but isn’t touch sensitive
  • There is still a bulge in the back for the sensor, but it’s smaller since the battery was relocated to the grip

  • Same Fujifilm NP-T125 battery as the GFX
  • Should get 400 shots per battery so 800 shots with both batteries charged
