Fujifilm GFX 100S Review : Gets 90% Overall Score and Gold Award

DPReview has published full in-depth review and test results for the Fujifilm GFX 100S. The medium format camera achieves an excellent 90% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

The Fujifilm GFX100S price tag is $5,999 and available for pre-order from AmazonB&HAdorama in the USA. It will cost £5,499 in EUAmazonDE / AmazonUK.

Fujifilm GFX 100S Key Features:

  • 102MP 43.8 x 32.9mm BSI CMOS Sensor
  • X-Processor 4 Image Processor
  • 4K30 Video; F-Log Gamma, 12-Bit Raw Out
  • 3.69m-Dot OLED EVF
  • 3.2″ 2.36m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • 5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
  • 425-Point Phase-Detection Autofocus
  • ISO 100-12800, Up to 5 fps Shooting
  • 400MP Pixel Shift Multi-Shot
  • 19 Film Simulation Modes

What we like:

  • Excellent image quality across the ISO range
  • Exceptional detail levels
  • Very good tonal quality maintained into shadow regions
  • Choice of Raw compression
  • Image stabilization makes it easy to achieve full resolution
  • Comfortable ergonomics and decent level of button/dial customization
  • Relatively compact form factor
  • Impressive video capabilities
  • USB charging is convenient

What we don’t:

  • Autofocus performance varies significantly between lenses
  • Face/Eye AF not as reliable as its FF rivals
  • AF Tracking not as sticky
  • No tracking AF in video
  • Line-skipped video doesn’t give full sensor low-light performance
  • Comparatively low battery life
  • Viewfinder isn’t very high resolution

Conclusion from DPReview:

The Fujifilm GFX 100S is the smallest, least expensive way to achieve image quality beyond what full-frame can currently offer. You lose some responsiveness and flexibility in return for that, but as an image-making tool the GFX is excellent. It’s also a surprisingly capable video camera but its smaller battery risks being more limiting than it is for stills shooting. Impressive in the studio and beyond.

Good for

Landscapes, portraiture, studio work

Not so good for

Fast-paced action and scenarios that require rapid responses
