- Fujifilm launched two cameras and three lenses today.
- The new cameras are Fujifilm GFX 100S and Fujifilm X-E4.
- All the new products will be available by the end of February, 2021.
Fujifilm just announced the new member of its GFX-series cameras, the GFX 100S, which is compact and 500 grams lighter than GFX100. The new Fujifilm GFX 100S weighs 900 grams while delivering high-quality stills and videos.
To make the new GFX 100S lightweight and small in size, Fujifilm re-designed the shutter unit, in-body image stabilization unit, and body structure but didn;t touch the image sensor. The GFX 100S features the same sensor as included in the GFX100, a 102-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor.
In the times when camera makers are busy producing compact full-frame cameras, Fujifilm has its reason to stick with large format cameras. The company believes in GFX-system for reasons such as one -high resolution, to use the full potential of the sensor for showing details in the images, two -for better colour tones, and three -for smooth bokehs.
