Fujifilm GFX 100 II Medium Format Camera Body in More Detail
Newly developed CMOS sensor
Fujifilm is known for developing their own image sensors for both GFX and compact APS-C X-series cameras. This trend continues with the GFX 100 II boasting a brand new high-speed and high quality CMOS sensor, which not only packs 102 megapixels, but provides high speed readout.
Fujifilm achieved this by improving circuitry speed, adding a high-speed A/D converter at the top and bottom, whilst also fine-tuning power supply. The results are spectacular with a faster and more efficient shooting experience that caters to high-end content creation and fast workflows.
Other benefits to the updated core components include extended ISO 80 for stills and ISO 100 for movies, the addition of F-Log2 (ISO 800) and impressive quality ISO 80 in 16-bit RAW output for staggering colour, tonal variations and shading.
The newly developed Fujifilm medium format sensor also integrates improved PDAF information (phase detection auto focus) at the corners of the frame, for accurate AF even if your subject moves towards the outer edges.
Huge AF tracking speed and hit rate improvements
Thanks to the sensor, processor, buffer and algorithm updates, the Fuji GFX 100 II camera achieves significantly improved AF hit rates. The X Processor 5’s AI face and subject detection calculations start at the AF area and utilise programming ported from the latest X-H2S, X-T5 and other models from the X-series line-up. The power of AI enables the camera to detect animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, trains, insects and drones. With higher burst rates and buffer capacity, plus extended subject tracking AF, the mark II medium format camera offers more versatile shooting for previously challenging subjects, such as sports, wildlife and reportage.
Portrait and commercial photographers will in particular benefit from the high speed readout of the sensor phase detection system, combined with AI eye/face/body detection, which generates impressive AF results for human subjects. You can even allocate priority to front side eye or pupil, as well as the left or right eye of the subject.
Further fine-tuning is available through a customisable Zone AF function, which allows the shape of the AF area to be adjusted to suit any given shooting situation, for more accurate autofocusing.
Up to 8-stop in-body stabilisation
Having such a high resolution sensor can potentially make it difficult to gain sharp results at slower speeds. To combat this, the efficiency of the IBIS unit has been improved to provide the best performance of any Fujifilm camera, which is befitting of the most accomplished camera of all.
Stabilisation has been improved across every GF lens, with some achieving 8-stops of compensation in order to provide unprecedented handheld shooting and low light opportunities. Lenses with 8-stops are the GF 63mm F2.8 R WR, the GF 110mm F2 R LM WR and GF 80mm F/1.7 R WR Lens. Others range from 5.5-stops and 6.5-stops, with many delivering 7.5-stops of compensation against shake.
Updated ergonomics in a flagship design
A number of changes have been made to the exterior of the mark 2 GFX 100 camera, with new controls, ports and connectivity to support professional users. New additions include a CFexpress Type B card slot, ethernet port, upgraded HDMI type-A port and several new function buttons.
The top monochrome information screen has also been upgraded with a new 2.09-inch LCD panel for clearer viewing of current settings. The GFX 100 II’s shutter button is quick and silent, while the mode dial features no less than six custom settings for fast switching between preassigned functions.
Additionally, a new dedicated switch allows you to change between stills and video mode and all other connectivity has been retained from the previous generation. These include a microphone jack, headphone jack, SD card slot and backlight button.
The camera grip also sees a new BISHAMON-TEXTM texture, which offers improved purchase when shooting hand-held in various angles.
High resolution EVF
The camera is equipped with a high-magnification, high-definition 9.44-million-dot EVF with 1.0x magnification. It suppresses parallax and distortion, which typically occurs when an eye position becomes displaced while using the viewfinder, for incredibly clear and accurate visibility. The EVF boasts a smooth refresh frame rate of approximately 120fps in order to accurately identify a subject’s fast movements clearly.
GFX 100 II memory buffering and continuous shooting
Although the GF format sensor captures an extraordinary 102 megapixels of data, faster readout speeds and quicker processing allow you to capture bursts at higher frame rates than that of the GFX 100S for longer durations. The table below highlights the advantages of the newer body, when shooting with various modes and compressions using either a CFexpress Type B or SD card.
102MP image size
Mechanical shutter 8 fps
Compressed / Lossless / Uncompressed
325 / 302 / 76
100 / 65 / 36
Mechanical shutter 5fps
Compressed / Lossless / Uncompressed
1K+ / 1K+ / 497
188 / 78 / 40
Mechanical shutter 2fps
Compressed / Lossless / Uncompressed
1K+ / 1K+ / 1K+
1K+ / 1K+ / 62
Electronic shutter 5.3fps
Compressed / Lossless / Uncompressed
1K+ / 1K+ / 390
165 / 81 / 39
The advantages are clear with excellent buffering for photographers who want to capture bursts of images and capture the decisive moment without waiting for the buffer to clear. By comparison, the GFX 100S bursts to 5fps for a maximum 42 sequential shots in JPEG, or 16 RAW compressed images.
Medium format films and digital simulations
Fujifilm has extended their range of desirable Medium Format Film Simulations included in the GFX 100 II with the addition of REALA ACE, which results in natural looking images with rich and soft gradation.
This complements existing film simulation modes, which generate gorgeous results straight out of camera with iconic colours and tones. Some of the most popular include:
- PROVIA/STANDARD, which is based on the Fujichrome Provia reversal film.
- Velvia/VIVID, based on Fujichrome Velvia, that is loved for its ultra vivid rich and high-contrast colours.
- ASTIA/SOFT is based on FUJICHROME ASTIA, a film designed for fashion portraits, that prioritises soft and faithful reproduction of skin tones.
- CLASSIC CHROME is a Film Simulation mode designed to reproduce a similar style to 20th century documentary magazines with low-saturation and hard tonal gradation in shadows.
- ETERNA/CINEMA, which is a film designed for motion pictures, delivering uniform colours and an extremely soft tonal gradation in highlights.
- ETERNA BLEACH BYPASS applies a Bleach Bypass effect to the ETERNA/CINEMA for a high-contrast and low-saturation look, used by many filmmakers.
