On September 12, 2023, the Japanese brand launched its new FUJIFILM GFX100 II with a 55mm diagonal image sensor (43.8mm x 32.9mm), approximately 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full-frame sensor. This is a 102MP CMOS II HS sensor, the processor has also changed and has been upgraded with an X-Processor 5. To ensure shake-free shots and photos, this GFX is equipped with a 5-axis IBIS image stabilizer that has eight stabilization steps. Fujifilm has opted to mount its own G-mount to make a body compatible with the entire range of Fujifilm lenses. Other lens mounts can be used with the corresponding adapter.
Fujifilm has opted for a great camera where at the photographic level has improved subject detection with AF and improved burst performance. It is a camera that has also improved its video function allowing internal recording up to 4K/60P 4:2:2 bit 4K/60P. These parameters make it perfect for both professional users (filmmakers, videographers or photographers) and highly skilled amateurs.
The Fujifilm GFX100 II while maintaining the 102MP, thanks to the new X-Processor 5 increases image quality, processing speed and also an increase in focus speed and continuous shooting, all resulting in a more professional video recording. Its AF tracking algorithm is based on artificial intelligence just like that of the Fujifilm X-H2s.
This new Fujifilm GFX100 II has great capabilities for video/cinema as it allows recording 4K/60P 4:2:2 10bit 4K/60P video internally and for the first time in this GFX series it supports 8K/30P. For Full HD recording it offers 120P. In addition you can record with ISO100 as standard sensitivity to avoid noise as much as possible.
The internal recording allows MOV ProRes 422, HQ and LT, HEVC/H265 and MPEG4/H264 and in MP4 AVC/H264 and ACC and through HDMI allows to output RAW files. When combined with Blackmagic Video Assist monitors, thanks to its latest update, it allows recording in Blackmagic RAW (at resolutions up to 8K and 29.97fps). This is also a great advantage because if you combine the GFX100 II recording with DaVinci for further editing the metadata is included in the file with the advantage that this entails.
Recording support is on SD cards and also CFexpress (it is also possible to record on SSD drives), the codec compression method can be LongGOP or All-Intra. As a high-end cinema camera, the F-Log2 curve has been incorporated, for this reason it is possible to reach 14 steps of dynamic range (when set to F-Log2 D with range priority).
This camera has a multitude of facilities for optimal and efficient shooting such as the inclusion of a waveform monitor, a vectorscope, zebra setting and other useful features. The Fujifilm GFX100 II supports various film recording formats, including Premista, 35mm and anamorphic (35mm). In addition, with a G to PL mount adapter, cinematographers have the facility to use any film mount lens.
In terms of connections, the GFX100 II
has an HDMI
that can output to an external monitor and USB-C
where you can record in all modes including 4K/60p and 8K/30p*. On the other hand, a new feature is that it includes an Ethernet
port (1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T) which will make it possible to expand connections in real time in terms of transmissions.
In this kit the Fujifilm GFX100 II
comes with a DaVinci Resolve Studio
license. DaVinci Resolve Studio is a complete "suite" with all the tools necessary to complete the post production process of a shoot.
From ingest to export, the entire production is handled by the same software. DaVinci Resolve
offers a new way to process wide color gamut images, 3D surround sound and innovative tools for high dynamic range grading, as well as the artificial intelligence
based Magic Mask feature. The Fairlight module provides improved keyboard and mouse editing mode selection and a high-performance audio engine called Fairlight Audio Core, which supports 2000 tracks in a single system. It includes a revamped virtual clapperboard with metadata and bin splitters to organise and find material faster, expanded waveforms for audio editing, intelligent resynchronisation, proxy files and real-time effects preview. Titles, effects and compositions created in the Fusion module can be used in the Editing and Editing modules. DaVinci Resolve
is video editing software that is divided into several specialised modules, each with specific tools and dedicated workspaces. These modules include Montage and Editing
for editing, Fusion
for visual effects and graphic animation, Colour
for colour grading, Fairlight
for audio processing, and Media and Delivery
for file organisation and finalisation. Switching between these tasks is easy with a single click.
module is highly advanced and suitable for complex projects such as feature films and TV programmes, offering familiar tracks, dual viewers and automatic trimming functions.
module is designed for projects with tight deadlines and documentaries, with a streamlined interface for beginners and quick editing functions.
module is a powerful colour correction tool used in the film industry, with intuitive and advanced controls for beginners and professionals. It includes features for primary and secondary corrections, advanced HDR colour grading and more.
module enables the creation of professional-quality visual effects and graphic animations using a node-based workflow with 2D and 3D tools, tracking and mask creation.
module focuses on audio post-production, with keyboard-based editing capabilities and support for up to 2000 tracks with real-time effects. It offers mixing and mastering options in various formats.
The Media and Delivery
modules deal with importing, organising and delivering projects, with tools for preparing material, synchronising clips and adding metadata. The Delivery module provides complete control over encoding options and formats, as well as a processing queue for exporting multiple jobs.
DaVinci Resolve Studio offers a wide range of over 100 GPU and CPU driven Resolve FX effects, organised into categories such as blur, lighting, image restoration, beauty and styling. In addition, this release includes 11 innovative plug-ins that allow you to highlight textures, recover details, create composites, add effects and more. These effects can be animated using the new unified inspector in the Montage, Edit and Fusion modules. Improvements have also been made to dust and object removal, bad pixel correction, blur and grain effects.
