Press release:

Fujifilm Bolsters its Flagship Camera Lineup with Launch of FUJIFILM GFX100 II Mirrorless Digital Camera

VALHALLA, N.Y., September 12, 2023 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the introduction of FUJIFILM GFX100 II digital camera (GFX100 II), a new flagship addition to the GFX System’s family of mirrorless digital cameras. Incorporating a 55mm large-format image sensor1 - which is nearly 1.7x larger than the 35mm image sensors found in full-frame cameras - GFX100 II produces images with broad dynamic range at a very shallow depth-of-field.

GFX100 II includes a newly developed, 102-megapixel high-speed image sensor and Fujifilm’s latest 5th generation X-Processor 5 image processing engine, which doubles the signal readout speed compared to the current model2. This in turn provides unique benefits to image makers, especially in the areas of high-speed, continuous shutter mode, autofocus (AF) and video.

“Imaging professionals rely on FUJIFILM GFX System cameras and lenses to take their bestimages to another level,” said Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging Division and Optical Device Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “GFX100 II is another incredible design and engineering feat for Fujifilm. We’re incredibly excited to see the new creative heights that will be achieved with this camera when it gets into the hands of our photographers and filmmakers.”

GFX100 II utilizes Fujifilm’s latest high-speed image sensor, along with its advanced image processing engine to deliver Artificial Intelligence (AI) based subject-detection autofocus (AF), which was most recently featured in the FUJIFILM X-H2S mirrorless digital camera. Developed with Deep Learning technology and updated with the latest prediction AF algorithm, GFX100 II now incorporates AI based subject-detection AF to quickly track and detect animals, birds, vehicles, and other fast-moving objects like insects and drones3, and it automatically keeps them in focus so that photographers can concentrate on framing their images and waiting for the perfect moment to make their image.

Burst shooting performance has been increased from the current4 5.0 frames per second to 8.0 frames per second5, expanding the GFX100 II’s application across various genres, including fashion, commercial, landscape, sports, and photojournalism. An expanded buffer memory4 extends seamless burst capabilities for those once-in-a-lifetime moments.

GFX100 II’s new sensor also provides enhanced capabilities for video production. The ability to internally record Apple ProRes 4:2:2, 10-bit video at 4K/60p and 8K/30p is a major first for GFX System cameras. With the use of an optional, third-party GF to PL lens adapter, multiple video recording formats can be natively accommodated on GFX100 II, making the FUJINON PREMISTA 35mm lens and Anamorphic (35mm) cinema lenses easily adaptable for various uses including cinematic applications. Additionally, GFX100 II supports three Apple ProRes codecs, i.e., Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422 and Apple ProRes 422 LT. When recording in Apple ProRes, the camera can also output h.264 and Apple ProRes 422 Proxy files, which can streamline workflows overall from production to post-production.

GFX100 II also features Ethernet, HDMI Type A, and USB-C terminals for enhanced external device connectivity. Dual card slots support one CFExpressTM Type B and one SD card. CFExpressTM Type B cards are required to access the GFX100 II’s enhanced video performance features. Production workflows are additionally streamlined with the camera’s native, accessory free integration for Frame.io Camera to Cloud, which seamlessly delivers files directly to the cloud, and Atomos AirGluTM BT, which allows timecode on GFX100 II to be accurately jammed and synchronized across various compatible accessories, audio recorders, and other hardware and software products that are commonly used in video production.

GFX100 II includes a total of 20 Film Simulation modes, including the new REALA ACE mode, which is based on Fujifilm’s color negative film, offering a neutral color reproduction suitable for all subject types. Additionally, Fujifilm’s innovation of the pixel structure has enabled the use of ISO80 as a standard sensitivity. When the sensor sensitivity is set at

ISO80, the camera can make images with incredible dynamic range and noise levels that are lower than previous GFX100 and GFX100S models. The new sensor’s photosites have been optimized to increase light use efficiency at the sensor’s edges, thus improving both image quality at the edges of the photo, and AF accuracy over the previous, GFX100 and GFX100S models.

Hardware enhancements include a five-axis, in-body image stabilization (IBIS) that provides up to 8-stops of image stabilization, as well as 1.0x viewfinder magnification, and a high- magnification, high-definition 9.44-million-dot EVF. The camera's new design also features a large, sub-LCD, tilted top panel, and a fashionably textured grip.

Optional Accessories

  • FUJIFILM VG-GFX II Vertical battery grip (VG-GFX II) accommodates two NP-W235 batteries for extended image- and video-making opportunities.
  • FUJIFILM FAN-001 Cooling fan (FAN-001) allows for extended video filming in high temperatures.
  • FUJIFILM EVF-TL1 EVF tilt adapter (EVF-TL1) provides diverse shooting angles while using the viewfinder.

Pricing and Availability

GFX100 II is expected to be available in early fall 2023 at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $7,499.95 USD and $10,124.99 CDN. The pricing for the optional accessories is expected to be as follows:
VG-GFXII – $499.95 USD and $679.99 CDN

FAN-001 – $199 USD and $260 CDN EVF-TL1 – $569 USD and $750 CDN

The GFX100 II has been the source of much controversy and was even the subject of two PetaPixel podcast episodes since its announcement. Now that we have a production unit, how does it perform? Chris Niccolls and Jordan spent some time looking at the files, and they have some concrete thoughts.

The new Fujifilm GFX100 II is the best digital medium format camera that Fujifilm has made thus far, but is it for you? It really does depend on what you currently have. If you're already in the GFX ecosystem, it's a natural upgrade. It's the fastest GFX camera, it has the latest sensor and processor, the newest film simulation (Reala ACE), and the most modular since the original GFX50S. Even the price of $7500 USD is $2500 cheaper than the original GFX100. What's not to like right? Well, if you currently own the original GFX100, how much will you get on a trade-in, or if you try to sell yourself on eBay or FB Marketplace? You will be lucky to get half of what you paid. Now, as a professional, or someone with extra cash, maybe it's not a big deal. But for the rest of us, that's a big financial hit. 

For me, I love the overall performance and image quality of the new GFX100 II; but the previous GFX100 and GFX100S also produce high quality, high resolution images. If you need the speed and modularity of the latest and greatest, it makes sense to get the new GFX100 II. If you're looking for a deal, look for pre-owned GFX100 and GFX100S. I'm sure there are bargains to be found. 

As for the new GF55mm f/1.7 R WR, it's a great focal length as a general-purpose lens. It's halfway between the GF45 and GF63, so this can be your one prime lens, albeit big and heavy. The optical performance is top-notch, and an option to the GF80mm f/1.7 R WR. The shallow depth of field and compression will be higher on the GF80mm, but the GF55mm allows you to work closer with your subject, while still being able to use it as a standard-wide lens for most situations. Stay tuned for my Fujilove articles with more images and comparisons.
