Fujifilm has announced the GFX 100 II, the latest camera in its GF range of medium format cameras. The company says the new camera adds speed to the GFX series.
The camera is built around a revised 102 MP sensor, which Fujifilm is calling 102 MP CMOS II HS. The company says the sensor has a newly designed readout circuit, which allows twice the readout speed of the previous cameras.
The buffer memory has also been doubled, to 128 Gb and continuous shooting increases up to 8 fps. Faster autofocus is provided by faster readout and faster processing of X-Processor 5. The company also says the faster readout and increased processing power also helps the camera provide up to 8EV of stabilization from the in-body stabilization system.
The EVF speed is also increased by the faster readout, allowing 60 fps refresh with less lag. The camera's EVF has a revised panel and optics, giving a resolution of 9.44 M dots and 1.0x magnification.
The camera also features a new film simulation: Reala ACE, one of Fujifilm's most true-to-life film stocks. The company says the high resolution and dynamic range of the GFX sensor was needed to appropriately re-create the performance of the film. The camera's video capability has been increased, with 8K capture and Raw output, including BlackMagic Raw and ProRes RAW over HDMI. It can also record ProRes footage internally. The camera supports a series of lenses, including GF, Premista, 35mm and Anamorphic 35mm lenses.
The camera has both CFe Type B and SD slots. It also incorporates the Camera-to-Cloud system from the X-H2s and X-H2, allowing connection to the Frame.io platform or to FTP servers. The camera also gains the ability to record IPTC standard metadata to its images.
The GFX 100 II will be available from September at a recommended price of $7499/€7999.
