The Japanese media made an interview with Takashi Ueno, manager of Fuji company. He mentioned many topics about gfx’s picture series products. The key contents are summarized below.
Fuji wants to directly compete with full frame with APS-C, so it has decided to use a 44 * 33mm sensor larger than the full frame. The appearance of x-trans technology is to improve the pixels. Therefore, the number of pixels in gfx series is enough, and x-trans technology is not needed, especially the 100 million pixel gfx100. It was also mentioned in the interview that Fuji will not consider the production of fixed lens gfx camera for the time being. With gf50mmf3.5, it is already very compact on the gfx50r, which is basically like a small fixed lens camera.
in this interview, we also mentioned that some target users of other lines of s have changed from professionals to amateurs, but they still focus on the experience of professional photographers. Compared with gfx50s, gfx50r is more suitable for amateurs, and the goal of gfx50r is to be as small and light as possible. The gfx100 is a flagship product. In order to make the picture of 100 million pixels clearer, it is inevitable to carry a tripod with you, which reduces the portability of the system. Therefore, Fuji film puts the Ibis body anti shake into gfx100 to make it more portable and flexible. The gfx100 also has an integrated handle, making it easier to use when holding the camera. At the same time, gfx100 also has phase detection pixels, which can automatically focus faster.
