    Gfx100

    I thought I liked the GFX50s however after a 2nd day of shooting the 100 I can say that I love the beast.

    I'm currently shooting in the Jackson Hole area where it was a low of 1 and a high of 30 while I was out. I mention that in order to talk about the battery power. I received the camera Wed morning and went straight to work charging the batteries and upgrading the firmware on both lenses and body. At the end of the second day and I'm still reading almost full on one and full on the second. So, so far shooting in cold conditions hasn't affected the power; we'll see if it drops like a rock or is steady decline.

    There's a lot to like about this camera, and in no certain order..

    I actually like the size which surprises the heck out of me. I feel very comfortable shooting handheld with all my lenses. So far I've used/tested the 23, 32-64, 100-200 and 250 (with and without the TC). I haven't gotten around to my 45 and 120 but hope to in the next couple days.

    AF - no issues that wasn't caused by me learning what to do.

    High-speed burst - I can't say enough about this gem. I've used this with both the 100-200 and 250 along with the TC shooting moose, buffalo and elk and all I can say I WOW! This in combination of the AF is a real winner.

    Shutter release - very delicate however I'm getting used to is.

    Remote shutter - I can't begin to thank Fuji enough for placing the remote plug on the oppsite side of the L-bracket. Now when ever I'm set up on a tripod I don't have to worry about extending my Arca Swiss bracket out to plug the remote in.

    Speaking of L-brackets - I'm using the same Acra Swiss L bracket from the GFX50s.

    Neckstrap - I actually like the one provided and again tank Fuji for not using the same connector as the GFX 50 had. This in my opinion is a much better design.

    EVF and LCD screens - The EVF is much better than the GFX50. There's now 3-screens to see information. The top screen is great very much like what Phase One did with the XF. The large LCD appears to be the same as the 50s however the color seems to be better. Then there's the smally LCD underneight whic can provide a wealth of information; I have it set to show the historgram.

    There's more to come however I've been out in the cold for close to 12-hrs and am beat.

    Later...

    Nice write up and its good to read your impressions. Id love a GFX100 in the 50S body or an updated 50S with the modern upgrades to the body like PDAF, IBIS, or 4k.

    I hope Graham doesn't read this update

    Thank you. I was very interested in the 100 when it was first announced enough so to pre-order it; then I start seeing actual images showing the size and stepped back as I didn't like the size. Fast forward to earlier this week. I happened to text Anthony Festa at Fotocare letting him know that I might be ordering a 100 after returned from Jackson Hole. Found out he happened to have one that the buyer decided not to get and thanks to FedEx got it here in Jackson the next day.

    Went out this morning hunting buffalo which decided not to show up however I was able to continue testing/getting to know the beast that much better. I took a couple shots of antelope using the grip. No issues there even with the Arca Swiss bracket attached; of course I do have large hands. Bit of a learning curve if I continue using the grip however see no real issues.

    I did find out by accident that I can use the camera in either orientation while wearing my sunglasses. I normally have to remove them and switch to my regular or shoot without. The EVF works well for me with my sunglasses on.

    End of day 3 of shooting and very pleased. Going out in the morning for another sunrise. I hope to add a couple sample images here soon however you can find them on both FB and Instagram under Iron Creek Photography.

    More to come...

    Re: Gfx100

    No images to share here as I plan on posting them on the Mount Fuji Active thread...

    I've been using the GFX100 now for 5-days and seem to have found my retheme. I've shot the majority of the time handheld and can see no issues with the overall weight. I believe my heaviest lens body combination is the 250 with 1.4 TC and find it well balanced.

    Auto focus and burst mode have all worked extremely well. Well enough that I'm getting clear sharp images of the critters here in Jackson Hole. Crisp sharp eyes of owls, moose, buffalo and elk. Shot an eagle this morning with the 250/1.4 TC combo and you could count the feathers around the eyes.

    I need to post more images here however I've limited time and normally go the easy route of FB and IG.

    I'm using the grip shutter more and have no issues there with either it being loose or being able to change settings.

    Working on tripod has been great and I really like the placement of the remote shutter release. I now only remove the L-bracket of my Arca Swiss when replacing batteries.

    The GFX100 is stacking up to be one hell of a camera system...

    More later

    Sure your there freezing your cahonies off and I stuck at work wishing I was out making images now your doing with your new TOY and bragging about the damm thing. This is not very fair.

    JH is a great spot I tell you a funny story.
    one day I was there and having dinner next to a old timer she was the great granddaughter of the man who owned the valley to the east. Her Great Grandfather fought with President Grant over water rights. I said what is your best suggestion to see the animals she told me go out before dark and just after sunrise and you will see more than you care to winner winner chicken dinner.

    Have a great time, shoot hard and don't forget digital is FREE so make as many exposures as you have batteries and cards.

    Don,
    First let me say I appreciate your review of the GFX100. Are there any issues with the camera up to now?
    I do have a question about sensor dust. I know someone that has two Sony mirrorless cameras and now Tony's review that the sensor needs cleaning after a day of shooting leaves me in doubt. He thought maybe without the mirror that might protect it. My question is, have you seen sensor dust as an issue with the GFX100? I thank you for any thoughts on this or any other problems.

    I saw your query directed to another, but in the absence of his reply I can say that I am a GFX100 owner/user and have not encountered issues with sensor dust.

    Re: Gfx100

    Excuse my tardiness in responding however we slept in this morning until 6 then went straight out to work - without coffee!

    I now have 3-Fuji cameras at my disposal; GFX50s, XT-3 and GFX100. I have had no issues with sensor dust or having to be surper careful in cleaning. Sandy's A7r IV on the otherhad appears to be a dust magnet either on the lens or sensor.

    The GFX 50 and 100 both go through a sensor cleaning each time ther are turned off. I'm also very careful whenever I need to switch lenses.

    I've put the 50 aside shortly after getting the 100 and will decided what to do with it when we return home in Nov; the current plan is to see it as I simple don't see a reason to keep it.

    I've now had the 100 8-days shooting in freezing cold weather and haven't had an moments issue that I didn't cause. I've been able to track herds of buffal and elk using AF and burst with great success. I've shot owls and eagle likewise. Most of the shooting has been handheld with the 250 and 1.4TC and have been getting close to 100% success rate.

    I simply can't say enough good about the 100. I will admit to be put off by the advertized size and cancelled by orginal order. I've had no issues with the size or weight and feel very comfortable using it either handheld or on tripod.

    Will write more later. We're expecting winter to hit the Jackson Hole area with bouts of snow and rain and am looking forward to using the 100 much more.

    Re: Gfx100

    So my choice is Blue Ring lenses on my XF/IQ4 150 vs the awesome GFX 100? Obviously Dante says Doh - both! But Im torn because the IQ4 is a level above in image quality but not versatility. The GFX 100 with my full set of GF lenses is superb. The IQ4 & XF boat anchor plus the best SK XF lenses and my tech cam lenses are a level above. However, Ill carry my GFX everyday but the IQ4 systems only on special occasions ... ugh.

    Ever since relieving myself of my XF+5 lens boat anchor I celebrated. But now I like my 50R so much that I am debating ditching the Phase Achromatic/Alpa 5 lens kit altogether some day for the Fuji 100 and thus having only one lens system to carry.

    Was debating getting the A7r4 for street with say a Zeiss 25 or 40 after no more M gear, but will delay that decision until after having a chance to try the 50R+50 f3.5 for street use. Don's sensor dust comment sure gives me pause. Wonder if when changing lenses on the Sony is camera turned off during changing and with maximum protection possible from winds and elements?

    We all have choices and that's my 2 cents.

    Re: Gfx100

    I've been away from everything Phase One for several years having sold it all shortly after getting the 50s and must say I don't miss it.

    I like the size of the 50s and wish the 100 would have been closer to it however I've now been using it for over a week and find I like it each day that much more. I like the idea of a one lens system which I have with the GFX system. I haven't been capturing much landscape this past week but what I've done is great. The majority of the recent work has been wildlife; owls, eagles, elk, buffalo and moose. The AF is outstanding and the burst rate of the 100 is unbelievable.

    My comment on dust with the A7r IV concerns a single dust spot which we can't seem to get rid of on one lens. I don't like that you have to manually do a sensor cleaning on the Sony however we've been doing that on a daily basis and the sensor seems to be clean. We'll keep at the lenses and hope to have the one-spot gone before too long.

    Speaking of dust - I have used all my lenses switching back and forth and have had no issue with any dust.

    Re: Gfx100

    I think it tells you something when we say that we'll carry the GFX every day!! I've been carrying around a 50R and the wide zoom all day...and it's still a bit of a brick. So the comparison is what's important I guess. It's easier than the STC, etc.

    So true.

    And to add with the Fuji, the ability to hand hold, excellent AF with multiple AF points and great image quality, its not a tough call.

    My only issues so far with the Fuji are AF with flat low contrast subjects (clouds) and real inability for manually focus in low light. Since the lenses are all focus by wire, the lack of a infinity mark makes manually focusing in low light sunrise or sunset scenes when AF fails.

    Re: Gfx100

    Hi all -

    Would someone with a GFX100 be so kind as to measure the distance that the grip extends out from the lens mount (not the front surface of the camera - the actual lens mount). Additionally what are the dimensions of the camera with the viewfinder removed?

    If/when Fuji get around to implementing multi-shot on this camera, I will seriously consider it for my CAPcam, but need to know what mounting challenges I may face.

    Kind regards,


    Gerald.

    Gerald the Grip ( at its high point - around top of grip) extends about 20mm from the actual front body and about 15mm from the actual lens mount which is about 5mm proud of the body.
    Around the middle of the grip ( center ) teh grip extends about 15mm and is 10mm from actual lens mount.
    The bottom grip extends about 3-4mm less than main grip at its center.

    Hi Pete -

    Many thanks for your prompt reply.

    Fingers crossed for the multishot capability to come sooner rather than later!

    Kind regards,


    Gerald.

    Re: Gfx100

    At the Fujifilm place at Tokyo Midtown yesterday I had a chat with one of the guys about the GFX 100. In Aussie stock is tough to come by. He said it's a global issue and very tough in Japan to get stock. Not sure when it would get better!

    Re: Gfx100

    Thought I'd share this here seeing as how ya all want images.

    The elk was across a 2-lane road and off slightly. I'd say less than 100 yards away. GFX 100, 250 with 1.4 TC. The top image is the full frame bottom is 100% crop. No processing other than to dumb it down to Jpeg.

    Re: Gfx100

    There really isn't much more to say after using the GFX100 for 2-weeks. I guess I could say I'm glad I got it.

    I've been in the Jackson Hole area for 27-days and have been using the 100 almost the entire time. Cold, freezing, wet everything you'd expect here. No issues.

    I've shot over 80% handheld because I can. With no issues. I find I'm using the vertical grip a lot more than I thought I would; again with no issues.

    I shot with lightweight and heavy gloves and after getting used to the shutter buttons and other controls have had no isses.

    The majority of the work so far has been wildlife capturing buffalo, elk and moose. We were very luck to also capture an owl and eagle. The AF is fast and accurate. I'm still blown away with the burst speed of the 100. was tracking a running buffalo the other day and caught several frames within a matter of seconds - all were sharp and in focus.

    I've used all my lenses now with the exception of the 120 macro and all have work very well. The 250 and 1.4TC stay on the camera until I need anoth lens for landscape. This camera/lens combo is I beleive the heaviest at around 6 pounds however I've had zero trouble handholding.

    The files are stunning on my portable studio setup and I can't wait until I see them at home.

    Power with the 2-batteries is very good as well. I'm getting around 800 frames before I need to replace the batteries. It helps to have 2 spares as well as a double charger (many thanks to my brother Ken Doo).

    The GFX50s has been left in the room the entire time I've had the 100 and I have made up my mind to sell it once we return to Arizona next month.

    I can't see any further updates here unless it's to answer a question. I will close this by saying this isn't my first 100-megapixel system however it is the lightest weight and most well thought out one. It puts the joy back into carrying a system that is capable of doing so much.

    Re: Gfx100

    Well you know what this is telling you - you need two GFX100s, one with the 250/1.4TC and the other for 32-64 or 100-200 or 23mm

    I’m sure that Dante would approve. Heck, that’s how I lived with my Leicas and Nikons!

    In US, I got within 2 weeks of ordering from Capture Integration. They told 3-5 weeks estimated delivery when I ordered. Give a call to Steve Hendrix.

    i just love to read about such issues, in mainland china and HK(where i do most of my shopping for obvious reasons) i never have any delays, i gave my dealer a notice one week in advance and both, gfx100 and 250mm, were available on my arrival in hk.
    same goes for leica stuff, all around the world i hear about delays and waiting time, not in HK.
