Yeap, if this rumor turns out to be true, the flagship Fuji GFX 100 is about to get ProRes Raw recording via a firmware update thus turning into the first medium format RAW 4K video mirrorless camera on the market.
With its modest $10K price tag, the unit comes packed with a plethora of video-oriented features such as internal 10-bit 4:2:0 DCI and UHD 4K video recording, 4:2:2 10-bit output via HDMI, F-Log gamma profile, precise AF performance and subject tracking, and much more.
Interestingly enough, the camera captures pristine 4K video while making use of the full width of the available 102MP 43.8 x 32.9mm BSI CMOS sensor that achieves more than impressive image quality with high sensitivity using native ISO 12800.
The GFX 100 is also the first mirrorless medium format body that incorporates sensor-shift image stabilization. This stabilization system compensates for up to 5.5 stops of camera shake across five axes in order to reduce the appearance of camera shake which is overall pretty convenient, especially when shooting video handheld.
Meanwhile, here are all the rumored enhancements and fixes that this supposedly imminent firmware update should bring.
Fuji GFX 100 Firmware Update
- Bugs & missing features which require firmware update
- Lens focal lengths are not shown in Mount Adapter menu (like they are with other Fuji cameras)
- Horizontal lines in EVF at very high shutter speeds
- Strange fuzzy and jittering image behaviour in some punch-in focus assists
- IBIS fights panning movement, and lack of IBIS fine-tuning options for video users
- No full frame 35mm or S35 crop modes for video users
- Missing new X-T4 and X-Pro 3 film simulations like Classic Negative
- No view assist for F-LOG or Eterna (unless you count the natural viewfinder mode)
- No in-camera LUT support
- No custom mode selection in video mode
- No anamorphic mode
Sound promising and even to good to be true, so stay tuned for more details as they come out of the rumor mill down the line.
