Fuji has announced the GFX100 medium format camera with a 102MP sensor and 4K video capture. The new GFX100 follows the successful Fuji GFX50R and GFX50S models, both of which sport a 51.4MP sensor in the same 43.8 x 32.9mm form-factor.
As you can see from the stock images of the GFX100, it offers a built-in vertical grip that also doubles the battery capacity by holding a second standard NP-T125 battery (Fuji includes two batteries with the GFX100 body).
The in-body image stabilization offers up to 5.5 stops of shake reduction and the new on-board phase detection hybrid auto-focus (AF) features near 100% coverage with 3.76 million phase detection pixels. The GFX100 has weather sealing in 95 locations across the camera body and detachable EVF to ensure an exceptionally high level of dust and moisture resistance.

Wow! I’m imagining that if done right, 4k video on a medium format sensor could start looking like an IMAX film!
Eric Reagan says
Oh man. That strikes a nerve…
Unfortunately, that image format is still a long way to go. IMAX is 69.6mm x 48.5mm.
The Alexa 65 is touted as an IMAX camera but is still far off from true 70mm IMAX: https://photographybay.com/2014/09/30/arri-unveils-the-alexa-65-a-monstrous-6k-resolution-65mm-cinema-camera/
Marvel really pushed the IMAX label during the last couple Avengers movies shot on the Alexa 65: https://www.imax.com/content/marvels-two-part-avengers-infinity-war-be-filmed-entirely-using-brand-new-imax%C2%AEarri-digital
Seeing an image on a true IMAX screen that’s shot with a 70mm IMAX film camera is a stark contrast from the so-called IMAX screens in nearly every local Regal and AMC theater.
The historical IMAX format is scarce and we may very well see it replaced by the much smaller 65mm digital format from the Alexa 65.
Good point, I should have remembered that because I actually saw the last 70mm film IMAX movie (Interstellar) that played at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center IMAX before they converted it to digital and remember thinking how huge 70mm film is.
