Hey guys and girls. A little quick post today. It’s part of a promise that I gave to myself that it doesn’t have to be over-the-top-super-review-time every time I decide to share a little something on this blog. I want it to be more like back in the day, where I enjoyed to just upload random stuff to the site.
I was part of a demo-night of the new Fujifilm GFX100 (review here) at Mimosa foto store in Aarhus. I was demoing the camera, but mostly giving on-the-fly pointers in regards to lighting and model posing for the attendants. They were the ones who had to have a great experience.
My partner in crime for the evening was Brian Mogensen, who owns the local denim store Blue Caviar. He isn’t a model, but he has a very photogenic face, so.
Anyway. Enough rambling. Here are a couple of my quick setup shots and examples.
Lighting was a single Godox AD200 through a 60cm deep umbrella.
thanks for fine reporting on the frontline as usual!
I am just curious, what can we really see the difference if you (or whoever) run a side by side shots using GFX 50 and GFX 100 of identical subjects and conditions?
I assume we’ll see little difference on screen, but for those GFX 50 user like myself who never or seldom make prints over 2 meter by 4 meter, what’s the point of having 100 mega p or 200 in a few years?
Could you shed some lights?
Hej man. – Unless you print, or need the cropping power – then nothing. There will be no visible difference. Right now you’ll end up struggling with larger files and longer loading times.
So if you already have a 50mp MF camera – you’re quite set for now.
The real benefit of the GFX100 is in the handling. The IBIS and the PDAF
Thanks for sharing and as always, awesome photos. It’s been amazing following you over the years.
