These technological advancements enhance the autofocus capabilities and allow for accurate tracking of various subjects, be it animals, cars, or more. With a notable improvement in continuous shooting, the camera now offers a speed of 8.0 frames per second, expanding its usability for different photography styles such as fashion, advertising, landscapes, sports, and news reporting.
Furthermore, this latest camera body includes video recording capabilities, providing the ability to record 4K/60P 4:2:2 10-bit video. For the first time in the GFX series, it also supports 8K/30P video recording. A new “Video Format” camera menu adjusts the video format based on the attached lens, optimizing video recording settings such as for Premista 35mm and Anamorphic (35mm).
The Fujifilm GFX100 II also introduces a new Film Simulation mode called “REALA ACE,” enhancing the visual effect with realistic, natural colors and low contrast tones. This mode proves beneficial for shooting various subjects and situations. In terms of design, the camera features a large rotatable LCD display and a new camera surface provided by BISHAMON, ensuring a luxurious and comfortable user experience, specifically tailored to meet the needs of professional photographers and videographers.
