According to rumors, the new year could get going relatively soon with an interesting camera presentation from Fujifilm. Accordingly, a GFX100S is supposed to be released, which would anchor the medium format in interesting price regions -- if the rumored price of ,999 is true. It will feature a 102MP BSI sensor (the same resolution as the GFX100), which is supposed to be mounted on a movable bearing as well.
But that&s not all -- the GFX100S is also said to be slightly smaller than the older GFX50S, despite IBIS. The latter, like the even more compact GFX50R, also has a medium format sensor, but it only resolves at about 50 MP and is not stabilized. Both, by the way, only film in FullHD (unlike the GFX100); how the GFX100S will fare in terms of video capabilities remains to be seen. However, with an increasing emphasis on film evident in Fujifilm&s cameras, we&re quite confident that a newcomer will offer attractive features in this regard.
Where the trims will be compared to the more expensive GFX100 will be interesting to see, of course. It came on the market in summer 2019 for 10,999 euros. With it, video recording in Cinema 4K (4096x2160) at up to 30p and 400Mbps is possible, internally with 10bit 4:2:0, externally with 10bit 4:2:2. F-Log and HLG are supported, together with an Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder it can be recorded in ProRes Raw. Optionally, the complete sensor width (43.8 x 23.2mm) can be used for recording in DCI4K.

Whether the cheaper offshoot Fujifilm GFX100S will come as rumored, or differently, or not at all, will probably be known at the end of January.
