Fujifilm announces the GFX 100

Fujifilm announces the GFX 100

Preserve for the Future

The GFX, FUJIFILM’s mirrorless digital camera system, has achieved the highest level of image quality in the world of professional photography. The system continues its evolution… 

The GFX100 uses a large format CMOS sensor with over 100 million pixels which makes this the highest class resolution mirrorless digital camera ever produced. The GFX100, is the coming together of FUJIFILM’s unique blend of imaging and optical technologies and heralds the future of photography for the years to come.  

Body

Despite featuring a sensor which is 1.7 times larger than a 35mm full frame sensor, the GFX100’s body is equivalent to that of a flagship 35mm full frame DSLR camera in terms of dimensions (156.2mm (W) x 163.6mm (H) x 102.9mm (D), measuring 48.9mm at the thinnest part) and weight (approx. 1400g including two batteries, memory card and EVF).

 

 Sensor / Processor / Mount

The new sensor, specifically developed for this camera, measures approx. 55mm diagonally and boasts an effective pixel count of approx. 102 million. When combined with the fourth generation “X­ Processor 4” processor, it delivers the world’s highest level of image quality with exceptional color reproduction unique to FUJIFILM and the ultra sharp “FUJINON GF lenses.”

 Stabilization

Generally speaking, the higher the pixel count an image sensor has, the higher the likelihood of camera shake. To avoid this threat to image quality, FUJIFILM has designed an IBIS system specifically for the new 102MP large format sensor which gives up to 5.5 stops** of image stabilization.

 inder / Monitor

The GFX100 inherits GFX 50S’s popular detachable EVF system that can be adjusted to various angles when using the EVF Tilting Adapter EVF­TL1. The world’s highest class resolution 5.76 million dot OEL panel has been used to develop the GFX100 high definition EVF unit. The viewfinder has a magnification of 0.86x and contains five optical glass elements including aspherical elements and has been specifically designed for the 102MP sensor, which requires extreme focusing accuracy.

 Colors / Image setting

The combination of the newly developed image sensor and the fourth generation “X‐Processor 4” processing engine means the camera also supports “16‐bit RAW” mode, requested by many professional photographers. The GFX100 also supports 16‐bit TIFF in camera file conversion. The ultra high 100MP+ resolution and rich color and tonal reproduction found in our FILM SIMULATION modes, significantly boosts photo data’s post processing tolerance, meeting the diverse needs of professional photographers.

 Movie recording

The combination of the new image sensor with high speed readout and the high performance fourth generation “X‐Processor 4” engine has given the camera the ability to record 4K30P video (10bit 4:2:2 externally and 10bit 4:2:0 internally), a world’s first amongst large‐ format consumer mirrorless digital cameras carrying a sensor bigger than the 35mm format.

 Focusing / Continuous shooting

The GFX100 is the first model in the GFX System that uses our phase detection AF algorithm, adopted from the fourth generation X Series cameras (X‐T3 and X‐T30), and which is praised for its precision and speed. The algorithm makes full use of 3.76 million phase detection pixels, placed across the entire sensor, to set a new standard in AF speed and precision for large format cameras performing the standard “Single Point” AF as well as “Zone” and “Wide Tracking” AF. The effect is particularly noticeable when using prime lenses with a heavy set of focus lens elements, achieving speed improvement of up to 210% over the conventional contrast AF system.

 Various functions

The GFX100 can accommodate two NP‐T125 batteries, extending the number of frames per charge to approx. 800 when the rear LCD is used. The camera can also be powered and charged through the USB‐ C connection. Connecting an external battery that supports USB Power Delivery enables even longer continuous shooting and simultaneous charging of the two batteries in the camera.

 Accessories / Workflow

Similarly to previous GFX models, the GFX100 is compatible with “Tether Shooting Plug‐in PRO for Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®” and “Capture One Pro FUJIFILM” for RAW processing and tethered shooting to accommodate the workflow of any professional photographers.

 Notes

 * Diagonal length of the 43.8mm x 32.9mm sensor is approx.

** Pitch/yaw shake With GF63mmF2.8 R WR lens mounted.

“La puissance du RX 100 dans un boîtier ultra compact et robuste ! Parfait pour les prises de vues dans des conditions extrêmes »

 Guillaume Ruchon (@guiruch), Créateur de contenus vidéo et photo & Ambassadeur Sony

 Les spécifications.

  • Capteur d’image de type 1.0 empilé de 15,3 mégapixels offrant une superbe qualité d’image dans un[i] boîtier ultra-compact résistant et étanche[ii]
  • Objectif grand angle fixe ZEISS® Tessar T* 24 mm[iii] F4 intégré
  • Réalisation de vidéos avec enregistrement interne en 4K[iv] et nouvelles solutions de stabilisation d’image

  • Entrée microphone et grip de prise de vue (VCT-SGR1) offrant une solution fonctionnelle idéale pour les vlogs
  • Solution multi-appareils pour des créations vidéo originales depuis différents points de vue

Sony présente aujourd’hui un nouveau modèle exceptionnel qui vient s’ajouter à sa célèbre gamme d’appareils photo compacts[vi]: le RX0 II (modèle DSC-RX0M2), l’appareil photo compact premium le plus petit et le plus léger au monde. S’appuyant sur la résistance à l’eau/la poussièreii, aux chocs[vii] et à l’écrasement,[viii] ainsi qu’au format ultra-compact du RX0 original, ce nouveau modèle intègre des fonctionnalités supplémentaires telles que l’enregistrement 4K interne, un écran LCD inclinable à 180 degrés vers le haut et à 90 degrés vers le bas qui fonctionne même sous l’eau[ix], ii et de nouvelles solutions de stabilisation d’image pour l’enregistrement vidéo. 

Le RX0 II intègre en son cœur un capteur d’image empilé CMOS Exmor RS™ de type 1.0 de 15,3 mégapixelsi et un moteur de traitement de l’image BIONZ X™ avancé qui permet une reproduction des couleurs améliorée[x] avec notamment de superbes tonalités de peau. Ce concentré de puissance a été optimisé pour offrir des performances ultra-rapides et une qualité d’image saisissante pour la photographie comme pour la réalisation de films, avec une plage étendue de sensibilité allant de 80[xi] à 12 800 ISO. L’objectif grand angle fixe F4.0 ZEISS® Tessar T* 24 mmiii possède une distance de mise au point minimale réduite à 20 cm, ce qui en fait l’objectif idéal pour les selfies ou les photos de petits objets. 

 

Un appareil photo pour toutes les circonstances

Le RX0 II permet une utilisation en toute tranquillité et peut être emmené partout. Avec ses petites dimensions de 59 mm x 40,5 mm x 35 mm[xii] et son poids plume de 132 g,[xiii] le RX0 II se glisse facilement dans une poche et est prêt à affronter tous les éléments. L’appareil est étancheii jusqu’à 10 mètres de profondeur, et résiste à la poussièreii, aux chocsvii jusqu’à 2 mètres et à l’écrasementviii jusqu’à 200 kgf.

 

« Lors de la conception du RX0 d’origine, l’objectif était de réaliser un appareil photo dont le format et les capacités techniques favorisent de nouvelles formes d’expression créative », indique Yann Salmon Legagneur, Directeur marketing de la division Imagerie Numérique chez Sony Europe. « Nous nous sommes appuyés sur ce modèle pour créer le nouveau RX0 II, auquel nous avons ajouté des fonctionnalités qui, selon nous, en font le partenaire idéal pour voyager dans toute sorte d’environnement, offrant d’excellentes performances photo et vidéo en toutes circonstances pour les vlogs ou les photos. »

 

Bien plus que des vidéos

Le RX0 II permet des enregistrements vidéo internes 4K 30piv avec lecture totale et sans perte de pixels, capturant environ 1,7 fois plus de données que ne l’exige la vidéo 4K. Ce suréchantillonnage permet de réduire le moiré et les tremblements, pour des vidéos 4K fluides haute qualité avec une profondeur et un niveau de détail remarquables. À l’aide des applications mobiles récemment introduites Sony « Imaging Edge™ », il est possible de transférer cette vidéo vers un smartphone[xiv], puis de la modifier et de la partager en toute simplicité sur les réseaux sociaux.

 Le RX0 II est équipé d’une stabilisation électronique intégrée[xv] qui garantit des vidéos stables, même sans trépied. Pour aller encore plus loin, il est possible d’exporter la vidéo vers un smartphone ou une tablette à l’aide du module « Movie Edit »,[xvi] qui traite les informations supplémentaires enregistrées pendant le tournage pour produire une vidéo aussi fluide qu’avec un support pivotant.[xvii] « Intelligent Framing », nouvelle fonctionnalité accessible via le module « Mobile Edit » de Sony, permet de conserver le sujet au centre de l’image et de corriger la distorsion de l’image lors du montage final. Le format d’image peut alors être défini en fonction du support sur lequel la vidéo sera partagée.

D’autres fonctionnalités vidéo sont présentes dans le RX0 II, comme le super ralenti, avec un enregistrement jusqu’à 1 000 images/s[xviii], une sortie HDMI 4K non compressée et un enregistrement vidéo proxy simultané. Les utilisateurs peuvent exploiter les fonctions Profils d’image, S-Log2 et Time Code / Bits utilisateur pour garantir un résultat final qui retranscrit fidèlement leur vision créative.

Photographie de précision

Outre ses capacités vidéo, le RX0 II fait preuve d’une grande polyvalence, puisqu’il intègre aussi de nombreuses fonctionnalités photo. Il intègre notamment un obturateur anti-distorsion allant jusqu’à 1/32 000 s et offre une rafale jusqu’à 16 images/sv pour saisir ces moments d’émotion fugaces que l’on peut lire furtivement sur le visage du sujet. Mise à jour depuis le RX0 d’origine, la reproduction des couleurs a été améliorée afin de reproduire les tons vifs et naturels de la peau, tandis que le mode « Effet peau lisse » peut, si besoin, être appliqué pour masquer les petites rides et imperfections. L’appareil photo est par ailleurs doté de fonctions de notation et de protection et permet d’afficher en groupe photos en rafale.

 La mise au point automatique sur l’œil Eye AF de Sony, très appréciée des portraitistes du monde entier, a également été mise à jour sur le RX0 II. La vitesse, la précision et le fonctionnement de la mise au point automatique sur l’oeil ont été améliorés afin de réaliser de superbes portraits encore plus facilement : il suffit d’enfoncer le déclencheur à mi-course pour verrouiller la mise au point sur l’œil du sujet. L’utilisateur peut sélectionner l’œil ciblé (gauche / droit / auto) dans le menu ou l’attribuer à un bouton personnalisé afin de se concentrer sur la composition.

L’appareil photo permet en outre de réaliser des prises de vue par intervalle, qui peuvent ensuite être modifiées à l’aide du « Viewer » de l’application de bureau « Imaging Edge » de Sony pour les transformer en de magnifiques vidéos Time-lapse[xix].

Options multi-appareils

L’application « Imaging Edge Mobile » de Sony permet de contrôler jusqu’à cinq appareils photo RX0 II sans fil,[xx][xxi] et les utilisateurs pourront contrôler entre 6 et 50 appareils via un routeur (prévu pour l’été 2019). Le RX0 II est également compatible avec le boîtier de commande pour appareil photo CCB-WD1,[xxii] qui permet de connecter et contrôler jusqu’à 100 appareils dans une configuration multi-appareils filaire. Ces solutions multi-appareils offrent de toutes nouvelles possibilités de photographie et expressions vidéo créatives depuis n’importe quel point de vue.

Prix et disponibilité

Le kit RX0 II avec la fixation et la poignée de prise de vue VCT-SGR1 sera disponible en Europe en mai 2019, au prix de 800 € environ.

AirMagic the new AI based Drone Photography software

AirMagic the new AI based Drone Photography software

Skylum announced AirMagic, the world’s first fully automated AI-powered enhancer for Mac & PC, created for drone and aerial photography.

 

While drones let us shoot incredible images from previously unreachable places, the photos themselves often lack quality, making for a lot of manual post-processing work to fix issues like haze, low or extreme contrast, lack of sharpness, undersaturation and chromatic aberration. This tedious editing process requires time, special knowledge and expensive software. With AirMagic, these problems are a thing of the past. AirMagic was created to automatically resolve issues inherent to aerial photography. It lets photographers process their images without major involvement — all you need to do is drop all your aerial photos into the app, and AirMagic takes care of the rest to make each photo look its best. 

AirMagic works by first detecting the drone camera used to produce an image, and analyzing its lens and color profile. From there, it makes automatic lens corrections and other camera-specific optimizations. AirMagic uses smart algorithms and Artificial Intelligence to evaluate each photograph, applying modifications such as color reveal, haze removal, sky enhancement and other finely-tuned adjustments to make each photo look just as it was intended. 

AirMagic supports batch processing, enabling photographers to improve multiple photos at a time. Depending on the size of photos and the power of your computer, it can process up to 4 GB of photos simultaneously. Based upon the same clear interface and simplicity of use that earned another Skylum product, Photolemur, the 2018 Red Dot Award, photographers now have access to a quick, one-click interface available in AirMagic. It allows photographers to put a unique spin on images with five different creative Styles to choose from. The software supports all popular image formats, including RAW files, and can also be used as a plugin for both Photoshop and Lightroom. 

Besides consumer use by enthusiasts, another important mission for aerial photography is in the field of public safety and even agriculture, enabling emergency personnel using drones to “see” further into disaster areas or companies to better visualize their crops or equipment. By improving the quality of any aerial image, AirMagic can provide additional fidelity and resolution for critical images. 

“We see our mission in creating easy-to-use yet powerful solutions for those who take photos. As experts in photo editing and AI technologies, we’ve created a unique, automated photo editing tool for aerial and drone photography. While drones are used by hobbyist and professional photographers alike, they’re also in growing usage in various fields ranging from safety and real estate to industrial and agricultural. I believe AirMagic will completely change the landscape for how aerial images are processed,” said  Alex Tsepko, CEO of Skylum.

 

 Pricing 

Mixed-computer households can share the same product key for Mac and PC which can be activated on 2 devices.

  • Standard pricing: $39/€39 for all new users
  • Limited offer: March 7-20 $39/€39 & bonuses ($145.99 value)

Bonuses:

  • Drone photography eBook by Skylum;
  • ‘Shoot Professional Photos With Any Drone’ video course;
  • AirMagic Premium Style;
  • Lume Cube lightning Kit for Drone ($40 discount);
  • Following its release, AirMagic will also be available for purchase at retailers such as B&H Photo and Amazon.com.
