How Does the Powerful Fujifilm GFX 100 Hold Up for Landscape Photography?

The Fujifilm GFX 100 is a stunning camera in many ways, and its ultra-high sensor resolution and fantastic dynamic range make it seemingly tailor-made for landscape photography. This great video takes a look at an experienced landscape photographer's use of the camera and his thoughts on how it holds up for such work. 

Coming to you from Adam Gibbs, this excellent video takes a look at the Fujifilm GFX 100 medium format camera and how it performs for landscape photography work. The GFX 100 is certainly an amazing camera for many applications, and its ability to capture stunningly high levels of detail with loads of dynamic range make it a strong option for landscape photographers. Add in Fuji's fantastic colors and film simulations, and the case for it becomes even stronger. I personally absolutely adored shooting with it, and the files are a joy to work with. On the other hand, it is a very expensive camera, and matching glass will also set you back considerably as well, and you might be wondering if that added cost is worth it over cheaper options and if the image quality advantages will make that big a difference. Check out the video above for Gibbs' full thoughts.

I’d be worried if it didn’t.

As much as I admire, respect, and lookup to Adam, I have to take issue with his claims of the weather sealing, though many photographers are just towing the company line here on this one...

The recent Lens Rentals teardown of this camera showed it has HORRENDOUSLY BAD weather sealing, completely missing any sort of sealing around many of the top controls.

I also don't get this train of thought "medium format slows me down", does one not have enough self-discipline to slow oneself down? You need a $13,000 CAD camera to force you to do that???

I have a FF camera, and I have no issue slowing down, examining a scene, and taking my time before even taking the first test shot...

it slows you down cause it's a big ass camera. there's no way you can walk as fast with a brick like that.
