Is the Fujifilm GFX 100S the Best Camera for Landscape Photography?

Fujifilm's GFX series of medium format mirrorless cameras caught the attention of the photography industry by bringing a lot of modern camera features to larger sensors and doing so at impressively modest prices. The GFX 100S epitomizes that by offering a ton of resolution, dynamic range, and image quality, all at a price that sits at the upper end of the full frame spectrum. Is it the ultimate camera for landscape photographers? This excellent video review takes a look.

Coming to you from fototripper, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm GFX 100S medium format mirrorless camera for landscape photography. The GFX 100S is one of the most intriguing cameras on the market right now. Whereas the original GFX 100 was impressively priced as far medium format cameras go, the GFX 100S kept almost all of its features, including that 102-megapixel sensor, and cut the price almost in half, with it now sitting at the upper end of full frame prices. That, along with other desirable features, like Fuji's lauded colors, make a strong case for the GFX 100S being one of the most desirable cameras for landscape photographers right now. Check out the video above for the full rundown on the camera.

I'm just curious Alex, did you actually watch the whole video you promoted? I mean 27minutes long of that!!! You recommend that to your readers - thanks for hating us!

You aren't a fan of the channel then no?

Easily my favorite YT channel!

It’s nowhere near my favourite but it’s also nowhere near what that guy is implying either

Even if your not interested in the camera, watch it anyway. Thoroughly enjoyable!

I tried to watch it , but I got tired of waiting for him to talk about the camera so I switched off .

I don't watch Gavin's videos for gear reviews, this one is worth watching for the scenery alone.

With one negative being the amount of people crowding around the lake in Canada, I prefer photography to be a more solitary endeavour.

It's probably the Phase One IQ4 - ignoring the part where you have to carry this stuff.

You tube means never having to write a script

Like my first car , a Rambler

Having watched Gavin for a couple of years, he says that he does have pre-written scripts.

Gavin is quite the funny guy, I love almost all of his videos. He really doesn't really review the camera, but does make a plea (more of a joke) for Fuji to let him keep the camera and lenses for a few years. I just recently purchased the GFX 100S myself, and love almost everything about it; my frustration with it is not being able to get a wide enough lens (but other manufacturers are in the same boat, with not being able to supply popular lenses).

Oh yeah this camera is bonkers. The cropping power is insane. You can crop huge panos from just one frame lol.

In the great outdoors, I've been switching to view scenes in mono with r and y lens simulation to get a sense of the true range of exposure value

I assume that the gfx 100s would work the same as my xt30
