    "That's not a knife. This is a knife."

    The sensor is slightly wider than Monstro, and does full-width 4K. The camera is about the same size as a high end DSLR, yet offers so much more per cubic inch. The sensor is not just bigger than VistaVision (or "full frame" as photographers would call it) but it is stabilized. Yes, a medium format digital camera has IBIS. It shoots at 5fps with continuous tracking AF. The files are slightly finer than a 100Mpx Phase One, yet it costs less than half.

    This camera is not quite my cup of tea, but its price:performance ratio is jaw-dropping. Fujifilm believes in competition, and in kicking heads. Good! What Sony did to Nikon's and Canon's high speed DSLRs, Fujifilm did to pretty much everything from the D850 to the Phase One and Leica S. Phew!

    No RAW nor 8K, but if you have a reason to prefer large format cinematography, you might want to think about this camera.

    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    It looks like that the 4k video is a downscale and a pixel binning 50.5 million pixels (50% of the 102 million pixels resolution)

    DOF just isn't shallow enough = I'm waiting for the 4x5 sensor 41,000 x 31,000 1,200 megapixel. :-)

    Its a marketing problem for sure. Definitely is a Large Format in the cinema world. Full frame and larger is fare game for "large format"

    The Fujifilm GFX-100 sounds like an impressive 102-megapixel medium format mirrorless camera with 5.5 stops of in-body image stabilization.

    Thus is the tale of our industry exploring wretched terminology and standards. The film world used to be relatively simple and digital came in and borked the game.

    APS designations were sensible enough, then the calamity of "Full Frame", which in the film world only used to mean the full frame of a given format.

    During all the digital medium format has virtually been the wild west. As those sensors are generally costly to make in the face of the smaller sensor/broader market, companies explored a whole lot of larger than 135 still film. Quickly in that market anything wider than 36mm became medium format, which has typically been in the 40-54mm wide territory.

    Film-wise we had mainly 65mm 5-perf and the larger negative of 70mm 15-perf IMAX. There's been a host of other formats in there like 65mm 8-perf and even a wider than 8-perf VistaVision transport briefly.

    If I was king of the world, particularly for the motion picture infustry, I would go with + designation if something was slightly larger, which is how I handle it on my info graphics. For instance S35 means one thing, S35+ plus alludes to another, meaning bigger than S35 but smaller than VistaVision.

    Alas my journey to over take the thrown was thwarted by a dragon who really disliked chairs, thrones, and really any seating technology. But I remain diligent in helping explain format sizes in an easier way and not luring people into a dungeon of "medium format" when they are only getting VV+ and not really "medium format".

    That said, the camera is cool and it's need to see Fujifilm avoided the fairly populated FF35 market. Mostly my interest would be stills in this case.

    I await a real challenger in this arena when it comes to digital cinema, but it's truly difficult to actually do right.
