Fuji teases 7 more GFX challenge videos to show off what it can do
Fujifilm seem to be going all out on the GFX hype, presenting us with a slew of videos. The first started in September with the initial announcement. We saw a few more new ones last week showing off its capabilities, and now they’ve released seven more. This time around, there seems to be a bit more of a focus on landscapes and commercial work.
So, in no particular order of preference we meet, Victor Liu, Minoru Kobayashi, Luciano Romano, Romeo Balancourt, Per-Anders Jörgensen, Ivan Joshua and Gary Heery. Each of them takes us through a typical shoot using the GFX. It seems that the mirrorless medium format camera could potentially offer some very stiff competition to higher end DSLRs as a daily workhorse.
It’s very cool to see the wide range of applications and styles the GFX is capable of handling. Of course, any tool can do wonders in the right hands. But when you hear them comparing the GFX to their regular gear, and some saying they could easily see this replacing their regular gear, you can’t help but be impressed.
Of course, with an estimated price tag of around $8,000, one would certainly hope it would be somewhat impressive.
So, have you been looking at stepping up to high end kit? Do you already shoot high end kit and have been considering switching? Are you convinced the GFX is the one for you? Or are you content to sit back and just lust after the camera you’ll never have? Let us know in the comments.
