News of Fujifilm working on a 100-megapixel camera has been around since Photokina 2018 last September. Finally, only last month, it was unveiled. The Fuji GFX 100 is Fujifilm’s latest flagship mirrorless medium format camera. The folks from Cinema5D got the opportunity to travel to Japan to see the birth of this new camera and monitor its development.
Naturally, they shot video so the rest of us could take a peek. This is just the first part of a two-part series on the making of the GFX 100. Part one deals with the design and development of the camera, while part two will see the factory where the camera is actually made.
The 17-minute video above is, as mentioned, the first of a two-part series covering the development and production of the Fuji GFX 100. In the videos, Cinema5D co-founder, Johnnie Behiri talks to executives, engineers and designers around Japan to talk about the development they were actively involved in.
It is a really fascinating insight into how devices like cameras come to be.
