Thanks Alan, look great on my 5K P3 panel too
Yep, I've never been one to complain about one camera not being able to do what another can - for the most part. Just, as you know, I have a need for some pretty big images from time to time & having a camera as handy to operate as the GFX100s is make's me stop and think. It's really a lovely experience to shoot with, much easier going than the 100mp. Just feels good in my hands and great when I have to pace it up with a few lenses, it's tiny in comparison.
A couple off weeks later ( I had the camera pre launch ) and I'm still in awe of it, shooting it again and only feels better. It's gone back too Fuji again as I was asked to go shoot something a few days ago and took it out on the street for a bit. It will be a while before I get my hands on one but I have a handful of shots I'll post up here as time allows. For cost reasons a 50mp sensor would be nice but the main advantages is that PDAF and true 16bit files (OK also the IBIS), and two of those simply can't make it with the old sensor, either way a new sensor would be needed so might as well big up the pixels for those of us how have the need. I did work up an image from the 50r a few days for a friend who was on a tight deadline and traveling so not much time to do it himself - nothing wrong with that sensor either despite it's age so if you sent need the 11924x8866 pixels of resolution, the IBIS, the WR, the PDAF, the soft shutter button and sound etc.. the GFX50r a great option to get into medium format at a budget.
No idea of sales orders, can't imaging they will be huge as no medium format camera is but probably a lot more than any Hassy or Pentax (or Phase either I guess). The only point is Fuji are happy with the pre oder number so a second batch will continue. For me it's at least a five year camera if I buy my own one that is but that is not going to happen this year.
Have to go shoot some video tomorrow and leaving the Fony's at home. Just going to shoot with a couple of X-T3's and a couple of small mics plus the Rode Go transmitters. A few static interview/sound bites and then it'll be all gimbal work, leaving my glidecam sled at home (probably) as I need to up the use of the gimbal a bit more. Thinking of using HLG in DCI 4K 25fps (Europe speak for 24fps), from what I've tested the HLG looks amazing much nicer than F-Log (or S-Log) and just as tone-able too. I'm not having to edit (thankfully) so might have to drop back out of h.265 10bit 422 but hopefully not.
