Fujifilm South Africa has announced the Fujifilm GFX100 II featuring the newly-developed GFX 102MP CMOS II HS high-speed image sensor consisting of 102-million pixels.

The mirrorless camera is powered by the high-speed X-Processor 5 image processing engine, which in combination with the sensor provide double the signal readout speed compared to 2021’s Fujifilm GFX100S.

The GFX100 II is capable of continuous shooting of up to 8 frames per second, up from 5 fps on the previous GFX model.

It is also the first GFX Series mirrorless digital camera that features Fujifilm’s AI-based subject-detection AF, developed with Deep Learning technology. The use of an improved algorithm has evolved not only Face/Eye Auto Focus (AF) but now allows photographers to automatically track animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, aeroplanes, trains, insects and drones. Once again, this benefits sports photography, which requires advanced tracking capability to track a subject that moves quickly within the frame.

The GFX100 II supports 8K/30P video recording, plus it can also record 4K/60P 4:2:2 10-bit video internally and features F-Log2, broadening post-production flexibility.
