Fuji X summit in London had a lot of exciting announcements – one of which is an absolutely bonkers 400 MP mode coming to the GFX 100 through a firmware update.
Fujifilm has a great track record of supporting their cameras via firmware updates but this one really takes things to a whole new level. The company is planning to use Pixelshift technology with “Sub-μm order control” to get to 400 Megapixels.
You can watch the full video below which also includes announcements for new lenses and their roadmap for the future. 400MP does beg the question though – how much is enough?
Does the extra processing power required justify the perhaps marginal improvement in image quality? We expect photographers to keep this 400MP mode for a small set of photos and not use it all the time.
