The Fujifilm GFX 100 II leans into video more than any previous medium format camera, with capabilities including full-width 4K capture for a series of lens formats, 8K capture from a cropped region, ProRes 422 capture to SSD and the inclusion of waveforms and vectorscopes. You can find out all the details in our initial review of the camera.
We knew it’d be a while until we could get the camera back to the studio, but couldn’t resist seeing how practical it would be to document a quiet walk in Derbyshire’s beautiful Peak District. The GFX can’t read out its entire sensor for its 4K modes, so we wanted to see what the output looked like, using the largest region of the sensor we could: the UHD 4K mode for GF lenses.

Meanwhile, it seemed senseless to carry the new Fujifilm GF 30mm F5.6 T/S and Fujifilm GF 55mm F1.7R WR back from the launch in Stockholm and not use them, so, during the breaks in the rain, technical editor Richard Butler used both lenses to expand the GFX 100 II sample gallery. The images are mostly towards the end of the gallery and include images using both the tilt and shift functions of the 30mm lens, and the 55mm in less-than-perfect lighting.
