TL/DR version: pretty, pretty far ;-)
I had the honour of doing a demo with the GFX100 during the camera’s launch events in The Netherlands and Belgium. During the demo in Belgium, which took place in the incredible Lites Studios, I wanted to showcase both the IBIS feature and the ability to recuperate underexposed images. In fact, the ‘postprocessability’ – if that is even a term – of the GFX files is probably what I like best about them, even more than the resolution. In the video below, you’ll see me increase the image’s Exposure by more than three stops and apply a liberal dose of positive Shadows. So… how does the GFX100 hold up?
I’m by no means a Capture One expert, but I wanted to try C1 as Lightroom’s support for the GFX100 is still preliminary. I have to say I was amazed by the quality of the output. The good news is that, if you’re interested in exploring C1 as an option for editing your Fujifilm files, it’s currently 50 percent off! I don’t know how long this will last – the discount was actually supposed to end April 30th, so we might be running on empty – but at the time of writing this blog post, the discount was still active. By using this affiliate link you can help me produce free tutorials like this one without any extra cost to you! Contrary to Lightroom, C1 is still available as a traditional ‘perpetual’ license, with optional upgrades. It’s also available as a subscription. From what I’ve understood – but don’t quote me on that – the discount applies to the entire lifetime of your subscription, and not just to the first year.
