  1. Hi! Not sure I understand the benefits of using an anamorphic lens with this camera over on a full frame like the fx3. If the anamorphic lens is for Full frame coverage (or even super35), what is the benefit of a larger sensor? You can get "even wider"?

  2. SOny Nikon Canon FF has Profesional Cameras not semi professional, just because you hv Medium Format doenst make other FF cameras are semi Pro, insted true profesional use mostly FF , only some rare kind of shooter have this Medium format bodies

  3. I wonder when Becca (and the rest of @TheVerge) will do a collaboration with @MKBHD @Studio crew on cameras. It feels like the two would make some interesting collaboration videos on cameras.

  4. Seems like a great camera, I'm glad it exists, big props to Fuji. Great video too, minus the "Micro Four Thirds is going out of style" bit. 👎👎👎 I guess you missed the G9 II release?? M/43 definitely is not going out of style. As someone who seems to understand sensor sizes involve trade offs you should realize that MFT exists for a reason and has its benefits.

  5. I'm a huge Fuji fanboy, but I have to say I was pretty disappointed with this release:

    – The design is 10/10. Sexy AsF.
    – Improved Autofocus

    – Sensor is still too slow to utilize medium format for video (either lots of rolling shutter or uses a big crop which defeats the purpose of medium format)
    – Worse or comparable photo quality to the cheaper 100S (faster sensors typically have worse dynamic range)
    – No dual CFX slots; anyone spending this much on cameras and lenses is going to want redundant cards, and the SD card slot is going to mean you're not going to be able to have redundant storage in certain modes that require too much bandwidth. People spending well over $1000 on camera gear are not going to gripe about the extra cost of CFX cards.

    Basically, it's still too slow to be seriously considered for any professional fast shooting or video, and doesn't offer much if any improvement in photo quality over the much cheaper 100S. I can't think of any reason to get this over the older and cheaper 100S.

  6. Kinda disappointed you didn't at all touch on the crops in the video mode. You made it sound like people would be getting medium format anamorphic, but the crop ends up recording on only a (roughly) full frame section of the sensor. Pretty much defeats the purpose of spending all that extra money to get a medium format camera for video.

  7. Thanks for the excellent review. One of the main atteactions of high-end Fujifilm cameras is access to the world of Fujinon lenses. I'd love a video on their range of medium format lenses available for this camera.

  8. I absolutely swear, David!! Your passion and enthusiasm shine through when tackling complex photography/videography and camera topics. It not only makes them enjoyable to comprehend but also helps most viewers truly appreciate them. 👏📸 Keep up the fantastic work! You're onto something truly special! 🌟

  9. 'That medium format look' Well other medium format users will tell you that its very hard to see the difference between normal and biger sensor pictures. Especially on small screens. You will notice a difference on very large prints. What is true, is that it can maintain alot more data from a file, so its much easier to edit blown out skies or recover shadows for example.

    And don't forget that the file sensor produces enormes RAW files. This makes the camera and editing proces much slower than and Canon R5 for example. So it depends on the subject you taking pictures off.

  10. It blows my mind the fact that they managed to put a 100mpx sensor inside that tiny body (keep i n mind that for the entirety of the review he keeps the battery grip on) and still made it capable of doing 8K video and 4k60 with a very high birtrate. As an amateur I can’t afford this or the previous model, but I understand it’s a real bargain for its price compared to hasselblad or even other Fuji medium format cameras.

  11. Seems like the YouTube reviewers community are not so happy with you “exposing” this product before it’s release date… playing with different rules ?

  12. It’s an apsc 33x44mm medium format camera, not even a 645 sensor, and nowhere near a 6×7 or 6×9 camera… that being said digital doesn’t need such big sensors because the images are way cleaner and more detailed than film anyways. A 10mp CCD sensor already outperformed 35mm slide film.
    the 44x33mm apsc medium format performs better than 6×9 film too.
    The only downside is the colors and textures out of camera than remain a bit flat in comparison with the way the light « burns or prints » on film. The Foveon sensor is maybe the closest ressemblance with film in the digital field.

  13. hey David. I have to admit I really love the videos you're making. They are so well structured and organized. You always find a way to break the topic down for us in such a manner, that I don't feel like an idiot watching something I had no idea existed 🙂 Thanks for the video, cheers.

  14. for pure photographer i will always prefer the Hassy… just because of the lenses…. i tried the 50 II and the old 100 when they came out…. and i don't know if they released new lenses by now…. but they were just a let down… not that they were bad…. but just odd zoom ranges and slow lenses with variable aperture made me sad…. And until Sony, Fuji, Canon or Nikon give us waveforms or vector scopes in camera i would not even consider them for video… i don't want to lug around a monitor all day…. so for hybrid cameras…. Panasonic is still king and probably will stay there

  15. I personally think that the medium format look claim is a rather nebulous myth. I’m not seeing anything here that couldn’t be achieved with a fast full frame prime – particularly an f1.2.
