    Screen and Viewfinder

    Tilting Touchscreen

    Fujifilm GFX 100 II has a 3.2" Tilting touchscreen with 2,360k dots resolution which is quite high by today's standards. Tilting screen makes this camera very useful for photography purposes but not so useful for video shooting.


    Electronic (OLED) Viewfinder

    Camera has a built-in 0.64" Electronic (OLED) viewfinder with 9,440k dots resolution. It has a 100% coverage and 1x (1.27x 35mm equivalent) magnification.

    Sensor

    BSI-CMOS Sensor

    Fujifilm GFX 100 II features a 102 megapixel Medium Format BSI-CMOS sensor with dimensions of 43.8 x 32.9 mm and a total area of 1441 mm2. Its native ISO range is Still: 80 - 12,800
    Movie: 100 - 12,800 and expands to Still: 40 - 102,800
    Movie: 100 - 25,600 in boosted mode.

    The camera has BSI-CMOS sensor, short for Backside Illuminated Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor sensor. In traditional CMOS sensors, the wiring and circuitry are located on the front side of the sensor, which can block some of the incoming light. BSI technology flips this design by placing the photosensitive elements (pixels) on the backside of the sensor, allowing more light to reach the pixels. This significantly enhances light sensitivity and improves low-light performance. BSI-CMOS sensors are particularly effective in low-light conditions, as they can capture more light, resulting in brighter and less noisy images. This makes them well-suited for indoor and night photography. BSI-CMOS sensors deliver a higher SNR and reduced cross-talk.

    Photography Features

    Camera is equipped with X-Processor 5 processor and can take pictures up to 11648 x 8736 resolution.


    Lens Mount

    Fujifilm GFX 100 II has Fujifilm G lens mount. Due to Medium Format sensor its crop factor (also called lens multiplier) is 0.79x. This means that a 35mm equivalent focal length of the mounted lens will be equal to its actual focal length times 0.79.


    No Low-Pass Filter

    There is no optical low-pass filter (OLPF), also known as an anti-aliasing filter, in front of the sensor. This results in a slightly sharper image but may also introduce moiré patterns and aliasing artifacts when photographing subjects with fine, repetitive patterns or details.


    In-Body Image Stabilization

    The camera has a built-in 5-Axis Sensor Shift in-body image stabilization (IBIS) with 8 stops of compensation. This means that you are still getting vibration reduction when camera is paired with non-image stabilizied lenses. It also works with lenses with optical image stabilization and in combination can achieve even better compensation.
