This flagship device offers you 102 megapixels, GFX100 boasts up a sensor which is considerably larger than you’d find on a full-frame, 35mm format camera. The company has worked on a whole new sensor to power the high-end camera.
The new 102MP CMOS is merged with Fujifilm X-Processor 4 processing engine to smoothly handle all those pixels. The camera comes with a new Smooth skin effect function that would be helpful in toning your skin, it saves the photographer’s time in the editing phase. Moving on, GFX100 includes a sensor as huge as 43.9 x 32.9 mm.

Overall measurements of the camera are 6.15 x 6.44 x 4.05 inches but it becomes slims to 1.93-inches at the thinnest parts. Inside the camera, there is an integrated vertical chip other than that it is packed with two batteries, a memory card, and the EVF. This makes the weight of the device approximately three pounds.
