How Good is Fujifilm GFX100 Sensor Stabilization? “Earth Shadow Rising Above Barcroft Research Station”, 1/10 Second Handheld

How good is Fujifilm GFX100 Sensor Stabilization (IBIS)? Well, I’m impressed.

I discuss the making of this two-frame 137 megapixel panorama shot handheld.

Fujifilm GFX100: Making of a Handheld Panorama with IBIS at 1/10 Second: Earth Shadow From Above Barcroft

Includes images up to 137 megapixels of both the assembled panorama and the two frames that compose it.

This “road” looks easy, but only the most skilled mountain bikers with exceptional fitness and acclimatization to nearly 12500 feet can ascend it (much steeper than it looks, with loose gravel), and you had better have bike handling skills a cut well above to avoid dirt sampling when descending—it gets steeper and looser below. Dim light doesn't help. I was descending from the summit of White Mountain Peak (14252 ft / 4344m).

I was absolutely blown away by this image of yours - beautifully seen and executed. The colors and soft glow at sunset are rendered so naturally, it’s easy to believe (I’m) right there.

Viewing this (at 5112) and at 50% seems to work best on my iMac 5k.

I rented the GFX 50R twice (and the 50S once) before purchasing the 50R. The GFX 100 is out of my reach. I don’t regret the investment. I consistently see superior image quality over my A7R II, and I really love the focus stacking feature (I too snap a few additional frames at infinity). Thanks again for your wonderful coverage of today’s best equipment options for landscape photographers.

DIGLLOYD: that earth shadow rises quite quickly, so one has to act fast; it’s about position and color and brightness relative to the landscape. I got the GFX100 out of my daypack and grabbed the shot quick as I could. If I had taken the time to setup up my ultralight tripod, I probably would have lost the effect; it’s just right I think.

Yes, when clicking on an image on a Mac running at 2:1 display scaling, using 50% scaling means put N pixels into a box N/2 wide, which means actual pixels on an iMac 5K, assuming it is using 2:1 display scaling.
