Let’s go for another compare-apples-to-pears post.
It seems the iPhone 11 inspires people to compare it to professional and much more expensive photographic gear. After a comparison with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, here is another user, Josh Rossi, better known as Photoshop Dad, who compares his medium format Fujifilm GFX 100 to the iPhone 11.
In this video, I’ll be comparing the iPhone 11 Pro with the Fujifilm GFX 100. The Fuji medium format camera costs right around $13,000 with the body and lens and is one of the best cameras out there today. The sensor size alone is 1/3 the size of the entire iPhone 11 just for comparison.
Initially, I didn’t want to even compare the two because I thought that the GFX was going to win by a long shot. I was totally surprised when I did the comparison and saw the results on the computer. Even though the more expensive camera obviously wins this battle, the iPhone 11 Pro gave surprising results especially if the viewer isn’t zooming in super close to the image.
I got really excited about it and decided to try and recreate a movie poster. I’ve wanted to do this test for years but Apple’s technology wasn’t up to par yet. Once again I was surprised at the results that were created. I think that the image quality of the iPhone is good enough to print on a billboard, post on social media and even use on big campaigns.
Once more, you have to guess the camera that shot the picture. Enjoy.[via Bored Panda]
Most of us think Canon has the best color science of all players in the industry. Period. Many of us think Fujifilm follows close up.
Denae & Andrew posted a rather interesting video where they compare Canon and Fujifilm colors. They used a Canon EOS RP and a Fujifilm X-T3 for the test. Both raw and JPEG files are compared, though it makes more sense with JPEG images in our opinion (at 5:37min in the video). One thing I like a lot in Fujfilm cameras are the film simulations. Wish Canon would feature something similar on their cameras.
According to the comments to the video, people seem to like Canon colors more. What do you think?

Here at Canon Watch we like Fujifilm cameras a lot, and the Fujifilm X-T3 seems to be exactly what we were expecting. A great camera.
From the conclusion:
The Fujifilm X-T3 is arguably the best stills/video camera on the market right now. More expensive full frame cameras will offer better still image quality and cameras with in-body image stabilization will be easier to shoot video with, but nothing offers this balance of image quality and movie capability in a single package.
Even better, the X-T3 does both things in a way that makes them enjoyable. The X-T series has already established a fan-base of photographers with its traditional, dedicated-dial interface but, while this can also be used for video, we’d recommend using the (still fiddly) Movie Silent Control mode if you’re switching back and forth, since it allows separate exposure settings for each style of shooting.
With the X-T3, you get excellent JPEGs with some of the industry’s most attractive color options, access to an extensive selection of dedicated lenses, only now with improved autofocus and class-leading video. Crucially, none of the video features get in the way of its excellence as a stills camera. Read the review here…
Fujifilm really did a lot if not everything right with their mirrorless cameras, starting with the lens ecosystem. While we prefer Canon’s color science we agree that Fujifilm’s color science is very good.
The Fujifilm X-T3 is just a really great mirrorless camera, and before wasting your money on excessively expensive full frame mirrorless systems we’d recommend you have a look to see if the Fujifilm X-T3 fulfils your needs. Most likely it does.
