Default (Relatively) affordable, compact medium format 100MP camera

I don't think I'll buy it, but this camera is quite affordable
(and compact) considering it's a 100MP medium format camera:

https://petapixel.com/2021/01/27/fuj...ls-the-medium-
format-gfx100s-102mp-5-axis-ibis-6000/

And it comes with IBIS.

It's even cheaper than the 50MP Sony A1, although of course you
can't compare these two cameras.

I wonder what they mean by "medium format" and "medium format video"?

In the film days, medium format was a 2.25" or 6cm wide negative. Common
sizes (at least common for me!) were 645 (6cm by 4.5cm), 6x6cm, 6x7cm,
and 6x9cm. The film would have been 120 or 220 size. Both are the same
width, but 220 film is twice as long as 120 for twice as many exposures.

Yes, I have a considerable amount of medium format film equipment, and
know what it refers to. I just don't see an analogy with this camera
beyond the aspect ratio of its screen. I doubt that the sensor is 6x6cm
or larger, and the 102mp resolution is well below that of MF film.

it's the same sensor size as the pentax 645d, one of the first medium
format digital cameras.

nobody said it was the same size as mf film.

nikon dx and canon ef-s cameras are not the same size as 35mm film
either.

its sensor is the same size as other medium format digital cameras,
such as the pentax 645d, which was released a decade ago.

and the 102mp resolution is well below that of MF film.


nonsense. 35mm size slrs have matched or exceeded mf film and this
should be capable of even better results.

The question should be; “Is anybody in this room contemplating buying one?”

I for one cannot justify spending $6K on this body, and then another considerable expense for GX glass.
