Today at Fujifilm’s Global X Summit, the company announced two new cameras, including the new GFX 100S, the company’s most compact large-format camera yet.

Weighing in at 1.9 pounds, the GFX 100S is closer to the size of a traditional DSLR than its older siblings, the standard GFX 100. However, despite the body being 30 percent smaller, the GFX 100S still has a massive 102-MP sensor with a new improved in-body image stabilization system that saves up to 6-stops of shake reduction.

With so much of Fujifilm’s camera, the GFX 100S comes with 19 different film simulation filters, including the brand new nostalgic neg. The filter that looks to recreate the color and amber highlights of the vermilion seen in photographs from the 1970s.

However, to make the GFX 100S so small, Fujifilm had to make some compromises, such as removing support for an optional battery grip. On the bright side, thanks to the use of a new NP-W235 battery, the GFX100S should be able to shoot about 460 photos on a single charge, compared to around 400 for the standard GFX100 (on one battery).

Alternatively, if 100-MP is more than you really need, Fujifilm is also launching the XE-4, which is like a cross between one X100 And X-s10 But not with stabilization in the body. Featuring a 26.1-MP sensor weighing just 0.8 pounds, Fujifilm says the XE-4 is the most compact camera that supports interchangeable lenses in the X-Series lineup.
