Why make an exoskeleton for the FUJIFILM GFX100?

Based in Switzerland, our brand has a history in professional imaging for more than 70 years. We are toolmakers dedicated to serving photographers and artists all over the world. Recognizing the photographic industry development and listening to our friends from all over the world, we started to think about branching into the world of moving images.

After our award-winning technology demonstration in the 65mm digital cinema camera solution ALPA PLATON and the professional lens series SWITAR, we now bring you ALPA XO - the Exoskeleton for the FUJIFILM GFX100.

Why? We immediately fell in love with the FUJIFILM GFX100 after its announcement to the market. It combines the ease of use of a modern DSLR or DSLM with a fantastic viewfinder, 5-axis-in-body-image-stabilization, and the incredible resolution of 102 megapixels! Such a versatile and powerful package has never been more affordable.
This new creative tool – a fully weatherproofed medium format camera – enables photographers to take on entirely new challenges. To undertake outdoor challenges and innovative expeditions, your GFX100 needs to be protected. No matter what you want to explore with your GFX100, we wanted to offer you the right tool.

When we noticed the GFX100 capabilities in capturing moving images, we were blown away. Internal 10bit F-Log recording of UHD and DCI 4K at 400mbit/s is impressive on its own, but even more important is the image recording area due to the sensor size.

For comparison, an ALEXA MINI shooting UHD (3840x2160 pixels) uses an active recording area with an image circle of 30,29mm, and an ALEXA LF uses 36,35mm. No comparison to the FUJIFILM GFX100 in contrast, as it uses 50,25mm. And it gets even better than that. The GFX100 surpasses even the mighty ALEXA 65 in this regard, which is using an image circle of 48,47mm with a maximum of 1'020mm² image recording area (in 16:9 - 5-perf 65mm) with the GFX100 leading at 50,25mm image circle or 1'079mm² of recording area in UHD mode.

We weren't the only ones who were impressed – many of our friends in cinematography asked us to develop a solution. They wanted to make use of all the fantastic possibilities. And here it is. It is called ALPA XO.
