Interesting. That shot of the guy on the boat with the horse head holding the cat [at 1:02] must be at least 10 years old. It appeared in Seattle's alternate newspaper "The Stranger", along with several related photos, long before Fuji's big cameras were even a rumor. I think it was the cover shot. One of them was, and I specifically remember the cat and the horsehead.

Rewatching the video with the sound on, which I usually don't do, it seems a tiny bit less like Fuji is claiming credit for those images, but it is kinda-sorta implied.
OK found it: "The Stranger", October 31, 2007, with a link to his site: http://www.coreyfishes.com/

"Corey Arnold is a photographer and an Alaskan crab fisherman. I highly recommend that you go to his website right now and click through every single photo on there. You won’t be disappointed. And no, I can’t imagine what circumstances could have possibly led to this: 1708cover.jpg"

The image is no longer available there. It was probably the cat shot, but you can look at this instead: http://www.coreyfishes.com/albums/human-animals/content/last-days-of-summer/lightbox/ or this collection: http://www.coreyfishes.com/albums/fish-work-bering-sea/

Sorry, but I think you will enjoy using the Fujifilm GFX100s, Mike (although I think it's already quite thoroughly "reviewed”). I’ve been in the GFX system since it was introduced and switched from the GFX50s to the GFX100s last April. Of the three medium-format digital systems I regularly use Fuji’s GFX is undeniably the most versatile and the most user-friendly. The 100s will feel much like a regular DSLR, able to go anywhere and tackle any job. But it is a slower machine than today’s smaller cameras. The soft "ka-thunk" of its shutter will be the most jarring aspect to get used to, I think; it feels like something just fell inside the camera.

Is the medium-format digital tech of the GFX100s really worth the extra expense and bulk compared to the top full-frames? For most hobbyists probably not. A good full-frame system would more than fill their high-resolution bills. But that aside, the GFX is the best all-around medium-format choice where strobe sync / leaf shutters and other clinical studio issues aren’t a factor. It’s an X-T3/4…on super steroids.
