Video on Fujifilm GFX 50S camera

Apparently, Fujifilm GFX 50S camera will have a video and it was shown with a HDMI monitor connected to the camera via HDMI. So far, there is no official specification at this point, it seems that it will only be HD resolution and not 4K due to the limitation of the sensor. Many photographers shooting fashion or commercial work might have appreciated a camera like this having 4K, enabling them to shoot video with similar shallow depth as their photos. The modular design of the Fujifilm GFX 50S is welcome and as sensor technology improves, it is hopefully this type of camera will have a 4K resolution video in the future.
