Fujifilm GFX 100S PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Fujifilm GFX 100S? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Fujifilm makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the GFX 100S offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Fujifilm GFX 100S below.
In any case, the GFX 100S is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This mirrorless interchangeable lens camera was announced on January 27th, 2021, which means that, as of today, the camera is 606 days old (young?). Given that the GFX 100S is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Fujifilm product line-up.

What is the technology behind the imaging sensor in the GFX 100S?

What is the life expectancy of the shutter in the Fujifilm GFX 100S?

It should be noted, though, that this number represents a Mean Time before Failure. The shutter might fail earlier, or it might last longer.
