Fujifilm GFX 50S

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is an affordable medium format camera with superb image quality and a forward-thinking mirrorless design.

Medium format image sensor. 51MP resolution. Crisp, modular EVF. Tilting, touch LCD. Dust- and moisture-resistant design. Film Simulation modes. Dual UHS-II card slots. Wi-Fi. USB-tethered shooting.

Quirky EV compensation control. Limited lens selection at launch. Modest 1/125-second flash sync.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is the best medium format camera you can buy in this price range, and earns our Editors' Choice. It doesn't do some things that high-end medium format cameras do—the Phase One XF 100MP is our favorite in the high-priced realm and...

Fujifilm GFX 50S Review

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is a compact system camera with a 51.4 megapixel 43.8mm x 32.9mm medium-format CMOS sensor. The weatherproof GFX 50S features Raw images with 14-bit color depth and 14 stops of dynamic range, ISO range of 50-102400, 1080p video...

The Fujifilm GFX 50S magically offers medium-format image quality in a camera body that's comparable in size and weight to a 35mm full-frame DSLR. Being able to use a camera with such a large sensor both in and out of a studio environment is something...

Fujifilm GFX Review

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S and its over 50-megapixel medium format sensor deliver excellent image quality and resolving power. The mirrorless camera offers decent performance for its class, but its superb imaging capabilities come with compromises, such as...

Fantastic image quality across the board; Excellent RAW dynamic range; Superb high ISO performance; Functional and user-friendly body; Robust weather-sealed construction; Detachable EVF; Tilting touchscreen; Very good lens quality

Slow AF speeds; Performance can't compete with high-end full-frame cameras; Limited native lens selection so far; Expensive accessories; Unimpressive JPEG dynamic range; 1/125s maximum flash sync

Fuji GFX 50S Medium Format Priced at $6500

 

Fuji previously showed off the new GFX 50S medium format camera and new lenses back at Photokina 2016. Pricing was the big question on everyone's mind and Fuji is hitting a pretty good price point at $6500, which comes in below the relatively...

Fuji GFX 50S is a New 51MP Medium Format Camera

 

I asked a couple months ago whether Fuji would be the one to kick off the coming medium format revolution? With today's announcement of the Fuji GFX system in development, we're closer to finding that out.

Absolutely not for volume shooters.
