The Fujifilm GFX 50S Mirrorless Camera Revealed!

Fujifilm officially announced the availability of the Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format mirrorless camera. The Fujifilm GFX 50S is based on their existing Fujifilm X Series, but uses a large medium format (43.8 x 32.9 mm) sensor instead of an APS-C sensor. It also uses the new Fujifilm G mount.

Fujifilm also introduced the first slew of FUJINON GF lenses for the new G mount – the FUJINON GF63mmF2.8 R WR, the FUJINON GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR and the FUJINON GF120mmF4 R LM OIS WR Macro. Let’s check them out!

 

Fujifilm GFX 50S Tech Briefing By Makoto Oishi

To introduce the new Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format mirrorless camera, Makoto Oishi, the Product Planning Manager of the Fujifilm Optical Device & Electronic Imaging Products Division, flew in all the w ay from Tokyo to give a presentation on its key features.

Here is a selection of its key features :

Medium Format Sensor – 1.7X The Size Of Full Frame Sensors

The Fujifilm GFX 50S has a 51.4 MP medium format sensor measuring 43.8 mm x 32.9 mm. The medium format sensor is 70% larger than full frame 35 mm sensors. The size of the sensor is not its only virtue though.

Both the shape of the light-gathering micro-lenses and the processing from the photodiodes have been customized to achieve a high level of sharpness and broad dynamic range.

X Processor Pro Image Processing Engine

The Fujifilm GFX 50S uses the same X Processor Pro image processing engine used in the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujifilm X-T2 cameras, delivering the same Film Simulation color reproduction. The Movie function supports Full HD recording at 30p, with no post-processing by using the Film Simulation modes.

Compact Magnesium Alloy Body 

The body of the Fujifilm GFX 50S weighs 920 g. When paired with the GF63mmF2.8 R WR, it weighs 1,230 g. That sounds heavy, but it’s approximately 40% lighter than a medium format DSLR camera! In fact, it weighs about the same as a full-frame DSLR camera.

High Resolution Viewfinder & Touchscreen Display

The Fujifilm GFX 50S has a detachable 3.69 MP electronic viewfinder, that can be tilted to 90° when shooting horizontal landscapes and ±45° when shooting in the portrait position, when used with the separately sold EVF-TL1 EVF tilt adapter. It also has a 3.2″ touch display panel with 2.36 million pixels that can be tilted 225°.

New Large Diameter G Mount

The new G mount used by the Fujifilm GFX 50S has a short flange back mount with a large diameter of 65 mm and a flange back of 26.7 mm. This design improves the optical design of the lenses, greatly contributing to higher image quality and the miniaturization of the body.

New FUJINON Lenses

The new FUJINON GF lens series are specifically designed for the new G mount, and have the resolving power capable of supporting a 100 MP sensor. Their lens barrel also features an aperture ring similar to that of the FUJINON XF lenses.

A new C (Command) Position has been added to the aperture ring. It allows users to change the aperture using the command dial on the camera’s body. In order to prevent incorrect operation, the A (Auto) Position and the C Position feature a locking button on the aperture ring that must be disabled to implement changes.

 

Fujifilm GFX 50S Price & Availability
