Fujifilm GFX 50S Mirrorless Medium Format Camera Body
Given the relationship between Hasselblad and Fujifilm it is no wonder that Fujifilm has now come to the market with the Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format (and Mirrorless) camera body.
Fujfilm didn't bother developing a full frame they blasted straight to Medium Format. The sensor in the Fujifilm GFX 50S is approximately 1.7 times the size of a full frame sensor. The Fujifilm GFX 50S has 51.4 megapixels, compare that to the 50mp of a Canon 5ds and you can appreciate the size of the pixels in the Fujifilm GFX 50S are much larger. About 1.7x larger in fact.
Why are the larger pixels of the Fujifilm GFX 50S important? Well the larger the pixel the less digital noise you would expect and this is clearly true with the Fujifilm GFX 50S.
The tonality range of the Medium Format Fujifilm GFX 50S means for example that you have more "blacks" in your shadows which can only mean that the rest of the image has depth, almost 3D depth.
With such a powerful sensor you will need the best quality lenses. Fujifilm is at the launch of the Fujifilm GFX 50S, releasing 3 lenses, namely the 32-64 or 24-50mm ish in full frame terms, a 120mm Macro (1:0.5) about 97mm in full frame speak and a 63mm (50mm). Fujifilm have 3 more lenses coming out as we head to towards our Australian winter 2017.
Is the Fujifilm GFX 50S just a Fuji X-T2? Well of course not however if you already familiar with the controls of the X-T2 you will have no difficulty using the Fujifilm GFX 50S.
I am not usually a fan of US video reviews but this one is just so warm and pleasant that I thought you might enjoy watching it.
Before we get into the Fujifilm GFX 50s official Specs / Features / blub, here is another video intro by a UK photographer.
The FUJIFILM GFX 50S delivers the world's best image quality. It combines outstanding resolution of 51.4 megapixels with exceptional tones, advanced color reproduction and high-performance lenses. This level of image quality is purely motivational. The world around you changes the moment you hold this camera in your hand. Appreciate all that can be achieved with Fujifilm's new medium format mirrorless camera system, GFX.

Fujifilm developed the FUJIFILM GFX 50S and the FUJINON GF Lenses series as a system for photographers that require even higher image quality than can be covered by the current X Series lineup.
The world's highest level of photographic image quality is produced by the integration of a large 43.8ｘ32.9mm CMOS sensor (FUJIFILM G Format) and image design technology cultivated by Fujifilm's 80+ year history.
FUJIFILM GFX 50S overturns common perceptions of traditional medium format digital cameras with a small, lightweight body made of magnesium alloy and equipped with an ultra-high definition detachable EVF adopting a 3.69M-dot organic EL panel.
The focal plane shutter has been newly developed specifically for our mirrorless camera. While achieving a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. (1/16000 sec. when using electronic shutter), a flash synchronization speed of 1/125 sec. or less, and high performance and durability with a shutter endurance supporting up to 150,000 shots*, the camera also achieves low vibration and a quiet shutter noise.
The following Full HD settings are supported for Movie Mode: 1920x1080 29.97p/25p/24p/23.98p 36Mbps. Users can shoot high quality movies making use of the excellent color reproduction thanks to the shallow depth of field that is unique to large sensors and Film Simulation modes.
Dedicated G Mount FUJINON GF Lenses inherit the design philosophy of reputable XF Lenses, achieving extremely high resolving power and rich tone reproduction. In addition to the A (Auto) Position setting that featured on the aperture ring in the X Series, a new C (Command Dial) Position has been added, allowing for the aperture value to be changed even from the camera body.
