DigitalRev Fujifilm GFX First Look: “It’s just Phenomenal” + Why it Needs No X-Trans… and A Lot More!

Fujifilm GFX50S Hands-on First Impressions at digitalrev youtube

  • AF Speed is decent, but not extraodrinaly fast
  • Shutter sound is quite
  • We can’t take images out of the camera, but I can just tell you from looking through the viewfinder… it’s awesome!
  • well balanced and easier than some high end DSLR’s
  • Full Frame Video is dead ;)

Ok, before I share the next bunch of GFX tidbits, I really recommend you to check back this article by Rico Pfirstinger. Once you’ve read it, I will promise you will know everything that is possible to know about the Fujifilm GFX… and also about its future development. It’s a 360° overview, with really nothing left behind. You’ll basically know everything after reading it.

Fujifilm GFX Roundup

The Japanese site dc.watch (translation) shared its hands-on article with a lot of images, for example:

  • GFX is equipped to support leaf shutter lenses. Fuji has no current plans to release leaf shutter lenses or adapters, but will release the specs to support other manufacturers to do so.
  • image of the little LCD on the Top (that never turns off) here
  • image of the accessory and battery door here
  • the battery here
  • Dual SD-card slot here
  • the detachable EVF here
  • body without EVF here

Adorama had a short interview with Fuji Guy Billy here:

  • It’s called GFX. G (our MF heritage) F (heritage in film and film simulations) X (X-DNA – dials, design etc.)
  • Traditionally, X-series cameras use X-Trans sensors without low-pass filter. So you can achieve very sharp images reducing moiree. But the big GFX 50MP Medium Format Bayer sensor allows Fuji do get rid of the low-pass filter without having moiree.
  • It is a customized sensor by Fujifilm

Newsshooter had a talk with Theo, from Fujifilm UK. Amongst the others, he says here:

  • We went Medium Format, because with Full Frame we would have cannibalized our APS-C line
  • We think the GFX will appeal more to Full Frame DSLR user rather than just traditional Medium Format users
  • It will have video, but no quality announcement so far (but Rico has the answer)

Fujifilm GFX 50S * The Facts & The Future…. and about Leaf Shutter Lenses, Electronic Shutter, Touch Screen & more!

Fujifilm GFX 50S – The Facts & The Future

Rico Pfirstinger made the point of the situation regarding the Fujifilm GFX… and gives really interesting insights. For example you will discover in his article that:

  • the sensor is similar to the one of the Hasselblad X1D (made by Sony), but Fuji tweaked it in order to improve it
  • the final version will very likely have also electronic shutter
  • Touch Screen LCD
  • Dual SD Cards UHS-II
  • Full-HD with 30 fps
  • Contrast Detection AF algorythm is already surprisingly snappy. Best with lenses with Inner Focussing
  • Bad News: only the GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR zoom lens has the inner focussing
  • shooting intervals of 700 ms
  • EVF: 3.69 megadots with a magnification of 0.85x (X-T1/2: 0.77x) with frame rate of around 60 fps
  • support for tethering with various RAW converters
  • RGB color histograms in the live view.
  • There will be a range of adapters to connect third-party lenses to the GFX 50S, including leaf shutter lenses for studio and flash work.

And there is a lot more to read at fuji-x-secrets.net… enjoy :)


  • A medium format camera for pros and mere mortals alike? Hands On with the Fuji GFX! at imaging-resource: “The GFX features a substantial handgrip with a nice contour, allowing it to fit in my hand very well. The camera felt very balanced and secure. In fact, this might be one of the few medium format cameras you can shoot one-handed if you want!.”
  • Full Press Event recorded by Matt Granger on youtube
  • The new Fuji GFX medium format that I won’t buy at aevansphoto (thoughts on the GFX – not tested)
  • Fujifilm’s new GFX is a giant camera sensor wrapped in an accessible body at TheVerge: “The GFX 50S is far smaller and lighter than you might expect

Medium Format Fujifilm GFX 50S :: Full Press Conference Video + Additional Coverage (and NEW Images) + NEW INSTAX 1:1

shared at the Fujifilm GFX Facebook Group

Time to make some order.

Fujifilm just announced the Fujifilm GFX 50S, a 50MP mirrorless Medium Format Camera. It will be launched along with 3 lenses in early 2017. Overall Fuji has 6 lenses in the raodmap.

  • Standard prime “GF63mmF2.8 R WR” (equivalent to 50mm in the 35mm format)
  • Wide-angle standard zoom “GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR” (equivalent to 25-51mm in the 35mm format)
  • Mid-telephoto macro 1:0.5 “GF120mmF4 Macro R LM OIS WR” (equivalent to 95mm in the 35mm format)
  • Fast aperture mid-telephoto “GF110mmF2 R LM WR” (equivalent to 87mm in the 35mm format)
  • Ultra wide “GF23mmF4 R LM WR” (equivalent to 18mm in the 35mm format)
  • Wide “GF45mmF2.8 R WR” (equivalent to 35mm in the 35mm format)

Fujifilm said that some lenses can resolve over 100MP. To me, this means that it is “future proof” for when the Fujifilm GFX 100S will hit the market, the 100MP successor to the current 50S version.

But let’s get back to the present.

The Fujiflm GFX 50S will cost less then $10,000 with lens and viewfinder (that’s Fuji’s “commitment”). The viewfinder is interchangeable. You can attach a tilting EVF to it.

Fuji has released the official Press Release here.

FXF Admin Andreas has made available all official product images of the GFX and lenses here.

There is a dedicated Fujifilm GFX Facebook group here.

Here are some new tidbits shared by other sites, who where present in the press conference.

And as rumored, Fujifilm also announced the new Instax Square Film :) Press Release here
