Amateur with Fujifilm GFX 50R vs Pro with a Google Pixel 3, Matt Granger Fujifilm GFX50R vs Hasselblad X1DII, GFX 50 fake ISO and More

The Fujifilm GFX100 is surely a game changer for the medium format world, and as such the coverage is massive (and sales are excellent).

I had the pleasure to shoot with it, and I can fully understand the hype, and I think it deserves all the best success.

  • DPReview says – Fujifilm GFX100 image quality? It outperforms full frame! Best IQ we ever tested

But as it happens often, when some new gear comes, we tend to forget about “older” gear… but not here on FujiRumors :).

So down below there is a roundup dedicated to the Fujifilm GFX50R and Fujifilm GFX50S.

Tony Northrup Fujifilm GFX 50R (not Error-Free) Review: “Fujifilm GFX 100 Will Fix All Our Concerns”

Fujifilm GFX

Tony Northrup took a Fujifilm GFX 50R for his Barcelona trip and now published a review about it (video above).

I will sum it up for you below, but I would quickly like to correct a few errors he made.

He says the GFX sensor surface area is 30% bigger than Full Frame, but it is actually 70% bigger. This is not correct, and Tony makes the MF sensor sound smaller than it really is.

He complaints that there is only one lens with OIS, but there are actually 3 lenses with OIS, the GF 250mm F4, GF 120mmF4 and GF 100-200mm f/5.6.

Since we like percentages, basically Tony claims that about 12% of all GF lenses have OIS, when reality is that almost 40% have OIS.

Rather big errors, I hope Tony will correct soon, and I wonder how they could even slip into his review in the first place.

For the rest, you can read his findings below.

  • not a sports camera, not good at tracking
  • not a video camera
  • great landscape camera, but Fuji needs more lenses, and more astrophotography lenses
  • decent walk around camera
  • no huge difference in IQ compared to FF
  • soon GFX 100 will be here with IBIS, and should address all concerns they have with GFX 50R
  • corner placement of viewfinder is great
  • does not give the joy, that Fujifilm X-T3 gives him
  • small flat buttons
  • grip to small for big medium format lenses
  • screen is small compared to overall size of camera
  • design of Hasselblad X1D is better
  • eye detection AF is not accurate
  • sensor has 30% more surface area
  • if you crop to standard 35mm aspect ration, the surface area advantage is almost gone as well as image quality difference
  • Cropping 8×10 gives about 50% more surface area
  • he complaints that it has not IBIS and only 1 lens has OIS
  • Fujifilm GFX has much better lenses than Hasselblad X1D
  • Sony A7rIII is better overall camera
  • Fujifilm GFX 50R is a specialized camera

FUJIFILM GFX 50R and X-T30 crowned Winners at the 2019 TIPA World Awards

Tipa Awards 2019

We already questioned a few times, if these awards make sense, by disclosing how the award business works. But for some reason many Fujifilm X and GFX still rejoice when they read about Fujifilm winning an EISA, TIPA or whatever else award.

So I don’t want to be the spoilsport here, let’s just ignore it all and rejoice once again :).

Oh, and btw, don’t take any award seriously, that does not assign a price to the stellar FUJIFILM XF 200mm f/2 R LM OIS WR.

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Olympus E-M1X vs Fujifilm GFX 50R Specs and Size Comparison

In a few hours, Olympus will officially announce the Olympus E-M1X.

The full specs are already leaked at 43rumors, and always 43rumors spotted here that Apotelyt has already put Olympus upcoming flagship in their database.

Hence, you can now compare its size to other cameras, for example the Fujifilm X-T3 or the Fujifilm GFX50R.

You can see the size comparisons after Apotelyt’s list of reason why to get the Fujifilm X-T3 over the Olympus E-M1X and vice versa.

Reasons to prefer the Fujifilm X-T3:

  • More detail: Has more megapixels (26 vs 20.2MP), which boosts linear resolution by 16%.
  • Better image quality: Features bigger pixels on a larger sensor for higher quality imaging.
  • Richer colors: Larger pixels generate images with better, more accurate colors.
  • More dynamic range: Capable of capturing a wider spectrum of light and dark details.
  • Better low-light sensitivity: Can be used in poorly lit environments and still produce good images.
  • More detailed viewfinder: Has higher resolution electronic viewfinder (3690k vs 2360k dots).
  • Larger screen: Has a bigger rear LCD (3.2″ vs 3.0″) for image review and settings control.
  • More compact: Is smaller (133x93mm vs 144x147mm) and will fit more readily into a bag.
  • Less heavy: Has a lower weight (by 458g or 46 percent) and is thus easier to take along.
  • Faster data transfer: Supports a more advanced USB protocol (3.1 vs 3.0).
  • More affordable: Was introduced into a lower priced category (50 percent cheaper at launch).
  • More heavily discounted: Has been on the market for longer (launched in September 2018).

Advantages of the Olympus OM-D E-M1X:

  • High quality composites: Can combine several shots after pixel-shifting its sensor.
  • More flexible LCD: Has swivel screen for odd-angle shots in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • More selfie-friendly: Has an articulated screen that can be turned to be front-facing.
  • Faster burst: Shoots at higher frequency (18 vs 11 flaps/sec) to capture the decisive moment.
  • More portrait friendly: Features an integrated vertical grip for easier portrait shooting.
  • Longer lasting: Can take more shots (870 versus 390) on a single battery charge.
  • Sharper images: Has hand-shake reducing image stabilization built-in.
  • More modern: Is somewhat more recent (announced 4 months after the X-T3).

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Nikon Z7 vs Fujifilm GFX 50R: How BIG can you PRINT your PHOTOS? – Landscape Photography

APS-C vs Full Frame vs Medium Format

Nigel Danson has tested the Fujifilm GFX50R for DPReviewTV, and his conclusion is that it has the best image quality he has ever used.

The Fujifilm GFX50R is not a perfect camera, though. It is still expensive, and Fujifilm made some bad ergonmic choices, like the removal of the dedicated ISO dial. And given its form and size, it’s also not the easiest to shoot handheld with.

His coverage continues on his own private channel, and this time Nigel compares prints made out of Fujifilm GFX50R, Nikon Z7 and Fujifilm X-T3 files.

Considering that, the bigger the print, the more people will stand back to see the entire image, all cameras deliver good results.

But if you “pixel peep”, the Fujifilm X-T3 (which overall delivers very good results also at fairly big prints), has a disadvantage over the higher megapixel of the Fuji GFX50R and Nikon Z7 at very large prints.

Most important, though, are the lenses, and he is blown away by the quality of the Fujinon GF lenses and their corner to corner sharpness.
