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… 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!.”
