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.

New Fuji GFX 50S Price / Old GFX 50R Deal

It seems that Fujifilm decided to lower the price of the Fujifilm GFX 50S permanently, hence the new retail price is $5,499. At least I can’t see any remark on BHphoto, Adorama and AmazonUS that this is just a deal (the same deal that expired on Dec. 29).

Looks like the Fujifilm GFX50R, which sells for $4,499, affected negatively GFX 50S sales, hence the new retail price.

Also, the bundle deal on Fujifilm GFX50R should have been expired on December 29, but BHphoto and Adorama still offer the deal.

Fujifilm Manager says Fujifilm GFX 50R went Through 10 Different Designs and Fuji GFX50R for Travels

Fujifilm GFX50R

MANAGER INTERVIEW: Fujifilm manager Makoto Oishi said to thephoblographer (video above), that the Fujifilm GFX 50R went through at least 10 different designs.

One idea was to put the hybrid viewfinder into thr Fujufilm GFX50R, but it would have made the Fujifilm GFX50R bigger and heavier as well as parallax issues due to large G-mount.

Fujifilm still struggled with the size, though, especially because of the shutter mechanism and the battery.

So, week after week, they re-designed and re-developed the Fujifilm GFX50R in order to reduce the size.

At the end, they made at least 10 different designs and plastic models, until they reached the desired size.

ON THE FIELD WITH GFX 50R: William Chua brought the Fujifilm GFX50R in western Mongolia. The result is a series of wonderful images, you can check out at williamchua here.

Of course the camera would work great in other kind of photography as well, studio, landcapes etc.. but I think it works best out in the streets, and for general travel photography. Probably not the best for fast action things though. […] Its very addictive to shoot with this camera.

Fujifilm GFX 50R

The Fujifilm GFX50R will start shipping November 29. Since a few weeks not, the FujifilmGFX 50R is marked as Nr.1 seller at BHphoto. I guess the attractive Fuji GFX50R bundle deals help to boost the sales at launch.

Fujifilm GFX 50R Street Photography, Kai Wong Hands On and Could the Fujifilm GFX 100 have an X-Trans Sensor?

Fujifilm GFX 50R

William Chua took the Fujifilm GFX 50R out for some street photography in Cologne. You can read the full blog post and see the samples at williamchua.com. Some excerpts:

  • Being a GFX 50s user, he was not too excited about this camera. But after using it for a few days, he has to say he loves it more and more
  • Its a great camera for street photography
  • might not be as comfortable to use with big glass like the GF 250mm
  • in a lot of his sample images, he used face detection, and he’s glad to say it works extremely well

Jonas Rask shares his impressions of the Photokina 2018 in the best way possible: by sharing wonderful images taken with Fujifilm GFX 50R and X100F. Check out his article “When the floor dust settles” at jonasrask here.

Kai Wong was at photokina and shares his walkthrough the various booths. Of course he also checked out the Fujifilm GFX 50R. Jump to minute 5:43 here, to check out the part about Fujifilm.

MediumFormat: First Impressions of the Fujifilm GFX 50R at mediumformat

PhoBlographer writes in his Fujifilm GFX 50R first impressions that the Fujifilm GFX 50R is the camera he’s been waiting for. They would like a 50MP X-Trans version and pay even more for it, and faster glass (such as the rumored GF 80mm F1.4) would also be appreciated. Read it all at phoblographer here.

Spanish: The Spanish site albedomedia (translation) goes hands on with the Fujifilm GFX 50R. They share their impressions as well as some media slides including an overview of Fujifilm’s camera history, which you can see below.

Fujifilm GFX 100 MP X-Trans

ThePhoblographer had a talk with Fujifilm USA manager Justin Stailey, mainly about the Fujifilm GFX 50R, but there was also a question about the Fujfiilm GFX 100.

Phoblographer: Why isn’t the GFX 100MP sensor an X Trans sensor?
Justin: I don’t think we said that it was or was not X-Trans. but…In Medium Format, the Bayer Sensor has proven to provide excellent image quality

So, despite hinting that a Bayer sensor is more likely than an X-Trans sensor, Fuji Manager Justin did not exclude the possibility it could be a 100 Megapixel X-Trans sensor. Read the whole interview at phoblographer.

We remind you that the Fujifilm GFX 100 megapixel camera should offer pixel shift multishot, which would indicated that a Bayer sensor is more likely. Read more here.
