The Fujifilm GFX… A Winner or Not? For Pros or Also for Enthusiasts? – POLLS

Join 4,600+ Members at the Fujifilm GFX Facebook Group

These must be quite nervous days at the Fuji HQ, since in just the next few weeks and months the market (so, we, the photo geeks ;) ) will decide if the GFX was a winner or not.

Now the big question is: Will the Fujifilm GFX sell well?

Another interesting one is: With a price tag of $6,500/€7000 for the body, will the Fujifilm GFX appeal “only” to professional photographers, or also to the much larger enthusiasts crowd?

If the Fujifilm GFX will make it also into the camera bags of many enthusiasts, then this will be a great success for Fujifilm. And this is what Fujifilm hoped, when they said they will price the GFX “as affordable as possible“. Honestly I think they kept their promise, if you consider that Sony’s Medium Format sensor alone should cost Fujifilm a few thousand dollars (IIRC, Hasselblad, who uses the same sensor in the X1D, said that the sensor alone costs $4000).

And now the surveys, which I’ve split in 3 categories: Polls for Pros*, Enthusiasts and Amateurs. Please answer only in the category you feel to belong to.
*Pros are photographers, who make money out of their photography

Happy voting… and something tells me that this might be a Poll that the Fujifilm management will look very closely at ;)

Fujifilm reads you… and how you even influenced decisions of the managment in the past.

Fujifilm GFX Hands On Impressions :: “A Compact Workhorse, That Will Find A Place in My Bag… and In My Heart”

Fujifilm GFX Hands On Review

Fujifilm GFX facebook member Florian shared his Fujifilm GFX Hands On Review at the Fujiiflm GFX Facebook group here. It’s in German, but you can use the Facebook translation tool to get the English version. He also shares 3 images of the GFX.

I’ll highlight in short some of his findings:

  • BODY: Boxy, very pleasing handling, great ergonomics. Not too big. He loves the joystick. Great build quality, but if you look at the size of body, the camera feels almost too light. It’s like something is missing in the inside, since it’s so light.
  • MENU: It’s still in Beta, so it didn’t run flawlessly
  • EVF: Still in Beta Firmware, but already much better than on the Hasselblad X1D. Information was displayed in white, which he considered not ideal
  • AUTOFOCUS: (Consider it’s an early Beta-Firmware) Absolutely OK. Felt so fast like the AF on the Sony A7, or a bit slower. Definitely faster than the Hasselblad X1D. There was not much light, when he tested the camera, so he expects it to work faster in good light.
  • DISPLAY: On the GFX he handled, there was no touch screen (ADMIN NOTE: or maybe it was not working due to the preliminary Beta-FW? At photokina Fujifilm indicated that it will have a touch.)
  • LENSES: The 63mm is compact. It contributed to the overall lightness of the camera. The zoom lens was quite big.
  • IMAGE QUALITY: No comment. The test condition at the photography fair were not good (bad light) and the Firmware was still a Beta.
  • PRICE: Body: €6,999. 63mm: €1,500 (ADMIN NOTE: This confirms this rumor)
  • CONCLUSION: Awesome. It arouse emotions. Overall very good first impression. A compact workhorse he could use for portrait work, that will find a place in Florian’s bag and heart :) .

The Big Fujifilm GFX Recap :: Everything We Know is Here… RGB Color Histogram, Base ISO 100, AF-Points + Much More!

Here is a big GFX Overview, based on information Fujifilm shared at the Photokina 2016 and later, and also based on Rumors you could find here on FujiRumors. I’ll mark with “R” the rumors and with “F” the facts, although keep in mind that even the facts revealed earlier by Fujifilm could have changed in the meantime.

Everything you can read below has already been published on FR starting from September 2016, but I thought a Recap could be useful, since I keep getting emails with questions, that have already been answered in the past, but given the huge amount of information are easy to miss.

I strongly recommend you to allow push notifications and follow us on Facebook, RSS-feed and Twitter in order not to miss anything.
