Fujifilm GFX 50R Sensor

Recently I was talking to sources, asking how moch the Fujifilm GFX 50R will cost.

I didn’t get an answer yet (no final price for the Fujifilm GFX 50R has been set yet), but I got to hear an interesting tidbit.

The 50 megapixel medium format sensor of the Fujifilm GFX alone costs $2,000!

This comes from trusted source, hence you don’t need to take any grain of salt.

With that said, it seems clear to me that it will be hard for Fujifilm to price the Fujifilm GFX 50R below $4,000, since you have to build also an entire camera around that $2,000 sensor and ship it all over the world, pay the labor cost etc.

HOT!!! Fujifilm GFX 50R First Image Leaked?

Fujifilm GFX 50 R

Could this be the first real life image of the Fujifilm GFX 50 R? (thanks for sharing)

If yes, then here is what we can say:

  • rangefinder style camera
  • EVF only
  • diopter adjustment like on X-Pro2 and not on X-E3
  • makes a compact impression
  • in this image, there is probably a flash trigger attached to the hot shoe

We remind you that the Fujifilm GFX 50 R will be launched around photokina (which takes place between 26 to 29 September). It will be rangefinder styled medium format camera and if this image is real, with EVF only, hence more similar to the Fujifilm X-E3 than to the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

The final Fujifilm GFX 50 R price has not yet been set, I guess also because Fujifilm wants to see at what price tag the Full Frame Canon EOS R is. But in any case it will be significantly less than Fujiilm GFX 50S

But already now I feel pretty confident to claim, that the Fujiflm GFX 50R will look much better than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Fujifilm in Times of Mirrorless Wars

With all the buzz around this new mirrorless war, and the tons of comments here on FujiRumors, I felt the need to launch one article to rule them all.

Hence, this will be the one article, where you can let your thoughts soar free, talk about the mirrorless war, vote polls, share thoughts and ideas.

Let it all out… we need that sometimes.

Let’s start:

Steelsring Nikon F to Fujifilm X Smart Adapter Development Announced… back in May ;) ! And What it Could Mean for Nikon Z6 and Z7

Nikon F to Fuji X Smart Adapter

Here on FujiRumors, we value your time and we want it to be time well spent, which is why we don’t like to regurgitate old news, since we are full of fresh news and rumors every day :)

However, today I woke up and found a few emails in my inbox from readers, asking me if I ever heard about the Steelsring Nikon F to Fujifilm X smart adapter.

So I figured out that in this case, it might be useful to share a reminder, since you might have missed it…. repetita juvant, as they say.

We reported back in May, that the Nikon F to Fuji X (as well as Nikon F to Fuji GFX) smart adapter is in development. Then, last month here, we showed you a first video demo of the GFX to Nikon F smart adapter version.

You can check out more at steelsring here.

If this adapter works well, then this could help to keep up the migration from Nikon to Fujifilm, which Nikon is trying to stop with the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 (about time, Nikon!).

Nikon users could continue to switch to Fujifilm and keep some of the Nikkor lenses they grow fond to. But I am pretty sure that once they enter and meet the Fujinon XF lens system quality, selling their Nikkor glass will become much easier than they would think ;).

Lots of other news, but also TONS of exciting rumors are coming… NOW! Make sure not to miss them hit the bell on the bottom right of your browser, to get instant browser notifications.

And I am warming up my fingers right now for a very exciting X-T3 live blogging. :)

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Nikon Z6 vs Z7 vs Fujifilm GFX 50R vs 50S vs X-H1 vs X-T2 – The Complete SPECS & SIZE Comparison

Fujifilm Vs. Nikon Mirrorless

The Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 have been announced and are now available for pre-order.

So how do Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras compare to Fujifilm’s offering?

Well, I have created a comprehensive specs comparison, and included also the Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm GFX 50R to the list.

While we know a lot about the Fujifilm X-T3 and I can already insert lots of specs in the list, we know not so much about the GFX 50R. However, it should have about the same specs of the GFX 50S, just in another form factor (rangefinder) and for a much cheaper price. So there won’t be big surprises with the GFX 50R.

Both Nikon’s are surely very good cameras. There are many specs to love, but also some, that might not really incentivize Nikon DSLR shooters to switch to Nikon mirrorless Z6 or Z7.

In fact, both cameras have:

  • only 1 XQD card slot (might be a dealbreaker for Pros)
  • battery life is around 310/330 shots (welcome to mirrorless, Nikon)
  • there is no eye-detection AF (let’s hope it comes via firmware update)

But as said, Nikon did lots of other things right. Check out the Nikon Z6 specs at BH and Nikon Z7 specs at BH.

Down below you can find the complete Nikon Z6/7 Vs. Fujifilm X-T3, X-T2, X-H1, GFX 50R and GFX50S comparison. If you prefer, download the PDF comparison file form our dropbox.

Also, Camerasize has now the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 in their database. You can compare it to all the cameras you want at camerasize here. The Fujifilm GFX 50S vs Nikon Z comparisons can be found at photosku.
