Brought the GFX to Iceland, lots of awesome stuff came from this trip…
23mm F/11, ISO 125, 1/125


Fujifilm GFX

So it happened…. I took the train and left my little mountain village to reach the city. The goal of the trip:

  • print some images I took this summer
  • eat an ice cream
  • meet the GFX

Ice cream had priority of course, and then I proceeded with the rest.

So I went to the photography store to finally meet and hold the Fujifilm GFX 50s for the first time. I had it in my hands, but sadly the battery lasted literally only 3 seconds… I was expecting a better performance ;) .

With the battery down, all I could do was to hold it…. and it felt good, really good. Solid build, rather heavy (with the GF 32-64 on it), but still a comfortable weight to work with and hold it for a longer time, thanks also to the nice protruding grip. No flimsy bending doors, no mushy buttons and overall just a really excellent impression, when it comes to build quality.

And yes, I took off the lens, and stared like hypnotized at that huge sensor… and I thought… do I really need to spend all that money for that surgery at the dentist later this week?

3 minutes, not much longer, and I didn’t take a single picture… but just holding it gave me the impression of huge power and possibilities.

So, if you are interested in the GFX, please do me a favour: go to your local store and hold it, try it out. A million words and images simply can’t beat the experience of having that beast in your hands.

However… until the day comes you can finally meet the GFX by your own… you can enjoy what many talented photographers are producing and sharing with the GFX day after day at our 15,000+ strong GFX facebook group… and some images will be part of today’s GFX zone :)
