High-performance digital Medium format quality in a more portable package
The release of a Fujifilm digital medium format camera has been rumoured and anticipated for quite some time and the release of this GFX 50s will not disappoint the speculators. Bringing with it an exciting new range of lenses that is likely to blossom and grow like Fuji’s smaller format interchangeable X-series range, the GFX 50s is sure to make a huge splash in the photographic market, winning over many new professional and enthusiast fans and making other manufacturers stand up and take notice.
Promising to deliver an exceptionally high level of image quality and detail is a whopping 51.4 Megapixel CMOS sensor, measuring 43.8x32.9mm in size. Following on from Fuji’s successful smaller format mirrorless offerings, this new medium format announcement will continue to impress with its excellent level of colour reproduction and low-light performance, a quality that has encouraged other manufacturers to pay attention and try their best to keep up.
The Fuji GFX 50s is not the first Digital medium format camera on the market, but it manages to stand out from the crowd with its substantially smaller size and weight. An ergonomic grip ensures the camera is not looked upon as a studio-only camera, making it an ideal option for high-performance travel and landscape photography. Again continuing on in the mindset of its X-series siblings, physical buttons and dials are strategically placed on the body for the control of all important functions and settings. It does not take too much hard work to acquire professional results with this system.
