  • "The large viewfinder of the GFX50 was unusable for me because I couldn't see the corner of the frame unless using the back LCD, so I returned the GFX."
    I see. No more questions from my side.

  • Few people "need" a GFX camera, correct. As few people needed medium format in the past.

  • As a 50s owner and Canon user, I can tell you that you are dead wrong. The large viewfinder image alone beats anything from Canon. Plus AF precision and (customizable!) interface is much better....

  • In practical applucations, the 50R image quality will by far exceed anything from Canon and Nikon. Reasons are: Colours, lenses and overall per pixel quality. Of course, this will only be relevant...

  • A bit strange, to compare image quality at ISO 64 on the Nikon with ISO 100 on the Fuji. For practical purposes, image quality has to be compared at the amd ISO.

  • Another difference is that the viewfinder magnification of the 50R is quite a bit smaller. I have become very much used to the one of the 50s and think that this is very important feature. Besides ...
  • For what I do, I prefer the 50S. Could I survive with a 50R? Yes. Am I interested in the 50R? No. Am I interested in a 100S? Yes, very much so.
  • The differences between the 50s and r are minor, really. Re-releasing the 50s as an r variant so close to the release of a 100s smells like marketing/sales tactics to me. Bombarding clients with ...
  • The AF of the GFX is not fast by any standards. Not just for sports, but any moving object. On the positive, AF of the GFX is very accurate. "Fast" is also more than just focusing speed. The GFX is ...
  • DoF is manageable, by the way. High ISO image quality isvery good, so you can always stop down when needed. Stopping down is not an issue, since diffraction kicks in much later on Fuji glass than ...
  • A lot depends on what you use this camera for, shooting style and experience. Good for you that you have found the perfect camera for you!
  • The current GFX cameras are very slow. The marketing say that "they are not sports cameras" - of course they are not! But the reality is that they are even slow with slow and slower motif, even in ...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    I don't know about your clients, but mine want pictures that can be used for all sorts of purposes, like online shops and tablets, plus traditional catalogues in your sense and related print ...
  • AF in medium format generally is not great, I agree. I also consider the AF performance of the current GFX models "poor" based on the too many focus failures I have (not compared to other ...

    I am talking about faithful colour reproduction on calibrated monitors. Printing is a completely different story, no need to start this topic here. I mean happy clients. Not engineers an ...

    Pro-Neg Hi offers the most faithful colours, but is a bit contrasty. But then, we can lower contrast in-camera.
  • Replied in Thank you!
    Accurate colour reproduction is a must in fashion and product photography. I guess you never had to listen to a designer who carefully chose colours and then had to see them messed up in a catalog... ...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    I think the adavantage of film was (and in some ways still is) - tolerances. Film emulsions offer tolerances in terms of exposure, colours, contrast etc which allows you to get decent results even ...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    I did some tests using Fuji's factory profiles and profiles generated with a ColourChecker Passport. To my surprise, the native Fuji profiles are actually quite accurate. Especially Pro Neg Hi ...
  • Well, I don't need any external gadgets and don't need to calibrate, because I am working with monitors that have built-in and automatic calibration tools 😊 Monitor calibration is critical for ...
