Fujifilm GFX 50R Review
The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a 50 megapixel rangefinder-styled medium format mirrorless camera. It shares most of its components with the existing GFX 50S, including both its sensor and processor, but re-arranges them into a slightly smaller and less expensive package. And though the GFX 50R provides essentially the same image quality as its elder sibling, the handling and controls make for a very different shooting experience.
- 51.4MP medium format CMOS sensor (43.8 × 32.9mm) with Bayer filter array
- 3.69M-dot OLED EVF
- 3.2" 2.36M-dot touch LCD tilts up/down
- AF-point-selection joystick
- 1/125 sec flash sync speed
- 3 fps continuous shooting
- 1080/30p video capture
- In-camera Raw processing
- Dual SD card slots (UHS-II)
- USB C socket
- Wi-Fi with Bluetooth
The Fujifilm GFX 50R is available now with a recommended selling price of $4500.
Alongside the announcement, Fujifilm also added a 40mm-equivalent 'pancake'-style 50mm F3.5 lens to its lineup. This lens hasn't arrived as of this writing, unfortunately, but should pair well with the (comparatively) compact 50R body.
What's new and how it compares
The GFX 50R contains many familiar ingredients but what's new?
Body and controls
The GFX 50R has a different body style, how does that impact the handling and operation?
Check out how the GFX 50R performs in front of our standard studio test scene.
Image quality vs. full-frame
The GFX 50R's sensor is excellent but so are those of its full-frame peers. Even in a high dynamic range scene there's little real-world difference.
Autofocus and video
With a contrast-detection AF system and 1080P video, the GFX 50R isn't a barnstormer in these areas. But then again, it's really not meant to be.
The GFX 50R is capable of incredible detail, but there may be other better-rounded options out there better for you and your style of photography.
Take a peek through our full production sample gallery from the GFX 50R.
