Techradar Best in Class 2017

Expert review by: Phil Hall (techradar.com)

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

 

Fujifilm skips full-frame and goes straight to medium format

Breathtaking image quality ; Ergonomic controls ; Weather-sealed body ; Very accurate AF

Only 1/125 sec flash sync ; Awkward exposure comp. control ; AF is slow

The Fujifilm GFX 50S isn't a camera designed for speed junkies, but if you're prepared to shoot in the slightly more methodical manner the camera demands you'll be rewarded with some truly stunning results. The hefty price will persuade many that...

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

 

Medium format, big appeal

Richly detailed shots ; Weatherproof build ; User-friendly ; More compact than many MF cameras

That price tag ; Limited video options and no 4K ; Not built for speed

Not cheap, but no camera we've tested takes better photos than this

Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format camera

 

Fujifilm medium format mirrorless digital camera : Introducing the ultimate high-end mirrorless camera. Fujifilm Corporation has officially announced that, in late February 2017, it will release the Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format mirrorless digital...

With a weight of approx. 1230g when paired with a standard lens (Fujinon GF63mm F2.8 R WR), the camera body weighs approx. 60% of a medium format DSLR camera equipped with a sensor of the same size. Even when compared to a DSLR camera with a slightly...

Fujifilm GFX 50S Review

 

We review the new 50 megapixel medium format mirrorless camera from Fujifilm, the GFX 50S.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S makes medium format photography accessible to those previously put off by the size and weight of medium format system cameras. Sure the camera and lenses are still quite big, which is the case with all medium format cameras, due to...

Fujifilm GFX 50S

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is an affordable medium format camera with superb image quality and a forward-thinking mirrorless design.

Medium format image sensor. 51MP resolution. Crisp, modular EVF. Tilting, touch LCD. Dust- and moisture-resistant design. Film Simulation modes. Dual UHS-II card slots. Wi-Fi. USB-tethered shooting.

Quirky EV compensation control. Limited lens selection at launch. Modest 1/125-second flash sync.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is the best medium format camera you can buy in this price range, and earns our Editors' Choice. It doesn't do some things that high-end medium format cameras do—the Phase One XF 100MP is our favorite in the high-priced realm and...
