21 Feb First Report of a Production Fujifilm GFX 50S
Source: Fuji Addict
BigHeadTaco received a Fujifilm GFX 50S from Fujifilm with production firmware 1.0. He was so excited he did a live stream where he forgot everything about the GFX so it’s not really worth watching, but he does share one interesting detail. The entire Fujifilm GFX 50S kit, including charger, fits inside the official FUJIFILM X Series.
The Fujifilm GFX 50S is the latest digital medium format camera, and probably one of the most important. Why? Fujifilm is going to help make digital medium format more accessible and eventually, more affordable. Similar to when Sony started the A7 series, pushing the price of the 35mm sensor camera to below $2000 USD; Fujifilm will help drive the price of digital medium format to where the current top-end DSLRs are right now. The DNA of the GFX is partially from their film medium format heritage, but much of the design, function and features come from the X-T2. If you currently shoot with a X series camera, you’ll have no problem navigating through the GFX.
