19 Jan Fuji GFX – High res samples and an appraisal

Source: Pro Photo Nut

I expect GFX product pictures and specifications are all over the internet by the time you read this so I’ve kept this post for my ‘in camera’ jpegs and to share with you my experience and thoughts of using a second generation prototype GFX camera.

01. GFX50s with the 32-64mm lens at 40mm. ISO 200, 1/8th second at f/4. I took this frame of Carla Monaco during a cover shoot for my book ‘Tutu’. I lit Carla with a battery powered Lupo Superpanel from outside the building. Click on this or any of the pictures in this post to open the full size jpeg in another tab.

GFX has set the hearts racing of so many photographers looking for a change, but is this really the camera to elevate your photography to a higher level? It’s not going to win any beauty pageants; the troubled Hasselblad X1D will be doing that but at a premium price. The Fujifilm GFX has more practical tricks up its sleeve and is unlike any other camera in so many ways. The GFX 50s defies the logic of what came before it and rewrites the large sensor rule book at the same time.

02. GFX50s with the 32-64mm lens at 32mm. ISO 200, 1/50th second at f/4. I lit Carla with a battery powered Lupo Superpanel from outside the building. The leaded windows gave a Scattergel look to the lighting. Click on the picture for the full resolution image. I chose 1/50th second to render the dress movement as a blur and to keep Carla sharp.

Speed of operation…
