19 Sep Fuji medium-format mirrorless camera introduced
The new GFX has a removable viewfinder
Fujifilm’s anticipated medium-format mirrorless camera, the GFX, was announced this evening at Photokina in Cologne. I’m still digesting the details and am attaching the full press release below. The camera, which looks remarkably like a larger XT-2, has a 51.4 MP medium-format sensor and is claimed to deliver the highest image quality in the history of Fujifilm electronic imagine. I dfon’t doubt it. There will be six GF lenses which will arrive “sequentially” in 2017.
There’s no mention of prices yet but I’m digging. [Later: according to DPreview the price of the camera with the 63mm prime will be “well under $10,000”.]
Watch out, X-T3, Big Brother is watching you
The new nifty sixty-three, standard focal-length prime equivalent to a full-frame 50mm.
I haven’t handled the camera yet but it looks remarkably compact for medium format
Decked out with all the grip you could want
