Meet the digital medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S

Forget full-frame, Fujifilm is diving head first into the world of digital medium format and we’re frankly pretty excited. The GFX 50S will make use of a 51.4MP CMOS sensor and X-Processor Pro imaging processor. In terms of surface area, the sensor is 43.8 × 32.9mm or about 4 times the size of sensors used in the company’s APS-C cameras (and 1.7x larger than a full-frame sensor.) And if 51.4MP sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same pixel count as the Pentax 645Z and Hasselbled X1D (though Fujifilm says their sensor is newly developed.)

The GFX 50S is a mirrorless camera and the body itself looks a bit like a jumbo-sized XT-2. Set to launch in early 2017, several accessories will be available including a pretty cool clip-on accessory EVF ‘prism’ that can be tilted and rotated once affixed.

Other accessories include a vertical battery grip, which adds an additional shutter release for use in the vertical orientation, control wheel and additional power. Like the camera, the grip is weather and dust-sealed by design. The camera is also freezeproof down to 14°F. Though we’ve yet to hold it, Fujifilm claims the GFX 50S is much lighter than traditional digital medium format cameras and also a good bit smaller.
