he Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format camera? No biggie; I’ve only waited 35 years for it. 😉

As it turns out, this gorgeous beast was worth waiting for. 😁

NOTE: this is a long post. It’s part review, part story, all GFX. You might want tea. Or wine.

At any rate, buckle up cowboy, here we go.


Waaaaay back when I was in my 20’s and studying photography with dreams of one day becoming a professional fine artist, all I could think of was having a medium format camera. I wanted one so bad it was all I could think of! I feel asleep at night while visions of Hasselblad danced in my head.

But alas, for myriad of reasons it was not to be, back then.
Cut to now… Wow!

I recently had the opportunity to be one of 6 photographers in the U.S. to beta test the new Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format camera. I jumped at it, with a big cheesy grin on my face! The caveat: we could only have it in our hot little hands for 6 days each. That’s it, no exceptions. The Mission: create images, images, images!

I was game… so I made my plan, scouted my locations and counted the days like an 8 year old with Advent calendar till this beauty arrived.
Or you could say: I went to sleep while visions of GFX danced in my head!…
