25 Nov How to Shoot Extreme Sports with a Medium Format Camera: Daniel Tengs Works Out the Fujifilm GFX 50S

Norwegian Daniel Tengs sets himself apart from other extreme sports photographers in at least one key respect: he goes the extra mile, capturing snowboarders on medium format, namely the Fujifilm GFX 50S. Not exclusively, mind you, but with a certain flair so we can say his photo shoots with this format create a near mind-bending experience for the viewer.
After all, stop and consider how difficult it is to control such shoots to begin with using any 35mm-style camera. With the larger format you enter a different mindset. But in the hands of extreme sports photographer Daniel Tengs it appears effortless.
Testing the Limits of Medium Format
When given the opportunity to shoot with the Fujifilm GFX 50S, Tengs couldn’t pass it up, especially since he is not a stranger to Fujifilm cameras. Prior to incorporating the medium format model into his extreme sports photography, his go-to camera had been, and still is, a Fujifilm X-T2 APS-C mirrorless.
This, however, is not Tengs’s first foray into medium format for high action. “I first tried shooting with medium format seven years ago,” Tengs recalls. “I wanted to try it out not only because of the extra megapixels but also because of the look that a medium format camera gives to the picture.”
That interest in the larger format soon waned, only to be rekindled by the Fujifilm 50S. But why? “The GFX 50S is a robust, weather sealed, and light camera system. And since it’s in the Fuji family, it’s a camera system I already know very well.”
