18 Dec Opinion: I Dream of a True Fujifilm Workhorse Camera; And We’re Close

When I use the term “true Fujifilm workhorse camera” please note that when it comes to still images Fujifilm is there. With the Fujifilm GFX 50s, X Pro 2, and the X-T2 photographers can shoot to their heart’s content and get great images no matter what. In the case of the Fujifilm GFX 50S though, I really wish programs like Capture One would support the RAW files; but that isn’t happening unfortunately. However, photographers are still able to create and shoot great images; plus they can do it in inclement weather conditions and still have their camera work perfectly fine. Don’t believe me? I’ve done it!

Fujifilm’s X-T2 and Fujifilm’s X Pro 2 are both highly capable cameras for journalists who need to go into the rain or snow and shoot. That’s not a problem at all. Instead, what I’m talking about is video.

I can hear photographers saying, “You don’t buy a Fujifilm camera for the video. You buy it for the amazing stills.” I counter that question with, “Why can’t I do both?” Technically, it’s possible with the Fujifilm X-T2 grip as you get both standard headphone jacks and microphone jacks. It’s totally possible with the Fujifilm GFX 50s because both of those jacks are built in. Indeed, if a reporter has a medium format video workhorse that can shoot video that looks like Fujifilm Acros, they would desperately needs image stabilization of some sort. Of course, shooting on a tripod is easy if rolling shutter is somehow corrected….
