Last week, Fujifilm Middle East provided me with a pre-production Fujifilm GFX50S II, a brand-new +50 megapixel Medium Format camera, which was officially released on September 2nd and should be available by the end of this month.
GFX50S (first version) was the first digital medium format Fujifilm camera announced end of 2016. Since then the GFX camera line has multiple bodies like the GFX50R, GFX100 and GFX100S. The latter I tested earlier in the summer and was the basis for my W I D E project. More info can be found at a previous blogpost here.
The new GFX50S II is basically exactly the same body like the 100S but with a smaller sensor; 51 versus 102 megapixels. Obviously still plenty, especially since the sensor size is about 1.7x larger than a classic full frame camera.
While I’m mainly an X-series shooter, I did enjoy shooting the 50S; it feels small enough to carry a full day, especially when being used with some of the smaller lenses. Ergonomically the 50S (and 100S) are probably the best laid out cameras, although I do prefer the “Rangefinder like” style of the 50R more. Fujifilm if you reading this, would love to see a 50R II, with the IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization)!
Given outdoor shooting in Dubai is still pretty unpleasant due to the summer heat, I decided to take the new GFX50S II to Vienna; a city which is known for its history and classic music scene but often not
