Fujifilm GFX 50R Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Fujifilm's new medium format camera combines a huge sensor with rangefinder-style handling. Is it the dream camera for documentary photographers?

Masses of details in images ; Relatively light body ; Robust build ; Great JPEGs straight out of camera ; Two cards slots

Not the easiest body to handle ; No 4K video recording ; Small AF lever a little fiddly ; EVF can show aliasing with fine details ; No sensor-based image stabilisation

The GFX 50R won’t be for everyone – even those who can afford it – but if you need to be relatively mobile without compromising on image quality, this deserves to be on your shortlist.

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

 

If you really enjoy the process of photography, you'll fall in love with the Fujifilm GFX.

Great image quality ; User-friendly interface ; Good battery life ; Edge-to-edge AF coverage ; Relatively affordable

Image quality not that much better than full-frame ; 1/125 sec. flash sync speed ; Continuous AF basically unusable

It’s hard to make the rational case for a camera like the GFX. It’s a fantastic machine that can produce some truly wonderful photographs, but with how good full-frame cameras and lenses have gotten in recent years, medium format just doesn’t make...

Fujifilm GFX 50S

 

The wait for Fujifilm's eagerly anticipated medium-format mirrorless camera is over. This monster is aimed at professional and commercial shooters who insist on nothing but the finest image quality – and to that end it boasts a sensor 1.7x larger in...

A week with Fujifilm's GFX 50S medium-format mirrorless camera

 

We just had to put that 51.4-megapixel sensor to the test.

Fujifilm GFX 50R

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50R matches the imaging capabilities of its fraternal twin, the GFX 50S, but is better styled for use outside the studio.

51MP medium format sensor. Rangefinder-style design. Tilting touch LCD. Dust and splash protection. Film Simulation modes. Dual UHS-II slots.

Doesn't balance well with larger lenses. Screen articulation limited to one axis. Autofocus doesn't compete with 35mm cameras.

Bottom Line: The Fujifilm GFX 50R matches the imaging capabilities of its fraternal twin, the GFX 50S, but is better styled for use outside the studio.

Fujifilm GFX 50R Review

 

Fujifilm's GFX 50R takes the image quality from the existing 50S model and wraps it in a new body with new controls and a lower price of entry. Is that enough to tempt you to pick one up for yourself? Find out how the GFX 50R performs in our full review.

The GFX 50R is the least expensive medium format digital camera available. Like the Pentax 645Z it benefits hugely from inheriting a interface that's been subjected to the evolutionary pressures of the mass market. This means the GFX is as easy to use...

Fujifilm GFX 50R review: bigger isn’t always best

 

Fujifilm's GFX 50R looks new, but is familiar underneath

Compact, familiar design ; Same film simulations as Fujifilm’s other cameras ; Above average battery life ; Least expensive way to get a modern medium format digital camera

Slow autofocus ; Slow, continuous shooting speed ; Not as good in low light as smaller cameras

That makes the 50R a bit disappointing if you were hoping to use it as a medium format camera on the go. It still performs its best in slow, deliberate environments, such as in a studio or on a landscape photographer’s tripod. Despite it ­looking­ like...

Fujifilm's $4,500 GFX 50R hits a new low price for medium format

 

The company's eagerly awaited "affordable" version of its GFX 50S trims features you probably won't miss -- and a couple you might.

Fujifilm GFX 50R First Impressions Review

 

The GFX 50R is a 50MP rangefinder-style mirrorless camera. It borrows heavily from the existing 50S model but in a smaller body and at a lower price. How does it differ?

Fujifilm GFX 50S

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is an affordable medium format camera with superb image quality and a forward-thinking mirrorless design.

Medium format image sensor. 51MP resolution. Crisp, modular EVF. Tilting, touch LCD. Dust- and moisture-resistant design. Film Simulation modes. Dual UHS-II card slots. Wi-Fi. USB-tethered shooting.

Quirky EV compensation control. Limited lens selection at launch. Modest 1/125-second flash sync.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is the best medium format camera you can buy in this price range, and earns our Editors' Choice. It doesn't do some things that high-end medium format cameras do—the Phase One XF 100MP is our favorite in the high-priced realm and...
