Characterized by its large sensor, advanced imaging capabilities, and modular design, the GFX 50S from FUJIFILM is a unique medium format mirrorless camera that is highly versatile and distinctly portable. At the heart of the GFX camera system is the 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor, which pairs with the X-Processor Pro image processor to produce files with extremely wide dynamic range and high resolution, as well as an extended sensitivity range of ISO 50-102400 for working in difficult lighting conditions. The sensor's large form factor also achieves a unique three-dimensional look with especially smooth tonal and color transitions. Beyond this, the sensor and processor combination also avails the ability to work in a variety of aspect ratios common to traditional large and medium format film cameras, as well as the ability to shoot at up to 3 fps or record Full HD 1080p/30 video. As forward-thinking as the GFX 50S is, its use of film-camera inspired design imbues it with intuitive operation and the ability to apply the camera system to myriad styles and methods of image-making.

Complementing the imaging assets is a truly versatile physical design that champions multiple ways of working with the camera. A removable 3.69m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder can be used for high-resolution eye-level viewing, and can be paired with an optional tilt adapter to permit working with the finder from various working angles. Alternatively, the rear 3.2" 2.36m-dot touchscreen LCD features a three-way tilting design that supports working from high and low angles, even when shooting in the vertical orientation. Operability is further reinforced through the use of several dedicated dials for adjusting exposure settings, and a top LCD screen is also featured for quickly checking settings and exposure data. Additionally, the GFX 50S sports a magnesium alloy build that is both lightweight and durable, and is also dust- and weather-sealed, as well as freezeproof down to 14°F, for working in trying environmental conditions.

51.4MP CMOS Sensor and X-Processor Pro

Utilizing a large, 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor and X-Processor Pro, the GFX 50S is capable of delivering high-resolution, 14-bit stills with a 14-stop wide dynamic range as well as a broad sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800, which can be extended to ISO 50-102400. The large size of each pixel allows for more efficient light gathering, too, for smoother tonal and color transitions to produce a characteristic three-dimensional "medium format look." Also contributing to several medium format looks, a variety of traditional medium and large format aspect ratios can be used in addition to the standard 4:3, including 1:1, 65:24, 5:4, 7:6, 3:2, and 16:9.

The image processor and sensor also lend a versatile edge to the system, and permit shooting continuously up to 3 fps or for recording Full HD 1080p video at 29.97, 25, 24, and 23.98 fps frame rates. Film Simulation modes, including a Color Chrome Effect to produce subtle tonality among highly saturated colors, can be used in conjunction with video recording, too, to lessen the need for color correction during post production.

Body Design

  • Magnesium alloy body construction is both lightweight and durable, and the camera system is sealed in 58 places to render it weather- and dust-resistant, as well as freezeproof down to 14°F, for use in inclement conditions.
  • Based on a modular concept, a removable 3.69m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder is included for high-resolution, 0.85x-magnification eye-level viewing, and can be paired with an optional EVF-TL1 Tilt Adapter for positioning the finder at a variety of working angles.
  • The removable EVF connects with the camera body via the hot shoe, and the EVF features its own hot shoe to maintain compatibility with optional external flashes.
  • A 3.2" 2.36m-dot touchscreen LCD is also available for image playback, menu navigation, and live view shooting. This LCD features a unique tilting design that moves both 45° downward and 90° upward for shooting from high and low angles, and also tilts 60° to the side to benefit shooting in the vertical orientation when in live view.
  • A series of dedicated dials are placed about the body for independently adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.
  • The aperture ring on GF lenses and the ISO dial on the camera feature a C (Command) position, and the Shutter Speed dial has a T position, to enable adjusting these settings via the front and rear control dials.
  • A 1.28" sub LCD monitor is also featured on the top plate for settings confirmation and exposure data.
  • Included NP-T125 rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 400 shots per charge when Auto Power Save is on.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows for direct wireless sharing of files as well as remote camera control from a linked mobile device.

117-Point Autofocus System

A contrast-detection autofocus system is employed that uses 117 total points, which can be further divided into 425 points, for notable focusing speed and accuracy that is especially beneficial when working with the inherent shallow depth of field of medium format. Focus point selection is possible using the integrated Focus Lever for intuitive switching between points and, alternatively, the rear touchscreen can also be used for selecting precise focus areas. Face and Eye Detection AF are also available to benefit portraiture, and an electronic depth of field scale can be used for more critical selective focus. Additionally, focus peaking is available in manual focus mode as well as frame magnification for more critical focusing.

Other Camera Features

  • The FUJIFILM G lens mount features a short focal flange distance of just 26.7mm to better facilitate adapting lenses and to allow for reduced back focusing distances to better prevent vignetting and promote edge-to-edge sharpness with the GF series of lenses.
  • Film Simulation modes allow you to reproduce the look and feel of several of FUJIFILM's film types, including Provia, Velvia, Astia, Eterna, Classic Chrome, Classic Neg., Pro Neg. Hi, Pro Neg. Standard, Acros, Monochrome, and Sepia. Additionally, Grain Effect can be adjusted as well as Classic Chrome effect to fine-tune the look of imagery.
  • Smooth Skin Effect helps to disguise blemishes and produce an overall smooth appearance to suit portraiture applications.
  • Mechanical focal plane permits working with shutter speeds from 60 min. up to 1/4000 sec., and an electronic shutter allows the use of shutter speeds up to 1/16000 sec. for working in bright light conditions.
  • Interval shooting is possible for up to 999 consecutive frames with a 1 sec. to 24 hour delay between exposures, as well as up to a 24 hours shutter delay.
  • Multiple Exposure mode lets you shoot two consecutive overlaid frames, and the first frame will be shown on the rear LCD to aid in alignment for the second exposure.
  • Dual UHS-II SD memory card slots are featured, and permit saving imagery in a sequential manner, backup/duplicate manner, or in a sorted manner to segregate JPEG and raw files.
  • A variety of file formats are available depending on your workflow needs, and include uncompressed and compressed raw file types; Super Fine, Fine, and Normal JPEG settings; and TIFF files can be output via in-camera raw file development.
  • A voice memo function lets you solely record your voice for up to 30 seconds at a time for making notes or keeping track of shooting information.
  • 3D Electronic Level can be used to ensure the accuracy of horizontal and vertical lines within your composition.
  • Tethered shooting is possible using X Acquire software to send images from the camera to a hot folder on your computer for further editing. Alternatively, the Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and HS-V5 for Windows operating systems are also available.

FUJIFILM GFX 50S Reviews

LOVE IT!!!

I don't care much for the poor low light auto focus performance,.....or the low sync speed,.....but with its insane sharpness and fabulous color I'll still give this camera 5 stars. I don't do video so I can't comment on that. However I did a two day shoot with a model and got the camera the day before the shoot. It took me 3-4 shots to get the gist of the auto focus but after that it was one beautiful image after another. Highly recommended!!

Better than canon 5dsr- and I love my 5dsr!!!

I have purchased into the gfx system from the moment the 50s was released. I am one critical bast#%d and am very hard to impress. And I am impressed! The main highlight everyone will notice is the larger sensor. Claimed to be medium format, however I shoot medium format film regularly and all my medium format cameras are at least twice as large as full-frame, this sensor is 1.7Xs larger. For a digital sensor, it is closer to film size MF than it is to FF, so will pass as MF. It is by no means the ‘perfect’ camera, however I wasn’t blown away by sensor size, I was blown away by what this sensor is capable of. Sony sensor with fujifilms UNIQUIE tweaks has made this sensor arguably the best 50mp sensor in the world. ISO lowlight ability rivals all FF sensors hands down, this sensor is very forgiving for over/under exposure, so much so I have shot 11 stops underexposed at iso 6400 and was able to preserve 95% of all the shadow details!! This sensor is a bloody workhorse. The processor and software coupled with this sensor makes it I believe a worlds best 50mp camera. I have Fujifilm film cameras/lenses and they are very much like canon with respect to having the history and ability to make broadcast quality lenses and gear. This company has been specialising in MF lenses since well before I was born-40yrs. And to no surprise their G lenses are indeed best in class, based on specs, mtf charts, internet reviews and personal hands-on experience. The general usability of this camera makes it so appealing, with no battery grip you are picking up a camera same sized to my canon 5dsr/mk3/mk4/5D!!! With a battery grip it is same size as my 1d series camera!! Price has come down from great to rediculously cheap for what you are getting- and can be even bought on special at an even cheaper joke of a price! Only issue is a slow fps rate - this isn’t a sports camera, it is a landscape/portrait magician. Don’t expect 1d speeds.

I used a Mamiya RZ67 for more than twenty years to do forensic photography; crime scenes, car crashes, evidence of other types. After film almost disappeared and I retired, I sold the Mamiya equipment, and eventually decided that I wanted to continue with medium format plus Mirrorless for scenery, animals & etc. When I found the Mamiya GFX 50S, I almost instantly decided that, This is It. I have not been disappointed. I especially like the tethered shooting capability and the ability to download the photographs to my laptop as they are shot. The Film Simulation Mode promises additional capabilities. The RZ67 was a great camera in its day; the GFX 50S appears to be even better!

Caution

I bought this camera ahead of its release and eagerly awaited its arrival, supper excited at finally being able to shoot medium format. I am a pro shooter in business for over 30 years. On first tests I was overjoyed with image resolution, tonal range and just a spectacular overall image quality that I have been missing since my Hasselblad days. The first body I got went bad with a strange electronics issue after about 2 weeks. After a brief but productive call with Fujis tech support I was advised to return the camera because of electrical issues. Somewhat shaken but still very much attached to the amazing image quality I was seeing I bought another and several lenses. (the lenses while large as you would expect from medium format, are superb!) I continued to test, and even shoot a few jobs. I started seeing strange patterning, in blue jeans on a portrait, on spines of books in a bookshelf and others. Rather than being the typically moire they were more of a graphic patterning, a literal checkerboard on one image. I did try the moire tool in Capture One with no effect on one image and such extensive blurring on another by the time it could affect it it was not usable. I spent many hours talking with Fujis tech support who were very responsive up until this issue. I sent them samples, talked with them trying to figure it out until they just stopped responding at all. I am an architectural and interior shooter and simply could not risk the random and irreparable patterning showing up through out my images. Sadly I returned the entire system (thank you B&H!) and have reluctantly invested in the Nikon D850 as my next best affordable option. I am posting this to spare others the long and agonizing journey I went through. It is my sincere hope that Fuji will listen and address this immediately as this is otherwise an amazing camera and system, rendered virtually unusable by this issue as far as I am concerned. The only other issue that needs seriously to be addressed is that the camera tethers on the bottom making it difficult or impossible to shoot tethered.

I’ve had many cameras including the Pentax 6 x 7 a few year ago. I’ve own Fuji products and was always satisfied with it’s quality. This camera is a delight to use. It’s user friendly, easy to understand and it’s lenses are reasonably priced. Although I’ve had it a month, I can see that it has quality and well designed.

Takes a little getting used to moving from canon, the auto focus is not as responsive, but the image quality is amazing as well as the “look” of the images you can definitely tell it’s a larger sensor. I would recommend.

Amazing Images and Wonderful Ergonomics

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-06-08

Overall, it's amazing. One thing's for sure, when you get it in your hand, you won't want to put it down; the ergonomics are wonderful! Whether horizontal (sorry, I'm 61, so I guess the correct terminology is Landscape ) or vertical/Portrait, your thumb has a small ledge on the right side to keep it more securely held on-to, which I like. I have the vertical grip which uses it's own battery (same as cam batt), no AAs. I am used to Nikon cameras and menus ... I think for the most part you'll navigate the menus ok. There are some quirks, for example, choosing the info you want in the Secondary LCD Monitor (top of camera), for some reason, the method you use to make selections is different than in other parts of the menu. Anyway, not a big deal. I would just sit down with the manual and camera and go through it and you will feel very empowered and master what you need in no time. Also, please do not look for a dial with A, S, M, P it ain't there. Just set what you want to be auto and what you want to choose and go from there. Yet they devote a whole dial to just ISO. ?? I think it would have been nice to have small buttons for ISO, WB and Size for quick access to important settings, but oh well.  Ok, in all fairness, YOU CAN set MY MENU in the regular menu with whatever features you use most and that's fairly easy to get to, but buttons would have been faster. There is +/- for compensation (frankly, I don't know what that's doing on a Medium Format Camera, but it's there). There are seemingly LOADS of fcn buttons so be careful where you grab. Ok, so new landscape camera-wise but nothing outrageously new.   There is a voice memo recording option; Display the pic in playback mode, press and hold the front command dial and you have 30 sec of record time max.  LOTS of bracketing options to choose from; AE, ISO, Film Simulation, White Balance, Dynamic Range. Very convenient! Love it!  It's on the Drive button just infront/next to the SS dial. Continuous burst is 3 fps.  Ok great, awesome ... not really expecting to use this like an MD-2. ALSO !! If you attach a flash or Pocket Wizard to the Hotshoe! Please choose MECHANICAL SHUTTER (Shooting Setting) as the hotshot does not work for ELECTRICAL SHUTTER. The mechanical shutter is amazingly quiet, yet the electronic shutter is supposed to be even quieter. Also, the mech shutter allows you to use SS faster than 1/4000 sec. if you need such. Love the way the LCD / Touch screen monitor in the back moves! Very handy. Love to use it as a WL Finder! AND I believe it is removable too. Now, the images. Wow! Honest-to-God, it's like you're looking at a 4x5 on the light table. I will try to post some showing three of the film presets; Provia, Velvia, and Astia are the ones I chose. They have quite a list, even several B&W options, including WITH Red, Green and Orange filters! Wow. Film Presets. PROVIA/STND, VELVIA, ASTIA, CLASSIC CHROME, PRO NEG HI, PRO NEG STD, ACROS, MONOCHROME and SEPIA. Love it!! Auto-Expose. Sorry, that's for consumer cameras in my view. I use an incident meter or a spot meter. It's there tho, have at it! I read a review somewhere here that said there was a lag when taking pics? I think that person may have chosen the option for focus priority to be on FOCUS and not RELEASE. I found NO lag in taking pics at all. I DID notice some refresh lagging in the main LCD finder and I think in the eye-level finder, but it was not a problem at all. Focus; Remember there is NO mirror. Whether you use the eye-level finder OR the LCD main screen, basically, you're looking at a TV screen, a really good one. So while you CAN manually focus, I choose to auto-focus. For me it's more sure. There are many focus point options to choose from. And the Joystick is very conveniently located near your thumb, whether Landscape OR Portrait. Batteries. They don't take long to charge at all. AND the best part; They are SO EASY to load and unload! Thank you FUJIFILM! It is basically right behind the LCD screen with the door on the left side. So easy and quick. Video. Ok when I need a video camera, I USE A VIDEO CAMERA. LOL

What's the major difference between this and the GFX 50R? Is it worth $1000 price difference?
Asked by: Rick
The 50R is smaller and lighter. The 50R has a smaller grip. On the 50R the viewfinder is on the left side of the camera (rangefinder style), and the 50S it is located at the center (SLR design). The EVF on the 50S can be removed, or oriented at different angles with the optional EVF-TL1 tilt adapter. The rear monitor on the GFX 50S can be tilted in three ways just like the X-T2, X-T3 and X-H1 cameras. In addition to the traditional up and down movements, you can tilt it to the right by approximately 60°. They both have wifi but the 50R has bluetooth. The GFX 50S can be used with an optional battery grip (VG-GFX1) to double the battery life of the camera. No vertical grip has been developed for the 50R.

Can you use with Fuji X lens?

Can you use with Fuji X lens?
Asked by: Jean
I agree with the others: It May be possible to find an adapter that would allow you to physically mount X lenses on the GFX bodies, but those lenses are not designed to project an image across the entire, larger sensor. The more common situis to go the other way by putting legacy medium format lenses on the GFX cameras via adapters.

My GFX 50S was just delivered; I'm setting up custom functions. No where in the manual does it specify, but do WB, Film Simulation and DR not show in the LCD and EVF when they are set to auto or standard? I assume this is the case as they show when they are on a different setting. Seems odd, perhaps I'll get used to it. Thanks.
Asked by: john
It is common for cameras to block out certain manual overrides when a camera is set to auto mode. Fuji only allows you access to the WB, film simulation and DR modes in the more manual settings.
