FUJIFILM GFX 50S II Overview

By B&H Photo's
FUJIFILM GFX 50S II: More Than Full Frame
Offering the perfect mix of accessibility and flexibility, the GFX 50S II from FUJIFILM is a unique medium format mirrorless camera that is wonderfully compact and portable. Featuring a 51.4MP CMOS sensor paired with an improved X-Processor 4 image processor, this camera produces files with extremely wide dynamic range and high resolution, as well as having 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.
The GFX 50S II has also been updated with a five-axis in-body image stabilization system that negates up to 6.5 stops of camera shake for improved handheld shooting, providing dramatically broad creative possibilities for image makers wanting to work more freely with slower shutter speeds. For composing images, a 3.69m-dot electronic viewfinder can be used for high-resolution eye-level viewing, and a rear 3.2" 2.36m-dot touchscreen LCD features a three-way tilting design that supports working from high and low angles. Additionally, the GFX 50S II offers 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 harsh environmental conditions.
51.4MP CMOS Sensor and X-Processor 4
Utilizing a large, 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor and an improved X-Processor 4, the GFX 50S II is capable of delivering high-resolution, 14-bit stills with 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 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.
Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
Standing out from its predecessor, the GFX 50S II features an in-body image stabilization system that provides up to an impressive 6.5 stops of five-axis stabilization. This provides dramatically broad possibilities for image makers wanting to work more freely with slow shutter speeds.
117-Point Autofocus System
Complimenting the updated image processor is a 117-point autofocus system enabling razor-sharp responses, whether subject tracking or picking out a face in a crowd. An improved autofocusing algorithm boosts focusing performance in all modes, including face and eye detection.
Additional 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 19 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.
  • 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.
  • Dual 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.
  • 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.
Body Design
  • 3.69m-dot electronic viewfinder is included for high-resolution, 0.77x-magnification eye-level viewing.
  • A 3.2" 2.36m-dot touchscreen LCD is also available for image playback, menu navigation, and live view shooting.
  • LCD monitor is also featured on the top plate for settings confirmation and exposure data.
  • Single NP-W235 rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated to provide approximately 440 shots per charge.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi allows for direct wireless sharing of files as well as remote camera control from a linked mobile device.

    FUJIFILM GFX 50S II Reviews

    Wowsers

    I was shopping for an X-T5 or maybe an X-H2 to nurture my love for Fujifilm cameras but to still fit in my workflow as an event photographer. Either of those could have gone nicely with my Sony A7RIII in my sort of weird mix of brands. But no, Fujifilm had to be running this awesome promo on a camera that would be really spectacular for landscape photography (which is my favorite genre but not the one that I get paid for...ever), so what did I do, I got the landscape camera. It is a bit big and clunky but I find it easy enough to use, not quite as dial-tastic as my old X-T1 but still easy enough to change what I need to change quickly and easily. I've used it on vacation and for a couple family photo shoots so far and I love the results. The AF is slower than my Sony, but not so much that it is a huge issue. We shall see when I shoot an event later this month how much I use the Fuji and how much I defer to the Sony for action shots.

    Great Medium Format

    Excellent medium digital format, for an affordable price and with dimensions of a small DSLR. I'm really enjoying the quality of the images and everything else, before I used a Nikon D750.

    Near Perfect

    Coming from the professional world of film photography, this is a welcome addition. With the rising price of film, I looked for an option to my hasselblad. With its affordable medium format sensor this fit the bill. Using an adapter so that I can use my old lenses, the transition was almost seamless. Though somewhat skeptical of image stabilization, this has greatly streamlined my process. I can get away with using just a monopod where I previously had to use a tripod. And the sensor is beautiful. I only shoot in raw and have so far loved the sensor. I only wish it was more like the raw format in Black Magic cameras. Over saturated colors seem out of place in this camera. The build quality of the camera is very good. No it doesnt shoot like a sports camera but neither did my hasselblad. That would be a misuse of this camera. But Fuji has a made a couple odd choices. Most notably the joy stick. Its too small and nothing like some other cameras I have owned. Also the viewfinder level is a bare minimum. Just a line across the screen. With a medium format camera this is an essential item and should be more in line in what you get in mid-range Nikons. The tilting viewfinder is nice but for medium format not that useful. Some have complained about the evf but Ive had no problem with it. The image is what matters and its beautiful.

    Best decision ever!

    I admit I was hesitant to purchase after reading reviews about facial tracking, but this isn't a feature I have ever been dependent on as a photographer before and I refused to rely on this as a final decision when going medium format. I'm glad I wasn't deterred. After upgrading to latest firmware and adjusting metering and focus to settings that work for a manual portrait shooter like myself, I simply could not be more happy with my decision. I also purchased the 80mm lens along with the kit lens and both lenses are superb. I truly didn't know what I had been missing until I saw the first set of images from this sensor. I continue to modify settings to my liking as they are literally limitless. I fully expect this experience to only get better and better! Thank you FujiFilm for bringing my work to entire new level because after 36 years I can truly say this system inspires me more every time I use it!

    I finally bought it and I love it. Thanks B&H for sending it quickly. I'm having a really fun time taking photos with it. The medium format is amazing. The camera is lightweight and not too big - easy to hike with. Finally, my shots look like I imagine them in my mind!

    Photographing Original and Cultural Heritage Art

    By Wilbur
    Rated 5 out of 5
    Date: 2022-06-27

    I have been using Fuji GFX 50S II for a couple of weeks and I love the picture quality. My company photographs original art pieces and cultural heritage art. Over 22 years I have gone from film to digital. I have used Nikon, Canon, BetterLight scanning back, Hasselblad and now the Fuji GFX 50S II. The Fuji beats them all for image quality and color accuracy and RAW file size. The camera will produce a 1.3 gigaprixel 16 bit file right out of the camera. I primarily use the Pixel Shift function for shooting art. I plan on using the Fuji for photographing panoramas of large art pieces using my Rodeon Pixplorer. I also love the articulated LCD display since I shoot from a tripod/camera stand. One of the downsides of the camera (since I am a Canon shooter) are the menus. It has menus everwhere! Also, I have to adjust to the mirrorless camera.

    hard AF focus in low light

    Date: 2022-11-15

    Been using the Fujifilm for two days now and I should have read the reviews, the contrast detect focus will not work for my photo work. I like to shoot in low light and without phase detect AF this camera is useless. Works fine for bright landscape work, but even that it takes too long to focus. The camera is very well built and will be looking at getting the GFX 100s which has phase AF.

    the images are just beautiful. the color is spot one. I'm using my old Mamiya 150mm with adapter and just wow, used AWB and the color is perfect and images are gorgeous. a bit of a learning curve and with so many menus and sub menus that you can get lost. I use custom settings and that made changing lens just a turn on the dial and done.

    Does the camera equipped with the leaf shutter? What the flash maximum sync speed? Thanks for answers!
    Asked by: Erik
    The FUJIFILM GFX 50S II Medium Format Mirrorless Camera has a mechanical focal plane shutter and an electronic shutter, not a leaf shutter. The maximum standard flash sync speed would be 1/125th second. If you use a flash that supports FP High-Speed Sync, then the maximum flash sync speed that may be used would be 1/4,000th second.

    Very novice question. Can Nikon DSLR lenses be used with this Lumix camera using some kind of adapter?
    Asked by: Amruthraj
    Lumix is Panasonic, this is a Fuji camera. Yes there are several different adapters available, whether or not the lens vignettes will depend on which lens you use. There is also a Laowa optical adapter which expands the field of view and adds a 1.4x multiplication factor that allows almost all lenses to completely cover the sensor.

    What does 35mm crop mode do on a native GFX lens? ...

    What does 35mm crop mode do on a native GFX lens? Say you had the 80mm F/1.7 which works out to be a 63mm F/1.3 in full frame terms. Does that 35mm crop mode turn the lens into a true 80mm F/1.7?
    Asked by: Guadalupe
    Correct, medium format lenses are all mesure by 35mm equivalency. When you attached a FUJIFILM GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR Lens to a medium format sensor it's angle of view becomes 63mm lens. If you select the 35mm format mode on your FUJIFILM GFX 50S II Medium Format Mirrorless Camera then your 80mm lens angle of view will remain as true 80mm lens.
