Techradar Best in Class 2017

Expert review by: Phil Hall (techradar.com)

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

 

Fujifilm skips full-frame and goes straight to medium format

Breathtaking image quality ; Ergonomic controls ; Weather-sealed body ; Very accurate AF

Only 1/125 sec flash sync ; Awkward exposure comp. control ; AF is slow

The Fujifilm GFX 50S isn't a camera designed for speed junkies, but if you're prepared to shoot in the slightly more methodical manner the camera demands you'll be rewarded with some truly stunning results. The hefty price will persuade many that...

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

 

Medium format, big appeal

Richly detailed shots ; Weatherproof build ; User-friendly ; More compact than many MF cameras

That price tag ; Limited video options and no 4K ; Not built for speed

Not cheap, but no camera we've tested takes better photos than this

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...

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 50S added to our studio test scene

 

Now that we've got the Fujifilm GFX 50S back to our studio, we've been able to shoot our test scene and write a preliminary assessment of its image quality. Does it live up to those large sensor, high pixel count expectations? Read more

Fujifilm GFX 50S Review

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S is a compact system camera with a 51.4 megapixel 43.8mm x 32.9mm medium-format CMOS sensor. The weatherproof GFX 50S features Raw images with 14-bit color depth and 14 stops of dynamic range, ISO range of 50-102400, 1080p video...

The Fujifilm GFX 50S magically offers medium-format image quality in a camera body that's comparable in size and weight to a 35mm full-frame DSLR. Being able to use a camera with such a large sensor both in and out of a studio environment is something...

Fujifilm GFX Review

 

The Fujifilm GFX 50S and its over 50-megapixel medium format sensor deliver excellent image quality and resolving power. The mirrorless camera offers decent performance for its class, but its superb imaging capabilities come with compromises, such as...

Fantastic image quality across the board; Excellent RAW dynamic range; Superb high ISO performance; Functional and user-friendly body; Robust weather-sealed construction; Detachable EVF; Tilting touchscreen; Very good lens quality

Slow AF speeds; Performance can't compete with high-end full-frame cameras; Limited native lens selection so far; Expensive accessories; Unimpressive JPEG dynamic range; 1/125s maximum flash sync
