How good is Fu­ji­film’s GFX 50S medium-for­mat cam­era for shoot­ing scen­ics? Two London Cam­era Ex­change cus­tomers find out…

Field-tested On pa­per, the GFX 50S is the per­fect

choice for land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers. It of­fers a 51.4MP, 43.8 x 32.9mm CMOS sen­sor, a weather-re­sis­tant de­sign and a light weight – at 740g body-only, it’s lighter than a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. This is a mir­ror­less cam­era that should be just as at home shoot­ing in the great outdoors as it is in the stu­dio. To find out if that’s the case, we spent a day in the Bre­con Bea­cons Na­tional Park with two cus­tomers from London Cam­era Ex­change’s Strand branch. In ad­di­tion to the GFX 50S, each pho­tog­ra­pher was given a Fu­ji­non GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR wide-an­gle lens and a GF 32-64mm f/4 LM WR zoom. Stan­dard NDs and ND grads came cour­tesy of LEE Fil­ters.

Pro help Sanj and Wes were ac­com­pa­nied by Dig­i­talCam­era con­tribut­ing ed­i­tor Marcus Hawkins, who was on hand for ad­vice.
