Fu­ji­film’s done more than sim­ply throw more pix­els at the X-T2. Though it’s sim­i­lar in de­sign to the X-T1, the X-T2 boasts some con­sid­er­able up­grades from its pre­de­ces­sor, mak­ing the camera an all-rounder that’s equally at home with ul­tra-wides, large tele­pho­tos, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. Equipped with a 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sen­sor, paired with Fu­ji­film’s own X-Pro­ces­sor Pro en­gine, the camera cap­tures fine de­tail quickly and with low noise, at sen­si­tiv­i­ties up to an ex­tended range of ISO 51,200. This pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion al­lows for rapid im­age cap­ture at up to 8fps, and a max­i­mum shut­ter speed of 1/8000s. It also gives grunt to the camera’s 4K video ca­pa­bil­i­ties, and an In­tel­li­gent Hy­brid AF sys­tem, which boasts an in­cred­i­ble 325 points to en­sure ac­cu­rate, fast track­ing, even in low light. As the X-T2’s slightly smaller, slightly les­s­ex­pen­sive sib­ling, Fu­ji­film’s X-T20 re­places the X-T10 and brings with it a host of new fea­tures. Stay­ing true to the X-se­ries func­tional de­sign ethos, it com­bines an SLR-style viewfinder and Fu­ji­film’s tac­tile and time­less dial-based op­er­a­tion. While a com­pact com­pan­ion, it packs a punch, with the same 24.3MP sen­sor–and–pro­ces­sor combo boasted by the X-T2. As a re­sult, the camera of­fers burst shoot­ing of up to 8fps, so­phis­ti­cated 325-point con­tin­u­ous AF, and 4K video ca­pa­bil­i­ties. While the GFX 50S shares a lot of what users love about the X-se­ries line-up, it’s cre­ated a cat­e­gory of its own — it’s Fu­ji­film’s first medium-for­mat camera since the days of film. Char­ac­ter­ized by its large sen­sor and ad­vanced imag­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, the Fu­ji­film GFX 50S com­bines an out­stand­ing 51.4MP CMOS sen­sor and an X-Pro­ces­sor Pro im­age pro­ces­sor to ren­der bril­liant colour, as well as an ex­tended sen­si­tiv­ity range from ISO 50 right through to a mas­sive 102,400. It also makes for crisp brights and deep, vel­vety shad­ows, ren­dered by way of an ex­tremely wide 14 stops of dynamic range. A plea­sure to shoot with, the GFX 50S of­fers a large 3.69-mil­lion dot OLED elec­tronic viewfinder, and a tilt­ing 3.2-inch LCD touch­screen that sup­ports work­ing from high and low an­gles.For­ward-think­ing and with film-in­spired de­sign, the GFX 50S is a mas­ter of im­age-mak­ing.
