NEW MEDIUM-FOR­MAT MIR­ROR­LESS UN­VEILED

Fu­ji­film has an­nounced two medium-for­mat cam­eras at Pho­tok­ina 2018

Digital Photograper - - News -

The Fu­ji­film GFX 100 is un­der devel­op­ment and a work­ing pro­to­type is not yet avail­able, but we were able to get a spe­cial hands-on ses­sion with the GFX 50R. This a brand-new, rangefinder-style ver­sion of the ex­ist­ing GFX 50S. The GFX 50S is a mod­u­lar de­sign styled like a DSLR for the max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity; the new GFX 50R is a smaller, lighter and slim­mer cam­era de­signed for speed and porta­bil­ity. Tech­ni­cally, the two cam­eras are very sim­i­lar. The GFX 50S and 50R use the same 50-megapixel sen­sor, aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem, lenses and lens mount. The dif­fer­ence is in the de­sign of the body, and the price. At £3,999 body only and £4,500 with the 63mm f2.8 stan­dard lens, the GFX 50R will be the cheap­est medium-for­mat cam­era ever. We’re told the price of the GFX 50S is set to drop too. It looks like the raft of full-frame cam­eras at this year’s Pho­tok­ina face a pair of un­ex­pected ri­vals.
