Fujifilm Expands GFX Series


Fujifilm has announced the release of GFX50S II as the latest addition to the GFX Series of mirrorless digital cameras equipped with a large format sensor.

The GFX50S II is equipped with a 51.4MP large format sensor with a specialise­d design that uses small light-collecting micro lenses on the sensor to create a wider gap between adjacent pixels, thereby boosting light resolution per pixel for added image sharpness. It comes with as many as 19 Film Simulation­s, including “Nostalgic Neg.,” developed for the launch of the GFX100S and characteri­sed by high saturation and soft tonality.

The device features a five-axis image stabilisat­ion mechanism that provides up to 6.5 stops of advantage. It boasts of a fast and high-precision AF system assisted by a large-format high resolution sensor, high-speed image processing engine “X-Processor 4” and an image stabilisat­ion mechanism operated with the latest algorithm. The camera weighs approximat­ely 900 g and measures 104.2 mm high and 87.2 mm deep. The casing is made of magnesium alloy and is weather-sealed at 60 locations to offer dust- and moisturere­sistance and ability to operate in temperatur­es as low as - 10 °C.

The top panel features the Mode dial and offers six customisab­le positions

C1 – C6, along with a selector to instantly switch between the still and video modes. A 1.8-inch sub LCD monitor is also found on the top panel, displaying key EXIF settings such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivit­y and exposure. Additional informatio­n displayed includes the number of frames remaining when shooting stills and the remaining filing duration when recording video. On the rear panel is a 3.2-inch main LCD monitor with 100% coverage. It can tilt in three directions to enable high- and low-angle shooting.

The device also features the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function that is reportedly capable of creating 200MP images free of false colour presentati­on. The Fujifilm GFX50S II is scheduled to release at a recommende­d retail price of USD 3,999.
