Hands-On with the Fuji GFX 50S Medium Format Mirrorless Camera


Fujifilm “won” Photokina. There’s no real doubt about that. With the announcement of the mirrorless medium format Fuji GFX 50S, they stole the show. But what does the camera actually feel like IRL. And how big it is compared to, say, a Fuji X-T1?

Mathieu Gasquet of MirrorLessons.com answers these questions and more in this quick hands-on video he put together during his time with the GFX at Photokina.

Gasquet goes over everything—from recapping the announcement, to actually showing you the camera and describing how it feels in-hand, to talking about the six GF lenses Fuji already has in development for the mirrorless monster. What’s more, by placing it next to the new X-T2, the video gives you a sense of how big (or, rather, how small) the camera really is.




Check out the video at the top to learn more, and if you want to get a better sense of what Fuji is talking about when they say they’ve put a “medium format” sensor in this camera, read our image sensor size comparison here.
