Digital camera Physique and Design

Earlier than we dive right into a run-down of the digital camera’s design, it is best to undoubtedly watch our hands-on video under for an ideal take a look at the 50R in comparison with the 50S and different cameras.

That is the first space of differentiation between the GFX 50R and the GFX 50S. The place the GFX 50S is formed extra like a DSLR digital camera and features a removable digital viewfinder on the highest and a slightly substantial bulge behind the rear show for the battery, the GFX 50R is formed extra like a rangefinder. The GFX 50S is a posh form, which some have described as unattractive. The GFX 50R, then again, is a usually rectangular block with a significantly easier, extra streamlined aesthetic.

Designed like a rangefinder, the digital viewfinder is situated within the prime left nook of the digital camera slightly than on prime. One other distinction between the GFX 50R and its 50S sibling is that the 50R doesn’t have a battery bulge on the again. The distinction in general measurement with respect to depth is appreciable, with the GFX 50R having a most depth of two.62 inches (66.Four millimeters) versus three.6 inches (91.Four millimeters).

Contemplating different dimensions, in case you examine to the GFX 50S with its digital viewfinder hooked up, the digital camera is 5.81 inches (147.5 millimeters) large, Four.48 inches (113.8mm) tall and has the utmost depth of three.6 inches talked about above. The GFX 50R is wider at 6.33 inches (160.7mm) and shorter at three.eight inches (96.5mm). For those who take away the digital viewfinder of the GFX 50S, it’s three.71 inches (94.2mm) tall, which is barely shorter than the GFX 50R — which has a built-in digital viewfinder. With the EVF hooked up, the GFX 50S weighs 32.5 ounces (920 grams) and the GFX 50R weighs 27.three ounces (775 grams).

Returning to the digital viewfinder, the GFX 50R has a zero.5-inch OLED panel which gives 100 % body protection and zero.77x magnification. That is decrease magnification than the GFX 50S, which provides zero.85x magnification. Each cameras’ EVFs have three.69 million dots, so the first distinction seems to be when it comes to the optics inside the viewfinder fairly than the underlying know-how. The GFX 50R additionally provides two levels much less angle of view (38 versus 40). Lastly, in contrast to the GFX 50S’ digital viewfinder, the GFX 50R can’t be used with Fujifilm’s non-compulsory tilting viewfinder.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

Equally, the rear touchscreen LCD has principally the identical know-how. The GFX 50R has a three.2-inch Four:three show with roughly 2,360Okay dots and full 100 % body protection. Nevertheless, in contrast to the GFX 50S, the GFX 50R’s show tilts in two instructions quite than three (up and down versus up, down and to the aspect). Additional, the GFX 50R doesn’t have a prime show just like the GFX 50S, which presents a customizable 1.28-inch monochrome LCD standing display close to the shutter launch.

As for the ruggedness of the GFX 50R, it’s weather-sealed in 64 places. It’s designed to be weather- and dust-resistant, plus it may be operated in temperatures as little as 14 levels Fahrenheit (-10 levels Celsius). The digital camera is constructed utilizing a magnesium alloy physique and its two prime dials are constructed of milled aluminum.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

The first takeaway is that the GFX 50R is smaller and lighter than the GFX 50S. In some methods, notably with respect to depth, it’s significantly smaller. That stated, the GFX 50S has an ample entrance grip, one thing the GFX 50R lacks.

Picture Sensor

The GFX 50R consists of the identical Fujifilm G Format 51.Four-megapixel medium-format picture sensor. The sensor is just not a “full-size” medium format sensor, however is as an alternative 43.eight x 32.9 millimeters, which whereas a good bit bigger than a full-frame picture sensor shouldn’t be as giant because the medium-format sensor present in cameras just like the Part One IQ4 150MP, for instance. With that stated, the picture high quality from the GFX 50S has confirmed to be very spectacular in our laboratory and real-world testing, so we will anticipate a lot of the identical from the GFX 50R. The GFX 50R presents an ISO vary of 100 to 12,800 and could be expanded to ISO 50-102,4000.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

Just like the GFX 50S, the sensor within the GFX 50R is paired with Fujifilm’s X-Processor Professional picture processing engine, which is designed to supply high-quality shade and tone copy. To that finish, we discover the identical Fujifilm Movie Simulation modes: Provia, Velvia, Astia, Basic Chrome, Professional Neg. Hello, Professional Neg. Std, Black and White (normal, yellow, pink and inexperienced filters), Sepia and Acros (commonplace, yellow, pink and inexperienced filters). Equally, additionally, you will discover similar crop modes on the GFX 50R, together with: Four:three (51.1 megapixels), 5:Four (48.0MP), three:2 (45.4MP), 16:9 (38.3MP), 1:1 (38.3MP) and quite a few smaller sizes, together with a 12-megapixel Four:three file. The GFX 50R data RAW pictures at as much as 14 bits of depth in uncompressed or lossless compressed settings and may produce 24-bit TIFF information by way of in-camera RAW conversion.

Digging additional into the nitty-gritty particulars of the picture sensor, it presents a pixel pitch of about 5.31 microns and doesn’t embrace an anti-aliasing filter. Additional, in comparison with a full-frame sensor, the GFX 50R’s sensor has a ~zero.79x focal size multiplier. In sensible phrases, this leads to a lens such because the GF 32-64mm f/Four providing a 35mm-equivalent focal size of about 25-51mm. The sensor can also be self-cleaning by way of ultrasonic vibration.

Autofocus and Efficiency

The GFX 50R has the identical autofocus system because the GFX 50S, which incorporates contrast-detect autofocus and 425 autofocus factors. The autofocus space covers a big portion of the picture body and may be utilized by way of single level (six sizes), Zone AF and Extensive/Monitoring AF space modes. The digital camera provides face and eye-detect autofocus, together with left versus proper eye precedence and has topic monitoring steady autofocus. The GFX 50R helps contact AF as nicely.

The GFX 50S isn’t a quick digital camera, neither is the 50R. The digital camera can shoot pictures at as much as three frames per second and has an uncompressed RAW buffer depth of eight frames (or 13 frames in case you are utilizing lossless compressed RAW file high quality). It’s value mentioning that we acquired higher RAW buffer depths for the 50S within the lab with the identical steady mode specs, so will probably be fascinating to see how the 50R fares on this respect.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

The GFX 50R has a focal aircraft shutter system which gives shutter speeds starting from 60 minutes to 1/4000s. There’s an digital shutter as nicely, which provides shutter speeds as quick as 1/16,000s. Relating to flash sync, in contrast to digital camera techniques which make the most of leaf shutters of their lenses, the GFX has a flash sync of 1/125s, which is significantly slower than one thing just like the Hasselblad X1D but in addition a bit slower than trendy full-frame cameras.

With respect to capturing performance, the digital camera gives bracketing as much as 9 frames (with as much as +/- three EV), +/- 5 EV value of publicity compensation, Auto ISO performance and TTL 256-zone metering. The obtainable metering modes embrace Multi, Spot, Common and Middle-weighted, with the spot metering mode being tied to the lively autofocus level.

Video

Video options weren’t notably good on the GFX 50S and the story stays the identical with the GFX 50R. The GFX 50R can document Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) video at as much as 29.97p with a bit fee of as much as 36Mbps for 30 minutes. The digital camera may also report 720p video which additionally tops out at 29.97p.

Connectivity, Storage and Energy

The addition of Bluetooth connectivity is among the main variations between the GFX 50S and GFX 50R. The GFX 50R has Bluetooth model Four.zero low power know-how and this Bluetooth connectivity permits for geotagging of photographs, picture switch, picture viewing, printing to an Instax printer, auto picture switch and distant management performance.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

Taking a look at ports, there are some variations between the GFX 50R and GFX 50S. The GFX 50R opts for a mixed 2.5mm mic/distant jack in lieu of separate three.5mm microphone and headphone jacks and a 2.5mm distant jack. Additional, the GFX 50R makes use of USB Sort-C (USB three.1 Gen 1) port whereas the GFX 50S used a Micro USB three.zero (Micro-B) terminal. It’s situated on the underside of the digital camera this time, subsequent to the 15V DC IN connector and not helps Fuji’s Distant Launch RR-90. The 50R nonetheless features a Micro Sort-D HDMI port, a PC sync terminal and naturally, a scorching shoe.

Just like the GFX 50S, the GFX 50R writes to SD/SDHC/SDXC playing cards — UHS-II is advisable — and options two card slots. The GFX 50R additionally makes use of the identical NP-T125 lithium-ion battery pack which is CIPA-rated at as much as 400 photographs per cost, similar to the 50S.

GFX 50R versus 50S

When you think about the imaging pipeline of the GFX 50R, it’s equivalent to the GFX 50S. This can be a widespread theme with the GFX 50R as a number of its capturing options are shared with the GFX 50S. The place the 2 cameras differ probably the most is when it comes to their design and look. The GFX 50R, as we’ve seen, opts for a rangefinder-like design which is finally easier than the design of the GFX 50S. Some individuals might favor the look of the 50S, however we suspect most will contemplate the 50R a extra attractive-looking digital camera.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

Seems are solely a part of the equation. The 50R has decrease viewfinder magnification, doesn’t have as many bodily controls because the 50S, lacks a prime standing show and its rear touchscreen tilts in two instructions moderately than the three instructions provided by the 50S’ rear show. Additional, the 50S can take a vertical battery grip to enhance ergonomics for portrait orientation capturing and drastically enhance the battery life, an choice the 50R doesn’t seem to supply.

When it comes to buttons and controls, the GFX 50S has a devoted ISO dial whereas the 50R opts for a devoted publicity compensation dial however no devoted ISO dial. The GFX 50S additionally has directional navigation buttons, which may be assigned to be totally different perform buttons. The GFX 50R makes use of the sub-selector focus level joystick for menu navigation and in addition strikes the menu and playback buttons from the highest of the show to the best aspect.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

The 50R opts for USB-C as an alternative of Micro USB three.zero however loses three.5mm microphone and headphone jacks, providing as an alternative a mixed 2.5mm mic/distant enter however no headphone jack. For each cameras, video performance just isn’t notably spectacular, topping out at 1080/30p recording.

Maybe most notably, the GFX 50R can also be significantly inexpensive than the GFX 50S. When the GFX 50S isn’t on sale, it’s $2,000 greater than the GFX 50R in america. The 50S is at present on sale for beneath $6,000, however the distinction in worth is nonetheless vital.

Fuji 50R Review -- Product Image

Ahhh… to have Medium Format in a rangefinder-styled physique sporting 50mp that prices a couple of thousand dollars lower than the unique GFX 50S… Now that’s the promise of the Fuji GFX 50R. We got a prototype of the digital camera final week, forward of the announcement, after which a couple of days later have been advised that we might truly shoot with it within the area… so straight out the door I went!

I went to fields with flowers, fields with insect life, even to a soccer area. I searched and waited for the rising moon, and for any dramatic skies I might discover to convey you examples of what a sensor this highly effective might convey. And, whereas solely a prototype pattern, I did let the ISO climb every now and then as nicely. In any case, Fuji our bodies have traditionally shined brightly in higher-ISO competitions, with the GFX 50S itself setting a brand new report for max print measurement whereas dialed to ISO 51,200!

However principally, I simply had loads of enjoyable capturing with this extremely succesful, large-sensor digital camera.

Shiny noon solar: The dynamic vary afforded by a sensor as giant because the one housed within the 50R might help tame even harsh summer time solar within the Southeastern U.S. This shot with a smartphone or perhaps a digital camera with a a lot smaller sensor would most definitely present blown out faces and a severely overblown sky missing a lot element.

Clicking any picture will take you to a service web page with entry to the unique, full-resolution picture as delivered by the GFX 50R. These photographs are from a prototype pattern, and are subsequently labeled as “beta” — ultimate picture high quality might differ barely.

GFX 50R: A contemporary, beefy “rangefinder”

Earlier than shifting on to the gallery samples, let’s speak concerning the GFX 50R within the palms. I had the privilege of capturing with the unique GFX 50S shortly after it was unveiled for an preliminary gallery piece and was duly surprised by the picture high quality. However in fact the texture of that digital camera within the arms is way totally different from the brand new 50R, as they’re merely “different beasts” of their general exterior designs.

Fujifilm GFX-50R - Product Image

Fujifilm GFX 50R within the hand (proven with the GF 63mm f/2.eight)

Simply as Fujifilm provides the X-Professional collection (rangefinder-styled) alongside the X-T collection (DSLR-styled), each outfitted equally beneath the hood, this split-type collection concept now makes its approach to their GFX Medium Format choices. The one huge distinction aside from exterior form is that the GFX 50R is priced far lower than the unique 50S, which runs about $1500 greater. So whereas not a cheap digital camera to make certain, the 50R is now probably the most modestly-priced Medium Format providing out there, which ought to definitely flip the heads of some panorama and portrait shooters who’ve been ready for a extra reasonably priced entry level into this engaging realm.

Having a digital camera this massive however with no historically deep grip took some getting used to at first. There’s a small entrance grip, and the rear thumb grip is beefy and beneficiant, however I nonetheless felt compelled to shortly add a wrist strap for security. The digital camera is just bigger than any rangefinder-style digital camera I’ve but held, and is harking back to fashions from bygone days within the movie period. I really like the aesthetic, however once more it took some getting used to out in the actual world, particularly within the scorching, humid days in Atlanta the place perspiration is a given.

The 50R controls are rock-solid, as I’d each hoped and anticipated. The metallic dials are agency and reassuring, and the shutter velocity dial has a locking mechanism as nicely. Each photographer is totally different of their private preferences relating to exterior controls, however for me there isn’t any substitute for precise dials. Easy, strong, old style dials. I really like them, am hooked on them, and as soon as I don’t have them I get upset and lose my bearing. Hey, to every his personal, as that simply occurs to be the best way I’m. With the ability to look by means of the EVF whereas I’m adjusting the devoted shutter velocity dial to go well with the shot is simply superior to me, or aperture, or EV, and with our bodies from Fujifilm that’s precisely what you get. Nothing extra, nothing much less, quite simple.

Fujifilm GFX-50R - Product Image

Fujifilm GFX-50R – Controls

They’ve eliminated the Four-way dial and related buttons from the again, which at first appeared slightly bizarre. However the joystick takes the place of it for probably the most half, and the joystick is, um, a pleasure to make use of. When you’ve had one at your disposal for jockeying your AF level you’ll see what I imply and can miss it if you change to a digital camera with out one. My proper hand continually goes forwards and backwards to and from the dials and the joystick. Oh, and very similar to on the 50S, having the AF change (S, C, M) close to the place your thumb sits is superior. Fuji typically places this change on the entrance of their cameras, and that has all the time appeared counter-intuitive to me. Now it’s in a logical place that’s straightforward to succeed in (and keep in mind!).

With this preliminary prototype pattern I discovered autofocus to be quick and responsive, and correct as properly. With the super-shallow depths of area offered by vibrant lenses on an enormous sensor, you definitely need to pay shut consideration, however that’s not the digital camera’s fault. The facility afforded to photographers with this mix is superior, however the studying curve closely will increase as nicely. I discovered myself concentrating extra on the capturing than ever earlier than, or at the very least similarly to once I shot with the GFX 50S. However wow, whenever you nail focus, the rewards are vital.

We’ll talk about dealing with in deeper element in a forthcoming Subject Check as soon as we obtain our full manufacturing pattern. And for a complete 50R hands-on video please click on right here!

50R: Pictures from the sector

Let’s head out into the sector and try the picture potential from this rangefinder-esque magnificence!

Dreamscape: That is shot in my boring little again yard, and that’s the great thing about a digital camera like this. The in any other case boring can shortly turn into chic.

The Simulator

As talked about earlier I’ve solely had a couple of days with this pattern up to now, and luckily the climate cooperated for the capturing time. I’m an enormous fan of Fuji’s Movie Simulations, so I’ve tried to provide you a superb assortment on this preliminary piece as nicely. I shot a part of the piece in Movie Simulation bracketing, the place the digital camera captures one RAW file however offers three Movie Sims (user-chosen) as JPEG information. This offers plenty of flexibility throughout picture culling, as you’ll be able to shortly select a very good start line for rendering your remaining picture (even when you determine to course of from RAW).

My private favorites are Basic Chrome, Professional Neg Normal and Velvia, so that you’ll see numerous these right here. I additionally delved into a number of of the comparatively new Acros presets, which I’d solely gotten to make use of on a number of events earlier than. They’re a ton of enjoyable to make use of and may actually add tone and texture to a picture earlier than any post-processing want happen. In a fast-paced and chaotic world I take pleasure in this as a profit, as a result of whereas I take pleasure in post-processing, I typically merely don’t have a lot time for it.

The Requirements: I exploit Professional Neg Normal greater than some other movie simulation, kind of a “go-to” for me within the Fujifilm world, because it merely has a timeless high quality for portraits and such. It removes “digital sterility” for me earlier than I even want to the touch the pictures.

Utilizing your decision

One of many main benefits to a digital camera like this in fact is the beneficiant 50mp decision you’re offered! There are valuable few cameras obtainable that go this excessive. Along with the promise of large print sizes, this additionally affords ample cropping potential, and listed here are a couple of examples the place I wanted to make use of it just because I couldn’t get shut sufficient to my quarry with out scaring them away.

50R: An unlikely sports activities digital camera

The GFX 50R gained’t doubtless be mistaken for a high-end sports activities digital camera, nor would I take one to knowledgeable sporting occasion (until, in fact, I used to be employed to shoot portraits of the athletes!). However when you purchase one in every of these and now have a toddler in a sport like soccer, you could need to tote it alongside for the sport, and that’s precisely what I did.

I used Steady AF and steady drive mode by way of a lot of the sport. The digital camera didn’t really feel like a high-end sports activities digital camera, and I acquired far fewer keepers than misses, however a number of that comes right down to very shallow depth of area and in addition merely being new to the digital camera. It’s also a prototype pattern, so the ultimate C-AF changes are possible but to be made. However the picture high quality is second to none and so the capturing expertise was nonetheless an pleasurable one, particularly since I knew to not anticipate anyplace close to the type of efficiency you’d get from a high-end sports activities digital camera.

Dynamics: These are the kind of photographs that the GFX 50R lends itself to with aplomb. With most cameras, and nearly all smartphones, that shiny Georgia sky can be utterly blown out and unusable. One aspect profit I ought to point out to capturing the GFX 50R in a public place: The digital camera itself turns heads! Purchase one and also you’ll see…

Summing all of it up

Utilizing a medium format digital camera to seize pictures is like utilizing a high-end microphone to seize a singer within the studio. The bump up in picture high quality from enthusiast-grade gear is probably not big, however when you’ve skilled it, there’s a noticeable distinction that simply can’t be achieved with lesser gear. To date, and even with this prototype, the GFX 50R is able to producing astounding pictures, even within the arms of this non-professional photographer. I’m fairly positive I’ll be sneaking the complete manufacturing pattern out of our lab on weekends as soon as one arrives.
