For me the advantage of MF is in print. You can also find the additional questions and answers concerning some particular features of the GFX 50R. I took her photos many times and she loves that 105mm F1.4 because it makes the image looks magical and she never were that impressed. We see what we want to see. I agree, it's wide, but just not wide enought. Yes Manzur I think you are a man of collecting many toys and results come second to you. These medium format sensors are barely larger than FF. Good luck with your 8500 dollar 100MP FF+ camera. You should easily be able to provide quality images from both cameras demonstrating those clear differences. With my D810 or D850, I can grab it, point it, and shoot almost instantly. Just don't tell me Canon EOS R (5DMk4) against PhaseOne... What sort of processing? You will be fine with MFT, APSC or FF. This camera does it differently than that, or FF. Does Fuji expect me to buy this instead of a D850? Wait, buyers of these cameras probably don't frequent forums. I am a little bit confused. We will need to wait longer until FF hits the 100MP and I'm not sure if the current FF lenses can perform above 100MP (or even 80MP). You should try out full frame to see if you like it. Will your audience see the different gradations in tone color in the sunset or the difference in readability on signs? ecka84, if you want a finished result to evaluate of the 50R raw, here's a (rather quickly done) HDR result of the DPReview scene using the 50R raw, processed in Capture One, taken multiple exposures through Photomatix, and then resized to 30x40. Yet, I have had so many GFX shooters tell me that the GFX blows their Sony, Canon or Nikon FF high-res sensor out of the water and that it is not even close. The fine detail is noticeable in print. In a camera that adds more analog gain with each ISO step, you'd need to drop the ISO to reduce gain or reduce the exposure (which would increase photon shot noise). No, I don't think we did. I was disappointed by usability, it just a pain to use a GFX compared to any DSLR, maybe we can get used to it over time, but even when getting used to the camera , it's never going to be as comfortable as Canon/Nikon/Pentax full frame bodies. An artistic tool which has existed a little while before social media, or even digital cameras or monitors. Moreover the D850 has optically stabilized lenses available which again provide a few stop advantage to the D850 , and the 50r doesn't have that advantage because GFX lenses aren't stabilized. The image quality is better that all of those cameras and the glass incredible. Nasim Mansurov is the author and founder of Photography Life, based out of Denver, Colorado. Not talking about Hasselblad H6D or Phase One here. Was that comment about full-frame being a sinking ship meant to be sarcastic? FF is still better in terms of DoF and light gathering capabilities, considering the lenses that are currently available. There is a point when sensor size makes a difference that cannot be argued. But other than that, I will love to learn where the advantage of Fuji GFX is. The GFX 50R is a rangefinder style, which has been reborn through the history of medium format cameras. The images, when viewed through the LCD screen and then on my iMac, are probably the best I have seen in terms of image quality . Fuji isn't diffraction limitted at f/8. Wait, I've been typing for 45 seconds. Tonality to dribble at, **file latitude +++**, DR, and the spacial separation at any given f stop that one should expect with a larger sensor. Result? The Fujifilm GFX 50R and the Fujifilm X-Pro3 are two digital cameras that were officially introduced, respectively, in September 2018 and October 2019. A new product, Wristcam, aims to change this by incorporating a pair of cameras in an Apple Watch band. We're taking a look back through 2019 by focusing on one of our all-time favorite photographic subjects – Belvedere, a rescue pup who joined the DPReview team last fall and graced many of our sample galleries over the past 12 months. It doesn't mean that its sensor isn't superior. It is like trying to quantify one's wealth by counting things you don't have. Always been the case with most things. Back in film days I had a Pentax 645 and later a Bronica RF645. LOL! If they came out with a 16-80mm F2.8, I might keep the X-T3 but with their current selection of lenses, I find none I can live with. For me that would be probably 3 elements - 1. When you go full frame, you typically get 1 more stop of background blur and 1 more stop of high-ISO performance. I'll always hope. That would be silly. Since the sensor size of the GFX vs FF is only about 1.22x and 1.33, a good primes on FF will bridge the gap. So, for the 50r, I ran them through Capture One, made multiple exposures, ran them through HDR Photomatix, resized result to 30x40. We've set the Fujifilm to F10 and the Nikon to F8, meaning both are shooting with a roughly 4.5mm aperture diameter, giving the same depth-of-field. FYI I lowered sharpening as far down as I can go on both pics. And I agree with everything Felts is saying. @Kris2403 - I think you've answered your own question with your last sentence. Smaller sensors are about zooming. ;-). Why can't Fujifilm? With a contrast-detection AF system and 1080P video, the GFX 50R isn't a barnstormer in these areas. We took it out and about in the warm Seattle summer with the company's 50 and 100 Megapixel camera bodies to see what it can do. TONALITY COLOR & ABILITY TO MANIPULATE IT, and for some "this" 3. From samples posted one could assume that even super cheappo Canon / Fuji entry level camera can handle the same <3. If you need this it really is a no-brainer. First, it’s the most affordable medium format digital camera camera yet to hit the market – it’s a full £1,000/$1,000 cheaper than the DSLR-style Fujifilm GFX 50S, the previous record-setter. Find out how the GFX 50R performs in our full review. Since its release in late 2019, users have been unable to recalibrate or fine-tune their Apple Pro Display XDR. Is that clear enough? They are both bikes, right? The FUJIFILM GFX 50R supports Full HD video recording (1920×1080, 29.97p / 25p / 24p / 23.98p, 36Mbps) and HD video recording (1280×720, 29.97p / 25p / 24p / 23.98p, 18Mbps). The Fujifilm GFX 50R ( Amazon , B&H , Adorama ) is a lighter and more compact model within the medium format mirrorless system, perfect for professional photographers who specialize in street, documentary or portrait photography. Wow. Canon and Nikon just decided that mirrorless is relevant. And let's not be silly about lenses either. z7 closeuphttps://www.dropbox.com/s/za8xuzn1pzhpvvs/Z7%20shadows.png?dl=0, 50r closeuphttps://www.dropbox.com/s/qq39k7zze2o60c1/_50r%20shadows.png?dl=0, z7 fullhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/bbkjkfhss04xid1/DSC_8592_RR_p00_25_50_tonemapped%203045.jpg?dl=0, 50r fullhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/4lnpcjn95gq4uzu/DSCF1025_p00_25_50_tonemapped%20a%203040.jpg?dl=0. That glass is a world-beater and DPR acts like it is no big deal. I think that people here are missing the fact that the 35mm sensors are so impressive because of the money being put into their development. A 100MP BSI sensor is likely to offer a very clear benefit over FF. Anyone wanting to move up to a larger sensor system would probably look into the GFX 50R and compare it to other 50-60 MP full-frame options on the market. For the 50R, some noise but pretty clean. FF and MF are not world's apart, they're almost equal/indistinguishable. LOL), but I also want to give my real world experience of the camera. interface is much better. @Duncan M This is a 2013 sensor made by Sony, not even designed for mirrorless, but Fuji and Hasselblad tweaked it to work on mirrorless cameras. December 2, 2020. Not to say that their slow glass makes for pretty long shutter speeds. To think that the only way to achieve high image quality is by using a fast lens is just foolish. yeah, no rush :). And, FWIW, based on what I see in my work, the DMF difference is major, really major to me. The haters going hate. Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji, Phase One, all good. The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a medium format camera with 51.4 million pixels, backed up by an amazing lineup of Fujifilm GF lenses… so there is obviously no doubt about the image quality. What's the point of this camera? The next logical step is a 6x9 rangefinder-styled isn't it :). AF is for "lazy photographers?" Do you mind sharing some of the points which made you to return X-T3? Any review that uses term “blows away” or “blows out of the water” can generally be disregarded. In my opinion, using the DPReview raws, I would personally go with the 50r. But nooooo. For the first time ever, I'm consistently seeing images that reflect what I saw in the scene when pressing the shutter. MF can be ruled out for sports and wildlife due to AF and focal length considerations. Don't sit on the fence, Fence Sitter. Which to choose comes down to a few features: - do you need fast af? Are you joking I can buy whatever I want when I want, so why would I be scared? That is a problem. You could say that, but they lost me as a customer, and I'm sure they've lost countless others because of this. ecka84, well then lets see your version of it. That's something people who haven't used these cameras don't get to come to realize. After the review, being a Nikon shooter I should be happy and go with Nikon. Marques Brownlee published his third annual 'Blind Smartphone Camera Test' video and the results are surprising. Oh, and thanks for at least mentioning the glass. The large, tilting touchscreen LCD is superb. Sony I use with 85mm F1.8. This particular scene requires more highlight retention than the standard JPEG, so what's the correct response? , https://blog.mingthein.com/2015/02/24/that-medium-format-look-what-is-it/. So, I definitely see GFX's advantage in situations where you need higher resolution. Bought GFX last April, bought A7r III last September. The same is going on whit lenses. The third reason is reduced background blur. I discovered later that it was due to low DOF. As soon as I open a photo book I can tell if it is Medium/large format or 35mm. But I’m exited. If you shot ISO 1600 manually (using the same exposure values as the metered ISO 6400 exposure), you'd get the same Raw data but a non-usable JPEG. If you compare sensor size differences..FF vs M4/3 = 4:1(300%)FF vs APS-C = 2.25:1(125%)MF vs FF = 1.68:1(68%)So indeed, the sensor size difference between MF(44x33) and FF is considerably smaller than that between FF and smaller sensors. It sports dual SD memory card slots, which are both compatible with fast UHS-II memory cards. And GFX 50S with 110mm F2. Yep and there are shooting situations that the Fuji just can’t handle. They needed to create a new market. "This is why PDAF pixels on a sensor take away from a STILL image quality and is why I would choose the 50r.". Despite its compact appearance, Fuji managed to cram a 3.69-million dot OLED EVF into the back of the camera, in addition to a large 3.2″ 2.36-million dot tilting touchscreen LCD. The GFX 50R's sensor is excellent but so are those of its full-frame peers. The masses are moving to full frame. For me, a Z7 (or equivalent) with a set of sharp primes will deliver similar single frame images , will cost less, easier to handle and be smaller to carry around. MTF Services is selling already-converted lenses at the moment but plans to offer a conversion service for existing lenses next year. Cyber Monday deals: see … The rear 2.36M-dot LCD monitor measures 3.2 inches and offers 100% coverage. I do not agree with the review. Sports and birds are 90% of photography, that's why GFX50S/R is only usable in rare photographic cases! As few people needed medium format in the past. Is this comparison valid? Thats pushing the files more than I did... but I lift the shadows and pull back highlights as part of my standard processing. McFern, real hauling or real bricks, for hours, and days. What’s the best camera for around $2000? by Robert K Baggs. Fujifilm GFX 50R and Fujifilm GFX 50S have the same Fujifilm G lens mount and currently there are 12 native lenses available for these cameras. And the funniest thing is that recovering the seats will cost more than a nice truck! Just like medium format film cameras in the past, the FUJIFILM GFX 50R has been developed in pursuit of a compact and lightweight system while delivering the ultimate picture quality for everyday snapshots and street photography. Capture One 21 has been released. Sure it doesn’t have a fast AF, but who cares if you don’t do sports. 2.36 Million-dot Tilting LCD, Battery Type: 1x NP-T125 Lithium-ion Battery, Dimensions: 160.7mm (W) x 96.5mm (H) x 66.4mm (D). The conversion of these low-cost lenses means S35 and almost-full frame anamorphic shooting no longer needs to cost quite so much money. The best way to know is to try it. @GoodKnight. All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998 - 2020 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. Bill Claff's PDR charts show Panasonic S1 cameras right up there with MF cameras. Why on Earth would I want to see the noise? Have a look. The GFX 50R has been designed to be more portable than the 50S. You said, "What DPR does not even mention is the fact that you would need an F1.75 MF lens to let the sensor capture as much light as a Nikon FF with a F1.4 lens mounted, and such a lens does not exist.". Compare it with my Mamiya RZ67...what do you consider ugly and relatively big? I had Canon 5D II and switched to Fuji. I like to tinker a little with my images, pushing by up to two stops (but usually less) and flattening the image by pulling back highlights/lifting shadows. Always there so many, that have negative comment, about new camera or old. I do, but I'm a sensitive guy. As for the test, find some good Pentax 67 lens and mount it on a modern crop DSLR via the adapter, and the results will blow your socks off. I love Fuji and they are making amazing product with insanely beautiful design (100F, T3), but this is not one of them. When Fujifilms 100MP sensor comes out with its improvements over the current 50MP sensor, we should be able to see what the larger sensor can provide. So image quality is barely better not even noticeable in many cases. That is what your ccomparison with FF cameras, "comparison" between two different categories, reminded me of. I wouldn't hold my breath for this sensor. count the SCUS. Once registered, this sets up a connection between your smart device and the camera. How difficult is to gather that a true specialist, if he or she has any credentials, would never compare cameras across different classes, and never test equipment not specifically designed for a certain purpose against that purpose? It shares most of its components with the existing GFX 50S, including both its sensor and processor, but re-arranges them into a slightly smaller and less expensive package. It is to get that quality and look and feel. DPR keeps repeating (over and over) that there is no real IQ advantage over their beloved FF cameras that they promote so shamelessly. If in doubt, download the Raw and compare them. Reasons are: Colours, lenses and overall per pixel quality. Yep, hardly any difference - SMH, "These medium format sensors are barely larger than FF.". Sentons is pushing this technology further with CameraBar, tech it anticipates will be utilized in smartphones next year. I looked at it, and I'm not putting up with that at any price. And I also bought a A7r III after GFX. Coming from a Sony A7iii and an xt-3, which i still use, the gfx is a completely different beast. Fuji has a tweener here and with ASPC, and it's a mistake. The factory produces an array of audio components, including analog-to-digital converters, which Inside Imaging claims are used by various Japanese camera manufacturers. By the way, I admit this is extreme, but DPReview declares the 50R not ISO invariant at +6ev, so by that criteria the Z7 falls a bit short here. Believe who you want, but I'm over the moon with it :). It's also in contrast to the most common type of photo today: the mobile phone photo. How Harley Road-King goes against superbikes in Superbike racing? Blurry background became a fad with commercials. And if Fuji builds something I want, I won't be "scared" because I'll just buy it. Then I looked at both results using a XNView to simulate looking at a printed picture somewhat close. It uses dedicated rich lens elements to achieve extremely high definition finder live view and offers a diopter adjustment range of -4m-1 to＋2m-1. Hi dpreview. LOL...I've owned plenty of Fuji gear, but you're not being honest about this particular camera. BTW, i guess the GFX sensor format/size didn’t come out of nowhere. well everything blows Sony as they don't have normal RAW with lossless compression ;). Yeah, that's what they say now. My suspicion is that subtle may be a better term, and that neither you or other viewers, just like the DPR folk, could consistently see the difference were it not for exif data. https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/2418320136/photos/3864513/z7-nx-d-no-nr-copy. Who told you that? The daguerreotype was the first commercially viable photographic process when it was introduced to the world in 1839. That's all. DarnGoodPhotos - There's the opportunity for a 2/3EV difference between full frame and 44 x 33mm medium format. It is smart to jump up to the next sensor size. Ever since Fujifilm entered the medium format market, it has been working steadily on developing the system by making highly-capable and compelling cameras at very appealing price points. We've updated our 'best cameras for travel' buying guide for those looking for a camera to bring on their next adventure, once it's safe to do so. Both of them.This is how it looks to me:https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3827214348/photos/3864544/untitled. Of course not! But camera / design and usability is a bit of shame at this price point. With a handful of safe ingredients and chemicals, you can try it out for yourself at home using a 35mm film camera. AF or MF is a SKILL. We threw one onto the Sony a7R IV and went out shooting. So it simply did not make sense for Fuji to invest in a full-frame system…, A detailed list of camera specifications is available at Fujifim.com. While this sensor is quite dated and does not have any breatkthrough technology like on-sensor phase-detection and in-body image stabilization (which the high-end Fuji GFX 100 does), it is still an excellent and very capable sensor that can produce images with very high dynamic range and excellent high-ISO performance. No more questions from my side. And since the Z7/D850 can usually tolerate very, very similar amounts of light per pixel as the GFX, and both record in the same precision (not that that makes much difference), it's difficult to find any rational source for the claimed 'tonality' differences, let alone a way to demonstrate it. Thankfully, Fuji went back to its senses with the X-T4 (which is an absolutely stunning camera, by the way), and I hope all future cameras will follow. 50r looks pretty clean at +5ev. You just said Panasonic went FF. It's just a little better than FF. GFX, X1D, 645Z all the cameras with this sensor produces amazing files. I had 2 of them. FF with the most expensive glasses will need to come further to come close to GFX. I don't know why one would call it a fad or neutral. Then why comparing gfx with FF bodies? I just could not accept the increased amount of noise and loss of detail. It's no different with any other trade or hobby whether it be cars, bicycles, stereo equipment, computers, paint brushes, makeup, clothing, etc. Think of the sensor size on Fuji GFX, Hasselblad X1D and Pentax 645 as crop-sensor medium format, because that’s what it really is. I am really puzzling over this.And if the data is being clipped, the exposure or ISO or both are too high. Really can't see any difference between 50R and Z7 (FU Nikon, will not add the space between those characters). These capable cameras should be solid and well-built, have both speed and focus for capturing fast action and offer professional-level image quality. Good AF isn't just for sports; that's silly. Alongside the announcement, Fujifilm also added a 40mm-equivalent 'pancake'-style 50mm F3.5 lens to its lineup. Both the GFX 50R and the Z7 are mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that are based on a medium format (GFX 50R) and a full frame (Z7) sensor. Maybe they sholud propose how to check tonality and "look" ;). Just don't buy MF. By the time this sensor will be affordable there will be new FF sensor available that again extend to what Fujifilm offers. But Fuji against the Nikon Z (especially D850) those are quite close because they use a Sony sensor. What do they see that DPR fails to see? But then again he’s a photographer. Good travel cameras should be small, versatile, and offer good image quality. Not significantly though. I don’t think is the true. "The large viewfinder of the GFX50 was unusable for me because I couldn't see the corner of the frame unless using the back LCD, so I returned the GFX. No offence but bringing this camera out and do random average shots don't justify this camera. Because to really compare it to FF you should've approach it from different angle, and leave Your comfort zone of how You test all the gear. The priority has always been to achieve premium image quality. In practical applucations, the 50R image quality will by far exceed anything from Canon and Nikon. The Fujifilm GFX 50R is the last medium format by Fuji to utilize the same 51 MP CMOS sensor that we have previously seen on a number of cameras, including the Fuji GFX 50S, Hasselblad X1D 50C / X1D II 50C and Pentax 645Z. A humble, simple-to-use unit, it proves to be the perfect companion for the trip. Shooting landscapes on the Fujifilm GFX 50R with Nigel Danson, Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN and 65mm F2 DG DN Review. A lot of money. I'm enjoying my D850 right now. no they didnt. With its retail price of $4,500 at the time of the announcement, it was the cheapest medium format digital camera on the market. Unlike camera reviews, bike racing sport is regulated, and logical. This one is similar enough to stand out as equivalent. DJI's second-generation Pocket camera includes a long list of useful upgrades including a wider, faster lens, a larger sensor, more resolution, improved audio and an optional handle that significantly improves control and supports live streaming. Take a look at the below illustration to compares sizes of different sensors: Unlike APS-C and full-frame, medium format does not strictly define one particular sensor size. This is long before Instagram was ever a thing. I've read that argument before. Both the GFX 50R and the X-Pro3 are mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that are based on a medium format (GFX 50R) and an APS-C (X-Pro3) sensor. The Sci/Tech forum will be able to discuss this in much more detail than I can and I'd be interested to see their responses. And though the GFX 50R provides essentially the same image quality as its elder sibling, the handling and controls make for a very different shooting experience. Certainly, it's a niche, but it is a growing niche with differences that will become even more apparent with their 100MP release in June. The image becomes larger, but it contains the same amount of information as the original or even less, because some of it might have been destroyed in the process.IMHO, the only proper way of comparison is to process images the best you can and see which one turns out to have more information/quality. Take 6x9 film negative. Something like the customizable, modular concept camera recently shown would be a great addition to the line, I think. Don't know. This camera is just 'milking' and fooling customers.Yes its much underwhelming compared to Sony and Nikon offerings. However, for anyone coming from full frame high res. GFX 50R Camera Body Firmware Update Ver.2.00. Of course, this will only be relevant when printing large high quality prints. Secondly, you ignore the fact that in practice, the D850 allow 1 stop faster aperture (1 stop lower ISO or shutter speed) thanks to larger DoF on the D850. Iconic images that have lasted decades were done on film and sports imaging was around long before the advent of 20fps. Lastly, the dust / weather sealing is a huge added bonus, because that’s one less thing to worry about when shooting in various weather conditions. It's dynamic range great to demonstrate that FF has wide dynamic range. Is there any banding such banding on the Fujifilm's X-T3 ? Now with MF, there is: Fuji, Hasselblad, Leica, Pentax, Phase One. Here we've shot the Fujifilm GFX 50R directly alongside the Nikon Z7. They aren't lying when they say that once you go full frame, there's no going back. Plus AF precision and (customizable!) Pete, you may be thinking of the "photographers" here who bought " FF" cameras and loudly proclaimed that smaller sensors were inadequate. @mferencz Ahhhh, and see, your judgement of others is where your argument fails. I am considering an upgrade from X-T20 or go for D810 or 6D II. Once the 100MP sensors are released expect to see a big jump in file size for MF. https://www.dpreview.com/galleries/2418320136/photos/3864460/50r-capture-one-no-nr-copy. We're glad you asked. Ultimate quality comes from these files. Today, at its Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm revealed the details of its new Snapdragon 888 system on a chip (SoC) that, amongst performance and battery improvements, offers an array of impressive photographer features, should Android smartphone manufacturers choose to make the most of them. The point is that the review (and common sense) proves out that the IQ is about the same as ANY modern FX camera. And lack of a sizable grip made it especially difficult to handle heavier lenses, which is unfortunate. Download the dpreview samples of the two and view them full size. Also the X!D is already discontinued because it was a failure, what does that tell you. Not doubting your knowledge. Do they care? Result? On the flip side, the camera utilizes a rather slow 117-point contrast-detection autofocus, which makes it a challenging tool to use when photographing moving subjects. By the way, if the X-T3 was full-frame, it might be almost good enough. Fine art photographs taken in a “hurry” means nothing! The AF isn't crippled if the sensor hardware doesn't support PDAF, you're thinking of a different brand that puts APS-C AF in a FF body lol. So, I will rather wait for the release of that camera to see its performance than jump on the GFX ship right away. As a 50s owner and Canon user, I can tell you that you are dead wrong. People who never used this camera will never know. This is partially due to the rangefinder-like design that Fuji engineers were aiming at. Here are our top recommended G-mount lenses for Fujifilm GFX 50R medium format mirrorless camera. We've used the 45mm F2.8 lens on the Fujifilm and the Nikkor S 35mm F1.8 Z on the Nikon to give the same angle of view. I can buy a decent Mazda CX7 SUV for the price of a used 5-tonne truck. About € 8.000 with some accessories. Keep in mind that the following screen captures are about +5ev (appx for Capture One) which is LESS than DPReview's +6ev criteria of declaring the 50r is not ISO invariant. Or why are houses so expensive in San Francisco. Showed them to my friend and she was impressed at the quality of it. A difference may be significant to one person and insignificant to another. There is no big argument here, and people gnashing their teeth about it are self indulgent imo. The images are superb. Its designed for commercial work where ultimate image quality trumps everything else. I was honestly waiting for Your 50R test, as I'm right now trying to find my next camera [ D850 vs 50R ].
