Fuji GFX50S - Mirrorless Medium Format Camera from Fuji

 

Fuji Medium Format Camera

Fuji GFX50S is the name of recently announced mirrorless medium format camera of Fuji. Fuji cut down the mirror to make the camera size more compact and portable as well as to stop the 15% resolution loss caused by the Mirror. After evaluating all the possible consequences they have decided to make a Mirrorless Medium format camera.

Size Matters

The Fuji  GFX50S Sensor size is 1.7X larger than the current Fullftame cameras like Canon 1DX Mark II and Nikon D5 and approx 4times more than APS-C Sensor based Camera.

Fuji Made Sensor

As many websites (including us) were speculating that Fuji will use same sensor as of Pentax 645Z or Hasselblad X1D (both camera shares same Sony made 50 MP FF Sensor), but Fuji surprised us when they said the Sensor is completely new and made by Fuji engineers.

Fuji Medium Format Camera Rumor Update

Fuji-Medium-format-camera

According to recent interview (taken by dpreview team) senior executives from Fujifilm says “If you’re using a medium format camera and you definitely need that for the work you’re doing….. in future our goal is to satisfy everyone.”

A part of interview

Hasselblad just released the X1D – a relatively compact medium format camera. Do you think there is an opportunity for Fujfilm in this market in the future?

We’re keeping our eye on that market, and the full-frame market too, but we’re still focusing on our APS-C range.

Are you interested in attacking the full-frame market in the future?

We’re attacking this market with our X-series. And with X-Trans III, we think that when people actually see what our cameras can deliver, we think there’s a good chance that photographers will use our X-series in the future.

The question of sensor size depends on what the user wants, as an output. If you’re using a medium format camera and you definitely need that for the work you’re doing, maybe APS-C is too small. But for general use, I think our [current] APS-C sensor is comparable to full-frame image quality. I think we can satisfy most people. But in future our goal is to satisfy everyone.

Fuji is currently under Wait-and-Watch Mode, not only this interview if you will read the few lines what Takashi Ueno senior product planner for the X Series of digital  said on Jan, of 2016

“At the moment Fuji is not planning to launch a medium format camera, but we are conducting research and testing sensors in this area,” he continues. “We have a good history in the medium format market, and I think we would be successful again.”

That clearly indicates that Fuji does have basic ingredients ready make a medium format camera, but they looking towards the market response or sales report of  recently announced Hasselblad X1D camera.
