Pros:Files of amazing quality, ability to customize keys and wide wheels, side viewfinder
Cons:ergonomics, weights, and "department" EVF and LCD
Opinion:For the ergonomic speech I solved with the additional grip, the weights for those like me who have already used the SLR we are there.The biggest gaps are the speech " view " EVF and LCD should be improved substantially, having a vision in the style of Panasonic would be a desirable thing. I start from the side viewfinder, either you love it or you hate it, I belong to the first series. My first purchase of the Fuji brand, was the XPro-1, which I still have, that viewfinder is one of the reasons for choosing Fuji, to be able to "peek" without moving I really like it. The GFX was born and designed for some photographic genres, those genres in which the speed of AF is not required, those who buy this body must have this thing very clear otherwise they will be very disappointed. With a little practice you get to understand which is the most suitable option in choosing the AF to be used according to the type of shot, you can shoot at moving subjects (not sports or birdlife) but certainly not even remotely, I repeat "remotely" to be clear, comparable to the current AF of other brands. Clarified the speech AF, in its photographic fields is extraordinary, I come from the SLR world ( first Canon 5D III 1DMark) passed to Apsc ( Fuji XPro-1 and XT-4 ) and I must say that there are no comparisons . Detachment of the floors, dynamic range and sharpness (the park GFX lenses are all excellent, even in the price unfortunately) are first class, added then you have Fuji' colors, create excellent files. These my evaluations must be considered, in particular, in the post production, it is obvious that some results can be obtained at this stage with a decent work, (others not) but having a high quality raw raw file like that of GFX, for me who do not love the post very much, is a godsend. I don't print much, but when I pick up a printed photo of the GFX you can clearly understand what are the differences between the systems I had. Another element (in my opinion for others it could be a negative factor) is the question of depth of field, the size of the sensor offer the opportunity for a very high out of focus. With the 45 f2.8, which I love, (corresponds to a 36 mm on FF) and which is certainly not a portrait focal length, except in some circumstances, in the whole figures set, reminds me of my beloved 50 f 1.2 of Canon, but with stunning sharpness, plasticity and truly excellent tonal transitions. Conclusions: if you are looking for a body with reflex-style commands for photographic genres, let's call them from " reflection ", with Open mouth files this is your body, for other genres avoid it, it would be a total disappointment
Pros:High image quality, very good color reproduction.
Cons:Slow and inaccurate autofocus, with performance getting much worse as soon as the light intensity drops. Manual focus, which is actually a digital command, works when the device is on tripods and with static subjects, otherwise it is not a valid alternative to autofocus. In short, when autofocus is in trouble you are in trouble and you are in serious danger of not taking home the work. The synchro time of 1/125 places great limits on the use of outdoor and studio flashes with tungsten pilot lamps and open diaphragms. Professionally suitable only for real estate subjects, such as still life and landscape.
Opinion:As soon as I bought the device, I quickly realized that although it was able to produce high-quality images, it was not the ideal device for portraiture in general. With top-of-the-range professional flash monotorches, I used the GFX 50R in the studio to photograph my wife and daughter, both adults. The autofocus combined with the GF 110 lens is rather slow and inaccurate in portraiture of adults posing almost motionless. Unthinkable to use it professionally for the shooting of somewhat more lively subjects, such as children and young people. Speaking with the assistance of Fujifilm Italia they suggested that I do not set the autofocus square to the smallest size, and therefore more precise, but to choose a larger one, which helps a little in speed, but not in precision. They then explained to me that the ideal use of the machine is in the landscape and still life, with immovable subjects. NB: It would be useful if the suggestions relating to the size of the square of the autofucus were inserted directly into the instruction booklet accompanied by the device, which I read carefully from the first to the last page. It should be borne in mind that in GFX devices the rotation of the focus ring does not directly control the mechanical movement of the lens elements, but is a digital control, so much so that the targetses do not show a metric scale and require exaggerated rotations of the ring. Except in still life with a tripod device, in which case I normally prefer manual focus, this is not a great alternative to autofocus, even for those who were used to manually focusing medium format devices in photographs of events, such as weddings. With subjects in constant motion or when you don't have useful references to set up early focus, you're lost.
Pros:Outstanding image quality, both in raw and jpeg files. Very beautiful colors. Affordable price for the medium format. Much lighter than the generous dimensions suggest.
Cons:Acerbic product: no stabilizer, primordial and unresponsive autofocus. Poor ergonomics, very small buttons in proportion to the body. It remains flashy due to its size and unfortunately unlike the other Fuji is not even aesthetically satisfying. Battery undersized. High price of optics.
Opinion:For certain genres it can be great. However, it is certainly not a machine that can have the same generalist use as a full frame. First of all, the medium format if you want everything in focus (travel photos, landscapes, photos of architecture on the go) requires you to close the diaphragm a lot, with the consequence of having to shoot freehand often at very high iso. If there is not so much light, then it is always preferable to have a tripods, if you are looking for the highest image quality. The image quality, however, is very high, with a degree of detail and a sense of exceptional three-dimensionality.
Pros:I fully agree with what has already been put in favour of this camera, which, opens the doors to an audience of users not only professionals but also obsessive enthusiasts, perfect fots such as the undersigned, therefore of no small importance since a hasselblad the D 50 II in itself expensive to which must also be added the cost of optics not at all accessible , it seems to me that GFX 50 R should not envy anything to the hasselblad even the second slot for an SD for movies, contrary to what stated in features of this site. I also understand that in this area Fujifilm has given us a chance that I personally took advantage of and I highly recommend.
Cons:Aesthetic retro may or may not like, a greater grip was desirable, as even given the generous size a battery with more autonomy is desirable since having the stock of one or two original batteries results in an outlay of 175 x 2 "375", unless you use the compatible costs whose costs drop to less than a third but then do not know with what consequences.
Opinion:A great product, considering the tropicalization of the body, although more Super Full Frame than medium true format, the Sony home sensor, is adopted kanche by the most emblazoned houses turns out to be a real gem. The menu is intuitive and clear, as well as a conspicuous booklet in Italian, a language that is being extinguished, much appreciated. The body combined with the stabilized 45-100 f/4 optics allows a wide range of use. Purchased without trade-in you are at really attractive prices.
Pros:Dynamic range, resolution, detail, tropicalization, high ISO yield, colors, battery life, dioptric adjustment with block, possibility of crop, backlight seal with DR mode without flare and weight. The price considering that it is a superFF is to be taken into account.
Cons:Ugly aesthetics, un enveloping handle for the hand, UNusable AF-C for dynamic shots, no stabilizer on the sensor, no 4K video and connectivity
Opinion:Body made entirely of magnesium alloy and with excellent water and weather tightness. The sensor size of 43.8 x 32.9 millimeters against 36 x 24 millimeters of a full frame, allow to create images of the highest level both for "unimaginable" details and for colorimetric precision. It is clear that the large sensor manages to solve much more precisely than a full frame, micro four-thirds and so on, thus having to advise users who then want to take advantage of the photographs for large and similar prints. Its optimum use is study, landscape, fashion, street and portraiture in general (considering that the detachment of the planes, the progression in the nuance of colors or in the grayscale for b/n photos, three-dimensionality and bokeh are all in his favor)... Continuous shots are not its forte, so it is not a camera for sports and action (although it allows you to make some moving shots for subjects not particularly fast). The strengths are represented a) by the extended dynamic range with the possibility of recovering with certainty at least 4 stops in the shadows (and I am not kidding... you really have to work to take underexposed photos of 4 stops) and 2 stops in the high lights, b) from the microcontrasto and c) high resolution. An important point that I emphasize separately is represented by the high iso yield: a RAW well exposed to 3200 ISO is practically "almost free" of noise and at 6400 ISO you are amazed how excellent it really is... the battery is the last positive aspect of the camera: it guarantees 70 minutes of continuous recording, as well as over 400 shots without particular difficulties or the need for a wall socket. Finally, the menus and their organization for those already accustomed to using the Fuji system are "easy" and intuitive: they are organized well in the chapters and the machine can be easily "tailor-made" cut to their needs... Negative points are represented by grip and aesthetics: the GFX 50R is a parallelepiped (if I am allowed a rounded XE-3, or for the not very young between the 70s and 90s the Fuji GW690 III), it is not easy to handle since the handle is still too small. The continuous shooting is very slow, even if the "noise" of the small burst is not so bad ...; LCD screen not adjustable or tiltable at 180°, but touchscreen... a lack to keep in mind concerns the absence of the image stabilizer on the sensor; having been born for use also on the move and not only in the studio, it is clear that the user is forced to buy a lens with integrated stabilizer, otherwise it will take the right attention to make good freehand shots. It is a means that I recommend for landscape, still life photography, portraiture and studio photography!
