Fujifilm GFX 50S II Assessment



Introduction

The GFX 50S II is the fifth medium-format mirrorless digital camera that Fujifilm have launched in the previous couple of years, and is by far essentially the most inexpensive, making medium-format out there to a a lot wider viewers.

As its identify suggests, it has a 50 megapixel picture sensor which bodily measures 43.8×32.9mm, a lot bigger than the 36x24mm sensor present in a 35mm full-frame digital camera – roughly 1.7x bigger actually.

The Fuji 50S II really makes use of precisely the identical sensor because the older 50 megapixel 50S and 50R fashions, regardless of costing considerably lower than each at launch.

This can be a again illuminated CMOS sensor with the identical contrast-detect sort autofocus system because the 50S and 50R, with no phase-detection AF sensors embedded within the sensor as on the 100 megapixel GFX 100 and 100S cameras.

Model new to the Mark II version is “Distinction Fast AF”, an improved model of the contrast-based autofocus system that may focus in 0.272sec with the 35-70mm lens, simply 0.1sec slower than the GFX 100S with the identical lens and its extra superior PDAF system.

The native ISO vary runs from ISO 100 to ISO 12,800, which is expandable to 50-102,400.

The GFX50S II does use the newest, strongest X-Processor 4 picture processor, although, a function that’s shared with the 100 megapixel fashions, which permits the brand new model to supply a whopping 79 upgraded features when in comparison with the unique 50S mannequin.

Identical to the GFX 100 and 100S, the 50S II options in-body picture stabilization (IBIS), however this time the five-axis picture stabilisation system supplies an excellent higher compensation ranking of as much as 6.5 stops.

The Fuji 50S II provides 1080p video recording with a body charge of 30fps, a limitation of the sensor that it makes use of, moderately than the 4K 30p video recording discovered on the GFX 100/S.

The 50S’s detachable viewfinder and battery grip have each been sacrificed within the curiosity of creating the Mark II model lighter, smaller and crucially cheaper (because it’s less complicated to fabricate).

Different key specs embody a weather-resistant magnesium alloy physique, 3.69M-dot OLED digital viewfinder with 100% protection and a magnification of 0.77x, 2.36 million dot tilting 3.2-inch LCD show, Face and Eye Detection AF, 3fps steady capturing speeds, and twin UHS-II SD reminiscence card slots.

The 50S II additionally provides shutter speeds from 60 minutes to 1/4000th sec utilizing the mechanical focal aircraft shutter or as much as 1/16000 sec through the digital shutter, interval capturing and a number of publicity modes, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB-C port.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S II is accessible now priced at £3499 / $3999 physique solely or £3999 / $4499 with the brand new GF 35-70mm package lens, within the UK and USA respectively, placing in on a par with the likes of the Canon EOS R5 and Sony Alpha A7R IV 35mm full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Ease of Use




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

Externally the brand new GFX 50S II is equivalent to final 12 months’s GFX 100S digital camera, with the identical magnesium alloy, weather-resistant physique, the identical PASM management dial and high LCD panel, and the identical rear LCD display, digital viewfinder and AF joystick on the rear.

The GFX 50S II can also be taking over the 35mm full-frame market by being equally sized to some DSLR and mirrorless fashions, regardless of having a bigger, medium format sensor – and have we already talked about that it’s totally equally priced to flagship full-frame fashions from Canon, Sony, Nikon and Panasonic, even with a lens included?

Regardless of having a medium format sensor, it is clear that Fujifilm believes the GFX 50S II principal rivals are 35mm sensor cameras, not the “conventional” medium-format market that primarily serves studio photographers.

With this new mannequin, Fujifilm have aggressively diminished the scale and the worth of the GFX 50S II to tackle the likes of the Sony Alpha A7R IV, Canon EOS R5, Nikon Z7 II and Panasonic Lumix S1R, to not point out DSLRs just like the Canon EOS 5D IV and Nikon D850.

Fujifilm does not have a 35mm digital camera vary – as an alternative it has the extremely popular APS-C X-series and the comparatively new GFX medium-format sequence.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

So it is attacking the favored full-frame market from two angles – smaller, lighter and cheaper cameras just like the X-T4, and now a medium-format digital camera that’s comparable in dimension, weight and even value to the newest flagship 35mm fashions.

We have not even talked about the GFX 50S II’ medium format rivals, which excluding the now ageing Pentax 645Z are invariably bigger and far, way more costly than this digital camera.

As ever with cameras, there is no one mannequin that does all of it, although, so do not count on the GFX 50S II to rival smaller-sensor cameras for issues like burst capturing speeds, video and auto-focus efficiency.

It’s nonetheless very a lot a medium-format digital camera in theses areas, which is particularly true with the 50S II as a result of it continues to make use of the now ageing 50 megapixel sensor that made its debut in 2017’s 50S digital camera.

The Fuji 50S II weighs 900g and measures 150×104.2×87.2mm, making it barely greater and heavier than the unique 50S, which weighed in at 740g and measured 148x94x91mm, though the figures for the GFX 50S are with out the detachable EVF being fitted, and crucially it does not have IBIS both, in contrast to the 50S II.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

Identical to the GFX 100S, Fujifilm aren’t releasing an non-obligatory battery grip for the GFX 50S II – it does not even have {the electrical} contacts on the underside of the digital camera physique – so there will likely be no Third-party choices out there both.

As an alternative there’s a steel hand grip accent referred to as the MHG-GFXS that enhances the in-hand really feel of the digital camera, considerably sarcastically by making it greater.

So when you’re a fan of both becoming an non-obligatory battery grip to your digital camera for higher battery life and improved ergonomics when capturing in portrait mode, sadly the GFX 50S II will not meet your wants, and you will want to think about the older 50S or 50R fashions as an alternative.

So Fuji’s engineers have included an in-body 5-axis stabilisation unit for the primary time in a 50 megapixel mannequin, one which’s really much more efficient than the unit contained in the GFX 100S.

The GFX 100 provides 5.5 stops of compensation, the GFX 100S provides 6 stops of compensation, and the GFX 50S II provides a class-leading 6.5 stops of compensation, because of a barely redesigned IBIS unit.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

That is the third GFX and third ever medium format digital camera to function in-body picture stabilization. The Fuji GFX 50S II makes use of a well-known 5-axis system which supplies as much as 6.5 stops of picture stabilization (when utilizing the GF 63mm F2.8 R WR lens).

The primary two 50 megapixel GFX cameras did not have IBIS built-in, as an alternative counting on the lens to supply it, which not all GFX lenses do. With the GFX 50S II, any lens that you simply connect to it is going to mechanically profit from as much as 6.5 stops of compensation. Moreover, the identical system is used to assist suppress shutter shock, which given the decision on supply is a really welcome profit.

Pixel Shift is a particular Multi-Shot perform that makes use of the IBIS unit to allow the GFX 50S II to create 205 megapixel photographs. The digital camera’s IBIS unit is used to shift the picture sensor by as much as a pixel in numerous instructions throughout a sequence of 16 photographs, which may then be mechanically mix right into a single picture utilizing Fuji’s Pixel Shift Combiner software program.

Fuji additionally redesigned the focal aircraft shutter unit to be able to scale back the scale of the 50S II, but it surely nonetheless provides the identical quickest shutter pace of 1/4000th second and the longest publicity time of 60 minutes. There’s additionally an digital shutter which supplies an excellent sooner shutter pace of as much as 1/16000 sec, which is helpful for capturing in shiny circumstances at wide-open apertures, for instance.

The third main design determination that has helped to make the GFX 50S II so small, along with the brand new IBIS and shutter models, is the adoption of a smaller battery.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The Fujifilm GFX 50S II makes use of precisely the identical NP-W235 battery because the X-T4 APS-C sensor digital camera and the GFX 100S, moderately than the bodily bigger TP-125 battery utilized by the GFX 100 and the GFX 50S, and it is included into the underside of the handgrip, once more permitting the designers to make the 50S II smaller.

The NP-W235 provides a CIPA-rated battery lifetime of as much as 455 photographs on a single cost in regular mode, versus 400 photographs for the TP-125, so it really out-performs the larger battery.

The Fuji GFX 50S II is a really well-built digital camera, as you’d in all probability count on for £3.5K, with completely no flex or motion in its chassis because of a die-cast magnesium alloy physique and machined management dials.

It is also dust-resistant, waterproof and freeze-resistant right down to -10°C, making this a medium format digital camera that can be utilized outdoors in addition to indoors, additional growing its versatility.

When it comes to its ergonomics and management format, the 50S II is the most effective realised GFX mannequin but, and the one which we have most loved utilizing, primarily as a result of it handles identical to a premium full-frame DSLR or mirrorless digital camera.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The entrance of the Fujifilm GFX 50S II is adorned with the white Fujifilm brand positioned above the lens. To the left of the lens mount, if viewing the digital camera front-on, is a small black button that may be customised, which by default accesses the Efficiency Increase features. On the bottom-left of the lens is a round button for releasing the lens.

Because of the adoption of the NP-W235 battery and its placement, the 50S II has a really massive grip that I might comfortably match even my pinky finger round while working the shutter button together with your forefinger and gripping the again of the digital camera together with your thumb, which makes it exceptionally straightforward to carry for prolonged quantities of time. Even quick durations of one-handed use are potential – what number of medium format cameras are you able to say that about?

Identical to they just lately did with the X-S10 APS-C digital camera, Fujifilm have made the very-unlike-Fuji determination to considerably simplify the design of the GFX 50S II by not together with the standard shutter pace and ISO pace dials that adorn most of its cameras.

As an alternative, there is a conventional capturing mode dial on the left, full with a minimum of 6 (!) Customized mode settings and the standard PASM modes, and a big, monochrome top-panel LCD display on the correct, a mixture that is identical to the one on the GFX 100S.

In entrance of the capturing mode dial is the model new capturing mode swap, which toggles between Film and Nonetheless. This can be a welcome simplification of the best way by which you selected these modes on earlier GFX cameras, though you do lose top-panel entry to the Drive modes, which at the moment are as an alternative accessed by the brand new Drive button on the rear of the digital camera.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The 1.8″ top-panel LCD display cleverly replaces the standard bodily ISO and Shutter pace dials by displaying three “digital” controls as an alternative, with ISO on the left, shutter pace on the correct and publicity compensation on the underside.

Relying upon which capturing mode you are in, as you employ the entrance and rear management dials to vary these settings, the digital show is up to date in real-time.

It may also be toggled utilizing the small unmarked button to the bottom-right of the highest LCD display to alternatively show both a histogram or the Fuji GFX 50S II’s present key settings, together with the shutter pace, aperture, publicity compensation, sensitivity, capturing mode, white steadiness and movie simulation mode.

It isn’t fairly as handy as having precise dials, however is a intelligent concept nonetheless, particularly as when set to the important thing settings mode, the LCD display stays on when the digital camera is turned off, which acts as a fast reminder of your final used settings even earlier than you flip the digital camera again on.

There’s additionally no helpful publicity compensation dial, nonetheless, as an alternative changed by a tiny devoted button on high of the digital camera subsequent to the shutter button that is moderately awkwardly used along side the rear management dial.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

Finishing the highest of the digital camera is a small button for illuminating the highest LCD panel, an unmarked, re-configurable Perform button that by default toggles Face Detection on and off, and an On/Off swap that surrounds the shutter launch button – this is not threaded for a standard shutter launch cable, although, as on some X-series cameras.

The Fujifilm GFX 50R is supplied with a 43.8×32.9mm CMOS sensor with a decision of 51.4 megapixels and no optical low cross filter that delivers 8256×6192 pixel nonetheless photographs.

The sensor is basically the identical because the one discovered within the Fujifilm GFX 50S, 50R and Hasselblad X1D cameras.

This chip has an imaging space that is 1.7x higher than that of a 35mm “full-frame” sensor, and over 3.7 instances bigger than the APS-C sized sensors utilized in Fujifilm’s X-series cameras.

Not like these cameras, although, the Fujifilm GFX 50R has a standard Bayer color filter array in entrance of the sensor. The pixel rely is not actually greater than that of the highest-resolution 35mm full-frame DSLRs – the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R – however the pixel pitch is bigger, promising a wider dynamic vary and a greater signal-to-noise ratio.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The Fujifilm GFX 50S II has the identical contrast-detect sort autofocus system as the unique 50S, with no phase-detection AF sensors embedded within the sensor as on the GFX 100/100S cameras, so if auto-focus pace is paramount then one of many GFX 100 fashions is the best choice.

Having mentioned that, Fujifilm have added a brand new Fast AF choice to the Mark II 50S, which hurries up the contrast-based focusing and likewise makes it extra correct by utilizing the brand new IBIS unit to regulate sensor movement blur.

Additionally, the newest X-Processor 4 contained in the 50SII advantages from having the newest algorithm that improves the AF’s refresh charge, leading to extra correct autofocus in Face / Eye Detection in comparison with the earlier mannequin.

Relying on the lighting circumstances, the GFX 50S II is quicker than the unique 50S mannequin however nonetheless a bit of on the sluggish facet to auto-focus, taking about 1/3 second to lock onto the topic and likewise liable to searching in low-light environments.

The AF level may be set to one among six totally different sizes through the rear management dial to realize extra exact focusing, and you may as well merely faucet on the touchscreen to set the AF level. If you would like much more management, you may choose the 425 factors possibility which splits the identical space of the body right into a 17×25 grid of smaller AF factors.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The Fuji GFX 50S II additionally provides Zone and Extensive/Monitoring modes which utilise the bigger 425-point space to seize shifting topics.

In Zone mode, you may choose a 3×3, 5×5 or 7×7 zone out of the 425-point AF space. Throughout AF-C focus, the digital camera regularly tracks the topic, positioning it on the centre of the zone.

The Extensive/Monitoring mode combines the Extensive mode (throughout AF-S), by which the GFX 50S II mechanically identifies and tracks the world in focus throughout the 425 level AF space, and the predictive Monitoring mode (throughout AF-C), which makes use of your complete 425-point space to proceed monitoring the topic. This function permits steady specializing in a topic that’s shifting up and down, left and proper or in direction of and away from the digital camera.

Guide focus can also be offered, and excellent it’s too. As you’d count on, the handbook focus rings on all of the GFX lenses have a stunning really feel, and two totally different focusing aids are offered – auto magnification and focus peaking. At the side of the high-resolution digital viewfinder, we discovered it straightforward to precisely decide important sharpness.

The GFX 50S II provides a steady capturing charge of 3fps, the identical charge because the 50S, however the buffer depth is far higher – for limitless JPEGs or 31 compressed Uncooked information when you use a UHS-II SDXC card and the digital shutter, making it one of many sooner medium format cameras in the marketplace. For those who want to make use of the mechanical shutter, the speed drops to 2.2fps for limitless JPEGs or compressed Raws.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The GFX 50S II provides precisely the identical primary video mode because the 50S and 50R, supporting both Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) or 720p recording at 29.97, 25, 24, and 23.98 fps within the H.264 compressed MP4 format. There is not any 4K recording on this digital camera – you will have to step as much as the 100 megapixel GFX 100/100S fashions for that function.

The Mark II does supply an improved most recording time of two hours, although, versus half-hour on the unique mannequin.

There are each 3.5mm Mic and three.5mm Headphone ports on the left-hand flank of the digital camera when considered from the rear, with USB-C, HDMI and an X-Sync flash socket under them.

The GFX 50S II may be powered and charged through the USB-C connection, which is helpful when you’re out and about and have a suitable powerbank to plug the digital camera into.

Two reminiscence card slots are positioned on the right-hand flank of the digital camera when considered from the rear. The GFX 50S II provides compatibility with Extremely Excessive Pace UHS-II SDXC reminiscence playing cards, which has the primary profit of accelerating the info writing pace in steady mode to about twice that of a standard UHS-1 card.

Additionally positioned on the correct of the digital camera physique is the Distant socket, hidden beneath it is personal flap.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The Fuji GFX 50S II options each built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The latter possibility creates a continuing, low-power connection between the digital camera and a smartphone/pill to switch photographs and video utilizing the Fujifilm Digital camera Distant smartphone app, whereas the previous lets you remotely management the GFX 50S II through a 2.4Ghz wi-fi connection utilizing a smartphone or pill and the Fujifilm app, and switch photographs and video from one machine to the opposite.

With its focal-plane mechanical shutter, the Fujifilm GFX 50S II has a high shutter-speed restrict of 1/4000th second in all capturing modes. This lets you choose a sooner aperture even in shiny circumstances or when capturing with flash in the course of the day, though there is no built-in ND filter.

The GFX 50S II additionally has an digital shutter along with the mechanical one, which supplies a a lot sooner high shutter pace of 1/16,000th second. This lets you proceed capturing wide-open with quick aperture lenses within the brightest of circumstances with out having to resort to becoming a glass ND filter or utilizing exterior flash and lights.

There are some vital caveats with the digital shutter – the ISO vary is restricted to 100-12800 and you’ll’t use an exterior flashgun, however general it is an incredible function that makes the GFX 50S II extra versatile.

Moderately than a standard optical viewfinder, the Fuji GFX 50S II employs the identical 3.69M-dot OLED digital viewfinder that the GFX 100S makes use of, which is 0.5 inch in dimension with 100% scene protection and 0.77x magnification.




Fujifilm GFX 50S II

Not like the unique GFX 50, this digital viewfinder is fastened in place and never detachable. The EVF can really be fully faraway from the primary digital camera physique on the 50S mannequin, whereas it is fastened in place on the brand new GFX 50S II. It provides the identical 3.69M-dot decision however has higher 0.85x magnification.

The non-obligatory EVF-TL1 tilt and swivel adapter may also be used with the 50S’ viewfinder to vary the angle of the viewfinder to a most angle of 90° when capturing horizontal landscapes and ±45° when capturing within the portrait place.

So the viewfinder on the 50S is extra versatile and higher-resolution than the one on the newer mannequin, at the price of nice complexity and an accompanying improve in value.

The dimensions of the rear LCD display is 3.2-inches and the decision is a formidable 2.36m-dots, precisely the identical because the display on the GFX 50S and 100/S. It may also be usefully tilted up and down by about 90 levels when in panorama mode and upward when capturing in portrait mode through a easy press of a button on the facet.

The Fujifilm GFX 50S II has an intuitive touchscreen interface, permitting you to both transfer the AF level or concurrently transfer the AF level and concentrate on the topic.

On the right-hand facet of the display is a small icon which when you press it lets you select between utilizing the display to set the AF level, or to have it focus as properly. For those who want, you may flip off this performance altogether, however it’s faster than utilizing the joystick to set the AF level.

One disadvantage to leaving the touchscreen AF on is that we saved inadvertently shifting the AF level when altering lenses or utilizing the EVF. In picture playback, you may merely drag left and proper to undergo the sequence of photographs and pinch/double-tap to zoom out and in, though you continue to cannot use the primary menu system through the touchscreen.

Not like the GFX 100 with its moderately unfamiliar design, the rear panel of the 50S II will really feel extra welcoming to anybody who has ever dealt with a Fujifilm X-series digital camera earlier than.

There’s the aforementioned Drive button and a Delete button positioned to the left of the EVF and an AF Mode dial (S/C/M) on the correct, with a small AF On button for back-button focusing and the rear management dial alongside that.

Conclusion

When the 100 megapixel GFX 100S was launched in 2019, we mentioned that medium-format images had by no means been fairly so compact, moveable, easy-to-use or versatile.

That assertion is simply as true with the introduction of the 50S II, with one vital caveat – you now want so as to add “inexpensive” to that checklist of superlatives.

By cunningly bringing collectively the confirmed 50 megapixel sensor from the 50S/R fashions with the identical physique and design because the 100S, Fujifilm have managed to create a comparatively tiny medium-format digital camera that prices the identical as a high-end 35mm full-frame mannequin, one thing that is by no means been achieved earlier than.

The brand new GFX 50S II is equally sized to some 35mm DSLR and mirrorless flagships from different manufacturers, but it nonetheless squeezes in a 1.7x bigger sensor and an IBIS unit into its comparatively svelte dimensions.
