In additional GFX 50R was introduced by Fujifilm in September 2018. It belongs to the Mirrorless Cameras category.
Fujifilm is well-known and shouldn’t require further introduction, please see our manufacturer’s page for more digital cameras by Fujifilm.
The GFX 50R has a Medium format CMOS sensor with size of 44 x 33 mm² (1.72″ x 1.30″).

The 1-Euro coin has a diameter of 23.25mm.
The GFX 50R’s image sensor has an effective resolution of around 51 megapixel. The resolution is far above average and will easily be sufficient for years to come. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed in A2 size or larger, even if unwanted parts of the photo have to be cropped.
The Fujifilm supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Fujifilm’s RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.
The GFX 50R features a mechanism for automatic sensor cleaning.
|Sensor area||43.80 x 32.90mm²

|Resolution (physical)||51.40 megapixel|
|Resolution (effective)||51.40 megapixel|
|Pixel size||28.10 µm²|
The GFX 50R uses an electronic viewfinder with a resolution of 3.69 megapixel, an excellent value for a viewfinder like this which makes the camera a joy to use.
The magnifcation is c. 0.77x, an excellent value for an electronic viewfinder.
The GFX 50R’s shutter speed varies from 1/4000s to 4s.
|Max. shutter speed||1/4000s|
|Min. shutter speed||4s|
The GFX 50R’s sensitivity is from 100 ISO and 12800 ISO.
Also, Fujifilm’s sensitivity can be boosted to 102400. Therefore, ISO boosting will lead to growth noise.
|Min. sensitivity||100 ISO|
|Max. sensitivity||12800 ISO|
The GFX 50R supports all general exposure modes.
The Fujifilm allows spot exposure for the difficult occasion.
|Auto Focus Properties|
The GFX 50R’s auto focus processor uses 117 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. when panning the camera).
Manual focus is also possible with the Fujifilm, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
The GFX 50R doesn’t feature a built-in flash. That is not unsusual in this camera category.
A flash or a trigger for remote flashes can be attached to the Fujifilm’s hotshoe.
The GFX 50R features a monitor with a diagonal of 81.00mm (3.2 in.) and a resolution of c. 2.36 megapixel. A resonable value that will make it easy to evaluate images directly in-camera.
The camera’s display is articulated, a plus for selfies and other challenging situations.
The GFX 50R’s monitor can work as a touch screen, just like a smartphone. That can be very useful, for example to pick AF points, but keep in mind that touch screens usually don’t work when wearing gloves.
