Fuji GFX Field Test: The mirrorless medium-format camera takes on the landscapes of Maine
posted Thursday, April 6, 2017 at 4:00 PM EDT
When Fujifilm announced the Fuji GFX, landscape photographers were excited by the prospect of a mirrorless camera that could deliver medium-format image quality in a camera body no bigger than a full-frame DSLR camera. I have been working with the Fuji GFX and GF 32-64mm f/4 lens in Maine and putting it through its paces not only as an overall camera but also specifically as a tool for landscape photography. I also have had the chance to test out the tilt adapter for the electronic viewfinder and the optional battery grip.
The GFX 50S has proven to be a very capable camera that offers excellent image quality. However, no camera is perfect, and the GFX is no different, exposing a few shortcomings during real-world use. Its body is well-designed and functional, and the 50-megapixel medium-format sensor is sublime, but autofocus struggles in low light and the camera is not built for fast continuous shooting.
