In our first Fuji GFX 50S Field Test, we looked at the GFX 50S camera body, sensor, performance, autofocus and how it handled as a landscape camera. However, there is a lot more to test with the Fuji GFX, including video and how the camera handles portraiture, which will surely be a popular use case for the GFX 50S. In our Fuji GFX 50S Field Test Part II, we take a closer look at Fuji’s Film Simulations on the GFX 50S, including their latest addition, Acros. We also put it through its paces in a couple of outdoor portrait sessions, including with the GF 63mm f/2.8 lens, as well as test the GFX 50S as a video camera.

Shooting portraits with the GFX stressed the camera in ways that landscape photography did not, including continuous autofocus performance. While C-AF was not always up to the task, the GFX was capable of excellent sharpness and colors. Even in low light, the GFX produced rich, versatile image files. To learn more about that lens’s performance, read our Fuji GFX Field Test Part II.
