We've just published our third and final Field Test for the medium format mirrorless Fujifilm GFX 50S camera. In this third hands-on report, we test out the GFX 50S’ new Color Chrome Effect, investigate its image sensor further, test remote shooting capabilities and take one last look at the camera system as a whole.

The new Color Chrome Effect is very interesting. It took a lot of engineering on Fujifilm’s part, and it is not something easily replicated with manual image processing. It is well-suited for high-contrast scenes in which you don’t want colors to become oversaturated. In the third Field Test, we also look at the image sensor and how RAW files handle changes in exposure during post-processing. We also discuss the implications of working with the GFX 50S on a photo editing workflow; the large files proved very demanding.

Fujinon GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR lens at 61mm (48mm equiv.), f/4.0, 1/7s, ISO 800. This image has been modified.
