Fujifilm GFX 50R

"The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a powerful medium format mirrorless camera that costs much less than other full-frame mirrorless cameras, but offers similar or better performance. The larger sensor results in highly detailed and sharp images even in low light. This is the best mirrorless camera to feature a compact design as well as rugged features."

There are several reasons why I shouldn’t like the Fuji GFX 50R. It’s big, heavy and expensive for a start. I’m also not usually a fan of rangefinder-style cameras. But I love the 50R.

The GFX 50R has somewhat ponderous autofocus and a weak burst mode, but it was never designed for fast action and you only have to take a look at its raw files for the first time to instantly forget all its weaknesses. The GFX 50R was designed for superb medium format image quality at a price we haven’t seen before and in a portable, resilient camera, and it does that quite superbly.
