Fujifilm has just unveiled its new 51.4-megapixel mirrorless camera, the GFX 50S, during Photokina 2016.
Compared to conventional medium-format digital SLR cameras, the GFX is lighter weight, achieving a far more compact form factor. With regards to functionality, the camera follows in the footsteps of the X Series by featuring physical buttons and dials, and is designed with an ergonomic grip, shaped carefully and optimized for the camera body and lenses.
The GFX 50S also becomes Fujifilm’s first model to use a detachable electronic viewfinder, which you can remove when using an external monitor or wanting to make the system even lighter. Other optional accessories that will be released include the Vertical Battery Grip, which enhances functionality when shooting in the portrait orientation. The camera also supports tethered shooting, which has become an essential part of the professional photographers’ workflow, and will be compatible with various RAW conversion application software.
Fujifilm is expected to release the GFX 50S in early 2017.
