Video: Fujifilm GFX 50S Review

In the world of photography, what’s generally understood is that the larger the film format is, the more detail your image has. This is one of the advantages of shooting in a medium or large format unlike when using 35mm which is common even in full-frame cameras today.

Fujifilm harnessed that edge by introducing its GFX 50S digital medium format system. At $6,500 for body-only, this professional mirrorless shooter actually belongs to the ‘affordable’ bunch. Join us as we find out if this camera is fit for someone who’s more than just a hobbyist.
