Which Fujifilm Medium Format Camera Is Right for You?

Fujifilm has made medium format remarkably affordable compared to the past, bringing it within the realm of full frame prices and making it a viable alternative for many photographers. If you are interested in getting into the system, both the GFX 50S and GFX 50S II are fantastic options at different price levels, and this great video will help you choose which is right for you. 

Coming to you from Benj Haisch, this awesome video will help you choose between the Fujifilm GFX 50S and GFX 50S II medium format mirrorless cameras. At $4,000, the GFX 50S II is already impressively affordable for a modern medium format mirrorless camera. However, with its arrival, you can now get the original model for around $2,800 to $3,000 on the used market, making it even more affordable. And while the second version brings with it a variety of improvements, such as better autofocus, if image quality is what you are concerned about, it is important to remember that both the first and second version of the camera have the same sensor, so you can save about $1,000 by going used with the original model. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Haisch.

Waiting for an upsized X100V with 50mp MF sensor, IBIS, PDAF and flash sync speed at least 1/250 (dreams are free). 😂

'you just dont wanna use it for video'. Interesting, given that Philip Bloom has shown how magnificent the GFX series can be when used for video. To me, a great disappointment of the two 50's is that they dont offer 4k video. I dont need a 100 MP sensor, but will probably jump at the GFX 100S so that I can shoot 4k when I need to. I will keep the BMPCC 4k for dedicated video work, but if I am travelling, safari, etc, would love to have 4k available.

Is the dynamic range that much better than say, Nikons Z7 or Z7II or any of Canons FF high MP cameras?
