Mr. Haruki’s Fujifilm GFX 50S Impressions

DC.Watch has an editorial by Mr. Haruki about the Fujifilm GFX 50S that is a little difficult to read via google translate, but I pulled out a few quotes to share.

“Since GFX 50S is compact, it is not conscious of being a middle-sized camera”

“It is smaller than I imagined at all and it is almost the same size as the existing 35 mm full size digital SLR camera. Rather, on a weight basis, GFX is surprisingly slightly lighter.”

“Both launch and AF seems to be responsive with agile movement.”

“You can use it in a sense close to 35 mm in any field such as landscape, fashion, commodity, snap, architecture, portrait.”

His impressions as a medium format shooter are interesting, but it isn’t clear why he was unable to give any impressions about the image quality. This could be an issue with google translate. There is also a great comparison shot (seen above) of the Fujifilm X-T2 and GFX 50s along with the Fujifilm H mount adapter on camera (below).

    Well, the name of mr haruki is indeed sato, haruki is the prename.
    the origin of this missunderstanding ist the japanese form haruki san, where the prename can be used in a somewhat formal way.
