The Fujifilm GFX 50R was rumored for a while, and ahead of Photokina 2018, it was finally officially announced. Now that we know the specs, he price and the availability of the camera, a few hands-on looks have arrived as well to show us what the camera is like in action. Here’s the summary of the hands-on videos we’ve found so far.
After plenty of rumors about the affordable and compact Fujifilm GFX 50R and the 100MP GFX 100S, now it’s official: Fujifilm has launched the GFX 50R for preorders and announced the development of the GFX 100S. The GFX 50R retails for $4,500, which isn’t exactly a pocket change, but it’s still $1,350 cheaper than the Fujifilm GFX 50S.
Fujifilm GFX 50R is the upcoming rumored “affordable” medium format camera. It’s expected to be officially announced on 25 September, but here’s a little something ahead of the event. Apparently accurate sketches of the camera have leaked, so you can take a peek at how it might look a few days before the expected announcement.
It’s being reported by Fuji Rumors that the Fuji press event coming before Photokina opens up will be to announce a new medium format camera. The GFX 50R has been rumoured for a while now, but it seems that it’s finally coming. And it’s coming on September 25th – not the 23rd as many have been reporting.
Today, Hasselblad released new sample photos taken with their latest medium format camera H6D-400c MS. And their test subject? A Ross HK-7 which is the first camera they ever produced. It’s a wonderful testament to how much the company has achieved in photography technology in the last 77 years.[Read More…]
Hasselblad have just announced the new H6D-400c. A 400MP monster of a camera, but there’s a catch. All is not quite as it initially appears. Yes, it can produce 400MP images, but it’s not a 400MP sensor. It’s still a 100MP sensor, but it uses pixel shifting, taking multiple shots to form a single higher resolution image. Six shots this case.
As well as this, the H6D-400c offers a four-shot multishot mode which allows the camera to record full red, green and blue values from every pixel. A very cool technique that should (theoretically) yield Foveon-like quality from a Bayer sensor.
