My May became the best month of 2017 when I received an exciting package from Fujifilm with their newest addition to the medium format game recently released GFX 50S. It combines outstanding resolution of 51.4 megapixels with exceptional tones, advanced color reproduction, weather sealing and high-performance lenses. I knew I would be able to carry this camera anywhere because it’s so light. This was so freeing. Never before were you able to have so much quality in such a compact body. I decided to take it for a spin to one of the most colorful and iconic destination in all of NY, Coney Island. Coney Island is a Brooklyn must-see that is the perfect juxtaposition of old and new. This is the place that would play to the camera’s strengths so I could finally truly capture the Coney Island character. If you ever shot with a full frame DSLRs before, the size of GFX will be very familiar to your hands. The only difference is a medium format.
One more reason why I love Fujifilm X Series is the Film Simulation. My favorite being classic chrome. This feature is also available on GFX. The autofocus is fast enough even for you street photography lovers. Don’t take my word for it, try it immediately. Seriously. Once you try the GFX; you will also understand why GFX is the game changer for medium format cameras market.
