They are finding out the hard way it has some major issues.

First look at the Fujifilm GFX 50S – could this photo behemoth get RAW video like Hasselblad H6D-100C?

Fujifilm GFX 50S review

Comment on the forum

It’s flown under the radar for video but the Sony 100 megapixel CMOS sensor is doing amazing things over in the Hasselblad camp – 4K RAW to be exact. You can see a great video of that below but first – I present to you the humble Fujifilm GFX 50S.

If I told you Fujifilm had a full frame mirrorless camera system to compete with the Sony A7R III, a lot of people would sit up and notice. However the GFX 50S is a medium format camera, and these don’t really register on the same radar screen as others.

Fuji X Pro 2 review – a Leica killer. Also a surprisingly capable Super 35mm cinema machine?

Leica are really going to after pro video shooters with the SL.

Meanwhile RED are persuading medium format photographers to use a 6K Dragon or Weapon.

A gap in the space/time continuum captain?!

Step forward the next specialised tool to turn camera-chameleon: the Fuji X Pro2.

Fuji X Pro 2 video quality a huge step up – hands on with the final hardware, pre-production firmware

I am really pleased to say the video quality of the X Pro 2 is seriously impressive. It’s not 4K but it’s enormously satisfying, sharp and detailed.

What’s great is that now we can finally shoot moving images with Fuji’s superb film-like colour science, without having to worry about image quality.
