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

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.

Sony A7R – full frame T0.95 with the SLR Magic HyperPrime (and special guest, Leica Noctilux 50mm F0.95)

EOSHD is launching a Shooter’s Guide for lenses on the Sony A7R – pre-order it here to get $10 off the launch price

Currently the best (read expensive) full frame lenses for low light are the Zeiss Otus 55mm F1.4 and the Leica M Noctilux 50mm F0.95.

How does the SLR Magic HyperPrime 50mm T0.95 rate as an alternative?

The Shires – SLR Magic CINE 50mm T0.95 first look – the Leica Noctilux for cinematographers?

The Leica M Noctilux which costs $11,000 is a full frame F0.95 photographic lens. The SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE T0.95 is a full frame F0.92 lens designed for cinematographers with Leica M mount which retails for $3,000 – a third of the Noctilux.

It is quite a different lens to the Voigltander Nokton 25mm F0.95 for Micro Four Thirds. It covers a full frame sensor and APS-C mirrorless cameras like the Sony FS100 and NEX 7 whilst the Nokton vignettes on anything larger than Micro Four Thirds. I shot the above film on the Panasonic GH2 with Iscorama 36 anamorphic attached to the SLR Magic CINE but I am also using it on my NEX 7 and Fuji X Pro 1.
