Japanese camera manufacturer, Fujifilm has unveiled the GFX50s in India after releasing their flagship camera in January last year. The mirrorless camera that’s powered by an X-Processor Pro imaging unit and a 51.4-megapixel sensor will be available for purchase for an asking price of Rs 5,11,999.
The 51.4MP sensor which Fujifilm is proud to make on its own allows the GFX50s to adapt to any aspect ratio and measures in at 43.8×32.9mm. Not only is the sensor larger than any full-frame camera, it’s designed in such a way as to allow higher levels of sharpness, details and wider dynamic range when gathering light from the surroundings. In addition to that, there’s a new Colour Chrome Effect feature that will be able to reproduce the natural tones and darker shades. The camera will have an extensive ISO range of 100-12800.
Powered by the X-Processor Pro processing engine, the medium format Fujifilm GFX50s will be equipped with Film Simulation colour reproduction and will be able to record 1080p videos at 30 fps. There’s a 3.69 million dot resolution organic electronic viewfinder with a 2.366 million dot touchscreen LCD panel which with the help of a tilt adapter will be able to move to an angle of 90-degrees.
Weighing in at under 825 grams, the Fujifilm GFX50s is made of a magnesium alloy which along with a substantially sized lens will still weigh only 60 percent of a traditional DSLR. The design of the camera is made to withstand dust and water from entering the inside of the GFX50s and is backed up by a massive battery that allows you to capture at least 400 still images on a single charge.
Fujifilm has also introduced its own FUJINON GF Lenses, seven of them are now currently available in the India market. These lenses start from Rs 1,19,999 for the GF63mmF2.8 R WR with the most expensive one going all the way up to Rs. 3,53,999 for GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR.
Commenting on the launch, Fujifilm India MD, Haruto Iwata said “We are excited to launch the much-awaited GFX50s and G-mount lenses for our esteemed customers in India. Fujifilm’s X Series system has been appreciated by professional photographers and photo enthusiasts around the world, due to its excellent image quality and mobility across a wide range of genres including landscape, commercial and fashion photography. ”
