Now, I've been using the Fujifilm GFX 50R for over one year and I mostly appreciate its image quality. As a Fujifilm X Photographer and Ambassador, I have the opportunity to test new equipments from time to time. For a camera, image quality and ergonomics are the two main criteria for me. As soon as you handle the GFX 50R, you recognize the functions easy to use of the X series cameras: XT-3, XH-1 and X- pro2, which is an advantage when you need to react quickly, especially in instinctive photography.

For my part, I mainly use the Fujifilm cameras to make portraits in film festivals. Often the time allowed realizing this portrait is a minute or less. Fortunately, with medium format cameras such as the GFX 50R or X-Series cameras such as the XT-3, XH-1 and X- pro2, the camera detects and automatically focuses on face or on eyes, which is a considerable saved time and a consequent comfort. With the GFX 50R, the 50 Mpix image resolution allows to crop in the image and to get enough resolution for large format prints.
