Why do professional users choose Fuji medium format cameras to take photos?
There has always been a saying in the photography circle that “the bottom one is crushing people to death”. In fact, in simple terms, the larger the sensor size, the better the image quality. The advantages of large-size sensors over small-size sensors are very obvious.
In the field of professional photography, medium-format models have better picture quality than full-frame products. For example, Fuji’s GFX 50R, a medium-format mirrorless camera, has been favored by photographers and enthusiasts since its launch. Let’s take a closer look at this medium format mirrorless camera and see why it is favored by professional users.
Everything is born for taking pictures

Compared with the 135-frame camera, which emphasizes the full range of functions, the Fuji GFX 50R is more pure. This is a camera born for taking pictures. Whether it is a 50-megapixel medium-format sensor, or functionality and controllability, GFX 50R pays more attention to the basic attribute of taking photos, and will do everything possible to do this. It is precisely because of this ultimate pursuit of a single function that has moved many professional users and photography enthusiasts. After all, many professional users do not need a panacea product, they prefer professional equipment that specializes in shooting.
The medium format sensor area is larger, and the image quality is much higher than the 135 format product
The biggest advantage of the 135 format camera What is it? Picture quality! More specifically? It is the high pixels that bring better picture details, and the large-size sensor has better noise control and tolerance performance.
Let’s take a look at the 50 million-level medium format sensor of the GFX 50R, which can bring amazing picture details.
This is to use For the landscape photos taken by GFX 50R, we pay attention to the red frame area in the lower right corner of the screen
Enlarge the red frame area 100%, we can see the amazing detail expressiveness of GFX 50R
100% zoom in the lower right corner of a landscape photo taken by GFX 50R, we can see the texture of the roof tiles. And we must know that the area we zoom in is the edge of the screen. This is due to the 51.4 million pixel medium format sensor, and on the one hand, it is also due to the excellent optical quality of the G series lens.
Next, let’s look at the performance of noise control. Because a larger image sensor is used, the area of a single pixel is larger and the interference between pixels is smaller. Therefore, in the high sensitivity Under the circumstances, it can also have a purer picture quality performance.
The medium format GFX 50R is very pure when the sensitivity is below ISO 3200. In the case of ISO 6400/12800/25600 with three high sensitivity levels, the noise is not particularly obvious. This noise control level is much higher than that of a 135-frame camera. Even if you want to take long exposure photos of the starry sky, you can get a pure picture.
Night scene long exposure can also get pure image quality
Tolerance is also one of the most important indicators to measure the image quality of a camera. This is also It is also the strong point of Fuji GFX 50R. Through the actual test, even the 7th gear under exposure can still be adjusted back later.
Fuji GFX 50R has excellent performance in tolerance. Good detail recording ability, excellent dark part repairability. All this provides a considerable processing space for the later stage.
has a better imaging performance than the environment in large light
In addition to image quality performance, medium format cameras also have a congenital depth of field and stereo perception Advantage. Even without using a large aperture to shoot, you can clearly feel that the image of a medium format camera has a clear sense of depth, creating a three-dimensional image.
One of the advantages of medium format is the depth of field and three-dimensional effect of imaging
high-pixel, large-size medium-format sensor, which brings us even better Picture details, better high-sensitivity control noise performance and higher tolerance performance, these are real improvements in image quality. The three-dimensional sense of the picture is also the main reason why professional users and photography enthusiasts favor GFX 50R.
Excellent control and easier to master
As a medium format model, Fuji GFX 50R does not have a huge volume, a mirrorless structure and The use of EVF viewfinder allows it to have a more compact and portable body, allowing users to better control this professional model without causing too much burden, which is very rare in the field of medium format cameras .
While being compact, the GFX 50R has not given up its handling. The camera adopts the design of double dials, which can set the shooting parameters more efficiently, and enhance the shooting experience, bringing a sense of ceremony. When professional users adjust these photographic parameters, they must also outline in their minds what kind of picture these parameters will bring.

flip touch screen
is worth It is mentioned that Fuji GFX 50R is also equipped with a flip touch screen, and the body control of GFX 50R is largely related to the touch screen. The four directions of sliding up, down, left, and right correspond to the settable functions, and various parameters of the camera can be adjusted quickly and simply. Same as the Fn button of the body, it can also be set according to the user’s own habits to improve the control efficiency of the camera.
GFX 50R uses an EVF electronic viewfinder with 3.69 million pixels and a 3.2-inch screen with 2.36 million pixels. Whether using the EVF to view the composition or directly observing the composition from the screen, it brings a good framing experience to the user, and it can better restore the photo during playback.
High-definition EVF viewfinder
GFX 50R adopts a dual card slot design, and all support UHS-II standard, for 50 million pixel level And for the commonly used RAW format GFX 50R, this design guarantees shooting efficiency and stability. For professional users, the storage of a camera must be considered, it is directly related to the smoothness of shooting and the security of photo data.

rich G-mount lens
As a professional camera with interchangeable lenses, behind the Fuji GFX 50R is a strong backing composed of G series lenses. At present, there are ten G-mount lenses and one 1.4X lens. Teleconverter. These lenses have large aperture fixed focus, standard zoom and telephoto zoom lenses, which can shoot various subjects such as humanities, scenery, close-ups, etc., to meet the different shooting needs of professional users.
You can still take pictures with confidence on ice and snow
And these lenses are dust-proof and water-resistant, and can work normally in severe cold. Together with the GFX 50R with the same excellent protection performance, it can cope with various harsh shooting environments.
higher performance and price is also attractive enough
Compared with the 135-frame camera, the better picture quality performance, no mirror structure The portability and handling designed for professional users, as well as rich lens resources and excellent protection performance, are the advantages of this medium format camera. And one more important point is that the current price of the GFX 50R single body is less than 30,000 yuan, which is a very competitive price among medium format models.
You need to know that many full-frame models cost more than RMB 16,000 for a single body. Now you can get a medium-format model with a fundamentally improved picture quality for less than RMB 30,000. , We must know that “the bottom level is crushing to death.”
