43.8mm x 32.9mm, 51.4 MP CMOS Sensor
The Fuji GFX 50S utilises an area approximately 1.7x that of a full-size sensor, making it ideal for large-format commercial prints and outdoor billboards, or for shooting majestic landscape photos or archives of historical documents. Both resolution and sensitivity are significantly better due to the larger size of each individual pixel, resulting in excellent tone reproduction.
The "Film Simulation" feature, which uses digital technology to reproduce the tones of colour and black and white film from the past, can be experienced in ultra-high image quality. In addition, a new Colour Chrome Effect feature has been added, which reproduces tones and deep colours in highly-saturated subjects.

Small, Lightweight Body Made of Magnesium Alloy
The highly-robust body is suitable for shooting in harsh conditions, and is dustproof and moisture-resistant. It can operate at temperatures down to -10°C. This lightweight body weighs just 825g, allowing for easy handheld shooting. A brand new 0.5-inch 3.69M-dot organic EL panel has been adopted for the Electronic Viewfinder, which features 5 glass elements to increase magnification by 0.85x. A separately sold EVF-TL1 tilt adapter allows you to change the angle to a maximum of 90° in landscape and 45° in portrait.
A 3.2-inch, 2.36M-dot high-definition liquid crystal panel has been adopted for the rear monitor, allowing the user to confirm accurate focusing and colour reproduction. The panel also fully functions as a viewfinder and supports touch operation.
The focal plan shutter achieves a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. (*1/16000 sec. when using electronic shutter), a flash synchronization speed of 1/125 sec. or less, and high performance and durability with a shutter endurance supporting up to 150,000 shots. It also achieves low vibration and a quiet shutter noise.
Dual SD Card (UHS-II recommended) slots are available and can be used in 3 ways: "Sequential," in which recording can be continued according to shooting order, "Backup," which records the same data on 2 cards simultaneously, and "Sorting," which records RAW and JPEG data on separate cards.
Easy-To-Use Dial Operation System
the GFX 50S features dedicated dials to independently set aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity. Each dial features a C Position (Command Dial Position): setting the dial to this position allows the user to change exposure settings using the command dials equipped on the front and rear portions of the camera body grip.
The camera is equipped with a 1.28-inch sub LCD monitor on the upper Command Dial section of the body. Important exposure data such as aperture values and shutter speed is visible from the top of the camera or even when viewed from the front side.
A 117-point (9 x 13/maximum of 425 points when miniaturized) contrast AF with distance measuring points has been adopted for the AF system. focus point selection can be performed either by using the highly acclaimed Focus Lever, which allows intuitive movement of the focus point. Alternatively, users can select the focus point via touch operations using the rear LCD.

Brand New Extremely Robust and Durable Large Diameter G Mount
With a diameter of 65mm and a flange back of 26.7mm, the G Mount is a dedicated mount, constructed from stainless steel, that is designed to make full use of the performance of the G Format. All FUJINON GF lenses have been designed to support resolutions of sensors up to 100 MP, and are made from high-strength brass.
In addition to the A (Auto) Position setting that featured on the aperture ring in the X Series, a new C (Command Dial) Position has been added, allowing for the aperture value to be changed even from the camera body. In order to withstand use in harsh professional photography environments, all FUJINON GF lenses are dust-proof and moisture resistant, and feature a low temperature resistant structure for temperatures as low as -10°C.
