Fujifilm launches the rangefinder-style GFX 50R Medium Format Mirrorless Camera along with two new XF lens for its X Series Range
  • GFX 50R features a large 51.4MP image sensor in a compact and lightweight body reminiscent of renowned medium format film cameras widely used in street and documentary photography

  • First in the GFX system to feature Bluetooth compatibility, with a rangefinder-style design


Fujifilm announced the launch of its rangefinder-style GFX 50R medium format mirrorless camera which features the FUJIFILM G Format (medium format, 43.8x32.9mm) image sensor, which is approx. 1.7 times the size of a full frame 35mm image sensor which is in use commonly.

The GFX 50R continues the compact, lightweight and superior image quality characteristics of Fujifilm’s GFX medium format mirrorless digital camera system, while weighing approx. 145g less and 25mm thinner than the FUJIFILM GFX 50S (GFX 50S). The GFX 50S had attracted high praise from professional photographers since its launch in January 2017. Yet, many field photographers who specialize in weddings, portraits and street photography have sought after an even more compact and lightweight camera, along the line of Fujifilm’s traditional medium format film cameras. With this in mind, FUJIFILM added the new "GFX 50R” to the lineup which is also the world’s smallest and most affordable medium format mirrorless camera. GFX 50R is also the first camera in the GFX system to feature Bluetooth compatibility. In India, the camera is available at a price of Rs 369,999 (Body Only).

Along with this, Fujifilm also added two new XF lenses namely XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens and XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR Lens to the lens lineup for its X Series range of Mirrorless cameras. The XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is a 12-24mm-equivalent lens featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. The XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is available at Rs 159,999/-.

The XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR Lens, on the other hand, is the first super-fast telephoto lens in the XF lens lineup, offering a fast maximum f-stop of 2.0 and a focal length equivalent to 305mm in 35mm film format. Taking advantage of technologies synonymous with FUJINON lenses, this new telephoto lens boasts exceptional image clarity with the ability to produce beautiful bokeh, making it the perfect choice for shooting sports and wildlife. It is available at a price of Rs 479,999/-.
