Coming in at nearly five times larger than a full frame sensor, the RZ has resolution for days and can produce tack-sharp images, making it great for landscape work.
Fujifilm's medium format range doesn't have a huge selection of lenses, but it does have some utterly superb glass never the less. Their latest release has turned a few heads, but how good is it for portraiture?
Medium format and street photography are two terms that turn me giddy, so any combination of the two is warmly welcome. Though this is taking the medium format part a bit further than most have!
The Fujifilm GFX 100S is one of the most impressive cameras we have seen in a long time, taking Fuji's highly respected 102-megapixel sensor from the GFX 100 and putting it in a much smaller body at nearly half the price, while still maintaining almost all the features from its larger sibling. This great video takes a first look at the camera and the kind of performance you can expect from it in the real world.
The Fujifilm GFX 100S takes the company's flagship medium format monster and shrinks both its size and price almost by half with very little sacrifice of features. With this and the company's other GFX cameras, we are now seeing medium format prices well into the realm of full frame. What does that mean for the future of photography?
Fujifilm revolutionized the world of medium format a few years ago by introducing a line of cameras and lenses that offered all the benefits of the larger sensor size at prices that significantly undercut traditional medium format prices and even competed with upper-level full frame prices. The company is showing no sign of stopping, with more cameras and lenses to come next week, along with new X Series gear as well.
There are areas of photography that are revered by many photographers, two of them are medium format and Polaroid. However, combining the two has become tremendously expensive in recent years. Perhaps now there's a solution.
Fujifilm has been quietly dominating the rather niche market of reasonably priced medium format cameras. However, their rumored newest addition is either going to the perfect option in that sector, or it's going to narrowly miss that target.
For many film photographers, particularly those only recently getting into film, the question of going to medium format reaches everyone at some point. The smallest format, 645, is debatably not worth the additional costs over 35mm.
The recently launched XH Converter 0.8 reveals more opportunities for photographers when using H System lenses. Take a look at this hands-on review and first impressions of this adapter.
The Fuji GFX 100 is an amazing camera. But one simple fix could greatly improve its usefulness in my workflow.
Sometimes gear grows on you. And sometimes a piece of equipment’s effectiveness is less about specs and more about combinations.
While these two cameras are different in a whole host of ways, they have similar strengths insofar as they're both concerned with high resolution and for pixel peepers, it's an interesting comparison. However, what's more interesting — to me at least — is a real-world, artistic comparison; which produces more pleasing results?
I would have sworn that "affordable" and "medium format" were mutually exclusive. I would have been wrong.
Though it was introduced 50 years ago, the Mamiya RB67 is still one of the most beloved cameras out there, widely sought after by many film photographers. What makes this camera so special? This great video follows a photographer as he shoots with it for the first time.
