Fujifilm launches its cheapest medium-format camera ever with the GFX50S II

Since you will be probably stuck in Singapore for a while, you might want to start taking some breathtaking landscapes photos of our little island. The new Fujifilm GFX50S II might just be the camera for this task.

At S$5,999 (body only), the GFX50S II is the most affordable digital medium-format camera from Fujifilm. By comparison, the previous cheapest Fujifilm medium-format camera is the GFX50R priced at S$6,999.

Despite its relatively lightweight body (for its class) at only 900g, the GFX50S II packs a 51.4-megapixel large-format sensor to capture every detail sharp across the frame.

Light is recorded to each pixel of GFX50S II’s image sensor at 1.7 times that of a full-frame sensor. As such, the GFX50S II is able to achieve a wide dynamic range and a high signal-to-noise ratio.

As a result, GFX50S II’s images will reproduce deep tonality and texture from the shadows to the highlights, according to Fujifilm. And expect excellent image clarity with minimal noise even when taken in low light.

In addition, the GFX50S II features 5-axis in-body stabilisation (IBIS) to prevent camera shake when you are taking photos in low lighting conditions. Not to mention, the IBIS controls sensor motion to add speed and accuracy to the overall autofocusing (AF) performance.

Plus, with its latest X-Processor 4 image processing engine and latest algorithms, the GFX50S II offers more accurate AF for face and eye detection to ensure sharp portraits.

The Fujifilm GFX50S II will be available later this month at authorised resellers at S$5,999 (body only). You can also opt for the body-lens bundle that comes with a GF 35-70mm f/4.5-5.6 WR lens for S$6,799. For more information, visit Fujifilm Singapore.
