    Fun with the GFX 50R

    This MF camera is designed as a more portable form than the big brother 50S, it is fitting to show off new uses for MF cameras.

    One observation is the dynamic range of the sensor, it goes back to my days processing B&W film, "expose for the highlights, develop for the shadows". I went out to the vineyards to capture the morning light as the sun rose. Cropped heavily into the image, processed in LR suppressed the highlights, opened the shadows.

    Testing out my lenses on the 50R, 23, 45, 63 and 80 Summilux early morning in Yountville, CA. The plus side of an EVF is the ability to change the crop mode in the viewfinder and compose to the frame that is desired.

    K-H,
    1:1 crop of a full frame capture, here is the full image-very slight vignette at the corners.

    Dave,
    Nice capture, the B&W conversion adds a lot of drama from the clouds.

    Welcome Archie

    Just a quick note. On the "Fun with---" threads usually camera/lens/settings are appreciated in addition to location. Thanks.

    Perfect examples of what the 'idea' behind the R is - an easy to carry around high image IQ fun to use snap shooter.

    Re: Fun with the GFX 50R

    I finally did a fashion shoot with my GFX 50R, I wrote about it here https://www.engineroomcreative.com/u...rst-photoshoot

    I shot everything with the 63mm f2.8 all @2.8 I decided to use the natural light after testing some flash out and used it between 640 & 800 ISO the results were quite pleasing, i was impressed.
    It isn't the easiest camera body to handle but the rewards are clear. I added some grain in post as it sits in with my vision for the vibe of the story.
    Here are a couple of shots.


    GFX 50R + 63mm f/2.8 - ISO:640 1/125 f/2.8

    Still learning to use my new GFX 50R and 23mm and 32-64mm lenses. This image made with a monopod and 32-64 at about f11. I really like this camera!

    Re: Fun with the GFX 50R

    My wife and I went to Cape May for three days last week to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary (Feb 7). We stayed at our favorite Cape May hotel, Congress Hall. The weather did not cooperate at all. But I was determined to use my new medium format camera anyway (Fuji GFX 50R). My bad hip is getting worse, so I am using a cane, waiting for surgery to get a new hip. That prevents me from going on the beach, so I stayed on the boardwalk and did the best I could under the circumstances.
