As one of the very few brands that aim to make medium format cameras more accessible to everyone, Fujifilm announced its latest–and most affordable–medium format camera to date with the GFX50S II. With an official local SRP of Php 223,990, this makes the GFX50S II even more affordable than professional full-frame cameras like the Canon EOS R5 and Sony Alpha 1 and over Php 100k more affordable than the GFX50S when it launched back in 2017.
With its accessible price tag for a medium format camera, the GFX50S II features a 51.4-megapixel medium format sensor that measures 55mm diagonally. That makes it 1.7x bigger than full-frame sensors found on its more expensive rivals. Aside from a huge sensor, the GFX50S II haws a 5-axis IBIS that Fujifilm claims can deliver up to 6.5 stops of stabilization. To make the most out of the sensor, the GFX50S II has a Pixel multi-shot feature, which moves the sensor between shots and combines them to capture 200-megapixel images.
While its autofocus is contrast-detection (and not phase detection) and video recording is limited to Full HD 1080p, the GFX50S II supports face and eye detection autofocus. Save for those features, the GFX50S has the same body and form factor as the GFX100S. Key features include a 1.8-inch top LCD, 3.2-inch LCD on an articulating hinge, and a magnesium alloy body with added padding at the bottom and weather sealing.
