The X-T50 Gets Everyone’s Attention with its Film Simulation Dial

A few months from bringing in the hype with the X100VI, Fujifilm follows it through with the release of the X-T50. The successor to 2019’s X-T30 (and 2021’s X-T30II), the X-T50 has the same 40.2 X-Trans 5 HR sensor found on the X100VI, X-T5, X-H2 and X-H2s. Sharing the same sensor also means that the X-T50 also has IBIS, making it Fujifilm’s smallest mirrorless camera to have in-body image stabilization. Just like the X100VI, the X-T50’s IBIS can compensate up to 6 stops.

Aside from quality of life changes like a more usable 3.5mm jack for the microphone and a more substantial hand grip, the biggest external change on the X-T50 is with the left dial, where it is now dedicated to Fujifilm’s popular film simulations that include Classic Chrome, Provia, Velvia, Astia, Acros, and Reala Ace–along with space for three more film simulations of your choice.

The X-T50 also inherits the latest autofocusing system found on the X-T5 and X100VI that includes AI subject detection, along with being able to record video at up to 6.2k 30FPS with tracking AF–the latter making the X-T50 a suitable hybrid camera for taking videos.

The X-T50 also introduces a new kit lens with the XF 16-50mm F/2.8-4.8 R LM WR, which has roughly the same size as the outgoing XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4 R LM OIS but sacrifices OIS and has a smaller aperture on the telephoto end. In exchange, the XF 16-50mm has internal zooming and weather resistance–provided that you buy a filter for it.

The Fujifilm X-T50 is priced in the Philippines as follows:

  • X-T50 Body only: Php 92,990
  • X-T50 with XC 15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ lens: Php 98,990.00
  • X-T50 with XF 16-50mm F/2.8-4.8 R LM WR lens: Php 117,990.00
