I imagine a pretty experimental rack, maybe a second use is distilling whisky?

 

The USB3 socket of the X-T2 body can also be connected to a USB2 Micro-B plug. This is news for me, haven't known that there's kind of down-compatibility.

Which means you can use your old USB2 Micro-B plug remote control with the X-T2, in addition to the Canon style remotes that go into the mic or headphone socket. Cool, good to know.

Not only this: There's also a remote control which uses this plug  ;) and the 2.5 mm is also available, plus the mechanical thread on the shutter button and the WiFi...

 

Hmm, I really wonder if I have to be present with so man remote options  :D . Nearly overkill, just the weird Nikon 10 contact thread is not supported.  B)

Well, after looking it up in the menus, the battery will be dead already  :lol:

I don't even know whether the IR works in default or if I really should go look it up in the menus.

 

Had the IR remote and hated it btw, wifi is not better. #bestlagisrandomlag

In default IR is off, as it sucks a bit of energy, too. Okay, with mirrorless a battery belt is mandatory, so this couple of Wh don't matter much more  B)

But as long as you don't have to buy an app to activate it, everything is smooth, no?

The kit (body + 63 f2.8 WR) will be "well under $10.000". That is not cheap, but it undercuts Hasselblad's new offering.

Fuji claims its sensor is a new development, even though its specs are remarkably similar to the sensor in the Hasselblad, Pentax, including having a Bayer pattern CFA.

 

FF seems to have the advantage concerning fast lenses, though.

Comparison in size to D810

This is not the first time I thought "that could have been the FF Nikon mirrorless". It would have made sense and by going larger with the mount, all users with more than 5 active braincells could understand the need of new lenses. It's just, that Fujifilm has much more experience with (real) MF lenses.  :P

Not sure why they do not compare it to the size of a Sony A7r II, though.

...or a Canon 5DS  :P or a Sigma SD quattro - they all would look pretty bricky.

 

It's normal you're "not sure". One day mirrorless has to be compact and nothing else and if it's not it's a waste of material, the other day it's the equivalencing game. You can be happy not to understand some contradictions...

I think they trying to say "Nikon, wake up"

They don't want to put something even uglier next to it. Same goes for Leica SL too.

There will be a range of adapters to connect third-party lenses to the GFX 50S, including leaf shutter lenses for studio and flash work. For example, there has been reports about a Hasselblad HC adapter with leaf shutter, electronic aperture and autofocus support. 

 

https://fuji-x-secre...jifilm-gfx-50s/

 

 

If true, they just sold a bulk load of these cameras.

More information from Fuji-Addict, who got it from DC-Watch

 

After looking at the pictures, I found a lot more things to like:

  • bigger battery
  • charging socket on left side
  • lots of sockets closeby
  • straps to be attached on Mamiya-like (or peakdesign) bolts
  • two SD card-slots, so with Western digital/Sandisk's 1TB prototype (and long cable to AC-supply) quite some thousand shots possible  :rolleyes:
  • EVF is detachable, therefore two possible, one fixed, one tilt/swivel
  • lot of minor details

Well, Nikon, some people use their brains not as much for antique concepts. B)

Had noticed how strap bolts really look like to be Hasselblad style. Not surprising since the H series is made by Fujifilm, they even had released some under their own name.

 

It's a pretty good design too. Looks elegant and it's really easy to attach/remove the strap quickly, getting it out of the way when on a tripod and takes seconds to put one back when needed.

The sensor is a sensor from Sony, like the Nikon D810 sensor is from Sony. Fuji, like Nikon, did some changes. So, quite similar to the Hasselblad and Pentax.

 

Unclear if the announced lenses have shutters?

No. If they had, it would have been all over the place as well, no one mentioned a lens shutter of any of them.
 
Edit:
  • GFX is equipped to support leaf shutter lenses. Fuji has no current plans to release leaf shutter lenses or adapters, but will release the specs to support other manufacturers to do so.
/Edit
 
However, I wonder what the "C" on the Aperture left of the "A" ring does? So far I can chnage the apterure in the Fuji remote app. becasue they all have electrical actuated aperture diaphragm, but C? What at the Hasselblad side of things? C?

Although sensor size is bigger than full frame, everything smaller than large format (4X5in) is called medium format.

to illustrate it

MFT: 18X13,5mm

APS-C (nikon and sony) 23.5 X15.7

full frame 23X36

fuji GFX 32.9X43.8

while phase one is much larger 40.4X53.7 and they already have 100MP

Medium format is not a standard like full frame

C will let you assign the command dials on the camera to aperture and/or ISO, just like how T mode behaves on the shutter speed dial on X-T1 after some firmware updates.
