Fujifilm GFX 50R is a compact version of GFX 50S and is the cheapest medium-format mirrorless FujiFilm camera, which was presented two years ago. Thanks to a smaller size, traveling with it should become less troublesome. It is also significantly cheaper than its older brother.
When it comes to the specification of both cameras, at first glance we will not find any differences. Both cameras are equipped with the 51.4MP and have the dimensions of 43.8 x 32.9mm. The heart of both devices is X Processor Pro. We can take photographs with the maximum speed of 3f/s, within the ISO range of 100 - 12800 (extendable to ISO 102400). The cameras record videos in Full HD with the speed of 30f/s and they are equipped with the 114-point autofocus.

The differences between the two FujiFilm cameras concern their constructions and sizes. GFX 50R is significantly smaller, its dimensions are 161 x 97 x 66mm and it weighs 775g. A smaller construction led to a change in the camera's ergonomics - on the upper panel, there are only dedicated shutter speed and exposure control knobs. At the back, we will not find a 4-direction selector - it has been replaced with gesture handling on the touch screen. There are also four function buttons, two knobs and the AF joystick.

The camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder made in OLED technology, which offers the resolution of 3.69MP at 0.77x zoom. A rotated LCD 3.2" touch screen has the resolution of 2.33MP. We also have two SD card slots in the UHS-II standard and thanks to Bluetooth, our camera will be able to remain in constant connectivity with other devices, ensuring, for instance, the transfer of taken photographs. A fully-charged battery enables taking 400 photographs, the camera is sealed and compatible with Capture One software.
