The Fujifilm GFX 50R is a rangefinder-style mirrorless camera which will produce ultra-high quality images even though it is packed in a portable body that weighs only 775 grams.
The GFX 50R is the latest model in the GFX Series and it reached the store shelves at the end of 2018.
This camera does not bring a lot of improvements over its predecessor, the GFX 50S, but it is smaller and more affordable than any other model in the GFX series.

The Fujifilm GFX 50R Specs
The Fujifilm GFX 50R was built around 51.4-megapixel CMOS image sensor and X-Processor Pro image processing engine. With its sensor and image processor, the camera has an ISO range of 100 - 12,800 which can be extended from 50 to 102,400.
Among other features worth mentioning are 1080/30p video capture, TTL contrast AF with 425 points, a 3.69M-dot OLED EVF, a 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen (2,360k dots), in-camera RAW development, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and place for two SD cards.

As we already mentioned, the Fujifilm GFX 50R managed to incorporate the features of its predecessors in a much smaller body (160.7 x 96.5 x 66.4mm). The body (with battery and memory card) weighs only 775g which is definitely not a lot if we take into consideration its high-end capabilities.
The camera is also very durable. It was designed to operate in temperatures from between 14°F to 104°F and in humidity from 10 to 80%.
The GFX 50R differs from its predecessor by incorporating a touch LCD screen display that can be tilted up and down for easy viewing. There is also a high-resolution EVF with 3.69 million dots which can be useful in certain situations.
Some users are complaining that the hand-grip is too small for easy handling. Although the camera is made to be light-weighted it is still not one of the lightest models on the market, so you will still need to use both hands for shooting in most of the situations.
Editor's Tip: Your old gear isn't doing you any good collecting dust. SELL OR TRADE IN YOUR OLD CAMERAS AND LENSES AND UPGRADE YOUR KIT.
The Fujifilm GFX 50R gives you better connectivity options than earlier models from the GFX series.
