Shutter

The World's First Focal-Plane Shutter* Specifically Designed for Medium Format Mirrorless Cameras

The newly-developed focal-plane shutter is the world's first specifically designed for medium format mirrorless cameras. It is a low-noise mechanical shutter that withstands 150,000 actuations**, offers shutter speeds up to 1/4000 sec and has an electronic first curtain. Choose from three shutter types, including an electronic shutter.

Mechanical Shutter 4sec. to 1/4000sec. (P Mode), 60min. to 1/4000sec. (All Modes)
Bulb mode (up to 60min.), TIME: 60min. to 1/4000sec.

Focusing

9x13 (117 Points) / 17x25 (425 Points) Single Focus Points and Six Sizes of Focus Area

TTL Contrast AF is available in Single Point, Zone and Wide/Tracking modes. In the Single Point mode, the camera offers 9x13 (117 points) or 17x25 (425 points) and six different Focus Area sizes. Select the minimum size for pinpoint focusing.

Six AF Modes

AF-S + Single Point For capturing subjects using a specific AF point
AF-S + Zone For capturing subjects across a large AF area (3x3, 5x5, 7x7)
AF-S + Wide For automatically capturing a subject across the frame
AF-C + Single Point For continuous spot-focusing
AF-C + Zone For tracking a subject within a selected area
AF-C + Tracking For continuously tracking a subject across the frame

Focus Lever

Use the Focus Lever to move the focus area in eight directions (up/down, side to side, diagonally) for easy framing and accurate focusing.

Face Detection / Eye Detection AF

The camera automatically detects and focuses on a face or eyes. Priority can be given to either the right or left eye.

Depth of Field Scale

The distance indicator bar on the monitor can be used to check depth of field. Choose between the Pixel Basis and Film Format Basis options.

Focus Assist Function

Use the Focus Peaking function in Manual Focus mode. The Live View on the screen can be enlarged for more accurate focusing.

Exposure

Exposure Mode Settings Using Dials and Rings

The combination of settings on the Shutter Speed Dial, ISO Dial and Aperture Ring allow you to switch between four different exposure modes: Aperture Priority AE (A), Shutter Speed Priority AE (S), Program AE (P) and Manual. As dials are used for main exposure settings, you can adjust settings even when the camera is turned off. The Command Position (C/T) also enables Command Dial operations.

Photometry

Four Metering Modes

The FUJIFILM GFX 50S offers four metering modes: Multi, Spot, Average and Center Weighted. When spot metering, the focusing and metering areas can be linked.

Multi Calculates exposure based on analysis of the whole frame
Spot Takes a meter reading from an area occupying approx. 2% of the frame
Average Sets exposure based on the average brightness of the entire frame
Center Weighted Takes a meter reading mainly from the center of the frame

Continuous Shooting

Continuous Shooting at Approx. 3.0 fps

In continuous shooting mode, the FUJIFILM GFX 50S can shoot at up to 3.0 fps until the memory card fills up in JPEG, up to 8 frames in RAW, and up to 13 frames in compressed RAW.

Flash Shooting

Multi-Function Flash

Flash sync speed is up to 1/125 sec. When using the optional EF-X500, which supports FP mode, flash sync can be as fast as 1/4000sec (the maximum shutter speed possible with the mechanical shutter). The camera also caters to a variety of flash settings including multiple flash lighting.

Compatible Flash Fujifilm EF Series (excluding EF-X8)
Sync Terminal Yes Synchronized Shutter Speed for Flash 1/125sec. or Slower
SYNC. MODE 1ST CURTAIN / 2ND CURTAIN / AUTO FP (HSS)
FLASH MODE TTL (FLASH AUTO / STANDARD / SLOW SYNC.) / MANUAL / OFF
  • * When EF-X500 is set.

Notes

  • * Fujifilm research as of December 2016. Compared with other mirrorless digital cameras equipped with 43.8x32.9mm sensor or larger.
  • ** According to Fujifilm internal testing.
  • *** When using the electronic front curtain shutter, the continuous shooting speed drops to 1.8fps and using high speed shutter, the shutter switches to mechanical shutter. (1/640sec. to 1/4000)
