Fujifilm GFX 50S II is equipped with a 51.4-megapixel large format sensor with image-resolving power that is claimed to capture more detail and sharpness. In addition, the GFX 50S II features a five-axis image stabilisation mechanism that provides up to 6.5 stops of vibration reduction. The company has also refreshed its X-T30 digital camera with the launch of the X-T30 II. This features a 26.4-megapixel X-Trans CMOS sensor with more memory than its predecessor and an improved LCD with 1.68 million dots of resolution. Fujifilm has introduced a series of new lenses as well.

Fujifilm GFX 50S II

The new Fujifilm GFX 50S II is priced at $3,999 (roughly Rs. 2,92,000) for the body only. It is the most affordable medium format digital camera from the company. It is expected to be available in late October. The new Fujifilm camera has a 51.4-megapixel large format sensor, which is claimed to use a specialised design that maximises light resolution per pixel and improves image sharpness.

The GFX 50S II comes with 19 film simulation modes, including Nostalgic Neg — originally launched in Fujifilm's GFX 100S — that is characterised by high saturation and soft tonality. GFX50S II also features a five-axis image stabilisation mechanism that provides up to 6.5 stops for vibration reduction. It has a high-precision AF system and is claimed to feature more accurate autofocus in face/ eye detection compared to the previous generation GFX 50S. The camera also features a compact and powerful in-body image stabilization (IBIS) mechanism and the Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function, capable of creating 200-megapixel images almost entirely free of false colour presentation.
