Fujifilm GFX 50R PDF User Manual

Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Fujifilm GFX 50R? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Fujifilm makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the GFX 50R offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.

That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.

Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Fujifilm GFX 50R below.

Fujifilm GFX 50R FAQ

Below are some additional questions and answers concerning some particular features of the GFX 50R.

What technology is the imaging sensor in the GFX 50R based on?

The camera is build around a CMOS (Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor) sensor.

Which image processing chip is used to convert the raw signal into an image file and perform noise reduction and image sharpening?

Fujifilm equipped the GFX 50R with the X Processor Pro image processor.

What is the ISO sensitivity range of the GFX 50R?

The camera has a native sensitivity range from ISO 100 to ISO 12800, which can be extended to ISO 50-102400.

What is the life expectancy of the shutter in the Fujifilm GFX 50R?

Fujifilm does not publish a shutter rating for the GFX 50R. Yet, shutters in comparable cameras from other manufacturers are said to be good for at least 200 000 actuations. It should be noted, though, that this number represents a Mean Time before Failure. The shutter might fail earlier, or it might last longer. Anyway, in order to exhaust an expected shutter life of 200 000 shots over, say, three years, one would have to take about 200 pictures each and every day.

How do I find the shutter count on my GFX 50R?

Fujifilm embeds the number of shutter actuations in image metadata. You can check the number of shots that your GFX 50R has taken up to now by uploading a recent image to the free online shutter count finder app.

Is completely silent shooting possible with the Fujifilm GFX 50R?

The camera has an electronic shutter option, so that it is indeed feasible to capture images without any shutter noise.

Do I need to purchase an external camera trigger to shoot time-lapse sequences?

No, the Fujifilm GFX 50R has an intervalometer built-in, so that low frequency shooting (for example, flower blooming, sunset, moon rise) can be undertaken without the need to purchase a separate external intervalometer and related software.

Is it difficult to use manual focus lenses with the Fujifilm GFX 50R?

The GFX 50R offers focus peaking as a manual focus aid. This feature works by placing a colored highlight on in-focus zones within the image.

What is the fastest shutter speed that can be used with flash?

The GFX 50R's flash sync speed is 1/125 sec.

Does the Fujifilm GFX 50R support the Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus interface for SD cards?

Yes, the camera can indeed use UHS-II cards, which provide for data transfer speed of up to 312 MB/s, in both of its card slots.

Which battery does the GFX 50R use?

The camera gets its power from the NP-T125 (here at amazon), which is a rechargeable Lithium-Ion power pack.

Where can I find the best deals for the GFX 50R?

Grey imports from Asia, as found on ebay, are often very attractively priced. However, these cameras come without a warranty from Fujifilm.
