First Steps With GFX 50S & Medium Format Photography

The Fuji GFX 50S just landed in my hands along with the 32-64mm F4 lens. It's different, and yes the image files are better exactly as you would expect.

I'm not going to write anything silly here about how brilliant everything will be with this camera. I just want to share some photographs from tonight at Higger Tor.

The silly stuff will come at a later point in time. For now hopefully here are a few sample images from the GFX 50S that are interesting. Click through the images to see the full resolution on Flickr. It is a little bit mind blowing. Zooming on a screen however isn't the reason for taking on this camera, that will be in the prints hopefully.

 Clear skies and freezing cold. It was tough getting to grips with a new camera while my hands were freezing up in the minus temperatures.  ISO200

Now I just need some new adventures to keep experimenting in favourite locations.
