I Bought a New Fuji GFX 50r ... need a little help

Recommended Posts

mart46, you are right. I got Fuji on the phone and the tech explained that there is no way to turn it off, however, if you are shooting raw, it only shows the effects on the LCD. Once the card is read by the computer, it is a normal raw image with no film simulation effect.

I may be a tad late to this party but if you ever shot film that was a "film simulation" whether you liked it or not.  I used to shoot Fuji Velvia, or Kodak Vericolor, or Ilford B&W etc, etc  

With that said you can create a custom setting on the Fuji that will give you the FLATTEST look possible if that's what you are looking for.  There are certain settings if you want to capture the maximum dynamic range, etc.  I use this one as my C7 setting on my 50r and other Fuji's but the images in the LCD look like crap.  So plan on doing post-processing.  

If you are that unhappy with the simulations maybe try Provia.  It's as plain vanilla as you can get I think

Provia is indeed the most standard film simulation of all. When you use that as a starting point and create a custom profile dialing down all highlight, shadow and color settings to -1 or -2 you get a very flat profile in jpegs. You can also set the screen to 'Natural Live View' in the Setup>Screen Setting menu (switch it to ON). That way it will not display film simulations on screen (just monochrome and sepia when selected).

Note that when you select a film simulation (any) that information is also stored in the RAW file. Some RAW-convertors use that for display purposes when importing the RAW file. You can easily bypass that by selecting the required ICC profile and curve. In Capture One by default the RAW image will be displayed using the selected film simulation (camera specific ICC profile and curve on AUTO). When you want to see the pure RAW image in Capture One you should select LINEAR as a curve, You can default this in the import dialogue.

your RAW image can be converted to anything ... but if you want a jpeg it has to do something (some film simulation as they call it). The default jpeg is FILM SIMULATION PROVIA/STANDARD. You can also make a 'custom' FILM SIMULATION or your own 'recipe' and use that ...

Thanks "When you want to see the pure RAW image in Capture One you should select LINEAR as a curve, You can default this in the import dialogue" - I was not aware of that! Thank you for a useful tip.

    • Salve, qualcuna sa quanti minuti / ore di filmato in full hd si riesce a fare su una scheda da 64 gb? Grazie
    • I’m thinking in the other direction. Considering trading my 18-55 and 85mm f1.8 (Viltrox) for the 16-80. I have a 23 1.4 and a manual 50 1.4, so I think the extra zoom range is better to have than the longer fast prime. Also, I like the 16mm length and don’t have that now....
    • +1  Plug in overnight and you are good to go next day.  You can also buy a second battery and external charger and swap out the batteries when one gets low.  This works well for me when traveling or forgot to recharge.
    • Yes, agreed. All of my computers are made in China and many other electronic devices are also made in China. Japanese cars, for example, are no longer guarantee of quality and reliability. Someone I know bought a Honda Odyssey and ended up with a broken transmission and costed him $5000 to fix. Personally, I had to dump my Toyota after only a little over 30,000 miles in less than 4 years due to brake problems and other electronic problems. I paid premium price for my Toyota thinking I bought quality. But quality was not there.
    • Have you tried an other SD card?
