Street Photography With the Fujifilm GFX 50s

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

New to the forum, just joined.

 

I’ve been shooting people on the street for about a year now and using the GFX50S with the 110 mm f2 most of the time. I also have the 32-64mm but I don’t use it quite as much. I find it to be about the same weight as my aD800, grip and 24-70mm.

 

Below is a link to some of my images on Flickr.

Shoot me an email if you want to chat.

 

Thank you

Then is too heavy to do street photo. It is better x100 for this theme

Well, I am assuming then that you are speaking from experience either as an owner or at the very, very least, someone who has used a GFX50S with a GF lens on the street. If So, and it is too heavy for you, then fine, your opinion....if not, then don’t make un-substantiated, generalized statements!

It is my opinion . In the past I used nikon d3 and i found it too heavy. I am 67 years hold , and three year ago I decided for fuji xt1 for street photos. I think in the studio hassy, linhof or gfx 50, can be ok, but  for street photo they ask to be young and dynamic

Well,

 

I, too, am 67...born 1951. I respect your opinion that for You, it would be too heavy....the most I can do walking is about 2-3 hours at a time but not because of the camera but because my feet get tired. I don’t find it heavy at all.

 

I still invite you to see some of my street portraits with the GFX and 110mm lens...that and 2 Spare batteries is all I carry.

By the way...I am old and fragile and NOT young and dynamic....

Great images! I use the 63mm, 45mm for street, 110mm for distance (i.e. from a boat) - I do find those lenses or the 32-64 zoom plus 110mm are heavy to carry for a day. The 63/45 combo and camera are fine for a whole day. It is the image quality I care about and all of those lenses help me to produce images I love.

Him,

 

I’m glad to hear you use the GFX on the street....i’m with you...image quality is key for me as well.

If you have a Flickr link, post it, I would like to see your street images....

 

Take care...

Weegee shot street with a 4x5 Graflex.  The GFX is a midget by comparison.

True, but the Graflex 4x5 weighs less than the GFX 50s and lens.

I have one.  The lens is quite simple and incredibly light weight, even including the lens board it is mounted on.

I have the 50r and do not consider it an unreasonable street camera, although I understand that some would prefer a smaller camera.

This instagram account has almost exclusively pictures of people I didn't know (at least before I asked to take their picture) using the GFX 50r.  So far they are with the 63mm and 32-64mm (There are a couple images taken with an adapted lens, but they say as much in the description).

      Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same issue. I am using a Gfx 50s and a gf 23mm all running on the latest firmware 3.30 for the body and 1.10 for the lens.  I keep getting “turn camera off and back in again” error message.  Any ideas ???

      I couldn't help noticing that there is a movie icon in the GFX menu... you can see it here:
       
      http://www.photographyblog.com/news/fujifilm_gfx_50s_hands_on_photos/
       
      No mention of video capabilities in the announcement, however. I realise this might not be a priority for a lot of potential users, but shooting motion with those lenses and that size sensor does have interesting possibilities.
       
      Anyone in Koln able to look through the menu and glean any more information?
