Street Photography With the Fujifilm GFX 50s


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

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.

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.

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).

    • 92•F is 33•C and that is pretty damn hot where I come from. If the camera was on the whole time, maybe it could have reached the warning limit without actually having a fault. I don’t know. You did not say which country you are in, I presume USA. The number would be 1-800-800-3854.  https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/repair-and-product-support/
    • I received my X-T50 two days ago.  I did not have time to take it out until this afternoon.  It is hot today, but not excessively so.  My car thermometer indicated 93 deg F, and the weather app on my phone said 92. I took 30 photos in a span of about 45 minutes.  The camera started feeling very warm and a warning appeared saying I was approaching the high temperature limit.  This would make sense if I were taking videos, but these were just still photos.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that the camera would reach such a high temp at 92-93 degrees ambient temperature?  I have another question. I was looking for a support phone number or email on the Fujifilm website but could not find one.  Does anyone know how to contact Fujifilm support to inquire about this high temperature condition?
    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
    • Agree with Jerryy..........I use the 70-300 A LOT and love it.  I have the 1.4 TC and I rarely use it, I find the lack of light to be limiting.  I recently bought the 150-600 Fuji lens and it is wonderful, super reach and super sharp.  A bit heavy to carry around so I still carry the 70-300 most of the time.  When I do take the 150-600 with me, I've been amazed with the results.
