In today’s blog we hear from Fuji X Aus member, Mati Beetson, on his experience using the GFX 50S and the newer and smaller GFX 50R. It is nice to see some love for the X-Series bigger brothers especially from someone who shoots with both. Mati has a truly unique photographic approach to his landscape, seascape, wildlife and even aerial photography. Let’s hear what Mati has to say.
When I first picked up the 50r body it was definitely a wow moment for me, having used the 50s on and off over the last 12 months I thought I had really gotten used to its bulk. So, it was a bit of a shock/nice surprise to immediately feel a lighter medium format body in hand.
Apart from the fact there is a 145gram difference compared to the 50s with standard EVF (minus the tilt adaptor), the balance of the camera I find to be a real blessing…I won’t miss the brick on the back of the 50s!
Being a long-ish term user of the Xt1/2 with a mixed bag of lenses, using the 50s and now 50r has reminded me of the times when you ‘slowed’ down to use medium format film cameras. Using such a high megapixel camera (much like their film MF counterparts) it really does show up poor technique quite brutally!

Igor Vyvey is a man of many photographic talents. You would be mistaken to think that he just shoots macro. Getting in close and personal. And that is very true. He does shoot some amazing macro shots – stay tuned for an upcoming blog about that! But he is my favourite kind of photographer. The kind that will have a go at any genre. I have seen him walking the streets of Melbourne in a bid to capture some street photography. He has more recently been experimenting with model photography too. He is also a regular at Fuji X Aus events in Sydney. And, of course, he loves his nature photography. Birds and wildlife. Which is why he recently took a new set of Fujifilm binoculars out with him on a wildlife shoot. Let’s hear what Igor though about the experience and the product.

Someone saw photos of me out on a shoot with a Greg and asked if I could do a review for Greg because they were looking to shoot with him. It’s at this point that I realised that Greg hasn’t had a lot of publicity and reviews so it was time for a Greg v0.1 review. Continue reading “Greg v0.1 Review”
