Workshop for new Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format Mirrorless Camera

Join us for an information session with the new Fujifilm GFX 50S…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What?  Demo/workshop on the functions & safe usage practices for the Fujifilm GFX 50S

When?  Friday October 13th at 3:00PM

Where?  Main Building  – M010

Who? MICA Photography majors & concentrators

Come get your hands on our new Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format digital camera. The info session will last approximately 30 minutes with time for Q&A.

MICA photo students must participate in a training session to gain access to this camera. If you are unable to attend our brief meeting session, you will have to schedule an individual session with Jefferson and/or Sara.

“Characterized by its large sensor, advanced imaging capabilities, and modular design, the GFX 50S from Fujifilm is a unique medium format mirrorless camera that is highly versatile and distinctly portable. At the heart of the GFX camera system is the 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor, which pairs with the X-Processor Pro image processor to produce files with extremely wide dynamic range and high resolution, as well as an extended sensitivity range of ISO 50-102400 for working in difficult lighting conditions. The sensor’s large form factor also achieves a unique three-dimensional look with especially smooth tonal and color transitions. Beyond this, the sensor and processor combination also avails the ability to work in a variety of aspect ratios common to traditional large and medium format film cameras, as well as the ability to shoot at up to 3 fps or record Full HD 1080p/30 video. As forward-thinking as the GFX 50S is, its use of film-camera inspired design imbues it with intuitive operation and the ability to apply the camera system to myriad styles and methods of image-making.” ~ From B&H website
