Fujifilm X-T50 mid-level APS-C Mirrorless Camera

By on

FUJIFILM Corporation has introduced the FUJIFILM X-T50, the latest model in their X Series. The Fujifilm X-T50 is a classically-styled mid-level APS-C mirrorless camera.

The FUJIFILM X-T50 is equipped with a 40.2-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor used by the X-T5 and X-H2 and the high-speed X-Processor 5 image processing engine. It features a 5-axis in-body image stabilisation (IBIS) function with up to 7.0 stops of compensation, ensuring exceptional image quality and performance in a portable design.

The US price of the X-T50 is $1399 (B&H Photo / AmazonAdorama), representing a $500 increase over the X-T30 II and a $100 increase, relative to the 26MP, stabilized X-S20. It’s also available with the retractable 15-45mm power zoom for $1499 or with the new 16-50mm F2.8-4.8 for $1799.

X-T50 Mirrorless Digital Camera

Dedicated Film Simulation Mode Dial

  • For the first time on any X Series camera, X-T50 features a dedicated Film Simulation dial for fast, easy access to a wide variety of Fujifilm Film Simulations. There are a total of 20 Film Simulation modes available for X-T50 including the recently introduced REALA ACE mode, which combines true-to-life color reproduction and crisp tonal gradations. The new Film Simulation dial is incorporated on the top plate, allowing users to intuitively switch between the included Film Simulation modes with ease.

40.2 Megapixel X-Trans CMOS 5 HR Sensor

  • X-T50’s compact and lightweight body weighs approximately 438 grams (15.45 ounces)1, and features the X Series’ popular back-illuminated 40.2 megapixel X-TransTM CMOS 5 HR sensor and the high-speed image processing engine X-Processor 5. The latest image processing algorithm in the fifth generation X Series cameras delivers high resolution while maintaining a high signal-to-noise ratio. X-T50 is compatible with all X Series lenses, and the sensor’s high pixel count of approximately 40.2 megapixels is maximized by the digital teleconverter function2, allowing images to be magnified by either 1.4x or 2x. X-T50’s pixel structure allows light to be captured efficiently; with ISO 125, the electronic shutter can be set to a shutter speed of up to 1/180000 second, achieving highly precise control of exposure time.

In-body Image Stabilization (IBIS) and Auto mode

  • X-T50 is equipped with a 5-axis IBIS function with a maximum of 7.0 stops3. While maintaining the mobility that has been a key feature of previous X Series models, X-T50 enables comfortable, hand- held image making, even in low light. Equipped with an AI-based subject detection autofocus (AF) developed using deep learning technology, X-T50 can detect animals, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, airplanes, trains, insects, and drones4. When in Auto mode, X-T50 detects the subject and tracks it while keeping it in focus, making it easy to create high-quality still images and movies.

6.2K/30P and 4K/60P video capabilities

  • For video creators, 6.2K/30P recording is available. Tracking AF functionality is also available for high-quality video recording.
  • X-T50’s extensive 13+ stop dynamic range on F-Log2 is perfect for color grading.

Sophisticated product design

  • X-T50 features a 1.84 million-dot, tiltable rear LCD monitor inside a new, rounded body and grip, designed to fit comfortably in the hand while maintaining a compact size.
  • A pop-up flash integrated into the viewfinder is mounted on the top plate, automatically controlling the amount of light needed for dark scenes and backlit portraits.

Native Frame.io Camera to Cloud Connectivity

X-T50 offers an accessory-free, native Camera to Cloud integration for Adobe’s Frame.io, which allows users to wirelessly connect any X-T50 to an active internet connection, authenticate it to Frame.io, and automatically upload photos and videos just moments after they are created. This can drastically reduce the amount of time needed to reach the end of any post-production workflow. X-T50 is the latest X Series camera to integrate Frame.io’s Camera to Cloud technology, joining FUJIFILM X-H2, FUJIFILM X-H2S, FUJIFILM X-T5, FUJIFILM X-S20, and FUJIFILM X100VI mirrorless digital cameras in offering the capability.
