Fujifilm has launched the GFX 50R medium format mirrorless camera in India.

The Japanese photography and imaging major’s latest gadget offers the FUJIFILM G Format image sensor, which is almost 1.7 times the size of a full-frame 35mm image sensor.

The GFX 50R uses a 50-megapixel sensor and is light in weight with an easy grip and a slim, rectangular body.

The GFX 50R uses the same sensor and lenses as the 50S hence it’s touted to achieve the same stunning levels of image quality.

Fujifilm launched the GFX 50R at Photokina 2018 in September at Koelnmesse, Cologne, Germany.

The GFX 50R is a slimmer and lighter version of the GFX 50S but is a lot more affordable. It’s priced at Rs 3,69,999 (for just the body), compared to Rs 5,11,999 for the GFX 50S.

GFX 50R is the first camera in the GFX system to feature Bluetooth compatibility.

Along with the GFX 50R medium format mirrorless camera, the company also launched two new XF lens for its X series line-up.

While weighing nearly 145g less and 25mm thinner than the FUJIFILM GFX 50S, the camera continues the compact, lightweight, and superior image quality characteristics of Fujifilm’s GFX medium format mirrorless digital camera system, the company said in a statement.
