FUJI FILM GFX 50S COMING 2017

gizguide-fujifilm-gfx-50s

Fuji Film jumps into the medium format camera world with its new offering the GFX 50S mirrorless 51.4MP camera scheduled to hit shelves in 2017.

Boasting to be smaller and lighter than most medium format cameras the GFX 50S looks a lot like bigger version of the traditional D-SLR with a few cool accessories including a rotating EVF prism viewfinder. Six lenses ranging from the 23MM – 120MM are slated for market also in 2017.

The GFX 50S has the same 51.4MP pixel count at the Pentax 645Z and the Hasselblad X1D.

I am very curious to see how this camera performs against its competitors as well as its price point.

Peter Lindbergh’s Views on Instagram

Everyone knows since the launch of Instagram there has been a change in how photographers and models are being booked. The idea that more followers equals skill and credibility.  In a recent article in TIME Magazine journalist Cady Lang posed this question to the legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh.

Below is an excerpt from the TIME Magazine interview:

“So many of the girls that are being booked right now in fashion have big Instagram followings. How do you see your work interacting in the digital age now?

I love Instagram! For certain reasons only though — as long as you don’t use it to show the world for instance, that you have dinner with Brad Pitt. If you have something you want to say, you can reach people you would never be able to before. But to be measured in followers, that’s one of those ridiculous things because that’s again the unsensible idea of one being important, following someone. There are many reasons why someone might follow you. If you have a great butt and you show it all the time, you might have a lot of followers but it doesn’t mean anything. If you are an artist and you think you are a great artist because you have a lot of followers, then Justin Bieber would be the Leonardo DaVinci of today. So forget about the followers.”
