Key features

  • 40.2MP X-Trans CMOS 5 HR Sensor
  • Dedicated Film Simulation Dial for Instant Switching
  • 6.2K30p and 4K60p Video at Up to 4:2:2 10-Bit

The APS-C-format 40.2MP sensor and X-Processor 5 allow for 10-bit 6.2K 30p, 4K 60p, or FHD 240p video recording.

A benefit of the extra resolution the 40MP sensor provides is that you can utilize new 1.4x and 2x digital teleconverter modes, which give you the effective equivalent focal lengths of 49mm and 70mm, respectively. Depending on the shooting mode, digital teleconversion may be canceled or cannot be selected. You can also choose from two F-Log recording options.

What is quite interesting is that FUJIFILM has added a Film Simulation Dial on the X-T50.

The X-T50 also includes the new Film Simulation mode called REALA ACE. This joins 19 other included film simulation modes that you can choose from.

Film Simulation modes allow you to reproduce the look and feel of several of FUJIFILM’s film types. The X100VI boasts FUJIFILM’s latest recipe-REALA ACE-and also includes 19 other modes, including Provia, Velvia, Astia, Classic Chrome, PRO Neg.Std, PRO Neg. Hi, Classic Neg., Nostalgic Neg., Eterna Cinema, Eterna Bleach Bypass, Acros, Acros + Ye Filter, Acros + R Filter, Acros + G Filter, Black & White, Black & White + Ye Filter, Black & White + R Filter, Black & White + G Filter, and Sepia.

In addition to simulating specific film types, a Grain Effect mode is also available to replicate the look of old film photos with an organic textured appearance, which is especially noticeable when printing. Color Chrome and Color Chrome Blue effects are also available to deepen color, tonal response, and gradation with higher saturation colors.

The X-T50 utilizes in-body image stabilization, which can compensate for up to 7 stops of camera shake. 

For wireless connectivity, the X-T50 has Frame.io Camera to Cloud technology in addition to conventional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. You can use the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet LAN connection to connect to Frame.io and deliver hi-res raw or JPEG images, send h.264 video proxies, or upload video securely for review.
