In late 2018, Fujifilm released its medium format GFX 50R camera. Wanting to upgrade to something lighter with higher specs, the GFX 50R seemed to have all the hallmarks of a good camera, was affordable, and therefore got my attention.
What sets this camera apart from the others is the size of its 44 × 33mm 51MP CMOS format sensor making it almost 1.7x larger than the full frame sensor.
I wasn't able to render this in 8K using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. Instead, the 90 second movie was rendered at 4K. To give the effect of 8K, each of the scenes zoom in to 50 percent for the second half of each clip. The detail is definitely there, making the footage ideal for moving around in the frame when editing.
Once the sequence was rendered, I played it back on my 4K TV. The detail was amazing, so much so that I noticed the rabbits moving around on the clay bank on the far side of the lake in the 4th clip - something I had not noticed until this time.
