Fujifilm GFX 50R time-lapse trial – Time.Lapse Photography Article

In the later part of 2018, I noted that Fujifilm released its medium format GFX 50R onto the market. Wanting to upgrade my next camera to something lighter with higher specs, the GFX 50R seemed to have all the hallmarks and got my attention.  I also noticed that Fujifilm were making their medium format cameras more affordable, and that’s a good thing.  Not only is the GFX 50R mirrorless, but it’s not really that much bigger than some other DSLRs…
