It is the second mirrorless medium format camera ever produced and the first one with the shutter attached to the body and not to the attached lenses (focal plane shutter).[4]

The camera's 43.8x32.9 mm2 sensor is 1.7x larger in area than that of 35 mm, built by Sony and customised by Fujifilm.[5] The crop factor compared to the 35 mm format as a reference is 0.79.[6] The camera's lens mount is the Fujifilm G-mount.[7] GFX 50S jointly won a Camera Grand Prix Japan 2017 Editors Award.[8]

The GFX50S II and the GFX 50R succeeds the GFX 50S. The GFX50S II was announced on September 2, 2021 and the GFX 50R was announced on September 25, 2018.[9]
