Firstly, thanks to everyone who attended the GFX lanuch in Singapore today 17th Feb 2017
Hope everyone had a great time .. especially with the GFX
Also thanks to Fujifilm Singapore for the continued support…
I was given the chance to test out the new Fujifilm GFX camera a few months ago.
Besides testing it out in normal environment in Singapore, shooting weddings and portraits, I also wanted to stress test it a bit more.
I wanted to see how it performs in a harsh environment.
So I brought the camera to the harsh winter of Mongolia, where I was shooting at temperatures
of -30 degrees Celsius.
I stayed with the Mongolian horsemen, in their Ger Tents, enjoyed horse meat, mutton, and the freezing temperatures in the steppes..
I have to say the camera handled the situation very well. For a medium format camera, it performs well in low light situations, focusing was good enough, resolution was great ..
As a travel photographer, traveling with the 3 available lenses ( 32-64mm, 63 mm f2.8, 120mm f4) with the GFX does not feel too heavy.
Battery life performed better than expected, though u cannot compare it with a DSLR.
Overall a great experience, and shooting with the camera can be very addictive.
Here is a video of the images taken during the trip.
I was hosted by the horsemen, and portraits in the Ger Tent was with available light.
Camera was freezing cold most of the times, as long as I am not in the Ger tent..
