Fujifilm X-T50 Review | Photography Blog


The Fujifilm X-T50 is a new mid-range APS-C sensor mirrorless camera which was first announced in May 2024 and released in June 2024.

It is the successor to the three-year-old X-T30 II model which will continue to be sold in the range for the forseeable future.

The XT50 features exactly the same 40 megapixel X-Trans CMOS 5 HR sensor and X-processor 5 as the flagship X-T5 and X-H2 models, and therefore provides the same image quality and auto-focus performance/features.

The X-T50 can automatically detect animals, birds, cars, bikes, planes and trains thanks to the X-Processor 5’s AI deep learning capabilities.

IBIS is included for the first time on an X-Txx series camera, delivering up to 7 stops of in-body image stabilisation.

There’s also a dedicated Film Simulation dial that replaces the drive mode dial, another first for the X-Txx series, which provides quick access to selected simulations plus three user modes.

Featuring a new rounded design, the X-T50 is bigger and heavier than the previous X-T30 II, but is smaller and lighter than the flagship X-T5.

The XT50 can record 6K/30p 4:2:2 10-bit video internally to its single SD card slot with 13+ stops of dynamic range, but it does offer more limited recording times than the X-T5 – 60 minutes in 4K/30p and 30 minutes in 4K/60p.

Other key features include 8fps burst shooting, 20% better battery life than the previous X-T30 II model, a 2-way tilting LCD screen that sits flush with the body, a pop-up flash, and an ultra-fast electronic shutter that is capable of exposures up to 1/180000sec.

The Fujifilm X-T50 is is available in three different colours – Black, Silver and Charcoal Silver – priced at £1299 / $1399 / €1499 body only, £1399 / $1499 / €1599 with the 15-45mm kit lens, and £1649 / $1799 / €1899 with the new 16-50mm F2.8-4.8 R LM WR kit lens. The XT50 is manufactured in China.

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 40.2 megapixel Fine JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 18Mb.

The Fujifilm X-T50 produced images of outstanding quality. It records noise-free JPEG images from ISO 64 up to ISO 3200, with a little noise at ISO 6400 and more visible noise at the faster settings of ISO 12800 and 25600 (ISO 51200 is best avoided), an amazing performance for a camera with a 40 megapixel APS-C sensor.

The Dynamic Range and HDR settings subtly improve detail in the shadows and highlights, while the extensive range of Film Simulation modes hark back to a bygone era, and the Advanced Filters allow you to have a little fun with your images in-camera.

There are 11 full ISO settings available on the Fujifilm X-T50 for JPEGs and RAW files. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting.

The Fujifilm X-T50 has 2 different image quality settings available, with Fine being the highest quality option. Here are some 100% crops which show the quality of the various options, with the file size shown in brackets.

The Fujifilm X-T50 has three dynamic range settings – 100% (on by default), 200%, and 400% – and an Auto setting if you want to let the camera take control.

These settings gradually increase the amount of detail visible in the shadow and highlight areas, with the side-effect of more noise appearing in the image. Note that you can’t actually turn this feature off. All three settings are available from ISO 500 upwards.

The Fujifilm X-T50 has a High Dynamic Range mode with five different settings – AUTO, 200%, 400%, 800%, 800%+. The camera takes three shots with different exposures, changing the shutter speed for each one, and then combining them in-camera.

The Fujifilm X-T50 offers 20 different film simulation modes to help replicate the look of your favourite film stock from the past.

The Fujifilm X-T50 offers 13 different creative filter effects which are found in the Drive menu.

The Fujifilm X-T50’s Multiple Exposure mode combines up to 9 different images together in-camera to create one composite image, with four different ways of combining them – Additive, Average, Bright, Dark.

This is a selection of sample images from the Fujifilm X-T50 camera, which were all taken using the 40.2 megapixel Fine JPEG setting. The thumbnails below link to the full-sized versions, which have not been altered in any way.

The Fujifilm X-T50 enables users to capture RAW and JPEG format files. We’ve provided some Fujifilm RAW (RAF) samples for you to download (thumbnail images shown below are not 100% representative).
