Fujifilm GFX

Practical Usage Issues (Card Slots, Battery Slot)

These issues existed at the time of review in March 2017 using the GFX-50R. Some issues might have been improved in firmware and/or with subsequent models. See 2020.06.30 firmware update notes and GFX100 firmware update all versions.

Super excited by this camera and it ticks all of the boxes so far for me: but I just noticed that maddeningly the battery door is on the left side of the camera.

Sorry not a good placement in the case of using an L bracket. I loathe idea of using a tripod without an L bracket and can’t understand anyone that doesn’t use one. So in the middle of a bracketed shot, or multiple exposures for a composite (done regularly for my architecture/interior work where one shot can involve quite a lot of time in setup and waiting between shots — for people to come into frame etc.) and the battery goes flat, there will be no way to change batteries without moving the camera position unless someone releases an L bracket that is offset from the head somehow, and that would be quite cumbersome.
