Fujifilm GFX

Observations on Image Quality vs Hasselblad, Canon, Nikon

See also Fujifilm GFX 50s Shooting Formats / Aspect Ratios.

This page summarizes my observations and thoughts on the Fujifilm GFX vs Hasselblad X1D vs Canon 5DS vs Nikon D810.

vs Canon 5Ds R

Fujifilm GFX utilizes a 50-megapixel 44 X 33mm sensor (8256 X 6192). The Canon 5DS R utilizes a 36 X 24mm sensor of 8688 X 5792 image pixels.

The Canon 5Ds R in theory has slightly more resolving power on the long axis, and slightly less on the short axis. The differing aspect ratios mean that any comparison would need to crop one camera to the aspect ratio of the other for easy comparison. This implies favoring or disfavoring one camera or the other slightly, depending on how one crops. However, the image quality differences are so obvious that it matters little how one approaches it.
