The Fujifilm X-T50 is a very welcome addition to the Fujifilm camera range. For a while it looked as if the X-T30 II might have been the last in a line of compact DSLR-style Fujifilms with old-style retro controls, but the X-T50 puts this sub-range back on the map.

For context, the double-digit X-T cameras have always been the more compact and portable smaller siblings of the flagship single-digital X-T range, and that carries through into the current models, so that while the Fujifilm X-T5 is a high-end, high-powered classically designed camera for enthusiasts and professionals, the Fujifilm X-T50 is a smaller, lighter and cheaper alternative for those who want to spend a little less and travel a little lighter.
