Product Details

Product Information
Recapture the look and feel of typical 1970s-era tour group photos with the handling ease of a 35mm camera by using the Fujifilm GW690 medium format film camera. Enjoy the thrill of using film photography to produce amazing images. It’s nicknamed the “Texas Leica” because it looks like an oversize 35mm camera and has a top-quality lens. This was the first camera with ergonomically designed convex grips molded into the body for increased hand comfort. This and the camera’s light weight make it a pleasure to use for hours on end.The excellent Fujinon 90mm f/3.5 EBC lens is permanently attached to the body, and there are no changing lenses with the Fujica GW690. It’s also protected by a sturdy cap. The five EBC lens elements in four groups combine with the UV filter to give you clean and clear photos. The aperture may be stopped down to f32. Photographers have found that the larger apertures provide them with even sharper images. Use 67mm threaded filters with this Fuji. The shutter speed goes up to 1/500 and synchronizes with a flash. There is a cold shoe on top for attaching a flash unit or other accessories. Using a handheld light meter is fun and helpful. These are readily available and easily found with a quick search. The rangefinder eye window is round, not square.This impressive camera measures 7.44 inches wide by 4.68 inches high by 4.84 inches deep, and it weighs 3 pounds. Loading the 6×9 film is a straightforward process as is switching the control between 120 short (four) exposure, 120 regular (eight) exposure, and 220 (sixteen) exposure, with the simple switch on top. The manual advance is convenient and efficient, and the frame counter is clear and easy to read. There are two shutter buttons available.This Fuji was designed for Japanese group shot photographers who worked popular tourist venues where busloads of folks debarked several times per hour. They needed the quality of medium format film but wanted the simplicity of a rangefinder camera. Many of these pros took over 30,000 exposures in a year, so durability and reliability were top priority. The Fuji GW690 was the camera of choice for its resistance and reliability.When you take a photo, you may think the leaf shutter is unusually loud. The sound is actually the winding mechanism that connects to the advance lever, so don’t be alarmed. It’s supposed to be louder than other cameras. On the bottom of the device, you notice a three-digit meter. This increases by one digit every ten times the shutter is activated. The camera’s leaf shutter should be inspected and serviced when the meter reads 500. That’s 5000 snaps. Fuji also suggested having the advance mechanism serviced at the same time.The Fujica GW690 is considered a must-have by serious photographers, not only because of its place in history but because it produces images of the highest quality. This is an excellent classic to add to your collection.
