Fuji 670 – Most Underrated Medium Format?







Fuji GF670 Camera

Is Fuji GF670 Camera the most underrated medium format film camera in the world? Well, it could be. Taking both 6×6 and 6×7 images from same camera, a lens rivaling a Zeiss in sharpness, ease of transporting with it’s folding mechanism, coupled viewfinder,…and B&H still sells it! (although order only) Holy cow! I guess film is NOT dead, after all. I have to admit, I’ve never used this camera, but friends who have one cannot stop raving. And the pics find this zeal well founded. Downside? Fixed lens.  Gotta love 80mm. But I don’t hear X100 guys complaining. Available in both black and chrome.

It has an ISO range of 25 to 3200 which is set manually on a dial at the top of the camera. The GF670 has a built-in EBC Fujinon 80mm f/3.5 Fujinon lens, 35mm equivalent to 40mm in 6 × 7cm format and 44mm in 6 × 6cm format. The lens folds fully into the camera so it is protected when not in use while at the same time providing convenient portability. As with many cameras with a similar design, the lens must be set to infinity before folding it closed, to avoid damage.
