THE FUJI GF670. My review of this cool camera will be up by this weekend but until then I wanted to share a couple of samples that came back today in my first roll. I shot a total of four rolls in the GF670 so far and the first roll was a test roll to make sure focus was good, and also so I could see how the cameras meter worked (wether it sucked or was decent). I had a total of 12 shots on this first roll and out of 12 shots, all 12 came out great in regards to exposure and focus! The camera is working well. Tomorrow I get my other three rolls back and I think I will have some cool shots as I did some street stuff, and yes, this camera was easy to shoot street with. Almost as easy as a Leica 🙂
As most of you know, the Fuji GF670 is a medium format FILM camera and the negatives it gives you are big and fat. Much bigger than a 35mm negative. This will give you better tones, smoother grain and that look many of use refer to as “That Medium Format Look”! Sure you can buy a digital MF camera but be prepared to pay. This brand new Fuji model goes for about $1900, and IMO that is not so bad for a compact medium format camera.
Anyway, I am not going to ramble on here as the full review will be up soon with MANY more shots, a video showing the details of the camera including loading and unloading, and a few more shots of the camera itself. I can say right now that this is one fun and easy to use camera and so far I am really enjoying it. It has been my constant companion for the past few days and right now I have my 5th roll, a roll of Tri-X, inside the camera. The samples below were shot wide open at f3.5 at about 1/30s with Ilford FP4. Also, these are scans from my local lab, not by me. Also, B&H still has this one in stock 🙂
