THE FUJI G617 FILM CAMERA
This is one of only two medium format cameras that I’ve kept from the film days. The other is a Hasselblad 500C. They both remain relevant for making large prints. Wth the roll film tha’s still available today.
The Fuji G617 is a large yet lightweight photographic machine that produces amazing panoramic images captured at 6cm x 17cm in size. That’s plenty big to print huge murals if you want. All manual, no light meter. Make sure you get the special ND filter.
I used this camera quite a bit back in the ’90s shooting Fujichrome 120 and 220 slide film worldwide for stock. 220 is now discontinued, but you can still get a whopping 4 images out of a single roll of 120 film today.
Good review here.
