Wish List Camera – Fuji Fotorama

Our camera wish list is quite extensive – over the years you get to see a bunch of cameras and of course, if you’re an ardent photographer and camera collector, they’ll be some cameras you desire.

We have no reason to want this Fuji other than it’s just so cool!

First time we’ve seen the original box and a new unused FP-1.

The Fotorama (crazy cool name) is a rather large format instant film camera made by Fuji Photo Film Company. Released June 1987 –

Beautiful set that was available for sale recently.

Just a super cool looking big gun from Fuji!

The Fuji FP-1 Pro features a Fujinon 105mm, f/ 5.6 lens – 4 elements in 5 groups and a shutter that has B, 1 to 1/500 second. It uses FP-100 film and makes an image that is 89 x 118mm. The camera weighs 1,280g and sold for ¥ 69,800

The camera depicted here in this post is not ours. We’ve curated a group of images of beautiful cameras over the years. This nice set went for $1,000.00 – which in our humble opinion, was very fair given how few new in box cameras still exist.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. That is one really cool looking camera. I still have a pack of Fuji FP-100c, and a pack of FP-3000b in my fridge. Both are excellent peel-apart films and it’s sad that fuji stopped producing them. I never knew that Fuji had made an instant camera that took that film.

    1. I never got to use one of the big Fujifilm instant cameras – they were popular with pros for making ID photos and what not but from what I understand, the FP-1 and the FP-100 films made for a great combination. Pros used the FP-1 to test the lighting in their studios too. I was surprised when Fuji made that announcement especially since they make so many different Instax films now. Maybe their plate was too full.
