Scaling back my mountain of Fuji cameras…

I’ve been collecting all sorts of interesting and fun-to-use cameras from the Fuji Photo Film Company for years. From the humble Fujipet 6×6 camera from the late 1950s to the incredible Fujicaflex TLR (their only TLR), to the amazing Fujica GW690 Professional rangefinder, and all of the little Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras of the 2000s. Not to leave out my brief ownership of a really nice Fujica ST701 35mm SLR and all of the Fujifilm Discovery point & shoot cameras and the other equally unique Fuji “Plastic Fantastics” that I still own.

The time has come to start the big sell-off as our plan is to move to a smaller place within the next three to five years and there just won’t be enough room to display everything. S with that said, here is just one of my “new old stock” Fujis – the Fuji K-28 “Construction Camera”.

A truly heavy-duty waterproof, dirtproof 35mm work site point & shoot camera from 1991.
A 4mm thick piece of fixed glass protects the sharp 28mm Fujinon lens.
Everything is sealed against water, dirt, and dust. How cool is that black and yellow striped sticker?
Because these were made to excel on the job site they weren’t typically purchased for a collection but this one obviously was.
It’s never had a roll of film through it in over thirty years!
Super cool, right?

If you’re interested in adding a unique camera to your collection I have this K-28 in my online camera shop at which is hosted by Etsy. It ships nearly worldwide and it’s even on sale at 10% off just in time for Christmas. Thanks for stopping by, Chris.
