Daily ‘Fuji-Fix’ – the Fujipet gets some film

The Fujipet gets some much needed Neopan 100 Acros

The 1959 Pet is still going strong. It’s one of the smallest and lightest medium format cameras around – just slightly larger than the 120 roll film that it uses!

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to visit our online store at http://www.ccstudio2380.com – we’re running a big sale on all of our cameras from now through the end of the month.

Daily ‘Fuji-Fix’ – the Fujica GW690… the Beast from the East

The Fujica GW690 Professional 6×9 120/220 roll film camera – 1970s tech never looked so good!

This beast will eat through film like it’s candy! 8 exposures from a roll of film but oh how pretty the pics are!

Thanks for stopping by! A big thanks to the City of Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida for hardly changing since 1890!

Fujica GW690 from 1978

We acquired this beast early this year and fell in love with its capabilities. The only problem with it is that you only get 8 6x9cm images on a roll of 120 film. Talk about planning your shot!

Last camera to carry the Fujica name.

One of our favorite images from the first roll – far from perfect – the focus is a tad off but we love the shallow depth of field and the amazing tonal range of the Neopan Acros.

The 6x9cm format is, in our opinion, nearly perfect for big time enlargements. This image by the way, is not cropped and hasn’t received post production.

If you want to go big in medium format, the Fujica GW690 and the Fuji GW690II and III are worth a look.
