I recently managed to get one of my dream cameras into my collection the awesome Fuji GW690iii.
I have been looking for ages at a bit of a step up from my 6×6 and 6×4.5 medium format cameras with the possible idea of eventually getting into large format further down the line.
A good twitter friend gave me a stunning deal where by we swapped … I gave him my Fuji X-T10 and in return I got the Fuji and also a Samyang 8mm f2.8 fish-eye for my X-T20 …… suffice to say I am so sure I have had the best end of the deal.
Apart from the battle scars to the built in hood the camera was in excellent condition and I was excited to get out and use it.
I shot the 2 rolls over 2 weekends … the 1st was at my local beach of Porthcawl and the 2nd was up in the forestry here in the garw valley.
The camera was a dream to use even though it is big compared to my Leica rangefinder it handles very well and as the body is made up of quite a bit of plastic (very solid plastic mind) the weight is not too bothersome.
I even manged to hand hold down to 1/30th on 2 of the forest shots.
Anyway here are all 15 images ….. ( I managed to leave the lens cap on for one frame in the Reala set …. idiot)
First Fuji Reala …
Second Kodak Ektar …
The size of 6×9 negs is something to behold … it’s a bit strange just seeing 8 frames when you get it out of the tank and the level of detail you get even when scanning on my getting old Epson v500 is lovely.
I am going to get my next roll lab processed and scanned just to hopefully see just how good this lovely camera is.
Anyway thanks for looking ….
