    Nice! I have the fixed GW690 - I definitely need to shoot it more. Looking forward to seeing the results of your first roll through this.

    I am thinking of buying this camera, any thoughts on it? Your pictures look so lovely.

    I enjoy it very much. South of the 5X4 large format photography, the 6X9 negatives from Fujica are the largest in medium format. Its only limitation is the lack of metering, but I am using a metering app for my android and that works well. Still, it forces you to slow down and think, rather than "shoot now, ask questions later" approach.

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I am getting more and more attracted to slower photography, I find I enjoy it much better. Tomorrow I plan on using a light meter app for my Lubitel toy camera, will see it goes.

    Sunny 16 is pretty useful too if you don't want to rely on the light meter.

    Those are beautiful images. I came very close to buying a Fuji GW680, but didn't really want a camera that large, so selected a GS645S instead.
