|Hi there folks,
have somebody met machine like this? Came out from Fujica "G" family if I can mark it like that. This one is special with changing bayonet.
In terms of technical data it is really nice middle format cam with approximatelly 6x9 cm large image size.
For comparision to 23,5x30cm print is not that big. Isn't it? =)
Still trying to use on rangefinder focusing and framing. Finder is situated here on the top left:
Here is the possibility to use sheet film with that and roll/sheet switcher with Japanese letters (really like this part).
Flash hot shoe. There is X-sync contact on the lens itself. Film type switcher from 4 exp. 120 (there were special short films) , 8 exp. 120 and 16 exposures with 220 film. And large winder.
And in the end lens. Every lens from this series have aperture and shutter (leaf shutter Seiko brand) inside. Standard lens is Fujinon 100/3.5 (tessar type). There is Auto exposure type also with mettering and except 65mm, 150mm, 180mm there is special 50/5.6 lens.
Here is F-stop with shutter times and focusing.
Who finished it to the end until here I have good news. Trying to get some Epson flatbed scanner to digitalize my fresh negsfrom this cam. So maybe I post some here to certify how is shooting with that large rangefinder.
Have good light.
Shoot on analog mainly with
then Pentacon6TL for squares
and new to 6x9 RF Fujica
