Italy is getting closer in my sights so I needed to figure out exactly which film camera to take on our anniversery vacation. You know the trip that's supposed to be a second honeymoon. Our 40th that is. I'm nearly a hundred and fifty now so the 8x10 view camera is out. I finally decided to take the advice of a very smart friend, Mark Barendt, who suggested some time back that the GA645Zi would be a great camera for travel. Well Mark it arrived from Japan today. This is a work of art. I just can't find a fault. Mine is as close to new as one can get. Not one small scratch on it. The camera shop listed it as mint. That's a common word thrown out there so I had my fingers crossed. Fuji runs a couple of hundred test fires on its cameras so who ever had this one must have shot some film in the shop because it has had a few dozen rolls run through it. There is a camera, case, lens cap, lens hood, neck strap. It did take some time to enter the data in but all is now intuitive. The standard orientation is portrait do the camera is turned for landscape. I'm going to love this travel camera. Oh, it has a flash and is either all automatic, manual, or aperture and the autofocus zoom lens can be set to manual too. It also reads and sets Fujifilm rolls. Let's see, Fujicolor? I haven't shot color film in ages! $600.00 US. Curt Thanks Mark for putting that bug in my ear!
