    Anybody have any experience with fitting the Fuji Bracket GA on a 645ZI?

    So, just the vanilla 645? How about the "i" model?

    I believe the only difference between the GA645 and the GA645i is the i can read Fuji film bar codes and it has a second shutter button. If the bottom plate is the same then the GA bracket should fit. I do not have the i so I cannot tell you for sure.

    I do have a GA645 and a GA645zi and a GA bracket and can tell you the GA bracket does not fit the GA645zi.

    Thanks, Rich. Hoping to pick up a second GA, and wanted to verify which accessories will pull double-duty. Might pass over the ZI because of this. Thanks!

    Oh. I have a GA645. What is this bracket you speak of? Flash bracket?

    It's a base plate and handle mount for the Strobe GA. Not really common, but a good solution or getting the flash up and away from the lens.
