    Hi all,
    i just acquired a beautiful Fuji GX680 III (thanks, Simon) and i'm very happy of the first results (just two rolls, still wet from development).

    I'm at loss when i try to activate the print function in the film holder.
    The manual is not clear... does anybody knows the exact procedure?
    i was able to set the date and time, but i was unable to activate the actual printing of the data on the border of the roll.

    Thanks in advance,
    Paolo from Italy

    Fantastic! i'll try it as soon as it stops raining... why the manual was so cryptic, i don't know... you are crystal clear!

    THANKS!

    hi dan,
    i did what you said, shoot a roll but still i don't see any data on my negatives.
    the only difference is, i had both the AV data and the date showing on my LCD, non only the AV data; but if i pushed the data/iso button, the time and AV data were showing in the LCD.
    i have a doubt: is that option available if i shoot 6x8 negatives?
    thanks for your help

    CORRECTION! the data are there indeed, but very faint. i'll wait for the negs to dry, and then i'll check better.
