A simple yes or no to what we have seen today.
While I'm interested in exploring MF I can't say I would buy this camera nor could I say I wouldn't buy it. Just not enough info for a simple yes or no.
But interested to learn more - yes.
As Bruce said, I just don't know enough about it yet. I'd like to try a MF folder but have always been leery of an "eBay special" with unknown conditions of the bellows - so a new one definitely holds appeal.
But price and specs would have to be right.
Ehrm - yes. I would. It looks a lot like an old Zenobia, only 6x7 instead of 4.5x6. So i fear that the temptation could easily become just a little bit too much...
Yes, price dependent. I'm deeply afraid the price won't be in my range, and mildly concerned about the specifications (particularly the 6x7 vs 6x9 size issue).
Looks like a 6x6, but I already have a 6x6 folder, do I need another? Looks nice though.
Engraving on top says 6 x 7.
It's a 6x7 as it states on the camera top plate
A 6x4.5 like my little Zeiss would be fantastic. Or a loooong lens on 6x6 or 6x7.
As it is, it'll be price-dependent. At an attractive price, I might even buy two and keep one at work.
The ability to add a 6x4.5 mask would be a nice tweak that would add some appeal to the camera.
I’m very interested, but any decision I make will have to wait until I actually know anything about the thing.
Normal lenses just don't do it for me. I perfer wide angles.
I'm having severe GAS pains!
Me say yes, wife and wallet will most likely have a different opinion
Looks cool, would have to see the $ tag.
If the price is right, otherwise why not buy a Mamiya 7. I like the idea of it being simple. I would love to have something with a 6x7 neg in a pocketable size, good rangefinder, aperture priority if possible, and no motor winder (quiet and less to break). Sometimes I think having one lens option is better because it saves me from myself in wanting to bring too much gear.
No matter, I am putting some money aside for it.
I would easily pack into my large format bag along side my Chamonix.
No. I have fixed lens Fuji 6x7 and 6x9 rangefinders already. They are great cameras. This one would be a little more compact, but that's about it. It looks like it has a wind knob instead of a lever, and knobs tend to be harder to use. In addition, folders tend to have more alignment issues than fixed lens cameras. In spite of this, it's a good thing if they make this, as it shows that film equipment development isn't dead.
An mf folder, constructed from modern materials with TTL metering and a modern rangefinder? Yes I'd buy it. My only niggle is I'd prefer 6x6. I suppose it would be looking the gift horse in the mouth to hope for a 6x6 mask.
Well, if Fuji wants us to use up even more of their lovely film, then they should bring out a 6x9 version as well
bring me the W I D E
Why would this camera need to cost more than around $800?
Voted no, but not for any other reason than I have bought my last camera for a while today. This is a beauty though Fuji and I hope it sells like hot cakes.
I would need a price to consider before answering. On several levels, this is an attractive camera. On other levels for me personally, I can't see it.
The camera pictured has an 80/3.5 lens. That's kind of a wide normal. That looks pretty good to me.
yes dependent on all sorts of things...
