    FS (EU): Fuji GW690III (6x9 - 90mm/f3.5)

    I am selling my Fuji GW690III. It is one of the best medium format cameras I ever used, and it has served me well, but I haven't been shooting 6x9 lately... so it needs to find a new home.

    The camera is in perfect working order and has light usage marks (see attached pictures). The lens and the shutter are immaculate. The focusing ring is a bit stiff - I don't know if this is normal or not, but I do know that with such a shallow DoF I prefer it this way. The number of the bottom shows 292, so there's plenty of films to get through this camera until it hits the 500 mark.

    Here are some of the photos I have taken with this camera: https://www.flickr.com/search?user_i...nce&text=gw690

    The camera is located in Athens, Greece, so a European Union transaction would be preferable. Price is 380€ plus 20€ tracked and insured postage to Europe - Paypal payment.

    Something must be wrong with flickr. Thanks for the heads-up.

    A very fair price for this camera (which generally go for 400 - 700€ on eBay in Germany).

    I already have one of these cameras and I can definitely state that they are great cameras and the lens is superb.

    I am very surprised that you have had no interest.

    The 6 x 9 format is ideal for people moving up from 35mm as it has the same ratio and is the most economical size for standard paper sizes.

    Bests of luck with selling what is a great bit of kit.

    Just as David said, a great price for a very nice camera (there's the plus of seeing the results this very unit does).
    Too bad I pulled the trigger for a one on the bay, from japan, last week; Otherwise I'd jumped for this one.

    Thank you for that. I was thinking the same for this price, although I have a 6x9 camera (not this type though). But if you'll take it, I don't have to.
    And if you don't (for some reason) let me know. Would be nice to try one of these cameras. It should be a lot less heavy and clunky than my Mamiya RB67.
