    Yes, the pricing of the GF670W is absolutely insane. Here in China you can buy one, easily as it sits on the shelf month after month, for $3700. It doesnt even look that expensive, with the lens clearly just bolted onto the GF670 body. What is up with that price?

    high demand, high price.
    Low volume, high price.
    (i think thats how it goes)

    not selling well imo is down to the fact that there are a lot cheaper alternatives around rather than that there is any lack of demand for the camera.

    all i am sure about is that I definately want one. No way to afford one though.

    When they discontinued Neopan SS, that was the final straw for me. I still buy their small paper and print developer sometimes (they're cheap over here) but nothing else.

    Personally I consider the company name ironic.
    Those who know, shoot film

    I'm just glad I have 32 rolls of Neopan 400/120 in my freezer.

    I remember when Fujifilm was simply Fuji (Fuji Photo or what). 135 cameras were called Fujica. MF cameras were called Fuji. Films were called Fujifilm.

    It was probably the success of Velvia and the new "value" of the Fujifilm brand in the photographic milieu which suggested to rebrand the entire firm Fujifilm.

    Fujifilm recently launched a new compact 35mm for the Japanese market, the Natura Classica, which is supposed to be used especially with a new film, Fujifilm Natura 1600. This leads me to believe that Fujifilm still works on film and how to enhance film sales.

    It sounds like if I ever travel to Japan I should buy a lot of Fuji film while I'm there.

    Fujifilm also sells a new medium format camera. Actually two, the GF670 and GF670W. Fujifilm is still carrying the torch for film, something Kodak should have been doing years ago instead of dreaming of a world with Kodak printers.

    But if I correctly understand what some are saying, there are different film formulations sold in Japan that are not available in other countries.
