    Birthday Present (GF670)

    Well actually the cash I received from the inlaws on my 50th birthday was just one part of the equation. I started looking through my stuff, wondering what I could sell. In the end I sold the RB Pro SD, the Bessa-R and the Klasse along with a few other odds and ends. But combined with my birthday money it was enough to purchase one of my dream cameras, the Fuji GF670! And actually there was even enough left over to cover last month's purchase of the Fuji GS645! These two folders make a lovely pair and after a quick three rolls with the GF670 I am extremely impressed. This camera just plain works!

    It is a fantastic camera, the best new camera release for a long time in my opinion.

    Good for you. I also used my savings to buy mine and had no regrets at all.

    Look for the hood and some ND filter in 40.5 mm now

    That's a scope with an adapter on a digital camera. Digiscoping is pretty popular among the bird crowd. As long as you aren't trying to get inflight shots.

    Thanks Neto. I already have the hood but no filters yet.

    I'm going to buy me one, eventually. Right now I'm busy still with ultralight/superlight replacement of all my backpacking/trekking gear. Everything's so expensive! And I have a GA645 I'm still breaking in. I love the optics, which is the same lens design as yours by the way, except for one thing. I don't like the bokeh on these lenses fully open. I think it has to be stopped down to f8 before it starts looking real interesting to me and my taste. Other than that, the optics are razor sharp and very nice gradation. I think it's the coating.. It's just simply superb.

    Did you buy yours for 6x6 or 6x7 primarily?

    I think I would wind up shooting 6x7 but honestly if you're talking about 8x10 paper or 16x20.. 6x7 negative is an oddball format.
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).
