    FujiFilm to introduce new MF prototype.

    Curious.

    It'll be interesting to see exactly what this is. You've gotta wonder what Fuji are up to, given that everyone knows film is dead....

    Interesting as you say. Maybe it records digital images onto film for better keeping qualities?

    Interesting indeed. Fuji has made many great cameras in the past.

    Yes that is interesting.

    They say portable MF camera, unless it is stuck to a tripod or computer, I would have thought any camera is portable, as long as you can carry it.

    Perhaps they are going to release another rangefinder. I had one of their 645 folders last century, great camera, superb optics.

    As far as I know Fuji is backing this site;

    http://choose-film.com/

    Which seems to show that Fuji is a firm supporter of film photography.

    with a 45mm chip.

    I don’t know this website, or if this is a totally unfounded rumour, but for the time being I choose to believe that the camera will take film. It feels better that way.

    Errr Ah, hope you guys are just kidding about the d*g*t*l stuff here. The article states that it is a film camera.

    Fuji makes the cameras marketed as the Hasselblad "H" series, the H1, H2 & H3. The first two of these have roll film backs available for them. These cameras have also been sold under the Fuji brand in Japan. It is not odd to think that Fuji may be taking some of the same building blocks currently used for the Hasselblad H3 and making it available under the Fuji name as a film camera. At one time Fuji made a rather largish 6x7 camera with built-in bellows, very much like the concept of the Mamiya RB67. Of course there could be the possibility of a new medium-format rangefinder, as Fuji has made plenty of these also.

    Fuji actually made a 6x8, not 6x7.

    Then they had all of those 645 range finders.
