    Ari, she probably just bought Andre the camera so he wouldn't enter the wife-carrying contest again this year. He'd be on the sidelines trying out his new camera.

    I have one of these too. Bought I really bad condition one from KEH a while ago. It looks like a piece of junk but works perfectly. I love the simplicity of it. Aperture and shutter speed on the barrel of the lens and, eh, that's about it. I find it too big and unwieldy for me to use hand-held though, especially since there is no meter. The lens is brilliant obviously ...

    My only problem with it though is the 6x9 format. I think the 2:3 ratio just looks weird so I always end up cropping to a more 3:4 like ratio. I would much prefer if it was 6x8 and then you would squeeze an extra negative onto the roll. Small complaint though .. I still really enjoy using mine.

    The GW690 (I) does not have a B setting, only T

    If you're talking about the model I own (Fujica GW690), then you're completely wrong, there's a B setting and no T one at all.

    There must have been two versions of the model one as mine only has T.

    I couldn't post it here as I can't figure out how to do it. I have emailed you a picture André.

    Ok, after some research, it seems my model as a Copal type shutter and yours have the rather odd Seiko #0 with the T setting.


    Thanks for the pic ,Norman!


    Cheers

    [QUOTE=2F/2F;704225]"I wanted to sell my Rolleiflex to finance the new purchase, but she veto the intention, I don't know why, she loves the freaking camera but never used it, I don't get it!"

    It's because Rolleis are sexy.

    You have to listen to her and keep it.[/QU

    Too true,?Fujis are wonderful tools but functionality is there main atribute.

    Show her some of the work of Fay Godwin.

    Hassel/Rolei user..Girlie cameras if you will lol
