    Yes, I always carry spare batteries. I haven't seen them in the big box places but I haven't looked for them.

    Plus, use the data record thingy, it prints info on the edge of the film as that way you can see which aperture/speed combo is good, that's why I know.
    Hmm. How do you get aperture and shutter speed on the film? I have mine set for date and time, but I must have missed the aperture/film setting.

    Lens Hood And Cap

    Good afternoon. I recently purchased a GA645i as well. Just a couple of rolls so far. One thing I did was put a Nikon hn-3 hood and a 72mm lens cap on it. Seems to be a more secure set-up for me.
    Hoping you continue to have sucess with yours and looking forward to seeing some photos here.

    Press the "DATA" button until you see the aperture/shutter speed appear in the LCD.

    I have a GA645 with the 60mm f4. A fine little (for a medium format rig) camera. I do suffer from the forgetting lens cap issue though.

    Far as caps and hoods go, unless you're really a stickler for brand matching, just match the filter ring size. Mine is 52mm, and while I do have the original Fuji hood, I'm actually using a Nikon lens cap since it's center-pinch and thus easier to use with the hood than the stock side-pinch Fuji cap.

    OK, rangefinder question: What's the light loss for a linear polarizer? I seem to recall it's 1 stop? Metering is not through the lens with this camera.

    That doesn't do it, nor is it in the manual. All I can set are date and time.

    Hmm, that's odd. Data printing is covered on page 19 of the manual as seen here: http://www.cameramanuals.org/fuji_pd...ilm_ga645i.pdf

    Boy, I really missed that. I was reading the instructions for the date and time and I missed that illustration on page 19. I think I have it set now. Thanks and sorry for my confusion!

    OK, got a problem with this camera. I just ran my first roll of 220 through it (Fuji 400H) and when I opened the back it was not tightly spooled on the spindle. Had the roll processed and it is fogged along the edges. The camera back was set for 220 film. Any tips from Fuji rangefinder users?

    When you load the film you need to hold it tight as you first advance on the take-up roll. If not it will spool loose on the roll and you will get some edge fogging. I have had the same problem with other MF cameras when loading 220 film.

    Too bad Fuji discontinued the GA's years ago. I have a GA645 and a GA645i. Razor sharp lenses give virtual reality versus a sharp photograph. Very addicting, I just want to run roll after roll through it if I could afford all that film! Probably the easiest to load medium format I've ever owned. Others are Hasselblad 501cm (a real "hassel" to load), Mamiya twin lens, Voigtlander Bessa III. The total exposure counter and the data imprinting are wonderful. Just bring batteries. They don't last nearly as long as the manual states and the camera goes from showing a full charge to dead without warning. Otherwise, about as close to perfection in any camera I've owned.
