hexar af photos w/ Reala 100 film
I realize the hexar af isn't technically a RF, but here are some photos taken over the weekend with Fuji Reala 100 film.
that is a special camera.nice shots.
which model do you have..will you keep it and what scanner did you use .

I miss my hexar
I have 2, both are the black with silent and extended modes working, not sure if they came that way from factory, or were adjusted later, as I bought them both used. No date backs, but would be interesting to someday get one of those for family snaps.
I didn't use a scanner for these, they were just JPGs off the CD-ROM from Costco, where they use a Noritsu/QSS and usually do a good job at scanning, but always great to have the negatives so I can go back and re-scan special frames.

Hexar AF my current camera of choice...
Pretty late reply but I wanted to post some comments and photos from the Konica Hexar AF. I had been shooting with Nikon D50 but instead of upgrading to a new model, I bought film cameras. I had been experimenting with Oly 35RC, Konica TC, and Konica S3 and I certainly hadn't been looking for an automatic film camera.
Recently I was on work in Groningen, Netherlands and spotted a Konica Hexar AF for sale in Sipkers camera shop, the Classic model. I bought it, partly because I didn't have a camera with me and wanted to spend a couple of hours that weekend shooting film. And I loved it. I like the looks, the feel (which came as a surprise - it is bit delicate and dainty), and the lens is superb. It is quick to focus, accurate, and so silent. Brilliant.
I have to use it more, I've only run 3 films through it, but right now I'm shooting ilford b&w film in London and hope to go through many rolls in the next few weeks.

Next time I go to India, I'll carry this one with me (although I'm worried it won't survive) along with a digital body...

I also own two Hexar AF's. One is black with stealth mode and one is silver without stealth. Both are great for street photography. They are quirky cameras -- you can't get too too close without the EEE error popping up and on occasion the shutter button decides it doesn't want to take the picture. Other than that I love these cameras.
