New gear: Fuji GW690iii

I just acquired a used Fuji GW690iii medium format rangefinder camera from eBay. It makes eight 6cm x 9cm negatives on one roll of 120 format film. It’s pretty fun to use. While a little unwieldy due to the size and weight, it is a simple camera and very quick to use: fixed lens (90mm f/3.5), all mechanical, no exposure meter. I use the Pocket Light Meter app on iPhone. Focusing is fast: a quarter turn covers the whole range, and the rangefinder focus is bright.


And the first roll of film I shot, developed at Indie Photo Lab, in Philadelphia, right near where the pictures were taken.
