Unusual sight!

We were having our lunch in the refectory in Lincoln cathedral, when this couple came and sat down at a nearby table. When he went to order, I saw an unusual sight on the table:

I couldn't resist a shot! He had a beautiful Rolleiflex, plus a large folder. She had what looked like an Oly Pen or something similar. When he returned, I went over and had a chat. The folder is brand new - he said - made by Fuji! - and showed me. Quite a camera. It's a Fuji GF670; does 6x6 and 6x9 on 120 film. It's on Amazon:
Fujifilm GF670 Professional Medium Format Folding: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo Fujifilm GF670 Professional Medium Format Folding: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo



So film isn't dead by any means. And I do wish I'd kept my Rollei sometimes.....

Thanks for looking.

Film is far from dead and many users are under 30.

Re: Unusual sight!

The GF670 seems a bit of a beast for a folder.
My humble folder weighs just over half as much (slightly smaller in all dimensions & little more than half as thick when packed up), is more pocketable yet has a larger film area (mines 6x9 the Fuji is switchable between 6x6 & 6x7). I think mine at 1 was probably quite a bit cheaper too!

Mind you my old Billy record is fully manual with only 3 shutter speeds, which is proabably somewhat limited compared to the fuji. I prefer the looks of mine though and given the amount of use it's getting that rather more important than how well it works
