Fujifilm

Fujifilm is the worlds largest photographic and imaging company. It began in 1934 and their first product was movie film. The current product range is extensive, to say the least. In recent years I have used Fuji film exclusively for film photography. In particular I am very fond of their reversal slide film. Velvia 50, Velvia 100, Velvia 100F, Provia 100F, and Trebi 100 are my favorites. Their camera lineup is made up mostly of point and shoot digital cameras but they are deeply appreciated by many photographers for their commitment to film photography. They are one of the few major manufacturers that continues to not only sell film cameras but also develop new film cameras. They have 2 or 3 lines of 35mm rangefinders, and the Klasse is at the top. They also have the absolutely beautiful GF670, a medium format folder style rangefinder that can take either 6×7 or 6×6 photos and the GF670W which is similar but with a wide angle lens. There are also several discontinued medium format film cameras from Fuji, including the very unique GX680, a medium format camera that thinks it’s a large format, and several other rangefinders that go from 645 all the way to 6×9. Check out their website for more info.

I previously owned the Klasse but sold it when raising funds for the purchase of the GF670. I also sold the GS645 to help finance the New Mamiya 6.
