Fujifilm has created a new retro styled rangefinder camera which will be available next month with prices starting at around $1,800. The Fujifilm GF670 Rangefinder Folding Camera uses 120 & 220 Roll Film and is equipped with a Fujinon EBC 80mm f/3.5 Lens and a coupled rangefinder.
The shutter takes the form of an Electronic Belief and offers a shutter speed range from 1/500 sec to 4 sec
and offers bulb with flash synchronisation at all speeds.
The Fujifilm GF670 Rangefinder Folding Camera is a dual-medium format professional camera. It will shoot 6 × 6cm or 6 × 7cm formats, which is selectable via a simple switch (the format cannot be switched mid-roll). The GF670 has an aperture priority automatic exposure mode in addition to its fully manual capabilities. This camera features center-weighted metering and an electronic leaf shutter with speeds ranging from 1/500th to 4 seconds. It also has a Bulb setting and will synch with your flash at any shutter speed.
It has an ISO range of 25 to 3200 which is set manually on a dial at the top of the camera. The GF670 has a built-in EBC Fujinon 80mm f/3.5 Fujinon lens, 35mm equivalent to 40mm in 6 × 7cm format and 44mm in 6 × 6cm format. The lens folds fully into the camera so it is protected when not in use while at the same time providing convenient portability. As with many cameras with a similar design, the lens must be set to infinity before folding it closed, to avoid damage.
It accepts both 120 or 220 roll film and in the 6 × 7cm format, you’ll get 20 exposures on 220 rolls, and 10 exposures on 120 rolls. In 6 × 6cm format, you get 24 exposures on 220 rolls, and 12 exposures on 120 rolls.
