FUJIFILM Announces the GF670W Professional Medium-format Wide-angle Camera

PHOTOKINA 2010, COLOGNE, GERMANY, September 21, 2010 — FUJIFILM Corporation is pleased to announce the development of a high quality and high efficiency film camera, the GF670W Professional medium-format wide-angle camera as a reference exhibit at Photokina 2010.

Last winter, Fujifilm launched the GF670 Professional equipped with the Fujinon EBC 80mm lens, and the success of this camera led to numerous requests for the production of a series of medium-format wide-angle cameras. The development of the GF670W Professional is Fujifilm’s response to these requests and the latest addition to its lineup of medium-format wide-angle cameras.

Ideal for professional or high-end amateur landscape photographers, the GF670W Professional is a wide-angle camera equipped with the Fujinon EBC 55mm lens that features 6 × 6 and 6 × 7 dual-format shooting for use with 120 and 220 roll film. With its 55mm lens, coupled rangefinder, aperture-priority AE and manual exposure modes, the GF670W Professional produces sharp high quality and wide-angle images. The camera is particularly suited to capturing images of landscapes and the natural environment, and despite being a medium-format wide-angle camera, the GF670W Professional is surprisingly compact perfect for a trip to the great outdoors.

  2. I wonder if they are using the same core/body as the Voigtlander Bessa III?

    Either way they both look fantastic.
