Fuji Film and the Fuji G617 Revisited

Following up on a thread we started back with Graham Hill and his new Fuji MF camera, which then branched out into a discussion of my 80s Panoramic MF film camera, the Fuji G617.

I've been busy putting it, and rolls of Fuji Velvia and Provia through it's paces, so wanted to post some of the results back here for those amongst us who still like 'real film'

So, all of these are Velvia 50 except the North Park shot, which is Provia 400 - All scans on the Epson V700 with Betterscanning film carrier with ANR glass inserts.

G617 in action - locking shutter release to trigger the shutter on the lens

6x17 cm Fuji transparencies to give you an idea of scale

Mission Bay Twilight

Coronado Bridge after sundown - 8 minute Exposure

Full Moon Setting Over Oceanside Pier

South to Carlsbad (Vertical Pano Format)

Gateway to the Ocean - La Jolla CA

Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Breakwater - Children's Pool, La Jolla CA

North Park - San Diego

City Of Angels - Looking South on Highway 110 toward downtown LA

So while I love my X Series, I also have space in my heart for old school Fuji and film.
