Re: Moving from 35mm to 120

I got a chuckle when I saw your mention of the Fuji. That was the camera that brought me back to film, at least conceptually.

I bought the second generation, in great shape except needing the light seals redone, which I did. My close distance vision isn’t what it used to be and I had a heck of a time focusing with that rangefinder.

The other thing I kept bumping up against was the slow 5.6 lens. I kept finding that to get a high enough shutter speed, I needed to use 400 speed film, and then it was too fast for certain sunny conditions with the limit of 1/500. Overall it wasn’t a good fit for me.

I still love that those exist, and am glad to hear that you are enjoying yours.
