New Fuji wide angle medium format camera the GF670W. Will there be a Bessa III WIDE?

Well we are now getting the 2010 Photokina releases coming out. Though this one is a little unexpected I must admit. A wide angle 667 camera from Fuji.  It begs the question will we see a Voigtlander 667 wide shortly.

Looks like we have a fixie here with a 55mm lens.

This is very interesting as I really thought the Bessa III aka Fuji GF670 would be the last of the great film cameras to be made at least in Medium format.

The Bessa III has been a huge success with  Cosina now almost sold out. Of course many where not interested in the Bessa III with a standard focal length lens, so maybe this is the logical next step. Either way Fuji nor Cosina are not in the habit of producing products that do not sell. No price has been set.

Well guess what…

  1. I think the wider angle lens will be of interest to street shooters who want to use zone focusing, and also where an SLR is too cumbersome.

  2. This new wave of medium format cameras is just so fantastic… can’t wait to play with them… It is so fantastic that these cameras inspire the creativity of so many photographs, and help to keep film alive and thriving in the modern world.

    Thanks Scott

  3. Scott,
    Here’s a link to a 3/4 view of the “Bessa-ised” Gf670W (in case you hadn’t stumbled across it).
