Last night, a few members of our NYC staff attended a Fujifilm event–and there, we got a special exclusive inside scoop on the Fujifilm GF670. No, this isn’t the brand new digital camera, but instead the folding rangefinder 6×7 format camera they discontinued a while back.
Word on the street is that the American warehouse found a number of them, brand new, tucked away. B&H Photo’s website says they’re due January 27th 2017. You can most likely pre-order one here, but I will remind everyone that B&H Photo is also in the middle of a big lawsuit you may want to be paying attention to. If you’re a local in NY, you’ll know that a number of photographers have been holding them to it until this is all cleared.
As for other retailers: at the moment of publishing this post it doesn’t seem like anyone else has them listed. But I’ll happily update once that happens.
Of course you could also always just go look for the Fujifilm GF670 on eBay. You’re surely going to find it cheaper there.
For the uninitiated, the Fujifilm GF670 is a folding collapsible rangefinder camera with bellows and all. It takes 120 film and can shoot in 6×7 or 6×6 format.
They’re all mechanical, so you’ll need a separate light meter. But that’s also pretty much the case with almost every 6×7 camera. They’re solidly built, and you can now snag one brand new.
Correction: these cameras have light meters built in.
