Fuji GW690III Main Party Camera

This is a Fuji GW690III medium format camera. Sharp lens, huge rectangular negative on 120 or 220 roll film. Add a small flash and it becomes... Main Party Camera!! Spent too much money on it, but checking the internet, I got a bargain. Anyway, camera: Ricoh Caplio 500G industrial camera.

    I have one...this thing is fricking HUUUUUGE. You need a light meter with it but the rangefinder is great and the images are absolutely superb. I only get 7 images out of mine though rather than 8...what's up with that?

    @clickiemcpete Sometimes the counting gear might be off or the film maker put the start arrow in wrong place (we're talking to you, LSI). I got mine at a tool and equipment auction at a Bonner Rents for US$300 even. I thought I paid too much until I saw what they go for on the Internet. Mine has a repair with fibreglass, bondo, and black paint on the top cover, but works perfectly.

    I just bought an Fuji 690II yesterday from Japan. Looked good with low frame counter so I am hoping it works good too. I bought a GSW645 Fuji some time ago and love it too.
