An Impressive Camera: The Fuji GX680

About 21 years ago I got the opportunity to evaluate a Fuji GX680. It seemed to be an interesting option to have a roll film camera with tilt/shift capabilities. Although I really enjoyed taking some pictures with this camera it became clear to me that I could not afford it. Also I learned that its weight (> 2.5 kg for just the body) and size (278 x 187 x 207 mm) created all kinds of practical issues; this was especially inconvenient in a context where my bicycle was my main means of transportation. Today, I still remember the joy of the experience. I also understand completely that it was very good to learn that a Fuji GX680 did not fit in my life.
