Fujifilm GFX 50S and Instax Square SQ10 Elected “Japanese Historical Cameras” by the Japanese Camera Museum


Fujifilm Historical Cameras

In 1969, the Japanese Camera Museum started to select some cameras as “Japanese Historical Cameras” and to preserve them for the future in their museum.

Cameras which are considered significant in some regard are selected by the Historical Camera Committee, which is composed of unbiased experts and specialists in the field.”

This year (2017) the Japanese Camera Museum selected the Fujifilm GFX 50S and Instax Square SQ10 as their “historical camera“. These two cameras will now be displayed permanently at their museum.

Full list of elected cameras in 2017 here:

In 2014, the X-T1 and X100T were elected “historical cameras“. In 2016 the X-T2 was declared historical. List of winners in previous years here.

While I’m obviously happy for this recognition and I consider especially the Fujifilm GFX 50S definitely worth to be considered “historical” (it is a potential game changer for the industry), I honestly think that we should wait years (decades?) before anyone can declare any camera really “historical“.
