It was announced for today, but the brand new retro-styled Fuji XF1 is temporarily out of stock at Amazon. The price is $500 with FREE shipping. As we already showed in a previous post, take a look at TheCameraStoreTV hands-on review. It comes with a click-in charger so you don’t need an external chord, as you can see on the Fuji Xf1 unboxing video.
Our reader Jonathan sent us the link to a refurbished deal on cameras we don’t talk about very often.
The first deal is the two refurbished Fujifilm GF670 Rangefinder Folding Film Camera (Click here). This is a superb medium format camera and it makes me a bit proud to know that Fuji is still investing on developing film cameras. Not because I am a nostalgic men but because I I am convinced that medium format film has a “different” flair and quality that is yet unmatched by digital cameras. Just try to shot a B&W 120 roll with that camera and you will understand what I mean!
The second deal is related to the last Fuji DSLR camera, the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro. You can find two refurbished cameras, one at Photographicstuff (Click here) and one at Supersmartelectronics (Click here). The camera has been announced back in 2006 and a lot of time passed until Fuji released another system camera, the X PRo 1.
But it’s undeniable now that Fuji’s future is the X mirrorless system and maybe even a new FF X system. There is no way back to DSLR and I don’t know how long they will make Film Cameras too.

You would think reviewers are cold blood people focused on finding out all the quirks of the tested camera. But our reader Arjantavari managed to do find a new way to test cameras and warned me and you that “The only thing is, I’m a bit drunk. And I’ve been drinking for about 12 hours“. The video can be seen her eon top! Thanks Arjantavari for sharing your story ;)
