A Monster of Medium Format

Posted by Dylan Kim on

As you all can probably tell from this blog, I have pretty severe GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) but I totally embrace it. I was practically drooling over my laptop when looking at this camera. The most common medium format cameras are typically 6x6.45, 6x6 and 6x7. Each ratio is different and requires a different vision for each. This camera I have dubbed a monster of medium format (cue Jaws theme song). The FujiGX617.



This behemoth of a camera takes photos in a panoramic 6x17 format. You can check out some photos on Flickr to see a large selection. This camera weighs about 4 pounds and will run you about $2000 off of It’s interesting to see a camera that shoots specifically in panoramic shots. When most of us think of panoramas we either think about stitching to them together in Photoshop or using our iPhones to take a sweeping panorama. I can only imagine the images this camera creates loaded up with Velvia 50. If anyone has any experience using a Fuji GX617, I’d love to hear about it! Please leave a comment below! I have attached several beautiful photos I found taken on a Fuji GX617.
