    Karl's right. It bothered me a bit st first, but the workaround is ni problem. If it a really long expisure, just advance the fim winding lever.
    Please stop feeding the trolls.

    On the Fuji pressing the shutter release on T only locks the shutter open. To get the shutter to close you either have to change the shutter speed or wind on (in most cases it would be advisable to have something covering the lens before touching the camera, of course.)

    Okay, I wasn't sure if this convoluted procedure is how Fuji expected you to do long exposures on this thing.

    Does anyone know of a similar camera that is not so big? Other 645 rangefinders all use batteries. I guess if the GW690 is too big I could jump to a TLR.

    The folding Zeiss Ikonta cameras are quite good, but no wide angle lenses.

    I was just notified of this old thread.

    Still shooting my G690BL somewhat (getting more into medium format digital right now).

    Here are a few shots taken with some Ektar 100.

    I'm a big fan of the "Texas Leica" as well. I've been experimenting with the new Ilford Ortho film in mine.

    Certainly an appropriate camera for someone named Austin. I've got the 68 version and really like it.

    Was out today with both my Texas Leica and aP67 w/165 Tele. Nice casual combination in a large shoulder bag. Fast changing light and unpredictable wind, showers. Got out ahead of the big storm due tomorrow.
