Excerpt: I have had my GF670 for 3 1/2 years now and used it mostly with Ilford black and white films. I have used it extensively for travel in Australia, NZ, Mexico and USA/Canada and have had no problems with the camera. The focus is accurate and the viewfinder super bright. The lens performs as a modern, well coated lens should.
Excerpt: I just wanted to add that after 3 years, I still love this camera. I mentioned in my original review that I opted for a 58mm to series 6 adapter that allows me to use my series 6 filters. The official hood takes 40.5 mm filters, same size as the series 6. I also use a vented series 6 hood with the filter adapter and I have no problems with vignetting.
Excerpt: This camera delivers medium format quality that can fit inside a jacket pocket! The whole idea of a 6 x 7 camera that is actually pocketable is just crazy! Yet the other day I was out walking around with this camera folded up inside my jacket pocket. Truly a delightful shooting experience. The viewfinder is THE largest, most clear viewfinder I have ever used. The focus is silky smooth and the rangefinder patch is bright and clear.
Excerpt: I own three medium format cameras, but the GF670 is my only modern one and only rangefinder. Ergonomics are an individual matter, but I find the camera very fast and comfortable to use in landscape and portrait orientation. Getting used to using my thumb to turn the focus wheel took only a few days. For a manual focus medium format camera, the GF670 operates easily and quickly.
Pros: Fun, Great lens, Lighweight, Reliable Operation, Stable Flash Sync
Excerpt: Have been using the camera almost every day for the past two weeks and i am very happy with the purchase. I love how compact it is for a medium format camera, at first i thought the bellows system could become annoying but to be honest hasent even been an issue. Its light weight and very easy to load, also changing from 6x6 and 6x7 is very simple just the flick of a switch inside the camera when changing film, and the set up for shooting 120 to 220 is very easy just have...
Excerpt: I wanted something I could carry day-to-day without having to carry a bag. Also will be using the GF670 along with my Mamiya 7II when I travel. * Compact size and great lens. GF670 allows me to carry a great medium format film camera in my bag so I have it when I need it. * Silent shutter is almost too silent. Great for more candid shooting * Durable build means it will likely last well beyond the life expectancy of most digital cameras.
Pros: 120 And 220 Capable, Accurate Meter, Metal Housings, Multi-format 6x6 6x7, Quick Focusing Viewfinder, Reliable Operation, Silent Shutter

Summary: This is a wonderful modern film camera. It folds down to a very compact size, so that it can go together with your DSLR to trips. It has the convenience of a modern, accurate metering that you can trust. It shoots 6x6 and 6x7, two of the most beautiful formats on the 120 film. The shutter is dead quiet, so you are not intrusive at all, and you can handhold the camera by an extra stop or two.
Excerpt: I shoot 6x6 with Hasselblad cameras but I traveling a lot and many time I just can´t carry 10 or 15 kg of gear with me all the time so I bought Fuji GF670 as a last option to replace my Hassy gear but still maintain a possibility to shoot 6x6 or 6x7. Well, now it is my first choice camera and I carry it with me everywhere. It is impossible not to fall in love with it despite it is a bit bulky but still much smaller then my Hassy gear.
Pros: Feel Good In Your Hand, Optical Quality, Reliable Performer, Silent Shutter
Excerpt: I have used various Fuji medium format cameras for over 20 years and the 670 has the typical razor sharp lense I have been accustomed to. I am impressed with the quiet shutter and the light weight of the camera. Prio Fujis were known for theit bulkiness. I grew up using a Kodak Vigilant 616 bellows-type medium format and I am comfortable with the need to protect the fragility of the 670.
Pros: Accurate light meter, Accurate rangefinder, Quality lens, Quick film reload, Reliable Operation, Simple controls
Excerpt: To complement an excellent but aging 1950's Zeiss Ikon Nettar, I wanted a medium format camera with modern features- ready for off the tripod, hand held shooting. I had thought this Fuji was the answer- and the results from two test rolls were excellent. However, my hands are small, and their constant touch against the bellows was an immediate issue when focusing or dialing the aperture while supporting the base of the camera with my palm.
