A while back, before I went to Paris, a friend loaned me his Fuji GSW 690 II to play with, since I didn’t have anything in a wide-angle to take. While I wasn’t crazy about the camera’s operation, and I don’t particularly like the way it renders color on color film, I have to say going back and revisiting the black-and-white negatives I shot with it I’m actually pleasantly surprised. It might be worth giving another try some day. I may just have not shot enough with it to get a good feel for the operation.
