Medium format film has seen a real resurgence in recent years, and with the right camera, you can create negatives that are far bigger than even the most expensive digital cameras. This neat video takes a look at one such camera, the Fuji GW690 II, affectionately known as the "Texas Leica," and the impressive images you can create with it.
Coming to you from Nick Carver, this great video takes a look at the Fuji GW690 II medium format camera. Known as the "Texas Leica" due to its sharp lens and giant size, especially for a rangefinder, the GW690 II was popular for its gigantic negatives, its versatility, and its fantastic image quality. For reference, a 6x9 negative is over six times as big as a 36x24mm full frame negative, so it is easy to see how much detail you can get when you pair it with a good lens. I have had the GW690 III for about a decade now, and while I certainly will not pull it out for just anything due to the cost of film (particularly at this size), it is a special experience to shoot with when the time is right. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Carver.
