Help with GF670--decoupled RF mechanism by mistake

I was fiddling with the GF670 idly when I heard a light snap that sounded like something got detached (not that something broke, I think). Now the lens doesn't return to infinity. Tension stops it at...

Loading "finished" 120 roll in reverse?

Hello,
I have a silly question. Testing a camera, I recently shot half a 120 roll of Provia 100F (current version) and then simply advanced through the end without exposing the remaining frames. I...

~14F in Pittsburgh today. My GF670 battery stopped working after about 20 minutes out in the cold (though held in my gloved hand). I probably shot a couple of frames before noticing that display...

An old thread but I am pretty sure others will be making this decision down the line. There're some important differences in user experience between the GF670 and the Makina.

Actually you just need to press firmly (not twice) to force the GF670’s leaf shutters to open when they are locked.

I recently bought a bunch of Velvia 220 rolls in Japan. Expiring 2019 and 2020. I think they may be the last batches. You can get them on eBay too but at a premium.

There is no need to mess with the camera mechanically. Pressing twice to override shutter lock just works. You can do multi exposures with it, or just it to get a freebie 21st shot.

Thank you. Today I figured out that it is possible to override the shutter lock by pressing the release button for a second time firmly. So I can wind the film pass shot 20 and still take another...

21st 6x7 frame on 220 on GF670?

Hello, I just received the first processed rolls from the lab. I shot mostly Velvia 100 220’s at 6x7 on my new Fuji Gf670, which I love. I noticed that every roll ends with a blank that’s definitely...

We may be talking about different kinds of contrast. On the A7R I've used Lux R 35, Lux M 35 pre-FLE, Contax 35 1.4 -- the CV had by far the strangest and least attractive colors (as in the sample I...

Thanks. I did own an A7S for a week but didn't pay attention to the rotational play at the time. But now that I think of it, you may be right--so I should probably give this Fotodiox replacement a...

I adapt Leica R lenses on the A7R, all under 700 grams, using a Novoflex adapter. There's no play perpendicular to the imaging plane, but there's slight rotational play around the adapter, which is...

I think you're right. I was watching from GH4 videos shot with the f/0.95 CV lenses, and I immediately recognized the "Voigtlander draw." Another consistency I seem to notice is a certain "wooly,"...

Thanks uhoh. I tried the v2 on my girlfriend's A7 casually, and didn't notice any big difference.

Thanks Ron. Echoes my experience.

Likewise interested in the upcoming ZM, although I hear corners and edges on the A7R may not be so hot.

I agree. Everything else was fine--bokeh, price, ergonomics, resolution. Coma handling better than my older Contax and Lux, barrel distortion at close focus a bit stronger, but all fine. Default 0.5m...

Hi guys, I think that solves my problem: what I was referring to is indeed only a painted red dot, not a red light. I tested the camera in the daytime when it was hard to tell. So it's not like the...
