 Item updated in the last 24 hours Item price reduced in the last 24 hours   Fuji GX617 Medium Format 6x17 camera w/ 105mm lens

Item Withdrawn


Price: $3,100.00
Payment method: PayPal
Item condition: 9+ Shows little or no signs of wear
Shipping instructions: USA only please. I will cover the cost of shipping, and cover all paypal fees.

I purchased this camera in 2010, and have used it a bit over the years, but I've been rethinking my setup, and I can also shoot panoramic photos with my 8x10 view camera. I hate to have gear sitting around that doesn't get used as often as I would like, so I've decided to sell this camera.

This camera uses medium format film (120 or 220) to produce beautiful images that span nearly 7 inches on film. The enlargement potential is outstanding. Unlike digital where you have to stitch images, you capture an entire panoramic shot with just one click of the shutter.

This camera works more like a large format camera than a medium format, so there is a bit of a learning curve, but it's well worth it.

The camera is in excellent condition. The only real signs of use you'll see is the shoe on top of the camera where the viewfinder slides into. There is a painted piece of metal that will show some lines from attaching the viewfinder. The rest of the camera is in excellent condition with few signs of use.

Included with the camera is a 105mm lens. I initially wanted the 90mm, but I've learned that the 105mm has been ideal for every situation I've used this camera. It captures a field of view roughly equivalent to 24mm on a 35mm camera.

Also included with this camera is the original viewfinder, original Fuji center filter (often sells for about $300 on its own), the original fuji ground glass back, the original fuji hood, and the rear lens cap and body cap (I paid $60 for them at KEH)

It will come in a heavy duty hard case with custom foam -- very similar to a pelican case, but it's a different brand.

All you'll really need to get this camera up and running is a roll of film, and a cable release.

But wait, there's more...

Act now, and I'll throw in my stockpile of frozen 120 film consisting of: 5x rolls of Fuji Velvia 50, 6x rolls of Kodak Ektar 100, and 2x rolls of Fuji Neopan 100. It's all current stuff, and ready to be shot.

I would prefer to keep this as a USA only sale due to the expense of the item. I will cover the cost of shipping, and cover all paypal fees.

I'm asking $3100.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Ben, I remember years ago seriously jonesing for that rig. With my current gear (4x5 and 17mm ts-e for the 1DsIII) the desire has waned. Still nice to see one.... GLWS.

Its nice to see such a nice camera available, even if only once in a while. For those who are on the fence about the format itself, don't be, everything about this camera delivers exactly as promised. good luck on your sale.

What a great thing to see... this is such a beauty!

I've always lusted heavily for this camera. I can't believe you are letting it go at that price!

Please somebody snatch this as I feel the urge to get on a plane to the US just to buy this

Really, what a beauty!

I stitch now but miss my 6x17. I love the viewfinders on these Fuji's and have purchased them (and Linhof viewfinders) just for composing digital stitched panoramas. As a sidenote, if anyone wants to sell me a Fuji 300mm GX617 viewfinder, I'd be interested.

And also +1 for Ben. Great fellow and photographer.
