Fuji G617 Panorama Camera

I bought a Fuji G617 Panorama Camera off ebay. I’ve wanted one of these for years. I would have liked the gx617 but my budget was not that big. I figured that the G617 was a good place to start with and maybe stay with. Having bought it used and having no manual I was a bit worried I would not be able to figure it out and waste a lot of film. But thankfully I got every shot I took with the first roll. That’s not saying much as you only get four photos per roll of 120mm roll film. I used Ilford Delta 400 black and white film. I processed the roll myself using Kodak d-76 developer at 13 minutes with a 1 to 1 ratio. I’m pretty happy with this first set. I hope to use a cable release next time and have a level on it so I’m a bit more straight. I scanned the negatives using a Epson Perfection v800 photo scanner.

More about the photos.

The first is a photo of my backyard. I was mostly just trying to figure the camera out.

The second photo is the moon over my backyard. I love moon photos and wondered what a panorama would look like. I think with a little work it will be ok.

The third photo is off 228th in Canyon Park. I love the far tree line. I’ve wanted to take a photo of this for awhile but I couldn’t find parking and ended up in the turn lane to fire a quick shot and take off. My hazards were a going. Next time I would like to be past that big bush right in the middle of my frame.

The forth photo is the Art building at Shoreline Community College. I figure it might be fun to have a shot of this as I come here almost weekly.
