New FILM Camera—What?
Fujifilm, living up to its anachronistic company name, has a released a new film camera—the Fuji Klasse W, a "premium point-and-shoot" with a fixed 28mm ƒ/2.8 Super-EBC Fujinon lens. The camera is a limited edition of 8,000 units, and will be offered for sale in Japan only.
Stateside, therefore, the only place you'll be able to get it is through the Japan outlet Megaperls Webshop, the unique independent exporter of Japan-only photo products. It's a bit on the expensive side at ¥86,000 ($746.17 at this morning's rate of exchange), but the folks at Megaperls tell us it's a solid, substantial camera. Note also the matching Klasse W carrying case on the Megaperls page.
