Fujica Auto-M

Recently Fuji announced a new digital compact camera, the X100, that has many styling cues from the past.  It’s an attractive camera and has garnered a lot of attention from photographers.  I’m interested in seeing this camera in person when it comes out in 2011 but until then I decided to give one of the Fujica’s I already own a spin.  The Fujica 35 Auto M has an unusual 47mm f2.8 lens.   Another interesting feature and perhaps one of the first cameras to have it is complete auto exposure with both shutter and aperture controlled by the camera, this can also be overridden making it a very versatile camera.  If looking at the camera leaves you wondering about advancing the film and cocking the shutter, the lever is  on the bottom and easily done with a thumb.

And now the sample images.
