These are selling for upwards of $300 and more on Ebay and apparently Fuji will still service them. Medium format. Actually I'm kind of interested...kind of...

Apparently they are pretty good cameras:

Assuming, of course, that design does not include elements of size! I have handled a GW690 and it is hardly compact! The 6 and 9 in the model name stand for 6cm and 9cm...huge...

So, you are paying $1,700 for that old thing .

I do appreciate the retro styling though. And I am pretty sure I am not a hipster (though I do ride a fixed gear bike...).
