Photographer Lukas Funk recently sent his Fuji X100S to Fujifilm for repairs in Europe due to a minor issue. When he got the fixed camera back, the internal storage held this behind-the-scenes test photo captured by a technician.

In addition to a large number of Fuji-branded memory cards used for testing, we see a sheet of peel-off replacement faux-leather strips. Anyone know which part of the camera they’re for?

This monster, pictured here next to a Minox, yields 6 x 17 centimeter slides or negatives on 120 film, 4 images on a roll which you can blow up to insane dimensions.

It all started in my photo club, where someone showed 1 meter big prints from Scotland. These landscapes were so incredibly detailed and rich they totally overwhelmed me, they hit me like lightning. They were taken with a Linhof 6×17 panoramic camera. Read more…
