I have a project coming up where I'll need lots of resolution and a WA lens on a camera that can be handheld. Since digital MF isn't possible for budgetary reasons, I'm considering a Fujifilm GSW690, probably model III, to get a camera that is as new as possible and hopefully reliable.
Does anybody here have experience with that camera, particularly handheld?
The ideal solution would actually be a 6 x 12 camera, but the alternatives in that format seem to start around $3,000. The D800 is also out of the question since the price with a good quality WA lens is also well above $4,000, and MF film will give me more useable resolution anyway (I will mainly use Ektar 100 for this project). Also, most of the photography will take place in a wet marine environment, which is one reason why I don't consider the A7r. Destroying a $4-800 Fuji would be within my budget, but not the more expensive Sony.
