The Fujica Half is a handsome, pocketable half-frame 35mm camera. It was manufactured in response to the excellent Olympus Pen (here is a slightly later model) and looks not dissimilar to the Canon Demi.
Functionally, the camera does what it needs to do, though the shutter release is a bit spongy for my taste. The f2.8 Fujinon lens is excellent and I will be posting sample images at a later date.
There is also the Fujica Half 1.9 featuring a Fujinon f1.9 lens. I’d love to get my hands on one of those!
