It was replaced by the GX II in The system was officially discontinued in April It is designed for portrait, and product photography. The bottom part has a remote release socket, mirror control, sync test, and shutter release.
The left of the camera body has the battery holder and battery unlock switch. The camera is powered by a rechargeable 7. Since many used this as a studio camera an AC adapter was also available.
An optional strap kit was offered with the camera, as it does not have mankal slots or lugs for a strap. The system uses interchangeable manuak with bellows type focusing. The standard bellows can be interchanged with either a wide angle or close up versions. The lenses are mounted on a electronic lens board type system which allows for movements on the front standard similar to view cameras.
The front sits on a rail that connects to the main camera body, two knobs on either side control the focusing. A 82mm filter thread is standardized for the system. The shutter is electronically controlled and located within the lens. The lenses have controls for aperture and a depth of field preview lever. The cocking of the shutter is automatic.

Replacement of this battery is a bit difficult but not impossible, and sending it off to Fuji was recommended as it requires soldering.
