For sale is my Widelux F8 camera in near-mint condition. Included is a Widelux leather case and original instruction sheet (in Japanese). The Widelux F8 was produced between 1988 and 2000 and is the final and most sought after Widelux model, featuring helical gears in the swing mechanism to minimise'banding' in the panoramic photos, which earlier models were susceptible to. The camera is in outstanding condition. A very small piece of surface finish has rubbed off, just above the viewfinder on the front of the camera.

This is just visible in the photos. It is a very tiny blemish and purely cosmetic. The leather case is in great condition. Note that a previous owner has written some Japanese characters in pen on the inside of the flap on the case (hidden in normal use). It has been well reported that the swing mechanism on the Widelux should be'exercised' between every photo by manually moving the barrel.

In my experience, the camera can skip a frame on the film if this is not done, so I would highly recommend doing this. Overall this is a beautiful camera and I will be sad to see it go!
