Fujifilm in KLASSE W film camera shocker

It may not have 12 megapixels or shoot video but sometimes even we yearn for the smell of silver halide on acetate and the once familiar whirr of film

It may not have 12 megapixels or shoot video but sometimes even we yearn for the smell of silver halide on acetate and the once familiar whirr of film being wound on.Yes, film, for Fujifilm's latest camera is a dyed in the wool, back to basics 35mm film camera. Resurrecting the KLASSE body last aired in 2006, the KLASSE W Black is, unsurprisingly, an all-black version of the original, limited edition, wide-angle KLASSE W.This is no artsy, plastic lens Lomo. It sports a high-quality 28mm f/2.8 glass that'll knock spots off any digital compact, as well as full manual or simple point-and-shoot controls.'And what', you ask, 'is the price for such old skool photo action?' A cool ¥100,000 – or about £435, plus film and developing costs, remember them? Still, enthusiasts swear by 'em but if you'd like to get your mitts on one you'll have to find an importer or scour eBay as it's Japan-only. That didn't stop plenty of last year's model finding their way here though, so keep a look out.Essentials Fujifilm KLASSE W Black Price: ¥100,000 On sale: 22 November (in Japan) Contact: Fujifilm Related stories: Gadget of the Day: White Stripes Limited Edition CamerasPentax's g-old school SLR Film gets a reprieve from Fuji
