Employing extremely advanced electronics technology, Bronica has combined the functions of a large studio camera with the portability of a 35mm camera. Sophisticated
enough for the studio and convenient enough for the field. The GS-1's main body is designed to be as simple as possible. The lens, viewfinder, film back and other
accessories work together with the body to make an integrated unit of great versatility. The GS-1 is the first medium format camera that automatically adjusts the flash
by directly metering light through the lens off the film plane. It features Bronica's unique electronically controlled Seiko lens shutter, and a flash that is adjustable
for all speeds up to 1/500 second. The GS-1's tough body weighs only 1,830 grams, including all the standard attachments, so it's great on location. This portability,
combined with state-of-the-art functions that meet the demanding needs of professionals, make the GS-1 a great medium format single lens reflex camera.
