The Fujica GW690 Professional and the nine similar models that followed it are leaf-shutter fixed-lens rangefinder cameras for 120/220 film that Fuji brought out as successors to its interchangeable-lens Fujica GL690 and Fujica GM 670 Professional models.

In addition to the Fujica GW690 Professional (the last to be called "Fujica"), the series includes the Fuji GW690II, GW670II, GSW690II, GW690III, GW680III, GW670III, GSW690III and GSW680III (all of them "Professional")

The Fujica GW690 Professional was the first to be released, in November 1978, priced at ¥143,500. It is based on the GL690 — a leaf-shutter rangefinder camera for 6×9 exposures on 120 or 220 film — from which it differs most importantly in having a fixed lens.

The Fuji GSW690III Professional has redesigned exteriors that emphasize curves rather than right angles and have rubberized coatings. It also has a small spirit level embedded in the top in front of the wind lever (this level has a single axis, serving only to help balance the left and right), and push-button spool release.

The lens is a Biogon-type SW65mm F5.6 with 6 elements in 4 groups mounted in a mechanical #0 shutter.

Often Biogon-designs have 8 lenses, however Fujifilm used high index glass and increased the lens thickness and curve radius to obtain a novel 6 element design.
