Description

Originally debuting in 1965 as a prototype dubbed the Pentax 220. Since then and with improvements, it finally released in 1969 as the Asahi Pentax 6×7, as well as the Honeywell Pentax 6×7 for the North American import market. It would later receive a few changes and dubbed the Pentax 67. It was a SLR medium format system cameras for 120 and 220 film. It resembles a traditional 35mm SLR camera with interchangeable viewfinder and lens, but is considerably bigger and heavier, weighing 2.3 kilograms (5.1 lb) with plain prism and standard lens; perhaps inspired by the 1957 East German 6×6 KW Praktisix and its successor, the Pentacon Six, although the horizontal SLR concept can be traced back to the 1933 Ihagee VP Exakta. The Pentax 6×7 has its own dual bayonet lens mount, and a wide range of interchangeable Takumar lenses exist. More than forty years after the original camera introduction a wide selection of lenses was still available, together with the latest Pentax 67II

Review

BY DANIEL J. SCHNEIDER

It’s been a little more than a year since I got my Pentax 6×7, but writing this kind of in-depth review is no small task. And the 6×7 is no small camera, either.

In the time I’ve had the 6×7, I’ve acquired a second body, a full range of lenses, filters, hoods and other accessories, and the 6×7 has wound up replacing my Nikon kit for serious photography. I’ve already hauled it all over Colorado and into southern Wyoming, and at one point thought I’d worn out whatever life it had left when I got it.
