    Default An Old Faithful ~ Pentax 6x7

    All the recent posts using film cameras has got me itching to start shooting a few rolls just for the fun of it.
    Just got back one of my trusty toys from the past...
    Now to get a couple of batteries and a few rolls of 120 film, not to mention building up arm strength...

    Ah, found my photos.



    Superb craftsmanship in that camera and with a little luck it will last another 20 years.

    Another beauty! Almost bought a 645N, but its size and weight put me off. Now I kinda regret.

    Oh well, let's see how it goes. I might get a 645N or N II eventually

    Yup, first hand experience when I was in Pentax Square / Forum. The 67 (newer one) and the 645 was in MINT MINT condition. Never tried these before, don't really know what it's capable of... Maybe you guys can share?
