Almost forgot about this thread. Here are a few recent scans from a trip I made to the Redwoods in California last year. Portra 400 might just be the perfect color film for this camera. Beautiful colors, almost no grain at this size, and helps with slower lenses like the 75mm f/4.5.

Pentax 67II, MC Pentax 67 Macro 135mm f/4 + Macro Tube #3, Fujicolor Pro 160S, no filter, tripod, PCV dev & scan

Becasue the macro tube does not transmit the f-stop setting to the meter coupling, after focusing I stopped down and put the lens in DOF preview mode so the Aperture Priority mode of the 67II set the exposure.

bought a 6x7 back in September and my Takumar 105 2.4 lens finally arrived early October and I'm loving it for both portraits or street.

I miss My Pentax 67!!!!
I went to take photos with it few days ago...I thought it was secured in the tripod and as soon as I turned to grab my cable release..........I heard a big splash I turned and I saw it way down on the water with the Lovely 55mm F4 and a bubble lever

I was standing above the wall and shot with Sony a900 and nothing happened with it (Thankfully) but the pentax was not locked correctly on the tripod head and the tripod didn't move at all. unfortunately, I couldn't return it from the sea.

I sure miss it, it use to handle way better than my Hasselblad.

Ouch.

Just returned to the big SLR after a second hiatus. I shot the 67 for many years, then ended up having to sell the whole kit. Got a body and 45 lens for a short while for a particular project and sold that when it was over. But I did miss it. And the great lenses are really great.

Have a body and a 55 right now, looking for a 100 next...

Thanks Peter and Chris.
I am working with a photo project named "colleagues". I make just one shot on each.
It will take me a some time but its worth it. Definitely.

You really shouldn't show pictures like that you know. A Pentax 67 with the 105/2.5 lens is one of the few cameras I have GAS for. And now you've made it worse!!

Welcome back! They do get under your skin. I had my first back in the mid-70s. Replaced it around 2006. While I have and love the 45mm lens, I do lust after the last 55mm lens. One of these days I'll spring for one.
Enjoy!

The more I use it, the more I think that the Pentax 67 is the greatest camera ever made.

I love mine and after it's been with me crossing 6 continents on a motorcycle and never missing a beat while working from +45C down to -30C, from sand to ice I also think it's the best 6x7 slr ever made! From outside it's built like a tank but from the inside it's artistic as a Picasso. I'll probably take it with me into the grave!

Margus, I discovered some of your P67 work a couple of years ago and it hasn't ceased to amaze me. Together with the fact of going down the road in a motorbike for a few months.

I am too a lover of travel, but currently studying; However I've decided that for a future "big" trip I'd like to bring MF.

Yep, if you're into photography with a character it's worth carrying a decent MF-gear on your travels (big-$$$ dSLR guys will laugh at you though!). Lots of good MF rangefinders around too. While I'm looking for a Fuji GA645 as an "ultralight-MF" trekking camera the P67 SLR definitely will be my do-all camera - the big pro is that you can actually see what you're doing and get the right moment even with the filters attached plus P67 does it with a character of its own.

































Safe roads,
Margus

Margus, those are some inspiring work with the P67 and I'm glad I had the experience on shooting one but alas I decided to let mine go.
Might pick-up a 67II if their prices continues on dropping but otherwise I'm leaving MF photography. (Although my friend is selling me his 645N w 75 2.8..hmmm.)

here are shots from the last roll I took with my 6x7

^thanks for a the link, I enjoy looking at travel pictures

well after selling my 6x7 on a friday, I ended up buying another 6x7 the next monday.
I was talking to a friend who was looking to buy an RB67 and that made me realize how much I enjoyed shooting with my 6x7. bought the same gear but this time I also bought a 200 f4 and planning on getting a folding focusing hood.

here's some pics from my new 6x7
