Pentacon 6 TL :)

Praise for the underappreciated Peter


Pretty amazed at my very first roll with Tri-X 400 and HC-110, the camera felt right from the get go. Great way to get into a medium format SLR for almost cheap (and I have a Scottish background). I'll put in a good word for the seller, "jenny-cz" in the Czech republic. I could rant about it, but I'll stop here. Peter

Nice pictures!
The CZJ lenses are superb! Make sure to get the 180 2.8 Sonnar
The body has its quirks (possible frame spacing issues, mirror shake). Other than that it's a cheap, well designed Pentax alternative .

I was quite fortunate with mine, frame spacing is fine and the mirror is surprisingly smooth. I've got the 120 2.8 on the way,the 180 is kinda big and not too light.
It's gonna get some Provia through it soon, as the cherry blossoms are in bloom here in Vancouver . Peter

Lovely .. always nice to see someone using the Pentacon Six. It's a very charming camera.

If you have one copy that doesn't have issues with overlapping frames and sticky shutter, make sure you hold on to it and not let it go.

The only small complainy I have with my P6 is that the ground- glass is sometimes a little dim if used indoors for precise focusing. Other than that it's such a enjoyable piece.
