Question about Pentax 67II Medium Format Camera

1 Answer

67 for Astro Photography

I would like to go to medium format for my astro photography. My telescope (F7) field flattener is bayonet ready for the Pentax 67. Exposures can run from 20 to 90 minutes. Battery drain is always a consideration, and exposure meter is not required.

Which of the 67's would you recommend. The 67II is lighter - an asset, but more electronics. Where can I read up on these models?

You may wish to choose a much older model which uses a mechanical shutter with BULB functionality. That way, you don't rely on the power in a battery to keep the shutter open for 20-90 minutes.

Finally, for this type of questions, I would also try the forums - the guys over there know just about everything about photography!

67 type II winder problem

This is not a simple repair - if the wind lever is "ratcheting", parts will have to be replaced. If the wind lever is "free-wheeling", there might be no film in the camera, or the counter isn't working ( it has to be at #1 or above to cock the shutter ). It's a job for a repair shop.
