  • Excerpt: This is the best camera I have ever owned. It's a heavy beast that takes wonderful photos, because of its large negatives.
  • Pros: easy grip, good prism, large negatives, simple to use

  • Excerpt: I have tried two Pentax 67ii camera bodies over the last two years. On both occasions, the body suffered from defects in the film advance mechanism. The film advance lever binds and will not advance the film. This can happen when loading a roll, or mid-roll.
  • Pros: AE Prism
  • Cons: Poor quality; film advance prone to breakdown

  • Excerpt: If I want to shoot with more muse, patience & ease, if I want excellent image quality for fine art photography, if I want more depths in my pictures: I use my Pentax 67II. I love this camera, right from the start when I got it two years ago and thought it was broken when I first heard the mirror hit...
  • Pros: gorgeous image quality, excellent light metering, wooden grip
  • Cons: HUGE!, slow

  • Excerpt: As far as all the film medium format Pentax cameras go, this was tops for me. I didn't want to stop at 6x4.5 and also wasn't a fan of the 6x6 Hasselblad, so I went straight to the 67II, with it's ultra large 6x7 negatives.
  • Pros: Image quality.
  • Cons: Never an upgrade to AF or digital.

  • Excerpt: I bought my first 6x7 in 1974 along with a 135 macro lens. I still have the camera and still love it. Since then I have bought 5 other 67 bodies and 18 lenses.

  • Excerpt: I'm surprised not to find any review or words about the 67ii. I've been using a P67 for a few years now for both astrophotography and landscape. A great rugged camera and well suited for astro with a battery bypass device developed by my friend.

  • Excerpt: . That can't be right, surely. The 67 II is a much better, much improved camera compared to its older siblings, but also more expensive, of course. But can price alone be a negative factor when the camera is much newer and improved in a number of ways?
  • Pros: Handling/ergonomics; AE, extended shutter range, multi-segment metering, ML, EV-comp. +/- 3 EV; diopter adjustment; multi-exposure; LCD-panel; easier MLU; TTL; price (compared to competition)
  • Cons: Weight; lack of strap lugs on the right-hand side; no electronic remote release; 90 % view (with the AE prism); no external battery pack; no digital back (like Mamiya RX67); price (compared to Pentax 6x7/67)

  • Excerpt: After being in production for almost 30 years the Pentax 6x7/67 cameras & TTL metered prism finally got a complete overhaul in 1998. This new 67II & AE metered prism were designed to work together and are a completely different shooting experience.
  • Pros: User interchangeable focusing screens, TTL flash support & redesigned metered prism.
  • Cons: Not as nice looking as the older 6x7/67 bodies.

  • Excerpt: I Bought a Pentax 67 II in June 2000 because I wanted the most compact and lightweight 6x7 slr I could find for landscape and travel photography. Although I am a regular tripod user I find it very useful to be able to hand hold the camera down to 1/30 sec with wide angle lenses and down to 1/60 sec...
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Versatility
