ThePentax 6x7(known as Pentax 67 after 1990) is an SLR medium format system film camera for 120 and 220 film, which produces images on the film that are nominally 6 cm by 7 cm in size (56mm by 70mm in the film gate), made by Pentax. It originally debuted in 1965 as a prototype dubbed the Pentax 220. Since then and with improvements, it was released in 1969 as the Asahi Pentas6×7, as well as theHoneywell Pentax 6×7for the North American import market. In 1990, it received a number of minor engineering updates and cosmetic changes and was renamed thePentax 67.
The camera resembles a traditional 35 mm SLR camera with an interchangeable viewfinder and lens, but is considerably bigger and heavier, weighing 2.3 kilograms (5.1 lb) with the plain prismand standard (105 mmf/2.4) lens.
The Pentax 6×7 has a dual bayonet lens mount, and a wide range of interchangeable Takumar and later SMC Pentax 67-designated lenses exist. More than forty years after the original camera introduction a wide selection of lenses is still available, together with the latest Pentax 67II variant.
The following models have been issued:
Asahi Pentax 6×7– the original model, launched in 1969 (first generation)
Asahi Pentax 6×7 (MLU)– with a mirror lock-up mechanism, launched in 1976 (second generation)
