I wanted to shoot square format again, but with something less unwiedly than a Mamiya TLR, so I picked up a Pentacon Six, which I’d always wanted to try out. It’s just as unwieldly as a Mamiya TLR, though. And no less obvious that you’re using it. I got it for a little below market rate, but half the shutter speeds don’t work correctly at all. But I can work with just 1/60th, 1/250th & 1/500th.
Some friends were having a backyard party, so I took it along. I like the results.
I just got a bunch of film back from Citizen’s Photo, so you’ll be seeing more from this camera.

Love these images. Such character in quality and content. So well done.
Super nice images. Looks like your purchase is not a bad one after all.
I almost laughed out loud when you wrote about hoping that the Pentacon Six would be less unwieldy. 😉 That said, the pictures you produced made it totally worth it, don’t you think? I personally love my P6 to bits. Especially with the gorgeous 50mm Flektogon on it. Now THAT lens makes it unwieldy. I really need to take it out again and maybe get a 80mm lens for it, too.
