Latest Review Posted Pentax 6x7
Found moded 6x7 MLU with late 90mm and TTL prism in a good shape on eBay for 460$ in 2015.


Pros:
- camera operates like 35mm format camera
- MLU and multiexposure switch (chrome switch near film type switch 120/220) on some models
- looks like a CAMERA
- large viewfinder (dslr's viewfinder looks like keyhole for me)
- wide range of lenses
- price


Cons:
- film loading
- battery-dependent
- mirror can't be lowered
- weight in some cases


Some of users would say that shutter+mirror are to loud but that's not a problem for me.


I own two bodies: older one nonMLU with numbers 10/21 instead of roll type and moded MLU model that is able to make multiexposure shots.


It's hard to find info about multiexposure mode, I only know that there're 6x7 and 67 cameras moded that way and aslo some of them had prism finder with hotshoe on the top.


My camera can take multiexposure shots. To do that - make first exposure, switch lever on right side of the camera, cock shutter again and fire, switch multiexposure lever back. Film counter won't rotate while you cocking shutter in multiexposure mode.


Also I can flip mirror down if I accidently pushed MLU button without wasting frame.


If someone's looking for diopter correction lens.. you should know that diopter correction lens for Nikon F100/ F90X/ F90/ F801S will fit prism viewfinder. Pentax made correction lenses but they cost twice more.


Here're pics of my MLU camera with multiexposure lever:
