Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Sunny Southern California

Hi Everyone,
I recently joined this forum as I was searching for info on medium format cameras. I settled on the Pentax 67ii and have purchased one online from a shop in Japan. It should get to me around the first week of the new year. This will be a big (no pun intended) adventure for me, my first foray into medium format photography. My first serious camera was an Olympus OM-1 that I purchased in 1976. For the last several years I have been shooting digital, but recently started shooting some 35mm film. I so enjoy the results of the black and white film that I decided to explore medium format. I am very excited to get this camera in hand and run some film through it. Once I get some results I will be posting here on the forum.

G'day from Australia, merry Christmas and may I wish you a warm welcome to the forums.

I hope we get to see some scans from the 67ii, folks around here are quite partial to members sharing their images.

Welcome to the forum, we here in Scotland can only dream of such things at this time of year... in fact at any time of year.

After what seemed like a very long wait, what with shipping from Japan and several days to process through US Customs, my new to me Pentax 67ii arrived today. I will not be able to get out and run some film through it for a few days as we are getting some much needed rain. I am pleased with my purchase. The camera and lens look perfect and the wood grip looks good, just shows a little wear.

After getting it in my hands and seeing it next to my 35mm camera, I can see why some folks refer to this camera as "the beast".

Needless to say, I am excited!
