67 Hotshoe Grip Question

Hi all,

I'm in the market for a wooden hotshot grip for my Pentax 67. I noticed that some models are marked "Asahi Pentax," originally made for the 6x7 and 67, and some are marked only "Pentax," made later on when the 67ii was being manufactured. My question is, can I use a 67ii grip for my plain old 67? I assume I can, but have never handled one in person to find out.

I was told no by a local Pentax dealer who had one for sale. Note the grips for the 6x7 and 67 are "cold shoe".

The AF400T flash with 6x7 grip might be an alternative.

The wooden grip on the 6x7 shown in that PDF tuco posted looks exactly like the one I have on my 67II.

Here is an old link for the Pentax 67ii Hotshoe grip. It is different from the older 6x7 and 67 wooden grip with a "coldshoe".

Pentax Hotshoe Grip 67II for 67 Series Cameras 38012 B&H Photo


This quote from Photo.net explains the differences better:

The wood grip for the old Pentax 6x7/67 camera and the Hot shoe grip 67II for the Pentax 67II. Either can be used to add flash capability to your 67II camera. The older wood grip has a cold shoe that allows a flash to be mounted, but the flash needs to have a sync cord that connects to the PC outlet on the camera. The newer Hot shoe grip 67II contains a hotshoe that allows various Pentax flashes to be fired without a PC cord, and in this setup the flash also automatically sets the shutter speed to 1/30th and provides a flash indication in the viewfinder. It does, however, use a short cord (supplied, I understand) that connects the hotshoe to the cameras's 5P sync terminal.

Phil.
