Pentax 67 II

Hi,

I'm new to this forum-a month ago I bought (a cheap) minty 67 II-but it definitly has a winding problem-when I wind the camera, the shutter doesn't cock-but it transports the fim... -and you hear the winding mechanism ratchet-and sometimes when it works shoot I have to transport the film twice-so I end up with only 5 pics...
So does anybody here know what causes this? And does anybody know a good Pentax 67 repairmen in the Netherlands(besides Will van Manen).
Here's a link to a clip on youtube:



Thanks!

Ouch, that does not even sound as if near in gear. The rough swing of the crank tells the story of it having a major part of the shutter cocking portion that is just not where it is suppose to be. I wish I could help, but if just looks like it needs some serious repair.

film transport

Used 67ll have often got terrible transport problems. I had one that gave me 9 or 8 frames on every 120 roll , and with the low volume i was shooting it was cheaper to not fix the problem and just go with it, but at 5 frames per roll i would perhaps get it repaired.

Finally I've had it repaired by Will van Manen in the Netherlands! Now I'm in the market for a nice 67 105mm

Congrats on the repair. 67 lenses have dropped quite a bit in value, so that 105 you are looking for should be quite affordable. Good luck.
