Word of advice for your first roll: don't take anything on the 10th frame that you will particularly upset if it doesn't turn out.

One of the things that sometimes goes on these is the frame advance/spacing, so it's not unheard of for them to wind up with the final frame of a roll slightly cut off.

Merci ! I am running a test roll through it now.

I also discovered something by hazard when checking visually the speeds, mirror movement, etc, without a lens attached. When I set the shutter speed dial between two settings - like a little more than half way between 1/250 and 1/500 (this was an accident while handling/testing) - the mirror will remain raised and the shutter curtail remains open, thus a default MLU ... anyone else experienced this ?

never ! I never had the idea of trying something like that

Be carefull because remaining the curtain open really drain the batterie fast on the 67. When i mean fast, it's a couple of hour for a brand new batterie.

That's standard. You can technically use it as a makeshift T setting, though I've never tried.

Officially, you also use it in conjunction with the U/S switch on the 90/2.8LS. (Though the manual for that one suggests setting it between X and 1/1000.)

Wow. That's very kind ... and "oui".

I will send you a PM. Salut, J

Also, I just ran a roll of Ilford Delta 100 and home developed it. There was a horizontal scratch (near mid-frame) of most of the negative ... sometimes the scratch would lessen up and be gone. Maybe it was some debris that was shook loose during shipment, since I have looked careful at everything else inside and have found no apparent (to me) problem. I am going to run another roll with the 90/2.8 LS on it ... crossed fingers.

Also, the spacing seemed fine even on the tenth and final frame.

Here's a test image with the 75/4.5 one stop down ...

Must be something across the film gate. Check very carefully at the extreme right/left where the film comes off the reel and where it winds onto the next reel. If there are rollers (not sure if the 6X7 has these), check that they spin totally freely. Had a similar problem with one of my 35mm Pentax bodies, but don't remember what I eventually found.

a book and an Asahiflex

A few more p0rn items.

The very rare book, found it on a swedish auction site, paid approx 80USD for it. It looks brand new and never opened.

The other item I found was an Ashiflex of the latest model, second series of the IIB with the original Takumar 1:3.5 50mm (modell III). IIB is based on IIA, but lacking the slow speed dial. Its location is covered with a black lid. According to Gerjan van Oosten, it might be one of the rarest Asashi Pentax cameras, with around 5250 produced. I love the case, and the feel of this. Maybe it should visit Eric for a tune-up. He did a brilliant job on my Asahiflex IA. Anyone here with similar version of the Asahiflex IIA?

And does anyone know of a lens hood for this small lens?

Waiting for a mint black K with Zebra 55/1.8 but the seller has gone totally silent. I might have to hit the refund button.

Where did you come across the black K? Some sellers are not reliable.
