Outer bayonet offers greater stability for mounting longer, heavier lenses.
Pentax 6x7 cameras have been particularly popular with fashion and landscape photographers because of the large film size, absolutely flat film plane.

Electronically controlled focal plane shutter, shutter speed: 1 sec - 1/1000 plus B, and X sync at 1/30. For high speed flash synchronizing 1/500,two leaf shutter lenses available. Camera can be modified to not require batteries in bulb mode. Completely battery dependent camera and has no exposure meter built in body. It does not work without film.
The Hasselblad film size is 56mm x 56mm square. When you actually crop to print, a Hasselblad usable negative area is more like a 6x4.5 camera( like –Pentax 645 negative). With the much larger 6x7 frame (55mm x 70mm) means no cropping on printing paper 8x10/20x24, the Pentax has more film area and requires less print magnification than Hasselblad or any square format camera.
Reason for sale is: simply= lack of time to use
