    I wonder what this button does?

    Ok, I downloaded a manual for the Pentax 67, but it does not show the silver doo-hickey on the left. The hoojie on the right controls the frame counter for 120 or 220 load, but I have no idea what the other one does. There does appear to be a pin that keeps it in the current position, which must be pressed to move it.

    However I am not a fan of pressing an unknown button on a camera I do not want to break. Can any buddy help me on this?

    Thanks!

    Are you sure the one on the right is a hoojie? I thought Pentax stopped using hoojies back about 1961.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Factory-fitted multi-exposure lever. RARE.
    It's on mine. In the camera's hey day, owners could return the 67 to a Pentax service centre and this multi-exposure facility would be fitted. Many cameras came with it as an additional feature, often sought after even now for 'layered' imaging interpretations.

    Push in pin, turn lever left until M appears. Fire. No wind on until pin is disengaged.

    I think you are thinking of the thing-a-ma-jig. Hoojies weren't discontinued until 88.

    Thank you all for the info.

    I don't believe I have ever done a multiple exposure image. Guess I should try one some day.

    Don't press it. It might reset the world and I'm too old to start over!

    I'd had my P645N for about 10 years before I tried some - lots of fun and works easily.

    Try a multiexposure (3 or 4) of a river lined by vegetation and a very light breeze. The effect is surreal, almost painterly. Remember to set your film in use to a higher EI on account of multiple exposures.

    Ah. My first thought seeing it was that it was a battery check like I've seen on older Minoltas (XE series).
