Pentax 67ii joins the Family
I was looking for this camera for a few months and I found it as in "new/unused condition"
Everything works as intended but I red about the film advance problem and I'd like to know how to prevent any damage
Any recommendation on using this beauty?
I can't wait to take it on the street and pray for keepers...

What's the film advance problem?? Just shoot a roll and try out the different shutter speeds. When I got my 67II, it looked great but had frame spacing issue, which Pentax repaired for me for ~$300. Since then I haven't had any problems with it period.
nice. i saw on e at my local camera store today and drooled over it. was thinking hard about taking it home with me.
do you mind if i ask how much you paid for the body with the meter?
I paid $1,030 for the following items:

looking good. Are you hand holding it? If so how do you find the sharpness?
I'd say by the looks of the first roll shots that you're well on your way. I'd love to have a 67II, but since I have a couple of nice 6X7's and money is an object, I'll just have to be happy. Besides, a camera is only a "light-tight box" anyway. What's important is what you stick on that light-tight box. I'll just keep putting my Pentax glass on my old Pentax light-tight boxes, but if I should come by a 67II cheap I might just have to upgrade one of those other light-tight boxes. The nice thing about the 6x7 format and the great Pentax glass is that I have no problem cranking out beautiful 16x20's with very little effort. Of course my Rollei or Hasselblad can too, but that's a different story for another day. I have never compared the 67II to a 67 or 6X7, but some say it's easy to handle and lighter???? Have fun and enjoy your new toy. Oh, great price also! JohnW
Lovely shots. Which lens? Did you crop much? Thanks for posting.
Thanks! all shots handheld. These were my first rolls so having a great time with the P67; didn't use MLU, just frame it and shoot.
