    Looking for: Plaubel Makina W67 operating manual

    Hi there, I'm looking for the operating manual for a Plaubel Makina W67 (55mm lens). I can find the manual for the 67 (80mm lens) on the net but the W version seems much harder to locate. Does anyone have a scanned copy I can get? Greatly appreciate it, thanks.

    You could mail this chap or one of the other sellers http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mint-in-bo...item4175dd98ae and see if they can scan you a copy.
    Only use the 6x9 Makina II, but aside from lens details and any bellows compensation details would not the 67 manual at least cover the basics? Problem I've got is most of all the references I can find for mine all refer to the IIS to the IIIR. . .
    Aside from the less than helpful "keep looking" and "monitor Ebay" that's all I can think.

    There may be an outside chance in emailing Plaubel over in Germany.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Had emailed Plaubel but not heard back from them. And yes the 67 manual is adequate, the instructions are pretty basic actually like for most film cameras but it'd be nice to have the real thing if someone already had it scanned. Thanks !

    I've got the camera, but not the booklet unfortunately -- though it's a pretty simple camera to operate. General advice is to always set the focusing to infinity prior to retracting the bellows, and to not permit the bellows to snap out or in under their own weight, as if it were a switchblade. Wish I could find a grip, but those I've seen sell for $200 or something silly like that.
