Pentacon 66 Post-CLA

The Pentacon was a fun camera. Handled like a giant SLR, had readily available lenses that were high quality and reasonably affordable. A great intro to medium format photography. These photos are from the first roll after having it CLA’d. Exposure was off – old habits of adjusting to make up for the slow shutter overexposed the roll, but it was at least consistent. Negative framing was fixed with the overhaul and everything now worked in tip-top shape. Eventually this camera was replaced with a Kiev 88cm, which shares it’s lens mount with the Pentacon, in a Hasselblad knock-off body.
