  1. Cheyenne Morrison

    The Musashino Koki Rittreck 6×6 (also know as aka Warner 66, Norita 66, Graflex Norita 66, Singer Norita 66, Revue-Six) was considered the poor man’s Pentax 6×7 in it day, but is now is highly sought after, both for its’ scarcity and the stunning Rittron 80mm f/2 lens, later rebadged as the Noritar.

    The Rittreck 6×6/Norita 66 is significantly lighter and has better ergonomics than the Pentax 67. It operates effectively like a giant 35mm camera, no learning curve, Just point and shoot.

    What is remarkable about this camera, made of solid sheet brass, is the extraordinarily good workmanship (which in my opinion reached pre-war Zeiss level), the extremely gentle, almost vibration-free mirror flap and the range of lenses that was remarkable at the time. With the 2/80 there was not only the brightest medium format normal lens on the market, but with the 4/40 there was also an extremely compact UWW (22mm KB eq.) That is hardly larger than the 2/80! Incidentally, the 4/55 has almost exactly the same dimensions as the 2/80, so it is also very compact for an MF wide angle.

    There are a few important quirks to note. The tension lever transports the film when it is opened for the first time and when the control roller (I’ll just call it that) detects that a film has been inserted, the shutter is released. When you cock the lever a second time, you only pull the lock open. This fact leads to confusion if you want to check the function of the camera without film, because the shutter does not open without film and only the film transport works.

    The camera itself counts up to 12 (or 24) and after the last picture the shutter is automatically no longer opened and only the film is transported.

    If you want to open the shutter without film, you have to switch from N to D (normal / double) on the corresponding rotary knob and then actuate the transport lever once plus ~ 1/5 times.

    As with the Pentacon Six, it is possible to get 13 recordings on the 120 roll. To do this, you just have to insert the film and transport it in 220 mode. The image distance is quite generous, so you have to hit the right point when inserting so that the first or last image is not cut off.

    This is my camera Bellamy is selling, so I am obviously biased, but this really is one of the best medium format camera and lens combinations ever made.
