The Pentacon Six System
Where can I get an operating
manual for my Pentacon Six?
You can find the Pentacon Six manual at:
This is Nathan Daytonís excellent ďcommiecamerasĒ website.
Oldtimer Cameras of Hatfield, England, can also provide operating manuals,
but not to view on-line. In my experience, manuals from them are
photocopies of the originals.
Their website is www.oldtimercameras.com.
Fax +44 1707 273773
You can find German-language operating manuals at http://mitglied.lycos.de/kamerageschichte/

Note about German manuals added 24th June 2007
I am sorry that this link doesnít currently work. (I donít have
any personal knowledge of the owner of that website.)
As an alternative source for a manual, I suggest that you contact Rolf-Dieter
Baier. See http://www.baierfoto.de/Instructions.html
He currently shows a Praktisix manual. This is similar to, but
not the same as, a Pentacon Six, but he may have a manual for you.
You can e-mail him in English or German.
If Herr Baier canít help, I suggest that you set up a search on eBay.de
with the key word Bedienungsanleitung or Gebrauchsanweisung.
Important I suggest that you follow the instructions on this
website on loading the camera; following the instructions in the manual
can result in problems!
