The Six:12 is a compact, lightweight, medium format camera with dedicated, interchangeable, magnetic lens cones to allow for a range of focal lengths to be used by the photographer.
All Six:12 cameras come with one lens cone/helicoid (where required) as standard. The following lens cone options are currently available, with more being added regularly. If there is a specific lens you wish to use, and it's not listed, get in touch and a custom cone can be designed, so long as the rear element is smaller than 60mm diameter, and the shutter size is smaller than 54mm;
All lens cones are secured using 8 very strong neodymium magnets, and can be removed by pushing the left side of the cone from the inside of the body to release the magnets.
Film loading/unloading is simple, thanks to the hinged rear door, secured using strong embedded magnets.
Both the take up and rewind knobs are machined aluminium.
The rear of the camera body a simple red window, used to quickly and easily wind on to the next frame. The full manual winding means that double/multiple exposures are possible.
Standard frame format is 6x12, but all cameras come with drop in baffles, which can be fitted before loading the film, to reduce the frame size to 6x6. The frame numbers used for each format are;
The basic Six:12camera weighs only 300g, without lens/cone, making it a very compact system that you can comfortably carry in a small bag, or attached via a camera strap. There are two carbon fibre rollers integrated into the film path, ensuring both a smooth wind on, and removing the risk of scratching your film.
As well as a standard 1/4" tripod thread built in to the body of the camera, there is a central coldshoe. Accessory viewfinders/rangefinders can be used in the cold shoe to help with framing/focus (not included).
