6x9 TLR

Stephen H , Oct 06, 2005; 10:12 p.m.

I recall reading of a TLR sometime back that had the unusual distinction of being a 6x9 instead of a 6x6. But I can't think who made it (and don't find much trying to search for it!). Any ideas? Any user experience with one?

The Koni Omegaflex M was a 6x7 TLR. I don't recall ever hearing about a 6x9.

There's the OmegaFlex, a 6x7 TLR based on the Koni Omega. And there's the various Graflex large format SLR's. There's also the GowlandFlex 4x5 TLR's.

. . . and the 6x9 (or conceivably even 9x9) Makiflex SLR.

Thanks, I'm pretty sure the Koni Omegaflex is what I was remembering, and just remembered the size wrong. And that explains why the search didn't work!

There was also a french one, the Ontoflex.

That Welta looks insane, like someone tore a folder and a TLR apart, built a 6x6 rangefinder, and needed something to do with the leftover parts.

The weltaflex was always one of those cameras where you were left wondering just why anyone ever bothered to design it in the first place!

There was also a FOLDING 6x9 TLR, the Perfekta. Quite rare, I believe...
