Rittreck / Norita 66

Medium format 6x6 SLR system • Discontinued



Norita 66 SLR was a unique medium format camera built for SLR eye-level fast and easy action. The camera was slightly larger than comparable 35mm cameras in weight and dimension. It was conceived and designed keeping in mind the rigid requirements of the professional photo-journalist, industrial photographer and advanced amateur.

Focal plane shutter speeds were in three groups: a) Bulb to 1/30th second, b) 1/60th to 1/500th second and Bulb to 1/15 second, and c) electronic flash (strobe)-(X)-at the fast 1/40th second and Bulb to 1/15th second. A special front leaf shutter lens provided strobe capabilities up to 1/500th of a second.

A super-speed 80mm F/2 lens interchangeable by a breeachlock bayonet mount was supplied as standard equipment. A full range of lenses was available from the super-wide 40mm to the telephoto 400mm.
