The Makina 67 was developed by Plaubel after the company was bought in 1975 by a Japanese company named Doi. It was a 6×7 strut folding camera with a coupled rangefinder. Its shape was reminiscent of the earlier Makina.
The first prototypes were called Makinette 67 and made in Germany, and were quite different from the production model.
The production Makina 67 bodies were made in Japan by Konica. They had a Nikkor 80/2.8 lens.
The Makina 670 followed, with a modified body, shared with the wide angle variant Makina W67, equipped with a Nikkor 55/4.5 lens.
The company still services and repairs this cameras.
