The Flexaret VI was made by Meopta in Czechoslovakia from 1964 to 1968. The camera can use either 120 films or 35mm film with an adapter. This is a TLR camera with a Meopta Belar 80mm f/3.5 taking lens, a Meopta Anastigmat 80mm f/3 viewing lens, and a Metax or Prontor-SVS shutter. It's a fully mechanical camera with an all-metal body. It has a solid feel to it and has some advanced features mirroring Rolleicord and Rolleiflex models from the same period. The camera has a frame counter that automatically resets to zero when the film compartment is opened, a shutter release manual lock slide button, a flash sync socket, shutter speeds (Prontor-SVS) from 1 second to 1/500 of a second plus B, Shutter speeds (Metax) 1 second to 1/400 of a second plus B, film advance winding knob with shutter loading, an ASA reminder dial in the back with an automatic film indicator window that changes from 60 to 35 when the 35mm film adapter kit is used by pressure on the frame pressure plate inside the back cover, a 3/8” 16 thread per inch tripod mount, a Cold shoe, and a film rewind knob that when pulled out releases the film roll. The viewfinder has a number of ways you can use it. One way is as a waist-high, another is as an optical by using the flip over the lens with your eye up to it but still looking down, and lastly as a frame viewer using the openings through the back and front of the flip-up frame with no optics. The camera pictured here is in Fine condition and worth $120.00 in 2018.
