Malefic 6x17 camera - experiences?

The 6x17 version was made by a hobbyist (Shawn) who worked with the original Kraken designer (Graham Young) to make the camera wider. That Esty page says he's paying a license fee to sell them (I see he also prints and sells the 612 version).
Ah, I missed that part, obviously. Thanks for the clarification.

Seems the acquisition has been completed, and the new owner is taking orders on the 617 and cones once again:


Very reasonable pricing. I may pick up a 150mm cone after I find a lens. I find 90mm is very wide to compose on 6x17.

Nice to see its available again, at least for those of us who live in US:) I’ll stick to 90mm though, I like the one-lens-outfit.

In my camera, the film seems to be a bit off-centered, so there is more space on the top of the film than on the bottom. Does anyone have the same experience and/ or an idea to avoid this issue?

It sounds like an issue with the method you use to load the film. If the film isn't fully seated at the base, you'll have 'space' at the top where the film doesn't get exposed.

While loading your film, you need to ensure that both spools are fully seated, and you'll need to reach into the camera body and ensure that the film is fully seated along it's track. Takes a bit of practice.
