We have determined from the serial number that this handsome vintage Rolleiflex is a model 2.8C made between 1953-54. This model was particularly favoured by journalists and fashion photographers in the 1950s because of its’ faster film wind mechanism. This is not surprising since this camera's previous owner was a veteran journalist once stationed in Paris.
Lens: 80mm. Xenotar F2.8 made by Schneider - Kreuznach.
Viewing lens: Heidosmat 80mm. F2.8
Shutter: Synchro-compure; 1/500 – 1 sec. + B setting.
Other notable features: larger focusing knob, internal baffles, MX Sync.
As far as we can tell, the camera is in good working condition, but may need a professional CLA (clean, lubricate, and adjustment) to make sure it is in perfect working order since it has not been used for some time. There is some paint loss on the body and a small dent on the circular rim of the film crank (see 4th photo). But more importantly, the interior is clean, and the lens clear and unscratched.
We will include 3 rolls of old 120 film, and can provide the internet link to download a free Rolleiflex manual.
Measurements: approx. 8-1/2” high with viewing hood up; 5-1/2” high with viewing hood folded.
