Description

Rolleiflex 3.5B Film Camera Professionally Tested in Amazing Condition with Zeiss Tessar 75mm Lens, Lens Cap & Leather Case

No signs of wear on the leather.

Lens is clear of fungus/scratches. Viewfinder is crystal clear.

The shutter and self timer operate perfectly, does not jam on slower shutter speeds.

Comes with Reflective Lens Cap and Leather Case

If you are a collector, this Rolleiflex is a MUST HAVE. This camera has been professionally inspected & tested for PERFECT execution. Personally, the Rollei is my favorite camera of all time and I hope this one can find a great home.

"Made in Germany in 1956, with typical Teutonic efficiency, this particular model is fitted with a 75mm F/3.5 Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar taking lens. It takes 120 roll film, giving twelve 6x6cm square images per roll. The quality of both the build and the results is excellent. The Tessar lens is a little soft wide open, but stopped down to around F/8.0 it is fantastically sharp!"

All Rolleiflex Automat series was produced between 1937-1956. Automat name stands to introduced automatic film counter in 1937; this counter senses the thickness of the film backing to accurately begin counting frames, obviating the need for the ruby window that forced the photographer to read the frame number off the back of the film itself. Rolleiflex TLR film cameras were most famous and the standard of news and studio photographers for decads. Many photographers still shoot with Rolleiflex TLR film cameras and black-and-white film.
