Rolleiflex Original

Rolleiflex Original

This is an original Rolleiflex, first sold in 1929. It's in adequate cosmetic condition, with paint and finish wear from normal use and handling over the last [counts on fingers] 90 or so years. Viewfinder image is dim- the mirror has some corrosion- but the groundglass is intact, and the nifty built-in bubble level is still working. Shutter speeds are decent from 1/15s and up. The lens is the better 75mm f3.8 Tessar, with some cleaning marks and haze. You should know that these cameras were designed to use 117 rollfilm, which is similar to (but not directly interchangeable with) 120 film. In other words: yes, this camera is working, if you take into account its various quirks- but it will not shoot standard 120 film, so we do not recommend that you buy it with the expectation that it's a turnkey Rolleiflex. Includes an original slip-on lens hood.
