Gave a quick Rolleiflex tut. for american sprinter Shania Collins. Who knows, she might decide later to change the sprinter shoe for photography. 🙂 You can find a photo with a Tele Rolleiflex in her hand at my Insta page.
The good thing in grabbing the photo bibs a bit earlier than the actual meeting starts, is to get a chance to meet the stars before on the track. I was lucky enough to capture Christian Taylor, the World Ranking leader in men’s Triple Jump, who was posing happily for my Tele Rolleiflex at the Gyulai István Memorial athletic event in Székesfehérvár. His profile can be seen at IAAF official website: Christian Taylor.
A few months ago i was asked for an Interview by Klára Szarka (curator, photo historian), to talk about the Rolleiflex cameras I use, and have in collection. After the interview which was held at the Lab4Art studio near Oktogon, we went out for a quick one hour photowalk to capture some people on the streets of Budapest. I grabbed a Rolleiflex 3.5F loaded with a Kodak Ektar 120 rollfilm. / The interview will be shown as part of an Éva Keleti exhibition this year. /
Had a trip in Oslo this year. I was more than happy to try out my new Tele Rolleiflex at Aker Brygge. The scans came out pretty sharp from the scanner. I used a Rollei RPX 400 Roll film. Quite happy with the results. Let me know what you think.

Ciao! Vorrei un consiglio sul cambio del focus screen sulla mia rolleiflex 2.8E! Pensavo di prendere un focus screen mamiya rb, tagliarlo, ed adattarlo sulla mia Rollei...bisognerà regolare l’ottica? Mettere spessori? Oppure i focus screen mamiya non richiedono modifiche con la 2.8E?Ho fatto lo stesso sulla mia Minolta autocord cds e non ho dovuto cambiare niente..spero sia così anche sulla mia Rollei 2.8E... ...

Inherited this Rollei from a friend. Shutter works. Finder is dysfunctional. I don’t think she used it very much. For parts. Want to trade for m42 Super-Takumar(s). Prefer 85mm or 105mm, or 90mm macro fd or m42, others considered. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm frequently using a Rolleiflex 3.5E with Xenotar. It's in mint condition and works like a clock (even in cold temperatures) so I'm really a happy camper there.The only thing bugging me is that the view finder lid is broken, so every time I need to flip it up, or close it down, I have to use great force, and the sound it makes is like dragging a container on a concrete floor. Not very discrete or worthy in any aspect... The magnifier can be folded up but with a lot of effort.With this post I'm making a new try to find a new top cover/view finder part. I've tried to mend it but it has had a big hit on the rear right corner and won't be sorted, unless you're a blacksmith or such.A couple of weeks ago I took my exam from a BFA in photography so I'm not made of money. The new piece can be as ugly as it wants to be, as long as it's working fine. Top priority for me is functional cameras, not collecting mint condition specimens for the trophy rack.Thank you. ...
