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.

I posted this a few days ago in Learn Camera Repair with no response. I'm hoping a dedicated Rolleiflex group will have the answer. I just got a Rolleiflex 3.5 Automat purchased as non working because of the focus hood. It turns out that two rivets had popped out and the hood would no longer grip the hinge pin. I re-peened the rivets It opens and closes ok but the part that connects the front to back portions is missing. I haven't owned one of these or even handled one in 40 or 50 years so I have no clue what the part should be. The service manuals seem to treat the focus hood as a single part with no details of the individual pieces. Does anyone have some sort of illustration of the part on the right side that rides in the groove on the side of the rear hood and I would assume attaches to the small hole on the front part. If I can't find the part I will have a go at fabricating one.No photo description available.LikeAnswer ... See MoreSee Less

Hi I bought a Rolleiflex Rolleiflex Automat 6x6 - Model K4 / 50 3.8F for $250 at an estate sale. I have tried a few rolls through it and noticed some white spots in the sky, always in the same place. I took it to Nippon Photo Repair here in NYC and this is what they said: *We are not sure what the white spot in your photo is, it could be something else. Also, the lens is cloudy/hazy and you will have to use that as is (parts are no longer available). There is oil on the shutter blades and we will overhaul the shutter & winding & Focusing and we will also try to repair the W/L finder." this will cost $350 and I am not sure if it is worth it. Anybody have an opinion? ... See MoreSee Less

Hello fellow TLR fans. As you can see from the attached photo, my "new" ca. 1951 Automat MX arrived from Japan with the back door latch pin missing. Subsequent to the photo being taken, I did drill out the old brass shaft (or at least most of it) but I need a replacement pin. Does anyone in the U.S. have one to sell, please? I know a couple of eBay sellers have them, but one's in Germany and the other is in India but I would like to get this camera fixed sooner than later. Many thanks!! ... See MoreSee Less

To begin, this is my first post. I am impressed with the knowledge shared on here and did search for my answer before asking this question, but unfortunately I couldn't find anything. I recently picked up a Rolleicord IV that had been dropped in the past. Using YouTube videos I was able to take off the leatherette and access this area, where I have been able to re align the gears and reset the spring to repair the counter. Unfortunately, I have not found the proper way to remove this film winding knob. The post it is on has a noticeable wobble so I want to try and straighten it. There are no spanner holes that I can see, and efforts to unscrew or pry off have not made a difference. I am hoping someone can help me out before I damage something beyond what I was trying to repair. ... See MoreSee Less
