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.

Hello!I have a rolleiflex automat model one (or early model two, depends on wich book do you belive... anyway, still has no mount on the viewing lens, and still has the older type finder). It works great, but the finder misses the inner mirror for the sport finder, and the springs that pop it open. It seems that it got hit sometime, so I wouldn't really mind changing the whole thing. The question is: does anyone have some spare parts, or even a complett finder? ... See MoreSee Less

To all of you Rolleiflex repair gurus, what substitutes do you use these days for the old Rollei A, B, and C lubricants that are mentioned in their repair manual?I have searched through various groups and web sites but have not found an answer to my question. Judging from where they are used, I am guessing that A is more of a grease that stays in place at various temperature ranges. I assume B and C are progressively lighter oils where C is something approximating Nyoil or sewing machine oil. ... See MoreSee Less
