Fortunately I’m a Rolleiflex 2.8F camera owner. Unfortunately the selenium meter is not working proparly. Therefore I could only use the 2.8 aperture. The aperture 2.8 indeed does a pretty good job with a certain amount of sharpening in post production. Though i’ve decided to have aperture, and shutter speed decoupled at a repairman cause sometimes you want to use smaller apertures e.g. on sport photography 🙂 By the way this is the last photo with aperture, speed coupled lightmeter restrictions.
Here is a simple clue about my retouching process made in photoshop:
Highpass filter with overlay for sharpening, level adjustment layer for contrast, and some layer masking to ensure not to have the background sharpened.
Indeed. You might try swapping the elements of a Rolleinar. Hardly can tell the difference. So if you do not know which element goes onto the taking or finding lens, should not worry, your photo taken will be nearly just as good as it would be in the proper order.
Short story: Went to a Sport event on Makarska – Croatia. One afternoon i took a walk at the sea, and this three sweet old “hat” was sitting on a bench, staring at a swimmer. If they were like 30 years younger they would’ve probably been in the sea bathing too. This time I only took my Rolleiflex automat for this trip. Not my favorite Rolleiflex though 🙂
Short stotry: The photo was taken with a Rolleiflex Old Standard. I put down my beloved TLR on the pavement of Krakow Main Square. Used a Kodak Ektar 100 Rollfilm, set the shutter for B and held down the shutter cable approx 30 sec. Et voilá 🙂
The photo was made with a Rolleiflex SL35 silver German edition. The film was a Kodak color plus 200, which i know is not the most likeable one, but when you run out of film in Rome, and don’t have any other store around, you’ve got to stick whith what you got.

Hi there friends!First post for me here, I’m the happy owner of a Rolleiflex 3.5F (in mint condition, offered for my 40th birthday) and also of a 2.8F planar (found on a flea market few weeks ago for a very low price 👌)Last Sunday, my 3.5F hit a small rock, and it damaged the lower film knob, which is now twisted. Since then, it’s impossible to pull it completely out and therefore impossible to take the spool off. I unscrewed and took the knob of, dismounted it and tried to un-twist the damaged outer part, but I can’t succeed in giving it its original shape back.So I’m searching for a remplacement part. I saw some similar knobs on some spare parts websites, but they’re not exactly the same and I can’t guess if they will fit my 3.5F so if you have this knob for 3.5F (with the 3 fixation screws it would be perfect, mine are not in a very good shape…) I’m your man!Thanks a lot for your attention!☺️ ...

Can anyone help I have a Rolleiflex model T1 grey, I've been trying to use the insert and get 16 shots but even though the counter moves I'm only getting 12 that's after two rolls. The numbers that move with each shot are not moving fully to the number viewing screen.Any advice? Thanks Justin ... See MoreSee Less
