That's an original and very effective portrayal of a lovely camera, Jake. I really like Mamiya TLRs; I think the Mamiya TLR system is brilliant.

PS. By the way, it's great to see someone your age so well grounded in film and here to share the experience with the rest of us.

A birthday gift from a very thoughtful and generous fellow vintage camera enthusiast. Rolleiflex Old Standard type 622. Aside from a stuck shutter, and a little verdigris on the brass bits, she is in very good condition, as is the case. Also included the original lens cap.

Well this should be fun

New (to me) Minolta Autocord with Seikosha MX shutter and 'Chiyoko' Rokkor.

It's cosmetically rough but all the looking and seeing and moving bits do their job.

Looks like mine when I got it nickthetasmaniac, they have a bright view finder and other than the focus lever are a well built unit . Camera Leather did a new suit of clothes for mine , a good clean of the shutter lenses and mirror box and has never missed a beat

Mine's already had a refurb and a new skin is on it's way from Morgan - should polish up nicely I reckon

Yaschicamat 124 - First TLR

Well...this is my first TLR. It was recommended to be by a photographer friend of mine when told him I was thinking about getting a medium format camera. First he offered up his Hasselblad but that's too rich for my blood at this point.

Found this nice example and bought it. Everything works with the exception of the light meter (even with new 1.3 battery). No biggy.

It's fun to shoot with and is a piece of functional art. shot with my Sony A7ii 55/1.8

Bought this for $97 on ebay. I just developed my first roll yesterday. Surpisingly, all speeds, including 1/500 seem to be spot on! Everything's great except the leather and the focus knob, but there's enough focus knob left to use it. Someday I'll take it apart and make a new focus knob but for now it just works too well!

Ikoflex I by steveod2007, on Flickr
The latest addition to my TLR collection , this one appears little used and required only cleaning of glass and mirror and , a little lube on the main focus shaft and a general clean of exterior surfaces , having exercised the shutter a few times the speeds appear to have come ok so its time to load a film

Started in photography just over 40 year ago, with a 6x6 folding Mamiya. Just of now, I am rebooting into MF with this C330f.

Beautiful setups! I agree with the sentiment of my fellow C330 user when I say, "Pfft, fixed lenses."

I also have a 635, so I guess I either need interchangeable lenses or multiple formats Had a 124G, but traded it to a buddy. Great camera, though.

Although I prefer my 5x7 & love my Leica rangefinder. The Rolleiflex is the perfect compromise. In the darkroom, I'll take a larger negative every time. This Rolleiflex T came off ebay for a few hundred dollars and since Harry Fleenor's magic, it's gone everywhere in the mountains. The Canadian Rockies, Dolomites....here on the Tour du Mont Blanc. If I had to have just one camera....this would be it. Did I mention that besides Dagors on LF, Tessars are my favorite lens....I can't wait to get the cz tessar 35mm 3.5 that Mr Miyazaki is working on for my Leica MP

That hood is just a little insane!

I have been thinking about getting a wide for the TLR since I bought my C330.

I have the 65mm lens set and that ridiculous hood waiting for me on Christmas day. Until then I have to make do with my 80mm - oh, and this.



It's a Czechoslovakian Flexaret Standard, made in 1964. 3.5 Tessar-type viewing and taking lens's, Compur-type shutter. Lovely in use, I've yet to have my first film through it developed.

I've been busy with my new Rolleiflex T that I won in the RFF Vivian Maier competition! It works like a dream - although I haven't seen any images from it yet

This lot is going to set me back AUD$160 for dev & hi-res scan at my lab Can't wait to be in a living situation where I can start developing at home.

A coworker handed me over this Rolleiflex two weeks ago with the nice words: " A camera like this should be used."
So after a Seagull 4B-I (sold) and a Mamiya C-3 (sold) I´m back in the TLR business! (And my Rollei 35 has a big brother now)
