My Rolleiflex 3.5F, I've only had it for about a week. I also own a Yashica-Mat but I am yet to take a photograph of it.

My Thrift Shop Find

I don't think I saw any Autocords in this thread, so here's one. This is my first TLR. I picked it up at a thrift shop for $25.

Mamiya C3

Hi,

This is the Mamiya C3 which I bought on eBay with 65mm and 180mm lenses.
I have replaced the light seals and taken the 65mm lens apart as much as I could to clean it, so now it sparkles.

After a 35mm camera I'm enjoying the huge focussing screen. I'm hoping to reduce my high percentage of dissapointing photos by composing more carefully, we'll see. It's certainly slowed me down :-)

I've been enjoying the TLR forum and will post a picture from the Mamiya when I get a result I like. The first film was dissapointing, but I probably have to take the blame for that myself :-(

Not a "full body" shot, but I like my 2.8f! Just bought a Rolleinar 2 and 3 close up lens set. I actually used the Rolleinar 3 with a 35 cron on my M8 for this shot.

My Two Honeys

One Eastern European, the other Nippon...

Spent the weekend taking the Diacord G to pieces and giving it a clean... was mostly successful save for the bulb setting not working anymore... oh well... that'll teach me not to open shutters for a look see... Am going to run a roll through it asap to see if the scratches on the lens are anything to worry about...

Yashica-C
Found this TLR at a flea market 2 weeks ago, got it very cheap. So far, it looks like it is in working order. I braved the NYC cold weather today to do my first test shots.

Another Rolliecord IV, the viewing screen is not as bright as the Yashicas'. I placed a salvaged fresnel lens on the viewing screen and made it a little brighter.

Eventually find it, my Rolleiflex 3.5F in Rolleimarin...

The lever above the lens port can be used to switch on or off the near focus accessory inside the shell. There is a magnifier at rear to magnify image on the ground glass so that you can focus even you have wear a diving mask.

Set of Zeiss Opton Mutar set of Tele 1.5X and Wide 0.7X. Although I mount them on RIII cameras (i.e. 2.8F, 2.8GX etc), with suitable adaptor rings the mutars can also be mounted on RII cameras (i.e. 3.5F etc).

The two Mutar has external filter thread of E67, Zeiss Opton has produced filter specifically for Mutars as shown.

Well, I did't compare them side by side as they are mutually exclusive, I won't bring Tele-Rolleiflex together with 2.8F and a Mutar 1.5X. I remember Mutar vignettes and to me it is not a bad thing.

May be I check the minimum focus distance tomorrow. For Tele-Rolleiflex, it isn't close enough and I have to use with a Rolleinar 0.35.

How can we forget this accessory for Rolleiflex TLR in Rangefinderforum.

This Rolleimeter can be mounted on top of a Rolleiflex TLR, this particular model is for 3.5 TLRs. With this accessory the TLR behaves like a rangefinder camera.

The Rolleimeter is used like a sport viewfinder but with rangefinder capability. The lever of Rolleimeter will move out by the TLR lens platform when the TLR focus closer than infinity and turn a mirror inside. This mirror project a image to the semi-silvered mirror at center of a 45 degree-angled glass strip and when object is in focus the projected image will overlap with the object observed.

Not sure whether this qualifies for TTL, it is more TTFL (Through The Finder Lens) than TTTL (Through The Taking Lens) The meter doesn't read a filter attached to the taking lens.

Depending on the nature of the filter I regard this as a good or bad thing. For a 25A (B&W red filter) I never got good results with a TTL system. Metering without filter and applying the filter factor works a lot better for me. If I don't have a handheld meter and removing the filter everytime I want to take a light reading is a pain

Seems an issue of the red sensitivity of the film and the meters I tried is to different. Yellow filters on a TTL system typically don't create issues here.

Well, I took this a bit "kitschy" picture in the summer of 2007 when I got the Rolleiflex T in perfect condition, but I like it (I even have it on my VISA card ). I have shot 50 rolls of film since. It is my smallest film camera, so I am not sure whter I can call it a "medium format" I really like using it and people definitely respond better when photographed with TLR than an SLR. But I really do often miss AE so I may go with the new Bessa III if it comes out at reasonable price.

Rolleiflex T was my first Rolleiflex twenty years ago, with its Tessar 75/3.5, I took a number of good photos at those old days. One point that I dislike is the awkward shutter release position make it difficult to stabilise at low shutter speed.
