Show off your TLR!
 
Hey, all the other camera dedicated fora here have a 'show us your camera' thread...

My new (to me) 1954 Rollei MX-EVS with the Schneider-K Xenar 3.5/75 before I change out the peeling front, top and back leathers with a custom cut from Morgan at CameraLeather.com ...

When I have the leather changed, I'll post the Two Toned Rollei photos too.

Well, here is one of my cameras (this is the Rolleicord IV). I've got a Ia Model 3 and a Vb too.

well, it's not exactly my Rolleiflex, but it used to be... the crank went away and a very small but absolutely necessary part with it, so I sold it for part.... and bought another one, grey that time. My first T was a very early one, 1958. The current one was built in 1959-1960. It's amazing how different the photos are between the two cameras. I prefered the first one, but this one is amazing too...

The Rolleis'

I have a 2.8E and it is off to Horst Wenzel for a much needed CLA and as Horst put after 50+ years - it is time. The 3.5T will go in after the 2.8E is back in hand. The T is just like new condition - with box even. Both are just a joy to shoot.

Gordy's Straps has designed a version for the Rolleiflex - and I have two on the way with neck pad. You might want to check with Gordy if you are looking for a strap.

The quality of the picture is not good, but I took it 10 minutes ago for this thread.

Ah. Thanks.
I've got a bottle of Scotish Mead on order. Will have to wait for that one. (By then the camera will likely be Two Toned!)

Some eastern TLRs. Not trying to compare them with a Rollei but, very much against the general opinion, I like the photos made with them. Probably a matter of luck with the lenses in these models (certainly a very good price/result relationship...).
Three Russian sisters (the Komsomolyets is more a grandmother than a sister) and a Czech cousin.

This is my Ricoh Diacord with one of my new straps that terrycioni ordered. Actually, it was an idea of Terry's that gave me the direction to come up with this strap design. Thanks Terry!

Thanks Gordy, I am waiting to get two! Excited as well.

Cheers. Terry.

OK. I got my custom leather kit from Morgan at CameraLeather.com to replace the peeling leather on my MXEVS. I thought, why do the whole thing...why not come up with something unique, so I went with granite (gray) leather on the front top and back and left the sides (which are in fine condition) and the center portion of the finder in black. Morgan tells me this is the first two tone Rollei that they've cut. I still need to clean up the old adhesive from where it has bleed out on to the chrome in the back, but the leather fit perfectly and was a breeze to put on.

Here's my sweetie Yashica-mat 124G (Jassikkamaatti as my finnish friend calls her), she was spanking new when I bought her and has seen some use since then, couple of good-looking battle scars on her. Sorry about the poor picture, It's almost morning here in Finland and my curtains are closed, so it's pretty dark here.

Oh, and the funny thing about my Yashica is that the lightmeter works! And its darn accurate. The batterydoor is stuck (or I haven't used enough strength) so I cant check that what kind of battery she has. I could guess that it is the Legendary PX625. The leather case is nearly falling apart so I have to find a new strap soon. I also have the close-up add-on lenses for it, but havent used them yet. Do they detoriate optical quality? Because the Yashinon lens is quite a killer stopped down to f.5.6 or f.8

Tags for the search engines: tlr size comparison compare yashica mamiya

People get far too worried about how big the Mamiya is. This example has the 135mm lens.

By the way, one of these cameras isn't mine.

I swear I had already posted this in this thread. Maybe I'm on drugs. Anyway, please forgive the crummy photo, it was cropped from a "family portrait" taken with a friend's {d-word} camera. :)

My TLR, serviced and I loaded it up with film for the first time last night :)

This is shot some months ago:


rolleistef 06-25-2007 12:57

how the hell do you manage to keep your cameras in such a perfect condition? Do you wear wild-silk gloves when talking photos with them? I take good care of my Rollei but it has little dents etc showing that the camera has been used the last 50 years, and I always use a camera case and... that's not fair!

I have a soft spot for my Lubitel as well. I like the softness and vignetting around the edges, especially when I'm shooting B&W.

it's a tele attachement. i've got one for my T and the quality is not particularly good. Big vignetting, loss of contrast... and focusing down to 3m (9ft)... but the camera looks like a cine camera with them attached...
Nice yashica btw!

And now to something completely different...

this is my first posting in this fantastic forum. I say hello to all members and I hope this strange, heavy (and ugly?) 35mm TLR from 1961 is of any interest for you.

2.8 C (Xenotar) and 2.8D (Planar)






Rolleiflex 2.8E (w/o meter), 2.8D (my favourite), 2.8C, 2.8F (standard GC), 2.8F (late MC but not yet adorned with the cheap White Face plate)

Welcome, that's one weird camera. It's not often to see an OM-2 compared to a TLR :)

I just bought a light-table. Perfect spot to admire the Rollei!


colincooperphoto 09-30-2007 17:49

Summilux thats a nice gathering of 2.8's. Please tell me that you shoot them!

Chris I like the light table shot!

Pherdinand 10-01-2007 12:13

five 'flex 2.8's in one house, jesus!!! how am i not suppose to wish i had one of them???

rolleistef 10-04-2007 07:57

"tell me when you shoot them" why shoot a Rolleiflex? It's a bit expensive a hobby isn't it? :D

Just curious, why is the 2.8D your favorite? what's special about it?

my Rollei T taken with its new competitor, a pntax k100D. I'm longing for squarish negs!!

Jerevan 10-24-2007 13:19

Chris, I can't help but feel inspired to get out and use the 'Cord when I see your light table shot. The 2.8s are really nice, but they are rare in Sweden and abroad they seem to cost more than I ever want to pay. Unless someone has a nice one to trade for my Hasselblad? :D

Otherwise, nice photos all round in the thread!

raid 11-03-2007 13:15

The 2.8D is basic and functional with its sharp 80mm/2.8 Planar lens but without a meter. It is still also my favorite. This model was produced in the year when I was born. It has to be special!

My wife just bought me a new Rolleiflex, bless her heart. It's an unusual version with the lever and knobs on different sides. Hope no one's jealous.......
