Rolleiflex T, type 1 and 16 masking set

Santa got me a nice Rolleiflex T type 1 (gray). I was wondering if I can use the 16 masking set on that camera. Is this possible?

Does it have an oblong frame counter window? Is there a little slot in the film gate for the mask's switch?

It has an oblong frame counter window and seems that it has that switch too. Does that mean I can use them? Two more frames in a less rectangular shape on a 120 roll seems nice.

Damn! Mine has the serial 2126584 on the body. I guess I am out of luck. What a pity!
Many thanks for the info.

Guess you are not out of luck. When that small curved switch is there inside the filmgate then it can switch from 12 to 16 frames.
Open the back and push that switch with a wooden toothpick (NO Metal) and see if the indicator in the film counter has changed from 12 to 16.

btw All T's have that 12 / 16 switch. The Rolleiclubs information was not propperly copied from Claus Prochnows book pages. Rollei Report 2 states only the other things mentioned added after that serial number (e.g. Rolleikin provision) , not the 12/16 switch which was there from the beginning.

Make certain you get the version for the T not the Rolleicord. The one for the cord has a counter dial in the set and it won't work in the T.

It has been just now I read this. The one I have bought has nothing else but the film masking frame that goes in the chamber, two frame sets for the ground glass and two for the sports finder. I guess it must be o.k. for use on T.
I have been longing for so long for a rolleiflex and I just cannot wait for it to drop in my mailbox.

A typical mask set should look like this one :



Rolleiflex Mask Set for T and Magic (01) by Hans Kerensky, on Flickr

1) Case.
2) 4x5,5 cm Mask for the Filmgate.
3) 4x4 cm Mask for the Viewfinder Screen.
4) 4x4 cm Mask for the Sports finder.
5) 4x5,5 cm Mask for the Rollei Magic Viewfinder Screen.
6) 4x5,5 cm Mask for the Viewfinder Screen.
7) 4x5,5 cm Mask for the Sports finder.



Note that these can also be used on the Rolleimagic TLR's.
