There's a lot of tasty cameras here.
I thought it only right that I should show off my faithful Rolleiflex 3.5F. This is my main camera - everything else is just a backup.

Simple.

If you're young and good-looking, it might be *friendly* interaction.

But if you're old and unsightly, well, it'll have to involve some money.

I have a 3.5F planar (currently with Harry Fleenor for a full CLA) and an earlier version of automat model 2 with Xenar lens ( currently with Mark Hansen for shutter CLA).

As I really enjoyed using my 1st rollei, a Automat Xenar so I got the 3.5F planar almost immediately. I got the beater Tessar to experiment on/ pass the time while I wait for their return. The beater Tessar was a pleasant surprise and I bought at a far lower price than these 2 (and it still works).

Here are pics of them prior to them heading off for their CLA respectively.

I finally found one, in good shape (taking lens is really spotless, uncommon for a 2.8C).

Here it is, the TLR I have longed forever for. Only last month did i finally identify the camera as an Early Rolleiflex T and then found this guy.
This cutie looks and works like it has just exited the factory. Sorry for the iDork shot but I have no digital cameras anymore .

Ikoflex III, had a broken shutter, stuck winding mechanism and frame counter.
Looking forward to see the results of the roll of Ektar 100 I shot with it last week.

Thanks! The case came with the camera, missing it's front flap but still perfect for hooking a carrying strap...hood is an A36 FSU intended for an Industar -22.

Krikor does excellent work! He's worked on several of my rolleiflexes (spelling?) and I have never been disappointed. You'll be amazed at the buttery feel of the film transport. Enjoy your new camera.

Lovely cameras, but very sorry about Blackburn Peter. We've lost two good old Lancs clubs from the Prem this year.

Thanks Peter. There's dodgy things going on behind the scenes - the club may go bankrupt before the year's out Blackpool might go up on Saturday though, so helping the Lancashire ratio.

Back on topic, not used the 'cord or Yashica yet (Yashica was a bargain but the front elements have the dreaded "cleaning marks". The 'Cord , I actually paid going rate locally yesterday for that, it's in tidy condition, I've cleaned the mirror but will be keeping an eye out for brighter screen (for both Rolleis). The 'flex needs the shutter release and shutter giving a CLA, and the taking lens cleaning internally, but takes lovely images. Gotta run a few films through these beauties now the brighter weather's here.

Here is my current and completed TLR family and my customized Blythe doll, "Rollei"

My 3.5F came back from Harry's and I am still waiting for the 1st 3 rolls of film to be back from processing. I managed to snag a Yashica original lens cap and hood for the Yashica 635 for a bargain.

My Yashica 635


I am leaning more towards bringing my Tessar around these days as it has been raining heavily.
