Buying Rolleiflex And Rollei TLR Camera

Buying Rolleiflex And Rollei TLR Camera

This page states the model Rolleiflex TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) serial number, when the model was made and the models specification, there has been given a approximately price in US Dollars which is a guideline when looking to buy, The bottom end price is what you would pay for an model in average condition and in-between for a camera in good condition and on the top end for very very good or mint condition TLR Rolleiflex/Rollei, Now there are a few Very rare or Exclusive Rolleiflex that I haven’t added on the list.

I do apologies that earlier manufactured TLR Rolleiflex models may not be displayed on this page, as they sadly are not so desired or collectable in todays marketplace.

Buying Rolleiflex And Rollei TLR Camera — 15 Comments

    Thanks for your publication on this site. From my own experience, there are occassions when softening upwards a photograph could possibly provide the photo shooter with a little bit of an inspired flare. More often than not however, the soft clouds isn’t just what exactly you had at heart and can often times spoil a normally good snapshot, especially if you anticipate enlarging them.

    I’m really into photography and would quite like a job involving it however i do NOT want to take pictures of people (weddings and stuff), i like taking arty/creative pictures. I also love writing and I have been thinking of writing for a teenage magazine and hopefully being able to get photography in there as well. Has anybody got any ideas on what job I could do that involves my kind of photography and writing and how I could get there. At the moment I’m 16..

    Thanks for this excellent article. One other thing is that nearly all digital cameras arrive equipped with a zoom lens that permits more or less of your scene to become included by way of ‘zooming’ in and out. These kinds of changes in target length tend to be reflected from the viewfinder and on significant display screen right at the back of the actual camera.

      Prime Lenses are totally superior to Zoom Lenses and have a unique quality and sharpness. if you don’t have Prime Lenses and not that bothered about quality of your images, then zoom lenses are okay.

      Hello Frank Kenton

      When Rolleiflex had perfected there TLR and really stood out in the world or photography they where very expensive, which spurred Rolleiflex on to make a cheaper version for the general photographer enthusiast and they created the Rolleicord, allot of people will Recommend that you chose the Rolleiflex models but I have come across people that prefer the Rolleicord to many of the earlier Rolleiflex models, as cameras are sometimes a very personal thing and it depend on its condition and price. I can not totally recommend Rolleiflex over Rolleicord even though I should. sorry that I couldn’t be more specific.

    Bonjour,

    I looking for a piece for a Rolleiflex TLR , but i don’t know the name and i never seen one! Rollei sell this piece of glass for corrected the “poor” planeity with 120 film. I read that we just need to place this piece of glass inside the body, and the glass to lean film. Do you know where a can find this piece of glass?

    Thank’s

      Hello François
      Thank you for your question, I know what you are talking about, it is the piece of glass to keep between the back pressure plate and exposed side of the film inside the camera (Optically Flat Glass Plate), I know they can be bought on eBay or you can get them of specialist Rollei/Rolleiflex shops around the world. I have filmed with a TLR which had one, but personally I don’t think it makes a different with or without one, and all my TLR cameras haven’t got one. Sorry I couldn’t help you more.

    This really helped out. I recently bought a rolleiflex, but the owner did not know the exact model and that he thought it was a 3.5. Now with this site, I was able to check the serial number of my rollei and turns out it is in fact an Automat Type 4

    I have many different kinds of cameras and makes as I have become a little bit of a hoarder, they all have something unique about them, but the camera I love the most is the Rollei/Rolleiflex 🙂

      Do you like it because it is sort of like a miniature view camera or do you like it because of the 6 x 6 format framing? The lens is very good on the camera itself very sharp images. I know I like the challenge I received with working with a Rolliflex it forces you to rethink your composition. Have you used a digital version I just Googled them they seem quite expensive but I wonder if there is a noticeable difference in quality.

        The Rollei/Rolleiflex’s just have a lovely handling to them, they work really really well and they are very reliable, just beautiful craftsmanship and as you said great lens and creates a very sharp images, maybe it is looking down onto a screen which makes you look at an image slightly differently and I love taking time getting all the elements right, really thinking to compose your desired shot, brings me back to the basics which I sometimes take for granted using Digital, but then Digital has its limits at this moment in time 🙂

        it was a back up camera and spent most of it’s life on the shelf at his studio. It did need a CLA as it had a touch of fungus starting on the interior of the taking lens. While I don’t use my Yashica as much as my Mamiya, I consistently get excellent results with it. For those wanting to get into medium format film photography without spending an arm and a leg, I highly recommend the Yashica TLR. Of course, with the caveats about certain models listed in the article above.

      Gabor,You have a smooth and colourful writing style. It informs and entertains. I think you have found another media to express your creativity. When you write your photographic history it reads somewhat like ours, well Helen’s in particular, in that we went from small digital(Leica) to larger to film three years ago. I started with old Russian’s camera which often broke the film.Anyway do you have a server and if so who? Cheers Eriv
